The Creature Shop's work on the original TMNT movies was amazing

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was all budget reasons. Jim had passed away before the 2nd movie was released, so it seems pretty unlikely that his disapproval of the violence would be the reason.

    The Creature Shop did the first two movies, the third one was done by a company called All Effects. There is a video of them demonstrating the system used to create the turtles on YouTube:



    The documentary Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has a great behind-the-scenes account of the making of the movies. It's available on Netflix, as well as DVD/Blu-ray.

    Oh that's too bad. It is on Netflix here in Canada still (or at least was the last time I checked).
