Original TMNT Cartoon Opening Recreated Entirely In Mario Paint For Super Nintendo

December 6, 2016


This is the original 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cartoon opening recreated frame by frame by Mike Matei of Cinemassacre entirely in Mario Paint for the Super Nintendo. After the animation Mike discusses the project and how he went about completing it. It sounds like a real labor of love. Like having a baby, but nothing like having a baby except that it took a long time. And especially nothing like having a demon baby like my sister just did. Congrats, Becky! I don't even have a sister. Or at least not one I'm admitting to since she birthed that demon spawn.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Shane, who can't wait for the original He-Man cartoon opening version provided the world doesn't end in the eight months it takes to animate.

    Very impressive.

    But points deducted for saying that Raphael was cool but "crude". No. It's "rude".

    I'm 33 years old now, but I can still remember the Christmas morning that I got Mario Paint. It may have been the most used/played game I ever got for the SNES. I miss it now.

  • Grand Old Drummer

    I loved that game. I still have my copy.

    You can always count on YouTube. Someone made a 10 hr video of BGM 1. Right on!


  • Some of us moved on to Photoshop, Flash, Adobe Premire, etc. because of Mario Paint :)

    True story. Here I am today using Lightroom on a regular basis.

  • You can load up a SNES emulator and load up Mario Paint and use your mouse for input - you will get bored in like 10 minutes though.

    yr have passed since I decided to resign from my previous work and I never felt this good... I started freelancing on-line, over a site I stumbled upon over internet, for a few hrs each day, and I profit now much more than i did on my office job... My paycheck for last month was for Nine thousand dollars... Amazing thing about this gig is that i have more free time for my kids... http://urlin.it/143f7e

    Selling your saggy anus for crack cocaine may be making you money right now but eventually your anus will prolapse & you'll no longer be able to work. How will you earn money then?! Sucking cocks for meth amphetamine!?

    Good lord. I would have done a single frame and given up. Actually, I would have done half a frame, realized I can't draw or do anything even remotely artistic and given up to eat ice cream.

    Yeah you sound like me. Too much work and dedication. He did all of that with a mouse too? I would have went crazy!
