Trivia

One possible approach that Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird had for the second movie was to use some of the elements in TMNT issue #2 (the Baxter Stockman/mousers story). The Stockman/mousers tale is pretty straightforward, and could've been lifted from the book with little alterations (though they would have to find another assistant for Stockman, as in the movie April already has a different job). Eastman and Laird also wanted to include the Rat King who they felt could be a really neat, visually arresting character on film, and could have some interesting interactions with him, Splinter, and the mousers.

When I saw the first debut of the turtle's movie I did not want to miss a second. And I did'nt. When the 2nd one came out I loved every second as the 1st, and to this day I still have the collection, and the credit I want to give to is the puppeteers and the suit performers they were awesome bringing those characters to life. Great Job. My full respect for these movies is still strong. Some say I'm too old to watch it still. I don't think so! TMNT Rocks. Let's keep it that Way!
