Stop Ruining My Childhood!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Totinos Pizza Rolls

July 14, 2022

This week, we revisit the original cartoon version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

What began as a comic book in 1984, TMNT quickly launched into a series in 1986, and an empire was born. The franchise spawned 5 animated television series, 5 live-action films, 4 animated films, 4 comic book series, toys, video games, table top games, pinball machines, amusement park rides, and more!

Megan remembers her brother's obsession with the show and her enjoyment of the original toy line. Steve remembers dressing up like the teenage turtles while playing with his brothers.

We discover fun facts including some key differences between the US and UK versions, and we debate over whether or not Raphael is cool and rude or just rude. 

And Steve enjoys eating his nostalgic, childhood snack, Totino's Pizza Rolls... while Megan noshes on a small bite of gluten-free DiGiorno's. 

Did we love the show? Did the turtles drive us crazy? Would the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles approve of Totino's? Listen to find out!
