Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Gargoyles Get Mashed Up In 90s Crossover Art

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Gargoyles get mashed up in new 1990s crossover art. Based on the comic book characters, the first animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series premiered in 1987 and ran throughout most of the 1990s following the crime-fighting adventures of Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo. Gargoyles was much more short-lived, airing from 1994 to 1997 and following the titular creatures named Goliath, Brooklyn, Broadway, Lexington, and Hudson who turn to stone by day and serve as the city’s secret protectors by night.


Some new fan art shared by rafaramos.art on Instagram recently crossed over the two iconic 1990s cartoons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Gargoyles, in unexpected fashion. Check out the fan art below:

The fan art specifically mashes up the free-spirited Michelangelo and the kind-hearted Broadway, capturing some signature aspects of both characters, including the ninja turtle’s nunchucks and the gargoyle’s muscular build and wings. The mashed-up creature also has a tattoo of the Turtles’ favorite food – pizza.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Gargoyles Would Have Been A Perfect Crossover

Considering the similarities between the two teams, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Gargoyles would have been a perfect crossover during the 1990s. Both teams are based in New York City and fight crime at night, one in the sky and one underground, which would make for an unstoppable combination if they joined forces. The Turtles are known for patrolling the streets under the cover of darkness, utilizing their ninja skills, stealth, and weapons to combat crime. Gargoyles similarly use the night to their advantage, but as creatures with wings, they also utilize their aerial mobility to patrol and protect.

However, it seems like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Gargoyles may have missed the perfect opportunity for a crossover. Gargoyles is no longer at the height of its popularity and hasn’t really been relevant since the cartoon ended in 1997, only appearing in video games and comic books since. Meanwhile, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have seen countless iterations since the 1990s cartoon ended, including a new animated movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem releasing this summer.
