Ringo Starr's 'Powerpuff Girls' Cameo Is Psychedelic And Flashy

Being a Beatle might be great, but it doesn't give you super powers.

In Cartoon Network's all-new "Powerpuff Girls" special, premiering Jan. 20, Ringo Starr makes a guest appearance as Fibonacci Sequins, a famous, flamboyant mathematician. In a new music video from the special, Starr's Sequins is joined by Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup for the song "Wish I Was a Powerpuff Girl" as he dreams of being a crime-fighting superhero.

While it's a little odd to see a cartoon Starr singing such a silly song, the video is full of flashy, vibrant animation that will make any "Powerpuff" fan nostalgic. There's also a heavy dose of trippy, psychedelic visuals that evoke the "2001: A Space Odyssey" Star Gate sequence -- weird, but kinda cool?

In the end, Ringo has a positive message for the kids: peace and love, y'all.

The "Powerpuff Girls" special, "Dance Pantsed," debuts on Cartoon Network on Jan. 20 at 7:30 p.m. EST, following a 10-episode "Powerpuff Girls" marathon airing the day before.
