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 logo used for this series was created by Playmates toys and is different than the one used in Eastman and Laird's Mirage comics. A logo loosely similar to this was used for Mirage comics from 1992-1995, but did not feature green turtles skinned "TURTLES" letters. See more »

Goofs

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

Quotes

Raphael: [all the Turtles are tied up]
[to Donatello]
Raphael: C'mon, figure a way out of this.
Donatello: Are you kidding? Only the most skilled Ninja Master could get out these knots!
[Leonardo frees himself, then starts to cut Donatello loose]
Donatello: Oh, hi, Leonardo.

Splinter taught them to be Ninja teens.

He's a radical rat

Leonardo leads, Donatello does machines.

And that's a fact jack!

Raphael is cool but crude

Gimme a break.

Michaelangelo is a party dude.

PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
