    She went to play Ursula in The Little Mermaid on Broadway. Another bad stage version of childhood favorite.

    God, I am so glad that I some how completely missed this. Being obsessed with the turtles back in day, this should have been on my radar, but thank god I missed it.
  • Moreno X  - to Shadowstorm87x
    Turtles were part of my childhood days of growing up with cartoons. Everything related to TMNT was what I had enjoyed, but never knew there's a concert like this. Guess it didn't spread far enough to every TMNT fan across the globe. I'm sure the fans - grownups and kids - regretted to pay that garbage and, in a result, had stop the concert nightmare to tour anywhere.

    That didn't stop the people to make a video about the concert. What did they expected in return from making this concert movie?

    Why is Slimer holding the skull of the Nostalgia Critic?

    Slimer? Looks more like a rejected Pac-Man ghost to me.

    Looks like Clyde got drunk. Someone must've spiked the punch at Bad-Anon or something.

    I've actually been wondering why a skull that is apparently supposed to be the NC's has kept appearing in the tittle cards also...

    I think it's just a "rivalry" nod to NC.

    The green ghost has been appearing in Phelous' title cards for quite some time now. I can't recall him actually being in any of the movies reviewed. I think Andrew Dickman just wanted a mascot character to incorporate in them.

    The Nostalgia Critic skull appeared in the Halloweenie shorts and, similarly, Dickman has been hiding it in the title cards because I assume he just really liked Halloweenie.
  • Shadowstorm87x
    Parents in the audience are like "what the fuck, kill us"
  • SRanger1071  - Bad miking
    And why do the Turtles have mic stands if they're using headsets? The feedback would make everyone's ears bleed within a 3 mile radius! Or maybe that was the idea because of the horrible music . . .

    I think I remember seeing this at a video store and my Dad telling me no when I wanted to rent it. Good call Dad.

    You should get your dad a exellent Christmas present as a thankyou for not letting you rent that all those years ago; he saved your soul from hell!

    cool video, just as funny as the avgn video about this, and oh i just made a turtles related video

    It's a review of the 2012 turtles games and has an action animation at the end of the video with super cross over!

    Great review, but man was it painful to watch. I'm glad that concert fell into obscurity, otherwise it would have killed all things turtle.
    Dollars to doughnuts the original footage, props, and costumes are all in the Indiana Jones warehouse. Or maybe even in the Ark of the Covenant.

    Great video. The NC and AVGN review of the making of the Coming Out of Their Shells was actually how I discovered this site back in 09 . I can't believe I actually had the VHS as a kid.
  • Moreno X  - to Flip Munk
    And which one do you like the most? The NC/AVGN review or this one? 'Cause now Phelous' review on TMNT-Coming Out of Their Shells got me laughing so hard that I think I got PHELOUSED!, not SHREDDERED!

    Sounds dumb and creepy at the same time, yes?
  • Mothmouth
    Hilarious review.

    Shredder hates music... and he sings about it. *Head explodes*

    Man, the Nostalgia Critic and Angry Nerd did not reveal any of this about the concert, but that was clearly for our own good.

    I can't believe I was lucky enough to only grow up with the cartoon and the movie (the first one, not the sequels thankfully).
  • Moreno X  - to Mothmouth
    You said it bud. Critic and Nerd sure spared us any more torture this concert. And maybe not. But letting Phelous do this was a comedy gold idea. I laugh hard that I even never knew there was a concert about the TMNT. I knew the cartoon, the toys, the movies, but NOT this crap.

    Time does fly by so fast yet so slow when we look back and see how did we ever get addicted to them in the first place.

    Awwww, omg that was Phelous when he was a kid?


    How adorable! :D
  • Zihon

    hear shreder rap i can say that he hate music, nobody who like music can do something like that
  • ladydiskette

    The "Walk Straight" song always got me how they talk about not being afraid and going against the crowd but then they throw in "do what the turtles say!" out of the blue to counter-act the original intent of the song's message.



    Also, its been a while, and I may have been out of the TMNT loop but I don't recall Leonardo ever calling April O'Neil "babe" maybe Michealango or Rapheal but certainly not Leonardo. He was pretty down-to-earth and respectful like that.

    Phelous never pointed out some of the kids' expressions in the audience? You missed out on some good material for this review. Was never a fan of the turtles but this is horrid and intolerable for the older fans.
  • Moreno X
    Well Phelous, I don't always comment on your videos, buth this one got be PHELOUSED to sign in, rate 5 stars and comment on how funny this video was. Thanksssss......

    PS: Anyone who watch Phelous' videos, don't you ever feel you've been PHELOUSED? It's creepy, and I'm Canadian like Phelous...only he's from Nova Scotia and I'm at Ontario. Strange.
  • JoeDawson15
    Phelous, plz review Halloween 4 and 5 after christmas, please??/ Oh and nice dig at the Alien Turtles film with Col. Schrader. lol
  • zepolmas  - JESUS H. CHRIST OF LATER DAY SAINTS!
    HOW CAN ANY HUMAN BEING ON EARTH STAND THIS!?
    HOW CAN YOU WATCH THIS!?
    THIS IS SO FUCKING SAD!!!
    IT'S PHYSICALLY PAINFUL!!!
  • zepolmas  - re; "I Hate Music"
    I BELIVE YOU!
    IT'S THE ONLY LOGICAL EXPLAINATION FOR ANY OF THIS!
  • Larie
    Hahaha, the inclusion of your old photos was so funny!
  • S_Pac_3:16

    I use to have that VHS...so I know your pain. lol, but I guess it was stupidly funny and I enjoyed as a kid.
    And the songs from the album were stupidly catchy and fun as well, haha.
    Good video.
  • Jester
    avatar
    See...the reference to "We're Turtles, remember!" was a "joke" tied to asking April to slow down.
    Get it...Turtles....slow...se e.

    Also in one episode Mikey turns to a human and looses all his "Turtle Powers"...the "You're ninjas!" shout was exactly how I reacted to that load, too.

    This concert was a weird direction for the franchise, but I contend that the comic strip was even weirder.
    Also, Shredder must have caused some deaths in the cartoons, off the top of my head I'm remembering that episode where he causes a perpetual winter by using Krang's device to drain energy from the sun, that would have killed hundreds at the very least, possibly millions, that's way more than this Rita Repulsa lookalike.

    All the "NOs" flying across the screen during the Cowabunga song slayed me, as did crappy Shredder and that Raphael you met when you were a kid, HOLY SHIT

    Makes Turtles Xmas Special look awesome by comparison. This could replace waterboarding as a form of torture.
  • txcforever
    Phelous is probably the only reviewer on the site that his videos keep getting better and better.

    This one, the Halloween 3 one and the Halloweenie videos are the funniest videos I've seen in a long time on TGWTG.

    all i could think of when Shredder appeared was J. Johan Jameson laughing from the Raimi Spider-Man movies

    I guess NC and AVGN did it first, but I think Phelous did it better.
