It was a time of neon clothing and scrunchies.
Eat your heart out, Leonardo.
Obviously it hurts even more knowing your mom threw them all away.
Let's be honest, you probably still want that Snoopy Sno-Cone Maker.
How many of these pretty obscure characters from the 1987 TMNT cartoon can you name? If you can do well on this, you should be incredibly proud of yourself.
For every famous artist there's a mutated turtle out there.
From the wonderful world of NES (Nintendo Entertainment System for you... young people).
This is the most important question of your life.
And yes, of course, this is also something many '80s girls can understand too.
It was the time of neon EVERYTHING.

“I'm a fat ballerina who takes scalps and slits throats!”
"RIHphael. (She was Raphael.)
"Failures in a half-shell. Turtle power!"
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Bay's latest film as a producer, opened with $65 million, and a sequel is already underway. There is no use in trying; Bay is unbeatable.
Do you love being a turtle? You won't after this new movie. WARNING: Possible spoilers ahead!
Watch in horror as two people who were born in '89 and '92 and somehow managed to attain adulthood encounter '80s action cartoons for the first time. How do you not know who He-Man is???
A very unfortunate Australian gaffe. UPDATE: Paramount Pictures Australia has deleted the tweet.
Clearly the TMNT toy line's designers were like, "Fuck it, some kid will buy it."
The greatest city in the world deserves the greatest heroes. Check out Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows in theaters everywhere on June 3.
Ranked from difficult to "horrifying unforgiving hell" difficult.
Plus the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back and there's a trailer, Taco Bell breakfast is here, and 16 dresses that are NEVER appropriate wedding-wear.
Dude, it was...awesome.
Because nothing made you want to eat processed foods more than a cartoon face.
Come on, admit it: You still want that Talkboy!
Go Ninja, go ninja GO!
Spend too much time in front of a TV as a kid in the UK? It's time to reap the rewards.
This list is definitive proof that there was no better decade for toys than the ‘80s. (Note: toy lines are listed in no particular order.)
So we're not going with April's iconic yellow jumpsuit, then. NOT COOL, Michael Bay. Not cool at all.
Chalk this victory up to our collective nostalgic outrage. Since Bay was announced as the producer for the TMNT reboot, their origin story has received most of the press.
Or making it awesome, depending on your irony threshold. Still no ugly Chanukah sweaters.
No word on if they'll come with LEGO pizza. LEGO teams up with Nickelodeon to launch these in January 2013.
You won't believe what they're replacing it with.
What happened to my childhood? The new series on Nickelodeon looks like an 8th grader's animation project.
From Batcat to Superlizard, they're all here to save the day! Using their special superpowers such as "the adorable glance of death" and "fluff-rays," these creatures will rid the earth of evil -- one vacuum cleaner at a time!
This is, yet another, outrage! Apparently marketing folks don't think the words "teenage" and "mutant" will sell this movie. We learned nothing from "John Carter".
Michael Bay must be stopped. For the good our collective childhoods.
Ruining my childhood, one movie at a time, Michael Bay now has his hands on our favorite pizza-eating Ninja Turtles. And this time, he is going to make them aliens. Aliens.
Cue nostalgia. With over 4,000 individual pictures, 60 hand drawn images, and 3 months of tedious work we recreated the 1987 TMNT cartoon introduction in stop motion.
Is Nick McKaig some sort of nostalgia wizard? Yes. The answer is yes.
Look away, children of the 90s! Of course, this suddenly explains the lack of anatomical correctness in certain mutants.
Pizza-lovin', party-dude Michelangelo was more my jam at his age, but I can respect a kid who can appreciate the leader of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Cowabunga, dude.
You know what's the best thing to draw? Turtles. You know what's better than the best thing to draw? Ninja Turtles. (via and special thanks to The Uniblogger)
