We found out just a few days ago that Michael Bay and company are rebooting the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, but our beloved teenage turtle-shelled heroes will be "from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable." This tough new look completely karate kicks the whole original idea we are all costumed to in the face and fans everywhere are pissed. To make light of all this mumbo jumbo, Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Kimmel separately wrote sketches surrounding the outcry of the fans.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Yesterday the Internet was in a complete uproar, but not over the news that Platinum Dunes was going ahead with a 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot (we're used to that already especially since the last time they did that was with a CGI animated movie back in 2007). No, fans were fuming over the fact that producer Michael Bay wanted our favorite pizza loving turtles not to be mutated but aliens from another world, thus deleting the "mutant" in their title. After all of the crazy complaining online about the sudden decision to alter the Ninja Turtles' origin story, Michael Bay told fans to take a chill pill. What exactly did he say?
Ever since Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird first created the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' in their comics around 1984, fans still can't get enough of the pizza loving abnormal reptilians and their Turtle Power. Just think about how cool the story sounded when kids first heard of the television show. You have a bunch of large turtles fighting crime with the help of a large rat. There's no way that doesn't sound totally cool. However, this time the big twist isn't whether or not this will be animated or live-action. Producer Michael Bay gave away what'll make these turtles a bit different the third time around.
