Coming out of their shells

Midwest Media Expo 2014: TMNT Panel

 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has now been around for 30 years.  With the celebration going on throughout the year I’ve been invited as a guest to different conventions and events.  One of these events was the Midwest Media Expo held in Detroit, Michigan. They asked me to do a TMNT panel based on the 30 years of Ninja Turtles, giving me an hour and a half to talk Turtles, with an awesome co-host to help bring this panel to life, Andre Meadows from Black Nerd Comedy!  This is that panel.

Cowabunga Corner #79 "Eastman Interview"

Hey everyone,

Tales of TMNT Guests #1

Throughout my years as a Ninja Turtle fan, one thing has always been so amazing that it’s kept me in this fandom and making memories that I’ll never forget and making new friends, whom I hope will be friends for a very long time.  These are some of my stories of meeting the people behind the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

2005 Interview Eric Anzalone

In 2005, Eric Anzalone from the Village People took time to be interviewed for his work he did with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Here on Cowabunga Corner we’d like to share this interview for the first time, as a lead in to our 12th episode for season two, a video interview with Eric.

Cowabunga Corner:
How did you first hear of the Ninja Turtles?

Eric:
That would have to be the 1st Movie?

CC:
Did you watch the cartoons or movies?

Eric:
I watched the movies. By the time the second film came out, I was already involved with the TMNT, so I would try to catch the cartoons as well- you know character work; trying to make everything consistent.

CC:
Before being a Turtle did you have a favorite Turtle, if so did it change after being in the Tour?

Cowabunga Corner #9

In this episode I talk about the Coming Out of Their Shells Tour, that went around in 1990 through 1991. A fun show, made for children. Picked on by many fans, though it was never intended for the older fans. Seeing it live is far better than watching it on TV.

If you have stories to share about the Coming Out of Their Shells Tour, please do share!
