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 Robbie Rist with Sporkette.
Robbie Rist is Michaelangelo’s voice actor from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1990, 1991 and 1993 movies. He’s also does voices for the original Ninja Turtles Cartoon later season and now is Mondo Gecko for Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. An all around great guy to be around. This photo is from 2009, when I traveled cross Country to volunteer at the TMNT 25th Anniversary Tour stops.
I had Sporketee with me, in hopes to return her to her creator. Sporkette is one of the old TMNT fan mascots that use to travel around from fan to fan. She was handed to me, with the goal of meeting up with Klork, the creator of Spork and Sporkette to return Sporkette to her home. Until it was decided if the mascots were going to travel again or not. I know that Sporkette’s stuff is with Klork. On this trip, I made sure that Sporkette was getting out and getting some cool photos.
Miki and I met up with Robbie, and I asked him to take this photo. It’s always fun to get the TMNT fan mascots in photos with guests who’ve worked on Ninja Turtles. Spork, Sporkette and Jaffa Cakes are all awesome little mascots that have connect so many fans with fun memories. I hope that some day, the fandom is as close as it once was, so that we can bring these mascots back on the road.
