This Thanksgiving, a group of turtles that are highly skilled in the martial arts will be making their way down 34th St. in New York City. Nickelodeon announced today that the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES will take to the streets with a new float in the 86th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “Designed by the artists of Macy’s Parade Studio, the new float, unfolding with breathtaking ninja precision, will feature a spectacular dark cityscape including roof tops, fire escapes, window ledges and a zip line down telephone wires.” Check out the concept artwork below, right here on The Rock Father

“Millions of families around the country will come together for the annual tradition of watching Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and we couldn’t be more thrilled to once again partner with Macy’s to bring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to life. Our new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has really struck a chord with fans and this spectacular float will offer them an exciting Nickelodeon entertainment experience.” Pam Kaufman, chief marketing officer, Nickelodeon Group.

The latest incarnation of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES made it’s debut on September 29th, and can be seen Saturday mornings at 11am on Nickelodeon. The 86th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade airs nationwide on NBC-TV, on Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012 from 9 a.m. – noon in all time zones. 

Personally, I haven’t caught the new TMNT series yet (I will), but the toy line from Playmates Toys looks fantastic. I keep seeing it everywhere. Are the Turtles a fixture in YOUR house?
