Ninja Turtles as Their Namesakes Would Have Drawn Them Children of the ’90s know the story of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by heart: An exiled ninja living in the sewers finds four turtles covered in a mysterious ooze, which transforms them into turtle-human hybrids and him into a half-rat, half-man. The learned sensei names his surrogate children for a quartet of Renaissance artists — Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello.
