Looks like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could use some work in the PR department, because today’s children are not feeling these heroes in a half shell.
Whether it’s the “flat” ’90s cartoon style, the “cheesy” costumed movies or the “weird” Michael Bay motion picture reboot, the little judges in this new Kids React video don’t have good things to say about TMNT. Except for 6-year-old Lucas, now there’s a kid who loves nunchuck-wielding reptiles!
The hardest part of this video isn’t the trash-talking about Michelangelo and co., it’s the pop culture ignorance of the new generation. Most of these tykes have no idea that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles started in the ’80s.
“I should know about the past, not only the future, not only the present,” 8-year-old Brooke-Monaé proclaims after learning of the franchise’s history.
Wise words, young lady.
