View Full Version : Have you seen every episode of the original cartoon?

How many people here saw all 193 episodes of the original cartoon as a kid?

I managed to catch every episode back in the day, and I'm glad with the DVDs I can refresh my memory of some old eps I didn't see in ages.

I always figured I never saw an ep or two from the old toon, but after looking at the episode lists and the DVDs I realize I saw every single episode at least once back on TV back in the day.

Have you seen every ep of the old toon, or are you waiting for the rest of the DVDs to catch up on the eps you never saw?

Yes I believe that I have.

01-26-2009, 04:29 PM
I know for a fact that I have.

01-26-2009, 04:32 PM
nope. i have not.

I tuned out by season 7 so, can't say I have. I'll see them on DVD soon enough.

01-26-2009, 04:44 PM
I've also seen every episode.

I don't think I saw every episode of the old toon back when it originally aired because I don't think we had cable so I probably didn't see the syndicated episodes unless you count watching some of them released on vhs and I was only 1 year old when season 1 aired. I remember see some or all of the episodes that aired on CBS seasons 4-10. I did see all of the episodes on youtube later on.

not yet but i'm working on it. :D

Most? Yes. All? No. I know there are some in the last few seasons I never saw, and I'll bet there are a handful on the two season three volumes I've yet to buy on DVD.

no i haven't. i only watched on saturday mornings for a few years when i was pretty young. i never saw any of the syndicated eps or later seasons when i was a kid, but i've seen all the eps that are on dvd now!

01-26-2009, 05:12 PM
I've seen them all...though some of them I wish I hadn't :-P

01-26-2009, 06:31 PM
Don't believe I have, but I usually watched 'em when I had the opportunity.

I don't think I've seen any of the last four years of the show. I don't know if it was on at the same time as X-Men, but that might have been a factor.

I've seen all of seasons 1-3.... after that, it got fuzzy. Maybe half of the CBS eps..

01-26-2009, 08:49 PM
I saw them all back in the 80s-90s...I watched it religiously..Now, I'm re-watching with the DVDs. As an adult, I really am not enjoying seasons 4 and 5 very much...

01-26-2009, 11:22 PM
I've seen 'em all. Only about 1/3 of them didn't embarass me to be a fan though.

01-27-2009, 05:25 AM
Yep, taped them all off tv the day they first aired to :)
I've kept them around just incase they don't release episodes on dvd.

01-27-2009, 05:27 AM
Yup, I downloaded all the episodes over a year ago so I could watch them all (I only saw a few when I was younger) :lol:

01-27-2009, 05:47 AM
Not yet. Or if I did, I've already forgotten, but it's not too late to watch/re-watch them all for the first time/again.

No, but I have seen them later.

As a kid I saw all of season 1-3 and then various episodes of seasons 4-7. When I got back into it back in '02 I bought a vhs set of recordings of every episode so I sat down and watched the entire series. Though I'm willing to be very few of us have ever seen all the European vacation episodes uncut. I know for a fact I've only seen 3 of them uncut. In the US it only aired on USA which of course was edited for time. In Canada they aired on YTV uncut which is how I saw 2 out of the 3 eps uncut. Then of course there are the official VCDs that were made in Europe of it. They are extremely rare but I do know one site you can buy them but they only accept Amex credit cards. Before another site that sold them went down though someone bought the Tower of Power one and put it up for download so that's how I saw the 3rd one. Unfortuantely, the other divx encodes of the TMNT episodes are TMHT and are censored in a number of parts for some reason. I eagerly await the season 7 dvd to see if I finally get to see them all uncut.

Nope, but i downloaded all off'em later on. watched the series 3 times in a row, and bought all the lionsgate realesed and nordic dubbed dvds, hope i get some cred for that:D

01-27-2009, 12:24 PM
Sorry for double posting, but.... Did us broadcast show any reruns off the old toon? As far as i know it's stated that it didn't:ohwell:

01-27-2009, 04:14 PM
Well yeah... Of course they did. Are you referring to specific episodes like the European Vacation eps? All reran at least once, just some more often than others.

I beleave I have but I wouldn't remeber.
