Considered one of the most popular kids’ television programs of the 1980s, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a classic, global property created in 1984 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. It first debuted as a successful comic book series before becoming a hit animated TV show, a live-action television series, and later spawning numerous blockbuster theatrical releases. The property is a global consumer products powerhouse, winning in every category that has hit shelves to date — toys, apparel, video games, DVDs and more — and generating billions of dollars at retail. Since 2012, Nickelodeon has re-imagined this wildly popular franchise with two new animated television series: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
