Guido Rossetti : Epicness at its peak

Blush : This was my milk and honey as a kid

LGK : My childhood condensed into a minute-long video right here.

Abhijit Kashyap : I remember running back from school in the evenings of the mid-90s. These American cartoon shows would always arrive in India a few years later. I remember myself instantly branding them as TMNT (before I had realized that it was how this franchise was referred to as) on my own since I had this thing for acronyms. I wouldn't allow my older brother near the television (for him to watch his older, more serious Australian and American family drama shows) till I had my fill of TMNT. My favourite scene was always Shredder's underwear being pulled from under his pants over his head (although never understood how that could be possible before Spandex got invented :-)).School is over now, the family has been long gone yet, the memories remain. Nostalgia indeed!

Reginald Rivera : Who went in here after that Raphael pizza throw reference in Injustice 2?

CrowL1inG : Самый любимый мультфильм детства, господи как же это было ахуенно!

Lachlan Reynan : this is one of the best into for a late 80s cartoon show

Paulo Evangelista : To all of those watching the new TMNT movie, just so you know, this is the real TMNT right here, not that Michael Bay crap.

Easy Grin : A Friday night was so Epic all week no kids programs or cartoons then Friday eve and Saturday afternoon you'd get the most epic stuff Gijoe M.A.S.K Thundercats Visionairys Dungeon and Dragons transformers you name it Dinoriders ECT

JustAPrayer : Sure, it wasn't as close to the comics as the 2003 version, but this show is still amazing for just being its own fun thing. And this is still my favorite of all the tv show intros.

TheGr8Shogun : This brought tears to my eyes.

Truth Seeker Reformist : Best 80s cartoon

SULLEN MGTOW : @ the 00:7-00:9 mark, Michelangelo looks so ill as he ice-grills the camera. His look alone let's you know that they as a crew would kick yo ass. The teenage mutant ninja turtles was truly a great cartoon. I enjoyed watching it as a kid.

Trusty Balls : lyrics?

Blush : Still better than anything considered music today

Jason X : There are so many things that could be said about the intro to the original TMNT cartoon. The part that sticks out the most to me, though, even after all these years, is just how it looks so much better than the actual show it's associated with. That's not to say that the show itself looked terrible, it certainly didn't. The intro looked a LOT better, though, which always seemed a little odd to me.

Seth LaFrance : I have something that parodizes the song

Trusty Balls : they forgot the blue and purple dude failed show

Jai Abadiano : No slight

Daniel Kok : cowabunga dude!
