Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987)
The first atempt at adapting the
TMNT, this cartoon might have had characters with the names of the ones in the comics, but the tone of this show was completely different.
Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation
A sequel to the 1980s cartoon, this show as produced by Saban and brought the Turtles into live action (not unlike some of the movies we also had with the shellheads). It was also completely terrible.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003)
Ignoring everything that came before, this show rebooted the cartoon Turtles, trying for a tone that was a touch more mature (not that it would be all that hard, considering).
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012)
Nickelodeon picked up the rights to the
TMNT and immediately set about making their own show. And it was, surprisingly, truly amazing..
Rise of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
A reboot of the
TMNT, this second Nickelodeon series trades the CGI-infused style of the previous show for hand drawn, neon/candy colored oddity.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)
Ignoring the cartoon that started three years earlier, this live action film, a co-production between the Jim Henson Company and Golden Harvest, gave us a martial arts-infused, Turtle-fied action adventure.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze
While the previous film was a success, it was considered too dark, too violent. So this one trades in the action and serious tone for a more jokey, light affair. While it might have been successful in its goal, its hard to say the movie was as good.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
The live action Turtles return on the big screen for a third time, a time travel romp than is neither fun nor good.
Although rendered in CGI animation, this film is officially a fourth title in the longprunning cinema series. It's also a blast, from start to finish.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)
For years, Michael Bay attempted to make a
TMNT. Technically, he succeeded in his goal, but just maybe he shouldn't have.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
For some reason people went to see Michael Bay's first
TMNT movies, so they let him make a second one. It's awful. Thankfully, no one bothered with this flick so we were spared a third.
Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Adapted from the similarly named comics, this animated movie features a team up two unlikely teams, the Batman family and the TMNT, as they're forced to take on the combined forced of Ras Al Ghul and the Shredder. It is also an absolute, goofy delight.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem
A new version of the TMNT lore sees the four young teents having to team up with high schooler April to track a series of robberies to their source: mutants.
Classic Video Games
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1989)
Here we are with Konami's first attempt at bringing the mean green teens to the small screen via the NES. And, man... it's not good.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game
The Turtles return with a game that was much more suited to their characters and style. First crafted as an arcade game, the title eventually moved to the NES where it was absolutely beloved. We take a look at both editions.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan
The Turtles take a spin on smaller hardware and they have a five-stage adventure on the Game Boy. It does bring their action to the small gorm factor, but the game loses something in the translation.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Back from the Sewers
For their second outing on the Game Boy, the Turtles up the action and increae the difficulty, but it doesn't really make for an improved game.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project
The Arcade Game delighting fans, Konami quickly returned with a sequel providing more of what everyone wanted. But was this sequel really the best second-dip we could have gotten?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Manhattan Missions
Finding repeated success on the NES and Game Boy, Konami attempted to broaden the fanbase of
TMNT games with a PC release. Sadly, the game is not only a far cry from The Arcade Game but also far from enjoyable.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time
The Turtles are back in the arcades, this time with an upgraded adventures that sees our green heroes taking a gnarly adventure through time itself.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Radical Rescue
Trading in linear action for something a little different, this third Game Boy outing takes the Turtles on a
Metroidvania inspired adventure. But while it certainly tries for somthing new, the game doesn't quite bring it all together.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist
The Sega Genesis finally gets its own
Turtles game, but it's hard to say this game is anything fresh or new.
TMNT: Tournament Fighters
After conquering the beat 'em up genre, the Turtles the take on the tournament fighting genre with a trio of console releases.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge
Tribute Games brings out a perfect throwback continuation of the classic
TMNT games, almost like the series never left us at all. TMNT Fan Games
