Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #62

Hey everyone!

Welcome to episode 10 of Cowabunga Corner Season 3. In this episode I talk about the Playmates Statues. Which is my favorite set of TMNT Statues so far. I do want to apologize I am sick in this video, barely having a voice and really tired.

The set of Statues in front of me for this video is my mom’s set. My set was put back in their boxes a year ago and put in my closet, as we needed to move her set up to my room for a bit. So this set has been in my room on the entertainment stand.

Welcome to episode 9 of Cowabunga Corner Season 3. In this episode I get to sit down and interview Townsend Coleman who is best known as Michaelangelo from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon.

Townsend also did other characters on TMNT like Groundchuck, Rat King, Rahzar, Screwloose, Usagi Yojimbo and Muckman. Townsend worked on many other shows like The Tick, SWAT Kats, TalesSpin, Teen Wolf and his first cartoon gig ever was Inspector Gadget.

In this interview we get to go over how Townsend got into voice acting, about his years of working on Ninja Turtles and a bit of the series he did after working on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Welcome to episode 8 of Cowabunga Corner Season 3. In this episode I share some video that was taken in 1993 of my trip to Orlando, FL.

Originally planned to just show the MGM Turtles, though when I realized how short this blog would of been I decided to share some more of the trip. Covering both Universal Studios and Disney World.

This video is one of the first Cowabunga Corner episodes to share some of my other interest as I let audio from the past tell about parts of the trip, over lapping the matching video. There will most likely be another episode down the road about this trip, sharing some of the Turtle stuff that did not make it into the video.

Review: New York City Comic Con 2011

New York City Comic Con is a convention worthy of having returning fans and booths.  With a great lay out, fun panels, and a nice size crowd, guests for all sorts of people, games for young and older fans and tons of comic booths and artist for everyone to enjoy, this is not an event that disappoints the attendees.  Every year they try to make it bigger and better, with goals to become as big as San Diego Comic Con. Though, personally, I’d be happy if it stays at the size the convention is at right now.

Welcome to episode 6 of Cowabunga Corner Season 3. In this episode I get to sit down and interview Michelan Sisti who is best known as Michaelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1 & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 : The Secret of the Ooze.

He also played the pizza delievery guy in the first movie and April’s neighbor in the second movie. So both movies we know him in and out of costume.

Welcome to episode 5 of Cowabunga Corner Season 3. In this episode I talk about some of the other TMNT blogs out there.

I know I could never cover every blog, so I decided to talk about a handful which are very cool to read from time to time for either information on the past or up coming news about the Turtles.

Blogs that I discuss are “The Fifth Turtle” wish that one was still around, “Peter Laird’s Blog”, “What’s on my Brain”, “Go Green Machine” and “Ninja Pizza”. Each of which are spots that TMNT fans should know about. Their information is helpful and informative for people looking up TMNT stuff.

Review Detroit FanFare 2011

Detroit FanFare, the new show in town, is trying to become as big as Motor City Comic Con fast.  This show did great last year with Stan Lee as their guest of honor so they figured they’d pull in the same type of crowd this year without Stan Lee and jumped into Cobo Hall in Downtown Detroit.  The plan was flawed as the guest list did not include Stan Lee and the event was not free to the public like it was last year.  Though the event was a blast for EVERY attendee that came to the convention.

Review: IDW TMNT #2

Issue #2 of the new IDW Comics has just been released. Last time we were left off was with Casey Jones being attacked by his drunk father.  Raphael jumps in to stop this attack, so that is where they pick up right away with the comic.  We get to see a fight between Casey’s father and Raphael.  The father does put up a good fight before getting thrown out of his own house and driving away.  Raphael and Casey now start to talk and make friends, once Casey asks where Raph is from it goes into another flashback of the lab where April O’Neil is working.

Review: Casey Jones Fan Movie

This week a new fan movie premiered on the internet called “Casey Jones” by Polaris Banks and is based off of Casey Jones from Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  This has been a project in the works for a few years as the trailer had been online for awhile.  I got the chance to watch it the night the movie was up for public viewing and found myself glued to it until the very end.

Review IDW TMNT #1

August 2011 marked the beginning of a new TMNT comic book series.  A lot of hype has surrounded this comic release with Kevin Eastman back on the creative team of the Turtles, this is something we could all look forward to.  I know I have been excited ever since I heard Kevin’s name was attached to the comic.  It took me a few weeks to get the book, as the first store I checked was sold out and I didn’t know the area well enough to know of another store to go for the new comics.  After I finally went to one, I read it on the subway train ride to my next location.
