Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon Violence in a Half-Shell (Review/Trailer)


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon Violence in a Half-Shell (Review/Trailer)

Way back in 1987, when the cartoon version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made its way over to the United Kingdom, the title was changed to Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles, which made the lyric in the theme song, “heroes in a half shell” redundant and the change was presumably because the term “ninja” was considered too negative or brought visions of too much violence to mind. It begs the question as to whether the sensibilities of the English censors might just be bothered enough to change this film’s title as well.
