Heroes In A Half Shell

partyAt James' birthday party tonight, he received all four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from his grandmother. James loves the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but today's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles aren't quite the same as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I recall from the late 80s.

My Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were drawn a little softer, a little friendlier. James' Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seem quite angry and far more intimidating. Even Splinter seems a little scarier.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I was such a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan, my friend Joe and I attending the sneak preview of the 1990 movie. Keep in mind, in 1990 I was fifteen years old, but I remember loving that flick. It was funny, thrilling and it even featured Elias Koteas as Casey Jones.

I see a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is coming soon. It, of course, features James' TMNT, and not the Turtles I remember so fondly. Here's the teaser trailer.

Here is James and his new toys.
