Of all the 1980s animated series with opening sequences far better than the actual shows that followed (like, nearly all of them), the most famous is arguably that of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' first few seasons. Devastatingly dope in every perceivable way, the theme song and accompanying animation saw April O'Neil drive the Turtle Van a million miles per hour, Splinter painfully transforming into a crate-demolishing rat dude, Michelangelo breakdancing and the team of mutant brothers fearlessly leaping head first into action against a planet-sized Technodrome. Feeding off the original opening's awesomeness, Kyle Roberts and Nathan Poppe stop motion animated custom versions of NECA's TMNT figures and many Playmates toys atop hand-drawn backgrounds to the sounds of a theme song cover by The Boom Bang. The results are tubuloso, to say the least. Feast upon the spirited recreation the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opening sequence, plus a making-of video and a download of The Boom Bang's theme song cover after the jump.
