Thank You, Internet: Dogs Dressed Up as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

In anticipation of the new film, here are photos of the Internet's best dogs and puppies dressed up as Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello.

The hype around the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is buzzing, with the flick set to see a cinematic release this August. For the heroes in a half shell’s latest mission, they’ve been styled in an altogether grizzlier manner, with the directors looking to update the green quartet’s appearance to match today’s cold and cruel world. 

That’s all fine and dandy, but thankfully a bunch of dogs on the Internet have kept faith with the original turtle template and dolled themselves up in homemade ninja attire that aims for a more cartoonish effect. Here’s a photo roundup of the seven best hounds who are getting ready to square off against Shredder and his vicious Foot Clan — well, at least when they’re not happily napping on the job.

If this home-crocheted look doesn’t strike deathly fear into any impending bad guys then we’re all doomed.

Who knew that Michelangelo would turn out to be the most responsible and alert turtle out of the whole the group?

Warning: Full-on Ninja Turtle battle regalia might make you look as if you’re straining to pop out a deadly nugget or two.

This is what happens when Ninja Turtle pups decide to embrace their hippie side and take up yoga instead of focussing on their martial arts. 

All day I dream about pizza.

I knew I shouldn’t have gone near that third pepperoni pie.

Possibly not coming soon to screens in 2018: Teenage Mutant Ninja Corgis in Space.
