"We are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We strike hard and fade into the night."
Ghost here! Thanks for joining me today for yet another
As obsessive of a fan as I am of Doctor Who now, it's nothing compared to the Ninja Turtle fanboy I was when I was a child. In truth, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was the first thing I became consciously aware that I was a fan of. Sure I enjoyed Winnie the Pooh, Inspector Gadget, Alf, and various movies... nothing was quite as amazing as the Ninja Turtles. In the early 90's Ninja Turtles were an onslaught on people's consciousness and wallets and I was stuck right in the middle of it all. I had mountains of toys, several VHS tapes, Turtles clothing and bed sheets, I even had my parents paint my room green!
So if you happen to be disappointed in the latest Ninja Turtles movies but would like to see some Turtles action...well then watch the 1990's live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as it is truly superior in most ways. However, if you want to see something a bit different while still being good then you should check out today's entry, Turtles Forever. Turtles Forever is the 25th anniversary celebration of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It is a 2009 animated movie which features the 2003 incarnation of the Turtles teaming up with the 1987 incarnation of the Turtles involving various characters and technology from both shows... as well as a third set of turtles. Let's take a closer look at Turtles Forever shall we?
What's Good About It?

The Perfect Median
I only had one positive and two negatives because I felt as though this needed it's own section.
I'm glad this was made and I'm glad that I watched it. While they did get the '87 Turtles wrong it was still a good representation of all things Turtle. If this would have been the last thing ever made for the Ninja Turtles, I would have been find with it as it went out with one heck of a bang. Fortunately it seems that the Turtles are going to keep going strong on into the future. If you are interested in the Ninja Turtles at all and want to see something pretty amazing then you should definitely check this bad boy out!
This is Ghost, fading into the darkness.
