I'm pretty sure I got all of the artists right, but I have no idea which Ninja Turtles are which.

Me, neither. Sorry I'm lame. You should get David to do this.

I only know that Rafael is the red turtle. And also that you and Chris use to fight over who would be the purple turtle. Or did I make that up?

David Mayer said...

1-C Leonardo (Easiest one)
2-D Michelangelo (Fortunately I recognized the Sistine Chapel)
3-A Raphael (I only knew this one because I watched "Angels and Demons")
4-B Donatello (I totally only got this one through process of elimination.)

For a tiny bit of extra trivia: A few years after the original cartoon series ended (but several years before the new awesome cartoon started in 2004) there was a thankfully short-lived live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show that actually had a female Ninja Turtle with a light blue mask.

Can you guess the name of the female Ninja Turtle?

Sorry David. That was a very valiant effort, but you got the art a little bit mixed up. The one with the angels was painted by Raphael. The pieta (or the one with Mary holding Christ) is by Michelangelo. The other two you got right.

Also, is the girl ninja turtle named Venus? That's so funny! I never heard of her before.

David Mayer said...

DRAT! So close!

Well, I'm sure I'll do better on the next '80s cartoon trivia.

Yeah, so the girl turtle was named Venus de Milo. You can read her Wikipedia entry here
