Turtle Power!

My production company, Superhero Productions, created the bonus features for Season 4 and Season 5 of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, both of which are now available. For season 4, I spoke to Pat Fraley (the voice of Krang and other characters) and James Avery (the original voice of The Shredder), who many will recognize as Uncle Phil from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I was able to track down all four of the original Turtles for Season 5's special features.
