Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words: "With great power, comes great responsibility."

It happened on my birthday. Today's my birthday.
On this day:
At 14th December of 1987, the original cartoon series of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" broadcasts its first episode, "Turtle Tracks" in first run syndication. The show helped launch the characters into mainstream popularity and became one of the most popular animated series in television history. Breakfast cereal, plush toys, and all manner of products featuring the characters appeared on the market during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Action figures were top-sellers around the world. In 1990, the cartoon series was being shown daily on more than 125 television stations.

After a very popular comic series, the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" exploded into a kids TV toy craze with their hit cartoon, which was one of the most popular and well-known cartoons of the late 80's and early 90's. Turtles toys were flying off the shelves at Christmas time at this period. The cartoon was so popular it helped the turtles reach the silver screen in 1990, in a live action medium that did really well at the cinema box office.

This show became one of the most popular and original animated shows of all time ever since it's debut in 1987, it actually all began as an independent comic book in 1984 that became an instant cult favorite.

The story deals with four human-like anthropomorphic mutated turtles (Leonardo, Raphael, Michaelangelo & Donatello) who were once ordinary turtles turned to what they are thanks to chemicals especially their once human master named Splinter who are trained in the art of ninjitsu as they befriend a beautiful news reporter named April O'Neil to fight crime and battle the forces of the evil Shredder especially munch down pizza.

The Krang, Shredder, Bebop & Rocksteady villains were successful creations, and it shows, because they appeared in most of the 193 episodes, until they were surprisingly dropped as main villains by the '95 season, and didn't appear at all in the '95 season, but appeared in a few episodes in the '96 Season.

A season was made every year, between 1987-1996. The number of episodes in each season varied drastically. From 5 episodes in one year, to 39 episodes in another. So, there was real hard work for the makers to get episodes finished in time, plus there was many different writers who undertook the writing for 1 whole episode.

As before mentioned, the Shredder, Krang, Bebop & Rocksteady villains were dropped by Season 95. At this time, the turtles were given a makeover to perhaps renew interest in the franchise, along with a new regular villain, an alien called " Lord Dregg". The episodes were darker than what we were used to, and are also called the "Red Sky" episodes (94-96 Seasons).

After the cartoon ended in 1996, the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" cartoon, on-going for 9 years, was at least, one of the world's longest running cartoons ever...until "The Simpsons" beat it.
