Default Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987 TV series)

I realized there is no thread for the classic cartoon, so I made one. I recently started to watch some of the episodes, when I was a kid I always liked it, but I never followed the series in order. So to start the discussion, I found that perhaps the writers were fans of Watchmen.

For example, in "Enter The Fly", when Baxter is in the disintegration chamber with the fly, he looks like Dr. Manhattan getting blasted in the chamber:

I thought it was a little farfetched at first, but then I saw something more.

And in "Splinter No More", the monster that comes out of the dimensional portal is very similar to Ozymandias alien:

And that's that. Discuss.


A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
