Considered one of the most popular kids’ franchises, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a classic, global property created in 1984 by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. It first debuted as a successful comic book series and then became a hit animated TV show, a live-action television series and later spawned numerous blockbuster theatrical releases.
The property is a global consumer products (buy TMNT products now at Amazon) powerhouse, winning in every category that has hit shelves to date — with toys, apparel, video games, DVDs and more — and generating billions of dollars at retail.
