The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are making an animated come back, and here's your first look at the new character designs. The new series is being developed by Nickelodeon, and it will be developed using CG animation. According to executive producer Ciro Nieli, "The four turtle protagonists, who previously could only be distinguished by the color of their masks, will each have 'more individual attributes.'" Judging by the image above the look pretty similar to me.
The series is set to debut in 2012 on Nickelodeon. I'm a huge fan of the TMNT crew. I grew up watching the original cartoon, and reading the comics, I doubt I'll watch this new series, but I hope it's good enough for my kids to enjoy.
Viacom bought the rights to the TMNT franchise from Mirage Group and 4Kids Entertainment for $60 million back in 2009. I'm sure we'll eventually see a new movie made as well.
What are your thoughts on this new TMNT TV series?
