Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Coming Out of Their Shells



Did you know that in 1990 the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles went on a concert tour (or at least guys dressed up to look like them did)? This is the soundtrack to that concert (which I found out was a promotional cassette from Pizza Hut), courtesy of Kids Music Fan from Boston.

NOTE: For some reason, Track 4 (Skipping Stones) is listed twice. I'll try to fix that in the next few days. Until then, just delete the extra one and you're all set!

Here's the track list:

  1. Coming Out of Their Shells
  2. Sing About It
  3. Tubin'
  4. Skipping Stones
  5. Pizza Power
  6. Walk Straight
  7. No Treaties
  8. Cowabunga
  9. April Ballad
  10. Count on Us

And here's a hilarious review of the "Making of the 'Coming Out of Their Shells' Tour" video from Matt at X-Entertainment!

Thanks alot. Brought back some great memories from my youth. I used to own two copies of their tour but over the years they disappeared. This is special. Thank You.

That's just awesome. Thanks a lot for this. My cassette died when I was in my teens and I'm just geeky enough to want to hear this music now and then.

OMGosh! I can't believe I was able to get the songs on my Mac! I love you! This is great. I can remember way back when I went and saw the concert, bought the VHS and soundtrack...oh those were the days! My girls are sure going to enjoy this! I am such a dork but I can't help it TMNT were my favorite growing up! I am having flashbacks of the good ol' days and I am only 23! hahaha

Thanks for posting this!

Don't have access to a cassette deck anymore, and I can't seem to find this on a CD anywhere.
Thanks for bringing back a 27yo's childhood memories!

Thanks! This was such a huge part of my childhood. I dragged my parents to Pizza Hut to buy the tape, and played it till it burned out. Thanks for making it available again! Here's a question I've wondered about for twenty years - who is actually playing this music? What band is it?? I could never find this info anywhere.

awesome. My kid just found a box of all my old turtles action figures and has been hounding me to watch the movies (which I now can't find) all week. This should buy me some time to find the videos. Big thanks!

Holy Cow - thanks for uploading this stuff!! I loved this album as a kid.

After dropping out of a prestigious acting school, Michael Ian Black found himself playing Donatello on this tour! I think that probably shaped him into the great actor/comedian he is today! :D I couldn't find any proof of this fact on wikipedia, or the internet at all for that matter. But that's what he told me once.

Man, this is sweet! I have been looking all over the web for someplace that has these songs. iTunes didn't have it. I might be a dork for still liking this music, but at least I remember some of the best things that were made in the 80s.
