TMNT25

Kodak Moment #65

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 Michelangelo and I in 2009.

Cowabunga Corner #23

In this episode of “Cowabunga Corner” I’m talking about the Viacom buy out of Ninja Turtles.

On October 21st, 2009, Peter Laird finished a sale of all TMNT, besides for the Mirage comic version to Viacom. Selling them for $60 Million. The sale was a surprise to everyone, as we all knew Ninja Turtles were having a big year with their cross country tour, comics, and the “Turtles Forever Movie” as well as the release of “Turtles Smash Up” video game. The last thing on any of our minds was them being sold.

Cowabunga Corner #2

In this episode I cover the tour that took place in 2009 for 25 years of TMNT.

They had a Thomas Bus made into the Turtle Van on the outside. On the Inside, we had a Ninja Turtles Museum with toys, videos, photos, and even storyboard art work. This Tour went across the United States, stopping in cities for meet and greet with fans. This was free to the public, so people could go through and see the history of the Turtles.

The main crew on this trip was Mike and Aaron, as they would drive this bus from city to city. These two people were the only ones who appeared at every stop of the tour.
