Four teenage mutant ninja turtles emerge from the shadows to protect New York City from a gang of criminal ninjas.
Nowhere in this movie or its sequels is mentioned the word "mutagen", it's referred to as a strange glowing liquid or ooze. Even tho mutagen is a word used to describe why the turtles are mutants.
Much more than just a series of small, isolated incidents, it's now apparent that an organized criminal element is at work and at the moment, business is good. So good in fact that there appear to be no eyewitnesses to any of these crimes. With ...
While fleeing the Foot Clan in the junk shop, the same brief scene of Donatello turning and punching out one of the Foot is used twice.
The film title appears from behind the corner of the sewer, just before the Turtles come around it and are fully seen for the first time.
In the UK theatrical, television and VHS versions, the ban on chain-sticks caused two scene notable scene trims. The face-off in April's apartment in which Michaelangelo and a member of The Foot perform chain-stick moves in succession was removed completely, with the fight starting instead with Donatello diving through the air directly after this sequence. Another sequence trimmed heavily was the apparent death of Shredder. In the full length version, Shredder charges at Splinter, who produces a pair of chain-sticks, wraps them around Shredder's staff and hurls him over the edge of the building. Shredder hands onto his staff which Splinter maintains his grip on, and Splinter begins a speech, but is interrupted by Shredder, throwing a scythe at him. Splinter moves to one side, and Shredder looses his grip on the staff, falling into the garbage truck where he is crushed. This was heavily trimmed so that it appears Shredder runs at Splinter, who seemingly trips him up, and Shredder just falls over the edge as Splinter watches on. The original versions of both scenes were reinstated for the 2004 DVD.
