Hot on the heels of the commercially successful reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Paramount is releasing Turtle Power: The Definitive History of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on DVD, VOD and Digital HD. The documentary, written and directed by Randall Lobb, covers the complete thirty-year history of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael from their comic book origins to their TV show and actions figures to the new Michael Bay-produced movie.
We've got an exclusive clip from the documentary that examines how the characters' popularity blew up after the cartoon debuted on television.
And here's a trailer for the movie:
Originally produced as a self-released one-shot black-and-white comic book by creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles became a cultural phenomenon that rivaled Star Wars at its peak. For anyone who didn't live through the mania as an elementary school boy in 1985, Turtle Power explains just what was going on back then.
