    Since this is a TMNT thread I found it appropriate to post this here:

    It's a parody of Teenage Dream by Katy Perry, its called TMNT and it's awesome! It's so funny and well, you only get the references if you're a true TMNT fan (which shouldn't a surprise) Anyway, if anyone wants the MP3 I have it :)

    I watched another episode and I noticed something about the turtle designs. This makes me love them...

    You see, the characters are designed in such a way, they reference past incarnations...

    Raph has a very pointy, angular head... it seems to be based off of the 2k3 design.

    Leo's head is similar, but shorter, looking quite a bit like the 2k7 movie design.

    The next two are a bit tricky...

    Mikey has a round head and freckles. That seems to be an amalgam of the original cartoon series and the original JHC designed movie puppets.

    Don's got a longer neck than the others. The original comic book turtle designs had longer neck, but he has a round head like an amalgam of the later issue comics and the cartoon series.

    When I have the money I intend to get a nice piece of original art of Donny from one of my favorite comic book artists. Haven't watched, read, or played anything TMNT in several months, but TMNT will always be a big part of my childhood.

    It was already confirmed, because the action figure is out... but Metalhead is coming back.

    This NYCC panel releases more info

    Stockman and the Mousers are back (PLEASE be egotistical African American Stockman!), Leatherhead's on the scene again, and so isn't The Rat King.

    I'm VERY excited about this show anyway, but that news is great.

    Yep. Seems like Baxter's an African American guy again. As much as I like Fly Baxter and all, I still hate nerdy white guy Baxter from the old show until he turned into it. Though, I haven't seen the new episode with him yet. Just pictures.

    ^ What did he look like in the comics?

    He was much more like his 2k3 interpretation, but he disappeared in the series quite quickly.

    Pure rubbish. I could barely make it through a whole episode.

    So pretty much, they decided to make a super ADHD TMNT show for the hyper active post-post Teletubbie viewing generation with seriously dated cel shading looking bland cgi? Yeah...as I said, they should have let the turtles die gracefully and be done with it

    This was an unsold CGI pilot of a TMNT cartoon show from 2001. It's funny how the animation was better for cgi 11 years ago

    I just bought the last season of the 1987 series. I watched a few of them last night. I forgot they changed the theme song a bit towards the end. That was back when TMNT were old to me and if I had it on, I didn't really pay any minds. I liked the earlier 1987 TMNT theme song, then.

    Has anyone here seen the very last episode of the 1987 series? I watched the very first episodes like last week. One of the things they wanted to do was make Splinter human again. I'm sure that never happened in the end of that series?
  15. DramaQueenMokey

    DramaQueenMokey Well-Known Member

    I don't know if that happened, but I do know that there was an episode in that series where the turtles make Splinter human again but he returns to being a rat for one reason or another.

    Yeah. Whatever they did wore off at an inopportune moment, leaving the rapidly reverting Splinter to find a sewer to crawl into. Of course, it's all for the best, since the Turtles really needed him.

    And then of course he reverts back to a human in the terrible first NES game.

    I keep thinking, I saw this episode. But yet, my mind is in a fog. Since it's been so long.

    Is anybody still watching this new series? I know the mid season is over just for now. I'm just wondering if anyone is still hanging in there.

    When does the show come back? After It Came from the Depths, there's been no new episodes.

    Other than that, the show has solidly gotten better with each passing episode. And oddly enough, this has the darkest incarnation of Leatherhead yet.

    Not sure when they'll show new episodes right now. I imagine around late February or March. I'm surprised I'm still into it . Despite the poor animation compared to past series . I'm still watching this one.

    Though that Leatherhead is really awesome looking.
