Storyline

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 creators of this show are good friends with creators of the short lived Toxic Crusaders. A kid friendly cartoon version of the R rated Troma films The Toxic Avenger. Many times discussions where made to crossover the TMNT and Toxic Crusaders but as history shows, it never went into action. However the character of Trash-Head was the TMNT nod to their pals creating the Toxic Avengers at the time. See more »

Goofs

In many of the earlier episodes, a specific turtle's line would come out of the wrong character's mouth (i.e., Leonardo speaking with Raphael's voice). See more »

A childhood favourite that still holds up today
3 December 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I am still very fond of Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles. It was a huge favourite of mine when I was little, and re-visiting it again it is still is. yes perhaps not the truest to the comics but on its own terms it is amazing. The animation is amazingly detailed, with the colours smooth and the character designs on target. The music is wonderful, the theme tune is very memorable and the incidental music compliments perfectly, while the writing is humorous, intelligent and smart and the story lines interesting and coherent. The characters are still memorable, all four turtles are immensely likable with unique personalities, Splinter is both wise and kind and April is beautiful and not vapid. I also love Shredder, he is funny and menacing and overall just a really interesting lead villain. And the voice acting from all involved is top notch especially from Barry Gordon and James Avery. In conclusion, wonderful show. On a side note the 2003 series was decent enough, but lacked the charm and heart here in this series. 10/10 Bethany Cox
