What happens when you mutate mutant turtles? Shell if I know. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Superman Legend was a 2 episode special created in Japan for the sole purpose of promoting a new line of toys (new in 1996 that is). The plot revolves around the turtles finding magical Mutastones which greatly enhance their gnarlyness. Naturally, Shredder, Bebop, and Rocksteady also acquire stones but nonetheless are foiled by those accursed turtles! Episode 2 is the same exact plot but this time the stones give them magical armor. It ain’t bad for 60-minute commercial. There’s plenty of humor reminiscent of the original series and if you call yourself a fan you owe it to yourself to check it out.

Here’s the opening credits and toy commercial that it’s based on. You can find the full episodes floating around on the internets.
