So has no one really uploaded the uncut version anywhere? Seema incredibly easy to rip the dvd. It was even on the 4kids website in full for a while.

You know I think to this day I still have never seen the movie in its entirety. I've only seen it on television or on dvd (which unfortunately IS the tv broadcast). I think the 4Kids upload was the only way to see the entire movie. Remember how it was going to be in the movie theater for one night only, kinda like Batman: The Killing Joke was. It's a shame that deal fell through, I would've enjoyed seeing the move on the big screen.

I've been able to download it by a torrent, which is probably the only way that it can be found these days. Honestly, a lot of the clipped scenes make a big difference when they're put back in place...especially the scenes with Karai.
Namely when she explains how she found Ch'rell, and when he begs him to stop destroying the multiverse.

(I'm still pretty sure Ch'rell was physically ill after being unfrozen. Between being in a block of ice, "overcooked", nerve gassed, put into stasis, and literally broken out of stasis, his little system must have been totally overwhelmed. And because he's an Utrom, nobody noticed and Ch'rell didn't want to say anything about it because of his pride. And it's because of his pride that I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have risked his own existence just to get rid of the turtles.)

To my fellow Americans who are thinking about doing this, please remember that UK uses the PAL format. Region 2.
Unless you have a fancy region-free player, you're going to have to jump through a few hoops to actually watch it.

The Region 1 DVD release of Turtles Forever established just how well Nickelodeon planned to treat the 4Kids series (not at all well!). Fullscreen, TV broadcast version rather than widescreen uncut. It wasn't even cut for censorship reasons (violence or whatever), they just wanted more time for commercials. Funnily enough, I remember in 2009 that CW4Kids ads for the film featured some of the cut content.
I've also heard when they aired the movie on Nicktoons a couple times, they cut out the live-action scene. Nice work, Nick.

Reading over those rules i didn't break anything with this thread.

I simply asked a question. Although i wouldnt discrourage a PM. It just seems odd you cant find it anywhere with how readily available it seems.

The uncut is actually the last thing missing from my 2k3 collection. Have the full series and US turtles forever release on DVD.

So blurred lines, and rules here arent ever inforced regardless. Generally speaking. If we're being honest

Yeah, took me about an hour on the internet to region-break my dvd player. Should probably go ahead and do so with my blu ray players...

The edited version is fine if it's all you know. But it's hard to watch once you've seen it uncut. I wonder why they ever cut anything, even for commercials. Why not just let it run into another half hour block? Was the 11:30 airing of Yugioh or Sigma Six really that important that it couldn't be skipped for one week? Jeez.

I think the idea behind that is kids lose interest in things if they go on long enough. A two-hour movie means less kids will be tuning in near the tail end, which means less kids will be watching the ads than would have been if a YuGiOh were on. Just my guess.

I guess. And I can understand Nick going by that train of thought, but it seems pretty dumb of 4kids to pay writers, animators, and voice talent all that money just to trim it down for the premiere on their own network.

The fact is, it's incredibly easy to make an account on Amazon UK and just order it. The first used seller I checked will ship it to the US and the total only comes to $9 USD, and there are new copies too. So stop whining about how fairly or not the rules are being enforced and complete your collection already.
