Cowabunga dudes! Videographers Kyle Roberts and Nathan Poppe set about recreating the opening credits to the 1987 animated series of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The duo opted for the stop-motion approach, with Poppe drawing the colourful backdrops and Roberts posing the TMNT action figures (and a very special action star in the role of Splinter). The Boom Bang provided a cover of the theme song. 4000 images later and their nostalgic tribute to the heroes in a half shell was complete. Check it out below.
