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

Out of the four turtles Raphael is the most radically different from his original comic book counterpart. In the comics, Raphael was the most violent and aggressive turtle of the group and had a tendency to go berserk in battle. In this show, he was more of a laid back, sarcastic, smart alec, other iterations depict him as being closer to his comic counterpart but dial back his violent tendencies. See more »
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 »

In 1991, CBS aired the show during their Saturday Morning line-up, with all new episodes and a new opening was added too. Along with the package came 'Turtle Tips', a portion of the show that gave useful information. See more »
I watched this almost all the time when I was a kid. Seeing the Foot Soldiers, Krang, Shredder, and everyone else was great. I can still picture it all. Too bad that it isn't airing anymore. At least videos are made, so you can enjoy the turtles all over again.
