Young Sheldon

On tonightís episode of Young Sheldon (season 3 premiere), Sheldonís sister, Missy and their father watched a season 4 or 5 episode of TMNT (a CBS episode). Missy was explaining to her father, George, that she found Leonardo (who was eating a pizza fresh out of the oven) to be the hot one (not Raphael like so many girls did in 1990). This particular episode is set in the fall of 1990. George Cooper didnít understand TMNT like so many adults in the early 90s.

So basically she's me back in the day, I just wouldn't ever have said it. (Would anyone actually have dared to about a cartoon character back then?) Not a show I've watched, but the kid's got good taste in Turles. lol

I canít find the clip online yet of Missy and George Cooper watching the TMNT CBS Saturday morning cartoon, but itís been almost forever now since clips from the classic cartoon were the standard networks.

In a sixth season episode of The Big Bang Theory, adult Sheldon sung the opening theme to the FW cartoon. Donít quote me on this, but I believe the 1987 TMNT theme was written by Young Sheldon co-creator, Chuck Lorre. Iíve seen clips from Tiny Toon Adventures and Pee Weeís Playhouse on Young Sheldon before, so I was expecting a TMNT reference to pop up (especially since the 2018 to 2019 was when the characters entered the 90s).

From my understanding, boys of the very early 90s wanted to be Donatello and usually had a crush on April, while girls in the very early 90s liked Raphael because he was Ďcool, but rudeí. Both adults and children were all familiar with Michelangelo, so he was featured in quite a few PSAs in the very early 90s. Leonardo was the one a lot of people got wrong when they were asked to name the turtles by the headbands in 1990. Leonardo was the least liked back then, but the original action figure was always hard to find in the very early 90s.

TMNT didn't start on CBS until fall 1990, so I'm curious what episode it was and whether or not I need to be "that nerd" who points out that this episode wasn't actually out yet.

TMNT Season 2

Isn't that a season 2 TMNT episode?

I watched the episode just for the few seconds after seeing this thread. George states he didn't understand Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which Missy replies it's all in the title. The last scene had so little of it. I was going to guess Leonardo Lights Up. It was not enough to get an accurate idea of what is being shown in the background. A friend of mine told me that in elementary school her first crush was Michelangelo. It was the only time I heard of a girl romantically interested in the Turtles. Sure, boys would quietly prefer one April actress over the other based on looks, it was usually Turco over Hoag despite the hair being different from the cartoon character.

Wasnít the checkered red and white tablecloth (usually seen in Italian restaurants) in their dining room during the 1990 to 1993 CBS episodes? CBS is credited for the TMNT clip after the show, so it wasnít a syndicated FW episode.

I'm a fan of this show. Haven't seen this one yet. That said this would not make the first time their date accuracy seemd a little off to me. They are usually in the right general time frame. So I forgive it.

Itís on Cablevision On Demand, the CBS website, or it can be downloaded from Apple iTunes, Vudu, Amazon Video, PlayStation, FandangoNOW, Google Play Movies, Microsoft Store [in case you didnít know].
