Throwback Thursday – Mr. Casey Jones

Mr. Jones

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, I decided to dive into the storage locker and pull out a classic toy from my childhood.  What was I going to find?  A He-Man figure? Some G.I. Joes?  Maybe a mutilated Transformer (I could never figure out how to get them to transform back into their vehicle form.) I did find all of those, but what I brought out was one of the coolest characters of Saturday morning cartoons. I found Casey Jones.


Of all the characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle universe, he was my favorite.  He definitely fit my appreciation of smart mouth characters who were a little rebellious and not 100% squeaky clean, but always seemed to come out on the side of right, even if it involved bending a rule here or there.  This action figure is such fun, from the strange weapons that includes a broken bat and golf club, to the hockey mask.  Everyone looks cool in a hockey mask.

I took Mr. Jones to work today, so you may see some extra photos pop up of a vigilante’s experiences in the corporate world.


Don’t forget to check out the topics on this blog, such as Monday Cinema Club, Bookworm Tuesday, Throwback Thursday and Friday’s Week in Review.

About OxenTrot

During the day, I am a mild mannered desk jockey who helps to manage a large IT company.  At night, I am a family man, who is insanely in love with his wife and a proud daddy to an amazing girl.  But in the pre-dawn hours, as most everyone else is still asleep, I am my alter ego.  During that time, I am: OxenTrot. Ox was a call sign bestowed upon me while I was an active duty United States Marine, mainly in tribute to the fact that I was a major gym rat. After 5 years and three tours of duty, I reentered the civilian world.  My call sign was replaced by my actual name but the Ox still lived inside. As I began to adapt to my new life, I also began to take on new adventures, such as starting a family, getting a “big boy” job and taking on endurance sports.
