In the spring of 1984, a strange new comic book sat beside cash registers in select shops, too big to fit in the racks, and too weird to ignore. Eastman and Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles presented a completely original breed of super hero. It was too bizarre, too crazy. It broke all the rules and should never have worked. Until it sold out. Again and again and again. For 30 years. Now, peek under the shell and see how this so-called "happy accident" defied every naysayer to become one of the most popular and beloved franchises in the world. Written by

By "definitive" they mean through 1990 or so, but that's okay, as that really covers that first initial wave of Turtlemania that swept the globe. With a runtime of just over 90 minutes, this is never the less a very thorough documentary about how an independently made black and white comic with a strange title and an even stranger premise came to dominate popular culture in the late 80s and early 90s. It features nearly all the people who were there and played a vital role, from creators Eastman and Laird to the makers and voice talent from the cartoon to the director and stars of the first live action movie to the people at Playmates toys who helped the Turtles become one of the biggest toy lines of all time. This is a well and lovingly made documentary and a must-see for any Turtles fan.
