80's Corner


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were introduced in the 1980's as a cartoon ... then as toys ... then as video games, and finally as movies. The show features four turtles that were involved in some sort of mutating nuclear incident (I think) ... and became seasoned karate fighters that save the world, thanks to the leadership of a rat named "Splinter."

The turtles all are named after famous artists, and all have unique ... ummm ... charisma? My little brother (well, at the time, he was my little brother ... he's taller than me now!) loved them, and I took him to a couple of movies in the theatres ... so, even though they were a tad goofy, they'll always hold a special place in my heart.

I always wanted to like them, but I just didn't. Maybe because I'm a girl? Nah. I was a tomboy. Just didn't get into it.

My little brother was obsessed with them. He had all the little toys and I think maybe even a van or some sort.
