Turtle power! ♪

Heroes in a half-shell? That's the best.

They're heroes in a half-shell and they're green

Of course they're green!

They're turtles.

Is this the new one or something?

I want to dance right now.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I'm gonna get this song stuck in my head. Thanks.

Splinter taught them to be ninja teens

And Splinter's kind of cute.

The blue one is the best.

I love Ninja Turtles.

Raphael is cool but crude ♪ (Give me a break!)

Michelangelo is a party dude! ♪

These are the 90s.

(singing) Teenager Ninja Turtles!

Oh my gosh!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

- ♪ Heroes in a half-shell. Turtle power! ♪ - Yeah, radical!

Turtle power.


(singing) Teenager Ninja Turtles!

Question time!

(Finebros) So was that the same Ninja Turtles you know from today?



Yeah, but maybe they look more cartoony?

Different theme song, different look.

Today is more 3D.

And that is just flat.

(Finebros) Well, the truth is that the one we showed you is not on TV anymore.

It was on TV when we were kids.

Really? You guys must be old then!

(Finebros) Did you even know there was another cartoon in the past?


No, I thought there's always been just one and then some movies.

I should know about the past! Not only the future.

Not only the present.

(Finebros) Why do they not just bring back what used to be popular?

Why did they start over?

Maybe they thought that they were gonna make a better one?

Because the brand-new version would be even more popular.

It's recycling and everybody loves recycling.

They have all the old stuff, and they revamp it for the new generation.

(Finebros) So do you like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

You just asked me that in the beginning! No!


Mmm, not really.

They're okay.

They're not really my thing, but I like them.


Yeah. They do wicked stuff like...

Shaaa-ba! (groans)

Yes, I do. They were just orphans

and then they turned into super strong heroes.

It's really awesome.

(Finebros) Who's your favorite turtle?


(laughs) Stop it!

I like Michelangelo because he always eats pizza!

(Finebros chuckle)

Like my dad.

Raphael. He's so brave.

Leonardo's probably one of my favorites.

Because Leonardo DiCaprio.

I love Leonardo! I'm his biggest fan.

Hi! Call me!

(Finebros) Do you know there's gonna be a brand-new Ninja Turtles movie?


Oh god, really?



Yes! I've seen the trailers from Michael Bay.

It's awesome!

He said sarcastically.


(Finebros) Do you want to see a preview of the Ninja Turtle movie?

Yes! Yes! Please! Please! Please!

I've been dying to see this for my whole 1,500 years!

Crime, violence and fear have run rampant.

People want justice restored to this world.

And who are those people?

People want heroes, Miss O'Neil.

This seems way better.

And why is she video taping it?!

The heroes are not born.

They're created.

- That's what's your father-- - I have so many questions!

Come on! Let me see the Ninja Turtles now.

Okay, Michael Bay is awesome for trailers.

Only. (laughs)

Is that the blue one?

They're kinda fat.

(gasping) I'm gonna watch that!

That looked terrible.

That's it?

They're trying to make those turtles into humans.

No, no, no, no, no. Whoa!

Chill! It's just a mask.

See? Don't freak out.

- Right? - They look even worse with the mask off!

(Finebros) How does the movie look compared to the TV show?


It looked weird.

Better! It has more detail.

Doesn't look that good.

It looks really, really cool in the trailers, but it's for effects.

You showed the best parts of the movie and then there might be

horrible parts in it.

(Finebros) So did you know though that, just like the TV show

had something in the past, there's also been many

Ninja Turtle movies before this one?

Oh, come on!

How many times do I have to tell the past that I should know about these things?

Yes! On Netflix. That's why they have Netflix. To see movies.

I sort of guessed that there had to be because it's a pretty popular cartoon show.

(Finebros) So I have some pictures to show you of what the Ninja Turtles

looked like in the old movies.

Ooh, this should be fun.

Oh my gosh! That looks scary.

They look very stupid.

Oh, they're uglier than today.

Blue! You're my favorite one. But they look ugly.

- (Finebros) Here is another picture. - Mmm, this looks pretty cool.

Oh my gosh!

What? So stupid!

They're samurais now? That makes sense.

They look so cheesy!

The Ninja Turtles looked fake.

They looked like they were in costume!

(Finebros) People get very upset when something that was made before

that they liked gets remade later. Why do you think that is?

Because they like the old-fashioned,

because you're so used to the old-fashioned.

They want to keep it the same way, how it is.

It's just nostalgia.

They saw it from a long time ago.

Now they see it again and it's all different.

It feels like they just changed their entire childhood.

(Finebros) So we loved the cartoon that we showed you at the beginning,

do you want to watch it now after we told you about it?






Sure. Take a sneak peek.

I would if it had better graphics.

No! Unless you give me popcorn and some Icee and a soda.

It looks kind of boring.

I would watch this.


Not really.

I'm sorry! Don't give me that look.

I'm sorry.

(Finebros) Finally, we know the Ninja Turtles theme song by heart.

- Would you like us to sing it for you? - Yes, please!

Sure, I don't wanna be rude or anything.


(Finebros) Too bad! We're gonna sing it to you anyways.

Ready? Here we go!

(Finebros sing) They're the world's most fearsome fighting team.

(Benny Fine) They're really hip!

(Finebros) They're heroes in a half-shell and they're green.

(Benny Fine) Hey! Get a grip.

(Finebros) When evil Shredder attacks,

these turtle boys don't cut 'em no slack!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Heroes in a half-shell.

Turtle power!


(whispering) Not.


You guys really need to take some singing lessons.


(Finebros) But we knew it by heart all these year later.
