No you can't have it.
2001-12-30 2:57:39 PM  
I love the Turtles. Elenor is such a great song.
2001-12-30 3:15:49 PM  
Who picks these posts?????

That Dewey kid from Malcom in the middle?????

"Tonight we dine on turtle soup! Har har har!"

Wow, I never noticed how hot April was back in seventh grade.

"You're dazed..
Trapped in a world without time,
where sounds collide with color,
and shadows explode..
But this is no ordinary internet experience..
This is the real life,everyday world of
There's a signpost up ahead..
Next stop,the Fark Zone..."

Forgot how fine April was. A real hottie. Does anyone know if Mattel ever came out w/ an April Barbie?

Gotta love TMNT

I used to play this game forever. I must have conquered it 30 times. You know these kids today don't know how hard it was pretending reptiles used Japanese weapons with Italian names.

Pizza power!

I still think btw X-E's best article is on

This movie scarred me for life and I had to watch it in elemetary school at least 3 times that I remember.

What? Valkhorn, why are there 4 Rapheals in that picture?
2001-12-30 4:11:40 PM  
In later episodes you could tell the turtles apart by the shade of green their skin was.
2001-12-30 4:13:36 PM  
this should do it

Still got this episode on tape.
2001-12-30 4:18:22 PM  
Why does the shredder hide that sexy face behind a mask?

Ok, I'm going to go get a life now.
2001-12-30 4:20:05 PM  
Dammit, I'm incompitant.

Now I will go out and get a life.
2001-12-30 4:21:31 PM  
failed again and mispelled incompetant. I give up
2001-12-30 4:26:10 PM  

That's a good question. I found this off of Google.

Don't shoot the messenger :P
2001-12-30 4:51:12 PM  
Turtles. Yeah, yeah. Whatever. Now on to something interesting.

Dolphins win! (ok, normally, I wouldn't give two shiats, but that just iced the playoffs for the Bucs. How fun will it be, if projections are correct, and the Bucs have to play a home-and-home series vs. the Eagles in consecutive weeks?)
2001-12-30 4:59:55 PM  
Heroes in a half-shell, TURTLE POWER!
2001-12-30 5:01:57 PM  
Here's the link that Valkorn provided, now in hypertext form!
2001-12-30 5:07:42 PM  
My brother has just about every TMNT action figure ever made.
2001-12-30 5:19:41 PM  
2001-12-30 5:37:41 PM  
Was George Harrison the 2nd or 3rd Turtle to die?
2001-12-30 5:38:28 PM  
"I made a funny!"

Focking rat...
2001-12-30 5:43:37 PM  
Damn. I thought for a second that might be about something interesting. Has anyone else here read the original comics (long before the cartoon), back when it was actually good?
2001-12-30 6:07:10 PM  
haha... Listen to that curry.wav file that's linked from the 4th installment of the worst movie of all time.

2001-12-30 6:13:30 PM  
"Think about this for a moment: if this one particular episode sucked, Vanilla Ice would never have appeared in the second Turtles live action movie."

Hey anyone remember that song by Vanilla Ice in TMNT 2?
'Go ninja, go ninja,go'

yeah, that was a great song
2001-12-30 6:23:26 PM  
For Farkers Only: You can download an avi of the entire Vanilla Ice/TMNT song-and-dance number here: It's 2.5 megs.
2001-12-30 6:40:43 PM  
Anyone remember the Turtles trying to make a live-action comeback on Fox a couple years ago?They should've just replayed the old cartoon or something like that.
2001-12-30 6:51:49 PM  
Foot Soldiers were doubly cool because they had the posture of old, crippled women.

LOL...thats the best analogy I have ever seen in quite a long time. E-Entertainment always lives up to its stupid yet quality entertainment.
2001-12-30 6:54:06 PM  
Hey Matt, great article. If I would have known you were a Farker, I would have just said it here: TMNT was the best kid craze ever.
2001-12-30 6:55:42 PM  
Because all good artists have to do porn: April pron (obviously this is NSFW) grfxadlt/april01.jpg

Well, at least it's better than the TMNT gay porn we had on here a few weeks ago.

2001-12-30 6:58:40 PM  
Matt... all this time that you've linked to Fark, and you just made yourself an account two days ago? Shame on you!

Aw...who am I kidding. I love your site. Good stuff! Keep up the good work! When you write, it's entertaining; just don't leave us hanging for too long. Then again... when there are breaks, it's time to cruise the archives!
2001-12-30 7:32:34 PM  
Man oh man..I don't know how I'd get through the workday if I couldn't read through the X-E archives....Cool as Ice baby!
2001-12-30 8:45:12 PM  
the one where the fake turtles went and busted up shiat to give the real turtles a bad name, fuggin genius that. Now i'm gonna get a pizza delivered to my local sewer
2001-12-30 9:08:13 PM  
i had a b-day party at burger king with a guy dressed up as a TMNT once. it was michelangelo. bizarro
2001-12-30 9:35:31 PM  
Valkhorn ..very very peculiar looking movie.. does it still scare you?

3HORN ..Thank you. I never thought I would actually see April naked! Finally, now my mission is fulfilled here and I can leave. Leonardo shows a bit more then I care to see and I hope Donnatello will wear protection.. looks dangerously close to April. I hope she does not get impregnated.. what odd children..
2001-12-30 10:11:23 PM  
Bonobo62 : Yes, I do remember the comic..and JimiJimi: They all wore red in the comic. Early on, before it got mainstream--TMNT were often gory and lethal.

I enjoyed the dark, brooding and violent comic--not the cheesy, kids-oriented 'mutation' the concept underwent for the mainstream tv.
2001-12-30 10:20:10 PM  
Hey Bostsurakeu or whatever your name is... leave the show alone! Dorky kids like me would have never known true fads if it wasn't for the "cheesifying" of TMNT.
2001-12-30 10:22:57 PM  
2001-12-30 10:31:17 PM  
"oh i hate everything mainstream... sell-outs.." Yeah ok, the point of having a career is to be successful. When something gets popular, the creator is successful. Sorry you can't have everything all to yourself.
2001-12-30 10:42:00 PM  
great, now tomorrow I'm gonna search through my boxes for my TMNT tape of the first episode....way to bring in the new year....
2001-12-30 11:05:06 PM  
I must have about a million dollars worth of salvagable plastic in all the TMNT toys I have lying in storage. Ahh, bliss.
2001-12-30 11:44:14 PM  
I want a synopsis of the episode with the mutation of Baxter Stockman. Didnt they have him around a few episodes as a human first?
2001-12-30 11:56:01 PM  
ToeKnee, I reviewed that epsiode on X-E, but you can download the entire show here:

Enjoy. =) (It's called Enter The Fly, and yes, features Baxter as both a human & a fly)
2001-12-31 12:00:15 AM  
Thanks, Dload & Geddy. =)
2001-12-31 1:54:49 AM  
OK, somebody answer me this: What were those drill things that Shredder, Rocksteady & Bebop used to go from the Technodrome to the surface called? For the life of me I can't remember...
2001-12-31 1:58:19 AM  
One accepted name for those bots I know of is Roadkill Rodney.
2001-12-31 2:08:31 AM  
Turtles were cool, but lets face it they had nothing on Bucky O' Hare and the toad wars, lets hear it for Bucky people!
