Netflix announces “The Toys That Made Us” Season 3
Netflix announced the topics for Season 3 docu-series “The Toys That Made Us” at SDCC.
The panel revealed the subjects will include My Little Pony, Power Rangers, Wrestling, and (finally) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
These are some heavy hitters, and all still very relevant today. My Little Pony was a hit in the 80’s and came back even stronger with a new cartoon in 2010. The hit show grossed over a billion dollars in 2014 in retail alone.
Power Rangers has grown and evolved with the times since it’s release in 1993. The toys hit over $6 billion worldwide and released over 20 films. It got a major Hollywood reboot in 2017.
Wrestling has always been a major seller. From the Bash-Em buddies in the 80’s to today’s video games. WWE recently struck a TV deal valued at over $4 billion.
And of course (why we’re all here) the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. From the original comic to the explosion of Turtle Mania in the 80’s and 90’s, the TMNT franchise is celebrating almost 35 years. With a new cartoon from Nickelodeon coming in September, the Turtles show no sign of slowing down.
No details on when the show will air, but seasons 1 and 2 are available to watch on Netflix. They’ve covered Star Wars, GI Joe, Hello Kitty and more in their 2 seasons. It’s a wonderful series for anyone interested in pop culture. We’ll keep you posted when it airs!
