This GOLDEN GIRLS/TMNT Mashup Is the Perfect April Fool’s Remedy

April Fool’s Day is upon us, the day in which we try to figure out what cool movie or TV stories are real, and which ones are made to get us excited, only to pull the rug out from under us. The official Twitter account for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made a not so subtle attempt at an April Fool’s joke, but even if no-one believed the headline, they still created something to brighten our day.

Aside from the fact that they used footage from the 2003 series and not the new series, we’re pretty sure Nickelodeon isn’t allowed to use the Golden Girls theme for one of their shows (well, maybe if the cartoon were on Nick at Nite or TV Land, but that’s a whole other discussion). The main question that we need to answer now is, which Golden Girl is each Turtle? Let’s get the obvious one out of the way first. Michaelangelo is Rose. No question. As for the rest, you can make decent arguments for any pairing. We’re going to go with: Donatello and Sophia, Leonardo and Dorothy, and Raphael and Blanche. For Splinter and April, we’d have to delve into Empty Nest territory. The wormholes this would create would be too deep even for us.

As you try to wade your way through what’s real and what’s not today, at least you know you have this mashup to make surviving it a little easier.

What do you think are the best Golden Girl/Turtle pairings? Let me know on Twitter @donnielederer or sound off in the comments below.
