The guy at 2:50 with the hat, isn't he the guy who played the pizza boy in the first movie?
FloatingRam
holy shit kevin clash played splinter
joey giustiniani
keeno played 1 of the turtles as well in first 1

@Gromdalyothga, Even when I was kid, I was pretty savy about how movies were made, special effects, stuntmen and so on, yet when the turtles film came out, I wondered "how did they do that", you really beleived the turtles were real and never thought of them as "guys in suits", to learn years later they used animatronics was pretty impressive, they really don't need CGI, the methods used in the first 2 movies can still work today.

I thought the CGI in the newer TMNT movie was awesome myself
FreekyDeeky21
I have this on VHS somewhere in my house. I also have the movie premiere that came on before this that came on before the movie on Showtime.
Dmt mind
@shairaptor I am
Greeno Grenesis
@nils920 Ditto. CGI kind of ruins it, because you can always immediately tell that it's CGI... Has anyone ever seen Little Shop of Horrors? Man, that movie had some of the best animatronics I've ever SEEN! You guys need to look it up.
Nicholas Julian
"B..But, that takes hard work! We can just simply leave the CG for the nerds to do in post once we've already finished principle photography."
MickeRamone
Indeed! God I hope they wont use any CGI crap in the new movie!
Hotshotter3000
Kevin Klash, the voice of Elmo, is also Splinter. Maybe that`s why Elmo likes Wasabi so much (also the reason why he has no eyelids...)
Doobie1975
I wish they would have Bebop and Rocksteady in this movie instead of Tokka and Rahzar, I personally thought Tokka and Rahzar's characters were too cheesy and over the top for my liking
Doobie1975
I thought Raphael's character in this movie was a lot more laid back than the original.
madssb
been looking for this everywhere. amazing.
Ed Bern
did ya all know splinter's puppeteer and voice is elmo from sesame street
Ed Bern
@captainestivi he also did clifford from the muppets
NakedSnake
@TankMacnamara81 Actually that's the guy who played Mikey, the pizza guy. In the first movie you can see all the turtles without their suits, the actors inside them. For example, Raphaels actor is the guy in the taxi when Raphael runs away from Caysey.
PyramidHead138
@mach1man22 CGI sucks,its just lack of creativity
6102livesipmurt
I put my hand up inside Splinter to work him.
EnigmaBoi85
@Deathbringer99699 shell yeah!

I'm watching Teenage Mutant Ninjga Turtles right now in my room. Secret of the Ooze! I love TMNT :D

5:53 What tha hell?
GrayifiedX
Tracking!
Tony Daniels
Wow I had no idea what technology they used for the robotics. Imagine what we'll use now if we still used animatronics to produce movies
Roldie Nguyen
I really like how in the 2nd movie they showed that Donatello can be the smart one and can still be fun and goofy
captain estivi
really?! that awesome
Thief8Bit
In yours, as well as mine, and many others. Minimal CGI was always the way to go.
Thief8Bit
I wonder how many people know what a VCR IS nowadays, and how to use one. (among the youth)
Shane A
Why wasn't this included on the TMNT 25th Anniversary Blu-ray release!?! It's like the only documentary on the films, and yet, they didn't put it on the anniversary collection. Lame.
Thief8Bit
Imagine how many people would complain less about movies.
Zachary Scott
2:09 is that Brian Henson? I hear a lot of Kermit in that voice!
CarlosIsDown
@SeedingHatred V.C.R.? Virtual Controlled Reality!? ARE YOU FROM THE FUTURE!!!!???
DTysonator
Damn right, dude!
Expofever
in the uk never got the blu-ray edition
Kevin Sting
they Totally ruined everything!
Kevin Sting
No, I already new they were animatronic suits.I was just making a joke that I thought that they used actual "mutant turtles".
Kevin Sting
And another thing I like to think I'm one of the few kids who likes things before 2000's.
LizChanFish
I miss these kinds of animatronics...today's films rely so much on 3D animation, that they lose that human quality that puppeteering brings.
TheresPooOnMyShoe
Raph and his actor are like about to make out...
BXmuffslayer
the voice of donatello was the same voice actor that played the son in the dinosaurs tv show that use to come on ABC's TGIF line up. corey feldman played the voice in part 1 and 3
matthew livingston
Michaelangelo wants to change his name because of Michael Bay
brodyboynumber9
that dude talking about splinter...is it me or does he look like christopher nolan??
mew10521
so the actor, voice actor and puppteer is all working together? That must have been hard to do
AnotherGamer
mickey wears an orange headband not red

@TonyKanameKuran Ah, thanks for the info. But would we still have to write to New Line Cinema or Warner Bros for that special edition DVD or does it have to be Viacom or Nickelodeon now?
job489
@TonyKanameKuran Thank you.
job489
I still want to see a special edition DVD of TMNT with all the special features, I loved these movies as a kid. But do we have to write to Nickelodeon now about a special edition DVD? I read that Nickelodeon has the rights to future TMNT media, so we have to write to them now too or is it still Warner Bros?
A.O.D I am Asperlando's Production
wow i have never seen this. Its appreciated that you have this because i dnt even have the behind the scenes on my vhs
WorkSucksChannel
it's funny to see these characters behind the scenes
handleydan
The REAL question is, how to the embodied actors expect to see through the helmets?
onehappyboo
lol, i love 4:26 aww mikey is a sweet heart of a guy, we all love mikey! oh mikey, dont ever change. XD
kakoishii
true that, I absolutely hate when they try to meld CG with live action (CG characters I mean), it looks fake and takes you out of the movie. You never for a minute believe the CG character is real, but with these turtle movies you can actually believe these turtles are real. That can only be achieved with animatronics, CG could never compare.
kakoishii
@paulod27 perhaps but the ones that are done really well are few and far between. Not ever cg movie is an avatar, most of them end up being scooby doo and that's really upsetting.
DrewBusone
@mach1man22 I was JUST saying that! I was watching Turtles 2 with my friend tonight and when Super Shredder came on the screen, I said, "See!? So much better than some big CG cartoon. Get a big dude and animatronics!" Kevin Nash was Super Shredder. Nearly 7 feet and perfect! Film makers today need to look on this and films like Jurassic Park and realize that it just looks BETTER when you have a good combination of CG and animatronic characters in movies like this.
morph1199
1:08- 1:14 WHAT!? NNNNNOOOOOO!!!!!!

@ArcaneDragonX man they were selling one on ebay a while ago it was expensive as hell though , like around 1200.
Oscar m

mordmil10
the whole puppet thing confuses me... o.O
ALGpresents!
if they make another TMNT live action movie, i hope to god that they use animitronics instead of CGI, because i dont know if the true fans wont feel like they were real like in this movie
steelfuser
CGI can achieve hyper-realism easily. I've personally seen movies that fooled me on which is real and which isn't(I'm not looking for it, the revelation comes when I watch the BTS). The problem for my eye is when they animate a character using rigs rather than mo-cap. I see it, notice how goofy the movements are and immediately go, FAKE AND GAY. TDK trilogy is a great way of using CGI to enhance a film while not making it pervasive.
GAME OVER 001
Splinter is Elmo???
FunnyLittleRedHead
they basiclly used the same stuff that the people used to make childs play 1- the seed of chucky. they used that stuff to control the dolls in those movies.
ImaginationUser
@pyramidhead138 At this point I must stand up and point out that what you say is untrue. Both Animatronics and CGI require a great amount of creativity. The second one is being more popular lately due to its better application into filmed reality. Though it's just as hard to build a believable character with the computer as it is with creating a puppet... and then to make it move properly. But it is a fact that latex puppets look soo much more believable than any digital model.
TONY ISHMEAL
SPLINTER WAS BLACK?
anniepearl121
if shredder was a puppet he would have been ugly!and the way that they make the pupets is so cool i have never seen any thhing that animatronic like that in my life! they put the turtles out in style. ;)
pattyk77
Im talking about his baseball cap in the interview that's red.
pattyk77
the guy who plays mikey with the red hat on was also the pizza delivery man in the first movie. "122 and an 8!" I wish they'd put this on the dvd. I love seeing the technical side of the suits and heads.
Minyadagniriel
3:09 Mikey's been gutted !!
Minyadagniriel
3:09 looks like mikey had a c-section lolol!
lalo2099
More real then with animatronics than now with the stupid computer animation!!!
Mitsuraga
Kevin Clash is famous for playing Elmo, but he's the best Splinter voice we've ever gotten.
Mitsuraga
Kevin Clash is THE voice for Splinter, as much as Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are Batman and the Joker, respectively.
blueeyes
the are opperated the same way the gorgs in fraggle rock are opperated
FitzyCify
As creepy as disembodied Mikey's head "talking" is, it's always fun to see the propmasters messing around and acting like the creatures are real actors behind the scenes.
Breed X
@wvd1979 Beacuse Eastman and Laird hated those two characters from the original cartoon and they we'rent in the original comics. So they comprised with Tokkah and Razar, because originally that was supposed to be Rocksteady and Bebop.
Jeremy M
@nils920 oh i agree , real life is so much better than cgi for ninja turtles.
drunkgorilla
It's crazy. All I use to see was Blonde brunette redhead.
joey giustiniani
@alexander yes he played michalangelo and if you remember correctly he was delivering to himself lol   also the cab driver in the first when ralph is chasing casey jones is ralphael himself lol  the guy talking with the bald spot is the tv news director in the se3ret of the ooze 
Toyman1982
Last resort my ASS they fight at the FIRST sign of danger!! hahaha

TheGreatScottHall
Well said. We know it's a puppet of course (unless someone actually thought they found 5 ft tall turtles to play the part). But with CGI, as much as it has advanced, I actually think it looks more fake in a sense. By that, I mean the graphics look like just that - graphics. It doesn't fool your eyes into thinking it's a real tangible object. I think CGI can be great when woven into a film along with real actors and tangible objects, like in Terminator 2. But it's much too overused today
Jeremy M
@ArcaneDragonX imagine how awesome that would be to own a replica of the suit from the movie and then furthermore beat someone up wearing it.
sheepwolf2004
splinter is cute
jflores85
it pissed me off that in turltes forever the 80's version were all basicly michelangelo. leo wasnt serious or a leader, raph was sarcastic and kept breaking the 4th wall but still
44eelz
Yeah, Totally agree. CG is good sometimes, but it looks all slutty in movies now
booboowilson

NiftyNiklz
Those animatronics are simply amazing, even going into the year 2011.
Time2Keel
Now that's what you call "working" on a movie, real work, done by people who are really talented. CGIs and cartoons, well, they are just that CGIs and Cartoons and nothing more.....
King Kazma
Now THIS was Movie Magic! not CGI OVERDOSE.

Very nice. thanks for posting. I never got to see this before!

what part for Kevin Nash
TherealRNO
@wvd1979: Different ownership.

"Beacuse Eastman and Laird hated those two characters from the original cartoon and they were'nt in the original comics" Many of the characters from the 1987 cartoon or that were released as action figures by Playmates Toys were NOT in the comics. BUT, if it was the case that Eastman & Laird replaced Rocksteady & Bebop with Tokka (similar to Slash of the cartoon, minus the mask and belt) & Razor, then WHY were BOTH sets of characters IN the TMNT 4: Turtles In Time videogame?
ryan goosling
Did the actors I mean Michelan sisti,ken scott etc, realy know about martial arts? Or just some of them or what? And what happend with them? Any of them did somenthing else like a serie, movie or anything else?
nils920
I wish film makers tody would go back to using animatronics I mean, it's much more fun to watch a movie when you know there is something in front of the camera.
kelyaum
Imagin Bebop & Rocksteady and Krang with those stone warriors and ofcourse the Neutrino's ! in the same state of mind as the TMNT 2 Movie! Cowabung yall
kelyaum
Animatronics rocks!!! they gotta do a turtles 4 movie with animatronics and 3d more as some back up
lisitsindancer
totally agree, with cgi ppl bcome lazy to do real movies , all they do now just sit near pc and make cgi graphics... no more tech invention, just pure god damn cgi...
