CCN: Rob Paulsen Interview May 2018

 

Through Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles history there is a group of amazing people who can say they’ve been along for the ride of a lifetime through different areas of Ninja Turtle history.  Rob Paulsen is one of those amazing people that can share stories from working on the original TMNT series from 1987 to 1995, as Raphael.  He came back in the 2012 Nickelodeon series all the way through 2017 as the voice of Donatello.  And now he’s staying with the Ninja Turtles for their newest series coming out this fall, “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”.  I caught up with Rob Paulsen at Motor City Comic Con where he agreed to give us this short interview.

Rise of the TMNT : Michelangelo's Design

The internet exploded shortly after the designs for the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series was released in February.  As fans of all ages found themselves split down the middle upon the new look and feel for the Ninja Turtles, as there’s no question that this is a road they’ve never been on before.  I tried to write one story that would include my thoughts on the Facebook Live, designs, show overall and even the toys.  But it got long and hard to write, let alone read.  Which brings me here, where I’m going to give a short write up about each of the things revealed about “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”.  Let’s talk about Michelangelo and his new design.

Everything Has Its Time and Place

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a Turtles’ fan and for almost every stage in my life, there has been a series running for me to enjoy. Like most people born in the 80s, I was raised on the 1987 cartoon. As a preteen, I rushed home after school to watch The Next Mutation’s attempt at a live-action show (still a guilty pleasure for sure). I was overjoyed when our thirst was quenched by the underrated 2003 Fox cartoon. For five years, I religiously watched every episode of the 2012 Nickelodeon series. And while I have my reservations about some of the designs for the new 2018 Nick series, I’m very hopeful to see new life breathed into the franchise.

Kodak Moments #67

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is from the set of the Ghoul Show.
