* AdaptationNameChange: In the adaptation of "Return of the Shredder" Vernon's last name is revealed to be Prindle, while in the cartoon it was Fenwick.



** Several characters that appeared in the comic (such as Scumbug, Mondo Gecko, Wingnut and Screwloose) made their way into the Fred Wolf cartoon the comic was based on, but had completely different looks, origins, and alignments (e.g. Wingnut and Screwloose were one-shot villains from the planet Flagenon in the cartoon, when here they were allies of the Turtles from the planet Huana, which was destroyed by Krang).

Added DiffLines:

* DemotedToExtra: Any major character featured or introduced in the cartoon had this happen to them. Irma and Vernon only appear in the first two issues and are never seen again, while Burne Thompson lasts up to issue 3 before he likewise vanishes. Baxter only shows up during issues 2-4, then makes once more appearance during a flashback in the "Future Shark Trilogy" arc a few years later. Shredder, Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady were all regulars at first, but ended up getting written out after the book's second year. While Shredder would at least remain a minor recurring villain afterward, the other three returned for just one more three-part story before never being seen again. The Rat King meanwhile only shows up for a few pages in issue 11.

* CerebusSyndrome: The series went from having a tone similar to the cartoon to becoming second only to the Mirage comics in seriousness. It remains the darkest thing Archie has ever published. [[TropesAreTools However]], this comic was easier to come across than the Mirage series, and being edgier than the cartoon while staying lighthearted at times attracted its own following.

The book had an environmentalist tone, with {{green aesop}}s galore. It also introduced young readers to political topics such as [[TheApartheidEra Apartheid]], the Chinese occupation of Tibet, the UsefulNotes/GulfWar, and even showing the more unpleasant aspects of Christopher Columbus' "discovery" of the Western Hemisphere and the Hiroshima/Nagasaki bombings. While the quality of the actual stories was variable and debatable, several of the concepts introduced here proved quite popular with fans of the franchise, some of whom continue to hope that elements from the book will be introduced in further incarnations.

Initially based on the massively popular [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 first cartoon]], the [[ArchieComics Archie]]-published ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures'' eventually became one of the strangest incarnations of the franchise, and one that fans still remember with some fondness.
