Comic-book star and original co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Kevin Eastman will make his voice-acting debut on the TMNT animated series March 2 on Nick.

The episode, titled “Of Rats and Men,” airs at 11 a.m. ET/PT and introduces the character of Ice Cream Kitty, voiced by Eastman.

Eastman and Peter Laird created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a self-published comic book title released in 1984 that parodied the teenage mutants of the popular X-Men comics and the ninja elements popularized in American comics by Frank Miller in such titles as Daredevil and Ronin.

The comic became an unexpected hit, spawning decades of animated series, toys, movies, games and countless collectibles.

For fans of the old-school animated Turtles, Nick offers a sneak peek starting March 2 on Nick.com or the Nick App of “The Manhattan Project,” the upcoming one-hour episode premiering March 14 at 7 p.m. ET/PT and featuring the original 1980s voice cast: Cam Clarke, Townsend Coleman, Barry Gordon and Rob Paulsen.
