I would erase IDW's "Donatello is dead" nonsense arc/campaign.

It sort of depends on how the vacuum would be filled.

On one hand, I'd like to erase the first Platinum Dunes film. But that is assuming that some other studio would get the job done around that time.

There are other, more pivotal moments to mess around with in the history of TMNT, but this was really the perfect opportunity to bring TMNT back into the spotlight in a big way. Audiences were ready to take it seriously, the technology was there, etc. It was a big waste of potential.

The Los Angeles Times must have been stuck in 1989 or 1990. While there still were TMNT action figures in 1993, they weren't the hippest thing that Christmas.

TMNT was only a fad in 1989. The TMNT craze (Turtlemania) happened in 1990.

The Deluxe Talkboy by Tiger Electronics was the hippest thing in 1993, but TMNT did not leave all of the best selling toys of the holiday lists until 1995. The original Playmates toy line sub-waves with the turtle variants were selling quite well with some younger Generation XYers and Yers, until Beanie Babies, Toy Story, MMPR, Spawn toys, and the Virtual Boy for the SNES took over.

Bay movie Splinter! Heís hard to look at cause heís so freakin ugly, even for a mutated rat.

Also the 2k12 mystic episode where Fishface says to Raphael, ď Iím going to give you bass to mouthĒ. I find that disturbing.

That's amazing and worth saving for future generations.

I'd remove the original Shredder action figure, if we got a better one instead.
