If you were a young kid in the late 80’s, you probably haven’t just heard of “the Turtles,” you lived and breathed them. Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. These guys were everywhere. Mass marketing found a new meaning. Toys, television series, lunch boxes, cereal, you name it. The Turtles really showed how effective a franchise could be, aimed at children. With individualized colors and weapons, and a heroic ninja fighting style, boys everywhere wanted to grow up to be these teenage mutations.
When the movie came and you saw the poster for the first time, nothing could quite explain the reaction. Four Turtles peeking out of a manhole. They were REAL!! And so was the Shredder! Thankfully, these guys are on our side, because Shredder is one bad looking (and sounding) villain!
The guys revisit this childhood classic and talk about the things they remember about it in youth. More importantly, how it holds up today. Check it out below:
