TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA WHAAAAAT?
Most hardcore fans will know everything there is to know about the crimefighting quartet, but in case you’ve been living under a
shell rock and have no idea what TMNT actually is, here’s a brief guide to the most turtle-tastic show in the universe:
What’s it all about?: The iconic cartoon follows the adventures of four anthropomorphic turtle brothers (Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michaelangelo) as they battle against their arch nemesis Shredder and other harbingers of evil whilst trying to remain hidden from the world. Aided by their sensei Splinter, The Turtles are highly trained in the art of ninjutsu (Hence the ninja part of their name), which they use to keep the streets of New York City safe from harm. Named after a group of Renaissance artists, the brothers reside in the sewers beneath the city and when they’re not kicking ass and taking names, they can usually be found eating pizza or hanging out with their human allies April O’Neil and Casey Jones.
So, it’s a cartoon, right?: Oh no my friend, it’s so much more than that! Since its first incarnation as a comic book back in 1984, The Turtles franchise has taken on many different guises. From TV series and books to video games and blockbuster movies, the dynamic quartet have sustained their epic popularity for over 30 years, making them one of the most enduringly iconic cartoons of all time. Not bad for a bunch of “…wretched reptiles…” huh? Plus, the original TV series has one of the catchiest theme tunes of all time. For real, one listen and you’ll be singing it for years.
So if you’ve not been keeping up with the TMNT universe, now’s the time to start!
