: The villain and the teacher in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.


: Bill Dean, president and CEO of M.C. Dean.


: Home schooled plus professional training. “They did great. Two weeks and it’s lasted.”

: Mac, the Australian Shepard next door on P Street.


: “Shredder actually went on a hunger strike as a puppy over kibbles. We had to add the meats. Now they eat a special healthy blend of kibbles and canned meat. They don’t eat table scraps, at least not while I’m watching!”


: “On the floor of my bedroom.”
