The long-awaited Goonies reunion on Nickelodeon's animated hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finally takes place this week. Corey Feldman's first episode as the voice of a recurring character is set to premiere Saturday, Nov. 30, at 11 a.m. (ET). Feldman plays opposite his old Goonies co-star Sean Astin in the series. After Raphael's pet turtle, Spike, drinks some mutagen, he turns into the hulking, six-foot Slash — whose gravelly voice is supplied by Feldman.
"He turns into an equal ally with the Turtles in size, stature and personality," Feldman says. "He's the perfect companion to Raphael, and they immediately become best friends." Feldman remains mum on plot specifics but says he has already lent his voice to a handful of episodes, with the promise of more to come.
Reconnecting with Astin will be "a nice Easter egg for fans," Feldman says. "For those who know the history of The Goonies and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, they'll be excited. And for newer fans, the kids, will be excited there's a new turtle."
TMNT also stars (as Raphael), Rob Paulsen (Donatello), Greg Cipes (Michelangelo), Jason Biggs (Leonardo), Mae Whitman (April O'Neil), Hoon Lee (Master Splinter), Kevin Michael Richardson (Shredder) and Josh Peck (Casey Jones).
Here's a first look at "Slash and Destroy," the new episode that introduces Feldman as Slash.
