Help get TMNT into the National Toy Hall of Fame!

In 1983 Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, they released these characters to the public in 1984 as a Comic Book.  The Turtles were a huge success through comic book fans, though for those not into the comic scene it was not heard of.  Things could’ve remained this way if Mark Freedman did not get into the picture and go to Playmates Toys for the action figure line.  Playmates Toys loved this story so much that they funded the first five episodes of the original cartoon series.  Making the Toys one of the major backbones behind the Turtles which helped many of us fans learn their story.  I for one am Thankful as they helped and changed t

Rock the Half Shell

 

“Crime waves high with muggings mysterious, all police and detectives are furious.”  When I hear that line in a song I get very excited as it’s one of my favorite songs from my childhood.  “T U R T L E Power” from the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie.  This remains one of my favorite TMNT songs of all time, equal to only to the original TMNT cartoon series theme song.  This song is by Partners in Kryme, so my excitement when I found out that they were doing a new song in 2014 for Ninja Turtles had me excited.  First time I heard it was at the Epic Party, at that time we could not share the song.  Though now it is up and ready to be shared, the video here is “Rock the Half Shell”.

2015 Events - Toonseum TMNT Exhibit

It’s been awhile since I have written here, and I’m sorry about that.  My family has desperately needed me, and I’ve often said “family first” on all things.  So Cowabunga Corner has been one of the areas I had to step back from for a little bit to help my family get things in order.   While we’re still working on things, I’d like to do an update on things to come from Cowabunga Corner.  Hopefully soon! 

TMNT Live 1990 Auckland Aotea Centre New Zealand

 

So much Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stuff come out around the World.  These days it’s easier to hear about and see what is out there for Ninja Turtles.  Though back when the first big bang of TMNT fandom happened, it was not hard to miss out because of not seeing a News Paper artical or the event not even being in your country.  A lot of people seem to think I’ve seen and know of all things TMNT, when in truth I don’t think anyone has or could.  Which is why I love to share things new and old of Ninja Turtles here on Cowabunga Corner.  Today I’m sharing something old, but new to me.
