The Turtles have a fanbase that spans generations
Kansas City, MO; New York, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2007
Just in time for the release of their new CG-animated movie, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles® are ready to kick some shell on mobile phones, courtesy of a new mobile product line from 4Kids Entertainment, Inc., Mirage Licensing, Inc. and uclick.
Mobile phone users can download exclusive video, games, ringtones, wallpapers, and mobile versions of the movie prequel comic books from all major carriers, including Cingular, Verizon and Sprint. They can also visit http://www.gocomics.com/TMNT or text "TMNT" to 26642.
The TMNT line of mobile products is being released to coincide with the fighting foursome's long-awaited return to the big screen on March 23. The mobile offering includes the Turtles in all their various forms -- CG animation, TV cartoons, and classic comics.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were created in 1983 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. The characters made their debut the following year in a self-published comic book that quickly sold out and made Eastman and Laird's creations the hottest licensing property on the planet. In the decades since, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have appeared in motion pictures, cartoons, comic strips, toys, comic books and more.
"The Turtles have a fanbase that spans generations," said Jeff Webber, uclick Director of Product Development. "This is the first time these world famous characters have ever been available on mobile phones, where they can reach legions of fans in a way they never have before. Mobile phone users of all ages can get their Turtles fix anywhere they go."
