Matty P Presents: Saturday Morning Cereal Episode 15 TMNT Power! – Evan Daugherty & Randall Lobb

SMC Logo

Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world, and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. Join us this week as we discuss all things Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle on the 30th anniversary of these Heroes In A Half-shell. We talk to Evan Daugherty, screenwriter for the new Michael Bay Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles blockbuster reboot (in theaters now!), and to Randall Lobb, the writer and director of Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (new on DVD this week!), and we realize that we’re all getting older…

To Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

we interviewed the writer, director of

Turtle Power- The Definitive History of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Randall Lobb


In the spring of 1984, a strange new comic book sat beside cash registers in select shops, too big to fit in the racks, and too weird to ignore. Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles presented a completely original breed of super hero. It was too bizarre, too crazy. It broke all the rules and should never have worked. Until it sold out. Again and again and again. For 30 years. Now, peek under the shell and see how this so-called “happy accident” defied every naysayer to become one of the most popular and beloved franchises in the world.
