The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT or Ninja Turtles) are a team of four anthropomorphic turtles, who are trained by their sensei, Master Splinter, to become skilled ninja warriors. From their home in the sewers of Manhattan, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles battle petty criminals, evil megalomaniacs, and alien invaders, all while remaining isolated from society at large.
The TMNT originated in an American comic book published by Mirage Studios in 1984. The concept arose from a comical sketch by Kevin Eastman during a casual evening of brainstorming with his friend Peter Laird. Using money from a tax refund together with a loan from Eastman’s uncle, the young artists self-published a single-issue comic intended to parody four of the most popular comics of the early 1980s: Marvel Comics’ X-Men/The New Mutants, which featured teenage mutants, Daredevil, which featured ninja clans dueling for control of the New York City underworld, and also comics Cerebus and Ronin.
What started as a parody comic book launched the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into a world wide marketing phenomenon. Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello were found everywhere; children’s television shows, comics, toys, magazines, and more. Compiling and archiving information on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a heavy task, one that this website intends of taking on.
