The Real Ghostbusters vs. the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Over at the other site I write for, Adventures in Poor Taste, I whipped this Turtle-related article up:

The Real Ghostbusters vs. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

It's a review of an episode of "The Real Ghostbusters" that aired in 1990, "Mean Green Teen Machine", which was a rather ill-executed attack on the success of the Fred Wolf "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" animated series. It's an interesting watch, to say the least; even moreso because Cam Clarke (80s voice of Leonardo) plays the lead Turtle-parody character, "Guggenheim".

But while I'm equal parts Ghostbusters and TMNT fan, all this episode succeeded in doing was to make both parties look embarassing.
