Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) or just Ninja Turtles is a multimedia franchise created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in November 1983. The title refers to four fictional humanoid turtles named Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael. They practice ninjutsu and various Japanese martial arts, while guided by a humanoid rat, Splinter, as their sensei. Their best human friend is a woman named April O'Neil.

Nickelodeon purchased the TMNT franchise from Mirage Studios and 4Kids Entertainment in October 2009.[1]

  • Although Nickelodeon's ownership of the Ninja Turtles franchise includes the rights to the characters' depictions from the 1987 animated series produced by Fred Wolf Films (including its characters appearing in a few crossover episodes of the 2012 series, and various merchandise depicting the 1987 characters produced since 2010), Nickelodeon does not own the original cartoon itself as of 2021.
