The show will debut in 2012 on Nickelodeon. While I’m generally a bit cranky about reboots and remakes, I’m actually tentatively optimistic about this new series — Nickelodeon’s done good work before, and knowing a whole new generation of kids will have their own version of the Turtles to obsess over kinda warms my heart.
While Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 promises to bring fans the much anticipated first ever big screen appearance of favorite mutant characters Bebop and Rocksteady, Nickelodeon's animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV series is beating them to the punch. The two classic villains are set to battle Leo, Mikey, Don and Raph on this Sunday's episode...And they have a new, improved look. We have a clip from the episode, which you can check out below.
J.B. Smoove, who kids surely won't known from his stellar work opposite Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm, will play Bebop in The Pig and The Rhino, while Fred Tatasciore is taking on the voice of Rocksteady. They'll both hit the small screen when brand-new episodes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles return March 8, at 11:00 a.m. on Nickelodeon. In the action-packed episode, Donnie finishes a new batch of retro-mutagen, in hopes of saving Karai, while the Turtles find themselves hunted by Shredder's new vengeful henchmen, Bebop and Rocksteady.Read More

To celebrate the upcoming Sept. 29 launch of the all-new, CG-animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Nickelodeon is launching an immersive, experiential campaign at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2012, 'Turtles vs. Foot', recruiting fans to fight for good alongside the Turtles or join the forces of evil with the Foot Clan.
Beginning Thursday, July 12, Turtles and Foot Clan street teams will be in downtown San Diego and at San Diego International Airport distributing recruitment propaganda encouraging fans to choose a side. Throughout the city, wild postings, guerrilla chalk art on sidewalks and outdoor video projections will drive fans to a mobile website, m.turtlesvsfoot.com, where they can also choose their side and participate in missions to achieve real-time rewards and receive a phone call from either Splinter or Shredder.Read More
Raphael (Astin) is the biggest and toughest of the brothers, and has little patience for stealth operations, hiding in the shadows or keeping his voice down. Leonardo (Biggs), considered to be the leader of the turtles, aspires to be the perfect hero around his three smart-aleck brothers. Donatello (Paulsen) is the reclusive, yet utterly brilliant team inventor who is able to cobble together fantastic weapons from things scrounged from a trash heap. And Michelangelo (Cipes) is enthusiastic, easily distracted, loves pop culture and is always trying to get in on the latest fad.
Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles begins as the turtles emerge from their hidden lair in the sewers for the very first time, ready to confront the wondrous and hostile world of New York City and face enemies more dangerous and pizza more delicious than anything they could have imagined. Funnier and with more Ninjitsu than ever before, the show will explore the camaraderie of four teenage brothers learning to rely on themselves and one another as they unravel the mystery of their existence and grow to become the heroes in a half-shell that they are destined to be.Read More
