Nickelodeon has announced an air date for an all-new, CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. It will air as a special one-hour television event on Monday 1st October, at 5:00 p.m., just two days after the U.S. premiere. Bringing the Turtles up from the sewers with the mythology and comedic sensibility for a new generation of fans, the series stars Jason Biggs (American Pie) as “Leonardo,” Rob Paulsen (Planet Sheen) as “Donatello,” Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings) as “Raphael” and Greg Cipes (Teen Titans) as “Michelangelo.” Additional cast members rounding out this iconic hit franchise include Mae Whitman (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) as “April O’Neil,” Hoon Lee (Royal Pains) as “Master Splinter” and Kevin Michael Richardson (Penguins of Madagascar) as “Shredder.” The half-hour series is layered with action, fantasy and comedy, and draws inspiration from both American and Japanese animation, showcasing a stylistic effect of a printed comic. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will air regularly on Mondays at 5:00 p.m.
