Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiered as a comic book in May, 1984, at a comic book convention in USA. Today after 29 years the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have evolved over the years to be still one of the most popular fiction action series amongst kids. From comic books, to video games, to films and TV series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have always stirred excitement and inspired kiddie ninja wannabes.
Since Nickelodeon acquired the global rights to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles they are moving forward on development on a new CGI-animated TMNT television series consisting of at least 26 half-hour episodes.
The plot is that when ninjutsu master Hamato Yoshi and his four pet turtles are exposed to mutagen (a chemical from another world that transforms anyone who comes in contact with it into mutant creatures), they undergo major physical transformations: Hamato Yoshi becomes a humanoid rat under the name of Splinter and the turtles become human/turtle hybrids. Splinter retreats to the New York City sewers, where he raises the four turtles as his sons and imparts to them his knowledge of ninjutsu.
After venturing to the surface for the first time, the teenage Turtles discover an alien race called the Kraang is planning to take over New York City with their plans involving the same mutagen that created the Ninja Turtles. The Turtles befriend April O’Neil when she and her father Kirby have been abducted by the Kraang alongside some other captive scientists. While Kirby remains a prisoner of the Kraang, April becomes an ally of the Turtles as they help her to find out where the Kraang have taken her father. The Turtles also learn that the Shredder is leading the Foot Clan into tracking down Splinter and his sons to put an end to their clan.
So let’s introduce the 4 awesome turtles:
Michelangelo: Mikey is definitely the funnest of all the ninjas. He loves video games, skateboarding, pranking the other guys & ofcourse, pizza! He fights the villains with his Kusarigama (nunchucks) an art he’s an expert at.
Leonardo: Leo always seems to get bullied by his three rowdy brothers but he does manage to keep them in line… usually. Master Splinter picked him to lead because Leo eats, sleeps, and breathes ninjutsu. Not that his brothers aren’t good. He’s just better. He fights with his Niten Ryu, because two katana are better than one.
Donatello: Donnie is the brains of this outfit, so he invents gadgets, weapons and awesome vehicles to keep his brothers & himself safe. He can also hack into computersystems, crack security codes and break through firewalls. The only thing he has trouble with is to get their best friend April to notice him. He fights with his Naginata, a six foot “bo” staff made with a blade.
Raphael: If there’s a brawl, count Rapha in. Someone who doesn’t believe in planning prefers to fight first and ask questions later. If any shellbrains tried to mess with him and his brothers, they won’t know what hit them! He fights with his sharp Sai.
