Another production cel from the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series has gone live at Heritage Auctions. This production cel features the four iconic Turtles themselves: brave leader Leonardo, loose canon and sarcastic Raphael, brilliant and empathetic Donatello, and hilarious and fun Michaelangelo. Initially created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird back in 1984 through their own Mirage Studios comic book company, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has sustained its popularity throughout the years. From its time as an independently produced comic, to being one of the most recognizable cartoons in the world, to producing the massively popular line of toys, to being adapted into the landmark live-action movies, and now, finally, going back to comics with IDW Publishing's long-running hit comic. Today, let's take a closer look at these production cels now available to bid on at Heritage Auctions.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello production cel (Murakami-Wolf-Swenson, c. 1987-96).
