In the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, Rob Paulsen’s Raphael undoubtedly stole the show. Now, in today’s Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, we are honored with the presence and utterly amazing voice acting of Greg Cipes as Michelangelo. Ed Liu at Toonzone.com recently had the privilege of sitting down with Cipes to talk about his work as Mikey!
“TOONZONE NEWS: The new show definitely does have a lot of energy but there’s something really positive about it.
GREG CIPES: Yeah, it heals me. It heals me watching it. It’s wild, man…when I watched the first episode it was at a Turtle party before it came out on Nickelodeon, like a release party or a premiere party. It was the first time we saw the back-to-back episodes together. I never really saw them all the way through, and I literally cried a little bit. It wasn’t just because the show was so freakin’ awesome and touching and so positive, like you’re saying, but I had a flashback to me sitting in front of my TV at 8 years old, first time seeing the Turtles, and I really got to re-experience it. Because the show, like no other incarnation before this, really brought me back to the essence of what the show originally was. It really did affect me, and now it’s affecting me again. It changed my life. It is really positive, man. Splinter is a guru. He’s a Zen master. He’s so rad because the writers are so good…Brandon Auman and Peter Hastings and everyone else are really putting a lot of great content for adults in the writing so it’s entertaining for everyone. There’s a lot of enlightened material. And Ciro Nieli is an enlightened artist, so his work as an animator is just next level, man. It’s unmatchable. He is an innovator, and he changes the game. He did it again with the Turtles.”

“Nickelodeon’s new CG animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to debut this Saturday, September 29, and with it comes a new voice cast putting a fresh spin on the iconic creations of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. Voicing Michelangelo in the new series is veteran voice actor Greg Cipes, who is no stranger to comic book-turned-cartoon roles having voiced Beast Boy on Teen Titans, Atlas in Astro Boy and most recently Iron Fist on Ultimate Spider-Man. We got in touch with the actor to pick his brain about what it means to play “the wild one” on a team consisting of already intense ninja brothers, and what fans can expect of the party dude in the show’s first season.” - Caleb, Goellner, ComicsAlliance
