Mario Paint - TMNT Intro

Somebody Actually Animated The 1987 TMNT Intro In Mario Paint

Yep, the entire 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon intro remade with the Super Nintendo’s Mario Paint – it took almost a year but it was so worth it.

Wielding the Super Nintendo’s mouse controller and a couple of old school televisions,  Longtime Cinemassacre/Angry Video Game Nerd affiliate, writer and editor, Mike Matei, undertook the brutally retro task of remaking the entire TMNT cartoon intro by-hand in Mario Paint. The 1992 Microsoft Paint-like game-come-app was a pretty back-to-basics drawing tool, so you can only imagine the amount of effort, patience and coffee that went into completing such an awesome project.
