4. Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are a beloved part of the pop-culture landscape and have been since their debut in the '80s. However, the franchise was probably at the height of its popularity in the '90s due to both the live-action movie series and the animated TV shows. One often forgotten piece of history is that there was also a pretty short-lived live-action series too. Titled Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation, it wasn't exactly hard to see why it wasn't a fan-favorite.

The show opted against telling some of the more well-known TMNT stories and decided to bring in some new characters, particularly Venus, the first ever female Ninja Turtle. She was a welcome addition to the line-up and certainly changed up the dynamic. What wasn't well-received was the lack of focus on classic characters such as Shredder, the lack of the turtles' signature weaponry, and just the overall cheesy vibe of the series.

Like many live-action super shows of the '90s, The Next Mutation looked very low budget and it isn't really a surprise that it only lasted one season. While the reception to it has softened in the years since, it isn't exactly welcomed with open arms among the TMNT fandom either.
