  • The Brits Cut Out The Offensive Bangers on Random Behind-The-Scenes Stories Of How 'TMNT II: Secret of Ooze' Became A Cinematic Disast

    (#13) The Brits Cut Out The Offensive Bangers

    American parents and educators were the inspiration behind nixing the nunchucks in TMNT II, but it was the British Board of Film Classification that took things even further in the name of young audiences.

    As part of an effort to make the film more kid-friendly, Michelangelo’s trusty nunchucks were replaced by a link of sausages in a mall food court scene early in the film. Evidently, this still offended censors in the UK, so the scene was cut out of the film in order to maintain a kid-friendly rating.

  • The Bad Guys Had To Let Themselves Get Beat Up  on Random Behind-The-Scenes Stories Of How 'TMNT II: Secret of Ooze' Became A Cinematic Disast

    (#14) The Bad Guys Had To Let Themselves Get Beat Up

    Stuntman and pioneering motion-capture performer Daniel Pesina was one of many stunt performers who portrayed henchmen in TMNT II. During an appearance on the game-themed YouTube show UpUpDownDown, he attested to the difficulty of fighting properly with the Turtle performers, mainly due to the costumes' limited field of vision.

    In fact, the stuntmen literally had to dive into the Turtles' punches and kicks just to sell each fight move. This explains why you see the henchmen dancing around on their toes so much instead of going on the attack.

  • The Ninja Rap Was Written In Half An Hour on Random Behind-The-Scenes Stories Of How 'TMNT II: Secret of Ooze' Became A Cinematic Disast

    (#2) The Ninja Rap Was Written In Half An Hour

    Every once in a while, there comes a piece of cinema whose soundtrack makes as much of a splash as the film itself. Such is the case of Secret of the Ooze. Hot off the success of “Ice, Ice, Baby,” rapper Vanilla Ice was tapped by the studio to create a theme for the sequel, which ended up earning him some substantial screen time in the third act.

    While the lyrics of “The Ninja Rap” might be burrowed into your long-term memory even more than the state capitals, the song itself took Mr. Ice a mere 30 minutes to write.

  • The Mysterious Ooze Was Never Explained  on Random Behind-The-Scenes Stories Of How 'TMNT II: Secret of Ooze' Became A Cinematic Disast

    (#8) The Mysterious Ooze Was Never Explained

    If comic creators Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman had it their way, the mystery of where the mutant-forming ooze came from would have been a much more interesting origin story. In the final cut of the film, the ooze was explained to be a simple accident that occurred at the TGRI power plant, much to the Turtles’ collective dismay.

    However, the mysterious sludge was actually supposed to be a substance created by an alien race known as the Utrom. In fact, Professor Perry, who turned out to be an ally for the Turtles, was supposed to be an Utrom in disguise. Ultimately, the idea was nixed over concerns that the character would be confused with Krang, another alien villain from the original source material.

  • April O'Neil Was Unceremoniously Replaced on Random Behind-The-Scenes Stories Of How 'TMNT II: Secret of Ooze' Became A Cinematic Disast

    (#5) April O'Neil Was Unceremoniously Replaced

    When fans of the original film turned up for the franchise’s triumphant return, they were surprised to find that reporter April O’Neil looked a little different this time around. Judith Hoag, the comic actress who first teamed up with the Turtles in 1990, was quietly replaced by Paige Turco for mysterious reasons.

    Hoag believes it had to do with her voicing concerns about the strenuous conditions on set, both for her and the stunt team, as well as her opinions about the level of aggression in the film. “Everybody was beating everybody up,” Hoag lamented. “I thought the movie suffered because of that. It was something I spoke to the producers about, I think they thought I was too demanding, and moved on.”

  • Corey Feldman Was In Rehab During Production on Random Behind-The-Scenes Stories Of How 'TMNT II: Secret of Ooze' Became A Cinematic Disast

    (#6) Corey Feldman Was In Rehab During Production

    Sharp-eared fans of the TMNT franchise most likely noticed that the voice of Donatello sounded a little different in between the first and third films of the series. This was because Corey Feldman, who originally starred in the role, was in the middle of a rehab stint during the production of the second film.

    Unlike fellow absent co-star Judith Hoag, Feldman was asked to reprise his role once the third film went into development.
