TV Shows

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987)
    • The first atempt at adapting the TMNT, this cartoon might have had characters with the names of the ones in the comics, but the tone of this show was completely different.
  • Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation
    • A sequel to the 1980s cartoon, this show as produced by Saban and brought the Turtles into live action (not unlike some of the movies we also had with the shellheads). It was also completely terrible.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003)
    • Ignoring everything that came before, this show rebooted the cartoon Turtles, trying for a tone that was a touch more mature (not that it would be all that hard, considering).
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (2012)
    • Nickelodeon picked up the rights to the TMNT and immediately set about making their own show. And it was, surprisingly, truly amazing..
  • Rise of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    • A reboot of the TMNT, this second Nickelodeon series trades the CGI-infused style of the previous show for hand drawn, neon/candy colored oddity.

Movies

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)
    • Ignoring the cartoon that started three years earlier, this live action film, a co-production between the Jim Henson Company and Golden Harvest, gave us a martial arts-infused, Turtle-fied action adventure.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze
    • While the previous film was a success, it was considered too dark, too violent. So this one trades in the action and serious tone for a more jokey, light affair. While it might have been successful in its goal, its hard to say the movie was as good.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Turtles in Time
    • The live action Turtles return on the big screen for a third time, a time travel romp than is neither fun nor good.
  • TMNT (2009)
    • Although rendered in CGI animation, this film is officially a fourth title in the longprunning cinema series. It's also a blast, from start to finish.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)
    • For years, Michael Bay attempted to make a TMNT. Technically, he succeeded in his goal, but just maybe he shouldn't have.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
    • For some reason people went to see Michael Bay's first TMNT movies, so they let him make a second one. It's awful. Thankfully, no one bothered with this flick so we were spared a third.
  • Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    • Adapted from the similarly named comics, this animated movie features a team up two unlikely teams, the Batman family and the TMNT, as they're forced to take on the combined forced of Ras Al Ghul and the Shredder. It is also an absolute, goofy delight.
