MWIRE – Episode 31 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

ToyCast – Episode 87 – Cowabunga Turtle Toy Time

Let’s here from Steve and Mike why they are wanting to do a TMNT week at this time.

Steve’s Thoughts:

For me this harkens back to my Batman days. What I mean is prior to loving the Bat, I loved the TMNT. These awesome team of turtles, Krang and the Shredder have always been favorites of mine. I remember owning EVERY TMNT toy until receiving my final one the Technodrome. That being said I owned a small portion of the VHS tapes as well and loved catching it on TV and Finally the films. For me this has been another of those magical TV icons that has like Batman or Transformers surpassed all odds and stayed in the light for future generations. I just honestly am excited to be talking about the Lean Green Turtle Machines!

Mike’s Thoughts:

For me the fearless foursome represent a part of my childhood after Transformers, He-Man, Thundercats, and all that were no longer on the air. The TMNT Craze enveloped the country, and everyone wanted to have Turtle Power! I remember having the Burger King VHS tapes of the animated series, and when the movies hit… OMG! I have to go back and watch the entire 1987 cartoon, I honestly don’t remember much past Season 2. I did have a majority of the toys and loved them so much. Turtles will be forever a part of my geekdom!

There ya have it folks, exactly why we are doing a TMNT Theme week. So stay tuned, and see what we will come up with!
