This is the one discussion that I’ve probably had a million times while growing up. Every Ninja Turtle lover had their favorite Turtle.
A person’s favorite Turtle has a lot to do with that person’s personality. I remember me and a friend having a conversation like the one in the video some years ago. We figured out we were both down with Donatello.
Everyone knows the basic character traits of all the turtles: The stoic, battle-ready Leonardo. The goofy, fun-loving Michelangelo. The inventive, reliable Donatello. The sarcastic, individualist Raphael.
You had to have just grown up in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle culture to really understand what the whole craze was about. It had everything to do with their personalities, which most likely reflected you and your own group of friends.
