Trivia

Often erroneously thought to be subtitled: "Turtles in Time." In actuality, it has no subtitle. This confusion is likely due to the fact that in the early 90s, not long before this movie was a popular video game released in arcades and later on home consoles titled "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time." Some of this film's later DVD cases actually have the incorrect title on its cover. "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Turtles in Time." See more »

Goofs

Walker never grabs the scepter after he rescues his bird, a sack just appears over his shoulder holding it. See more »

Quotes

Walker: Excuse me, Niles. Shouldn't you be trying to scare somebody?

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.
