But higher ups try to cover the ears of others.
Love this episode!
My question, is do animation cels of these episodes still exist, or were they all thrown away? I heard animation cels are going cheap now a days, but that could just be the Japanese animated ones (which have a history of being cheap).
Hopefully this doesn't anything bad for the animation industry.
Is the voices of the animation Fraggles the same as the puppet Fraggle?
nope, there diffrenet actors. one notable one was rob paulson, who plays boober in the animated show. you might also know him from animaniacs as Yakko, and Pinky from Pinky and the Brain
Yes, I love Yakko.
I'm pretty sure Townsend was Leo, not Mike, in the original TMNT toon.
Also, Rob was the best part ... though I did enjoy Pa sounding like a bad Rowlf. Matt was pretty good, too.
I think I know what mainly weirds me out, besides the VA's and the sense that not a lot of effort went into writing ... the Rock seemed so empty. In the toon, they could show FR and the Gorg's garden what it would probably look like without the muppet-version forced perspective. The Garden, especially, seems way more spacious -- but it would to us, who are incredibly small. However, muppet FR is chock full of Fraggles, Doozers, weird creatures, etc. Animated FR (at least the ep that's on youtube) ... seems almost vacant by comparison. I understand it'd be a pain to draw all the inhabitants ... but ... still...
Ahem... WRONG. Townsend Coleman WAS Mike. Leo was played by Cam Clarke. Trust me on this. I have TMNT curtains in my room.
I trust you. But whats TMNT?
God, you're right ... Cam is now Simba, etc. SORRY!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Whilst Townsend was Mike, Rob was Raph.
Totally rad, indeed.
And just so I don't leave him out, Barry Gordon ("Junior" from the Snorks) voiced Donatello in the original TMNT cartoon.
And let's not forget. When Barry Gordon was unavailable, Donatello and Bebop were both voiced by Greg Berg... better known as Baby Fozzie, Baby Scooter, and animated Strangepork.
It's ironic that the animated 80's TMNT used a lot of VAs from Henson's various animated incarnations & that Henson's Creature Shop incidentally created the costumes for the first three TMNT films.
That is cool allso!
And in an ever bigger connection, the Henson-made TMNT MET the Power Rangers (BEFORE the Disney buyout of Saban's ownership over the franchise) in a crossover episode!
Ugh. The Henson-made turtles died out with the second movie. The third movie was okay. Saban's POS TMNT, however, should have been called ... "Teenagers in Bad Turtle Halloween Costumes". Making Shredder as effective as Lord Zed was excruciating.
So, while Saban's TMNT is BASED on MOVIE-continuity, they are in no way shape or form Henson costumes.
Separate names with a comma.
