The Beatles' Ringo Starr will wear a dress to join The Powerpuff Girls for their TV comeback.

The drummer is the special guest star in the return of The Powerpuff Girls, an animated show which ran on Cartoon Network between 1998 – 2005. A new series of the programme starts on US television on January 20 with Starr appearing alongside the characters Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup in the first episode.

Scroll down to see Starr appear in a clip from the new episode, titled 'Dance Pantsed', in which he plays Fibonacci Sequins, a flamboyant mathematician who is kidnapped by Power Puff Girls' enemy, Mojo Jojo. In the clip, the animated Starr wears a yellow dress and sings "I wish I was a Power Puff Girl, I'd fly through the sky, shoot sparkly stars out of my eyes."

Yesterday (January 6), it was reported that Eurythmics will reform to pay tribute to The Beatles as part of this year's Grammy Awards celebrations. Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will play live during a TV special to air in February as will Maroon 5, Alicia Keys, John Legend and John Mayer.
