Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Premiere Date Set image
Last month, we shared the new trailer for Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, and a week from today, those fans of the pizza-eating reptiles attending Comic Con in San Diego will have the opportunity to see some never-before-seen footage from the series at the panel. And now the countdown to the actual series can officially begin because the premiere date has been set.

Executive produced by Ciro Nieli, Joshua Sternin and J.R. Vengtimilia, the CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will bring Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael back to the small screen, with actors Sean Astin, Jason Biggs, Greg Cipes and Rob Paulsen among those set to voice roles in the series. Parenthood's Mae Whitman is on board to voice the role of April O'Neil. The trailer promises more martial arts fighting and pizza-craving for the turtles, as well as the threat of Shredder.

Entertainment Weekly shared the news today, stating that Nick would make the official announcement on Saturday but that the series is set to make its debut on Nickelodeon on Saturday, September 29 at 11:00 a.m. with two back-to-back (shell-to-shell?) episodes. I was raised to believe that cartoons always taste best when served up on Saturday mornings, so I'd consider this very good news for the Turtles.

Here's the information for the Comic Con panel set up for next week.
