    It was always a toss-up between Don and Raph for me. I've got a weakness for the nerdy-scientific types (IE: Egon is my favorite Ghostbuster, ect), so Don was numero uno for a long time.

   Then I came to appreciate Raph's attitude and couldn't deny the coolness of his close-quartered fighting style with his Sai.

Egon is like the Chuck Norris of the scientific community.....

And as far as artists go, I would like Michaelangelo most out of all of the turtles. But yeah, as an eight-year-old, the color red, mixed with Raph's attitude probably were the reasons why I liked Raph the most of all the turtles.

I was pretty obsessed with the Ninja Turtles for a time too.  I was convinced I was going to marry Michaelangelo one day.  I was 16 at the time...no, I'm only kidding.  I was a bit younger  ;)  I liked him and Don the best.  Mikey was always easy going, care-free and fun. Don had all the cool toys.  I had pet turtles named Mikey and Don for a long time and action figures and books and wanted to take Taekwondo because it's the closest thing to ninja I knew about but my mom said that it was for boys [sob].  Lucky bastards!

Anyway, I was more a cartoon fan than a movie fan although I remember loving the first movie.  I think I was about the age where I would soon be getting out of the turtle phase when it came out but I do remember watching the movie a lot and having the whole thing memorized.  I still haven't seen 3 but I heard it's pretty good.

I have tons of VHS episodes of the old cartoon and I got nostalgic a while back and popped them in and all the lines from the show popped back in my head. Funny how we remember stuff like that but what I had for breakfast today takes me a good 10 minutes to think about.  I also realized that the cartoons are still pretty good, which is surprising. Most of the stuff I liked as a kid doesn't stand the test of time.  Now that I'm older, I think I get Raph's sarcastic comments more than I did as a kid.  He's pretty cool. 

Leo is a wanker though.  I always thought they should lock him up somewhere and leave him, but I think April had the hots for him.

I dont mean to get too much into this but when i was younger i went through cancer and had to get radiation treatments (i was 4 at the time) and something that got me through it was thinking i was turning into a Ninja Turtle. I was bald and my parents had found some orange ribbons that they tied on me just like a turtle and i would vanquish the evil Shredder whenever i could. So no, no sarcasim at all with these dudes. I love these guys!  Now who's up for some pizza?

Talk about killing any attempt I might have made at anti-turtle snark.

As for feeling old, don't worry; I do. I have two step-grandkids. That pretty much did it.

I'm trying to remember if there's anything from my childhood that I'm that invested in that I can see past issues of quality, but I can't think of a single thing. Then again, apart from some music, there's very few things that have held my interest for more than a few years at a time.

Raph was #1, sarcastic and rude.

Raphael was the coolest, (those "forks" are called sai in case anyone was wondering, and his are comically oversized) but my favorite was Donatello. He was a nerd (like me) and sarcastic (like me).

Poor Leonardo suffers from Leader Syndrome. For some reason leader characters in cartoons are only ever given leader personalities and lines. Let's go! Look out! We have to stop them! And so forth. Leonardo, Optimus Prime, Duke, Liono, etc. It happens in comics, too. Cyclops is the perfect example. Even characters who can be interesting in their own books end up boring when they lead teams. Superman in Justice league, Captain America in Avengers, and Robin in Teen Titans become dull, one-dimensional characters. That's the curse of Leader Syndrome.

Liono was a complete dick.  He never listened to his team-mates, always disregarded the awesome Panthero and never bitch-slapped Snarf.  If I was stuck on a jungle planet with Snarf, he would've made several good steaks and a nice welcome mat to my cave.

I always call Voyager's Neelix "Space Snarf," and my buddy just pointed out "Isn't Snarf already from space?" Trek Snarf doesn't have the same ring to it.

And if the pimply kid at the theater says "You can't bing that in the theater. But we have pizza at the concession stand," you hit the kid with the nunckucks in your back pocket and tell him, "That round toast with cheese on it is not pizza, dude! Cowabunga!"

lol no worries you could make any anti-turtle slurs that you want and my feelings wont be hurt.

LOL i never thought of that.  I knew that Neelix looked like something else i had seen before and now finally it all makes sense. That just made my day

Mikey was my favorite.

I've always liked nunchaku, and Mikey was a goofy knock-off!
He's the best.

Yeah...nunchaku kick ass.  I'm gonna go swing by Cool Weapons Surplus and get me a nunchuck gun.*



* Spelling is intentional.  It's called "poetic liscense," you fascist pigs.

But why not just call it a gunchuck.  While awesome, the gunchuck is no match for the almighty swordchuck.  You see, the briliance is not in the sword OR the chuck, but the synthesis of the two.

Just found this thread, so anyway I was a huge turtles fan as a kid had the blankets, toys, videos, ect. I had the 'turtles album' but don't really remember anything about it.

The turtles Nintendo games deserve special mention for their awesome-ness (even to you turtle haters ;) ).

My favorite turtle was Mike, no reason I guess, maybe he was just funny.

I was "too old" for the 3 movie, but out of curiosity I saw it eventually and didn't like it. This movie looks kinda cool, but I will definitely wait for video.

As for the whole turtle fad coming back, I think its pretty cool, at a garage sale two years ago two kids bought my turtles skate board and I was happy to see it go to good use :)
