I indulged Pumpkin and myself in a little MickeyD's on Tuesday. Yes, I know, horrible for us, unhealthy, too much fat and too much salt, blah, blah, blah, but sometimes you just gotta have the french fries, you know?
So I opened up her Happy Meal and fell into a time warp. You see, nestled there in its little plastic baggie, next to the chicken nuggets, was a tough-looking, muscular green reptile... with a purple mask on. Yup, Donatello, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, was grinning up at me.
"Wha?!" I thought. "Isn't this from, like, MY childhood years?" Lo and behold, I go to look up which turtle he is (because all I could remember of their color-coding was that Raphael was red, and that only thanks to alliteration) and I found out that there's a TMNT movie in the works for 2007.
So, just for kicks, and 'cuz anything TMNT just seems decades out of whack to me, what year do you think the first (and originally intended to be only) comic book of the turtles was made?
(Happy guessing! I'll post the answer in the comments in a few days.)
