Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to feature return of ’80s Turtles


Now here’s something old-school fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles should be excited about. Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will feature an upcoming crossover event that will include the 1980s Turtles and Krang. How is this possible? Time travel, of course! The episode will air Sunday, March 27th, at 11 a.m. PT/ET.

The CG-animated Turtles will time travel and meet their 2D-animated ’80s counterparts in “Trans-Dimensional Turtles.” To add icing on the cake, the original voice actors will be reprising their roles with Cam Clarke as Leonardo, Rob Paulsen as Raphael, Barry Gordon as Donatello and Townsend Coleman as Michelangelo. Pat Fraley will also reprise his role as Krang.

If that’s not enough, the episode will also pay tribute to the original comic book version from Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird.

“In “Trans-Dimensional Turtles,” all eight Turtles must battle to eliminate both the ‘80s Krang and Kraang Sub-Prime. After meeting their ‘80s counterparts in a 2D-animation world, the entire clan moves back into a CG-animation dimension, giving their new retro friends a taste of their realm.”

“Season four of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles follows the Turtles as they embark on their most epic adventure yet – outer space! Allied with a cyborg known as the Fugitoid (voiced by David Tennant), the Turtles hurdle through space, meet strange and bizarre alien creatures, and combat galactic monsters all in a race against time to save planet Earth.”

The new Turtles show, which launched in 2012, features Seth Green (Robot Chicken) as Leonardo, Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings) as Raphael, Rob Paulsen (Animaniacs) as Donatello, Greg Cipes (Teen Titans) as Michelangelo, Mae Whitman (Parenthood) as April O’Neil, Hoon Lee (Royal Pains) as Master Splinter and Kevin Michael Richardson (Penguins of Madagascar) as Shredder. Josh Peck (Drake & Josh) is Casey Jones and Corey Feldman, who voiced Donatello in the live-action movies, reoccurs as Slash.
