You've got to check out this totally awesome stop-motion animated intro to the classic animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! I didn't know what to expect when I first saw this in my email inbox, but when I watched it I was completely blown away and had to share it with you. This video is very well done, and fun to watch. It made me want to go back and revisit the orginal series. It was created by Kyle Roberts and here's a note on their YouTube page:
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. The original TMNT theme song was covered by Oklahoma native band, The Boom Bang, in their "garage surf punk" style. Each of these pieces can stand alone by themselves, but when infused together they create a radical tribute.
