About Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Originally a comic book series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) were crime fighting turtles named after four Renaissance artists. Trained in ninjitsu, (which was extremely popular in the 80’s – I myself had a sweet collection of ninja stars) they ate pizza, fought crime, and lived in isolation in the sewers of New York City.

They all had the chemistry of a successful boy band. Leonardo was the leader, Michelangelo the comic relief, Donatello (Donny) the smart one, and Raphael the bad boy (with a Brooklyn accent). Looking back on it, I actually think they may have inspired New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) as well as the War on Terror.
