Jim Henson with the Creature Shop's animatronic Ninja Turtles

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are a popular superhero team of anthropomorphic reptiles who began in a series of comics in 1984] and gained greater fame with an animated series which ran from 1987 to 1996. In 1990, the Jim Henson Creature Shop supplied animatronic versions of the characters for a theatrical film adaptation and its sequel. The third film and an animatronic television series, The Next Mutation, were produced entirely without the involvement of Henson.
