Eighties cartoon fans have been pretty lucky. We've seen some great cartoon remakes in the last 10 years from He-Man to GI Joe and now Thundercats. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series from 2003 is no exception. The re-imagined series is definitely one of the best cartoons of the last decade. Produced by 4Kids Entertainment and Mirage Studios (Peter Laird's company), the show takes the Turtles back to their comic roots for a new generation of fans. The show aired on Fox from 2003 until 2009 and saw the Turtles go through a number of different designs and storylines. I only managed to catch the first season and a couple of episodes from season 2, but what I saw was extremely entertaining. DVDs of the series are hard to come by now as they seem to be out-of-print. Season 2 (part 2) DVDs go for a pretty hefty price on Amazon. Nickelodeon recently acquired the rights to make a new animated series, which would be the third animated re-imagining of TMNT, and is slated to air sometime in 2012.
