TMNT logo history

The official TMNT twitter tweeted this picture of the logo's TMNT has used in all their incarnations, I found it interesting since we're all familiar with the classic logo but looking back at the image it seems to have been retired. Also used for Archie and the video games at the time.

Also worth noting that the movies have a different logo, we so often seem them released with the OT's logo that I forgot they even had a different logo.

Sadly the only logo missing from here is TMNT 2007, even The Next Mutation made it; RIP friend.

It's kind of funny how similar the 2k3 logo is to the original cartoon logo, especially since Peter Laird wanted to distance the show as much from the original cartoon as possible.

So is the theme song... well not the lyrics, but I dunno. The theme song and ED of the 2k3 series has a very TMNT feel to it. I can't explain. It's like it bears similarities even if subtle to the FW series ED.

The only difference I can spot between the theme songs for the FW and 2003 series is that each lyric is emphasised. Apart from that the FW series theme song has catchy if slightly irrelevant lyrics while the 2003 theme song is a counting game on how to count to four.

Though realizing now that in a way the 2014 logo is itself lightly similar to 2003 with some of the letter shaping.

TMNT tweeted back at me, mentioned no disrespect to 2007 but thought it was a looked better representation, also mentioned he didn't put IDW for hte same reason.

Order from top 8 to top 1 and since Mirage is the best its last

But I'm guessing they just wanted Rise to be at the top since it's the newest.

That's a cool graphic. Man, that 2014 logo is a mess.

I still prefer the classic Mirage one out of all of them.
Also, is there a story or reason behind why the ‘j’ in ‘ninja’ is curved a bit? I’ve always wondered about that.
