It also made a totally badass toy.

Also, TMNT have a TMNTpedia website. I guess everything is making a pedia page. One thing that I read on the main page that I never knew was “…that the voice of The Shredder in the original cartoon series was that of James Avery, more commonly known for his role of “Uncle Phil” in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?” Crazy…
