Questions Regarding Coming Out of Their Shells
Okay. So I wasn't old enough at the time Coming Out of Their Shells was a big deal. While I still find some of it cringeworthy, I think it has a little bit of charm. I don't hate that it exists. Yet, I'm confused. Everywhere I go, I can't seem to find the answers to a few questions I have about the tour.

First off, did anyone on here see the tour when the turtles had their original costume designs? When I mean "original," I'm referring to the ones seen in "The Making of Coming Out of Their Shells." Also, when I'm referring to those costumes, I mean the two different ones.

The costumes where they are wearing those white sneakers involves the biggest question I have - Are they wearing white socks or white leg warmers? I have been studying some of the clips, and they come off like huge puffy 1980s socks. I see no break where the green skin may show. But I can't tell, because the quality of the video isn't great.

Also, the one performance that is on the video, was that a real live performance, or was that a rehearsal? I heard kids cheering, but I saw no crowds.

I never saw it live on stage.

Rock-band Turtles just... wasn't my thing.

Know anyone here who would know and help answer these questions?

Note: Yes. This is my signature. I thought it looked cute.

Shoot, I went to one of the shows at Six Flags but I can't remember the details related to your question. Sorry. :ohwell:

The funny thing is that people compare this to the comics, cartoons and movies.

Remember this was during the years when the Turtles were everywhere. Putting them together as a pop group should be compared to their appearances at the Oprah Winfrey Show or the New York City Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Wasn't there someone among us who supposedly created a Turtle suit based on the designs of this show? Maybe they might have done some deeper digging on this?

I suggest checking out this interview with Bob Bejan, producer, lyricist, composer and the voice of Michelangelo for the tour. It's been a while since I listened so I don't remember if they address your questions, but nevertheless it's worth a listen.
