    Opening to the Fall 1990/Spring 1991 VHS of the first TMNT movie
  • It was initially announced in the Spring of 1990 that Buena Vista Home Entertainment would take over the TMNT license. Over the summer months after the first TMNT movie hit theatres, a compromise between Mirage, Disney and Carolco was reached. Carolco would retain home video distribution for the TV show while Buena Vista handled the movies. Future TMNT tapes and laserdiscs under Carolco would keep the "handwriting pad" logo of Family Home Entertainment, used by FHE since at least 1985. This summer (1991), all other FHE licensed properties will start using the CGI "paintbrush" logo.

    To complicate things a tad further, this compromise was reached about just a few months before Carolco entered merger talks with Grand Diamond.

    Without further ado, here's how the opening of the first TMNT movie on VHS looks like in the US ITTL:




    The Pizza Hut "Right Field" Commercial

    VO (Grant Goodeve): "And now for our feature presentation!"
    Music: Great Ovation by Steve Gray

    Finally, the film begins with the combined "double fanfare" arranged by John Du Prez.

    The VHS & Laserdisc release of Star Trek III: The Voyage Home was dedicated to the memory of creator Gene Roddenberry, who passed away just a few months after the film's theatrical run.​

    Entertainment News for May 1991
  • The long-rumored merger between Grand Diamond and Carolco is complete. Carolco was founded in the late 1970's by Mario Kassar and Andrew Vajna. In 1988, Vajna left Carolco to serve as vice president under Alan Ladd, Jr. at Bally's Hollywood Pictures. Grand Diamond was itself the result of a 1978 merger between Roger Corman's New World Pictures and Samuel Arkoff's American International Pictures.

    The next question to ask is who's going to run the studio with the merger completed? Current Grand Diamond executives Ron Perelman and Robert Rheme will now have to tangle with founder Roger Corman and Carolco chairman Mario Kassar for control of the studio.

    To facilitate the Carolco/Grand Diamond merger and with the blessing of Mirage Studios, the home video rights to the popular TV series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, held by Carolco's Family Home Entertainment division, have been sold to Buena Vista Home Entertainment as part of the compromise deal reached last year.

    Jim Henson's Hanna-Barbera subsidiary has entered licensing talks with Turner. Nickelodeon's shift towards original programming, which begins later this summer, has left HB with fewer time slots to rerun part of its classic library on Nick.

    Weekend Update Segment (June 29, 1991 episode of SNL)
  • @Roger Redux
    Michelle plays the Black Widow, reprising her role from The Winter Soldier.

    Excerpt from Weekend Update on the June 29, 1991 episode of Saturday Night Live.


    If you thought Bart Simpson was a nuisance to the denizens of Springfield, then you clearly have never watched the George Liquor Program on Sky Channel America. Bart's antics on The Simpsons are relatively tame compared to what awaits you on George Liquor. This past week, Jeep-DeLorean, State Farm Insurance, Southland Corporation (7-Eleven), Kresge Corporation (K-Mart), PepsiCo (Mountain Dew), Blockbuster Video and Ralston Purina have each pulled their advertising from George Liquor amid backlash from the most recent episode, which aired two months past the production deadline.

    On the first segment, Slab and Ernie torture a defenseless frog and set fire to a children's hospital. On that same segment, they steal Depend undergarments from "The Billionaire's Daughter," whom critics condemned as a blatant cheap shot at 8-year old Tiffany Disney, whose Asperger's Syndrome diagnosis made headlines two years ago. On the second segment, George Liquor, in an attempt to make sure Jimmy the Idiot Boy "stays straight," lures his non-verbal nephew to a basement where the Bad Catholic Girls; Robyn, Katie and Blair are shown tied up and showing signs of trauma. George tries to encourage Jimmy to do whatever he wants to the girls, but becomes exasperated with Jimmy just standing there doing nothing.

    Miramax chairman Harvey Weinstein released a statement in which he fully stood by Kricfalusi and that the other networks wouldn't have given him the creative freedom he enjoys at Sky. And once again, FART declined to comment on the content of the aforementioned George Liquor episode because they were too busy picking fights with Ice Cube.​

    Howard Ashman

    Because of the success New Line was enjoying with Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Mistress Masham's Repose would turn out to be Disney's first real box office defeat since The Black Cauldron in '85. In later years, Repose would gain a cult following on home video and cable. Repose would also be the second to last project that Howard Ashman would see to completion.

    When the premiere was held at Hollywood's El Capitan theatre, security was tightened, NOT because of the Gulf War, but because Barsi received a "love letter" from the creator of George Liquor during production.​

    Entertainment News For Mid-July 1991
  • After losing $35 million USD on The George Liquor Program, Miramax's parent company News Corp is putting the 44 acre Culver City backlot, former home of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, up for sale.

    Potential buyers of the historic lot where The Wizard of Oz and other classics films were produced:
    > Mario Kassar and Roger Corman of Carolco Pictures with help from Rochester, NY-based Eastman Kodak.
    > RKO Radio Pictures, currently based on Gower and Melrose, next door to Paramount.
    > Columbia Pictures, currently based at CBS's Radford Avenue facilities.
    > Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen, each of whom are interested in forming a studio together.
    > Jim Henson, Michael Eisner and Bernie Brillstein of The Jim Henson Company.
    > John Kluge, owner of New Line Cinema, currently based in Santa Monica.

    MGM vacated the facility after being sold to Turner Broadcasting in 1981.
    - The Los Angeles Times

    Jeffrey Katzenberg's abrupt resignation from Universal Studios triggers yet another round of studio musical chairs. Universal and Columbia both bring in experienced studio heads. RKO elected to go in a different direction. Rick McCallum may not ring a bell to most casual moviegoers, but the studio didn't seem to be in the mood for what they deemed a "retread."

    OUT: Jeffrey Katzenberg
    IN: George Lucas
