Trivia

When seeing the design of Krang's android body as shown in the storyboards Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman thought it was absolutely dorky. Laird said it resembled a sick Pillsbury dough-boy and called Karl Aaronian at Playmates about it, he said that it shouldn't be a problem and that the actual animated android body would look different, as it is common practice for the storyboard artists to do quick roughs for the purposes of the storyboards. However, Aaronian called Eastman and Laird again and told them that Murakami/Wolf said that they were too far into the production of the fifth episode to change the look of the character. Years later Peter Laird said, in retrospect, this problem was a harbinger of problems to come. See more »

User Reviews

One of the greatest shows of all time.

As a kid, this was one of the greatest TV series of all time. Everything about it was fresh and original; nowadays, cartoons (and other TV shows) copy other shows. Leonardo was always my favorite because he was the mature, leadership-involved turtle. I miss it not being on the air. This show, the Transformers, G.I. Joe, and X-Men were the best cartoons.
