Mew Mew Power follows the adventures of five girls who possess the powers of endangered animals and must battle aliens who want to destroy mankind - when they're not busy with homework and boyfriends, that is.
It all starts when an ordinary high school girl becomes infused with the DNA of an almost extinct wildcat. Transformed into a crime-fighting cat, she must now find the rest of her crew as soon as possible so together they can save earth.
The show follows 4Kids' formula for taking the hottest properties from Japan and localizing them for kids around the world.
Mew Mew Power boasts a history of success in Japan as a comic book that inspired a highly rated television series. The Japanese merchandise program consisted of over 20 licensees creating over 200 different products. The series will premiere on 4Kids Entertainment's Fox Box.

Fans of the original shoujo manga/anime series Tokyo Mew Mew have put their noses up to the Americanization of Ichigo (now Zoe) and friends.

After viewing a pre-release last summer, fans weren’t as disappointed as they wanted to be. What did get to them, however, was the cultural shift from a consortium of five friends to a leader and her team.
