Personal

I became aware of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the late 1980s because of the animated TV series and first two video games that were released, which I adored. In the TV series, Michelangelo was always my favorite turtle because he was the funniest, but I also appreciated Donatello for being so smart. I continued to be a fan of the franchise into the early 1990s as the films were released and more video games were made, but I never owned any TMNT merchandise beyond the games. By my mid-teens, I stopped caring about the series and I haven't made any attempt to experience any of the later incarnations.
