Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Homage to Dungeons & Dragons and Mazes & Monsters

Booyakasha! Did I even mention we are big TMNT fans in my house? We are. The current show is awesome too! We watch it all the time.


Ok. So either someone over at Nick reads this blog, or an enormous coincidence has just occurred. Actually it's more likely that there is just a Dungeons & Dragons nexus web/lattice of coincidence going on, you know, with the upcoming release of D&D Next and all.

Whatever the case, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just did a D&D Mazes and Monsters episode called Mazes & Mutants. The episode opens with the turtles playing an old school RPG they found called Mazes and Mutants. It looks suspiciously almost exactly like the classic D&D Basic box and the RED box of yore rolled into one.

So after a brief and very funny opening of the 4 turtles playing this old school game that looks very much like D&D Basic they decide to finish their game as a LARPing session in the sewers—just like the film, you know, the one we were discussing a month ago...Mazes & Monsters. Lol. My kids and I could not believe it.

I still cant believe it. 

TMNT did D&D and Mazes & Monsters.


We're still in total shock. 

I need to watch it again. 

And again. 

Go over to Apple TV to download it.

Eventually the 4 turtles are all dressed up in LARPing costumes battling in a real dungeon. 

No more spoilers. Just go download it! 



It also looks like there will be toys of them in their LARPing costumes too. Double bonus. :)

Enjoy all.
