Become a Hero in a Half Shell with our new TMNT Tees!

Here we go! It’s the lean, green, ninja team!

For as long as we’d possibly care to remember, we’ve known and loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. From back as kids when we would totally not act out battle scenes and pretend to be our favourite Turtle (Leonardo obviously), we’ve been in love with these crime fighting dudes.

Thankfully, because we have the most awesome job in the world, we get to spend our days searching high and low for some of our favourite things, ready to pop them onto the site for the whole world to see and snap up for their very own. We know, it’s a hard life.

Feeding on our Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo love, we’ve just gotten our eager hands one some amazing new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles T-Shirts that are THE perfect way to show off your inner green hero in style. Take a peep….

Leonardo
The eldest, most disciplined and ultimately the fearless leader of the pack, Leonardo is a force to be reckoned with and is top of our ‘which one would you be’ list.

Michelangelo
On the other end of the scale, we have Michelangelo! The youngest, most enthusiastic and the real party dude in the gang, Michelangelo and his nunchakus are sure to be where the fun is at and will always be there to put a smile on people’s faces. If this sounds like you, this is the t-shirt for you!

Donatello
A real master of the tech, inventor and all round genius, Donatello is the real brains behind the team and is sure to get them out of even the stickiest of situations with his know how. Slip this Donatello Costume tee on, grab a big stick and get ready to rock.

10 Things You [Probably] Didn’t Know About…Tom and Jerry!

Ahhh how we’ve missed these! It’s been a little while since we did our last 10 Things You [Probably] Didn’t Know About…feature. It’s just all gone wild here at TruffleTowers with more and more cool products hitting the store and everyone getting nice and ready for Christmas. Exciting!

So! To kick things back off with a bang, we’ve been searching the cyber-space-web-net for some of the coolest, most interesting and unknown facts about one of the world’s most-lived cartoons, Tom and Jerry!

Taking us right back to our childhood of watching this at home and at school on rainy days when we couldn’t go outside. (Remember the big old TV’s??….scary). Sit back and take a trip down memory lane with us as we teach you some of our top Tom and Jerry facts. Enjoy!
.
1) Tom and Jerry were actually lined up to star in 1988 classic flick ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’, sadly legal smegle issues stopped it from ever happening happening. However! The cartoon team had already featured in live action films before including the 1945 ‘Anchors Aweigh’, when Jerry stole the show in a dance sequence with Gene Kelly!

Some might know this from the Family Guy adaptation with Stewie...
2) The fantastic creators of this cartoon classic – William Hanna and Joseph Barbera went on to create The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, Yogi Bear, Top Cat, The Smurfs and countless others. Imagine the cartoon world without all of these!
3) Tom and Jerry actually got their names from a studio-wide competition to come up with permanent names for the cat and mouse. This was won by John Carr who bagged himself $50 as a reward. Before this chance Tom was known as Jasper and Jerry was nameless.
.
4) Back in 1975, Tom and Jerry actually became friends, proper friends! In a special series, we saw them travel the world competing in sports, solving mysteries and enjoying some good old fashioned bromance. Luckily, it didn’t last.
5) Tom and Jerry had a spin-off! A series called Spike & Tyke was created in 1957 and saw the American bulldog father-and-son team who occasionally beat up Tom! 🙁 Sadly they only released two episodes before the studio was shut down.
6) Sometimes criticized for being what many consider unnecessarily violent, in reality, there is actually no blood or gore in any of the original cartoons and neither are ever seriously injured.
.
7) Thirteen entries in the Tom and Jerry series were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Short Subject: Cartoons. Seven of them went on to win the Academy Award, breaking the Disney studio’s winning streak in that category! Tom and Jerry won more Academy Awards than any other character-based theatrical animated series. Amazing!
.
8 ) Back in 2000, Tom and Jerry was named one of the greatest television shows of all time by Time magazine.
9) Bit of a sad one folks! In the final episode of Tom and Jerry produced by Hanna Barbara Cartoons, the two come to a very bad end when they both take their own lives on a train track. See for yourself
10) Did you know that we’ve got our hands on some amazing Tom and Jerry T-Shirts including our latest collection below! Take a peep…
So there you have them folks! Lot’s of little facts for you to enjoy (or not at some may be). Know any other cool Tom and Jerry facts? Let us know by leaving a comment below.

Thanks everyone!

Exclusive New She-Ra Clothing You’ll Just Adora!

For the honor of Greyskull! Just when you thought our warehouse shelves couldn’t possibly hold any more awesome retro designs, we’ve only gone and packed in even more leaving the rafters fit to burst with some exciting new designs!

This time we’ve been inspired by the amazing retro hero…She-Ra!

Lovingly known as He-Man’s hot twin sister (maybe by the guys here at TruffleShuffle anyways), She-Ra has become one of the most iconic cartoon heroes of a generation. Not only was she possibly one of the most powerful women ever, she lead the Great Rebellion in the hope of freeing their homeworld of Etheria from the tyrannical rule of Hordak, Evil Horde, and later on Skeletor.

With such an all round amazing and classic character, we’re gone all out with our latest designs.

Featuring the Princess herself, this also comes complete with a distressed gold foil embellished print for some extra vintage style and retro points for a great original tee feel like it was plucked straight out of the 80s.

Not wanting to leave anyone out the of action, we’ve put our design on a ladies rolled sleeve tshirt, a men’s style t-shirt and of course a vest for the summer months. Take a peep….

She-Ra T-Shirts

One of our favourite Superhero T-Shirt designs yet, these are the perfect way to show your love for this true icon from only £19.99.

New In From Pinky And The Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain…

Are you pondering what I’m pondering? Wouldn’t it be awesome to have some amazing new Pinky And The Brain designs?? Well…Narf said!

That’s right you cartoon loving people of the world, they’re back and more ready than ever to take over the world! …which isn’t as scary as it sounds.
Ever since the days of sitting in on the floor in front of the TV so close you can hear and feel the static watching the classic Animaniacs toons, Pinky And The Brain have been one of our all-time favourite and memorable cartoons.

With their small world but big plans, we loved their ambitious attitude and their love-hate bromance.

Determined to reach their full potential, Pinky and the Brain follows two captured mice who live in Acme’s research Labs where they have been genetically…ermm…. ‘altered’ to be super intelligent and be able to speak to humans. Normal so far yeh?
The stories follow The Brain’s nightly plans to take over the world, usually ending with things being ruined by lovable simpleton Pinky his not so trusty and clumsy cage buddy.
.
Taking some inspiration from the huuugely loved series Breaking Bad, our latest designs come with an amazing mix of the pizza throwing, meth fueled series and of course the lovable little while critters….a great modern twist of an old skool classic or what! Take a peep at our latest Pinky And The Brain T-Shirts….
