Review: The Secret History of the Foot Clan #1

TMNT_Foot01_cvrAIn Ninja Turtle history one of the things that keeps changing is the history of the Foot Clan.  A handful of medias have covered this, most changing it in their own ways.  The IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Series has made it very clear that their version of each of the characters that we know and love are different from how we’ve ever known them.  Including the Foot Clan.  We know so little about this new Foot Clan, but we do know that the Shredder is brought back to life.  Karai has been leading the Foot till Shredder is back.  Shredder killed Yoshi and his family back in his previous life.

Cowabunga Corner #103: 4Kids TMNT Season 1

Hey everyone,

Review: IDW TMNT #17

When the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon was cancelled, a lot of great characters disappeared from the different worlds of TMNT.  Mirage, Image, The Next Mutation, 4Kids, and even the movie has not picked up these characters.  As they laid in the past, seeming to be forgotten.  Though when Viacom bought up the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle property back in 2009, none of us realized just how many of these lost characters would make their returns in one universe or another.

Review: IDW TMNT #16

With all the hype of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series on Nickelodeon, let’s not forget the first story arc since Viacom has bought the Turtles.  IDW Publishing has it’s awesome comic line, with a full new story for the Turtles.  Different from any version out there, these Turtles are winning the hearts of their readers.  As Tom Waltz is bringing us on a ride full of action, family moments, bad guys and humor.  In the last issue Michelangelo stood alone against their new foe, as his brothers fell.  So here’s my review of issue 16, where we see how the Turtles face off against this new threat.

Review: Nickelodeon "Monkey Brain"

In the past the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been seeing monkeying around, with different monkey type villains, from the over sized chimp in the original cartoon series to a talking ape and a Gorilla in Ninja Turtles the Next Mutation.  Nickelodeon is no exception to this rule, as we go into the newest episode "Monkey Brains" where Donatello and April discover a Mutant Monkey that knows how to kick some shell.  Here's my thoughts of this episode and the progress that the series is making with it's 7th episode.

Halloween TMNT Treat

Halloween the time for costumes, though for some TMNT fans costumes are something we enjoy through out the year at events and conventions.  Over the years I've seen way more people in Turtle costumes and here I'll like to share a TMNT treat for all of our readers.  Some of the awesome Ninja Turtle characters I've seen at events in the last 10 years.

Review: Turtle Temper Nickelodeon TMNT ep 3

The new Nickelodeon series has been a hot subject as of lately.  I’ve been going around hearing lots of people talk about the series and how they saw the first hour episode last week.  How the Turtles found out about pizza, the changes in their looks, and just the overall feel of the new series.  So far, the feedback has been positive for Nickelodeon as people are willing to keep going forward to see where the show is headed.  This week we deal with Raphael’s temper, an issue brought up in a handful of different Turtle medias, including in issue 14 of the IDW comics which just came out last month.  Is Raph’s temper so bad the other Turtles don’t want him around?

Changes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Close your eyes, take in a deep breath.. with that breath take in everything you know about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Now release the breath letting that information go just for a little bit.  Remember that information will always be there, the old shows and comics are not erased.  They will remain in the public eyes for years to come.  Though now we get to see a new, and the best way to view something new is with fresh eyes and without comparison.  Nothing can and will replace your favorite media of Ninja Turtles, and the new is not looking to replace it.  The new is only opening doors for new fans, and giving us old fans something else to look into.

1991 Coming Out of Their Shells Tour Chicago

It was 1991, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were going strong around the world, from the movies, toys, cartoons, and the live concert was still going around the country.  This was a smaller show that was edited down from the original “Coming Out of Their Shells Tour”.  They came to Michigan to do a show.  I was staying at my aunt’s during that time and was not able to convince anyone to take me to the show, since I saw the full show back in October.  I was crushed. I wanted to see it alive again so badly.  Disappointed that I missed the show, the only thing I got was a poster that was badly beaten left hanging in a store on their pinboard.
