Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Remember in the early 80's when this cartoon first came out?

I predicted it would never make it. Their name was too long, I said. Little kids won't be able to remember the name, much less pronounce it.

Well, I was certainly wrong and now they've made a comeback.

They've recycled every other cartoon character so why not this one.

My sons just loved those crazy reptiles. They had to have Halloween costumes of their favorite TMNT character and guess who had to make them. That's right, me. We still have them in the attic; Michaelangelo and Leonardo.

There's nothing brings out the little kid in a person than to see a remake of their favorite star on the big screen.

Transformers are back too.

I'm waiting for the Smurfs to crawl out of the mothballs and join the ranks. It's just a matter of time. We've already had the Care Bears and Strawberry Shortcake.

Who was your favorite 80's character?

My son loved TMNT! I stepped on more of these darn turtles and their weapons then I care to remember...I probably still have the scars...grin...

My favorite show was the Thunder Cats...I watched it just about as often as Josh watched those darn turtles...

I was glad I had a boy, so I could watch boy cartoons...I wasn't much on Strawberry Shortcake and Barbie...grin..

Yeah, I stepped on a few myself. Legos can be pretty painful too.
