** The opening theme for seasons 1-7 as well the "red sky" theme.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTcwZ6gRXnQ The German version]], even though it was released as ''Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles''.
** The piece of music that plays when the Technodrome's on screen.
** The Italian theme song. It sounds ''absolutely nothing'' like the original, but it's nice and [[EarWorm surprisingly catchy]].

** Irma. Cute as a button, and it also helps that the rest of her Channel 6 co-workers (save for April) are annoying [[TheScrappy Scrappies.]]

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: One of the first episodes featured an entire building flooding out and spilling a massive amount of water in the city when said building explodes from the pressure. Though [[ArtisticLicensePhysics copious on its own merits already,]] it can hit way too close to home for those involved in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, especially since the setting for the cartoon is New York City.

** Female example: Some fans see this with April and Irma, some even like to insist that Irma wants more than just friendship from April; and Irma always clinging to, or sometimes being protective of April kind of eggs this on.

** Baxter Stockman. Starting out he was just trying to legally make money off his inventions and the Shredder offered him work, but then tried to murder him [[YouHaveOutLivedYourUsefulness to keep him from saying anything about his plans]], and after being rescued by the turtles he's left tied to a telephone pull. In Season 2 he's shanghaied by Shredder into helping him again and the abuse he takes eventually turns him into a full blown villain and he's turned a mutant fly. Later he tries to make himself human again and the turtles stop him for no good reason by kicking him into a dimensional portal where he's apparently eaten by a spider monster. He's one of the least evil villains on the show but the only one with a (heavily implied) canon death.

* 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 ''WesternAnimation/{{Captain Planet|and the Planeteers}}'' 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.]]

** The penultimate example for most fans of the original series is in the opening episode "Get Shredder" where [[spoiler: Shredder actually ''destroys'' the Channel 6 building which takes it out of commission for the rest of the series.]]

** The plight of the Neutrinos, whose only 'crime' in Dimension X is to be young and not want to take part in the endless war of the adults around them, grows more poignant for the generation who came of age post-9/11 and the seemingly unending war in the Middle East.

* CriticalResearchFailure: In earlier seasons the turtles are occasionally called amphibians. Turtles are reptiles. While some of these instances could be taken as an intentional insult, the turtles call themselves amphibians on at least one occasion.

** Seasons 8, 9 and 10, the "Red Sky" seasons. (Possibly CanonDiscontinuity, since ''TurtlesForever'' chose to ignore those seasons completely.)
