The heroes in a half shell are coming back! Nickelodeon has acquired the rights to broadcast the original 1987 animated series “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” All 193 episodes will debut on Nickelodeon’s digital platforms later this month, followed by airings on Nickelodeon channels worldwide.

This news was announced by TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman at San Diego Comic-Con during the panel for the upcoming movie “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.” Eastman shared that the acquisition allows fans to revisit the show that started it all, with the voices and humor we remember.

The classic cartoon brought Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo to life for the first time. It ran from 1987-1996 and was created by Fred Wolf. The show’s catchy theme song was written by Chuck Lorre, years before he became a sitcom hitmaker.

Nickelodeon is bringing the Turtles back ahead of the August 2 release of its new computer-animated movie “Mutant Mayhem.” This marks Nickelodeon’s first CG theatrical film. It follows the Turtles as they venture into the human world and try to be accepted as normal teens through heroic acts.

The Turtles franchise has exploded since its comic book origins in 1984. There have been multiple animated series, live-action shows, and blockbuster films. Nickelodeon revived the property with a new CG-animated show in 2012.

By bringing back the OG animated series, Nickelodeon is tapping into nostalgia while promoting its new take on the heroes. Fans can enjoy the old and new side-by-side.
