David Tennant To Star In A Special Episode Of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles With An 80s Twist
David Tennant is set to star in a very special episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The episode sees worlds collide as the voice cast of the 1980s Turtles, Cam Clarke, Rob Paulsen, Barry Gordon and Townsend Coleman joins forces as Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo, respectively, in “Trans-Dimensional Turtles,” a new episode of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles debuting in the USA on Sunday, March 27, at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT). In this new half-hour episode, the Turtles are transported to another dimension where they meet their ‘80s alternate-reality counterparts. Actor Pat Fraley also reunites with the ‘80s cast for the first time since the original series premiered to reprise his role as Krang.
In “Trans-Dimensional Turtles,” all eight Turtles must battle to eliminate both the ‘80s Krang and Kraang Sub-Prime. After meeting their ‘80s counterparts in a 2D-animation world, the entire clan moves back into a CG-animation dimension, giving their new retro friends a taste of their realm. Additionally, in another dimensional twist, the episode will offer a glimpse of the Turtles in a comic book world resembling Kevin Eastman’s Mirage Studios comic book series.
Season four of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles follows the Turtles as they embark on their most epic adventure yet – outer space! Allied with a cyborg known as the Fugitoid (voiced by David Tennant), the Turtles hurdle through space, meet strange and bizarre alien creatures, and combat galactic monsters all in a race against time to save planet Earth.
