Mutated subterranean reptiles need love too.
Now that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been exposed to the world aboveground (people! danger! pizza!), their life in the New York City sewers seems rather lacking in comparison. Mikey (Greg Cipes) in particular, is feeling the need to find other people in his life who don't pick on him and think he's an idiot. In short, he needs a friend.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back! But can their turtle power win over a new generation without alienating older fans?
Nickelodeon's animated revamp of the popular franchise premieres Saturday morning (11/10c) and will have to live up to the previous iterations that include a handful of cartoon series and movies all based on the original comic books about four anthropomorphic turtle brothers whose love of fighting crime is only rivaled by their craving for pizza.
Cowabunga! The v are back and ready to kick some shell.
"It's the first Turtles incarnation where they actually use their weapons besides just throwing them into the wall. I mean, they are ninjas." Turtles executive producer Ciro Nieli told the Television Critics Association during the fall previews Friday. That's not to say that the new Nickelodeon adaptation of the popular comic books will be too violent for its young audience. "The Turtles are always acting on the need of a greater good. They're always playing the hero role.. . We have no qualms about what we're making is a kids show. It's not that violent."
