Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Show generally

Character mistake: Throughout the entire series, the Turtles are referred to, by others and by themselves, as amphibians. But turtles are reptiles, not amphibians.

Turtle Tracks - S1-E1

Audio problem: When Donatello tries to stop April from leaving the sewers after she accuses them of committing the robberies, he is speaking in Raphael's voice. (00:10:35)

Hot-Rodding Teenagers from Dimension X - S1-E4

Other mistake: General Traag's weather weapon causes a blizzard across the city, yet when the Turtles and the Neutrinos come up to the surface after the blizzard had been occurring for a while, none of the cars parked on the street, including the Neutrinos' two flying convertibles, are covered in snow. The interior of their cars should have been full of snow.

Question: In this show and in the 90's movies, the Turtles absolutely love pizza. Though this was not hit on in the 00's show. Was their love of pizza created for the 80's show, or did they have that in the original comics as well?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: The Turtles' pizza obsession was not in the original comics, which were far more adult in the violence and language they contained. Peter Laird, one of the comic's creators was critical of this aspect on his blog in 2012, saying if he had control over the 80s cartoon's creative direction, the Turtles "would not have been so ridiculously obsessed with pizza".

Hot-Rodding Teenagers from Dimension X - S1-E4

Question: Back in the day when I was a little kid, I used to own a handful of VHS copies of some episodes of this series, and something that always stuck out with me was that on the covers of some, the turtle's weapons were changed in color. I don't remember for sure which ones, but I remember one example that I believe was on the cover for Hot Rodding Teenagers, Leonardo's swords were solid red. Bright red. Like they were made of plastic or something and looked like toys. Why did they do that for the cover? Was it really such an issue to show metal weapons on a kid's cartoon that was full of them anyways?

Chosen answer: No, that's just the kind of mistake that gets made when you contract a foreign company completely unfamiliar with the product in question to produce your marketing materials as cheaply as possibly.
