Episode 30- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

It’s the 30th episode of Rewatchability, and to celebrate we have a super-sized episode dedicated to one of our favourite topics: the seminal popular culture phenomenon that is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! We re-watched the first three movies, and also managed to discuss the cartoon series, the Nintendo games, the breakfast cereal, and the Ninja Turtles’ unfortunate 1990 Live Tour. We’re joined by guests Matt Johnson (who you might recognize from Nirvana the Band) and Curtis Lobb who’s currently working on a TMNT documentary. In this episode we address some important issues: Was Casey Jones homeless? Where were Corey Feldman and Elias Koteas during Secret of the Ooze? What will Michael Bay’s reboot of the franchise look like?* Which rap is better, Ninja Rap or TURTLE Power? You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out!

Episode 30- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

MUSIC: This week’s featured artist is Del Bel

WARNING: the podcast contains strong language and immature subject matter, please be advised.

Curtis can be found at FauxPopTV and iProductions

* UPDATE: Since recording this podcast, Michael Bay has announced that the Ninja Turtles in his new film won’t be Mutants but rather Aliens… yeah. I wonder what the guy who voiced Michaelangelo in the movies thought of that.

    Speaking of Rookie of the Year/trilogies, how about a ‘versus rewatch’ of the pre-MLB Strike of 1994 trilogy of kids baseball films, also including Sandlot and Little Big League? (Although, some might regard Little Big League as more a part of the trilogy of 1994 films about kids inheriting vast wealth, also including Blank Check and Richie Rich)

    • All fantastic ideas. Blank Check, specifically, is one of my favourites.

      Thanks for the suggestions!

        You know, I forgot about Angels in the Outfield so, if all things must come in trilogies, Little Big League may have to be forfeited to the with-great-wealth-comes-great-responsibility trilogy.

  2. Hey guys,
    Just listened and (loved it!) but…sounds like that Matt guy is full of beans bud.
