Don... his weapon usually had the longest range in the video games. :)

Unless you read the comics where they replaced them with twin sticks.

I thought everyone liked Michaelangelo....so i always went for the underdog, who i always thought of as Raphael. So that's my choice. Plus...i like red.

How can Michaelangelo only have 2 votes? A travesty. He had all the best lines!

Well, he WAS a bit annoying. Wasn't he?

I voted Donny ... purely because he kicked ass on both TMNT (NES) and TMNT (Arcade). :)

Another vote for Don here. He was always the turtle everyone fought over in the arcade. No one picked Raf though........

How the hell is Raphael winning?

Leonardo was my favourite.

Id love it if a new team of heros arrived in this day and age that encouraged kids to eat pizza. Theyd get sent to hell and accused of inciting childhood obesity.

Trying to pick a favourite Turtle is like trying to pick a favourite finger... they are all good... hmm... choices, choices!

Michaelangelo is a party dude!

That's good enough for me.

He was always the one I picked in the arcade game. Though I'd suspect he'd be a bit of an annoying censored to know in real life!

I'm not really into the TMNT but somehow I can remember all the words to Partners in Kryme's Turtle Power & the cartoon theme tune. Which leads me to a question that's always bugged me - who was their leader? I remember the cartoon theme tune said "Leonardo leads - Donatello does machines" but Partners in Kryme insisted "Raphael, he's the leader of the group transformed from the norm by the nuclear gloop"

Maybe someone more familiar with turtles canon can help me out.

Back in the 1980's when it first came on Shredder was my favourite character(He was voiced by Uncle Phil of the Fresh Prince I believe).. Still have the Topps cards and a Shredder and April O'neil figures..

Out of the Turtles Michealanglo was my favourite in the cartoon.. In the Black and White comics it would be probally be Raphael.. Watching the cartoons these days it would be Raphael as he sarcastic and hates everyones..

Seeing Shredders not a option I'm going to vote Michealangelo

Raphael was my favourite as a kid. I loved the sai weapons and I suppose it didn't help that red was my favourite colour back then...

I never knew Shredder was Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince! Shredder was great in the cartoons

"You rang, Krang?" always makes me laugh when he says it.

For me the best in the cartoon was Raphael, but in the games it had to be donatello

still prefer the name HERO turtles though
