The news that a big-time Director Michael Bay is going to re-make a classic cartoon into a Blockbuster hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles should be cause for extensive celebration. It's Bay's suggestion of throwing those reptilian-roots out and turning Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello into aliens that's got anyone who was made in the 80's all bent out of shape!

In fact, some TMNT fans are so upset, they're saying "screw the whales...save the turtles!" Starting online petitions asking fellow turtle-lovers to sign the pledge....keeping their fake, talking, pizza eating, crime fighting, rat-loving turtles the way God intended! In their shells!
