Splashing onto the comics scene in 1984 from creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, beginning as a parody comic of sorts, but later escalated into a full-on cultural phenomenon, due largely to the toys and animated series. While the comic continued on a much darker and serious path, the "cowabunga" version was a massive hit with kids, leading to the Turtles getting their first feature film. Directed by Steve Barron (CONEHEADS) and with animatronic suits designed by Jim Henson's Creature Shop, the film quickly cemented the Turtles into the mainstream, ushering in a cavalcade of sequels, cartoons, more toys and even a live musical tour. Take a look at their journey from the pages of Mirage comics to the big screen in our latest From Page to Screen!

The first movie is still the best movie adaptation of TMNT. To me, TMNT Was the 80s. Too bad it couldn't catch the lightning nowadays like it once did.

Love these tribute videos you guys put together.
I remember this being the second movie I ever saw in theatres behind Batman when I was 10 years old. I'm pretty sure my mouth was open, just being in awe seeing my favourite cartoon show come to life and being amazing.
