By "definitive" they mean through 1990 or so, but that's okay, as that really covers that first initial wave of Turtlemania that swept the globe. With a runtime of just over 90 minutes, this is never the less a very thorough documentary about how an independently made black and white comic with a strange title and an even stranger premise came to dominate popular culture in the late 80s and early 90s. It features nearly all the people who were there and played a vital role, from creators Eastman and Laird to the makers and voice talent from the cartoon to the director and stars of the first live action movie to the people at Playmates toys who helped the Turtles become one of the biggest toy lines of all time. This is a well and lovingly made documentary and a must-see for any Turtles fan.
