Cowabunga Corner 112: Review of TMNT 1

Welcome to episode 7 of Cowabunga Corner Season 5.  In this episode I give my review of the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie.  For me this is my favorite movie, as I love the plot, characters and the costumes.  The costumes were amazing in this film as Jim Henson is one of the best artist.  This is why I think they need to do more live action films with the Henson Company.

Cowabunga Corner #102: Interview Mark Ginther

Hey everyone,

Hopes for the new TMNT Movie

The next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Film...

"The Muppets" on DVD & Blu-Ray

All my life I’ve been a Muppet fan. Even as a child, it was the first TV program that my full family would gather to watch together.  Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy, Animal, and the rest of the crew are all wonderful and inspirational.  The original Muppet Movie is one of my favorite movies of all time.

The Challenge of seeing "Being Elmo"

Through out my life I have grew up with the inspiration of Jim Henson around me.  From his TV shows, toys, movies and the work that my own father was inspired to do from watching interviews with Jim Henson.  My house had monsters ranging from tiny puppets to big costumes, craved from foam rubber.

Since working on the TMNT movies Mark has moved on to now work with selling Toys. Find out about his work with Bruder and just how great those toys are.

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #58

Welcome to episode 6 of Cowabunga Corner Season 3. In this episode I get to sit down and interview Michelan Sisti who is best known as Michaelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1 & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 : The Secret of the Ooze.

He also played the pizza delievery guy in the first movie and April’s neighbor in the second movie. So both movies we know him in and out of costume.

Attending the Tonight Show Review

Ever want to go to a live taping of a talk show?  Well for me, I’ve thought about it a few times, though it’s not one of those things I’ve ever gone out of my way to do.  I would if it included Ninja Turtles, but I never had that chance as they were always out of state back in the day when the Turtles did appear on shows such as Oprah.

TMNT Interview: Sara Seidman Vance

Earlier this year Cowabunga Corner was able to get in touch with Sara Seidman Vance, a crew member from two of the live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films. Sara worked on TMNT 1 as the costume dresser for Donatello and did make up and stand in work for TMNT 2.

Sara was nice enough to agree to an interview about her time working on the Ninja Turtle movies and giving us a little update on what she's doing now.
