yeah i got pictures. they're in my head. yeah, i remember my walmart full of tmnt toys on the racks/pegs. KB had a mother load all the way up to the ceiling and down.

i remember picking out raph and mikey. i remember getting metal head after getting out of the hospital which felt like months. hell i remember getting a can of ooze with lil mini turtles in it. i even remember picking out splinter and thinking 'why do i want someone so lame?' and yet i had to get him. i HAD too. something compelled me to get that rata
theyre fuzzy memories but i remember how it looked.
it was so awesome my girlfriend would cream herself. and she's a bigger tmnt fan than i. and she's only 19.

I'm not sure if your post is nostalgic or creepy. Does your girlfriend know you talk about her this way in a public forum?

You can briefly see some TMNT figures on racks a few times in the background towards the end of this video.

Ha! He grabbed a Barbie at the very end. We all know that's what he really wanted. Otherwise he wouldn't have slammed that Genesis into the cart so hard... and he would have grabbed the SNES instead.

Ah, that awkward transition phase between the 80's and 90's. A time when it was cool to wear a t-shirt that was 3 sizes too big and tuck it into your pants that were pulled up way too high. Those were the days.

This photo is from 1988 featuring the plush line:


This is from some video rental store circa 1991-92, showing some VHS tapes for rent:

"After looking through the video rental store, Rachel Bishop finally spots the movie she wants to rent. However, her friend, Gail Alexander, is not too excited about watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."

F*cking b*tch.
