Nickelodeon’s surprisingly effective modern incarnation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will return to the past in “Transdimentional Turtles”, a new special airing on the kid’s network later this month.
Voice actors of the current series Seth Green (Leonardo), Sean Astin (Raphael), Greg Cipes (Michelangelo) and will be sharing screen time with the voice actors of the wildly successful 80’s cartoon. Unlike the previous crossover special, the original cast will all be present this time including Cam Clarke (Leonardo), Barry Gordon (Donatello), Townsend Coleman (Michelangelo) and Rob Paulsen as both classic Raphael and modern Donatello.
If you think the 80’s turtles look bizarre in the modern CG style, take a look at the footage below (courtesy of IGN). …they almost look like Disney World mascots with animatronic heads.
The episode is scheduled to air on Sunday, March 27th at 11am ET/PT.
