We at The Rubber Chicken have long considered the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon a few edits and a laugh track away from being the perfect sitcom. Even the voice actors openly recognise villains Krang and Shredder as the classic bickering married couple. Now if only somebody would get rid of those pesky turtles, we could finally enjoy TMNT as the romantic adventure-comedy it was clearly destined to be.
We have the technology.
If you enjoyed this video, be sure to check out some of our previous TMNT posts, including an illustrated tribute to Krang, the Turtles’ victory over Global Warming, or a warts-and-all look at their scandallous private lives.

I cry inside every time you mock me
When the turtles pull our plans apart
You might be a talking brain
But I’ll never stop searching for a heart.
Scheming in the Technodrome
We’re a family bound together
It’s not a house but it feels like home
When Everybody Loves Shredder.
