Stephen Murphy is probably one of the more controversial TMNT writers there's been. If you haven't heard of him, he used to write a lot for Archie TMNT and for Tales of the TMNT volume 2. And his recurring themes are moral stories about environmentalism and social justice.
So what do I think? To be honest, it's kind of a mixed bag.
I'm originally from a low coral atoll in the Pacific, so global warming is a pretty damn important topic to me. And I think social justice is something people shouldn't forget about, as a matter of humane principle. In this respect, it's not a bad thing to write stories that convey these messages.
On the flip side, I can see how Murphy's morals-of-the-story can be handled...rather inelegantly. For one thing, he…Read more >

Sometimes I absolutely love Dragona15's TMNT fanart, and sometimes I'm like, "what the hell is this?" XD But recently this artist did an adorable minicomic featuring Raph and Slash, and I wanted to pass it on. :) This one is worksafe.

Recently, someone I knew invited a bunch of people to watch season 2 with him. He had been watching 2K12 for the first time, and it was all new to him. Being as fond of it as I am, I watched with him. But since it was all new to him, it also felt like I was watching it all for the first time, again, but through someone else's eyes.
I love this series. It captures a part of my imagination usually only reserved for TMNT comics. I love the characters, I love the settings, I love the subtlety, I love the story, I love all the little attention to every detail.
When he finished watching The Invasion, Part 2, I realized I was feeling really, really sad. I knew that, soon after season 3 started, most of what had interested me about the show had …Read more >
It's come to my attention recently that I've become a real eeyore on this wiki. My comments have become all the more negative and sniping. I'd really like that not to be the way things are. I've decided to practice more caution than usual in my commenting, and see what I can do about my eeyore problem. I can't deny it, though—recently has been very difficult for me as a TMNT fan, and it's chipped away at my composure and objectivity. As an editor, I'd really like to be setting a better example than this.Read more >
What they've done to his character since then is so very wrong. It's the character derailment hurt that keeps on hurting. I've been wanting to see more of the deep, subtle, vulnerable, tsundere, catty, sassy, bitingly sarcastic, playful, vain, prima donna, April-competing, Karai-catfighting, Donnie-girl-trouble-counseling, Donnie-saddorable-teasing, Mikey-hugging, Slash-angsting Raph we came to know and love. He was fun! He was interesting! How quickly he went from being the best-written version of Raphael to being one of the worst-written versions of Raphael.
I keep wishing his version in Amazing Adventures at least had more depth to him again, but AA doesn't seem to have done enough to break the rut its predecessor New Animated Adven…Read more >
Earlier in the 2K12 series, I became rather spoiled with fairly decent TMNT TV delivered in 26 episodes per year. Now that the show has long since become mindless shallow phony crap, it's been a weird sensation returning to an older status quo of waiting for new good TMNT stuff to come out at a snail's pace, waiting months or even years at a time for something new that piques my interest.
As much as I love TMNT comics, they're painfully slow to update. IDW TMNT and Amazing Adventures update once a month, and Amazing Adventures' main storylines are maybe 15 some-odd pages of update. MNT Gaiden updates whenever Tigerfog gets around to making a new page, which these days seems to mean one new chapter per year. And just like Genndy Tartakov…Read more >
I just created a new trailer (which uses the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer style),that should get you all caught up on the turtles' next battle in season 4, while recapping the dreaded events of "Annihilation Earth". Hope you enjoy! Click the link below to check it out!

This may be the most complicated chiptune I've ever done. I actually started it back in April, and wanted to publish it in April. (Yes, I so wanted to make that joke. XD) But everything conspired to prevent me from getting things done. But recently, I felt a burst of fresh motivation, and finally completed it today.
This is from the MegaDrive/Genesis version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters. Compared to the Super NES version, it was mechnically a mediocre fighting game. However, what it did have was a first class soundtrack by the now-retired Miki Higashino, better known for composing Salamander/Lifeforce and the Suikoden games. This was also one of the only (is it still the only?) TMNT game where April O'Neil is act…

In the mold of one of my old favorite sports shows, “Top 5 Reasons You Can’t Blame”, hosted by Brian Kenny, I like to follow that mold sometimes for entertainment topics, which I’m about to do here. Let me just say that when I was 5 years old, the third season finale (if you’ll call it that) of the original Ninja Turtles series aired. I can only imagine being a fly on the wall and seeing those kids around that age, as well as their parents, as they gathered on their couches that Sunday morning and watched the conclusion of the 2012 Ninja Turtle's Season 3 finale known intimately as “Annihilation Earth.”
I’m sure some of you may still question the validity of how and why they had to go up into space. Could Shredder have waited just a quarte…Read more >

As much as I like a good sci-fi or even fantasy product, I can't help but look back on some of the stuff I have watched and refer to either of those two genres as the "Hypocratic Genre(s)". They try so hard to establish another world or different characters or whatever and yet they try just as hard, if not harder, to emulate our own. Science fiction most of all likes to borrow from the fantasy genre to include things such as aliens, magic, supernatural beings and powers, even its technology because, for the most part at least, the devices are usually quite frankly impossible! There are a lot more hypocracies relevant to these genres (a lot of them revolving around the theme of unity) but I'll stick to the main point(s) and the case at hand…Read more >

The foot soldiers, sluggish and dumb,
always under the turtles thumb,
Shredder and Krang decided on a plan,
to serve turtle soup in a hot pan.
they'd upgrade a robot's "brain",
make those turtles go insane.
But they should've thought to stop, they were not ready,
as a power-surge was made by Bebop and Rocksteady.
Alpha One was his nome de crime,
he could crush those turtles into slime.
But he wasn't just smarter, he was FAR better,
like SHELL he'd listen to Krang and Shredder,
He bent the foot-bots to his will,
sent the old villains packing, footed them the bill.
The evil ninja foot bot ook over Channel Six,
had a plan that would send us to the dimension X sticks!
The turtles fought his armies, broke his machines and they won,

I finally found a copy of the 2014 TMNT movie at my local library and saw it for free. That's the only way I was ever going to see it! I know I should be reveiwing "The Weird World of Wyrm" but gimme a break, I've got a lot going on.
Anywho, I was expecting the worst and my expectations were met...well, later. For one, there was no way that I could've either went into a movie theatre or just sat down on my living room couch and walked away from this movie feeling satisfied with what I had just seen. I knew this movie was doomed the moment the list of the names of the people involved in the making of this movie were revealed. I knew it had as much chance as Billy Cundiff's kick did against New England. I knew it didn't have a chance!

Talk about a long hiatus... Sorry I haven't been able to stay in contact but I have been on this wiki from time to time; checking out the lastest series.
Like all of you, I'm still recovering from the Season 3 finale and moving on with Season 4. I am of course talking about the 2012 series which has hit me in the inside with the recent episodes.
I have also came up with an idea. This is just like the Big House and the Arena in the Turtles in Space arc from the 2003 series. Here's the pitch:
"Leonardo has been separated from his brothers and friends and finds himself in space prison by the Triceratons. Inside, he meets and befriends a fellow alien prisoner named Aura as his brothers and his friends find someway to save the Fea…Read more >
Work, social life, MLB playoffs, illness, death in the family, and that explains why I haven't written anything in a while. Well, that and the fact that there hasn't been a lot to write about with regards to these first two episodes. After game-changers like "Annihilation Earth"--which, despite a couple of hiccups in getting to it's resolution, was a masterpiece, no doubt about it, so let's get that out of the way--establishment is the precedence for the following season premiere. Excellent comic animation, a great full-time premiere by David Tennan's Fugitoid who I have a lot of expectations for, and a time-travel format which can actually be pretty good depending on direction. That's one thing I can go under the microscope and really exa…Read more >
So, I've noticed new images of Wyrm, Professor Honeycutt (and whatever's afflicting him), and my most anticipated character this season, Sal Commander, are up! I don't know where they came from but I'm highly interested in where! As my new user page photo says, I can't wait for this character largely because of his voice actor, Keith David! I know we've got David Tennant already; we'll hear from Ron Perlman, Zelda Williams, and Peter Stormare later; and of course, Pat Fraley returning as Kraang in that highly anticipated 80's crossover; but Keith David is one of my favorite voice actors of all time and I can't wait to hear what he has to bring to the table during the space arc. I'll be looking forward to it!Read more >
If anyone's ever watched "The Leftovers" or even seen the opening credits to the episodes of Season 1, it's so reminiscent of the Season 3 finale. Once I saw Splinter, Rockwell & Leatherhead, Slash, Gecko, Muckman, and Tiger Claw ascending, I was instantly reminded of that sequence and the music. Now, whenever I see the ending of that episode, I start to play the music to "The Leftovers" Season 1 opening titles, blaringly loud mind you, when the black hole first appears over New York and it never gets old! I really wish I knew how to do AMVs and all that so I could match certain parts to "Annihilation Earth" so they match the credits of that show, but it's still pretty cool.

I've always wanted to start an entertainment/TMNT blog of my own, but now I think it's a little too late to join the Season 3 finale and Season 4 prediction party so I'll have to skip on that unless someone would be interested. Pffft! Yeah right!
My goal with my own blog is to do more than just review and/or talk about something. Anyone can do that! All they would have to do is say "I liked it" or "I don't like it" and give some lackadaisical (?) reason which doesn't really say anything smart or insightful...and that's the key word I hope to live up to: insight! Others just focus on surface material. I look to go beyond the surface, try to get inside the artist's head, see what they were going for, and whether the project as such was a succ…Read more >

With season 4 of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles almost underway (October 25th, 2015), what are some things that you think will happen in the season. We know that the turtles will meet new characters like Mona Lisa, Armaggon, and Lord Dregg, but what things do you think will happen between these characters? Who will help them? Who will try and take them down!? Here the official descriptions for the season's first two episodes. Read them, then share all your thoughts and speculations in the comment section below!

This is something I've been waffling over for a while... while we have always allowed fan materials here, there have been times such as when fan art has been posted without knowledge/consent/credit of their creators, which has ticked off more than a few people. There also is kind of a rapid influx of fan characters and so forth... actually that comes and goes. At one point I had to make a rule or two about the fan story/characters because a few people were just wantonly adding things that they themselves were supposedly "writing" even though there's no way one person could be possibly doing all of that at once. And the less said about the fan characters whose creators tried to cram them into the canon, the better.
Then there's the unintende…Read more >
Ok. I know I've been on about this for a while. But I recently just thought, if Donnie can't do anything on Earth, maybe when the turtles meet the Utroms (Peaceful Kraang.) maybe they have a cure if there's not a cure on Earth.Read more >
If you watched the 6 minute clip avalible for Dinosuars seen in Sewers, you'd notice that Zog the Triceraton hates the Mutanimals, and Leo mentions something about their defeat. So, Let's take the time now to speculate about the possible things that could happen to the super mutant group!
Does Zog single handedly finish them off?
Are they ambushed?
Does Shredder or Kraang have a say in this?

Let's be honest - it was funny AND nasty episode. I've almost puked because of Mega Shredder, but doesn't matter. Let's talk about episode itself.
First - Bebop and Rocksteady are GENIUSES! No, really, their idea about creating super-mutant wasn't stupid, but the result was. How do Anton know that Shredder Clones loves that sardines or whatever it is? And Ivan's laugh was really hilarious. Actually, I'm giving to this duo all my 5 stars for minigun, "turtle borsch" mention by Steranko, nice moves while fighting Mikey by Zeck, and... Wait... Did Rocksteady really punched Bebop in the face? Well, whatever, let's move to next point.
Second - Mega Shredder. Created by Shredder Clones spliced together in mutagen, this freak is REALLY HUGE! How do…Read more >

Hello welcome to my blog!Read more >
Hello, Turtles fans, this is Concernedalien11780. I first became interested in the Ninja Turles when the 2003 show was being advertised all over the place when I was six. As I got older and learned how to operate a computer and use the Internet, I learned of their origins as a tounge-in-cheek parody of gritty Frank MIller comics, then as an iconic Saturday morning cartoon, then as cheesy 90s Muppet-ish movies. My favorite incarnation was the 2007 film because, while probably darker than people might want something called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to be, I think it had the proper balance between light and dark and had a just good enough plot to make it still enjoyable today. This is the main reason why it bothers me that Viacom and Nicke…Read more >

(MAY ME SPOILERS HERE IF THEY WERE ACTUALLY TRUE)
I have heard rumors and other theories from many people over the past few weeks, so I just want to add them up.
Here's one of them:
-The 2003 series episodes: "Turtles in Space", will be adapted to the 2012 Nickelodeon series.
- The fugitoid will come into this and helps the Turtles get back home to Earth.
- The Triceratons will again try to rid the Turtles of the Universe for one reason or another.
- The war between the Federation and the Triceraton Republic will be going on.
Lets face it. A lot of the Mutants in the TMNT series are cool. But what would be even cooler is becoming one. Although it would suck to be a Mutant like Mutagen Man or Muck Man. It would be cool to be a strong Mutant like Rocksteady or a Mutant with a special power. Like for example if I were mutated I would want to become a cat mutant with special claws that can cut through things. How about you? What kind of mutant would you want to be?Read more >
