If you’re one of those Turtles fans who has been stuck lately living under their shell, you might have missed the release, firstly, of 2014’s Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on VOD, and still, even the release of the film onto DVD last in October 2014. Or maybe you just haven’t have enough money to pick it up on DVD? For whatever reason one might give for not having seen not just the best Turtles documentary of all time, but rightly so, one of the best documentary films of 2014, the film’s distributor Paramount Pictures has just launched The Paramount Vault–which aims at posting a selection of their titles up on YouTube for the world to enjoy for free. And guess which one of their titles has just hit YouTube?
That’s right. Now you can watch Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for free on YouTube in its entirety. Coming out on the heels of the 30th Anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Turtle Power documents the origins of the Turtles as hyper-parodies in the mind’s eye of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird and finds them evolving into one of the most successful and influential iconography of the 20th Century that treads the atmosphere of comic books, animation, merchandise, and live-action film. Or as someone says in Turtle Power: “It all started in 1984…”
The Paramount Vault was recently launched on YouTube to showcase of Paramount’s catalog that would likely appeal to the contemporary youth audience and it’s certainly working, and the launch has garnered quite a bit of press online and has social media chiming in about it all. It’s a welcome addition to streaming video online, and in fact, is rightly, long over due. Kudos to Paramount! Now, quit wasting time and start watching Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
