When I was a kid, almost late 90's... I came across Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon which looked a heck of a lot like the OT. There were slight graphical improvements, but the turtles' eyes had YELLOW instead of WHITE. (Not sure if this was an effect used for Night scenes, but the show itself always happened at night, so....).

Did I dream this, or at some point during the OT did the graphics improve and the Turtles' eyeballs were yellow instead of white?
This has been driving me nuts for AGES!

The so-called "Red Sky" seasons 8-10 featured a full animation overhaul, which included some noticeable changes to the turtles' eye sockets (you could see some green skin between their eyes and the bandana fabric). I don't know about the yellow effect though. I guess it could have been your TV's color settings or else the animation just gave you that impression. Season 8 was the best looking of the Red Sky episodes.
