Yeah, I totally had in mind the actual Tiffany as a sidekick/accessory character!

In the UK-exclusive newspaper comic strip, it was revealed that Burne was actually cheating on his wife (so that kind of "girlfriend"), a fact that the Turtles and April used to threaten him to give April her job back after getting fired!

Oh my gosh, I absolutely love that idea! :D

Tiffany really needed to appear more, she would've been a fun addition to the regular cast (although I could do with her voice being slightly more toned down).

The Burne figure made him a slob. Was it that Burne was tubby that made the angle for the toy makers who did not know anything beyond character design and he was the boss?

She only appeared twice,correct? It was Return of The Shredder and 20,000 Leaks Under The Sewers.

Any chance that we can see the U.K. strip that you reference, Winters?

Yes, you would be correct, although Burne was talking to someone on the phone about going out that night for dinner and dancing, in "Shredder and Splintered".

I assume he was talking to Tiffany there.

I've only seen what was posted in an ebay auction some years ago, but here are all those pictures I saved, from which you can piece together the basic plot:

Mr Thompson admittedly looks quite elderly in those,even more than the series (I think he was 50 there?)

Yes, it was explained in "20,000 Leaks Under The Sewers" that he was turning 50 years old and did not want it spoken aloud not wanting Tiffany to know his true age. I prefer it be a joke at his expense and that he is 40 at least for my continuation of the series.

Okay, it's settled, I'm gonna make a static Tiffany statue as an accessory for Burne.

Gonna use this as a base:

So, here's a second question:

Can anyone think of some good character-specific accessories for the Burne Thompson figure? Only ideas I've got are a clipboard, a sheaf of papers, and a black office telephone. Pretty lame. Any iconic, unique, or episode-specific objects he uses?

Maybe I'm remembering wrong but wasn't there an episode where Burne put on a coat and hat to go with Vernon to investigate something? You could add that to him to wear as an option.

Yes, Burne's Blues. He got caught by Don Turteli and creepy gimmick and then Elvis impersonator aliens, the first out there plot line in the series.

As a general rule, I don't do soft-goods on my figures.
