Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pinball 2020

Where have I been?  That’s a story for another day.  What’s new with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is much more exciting and fun.  In June 1991 a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pinball Machine hit the market.  Found at Arcades, bars, movie theaters and more around the world.  This game was made by Data East USA, Inc.  As a kid I did not see this game in person till I got to play it at the Words & Pictures Museum in Northampton, MA.  I totally loved the game and almost bought one for myself at $1,000 in the early 2000’s.  I really wanted to own one, but things fell through and it remains one of the things that is not in

Memories of David Wise

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have so many different things that get people to think about them.  Some of the most powerful things to bring the Turtles to minds are pizza and the word Cowabunga!  These were first introduced to Ninja Turtles in the 1987 cartoon series.  Right away in the very first episode we learn of the Turtles’ love for pizza and Michaelangelo breaks out into the call “Cowabunga!” as he surfs through a flooding building.  These were things written into the Turtles by David Wise.  A writer who helped turn the Turtles from an adult comic book where the Turtles were trained to kill the S

Review: Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Turtle Fans we have something to be excited about!  Adult TMNT fans, those of us who’ve been there for years seem to get the back burner for needs in a good show or movie.  The main area that usually gives us good stories and characters that think about us fans, is the Comics.  IDW has been amazing and keeps throwing things out there for us fans to embrace.  While the movies and shows keep giving us strong changes that leaves the areas of the Turtles that we know.  While new is good, it’s also nice to remember that the Turtles are still here because they work.  You don’t need to fix something that is not broken, and Batman vs.

The Adventure of going to Toy Fair 2019

Cowabunga Corner is a place where we can have fun and share the things we love.  One of the many things we love is toys!  Often we try to share stories about Toys, be it Blind Bag openings, interviews with amazing Toy people and reviews of the neat things coming to the market.  Be it Ninja Turtles or not, toys bring happiness to people and we love that feeling!  And there’s no better event to cover on the subject than Toy Fair.  Though the last few years my health has been too poor to make the trip, which was almost the case for this year.  But things changed making it so Miki and I could make the trip.  Here is the tale of how we almost did not make it to Toy Fai

Kodak Moment #109

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is from my cross country trip in 2009.
