Donatello, also known as Don or Donnie, is one of the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You can recognize him for his purple eye mask and for being ‘the brains’ of the TMNT team. Moreover, Donatello is the tallest turtle and he is a younger brother to Leonardo and Raphael and the older brother of Michelangelo. His best friends is April O’Neil. So, let’s take a closer look at everything you want to know about Ninja Turtle Donatello.
The four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles used to be ordinary turtles who were adopted from a pet store by Hamato Yoshi when they were infants. Yoshi accidentally walked across a strange man, a Kraangdroid. However, he had a strange feeling about this man that he started following him. Unfortunately, Yoshi accidentally stepped on a brown rat’s tail and revealed himself. This led to a fight between the Kraang and Yoshi.
During the fight, the Kraang dropped the canister of Mutagen which caused the turtles and Yoshi to mutate. So, Yoshi mutated into a humanoid brown rat and became known as Splinter, while the turtles mutated into humanoid turtles. Splinter knew that society would never accept them and he decided that he and the turtles would live in the sewers. As Splinter knew that the turtles will want to explore the world when they grow up, he decided to train them the art of Ninjitsu. The turtles were named after great Renaissance artists from a book Splinter read.
