Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

The original, bodacious live-action adaptation of the cartoon/toy franchise. The origin story utilised Jim Henson-created latex costumes and puppetry to bring the mutant teens to life.

When the NYPD can't stop a crime wave caused by The Shredder and his Foot Clan, four vigilantes rise - Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello and Raphael. The foursome are trained by rodent ninja Splinter and work with reporter April O'Neil (Judith Hoag) as they fight to take back the city.
