Just for fun: revisiting the 1987 version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Animated lady-journo April O’Neal

When I was a little girl, I loved to play Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the playground. Unlike other ladies of cartoon-based make-believe, it was totally cool to “be” April, because, at least in this version of the game, April did sweet roundhouse kicks on Rocksteady and Bebop. Is this just how we played, or was that how the show really was? Just for fun, I’m going to re-watch some vintage TMNT, see how the show measures up to my very fond memories of it, and share my thoughts.

In case anyone wants to watch along, I’m building a playlist of the show on youtube.
