We Wish You a Turtle Christmas is, as its name suggests, a 1994 Christmas direct-to-video film based on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Why It Sucks
- The story is terrible. The Turtles forget to buy Splinter a gift and they have to go find one for him.
- The costumes look very fake and nightmarish. The Turtles constantly grin throughout the whole film, the removable heads are easily noticeable and the lip-syncing is completely off. Also, Splinter's design looks more like a gerbil than a rat.
- The voice-acting is really bad. The Turtles sound like they have Jamaican accents instead of American accents.
- Countless padding, the most egregious one being how the undisguised Turtles are able to walk out onto the streets of New York without getting shot at.
- Plenty of pointless scenes that drag on and on, such as Michelangelo singing opera in the middle of Times Square.
- The Turtles versions of "Deck The Halls" and "12 Days of Christmas" are outright repetitve and dumb.
- It's not long, only 25 minutes.
- It can be entertaining for how bad it is.
- The singing isn't bad.
- The song "Oh, Little City Of New York" is sung pretty good and might be the best song in the film.
- The poor production values of the special can at least be excused since it was all done with an insanely tiny budget of $5,000.
