Teenage Mutant Stop Motion Turtles!
Kyle Roberts really loves the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He loves them so much, in fact, that he lovingly recreated the opening using nothing but action figures and hand-drawn animation. Seriously.
How much work went into this two minutes of animation? Overall, it consists of 4,000 individually shot frames, with 60 hand drawn images. The song itself was also custom commissioned from Oklahoma band The Boom Bang. You can get a sense of the sheer love involved from the making-of:
All of this was commissioned by the Toy and Action Figure Museum out of Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. Why? Because people love the Turtles. And also because it’s awesome. It being awesome definitely helps.
