Last weekend was all about delivering a grounded, fresh spin on the Ninja Turtles, but in celebration of the Turtles’ 30th anniversary, now it’s about looking back and honoring where they came from.  The documentary Turtle Power: Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles covers the rise of our favorite heroes in a half shell beginning with their creation in 1984 when Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman put together the very first comic just for fun, but then wound up selling every single initial print and then some.

In honor of the documentary’s August 12th DVD and digital HD debut, we’re getting the opportunity to bring you a sneak peek at the film.  Click here to check out the trailer and hit the jump for our exclusive TURTLE POWER clip featuring Laird and Eastman recalling the Turtles’ early success.

Here’s the synopsis for TURTLE POWER: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:

In the spring of 1984, a strange new comic book sat beside cash registers in select shops, too big to fit in the racks, and too weird to ignore.  Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles presented a completely original breed of super hero.  It was too bizarre, too crazy.  It broke all the rules and should never have worked.  Until it sold out.  Again and again and again.  For 30 years.  Now, peek under the shell and see how this so-called “happy accident” defied every naysayer to become one of the most popular and beloved franchises in the world.
