Teenage Mutant Ninja Cavemen

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are a popular superhero team of anthropomorphic reptiles who began in a series of comics in 1984 and gained greater fame with an animated series which ran from 1987 to 1996. In 1990, the Jim Henson Creature Shop supplied animatronic versions of the characters for a theatrical film adaptation and its sequel. The subsequent live-action films following the sequel and an animatronic television series, The Next Mutation, were produced entirely without the involvement of Henson.
