The Smurfs are little blue creatures that live in mushroom houses in a forest inhabited mainly by their own kind. The smurfs average daily routine is attempting to avoid Gargomel, an evil man who wants to kill our little blue friends.
This show tells the adventures of four turtles who were transformed into humanoids by a strange ooze and were trained as ninja by a human martial arts master, Hamato Yoshi, who was changed into a humanoid rat, Splinter, by the same substance. Together with the intrepid reporter, April O'Neil, they fight against the threats against the world, like Shredder and Krang. Written by

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 »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! The original animated series!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series is one of My favorites of the 1980s animated programs. When it was on I watched it as much as I could! It has very good animation, cool characters, some humor, great music, and awesome action. The characters are really neat. All of the the Turtles are great, April is so good, Splinter is so spiritual, and Shredder is excellent. I loved how all of the characters have great personalities. In My opinion I don't think there will be a cartoon like this again because it was one of a kind! If you like the Turtles movies but never saw the series and are able to watch it on television or buy it on tapes then do so because the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon is a classic!
