Trivia: At one point in the movie Shredder scolds Tatsu, and right after that, Tatsu curses saying, "kuso." That's about the equivalent of saying sh*t in Japanese.

Trivia: One of the street punks tells the police chief to check out the "East" Warehouse out on "Lairdman" Island. This is a tribute to Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, the creators of the TMNT.


Trivia: Skeet Ulrich, from the original Scream movie, got one of his very first on-screen roles with this movie. He can be seen playing an uncredited thug to the left of the kid who tells the cops to check out the warehouse.


Trivia: The four actors playing the Turtles also had cameo appearances in the movie without their costumes: Tilden (Donatello) was the Foot messenger that says "We've been looking for you, Miss O'Neil". Pais (Raphael) is the passenger in the taxi cab that says "What the heck was that?" Sisti (Michelangelo) is the pizza delivery man that can't find the Turtle's address. Foreman (Leonardo) plays a gang member in the warehouse when Casey Jones defeats Tatsu.


Trivia: Most of the boxes in the warehouse hideout have the "Mirage" logo on them, a nod to Mirage Comics, the publisher of the original TMNT comic book.


Trivia: Famed actor Sam Rockwell ("Iron Man 2", "Moon", "Galaxy Quest") got his start in this film, playing one of the troubled teens seduced by the foot clan. He plays the kid who offers cigarettes to another teen, and delivers the line about the "East warehouse on Lairdman island."

Trivia: In this movie, the broken container that held the "ooze" has the words "RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL" over a black and yellow background. In TMNT 2, the label is green with "T G R I", for Techno Global Research Institute.
