The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fan Community
Welcome to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles aka TMNT community. I'm your co-host, myuutsu. TMNT has always been a piece of someone's childhood, including mine. With the arrival of the new movie, more fans are flocking to the fandom, and we see it fit to make a community for discussions, fanworks, rants, whatever you so desire. :)
And the name means...? Kame is the Japanese word for "turtle." I think you can figure out the rest. ;)
TMNT was hatched by fathers Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. The story follows four turtles mutated by a mysterious substance, trained by a mutated rat by the name of Splinter. Given the names of four great Renaissance artists, Splinter trained each boy the art of ninjutsu. Now teenagers, these four use their skills as vigilantes protecting their home of New York.
What started out as a hero-esque comic book soon grew in popularity. Soon to follow was a cartoon, made in 1987 and concluding 1996. The atmosphere and personalities of both the turtles and other characters was toned down from the comic's original gritty nature for a more younger audience.
Following hot on the heels of the cartoon came three seperate live action movies. 1990's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, 1991's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, 1993's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III and the recent 2007 flick simply titled TMNT.
A shortly lived live action TMNT series, Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation, was aired on TV from 1997 to 1998.
A new TMNT cartoon, which follows the comic book universe more closely, was created in 2003. It is still running to this day, under a new season known as Fast Forward, which features the turtles doing what they always do, but in the distant future.
There are a handful more forms of TMNT media. From various comic books, a live action concert to a two episode anime OVA.

shi→ Ranting or heavy discussions are allowed, however we do ask you keep them under cuts, with warnings and also, an open mind. Because we're sure some people are going to disagree with you.
