Original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 80's Voice Cast Reunite to Reprise their Roles for Hour-Long Special

Courtesy Nickelodeon
This Friday, March 14, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon, fans of those pizza-loving mutants are in for a nostalgic treat. The hour-long "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" episode, “Wormquake!,” will reunite the original 80’s voice cast of Cam Clarke, Rob Paulsen, Barry Gordon and Townsend Coleman as they return to reprise their original roles as Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo.  In the hour-long episode, "Leo must decide whether to risk his brothers’ lives or ask for Splinter’s help when facing Shredder’s deadly new assassin. Donnie must also put aside his rivalry with Casey in order to uncover a new Kraang plot."

Nickelodeon's announcement also clued us in to more fun to go along with the special:

Viewers can prove their Turtle fandom online in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Wormquake Play Along,” a play along experience where fans will get a random set of 12 tiles – each one being a cut-out from a scene in the series. Some tiles will be from the episode “Wormquake!,” while others are not. As players watch the episode to see if there is something that is in their grid, they can tap it to toss a ninja star on it. At the end of the episode “Wormquake!,” players will get a Turtle fan rating of 1-5 shells based on how many tiles they spotted correctly. Kids who get a 5-shell rating get shown a printable Turtle fan certificate.

You can also check out new episodes of "Sanjay and Craig" and "Breadwinners" starting at 10:30 a.m. ET on Saturday, March 15.
