* '''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 The first cartoon]]''' (1987-1996), with Fred Wolf at the helm: Resemblances to its source material are mostly superficial. The first cartoon featuring the turtles proved even more popular than the comics (and it definitely remains the most well-known TMNT incarnation among the general public), thanks to the [[AdaptationDistillation distillation]][=/=]{{flanderization}} of the four turtles to easily identifiable character types; the addition of villains Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady; the promotion of the Shredder from one-shot baddie to ArchEnemy; gleeful breaking of the fourth wall; the addition of food addiction (pizza) and a catch phrase ("Cowabunga," although there were others), and a general comedic bent. The series ended in 1996, after ten seasons, 194 episodes, and one retool which attempted to make the series more dramatic.

* AlternateContinuity: ''TurtlesForever'' revealed all TMNT media exist in its own universe. The 2012 cartoon followed this up by having the Turtles seeing the 1987 animation as an alternate universe!

* '''''Series/NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation''''' (1997-1998): A live-action Saturday morning show by Creator/SabanEntertainment (guys behind ''Franchise/PowerRangers''), aired on FoxKids in 1998 shortly after the animated series ended. It lasted only one season before going belly-up. The new series added a new character, Venus de Milo, a female turtle with knowledge of the art of Shinobi (and playing the foil to the scientifically-minded Donatello). Many fans were [[FanonDiscontinuity antagonistic]] to the series, and Peter Laird was even [[BerserkButton more]] antagonistic to Venus. The characters crossed over into an episode of ''PowerRangersInSpace''.

*** Michelangelo is usually the comic relief, but his approach to the role varies: In the Mirage Comics he's a laid-back NiceGuy, in the 1987 cartoon he's a surfer dude, in the film series he's a MotorMouth jokester, in the 2003 Cartoon he's a prankster and a {{Gadfly}}, and in the 2012 Cartoon he's an outlandish {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
*** Raphael is always the team rebel, but again his method of rebelling varies from incarnation to incarnation: In the Mirage comics he's a violent and sometimes unstable berserker, in the 1987 cartoon he's a wisecracking slacker, in the film series he's a brooding loner with a huge temper, in the 2003 cartoon he's gruff and standoffich and in the 2012 Cartoon he's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold with a HairTriggerTemper.

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: The characters are reinterpreted in every retelling, especially Michelangelo and Raphael. They typically fit the same archetype, but express it in different ways.
** All were extremely flanderized in the 1987 series, except for Leonardo who was only mildly flanderized. Donatello went from being intellectual to being a GadgeteerGenius, Michelangelo went from being mostly laidback to being a surfer dude obsessed with pizza, but most egregiously, Raphael went from being dark and violent to being snarky and constantly breaking the fourth wall.
** Michelangelo: Mirage Comics - laidback, 1987 Cartoon - surfer dude, Film Series - jokester, 2003 Cartoon - prankster, 2012 Cartoon - {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
** Raphael: Mirage Comics - violent, 1987 Cartoon - wise cracker, Film - brooding, 2003 Cartoon - gruff, 2012 Cartoon - snappish.
