The Making of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Behind the Shells is a 30-minute documentary video on the making of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, released in 1991. Although the title and back package text suggest that the video focuses on the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, the emphasis is wholly on the second film and, justifying the title, primarily on the creation and performance of the Turtles themselves, with some coverage of Splinter and other Creature or effects characters.
