Who didn’t love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series from the 80s? Okay, granted, kids who were born in the last decade or those who were too young to watch the show when it originally aired, probably could care less. Those same people may have mad love for the current Nickelodeon TMNT series that has been running for the last couple of years. Now the generations can finally come together as the greatest TMNT teams of two different centuries crossover this month.
Trans-Dimensional Turtles aires on March 27 at 11:00 AM ET/PT and features characters from both series meeting up for the first time.
In “Trans-Dimensional Turtles,” all eight Turtles must battle to eliminate both the ‘80s Krang and Kraang Sub-Prime. After meeting their ‘80s counterparts in a 2D-animation world, the entire clan moves back into a CG-animation dimension, giving their new retro friends a taste of their realm. Additionally, in another dimensional twist, the episode will offer a glimpse of the Turtles in a comic book world resembling Kevin Eastman’s Mirage Studios comic book series.
This is one of the most interesting and, to me, the craziest crossover I’ve seen since X-Men ’92 met their present day selves.
I’ll be honest, I’m kind of interested in watching this to see if the 3D turtles will be 3D when they are in 2D world and vice-versa. It could be one of the coolest bits of fun on television in recent years, or it could completely fall apart. In either case, this episode is going to be so much better than that upcoming TMNT live action movie.
