Answer: Mutant Animals
1984 saw the release of the first issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a comic book that pastich other popular comic books of the day. The comic was part mutant, part teen, part anthropomorphic animals and part fast and furious ninja battles.
The popularity of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took everyone, including makers Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, by surprise. The first number was a runaway success and the demand for subsequent numbers was huge. Other comic companies hastened to take advantage of the popularity of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by releasing their own pastiches; this time, however, they pasted a pastiche.
In the mid-eighties you saw a series of titles that were clear descendants of the original pastiche, started by Eastman and Laird. Among them were titles such as Pre-Teen Dirty-Gene Kung Fu Kangaroos Karate Kreatures Adolescent Radioactive Black Belt Hamsters and Cold Blooded Chameleon Commandos . Although the first releases of these pastiche comics sold very well, the interest of the reader died quickly and the only title to survive the whirlwind of teenage mutant pastiches was the original: good old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles .
