'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' returns - preview

By
Nostalgia alert... look who's back! '80s kids telly favourite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has undergone a 2012 makeover and returns to our screens edgier, funnier and with a stellar all-star cast to boot.

The new CG-animated action comedy follows the trials and tribulations of pizza-loving mutant brothers Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo.

With playground gossip of yesteryear often centred around 'who is your favourite?' and with American Pie actor Jason Biggs and Lord of the Rings star Sean Aston voicing two of the iconic characters (Leonardo and Raphael), the water cooler chitter chatter is set to encapsulate a whole new generation of fans... as well as indulging those first-time round enthusiasts.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Original 'Raphael' Rob Paulsen returns to the franchise, this time as Donatello, and cheeky chappy Greg Cipes completes the foursome as the loveable Michelangelo.

Mutant rat, and teacher of everything Ninjutsu, Master Splinter (voiced by Hoon Lee) is back, having undergone a revamp. The Nickelodeon team has given the loveable Sensei a makeover befitting of his no-nonsense character. The previous 'Yoda-esque' appearance has been beefed up to reveal a more statuesque father figure, more than capable of taking on nemesis Shredder (Kevin Michael Richardson) who also returns to the series.

Slightly younger and sassier than in previous incarnations, April O'Neill (Mae Whitman) completes the cast lineup as confidante and friend to the brothers green.

Set in present day New York, the series kicks off with the four brothers first emerging from their sewer home to discover 'what lies above'. Battling evil The Kraang and embarking on a journey of self-discovery, this new improved animation series is guaranteed to delight both old and new audiences - brace yourself 'dudes', Turtle Power is back!

Watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mondays from October 1 at 5pm on Nickelodeon - http://www.nick.co.uk/shows/turtles #nickturtlesuk
