Where Will You Stand This Comic-Con?

Pledge Your Allegiance to The Shell or The Foot!

San Diego, Calif. - July 11, 2012 - To celebrate the upcoming Sept. 29 launch of the all-new, CG-animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Nickelodeon is launching an immersive, experiential campaign at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2012 - 'Turtles vs. Foot', recruiting fans to fight for good alongside the Turtles or join the forces of evil with the Foot Clan.

Beginning Thursday, July 12, Turtles and Foot Clan street teams will be in downtown San Diego and at San Diego International Airport distributing recruitment propaganda encouraging fans to choose a side. . Throughout the city, wild postings, guerrilla chalk art on sidewalks and outdoor video projections will drive fans to a mobile website, m.turtlesvsfoot.com, where they can also choose their side and participate in missions to achieve real-time rewards and receive a phone call from either Splinter or Shredder.

Fans can also visit the 'Turtles vs. Foot'-branded truck in Petco Park's parking lot Thursday, July 12 - Saturday, July 14, between 10am -7pm, to receive their physical badge of allegiance and either a Foot Clan or Turtles Trucker hat (while supplies last). If spotted by the street teams wearing a hat anytime throughout the weekend, fans qualify for a chance to win a Turtle Prize Pack jam-packed with collectibles and an autographed piece of classic memorabilia from co-creator of the original TMNT series, Kevin Eastman.

Nickelodeon teamed up with digital creative agency, Tribal DDB Worldwide, to develop the 'Turtles vs. Foot' concept and bring the campaign to life.

Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles begins as the turtles emerge from their hidden lair in the sewers for the very first time, ready to confront the wondrous and hostile world of New York City and face enemies more dangerous and pizza more delicious than anything they could have imagined. Funnier and with more Ninjutsu than ever before, the show will explore the companionship of four teenage brothers learning to rely on themselves and one another as they unravel the mystery of their existence and grow to become the heroes in a half-shell that they are destined to be. The premiere episode was executive produced by Ciro Nieli, Joshua Sternin & Jeff Ventimilia and Peter Hastings.

Considered one of the most popular kids' television programs of the 1980s, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a classic, global property created in 1984 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. It first debuted as a successful comic book series and then became a hit animated TV show, a live-action television series and later spawned four blockbuster theatrical releases. The property also has translated into a significant consumer products business-with DVDs, video games, toys and more--that has generated billions of dollars at retail.
