I don't know if any of you guitar heroes remember this or not, but did any of you actually play the song by Mondo Gecko's band, Merciless Slaughter, transcribed between the panels of Archie TMNT Adventures #18 ?

Here is another shirt I found with the Man Ray one. It was a give-a-away and was printed up to celebrate the astounding success of the first film. It includes a quote from funny man Robin Williams in the bottom left corner.

Any of you hard-core collectors have this early interview with Pete and Kev? It was conducted by famed toy czar/dealer Bill Bruegman. Mr. Bruegman is pictured here with Kirk Hammet of Metallica and Eddie Van Halen of Van Halen after their show in Cleveland.

Honestly, did the rap song in this book help anyone to not do drugs?
"Some kids at the playground say they just smoke pot.
But listen, buddies, you'd better not.
Once potheads want to have a high,
there's lots of poison they might try.
You're not dumb, so don't take dope.
When they pass those joints, be like us. Say "Nope!"
So let's have a pizza with extra cheese.
No anchovies, if you please.
No crack, no smack, no angel dust-
Just the Turtles and you...the kids we trust!"

Here's a vintage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle T-shirt I've had for years. Back in the day these were everywhere around Mirage and we all snagged a few to wear. I grabbed this one when I saw that crazy cockroach, Scumbug was on it. I have a Man Ray one somewhere and also a couple with Wingnut and Mondo Gecko on them. I had a bunch with different turtle art but they must be long gone. They were faded and tattered anyway, worn out by all the repeated washing and wearing.
Found this old photo of Pete tuning up before one of our jam sessions. Dig that crazy swirl pattern on my Lido Supreme drum kit. So 60's. Oh, and that is Dan with all the hair in the foreground.
