MUTATED: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ripoffs and the Direct Market

The origin, future and influence of the _TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES_ and their effects on all forms of entertainment media, including the comic book industry, television, toys, film, and mass-culture.
This installment of the Free Form Film Series brings you an educational and absurd collection of cultural mutations. More than just a presentation about one cartoon fad, BC Sterrett’s lecture/video presentation stands as an assessment of commercial (and oddly, often legal) forms of re-appropriation.  A presentation that, in our age of the hollywood remake, couldn’t be more relevant, and insightful, but also couldn’t be much funnier!
Video footage and lecture by media archeologist/cartoonist BC Sterrett
