Nickelodeon’s TMNT to Bring Back the 80’s Ninja Turtles in March
The new time-traveling episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will set the radical worlds to collide on March 27, Sunday at 11 a.m. ET/PT. The 30-minute episode entitled Trans-Dimensional Turtles features the voice cast of the 1980s TMNT cartoon Rob Paulsen, Cam Clarke, Townsend Coleman and Barry Gordon as the modern day Turtles who are transported to another dimension where they meet their 1980’s alternate reality counterparts. Also, actor Pat Fraley will be reunited with the classic toon cast to reprise his character as Krang.
The episode follows the eight Turtles in joining the forces to fight the ‘80s Krang and Kraang Subprime. After encountering their retro equivalents in a 2D animation world, the whole crew goes back to the CG animation dimension, which will give their new friends a feel of their 3D realm. The episode will also offer a preview of the Turtles in a comic-book world that resembles the Mirage Studios comic series (Kevin Eastman).
Fans can click on Nick.com to play a new game set in the 1980s Turtles’ world: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Kickin’ It Old School starting March 21. Players can travel all over the city streets and across the rooftops charging through Foot Ninjas in order to diffuse all the dimensionizers planted by Krang.
The 4th season of the present-day Turtles follows the heroes on an exciting journey through outer space. Joined with a cyborg named Fugitoid (David Tennant), the Turtles dash through space, encounter weird alien creatures and fight galactic monsters in a chase against time to save planet Earth.
