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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

The mutagen ooze was depicted slightly differently in this cartoon; rather than causing its victims to increase in size, it caused them to transform into a hybrid of their original species and whatever creature they have most recently been in contact with. The mutagen ooze also had many color variations through the series, the mutagen seen in Season 1 that mutated the turtles, splinter, and Bebop and Rocksteady had a pinkish glowing color. However starting in Season 3 green mutagen was introduced, which became the most common color in the series. It recanted, and even shown in the 2nd intro sequence, that the mutagen that mutated the turtles was green. Later a rainbow variant of the green mutagen was shown. See more »

Goofs

The turtles are often referred to in the series as amphibians even though they are reptiles. See more »

Heroes in a half shell TURTLE POWER!

One of the best show I ever watched.

Growing up as a kid in the UK I had to put up with the show being renamed "Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles" aswell as the theme song being changed to say "Hero" Instead of "Ninja" the start of "P.C." in the UK.

What's wrong with the word Ninja I ask you?

Ninja's are cool and the turtles proved this.

Of course Cam Clarke (Leonardo) now does the voice of Prince Adam / He Man in the new He Man series, and who could forget Will Smith's Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince, James Avery as The Shredder.

A Classic cartoon which should be brought out on DVD.
