TMNT WTF: Celebrating 32 Years Of Terrible Turtle Toys

The new film has a slew of merchandising tie-ins, but let's look at the worst ones from the past 32 years of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Published

Another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film comes out this year, marking 32 years of TMNT being a thing that exists! Over that time, though their popularity has waxed and waned, these money-makers have never totally stopped raking in the (pizza) dough. Maybe that's why everyone and their uncle licenses the characters to appear on all kinds of stuff? And believe us, over the past three decades, there's been a lot of junk!

To help us pick the strangest of the strange, we turned to TMNT experts Jonathan Zelenak of The Sewer Den and Cody Mix of Crooked Ninja Turtle Gang. Here are their top 10 picks for biggest TMNT WTF items:

OMG! I loved turtle pies! I always had one of these in my sack lunch back in elementary school. I think we need to petition these to come back. Who's with me?!?!?
