Stop Motion Remake Of TMNT Cartoon Opening

Did you read the title? Because that's what this is. They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but man, I think I really f***in' nailed it with that title.

With over 4,000 individual pictures, Kyle Roberts and crew wanted to recreate the nostalgic 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon introduction in stop motion. Artist, Nathan Poppe, created over 60 hand-drawn images to establish a bright and vibrant backdrop to complement Roberts' use of action figures.


Sponsored by the Toy and Action Figure Museum, curator Kevin Stark designed many of the pieces in the original 1990 TMNT toy line.

Damn, I used to love me some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cartoons on a Saturday morning. Also: pounding bowl after bowl of sugary cereal until my mom would have to lock me in a closet to calm down. Fun fact: I tunneled out with my teeth. Just like Master Splinter would have!

Hit the jump for the worthwhile Friday time-waster.
