I=shocked. And I'm not so shocked that Uncle Phil actually is Shredder, I'm shocked that I didn't put two and two together over all of these years. I think I've literally seen EVERY episode of each of these franchises and I never made the connection. To say I would never make it as Columbo would be an understatement. I guess I was pretty young when TMNT was actually still a cartoon. I was too busy trying to find Waldo and blowing out cartridges on my Genesis to see what was right in front of my eyes/ears. Blame it on youthful ignorance I suppose. Either way it is somewhat startling to discover that Uncle Phil was not only a successful judge in Bel-Air, but still found time to moonlight as one of the great villains of my generation. How he never forgot to change out of that costume before he threw Jazzy Jeff off the front porch is beyond me.
Also, Uncle Phil is kind of wrapped up in the Shredder character right? Talking about layers of acting between himself and Krang? Pump your brakes a tad Uncle Phil, you weren't casting for Bill the Butcher here, it was a friekin cartoon.
PS: It's going to get dark tonight. The Cubs won't win a World Series. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is on somewhere no matter what time of day. All are statements of fact.
Double: Being a member of the Foot Clan or the Putty Patrol has to be one of the worst gigs out there. Just getting your ass kicked time after time. Like I think I'd rather work for TSA body searching people before I'd be a low level henchman. It got to the point where just once I wanted to see the Putty Patrol take down the Power Rangers 14 minutes into the show. Yeah I watched Power Rangers. You show me someone who didn't and I show you a liar.
