It looks like the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the 1980s cartoon are set to make an appearance in the new animated show.

Although, we have to remind everyone, this isn’t the first time this has happened.

The crossover is set to happen on March 27th in an episode called Trans-Dimensional Turtles but here’s the really cool part, the original voice actors are returning too!

In the episode, the modern Turtles — Seth Green as Leonardo, Sean Astin as Raphael, Rob Paulsen as Donatello and Greg Cipes as Michelangelo — are transported to another dimension where they meet their ‘80s alternate-reality counterparts, once more voiced by Cam Clarke, Rob Paulsen (who’s been a part of both series!), Barry Gordon and Townsend Coleman as Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo, respectively. The original voice of Krang, Pat Fraley, will also be heard on the episode, reuniting with the 1980s TMNT cast for the first time since that series.

The eight mutant heroes will team-up to destroy Krang from both shows and will visit both univerese (CGI and 2D) in the episode.

Check out the pic below of Cam Clarke, Barry Gordon, Townsend Coleman and Pat Fraley. Oh and the trailer for the episode is at the bottom of the page.

Heroes in a half shell? That’s Turtle power…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
