Video of the Day: TMNT Summer Shorts – “We Strike Hard and Fade Away Into the Night”

Rachel Summers and the Turtle boys get a real workout in this new Nickolodeon short. This is so much fun, but it’s more than that. The short was produced by two of the best animators living on this planet: Joe Ksander (Animation Director, 9) & Kevin R. Adams (Art Director, 9). Turtles, ninjas and Kraang equal up to one epic thrill ride through NYC.

  1. Awesome! I have been a fan of the Turtles from the Eastman and Laird days of grim-dark black and white line art. Once I acclimated to the artwork, it played well with the characters and their subtle redesigns made them easy to distinguish and appreciate. This was a great video find.
