Goonies take over Turtles!

As reported by, Goonie Corey Feldman ("Mouth") is joining Sean Astin ("Mikey") on the Nickelodeon animated series "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," which airs Saturdays at 11am ET. Corey is already familiar with the reptilian franchise—he voiced Donatello in two TMNT movies in the early 90s. In fact, he had also auditioned for the new show to be Raphael, the role that Sean won. (And just to bring things full circle, Donatello is now voiced by Rob Paulsen, who was Raphael in the first TMNT show!)

"If it was anyone else I would have taken it harder, but I love Sean," said Corey, who lost the role because his voice was too "raspy." Still, executive producer Ciro Nieli promised to find a way to get Corey on the show. Exactly how he did that is still a secret.

"His role is a perfect complement to his relationship with Sean," said Ciro. "It couldn't be any better." The plan is to bring Corey back for several episodes.

 "The coolest part is it's two Goonies working together again after all these years," Corey said. "Which is crazy, because we're all such good friends."

Of course, the question arises of whether or not there will be a Goonies 2.

"It will happen," Sean said. "I'm 1000 percent certain there will be a sequel. I will bet my children on it."

Corey is more cautious. "Oh my God," he says. "I am betting no child on this matter."
