Random Thoughts On... Classic TMNT 1987

Here's a strange and terrifying thought for you folks; in all my adult years, I have not revisited the classic TMNT series from the 80s.

I remember my fondness for the old show back when I was a little youngster and I'd be lying if I said that show didn't plant the seeds for my appreciation and fondness for the franchise as a whole and in its multiple formats. TMNT is a thing that is evergreen in my interests; I've got a few of the video games, I've got the old movies, some DVDs from the 2003 revival... I might even have some of the comics laying around somewhere. Hell, I even saw that newest Turtles film and actually got some level of enjoyment out of it.

And yet, for some reason or another, I've yet to track down a DVD set of the old cartoon and give it a gander.

I suppose there is a kernel of reasoning behind this; every time I revisit an old cartoon or property that I had a fondness for, it usually turns out to be utter crap and I often question how I could enjoy something that was poorly conceived. I used to dig all those Nintendo cartoons like the various Super Mario cartoons or those Captain N cartoons, but rewatching them these days made me question how I could've enjoyed something so bad.

Is there an underlying fear that if I revisit THAT series, I'd find something to hate about it?

Maybe... someday... maybe...
