TMNT’s Original 80’s Voice Cast Reunites for Nickelodeon Special

Cam Clarke, Rob Paulsen, Barry Gordon and Townsend Coleman return to voice Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo in ‘Wormquake!’ a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles special airing March 14 on Nickelodeon.

The original 80’s voice cast, Cam Clarke, Rob Paulsen, Barry Gordon and Townsend Coleman return to reprise their original roles as Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo, respectively, in a new episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Nickelodeon. In the hour-long episode, “Wormquake!,” premiering at a special time, Friday, March 14, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT), 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.

The madness continues Saturday, March 15, at 10:30 a.m. with a new episode Sanjay and Craig. In “Flip Flopas,” when Sanjay and Craig and the gang eat a candy that makes good things taste bad forever, they set out on a quest to find an antidote. Then in “Chill Bill,” a cool bass player who lives in an underground convenience store threatens to break up Sanjay and Craig’s friendship.  At 11:00 a.m., (ET/PT), a new episode of Breadwinners follows. In “Lost at Pond,” when SwaySway and Buhdeuce get stranded in the middle of the Great Pond, they’re forced to level up into ‘Survivor Ducks.’ Then in “From Bad to Nurse,” SwaySway and Buhdeuce show off their ‘bread-side’ manner by  nursing their number one customer back to health.

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.
