Watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an animated cartoon series that follows the adventures of four crime fighters who happen to be humanoid turtles that are extremely talented in martial arts. The turtles are named Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael. The backstory surrounding the heroes in a half shell is that four baby turtles were accidentally dropped into the sewers and were exposed to some high-powered nuclear goo that morphed them into half-human, half-turtles with super strength. They were taking in as babies by a wise sewer rat named Splinter who cared for the turtles as they grew and trained them in ninjutsu.

The idea for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was hatched in a series of comic books. The comic book series became quite popular with children, and the the animated series was created and released to coincide with the marketing of a popular line of action figures.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles program was created and aired first as a five-part miniseries before being produced as a weekly Saturday morning cartoon. The show was then offered for syndication to air five episodes a week.

The animated show would usually focus around a battle with a villain attempting to harm the city. The Turtles were guided through their adventures by Splinter, who also acts as their sensei. The villains that they would do battle with varied each episode but some of their biggest rivals included Shredder, a large disgraced ninja who trained with Splinter but was exiled by his sensei for his violent temper and erratic behavior. Shredder took his commands from Krang, a super-intelligent disembodied brain who is Shredder's commander. Shredder had two bumbling henchman that he would often send into battle, Beebop and Rocksteady. They were very strong but clumsy and were used as a comic relief. April O'Neil is a television reporter who uncovers the story of the turtles and helps them out in their battles.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles News

Will Arnett Joins The New Teenage Mutant 'Ninja Turtles'

News from the upcoming Michael-Bay produced "Ninja Turtles” (as in, Teenage Mutant) re-make keeps causing heads to shake. Can news that comedian Will Arnett will be joining the cast make things any better? The “30 Rock” alum has signed on for the film, but his character is being kept a “secret” for now. He will not, however, be playing Casey… which leaves very few main characters left as an option. The actors playing Splinter and Shredder have not been announced yet, so they’re out too.

Megan Fox to Star in 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Remake

Apparently, Michael Bay and Megan Fox smoothed over their rough history, as it was announced on Bay’s blog that Megan Fox will be playing the role of April O’Neil in the upcoming remake of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (currently titled “Ninja Turtles”). Fox’s dislike of Bay and his work methods were made very well-known. She even alluded the director to be almost like Hitler. In an interview, she stated: “He's like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation.

Michael Bay's 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Reboot Stopped

Eat s**t and like the taste of it, Michael Bay. You may not abuse my generation's beloved "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" the way you disfigured "Transformers" after all. As reported by IGN this afternoon, Paramount Pictures has shut down pre-production on Bay's "TMNT" retarded, rehashed and reimagined reboot. At the very least, that shoves the release date violently over a cliff from December 2013 to circa May 2014. As IGN credits to The Hollywood Reporter, Bay and his Platinum Dunes company are running into some script disagreements with Paramount.
