This is my review of the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show. It started in 1987. It's a really popular show.
The first TMNT show is about the 4 turtles (Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo) saving the world from evil. Shredder and Krang teamed up to take over the world so it's up to the turtles to stop them.
The plot of the show may seem repetitive, but that's pretty typical for animated shows that came out in the 1980s. The plot may not be the most complex and interesting thing ever, but it works for a 1980s animated show. The best storyline in the show is not the turtles. The villains (Shredder and Krang) are the ones who make the show exciting.
Leonardo, Raphael, and Donatello are okay characters. My favorite turtle is Michelangelo. He's the funniest turtle. Shredder is my favorite character in the TMNT franchise. He's such a cool and fun villain. Krang is also really cool and fun. Special mention goes to Dregg who was played by the best actor ever, Tony Jay.
The animation looks good. It has aged well. Shredder and the Foots' costumes look different in this show than in any other turtles shows. Either way Shredder and the Foot look cool.
The show's theme is pretty awesome. It's really cool and catchy. Plus the lyrics are good, especially the part about Shredder.
The first turtles show is the most entertaining of the turtles' show. The show isn't as cool as the 2003 show, but it is more entertaining so if you like fun shows then I recommend this show.
