Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series is going to get a big blast from the past on the March 27th episode, when the Turtles meet… the Turtles. Yes, you rad it right! We are going to have a best nostalgic moment ever!
The episode, “Trans-Dimensional Turtles,” will feature an appearance by the 1980s animated versions of the TMNT characters, with the original voice cast reprising their roles.
The modern Turtles in the upcoming episode– Seth Green as Leonardo, Sean Astin as Raphael, Rob Paulsen as Donatello and Greg Cipes as Michelangelo — are transported to another dimension where they meet their ‘80s alternate-reality counterparts, once more voiced by Cam Clarke, Rob Paulsen (who’s been a part of both series!), Barry Gordon and Townsend Coleman as Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo, respectively.
All eight Turtles will team up to eliminate both the 1980s animated Krang and the current TMNT villain, Kraang Sub-Prime. The episode will feature different types of animation as well, as the modern Turtles go into their 1980s counterparts’ 2D world, before both teams travel back into the modern show’s CG-animated environment.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: “Trans-Dimensional Turtles” airs Sunday, March 27th at 11:00am ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
