Just watched the first six episodes from the first season. Despite being often cheesy it is a pretty good show...

Loved the show so much in elementary school. Dontello and Leanardo were the coolest. The 3 movies were good too.

I hated the really hard NES game though.

And the Shredder was played by the father from Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Haha,

The silly original cartoon show from 1987 is often mocked by everyone and I would agree. However, From the age of 4 til 12 I worshipped that show. My dad had some of the more mature comics on his vast bookshelf of weird and wonderful books and I absolutely ate it up.

Watched one episode on youtube the other day and I can definitely see how easy to please I was at that age. Those cartoons were sheeeeeeeit.

I love the series it think it one crucial standing point for several things. one it teaches me how to make character have personality that is not string of the same joke. They show that they are a team and show that each one is COMPETENT something that needs to studied again thoroughly for both writers and the fans of all kinds.

They show an adaption of how to lighten up which I feel that fan base needs to do. It was overwhelmingly goofy but that is the fun of it. I would say the same for dragonball.
