The Complete Season of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (1987) Synopsis
Turtle Power! Get ready for a FULL EPISODE MARATHON featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, straight out of the ‘80s! Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo are the world’s most fearsome fighting team, and alongside Master Splinter, they’re here to stop the evil Shredder and protect the world from evil.
Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s underground comic creation hit the big time, and the popular zeitgeist, when the children’s cartoon made its debut in 1987. The show follows the adventures of four turtles and a rat, who were splashed with a radioactive substance that mutated the animals into anthropomorphic heroes. The rat, Splinter, was a martial arts master who adopted and trained the four turtles – whom he named Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello – in the ways of ninjitsu, while hiding their existence from the public at large by living in the sewer system of New York City.
Next to the Turtles themselves, one of the biggest contributions to American culture that the animated show gifted fans was one of the most memorable theme songs of all time. It’s hard to watch an episode without Chuck Lorre’s iconic theme song ringing in your head for hours afterwards and now you can experience it again and again.
After you finish binging the first season, there is even more turtle action to be found in theaters. The new release, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, will relaunch the franchise for another generation. There have been five live-action feature films Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Secret of the Ooze, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, along with another animated feature, TMNT, in 2007. It is safe to say that the mutated heroes from NYC are a firm part of pop culture and are here to stay.
The newest incarnation of America’s favorite turtles is produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The dynamic duo have established a pattern of developing successful comic book adaptations with hits on their resume such as Invincible and The Boys. The hits have proved that they can make superhero content that is geared towards adults and now with this weekend’s release they stand to broaden their appeal.
