My Favourite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

With the impending murder of the franchise by Michael Bay, I thought I'd run through the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in order of my liking of them... Allons-y!

Now, this is how they should look!!!
Mmmm... Pizza!

What the hell are these??? Why do they have lips???

For those who don't know about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, actually, if you're not the kind of person to know about TMNTs, how on earth did you come about my blog??? Anyway, it doesn't matter, I appreciate your presence...  The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are a team of four anthropomorphic turtles who live in the sewers of New York City. Trained by an anthropomorphic rat (Splinter) in the art of Ninjutsu, they battle crime whilst struggling to fit in with the human world.

Now... Onto the list...

04 - Leonardo (Leo)

The leader of the team, and effectively Splinter's right hand man, Leo is also the oldest of the turtles. He is, by far, the most serious of the team, barely making wise cracks, instead concentrating on leading his brothers. His leadership skills are unmatched by the other three and his orders are almost always followed without question.
Leo's weapon of choice is two Ninjato.

03 - Michelangelo (Mikey)

Often portrayed as the youngest of the brothers, Mickey is the 'party dude' of the group. Due to his nature, he doesn't usually have much input into the groups plans, however, he is just as active as his brothers in the execution of them and, he is just as skilled a warrior as them. He has a love of pizza that rivals that of my own! He is also the turtle most associated with the expression 'cowabunga'.
Mikey's weapon of choice is two Nunchaku.

02 - Donatello (Donnie)

Seen as second in command, Donnie is also portrayed as a genius. Responsible for creating all of the teams vehicles and equipment, he has come up with such things as, the Turtle Com, the Turtle Van and, the Turtle Blimp. Despite Leo being the leader of the team, Donnie is often tasked with coming up with plans and creating solutions to problems.
Donnie's weapon of choice is a Bo Staff.

01 - Raphael (Raph)

Raph is the sarcastic, wise guy of the group, well, from the 80's cartoon onwards (in the comics he was angry). Unlike Mikey's silly humour, Raph's humour is sarcastic and witty, usually resulting in Mikey becoming the butt of Raph's jokes. Raph's pessimistic nature and sarcastic remarks, often serve as a contrast to Leo's do-gooder nature.
Raph's weapon of choice is twin Sai.

So there you have it, the TMNTs in my order of preference... Now, I think I shall go weep about the thought of Bay's version of them.

Who is your favourite turtle? What's your thoughts on Bay's impending retelling? Why the hell does Bay's turtles have lips? Seriously, most turtles are devoid of lips! Anyway, leave me your thoughts below.

Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you enjoyed yourself.
