TMNT Fun Fact

When Steve and I were searching for a name for Cherubae we were having no
luck. We even considered combining the names of our then girlfriends at the
time but that didn't work either.

As fate would have it we both kept humming the Rolling Stones song "Shattered" and
somewhere in there we both thought we had heard the word
"cherubae" and bingo! that's the name we went with! I don't know if that
word is really in there or not but it did help us solve our dilemma.

Now that I listen to it again I guess Mick is singing "shadoobie".

awesome story! I love knowing fun facts like this about the TMNT.
She's a great characters I even liked her as Marry Bones.
It's funny, when I was a kid I didn't really know who created all of these characters but I kept sending letters to Playmates bugging them to make action figures of them lol
Sadly they send me a letter telling me none of them would ever be made into toys. :(
I hope that changes some day.

-->> it was always ..

/ SHER - OO - BAY /

..not ..

/ / CHAIR -YOO - BAY / / like i used to say the name eons ago.

So she would be considered enemy and rival to the S. O . Silence ?!

.. i never figured them as evil, more neutral, ..but not very good either.

Real creepy too..

but i blame Whitley Strieber and my mother for that.

Cher i consider on the same level as Renet.. rather omnimpotent but very good. this the basic deal.

Cher has always been somewhat enigmatic.

Would she ever have returned at some point if Mutanimals/ Archie TMNT stayed around .. ?!

..anyway thank you for clearing up about Shaboobies~~**

* * one of the Norway versions of the Cherubae comics i have.. they messed up and her skin tone , instead of lavender ..they just made it bronze.

She looks really weird with bronze skin.


Steve Lavigne Ryan Brown said...
