The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are four fictional teenage turtles, created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. They have been only in comic books in the beginning (1984) and then came the ninja turtles cartoons series, video games, toys and even Ninja Turtle merchandise. (source)
The ninja turtles were named after famous European artists and they were trained by their rat sensei (splinter) in the art of ninjutsu. The turtles live in the storm sewers of New York City and are superheros who battle criminals, mutated creatures, and alien invaders while attempting to remain hidden from people (like most heroes).
