Cerebus the Aardvark # 1
|Teachers and Students|
Cerebus the Aardvark is a character created by Dave Sim. Cerebus' own comic spans 300 issues, from 1977 to 2004. He made an appearance in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles issue 8 (Mirage), where the Turtles teamed up with Cerebus to get the Time Scepter back from Savanti Romero.
- Cerebus is referenced in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, during the Cerberus Mouser boss fight, where Michelangelo comments that the Cerberus Mouser does not resemble an aardvark. This refers to the confusing similarity between Cerebus' name and that of the three-headed dog Cerberus of Greek mythology.
- Dave Sim's 2018 comic book "Teenage Mutant Ninja Cerebi" is a parody of the TMNT using four Cerebus-esque aardvarks - Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Picasso, and Pollock.
