Box Turtle

What’s With the Turtleboy Name?

It all began back in 1995 when founder, Douglas Martin, was driving down a road and saw a turtle crossing the street. He quickly found a place to park the car and jumped out. The other people in the car had no idea what was going on as Doug ran from the car down the road he was driving on.

Doug sprinted down the road as fast as someone in a pair of sandals could. He was about two feet away from the turtle when all of a sudden, a beat-up old 1980 something boat of a car was heading straight for the poor little turtle slowly crossing the road.

Unfortunately, this story does not have a happy ending for the turtle, but the legend of “Fred” lives on through Turtleboy Productions. Doug will never forget that fateful day when he tried to save a slowly moving turtle from his impending destiny.
