Trivia

The animatronic heads of Michaelangelo and Leonardo from this movie are now in the hands of an obsessed Turtles fan named Michele Ivey. She bought them for $3800 US. See more »

Goofs

Raphael goes to see Yoshi and gives him a yo-yo. Raphael promises Yoshi that tomorrow afternoon he'll teach him some tricks on his yo-yo. But by tomorrow afternoon Raphael, his brothers & April should be long gone back home as they only have 2 1/2 days through the space time continuum to do what they need to do before going back home to the present. So Raphael made a promise that he wasn't going to be able to keep to Yoshi. See more »

Quotes

Walker: So they've gone missing. I mean, war does have a habit of doing that to people.

Alternate Versions

The depiction of chainsticks on screen was rarely allowed in the UK, so the movie was heavily cut or reframed to remove every last trace of them. In total 7 secs were removed from the reframed print with most of the edits made to the opening scene where Michaelangelo practices with the nunchakus and hits a punching ball (this was replaced with images of the turtles dancing). The cuts were fully waived in 2002 for the DVD. See more »

I'm only a fan of this movie for the nostalgia. As a kid, I was obsessed with 1993 ninja turtle Saturday morning cartoon. I distinctly remember getting this movie as a reward for getting good grades in every subject on my report card that term. I must've watched this movie at least a dozen times that summer.

sorry for the tangent. corey feldman does the voice of a lifesize puppet. how can that possibly be a good sign? the heroes of the movie are irritating in every scene. the consistently bad puns will make you want to slam your head against a wall. the portrayal of the fictional early 90's new york that exists in this movie is about as funny as rick moranis's career. avoid avoid avoid.
