Before you hit theaters to see the remake of this 1990 movie, why not check out the original live action first? (Especially if you have little ones who aren’t yet ready for the PG-13 version hitting theaters).
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie is the live-action, feature film adaptation of the cult comic book and the popular animated television show. After prolonged exposure to radiation, four teenage turtles–Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, and Donatello–have mutated into ninjas and have begun living in the sewers of a large city. Under the guidance of a ninja master Splinter the Rat and television reporter April, the Turtles embark on a mission to run crime out of the city and battle the warlord Shredder.
If your kids just can’t get enough of the Ninja Turtles, why not revisit the original animated series? Running from 1987-1996, there are nearly ten years of episodes of these crime fighting turtles to keep your kids in all of their teenage terrapin glory. Rated G.
