''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'' (or TMNT) began as a comic book by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, who formed the idea from a napkin drawing one of them made while eating at a pizzeria. The first story began as a tale in the vein of Creator/FrankMiller's ''ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}'', with the four titular ninja battling the Shredder to avenge the murder of Master Splinter's master, Hamato Yoshi. After a fierce battle, they successfully kill him. A surprise hit (often attributed to the unique name), the series continued with applying a FantasyKitchenSink motif: with time travel, robots, and aliens introduced within the first ten issues. Despite their inauspicious beginnings, the series became so popular that an action figure deal was struck, and an animated series was created to accompany the toyline. The show became one of the most popular animated series of all time, which in turn led to movies and every type of merchandise under the sun, turning TMNT into one of the biggest {{cash cow franchise}}s of the mid-eighties/early nineties.

There was also a [[TabletopGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesAndOtherStrangeness role playing game book]] released in 1985 to 2000 based off the original Mirage comics, and a [[Pinball/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles pinball machine]] made by Creator/DataEast in 1991. The franchise is also the subject of a documentary film titled ''Turtle Power'', fan-made but distributed by Paramount.
