Nickelodeon's 'TMNT': Who's that masked man? Why, it's Casey Jones!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returns to Nickelodeon with all-new episodes on Feb. 2, as well as a nice surprise for old-school TMNT fans: Recurring Turtle ally Casey Jones is going full masked vigilante.
In the original 1987 animated series, Jones was a violent, Rorschach-esque crime fighter who treated murderers and litterbugs with equal equal disdain and never removed his iconic hockey mask. Nickelodeon’s slightly kinder, gentler Casey is a pal of April O’Neil’s who speaks with Josh Peck’s voice and generally prefers to show his face — at least, until he decides it’s time to take a stand against “pure evil” in Sunday’s episode, titled “The Good, The Bad, and Casey Jones.”
Watch Casey in action in the clip below, which also features his reluctant partner Raphael (Sean Astin) — and some seriously impressive subway rail-skating. Cowabunga!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returns Sunday, Feb. 2 at 11 a.m. on Nickelodeon.
