Trivia
Originally, the studio wanted Bebop and Rocksteady, from the 1987 cartoon, to appear. However, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird were not in favor of it, so Tokka and Rahzar were created.

In the original script, the film was to end on a cliffhanger, with Prof. Perry being revealed to be a robotic shell for an utrom, aliens from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics who created the ooze to power their technology. This was dropped due to the fear of kids mistaking it for Krang, a villain of the cartoon series who was based on the utroms.

Q
What are the differences between the old British VHS and the uncut British DVD?
A
Due to the usage of martial arts weapons two scenes in the old British VHS were cut. These cuts were waived for the DVD release of the movie. Nonetheless a detailed comparison between both version with pictures can be found here.
