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>

Excellent Show!
4 April 2006 | by jereydevil88See all my reviews

Great show I fondly look back on it and Ghostbusters as the Davey Crockett's of the eighties babies generation. My favorite character was Leonardo mostly due to him being blue (my favorite color at the time) and our names both begin with "L".

The new TMNT2003 show doesn't do it justice, Also its neat to see the toys go for thousands on eBay. It got me wishing that as a kid I hadn't melted my Shredder and April in the microwave.

For anyone who wants a trip down memory lane you should get the first season of this show and the old SNES or Arcade game to play.

Sometime ago I found all three of the movies bundled for $7 at Sam's club which I recently found time to watch (excellent flicks for those interested).

Be sure to watch the first episode the turtles or you may never really understand how bad the back-story is leading up to the series.
