Did You Know?


In the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) film, the turtles facial expressions were cable operated with all the motors, servos etc housed in the shell. In this movie, thanks to a larger budget, the animatronics were much smaller and lighter and were built into the face itself. See more »


At about the 52:47 mark after Donatello is thrown through the roof and rips the tape off of the TGRI guys mouth he exclaims "I gotta get the hang of that" to which the TGRI guy says "That's okay." immediately after "That's okay" you can hear someone on the set say "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 107" in the background. Use headphones if you must. See more »

19 June 1999 | by (Cleveland,Ohio) – See all my reviews

When I saw the first debut of the turtle's movie I did not want to miss a second. And I did'nt. When the 2nd one came out I loved every second as the 1st, and to this day I still have the collection, and the credit I want to give to is the puppeteers and the suit performers they were awesome bringing those characters to life. Great Job. My full respect for these movies is still strong. Some say I'm too old to watch it still. I don't think so! TMNT Rocks. Let's keep it that Way!
