Kodak Moment #38

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 my visit to the set of the Next Mutation.

In July 1997 my family and a friend got to visit the set of Ninja Turtles : The Next Mutation.  This photo was taken during this visit as one of the actresses from the show signed my mother’s shirt.  Because of a promise I made back on the set, I can not reveal the name of this actress.  But I will say she became one of my best friends there, she was so nice to us.  I really enjoyed meeting her.

My mom had her shirt signed by just about everyone who would sign it.  I had a TMNT Foot ball signed by the cast, and the puppeteers and stunt doubles signed a TMNT Lunch Box.  I wish I had them all sign the lunch box, as the autographs on the football is about all worn off now, as it is made of rubber.   I also helped two fellow TMNT fans out, by having the cast sign pieces of paper for those friends.

This was the second day of filming the episode “The Guest”, we were at the docs and got to watch the huge fight scene between the Turtles, Dr. Quease and the Rank.  It was a great night, as I got to spend a lot of time talking with the cast when they were not filming.  I really do feel this series is better than people say about it, and I know that it could’ve been even better with the right editors.  I love the Next Mutation and support it to this day.
