Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Conquers New Zealand and Russia


Nickeledeon’s 2012 reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was initially met with scorn by longtime fans of the franchise, partly because a lot of people mistook it for Michael Bay’s much-maligned movie reboot (which removed the Teenage and the Mutant from the franchise, and turned the turtles into aliens), and partly because they thought the CG would be awful. Boy, were they wrong. Because Nick’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles turned out to be all kinds of awesome, and drew praise from both longtime fans and kids who are too young to remember the original 2D animated show.

Continuing its success in North America, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were recently picked up by Russia’s TNT and New Zealand’s Channel Four for their respective territories, with the former already having started airing the 26 episodes that comprise season 1 while Channel Four, which is owned by Mediaworks, will air season 1 starting this month.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been a global hit for Nick since its launch last fall, with deals in place for Brazil, Nicaragua, Uruguay, Australia, Philippines, Singapore, the Middle East, Lithuania, Ukraine, Portugal and Spain.
