Nickelodeon To Hold "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", "SpongeBob SquarePants", "The Legend of Korra", "T.U.F.F. Puppy", And "The Fairly OddParents" Panels At San Diego Comic-Con International 2012

From Television Blend:
Nickelodeon Comic Con Panels Include Spongebob And Ninja Turtles

Just a little while ago, we shared the new trailer for Nickelodeon's Ninja Turtles reboot series. Those who love the Turtles and are going to be at Comic Con this year may want to check out the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel scheduled to take place.

Nickelodeon hasn't released specifics as to when and where these panels will take place, but four of their series will be making appearances at SDCC this year, including SpongeBob SquarePants and The Legend of Korra. I attended the Spongebob panel at SDCC a couple of years ago and learned some interesting things about the series, including the animation process. It was also fun to see Tom Kenny show us how he does Spongebob's laugh.

Here's the list of panels Nick has set for attendance at SDCC this year, along with the talent that will be on hand to represent them.

* The Legend of Korra's Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko (co-creators/executive producers), Joaquim Dos Santos (co-executive producer), Janet Varney (Korra), David Faustino (Mako), P.J. Byrne (Bolin), Seychelle Gabriel (Asami) and Andrea Romano (voice director).

* Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Jason Biggs (Leonardo), Sean Astin (Raphael), Greg Cipes (Michelangelo), Rob Paulsen (Donatello), Ciro Nieli (executive producer) and additional cast TBA.

* T.U.F.F. Puppy / The Fairly OddParents’s Butch Hartman (creator/executive producer), Jerry Trainor (Dudley), Grey DeLisle (Kitty & Vicky), Daran Norris (Chief, Chameleon, Cosmo, Dad & Jorgen), Tara Strong (Timmy & Baby Poof), Susanne Blakeslee (Wanda & Mom), Matthew Taylor (Snaptrap & Quacky) and Carlos Alazraqui (Crocker & Mrs. Crocker).

* SpongeBob SquarePants' Tom Kenny (SpongeBob), Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick), Mr. Lawrence (Plankton, writer), Vince Waller (Creative Director) and Seamus Walsh and Mark Caballero (Directors, Screen Novelties).
We have the What and the Who, but not only do we not know when or where these panels will take place just yet, but Nick seems to be keeping the mystery alive with regards to what's planned for them, as no descriptions for the panels are mentioned. I'd be especially interested to know if they will be showing any footage from the new Ninja Turtles series, or perhaps a new trailer. We'll have to wait and see what details emerge leading up to the big convention, which is set to take place in San Diego next month.
