Just wanted to let everyone know that I've added Part 1 of the classic "Making of TMNT: Behind the Shells" to youtube. I thought for sure that it'd already be up there, but I guess not. It's a pretty cool special that came out on VHS in 1991 alongside the theatrical release of TMNT 2: The Secret of the Ooze.

Part 1 focuses on the history behind the creation of the TMNT and Shredder through interviews with TMNT creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. Keep an eye out for future "episodes" which feature Splinter's back story, behind the scenes on The Secret of the Ooze and some other really cool stuff!

Also, as a side note... I don't know if anyone noticed, but James Saito, who played the Shredder in the first TMNT film was featured in the premiere of ABC's new show Eli Stone, which aired tonight. Fran├žois Chau, who played the Shredder in TMNT 2: The Secret of the Ooze plays a recurring character (Dr. Marvin Candle) on ABC hit show LOST, also on Thursday nights. Two Shredders back-to-back ... That's pretty cool.
