TMNT

When I was a kid, I loved the Turtles. I read the magazines, watched the cartoon, had the action figures, went to see the movies, and was a member of the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles Fanclub (the name of the TV show was changed here in the UK due to the word Ninja being considered too violent for kids….right.

Well you’re wrong. All of you. Even you, George, and you don’t even know it… (more…)
