On Pizza

Here’s a thing that’s maybe interesting that I found while reading on the can going through old comics. Above is a pin-up in the back of the Leonardo one-shot, published at the end of 1986. The only credit given is “Andy.” The original TMNT comics were all self-published, and Eastman and Laird would often print fan art (sometimes from other semi-famous indie comic book artists) in the back. The unusual thing about this is that I’m pretty sure this is the first instance *ever* of pizza being mentioned in connection to the Turtles. Nowhere else in the original comics do the Turtles ever eat pizza or talk about pizza; it’s pretty much an invention of the cartoon show, which started a year later. Here, I think it’s to make a simple “practice/pizza” alliteration joke, but I bet some animation writer saw this and made the connection, “Oh, those are the top two things the Turtles are into, ninja moves and pizza.” So there you go: the Ninja Turtles’ famous obsession with pizza came from a semi-anonymous fan.
