Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, Hero TGRI Canister with Mutagen Ooze

original movie prop

This is an original hero TGRI canister from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991).

 

The prop master on the film authenticated this canister as one of about 200 canisters used in the film, mostly as background props in the lab. Only one canister used during filming contained any real "ooze," while the others were painted a bright green inside the tubes to simulate the slime. Unfortunately, any hopes of re-animating Tokka and Rahzar are dashed because this is one such green-ooze-painted canister. The canister's tube is made of acrylic, and the side plates and end caps are of a hard plastic. (Stunt canisters contained foam rubber end caps as a safety precaution.) The canister measures approximately 13.5".

 

Ooze canisters are key props in the movie, as they explain the origins of the Turtles and their dramatic transformation from common household pets to lean, mean, green fighting machines.

 

This item was originally acquired from an Azalea Auction event, which was held in Castle Hayne, North Carolina on January 24, 2004, where the Turtles II prop master sold hundreds of props that were previously in storage.
