My Haiku:
I wrote this haiku
with the hope that just maybe.
It blows you away.

The name is irrelevant.
The person is male.
The age is older.
The stories are true.

80's Icon of the Month - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

tup-tup dah bulan februari. another month comes along. with it, comes the paycheck and also another edition of 80's Icon of the Month. (i should get this name trademarked)...hehehe...
for this month, i wanna go back to my childhood days. duhhh...in the 80's i was a kid. so like any other normal boy, i was into cartoons. and certainly one of my favourite cartoons back then was the Teenage Mutang Ninja Turtles. i know that they were other bigger names back in the 80's with the likes of transformers and GI Joe, to name a few. don't get me wrong, i loved them but i guess that these reptiles deserve their due recognition. alaaaa...there's other months to go, rite?
teenage mutant ninja turtles or TMNT were certainly one of my favourites back then. they had this attitude so different from the other cartoons. they were always clowing around, had this sick sense of humor and they loved pizza. certainly an image the 80's younger generation can relate to.
how i would wake up on sunday mornings early to catch their show. with the catchy theme song that i remember till today, u know u loved the turtles. and a good catch phrase certainly helped out...'Heroes in a half shell'.
with their wise old guru in the form of a mouse named Splinter and a bad guy with the name of Shredder and his foot soldiers, how could u miss it? these guys spend the day hanging out in the sewers while fighting the baddies. not bad for a superhero, eh? oh yeah...i almost forgot an important character. she was a female reporter...but i forgot her name. maybe some of u toon freaks can help me out there. april if i'm not mistaken. aweks wajib ada. cartoon pun cartoon gak, but u just gotta have sex appeal. hehhehehe...
TMNT went on to become one of the biggest merchandise in the 80's. they had a few movies too. the first TMNT movie, aku ingat lagi pegi tengok kat Capitol Seremban with my uncle and cousins. punya la excited....even the chinese-dubbed dialog couldn't spoil my mood...heeeee...
TMNT will always be remembered for its kick ass attitude of turtles named after great artists: Michaelangelo, Donatello, Raphael and alamak...blank pulak sape sekor lagi....wathisname tah....
so despite not remembering the 4th turtle, i give my salute to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...heroes in a half shell and 80's icon of the month!
