Hey everyone, welcome to episode 24 of Cowabunga Corner Season 2!
In this episode I share video footage from the Saturday night party held for Turtle Con 2000, a booth from Motor City Comic Con. The Turtle Con booth was held in order to help save the Turtles, as we had nothing new at all out at the time. So people traveled from across the United States to meet up at this booth to show support for bringing the Turtles back.
The party itself was held in my hotel room at the Townplace Suites in Novi, Michigan. We had one of the two bedroom suites and other people were opening their rooms up as well for people to hang out at. This is one of the very few times I did a party since we went out of business in 1993. And it was clear we were not fully ready as our tape player didn't want to work, the prizes were forgotten at the convention center, and a few other minor problems. Still things went off as a lot of fun for those who did show up.
For video of the convention itself please check out "Cowabunga Corner" #25 which covered the convention portion of this weekend. We still have more to share about this, for future blogs.
This party was the first time I met a lot of Turtle fans in person. And is one of the biggest fan gatherings I've seen since the internet that was not hosted by an official company of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. To name a few of the fans that were at this event... we had Tokka, Lisardo, Brinatello, HorseTurtle, Raka, Misty, Mica, Mandy, Brent, HappyLittleMoron, Savanti, TurtleNinja, Fugitoid, and so many others! As well as two TMNT Guests Frank Fosco (artist from TMNT Image Comics) and Mitchell A. Lee Yuen (Raphael's actor from Ninja Turtles the Next Mutation).
Hope that everyone enjoys this video. Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts.
