Cowabunga! There’s Nothing Quite Like Classic TMNT
As a kid, I decked out my bed room in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Some say that’s a bit weird for a girl but I’ve never been afraid of being weird. The action figures littered my room. I had those neat digital watches in every color.
Some of my earliest memories are of the cartoon that my eyes were always glued on. I liked to wear the masks over my eyes, and each day was a different color. Picking a favorite character has always been hard for me, and TMNT is not any different. What turtle is your favorite?
I found the comics once I was old enough to start discovering things on my own. I had a blast with so many new stories to explore and experience. When the live action movie came out a sharp thrill ran through me. How awesome is it that Raph said “damn”?
Yeah, the things I remember tend to be pretty random. That’s the fun part though, because so many things relating to TMNT can give me a flash of nostalgia.
Now that I’ve got my own kid I’m so ready to share the excitement with him. He’s just a baby, but you’ve got to start them young. He has a few TMNT onesies, one even says COWABUNGA on the butt. What is so great about all these classic cartoons becoming cool is that it means there is more media coming out of it. I’ve got to get those DVDs.
Nothing beats the classic toys that I had as a kid though. The artwork honestly is best in the original and no one can change my mind.
Every once in a while the theme song for the old cartoon plays from one source or another. Then suddenly, I’m 5 years old again.
