Favourite mafia depictions

Which TMNT-version is your favourite when it comes to the turtles dealing with mafia? Which crime bosses do you like the most?

I't prefer the original 1987-1996 animiated series because it had so many (some of them coller than other) but I like mafia in all versions and except for Footclan, street gangs and extraterrestrials, the turtles operating in a Godfather-like environment is one of my favourite TMNT-aspects.

The Vol 3 mobsters (whose names escape me at the moment) were pretty cool.

Ah! There we go.
Yeah, I thought he was a cool mobster/mafia type. Though his relationship with Shadow and the conflict it presented probably outweigh that.

Big Louie, a take on the Godfather. I found him to be fun yet effective. There is nothing inherently silly himself and he can be adapted if every given the opportunity. A rival mob of Beaver Cleaver was silly,but not Big Louie. The parody is done right.

This.

As a kid I always really wanted to see Puzorelli team with Tony Twist over in Spawn, as a precursor to a massive crossover. They're both in New York.

I'ma go with Big Louie. Though Turtelli was fun too. Tony "the Butcher" was another one I liked. But the Cleaver Gang was just silly.

I have always thought the Dracon mob from Gargoyles would fit well with the 4Kids TMNT. Actually have plans for including them in my crossover fic.

The big number of mob bosses in the 1987 show (Tony "Butcher" Vivaldi, Big Louie, Pinky McFingers, Don Turtelli, Wolf Jackson, Maddog McMutt, etc.) definitely added variety to the show, which is always beneficial.
That name Tony Vivaldi, sounds either like a real mafia boss's name or just a common Italian name, sounds like something I've heard many places before.

All the mobsters are great.

Original cartoon has Big Louie, Pinky Mcfingers, Don Turtelli, Mad Dogg Mcmutt and others.

4kids series had those gangsters in City at War.

Nick cartoon has the fat mob boss with the flying chair.

Image had Shadow's real father and various other mobsters

IDW has Lupo and his gang.


I love seeing the Turtles take on organized crime. It's a nice change of pace from the Foot, aliens, mutants, robots, etc.

I had a feeling that either Cubed or Nines would come back with a radically different personality.

Cubed still sounds the same so my call is that the new Nines will be calm, lovey dovey, serene and best buddies with Cubed from now on.
