#22 Uncle Phil Is Shredder.

Yep, you read it right!  Shredder’s voice on the animated series should sound familiar because it’s actually Judge Phillip Banks. If you watched both the Fresh Prince & Ninja Turtles  and you never realized this, you are NOT alone!  Just now discovering that Uncle Phil is the diabolical Shredder is what I’d imagine finding out at 22 that you’ve been adopted your whole life is like. Bad comparison, huh? Yeah, finding out you’re adopted wouldn’t be half as riveting.

  7. What’s up with all the amazing references to Fresh Prince these days? P.Diddy in Get Him To The Greek: “You’re one shirt away from Carlton, mothaf***a!” and now this little gem of knowledge! Amazing…

  9. Also in regards to Shredder. Do you remember Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze Super Shredder is played by Kevin Nash, the wrestler.

  11. i didn’t realized this until i was watching the specials on the ninja turtles dvd. it has a little interview with him and i was like “holy shit! shredder IS uncle phil”

  12. Corey Feldman did the voice of Donatello in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III. Also, Sam Rockwell played Head Thug in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Throw in the Uncle Phil/Shredder connection and you’ve got your fair share of icebreakers so long as you’re surrounded by people your age or potentially younger.

  13. You also realize that Master Splinter’s voice from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is Kevin Clash who also does the voice of Elmo?!!!! Corey Feldman is the voice of Donatello in the first and third films?!!!!! Uncle Phil is the voice of Shredder in the 80′s/90′s iconic cartoon?!!!!! TMNT has enough weird realizations on the voicc/acting front that it could easy blow anyone of our minds!!!!

  14. I do believe he was also on Grey’s Anatomy where he was trying to decide the fate of his boyfriend the other week.

    Odd, I just learned this fact yesterday watching some so bad it’s good sci-fi flick when I saw a familiar face but couldn’t quite recall before IMDB came to the rescue and then scrolling through his credits… This guy has been in a shit-tonne of stuff. Still no idea who he is (I skip the bio and head straight to credits). Holy crap! The judge in Prince of Bel Air. Holy Batman & Robin, that was 1990-96?! Five seasons, really? Whoa, wait, 1990? I am old. Scrolls more… OMFG NO FN WAY TMNT!!!!!

    So, yeah, I feel ya. BTW I found your site because of the bitch in apt 23. krysten ritter is a raven-haired sex goddess. her roomie on the show was singing alanis which prompted a wikifest and then somehow i am here. nearly two years later.
