Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (or simply Ninja Turtles) are a fictional team of four teenage anthropomorphic turtles, who were trained by their anthropomorphic rat sensei in the art of ninjutsu and named after four Renaissance artists. From their home in the storm sewers of New York City, they battle petty criminals, evil megalomaniacs, and alien invaders, all while remaining isolated from society at large. The characters initially appeared in comic books before being licensed for toys, cartoons, video games, films, and other merchandise. During the peak of its popularity in the late 1980s through early 1990s, the franchise gained considerable worldwide success and fame.

Bananaman

Bananaman is a British comic book fictional character. He originally appeared in Nutty as the backpage strip in Issue 1, dated 16 February 1980 drawn by John Geering.

Bananaman was aired in the United States by the Nickelodeon cable network as a companion piece to Dangermouse, but Bananaman never came close to reaching that series’ American popularity. The show also aired during the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s (ABC) after school timeslot and is considered one of the Classic ABC shows.

Some of these episodes would eventually re-appear in print form in The Dandy in 1998, coinciding with the BBC repeating the series that year, and are now being reprinted in the comic as of April 2007, now promoting the DVD. Each episode was roughly five minutes from start to end. Phrases from the show, “twenty big men” and “ever alert for the call to action”, are still used in the comic today.

Popples

Popples was a series of fantasy characters created by Those Characters From Cleveland (TCFC), a creative think tank and subsidiary company of American Greetings. Popples resemble brightly colored teddy bears or marsupials (but with long tails with pom-poms on the tip), and have pouches on their backs that they can go into and resemble brightly colored balls.

From 1986 to 1987, a two-season Popples cartoon series was broadcast in the United States, and there was a four-issue comic book series from Star Comics based on this cartoon (which was intended to be five issues long, but the fifth issue was never published).
