Cultural Artifact Analysis Paper:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' action figures

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or "TMNT", were the cult icon action figures in the 1990s. Created after two independent writers wrote a comic book about the lives of five teenage mutant ninja turtles and their epic battles fighting against evil, the world was onto something more exciting, new, and for a younger generation. The comic book turned into an afternoon cable TV show for children, later, producing a graphic film shown in movie theaters across the world. The younger generation soaked up the action-packed shows, and the market gave them more, including these toy- action figures. However, It didn't stop there- childrens' backpacks were printed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, figure-shaped toothbrushes, green toothpastes, and various lines of clothings were produced to market towards the children. America in 1990 was booming with hit TV shows that were marketed to the younger generation. It was the start of a new marketing technique that helped America's market ride onto the fast pace to wealth.
