As a kid I was absolutely obsessed with TMNT 2... I remember I found the first one too dark, particularly the long middle sequence where they're hiding out in the cabin.
I love the first movie now, but as a kid my favorite was also the second one. I can't remember why, but at the time I thought it was really cool that the Turtles didn't use their weapons all the time, that they improvised with what they had, to me that just seemed cooler than always pulling out and using their weapons.
Of course years later I realized it was because they were trying to make the movie less violent, but as a kid I loved it. Even when I played Turtles with my figures, I never had Mike use his nunchuks.
