The New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Animated Movie Title Promises Chaos

Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird struck gold when they launched the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” comic book series back in the early 1980s. Focused on four genetically enhanced turtles — Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello, and Michelangelo — the series followed their adventures as they cleaned up the streets of New York City by fending off any and all evildoers. It should come as no surprise that these characters and their stories took off, hence why the “TMNT” brand is now a globally-known entertainment powerhouse that has crossed over into all kinds of media.
