In Enter Krakus it was said that April was going to be famous in the future. She should have gotten a lot of attention, not just from her stories with the TMNT, but also with Dregg, since she exposed him.

Wouldn't exposing a warlord who was thought to have been benevolent make someone pretty famous? I always wondered because Krakus said she would be well known, and this act alone should have made her famous.

My understanding is that April became at least more well known as a reporter after The Big Blow Out.

Sounded like she becomes famous after the events of the show ended.

For what it's worth, in "Once upon a time machine" we see a 70 year old April still as a reporter, so I guess he never retired. :lol:

She saved Krakus's father somehow. Maybe that's how she got famous. I wish they had explored that more.

I wonder if Chronos/Winston Fripp was his dad and the fact that she was the one who originally figured out who he was and got him the help he needed after exposing Dregg.

Always wondered if Channel 6, in the series, was aviable all over the USA. We never came to know.

That would make sense given why she went all over Europe on assignment at the same time as the Turtles.

I figured Channel Six News must have been the equivalent of our Chicago's WGN.

Chicago's WGN.

Is that something you can only see in Chicago and nearby neighbour-towns?

It was definitely local broadcast news, but being in Manhattan, it was a more glamorous reporting gig than most other non-cable news channels.

No, it's a local Chicago station that broadcasts local programming yet is broadcast all over Canada and the US. Not a network, just a Superstation.

But shouldn't they have a supertall skyscraper then? I believe Channel 6 is the local New York City or New York-part of a giant TV-channel (and maybe also radio) which covers all of the USA (with different names).

Burne Thompson must have owned many stock market shares since he had much power, but there was still one episode where we saw someone superior to him.

There was a broadcast tower on top of the Channel 6 building.

Probably required to avoid the skyscrapers blocking the airwaves sent from the station.

I'm surprised no one asks where Channel stations 1-5 are located. :lol:

But shouldn't April and Irma travel more across the USA more? Actually, that could've been a great sideseason storyline, like the Vacation in Europe. (if we could just've given the turtles some excuses go accomany them, and end up in adventures)

Would've been great to se them visit places like Alaska, California, Florida, Hawaii, Midwest, New England, Northwest and Texas.

Donatello would've been fascinated with the Cape Kennedy Space Centre in Florida. Maybe General Yogure could've returned teaming up with the turtles in some space shuttle-adventure?

Leonardo would've liked being out practicing with Splinter at the peaceful prairies.

Michaelangelo would definately like windsurfing in California, Florida (Punk Frogs teamup) and Hawaii.

Raphael would've end up in trouble with mafia in Chicago.

Maybe a time travel episode back to Chicago 1920, or the Wild West?

Maybe we would also have seen April's family having a farmhouse in Northampton, Massachusetts like other TMNT versions.

Shredder and Krang would've followed them sometimes.

TThey DID travel to Florida in the first Punk Frogs ep. And April vacationed there in another one, I think. They went with her and Irma. There was the one at Niagra Falls with the Technodrome sucking power from the power station there too. And wasn't there one where they went into space on the shuttle? Had to have gone to the Space Center for that one.

Yes they did, but I thought of something more compareable to the "Vacation in Europe" sidesason.
