Party Turtle

Kodak Moment #93

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is my dad on March 19th, 1993.

Cowabunga Corner 114: The end of the Party Turtle

There are some things that are hard for people to talk about, for me it’s the end of the party Turtle days.  I truly enjoyed wearing my Turtle costume to bring joy to those around me.  Only for that to be torn away from me, because of something I could not control.  In this video is the story of just why I stopped doing the birthday parties and more.

Cowabunga Corner 110: AMC Abby 8 with the Party Turtle

In this episode I share footage from 1991 at a local Movie Theater, the AMC Abby 8.  Growing up this was one of the main movie theaters we would go too.  They did not have the first TMNT movie at this theater, though they did get TMNT 2.  We were brought in as the Party Turtle by a radio station which was holding their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party there, giving away posters, candy, sticker albums and more. 

Retiring a part of my TMNT History

In 1993, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were still going strong in Michigan, with the third movie coming to theaters it was an exciting time.  By this point my family had been doing parties as the Party Turtle for two years. Though my costume began to look very worn out from age and me being over active in the suit, so it was time to make a new one.  The new costume was finished in less than a week, as it was worked on by my dad, mom and I.  We were happy to have it done on March 19th, the same day TMNT III came to the theaters.  19 years later, and that costume is now up for retirement.
