Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Dedicated to the memory of Jim Henson.
  • Originally, the studio wanted Bebop and Rocksteady, from the 1987 cartoon, to appear. However, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird were not in favor of it, so Tokka and Rahzar were created.
  • At the beginning of the film where April enters her apartment and picks up a pile of magazines, the top one is actually a comic book of [Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles].
  • Ernie Reyes Jr. was Donatello's fight double in the first film. Producers liked Reyes so much, they created the role of Keno just for him.
  • Corey Feldman, the original voice of Donatello in the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, was recast in this film due to his public problems with drugs. After he was sober, he rejoined the cast for the third film.
  • The building used for the entrance to April's apartment is the office to the New York location of Jim Henson's Creature Shop.
