Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Short 'Strike Hard'


The most famous turtles in the world are making a comeback in a brand new short from Nickelodeon.

Catch up with the famous pizza-eating foursome, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo, in an exclusive short from Nickelodeon.

Brought into this world in 1984 on the pages of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s comic book, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were soon after adapted for television and cinema.

A huge sensation around the world, they’ve been captivating entire generations for over 30 years. We follow the adventures of four turtles who live in the sewers of New York City with their adoptive father, a rat named Splinter. Transformed into anthropomorphic creatures after being exposed to a strange ooze, the turtles are masters of martial arts and defend the city as masked vigilantes.

Acquired in 2009 by Nickelodeon, TMNT got a makeover with the release of a new series made entirely with CGI. Despite some risky changes to the writing, the series was rather well-received by audiences and the fifth season is currently in production.

Riding on the wave of success, Nickelodeon has created several spin-offs and merchandise (toys, video games) including the short films that feature our heroes in brand new adventures, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Short "Strike Hard", where the Ninja Turtles and Krang take off on an epic high-speed chase through NYC. Come and watch it before the open-air screening of Leap! on the Pâquier.
