During the late 1980s aTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtle mania swept the imagination of American children. The US flag is shown in the opening shot when a NYC reporter - April O'Neil - talks about a recent and mysterious crime wave. These icons of the transitional 80-90s pop era were elegantly put on the big screen with the magical help of Jim Henson and are the most life like puppets to enter imagination land in the 1990s.
