Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 1980s Turtles Being Showcased On Animated Series



When Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles return at the end of the March, the Turtles will be experiencing a unique situation, when they meet themselves. The upcoming episode “Trans-Dimensional Turtles” will feature the voice talent of the 1980s animated versions of the characters.

All of the original voice actors, Cam Clarke, Rob Paulsen, Barry Gordon and Townsend Coleman as Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo, are returning to reprise their roles.

This episode will focus on the modern Turtles, being transported to another dimension, which allows them to meet their ’80s counterparts. This time-transportation will let all of the Turtles team up in order to fight Krang and the more recent villain, Kraang Sub-Prime. Pizza is likely to be included.

This eposide is bringing back all of the original cast from the widely popular 1980s series.

This might hold fans over before the live-action turtles return to the big screen on June 3, 2016 in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: “Trans-Dimensional Turtles” airs Sunday, March 27th at 11:00am ET/PT on Nickelodeon.

      Right? Didn’t anyone watch that movie and think ‘Hey, we already did this’ ? Turtles Forever was freaking great, too

    They’re doing this again? I will say that it was funny the first time.

    Personally, I would love for them to go back to their roots when they were very violent, weird and gritty. Like they did in the original comics, before they turned them into kids cartons. That’s the real version of the Turtles that I love. I want to see them being raised to become assassins, start questioning their moral stance and slowly move away from their murdering ways and more towards hero status. There are some very interesting stories and character development potential there. Sadly, I doubt they will ever go there again. The Turtles are too popular with kids to make a real darker version of them.
