* TheyJustDidntCare and OffModel: The animation in some mid-series episodes looks downright ''HIDEOUS'' (especially almost half of season 4).

* {{Narm}}: During the early seasons, they weren't in the territory of FamiylFriendlyFirearms yet (being in syndication), but it seems that somewhere along the line communications got muddled, and as a result, you'd hear a line like "the bullets aren't stopping them", while the guns being fired are shooting lasers!

* GrowingTheBeard: Season Three, arguably, when compared to the somewhat lackluster Season Two. It wasn't ''consistently'' good, but contains the most fan favourites.

Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyThink: When most people think of a morally ambiguous ninja girl with a tempestuous and sometimes romantic relationship with Leonardo, Karai always comes to mind and not Lotus Blossom from this show. Lotus, in fact, predates Karai, having been introduced in 1989 whereas Karai only came about in 1992.

* TearJerker: Though much more lighthearted than the 2003 version this show still has its moments of this. One of the most memorable is the episode "Turtles, Turtles Everywhere." Shredder and Krang reprogram a network of robotic garbage trucks and order them to capture "the turtles." With no knowledge of the TMNT, the trucks start rounding up every turtle in the city, and eventually what is said to be the last surviving member of an endangered sea turtle species, just as she was about to lay her eggs. One of the reasons it's such a great episode is that, unique among shows in TheEighties, it's actually a GreenAesop ''done right.'' Unlike ''CaptainPlanet'' villains and much more similar to real-world polluters, Shredder and Krang aren't actually intending to damage the environment as its own end; they're just greedy and don't care if it's a side-effect. At the end of the episode, they [[spoiler: put a stop to the plan and return the sea turtle to the beach to finish laying her eggs and the resident joker ''Michelangelo'' starts sobbing as she swims off saying that she reminds him of his mother.]] Also, while they attempt to end the episode on a humorous note after that bit, it actually becomes sadder when rewatching it as an adult, when you can think about it enough to worry that even though [[spoiler: the sea turtle got to lay her eggs after all, based on April's claim that she was the last surviving member of her species, the eggs might not have been fertilized. So she could still be the last of her kind, ever.]]

** Bebop and Rocksteady cross this in "Shredder Triumphant" when they try and shove the Channel 6 crew out of a window.

Added DiffLines:

** "Get Shredder!" has the Channel 6 building being blown up by a bomb, which became much harsher after the Oklahoma City bombing. Surprisingly enough despite this the episode was never banned from airing unlike episodes of other shows which featured similar scenes(I.E. "New Partners on the Block" in ''Bonkers'').

*** However, with the additional cameo of the 1987 universe in the 2012 cartoon showing no elements of the Red Sky seasons and instead having the same wackiness in the first seven seasons, this interpretation may be gaining more traction.
This list shows the last 10 events of 244. Show all.
