Few things seemed more incongruous on children’s television in 1989 than Ringo Starr‘s time on PBS’ show, ‘Shining Time Station’ (apart, of course, from when George Carlin took over for Ringo a year later). Starr is about to make the year spent as ‘Mr. Conductor’ look perfectly normal later this year when he lends his talents to a Cartoon Network special of ‘The Powerpuff Girls.’

Hypable is reporting that Starr will not play himself (as he did on ‘The Simpsons‘), but rather Fibonacci Sequins, who is the “most famous flamboyant mathematician” in all of Townsville, the fictional town where the animated show takes place. Starr will also sing a song, ‘I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl.’

For those of you who didn’t have young daughters or nieces in the early 21st century, ‘The Powerpuff Girls’ ran on the Cartoon Network from 1998 until 2005. It featured three girls – Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup – who are repeatedly called on to defend Townsville from a rotating cast villains, most notably the evil monkey Mojo Jojo. The show also spawned a hit 2002 movie.

The show received praise for its stylized animation, message of female empowerment and pop culture references that adults could enjoy. One episode, called ‘Meet the Beat-Alls,’ dealt with four of the show’s villains forming a band, and featured references to approximately 65 Beatles songs.
