CLIP: Nickelodeon’s “TMNT” Meet Their 1980s Counterparts

TMNTCowabunga! Dust off your action figures, because for an upcoming episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the series is revisiting its retro roots. On Sunday, March 27, the Nickelodeon animated series will reunite the actors who voiced the iconic 1980’s cartoon in an unbelievable new adventure. My inner-child is clapping her hands, because I lived for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

In this new half-hour episode, the Turtles are transported to another dimension where they meet their ’80s alternate-reality counterparts and then all eight Turtles battle to eliminate both the ’80s Krang and Kraang Sub-Prime. In a nod to the fans, the episode will travel between the ’80s 2D- and the CG-animation and offer a glimpse of a comic book world reminiscent of Kevin Eastman’s Mirage Studios.

Actors Cam Clarke, Rob Paulsen, Barry Gordon and Townsend Coleman reprise their roles as Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo and actor Pat Fraley will voice Krang for the first time since the original series.

Check out a clip from the upcoming episode:

Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles voice cast includes: Seth Green (Robot Chicken) as Leonardo, Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings) as Raphael, Rob Paulsen (Planet Sheen) 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 (The Goonies) reoccurs as Slash.
