After the (dwindling) success of the three live action Ninja Turtles movies in the early 90s, there were plans to make a fourth. From the pre-production of that fourth Turtles movie comes this ugly concept art, showing that we would have had to endure some of the crappiest Turtles action figures come to life, including some sort of feral clawed Raphael.
You may remember way back in 1997, also known as “The Beforetime” before 9/11, when there was an episode of Pokemon that was blamed for giving kids seizures. This gave an idea to the US military, who then went on to research the idea of creating a weapon that would induce seizures in the enemy.
When Furbies were flying off store shelves, Hasbro tried to give kids a different option when it came to horrifying little robot pets. Yes, more horrifying than the original Furby, there was also Shelby, a bearded clam version. DEAR GOD.
