View Full Version : If it was a sitcom?

So considering how Nickelodeon initially wanted a sitcom and Rise may very well end up being that, how do you think the show would have turned out if it ended up being one? Better? Worse? Not that different?

It would essentially be this then:

It would be something different and new for TMNT.

Well, "Pizza" isn't that different from "Waffles"...

Not quite and you know it.

I think it would've been worse since they woudlnt have been able to tell a serialized story in the Nick show if it was an episodic sitcom.

I doubt they would have had the 'random for the sake of random, who cares if it's funny or not it's RANDOM' humor TTG has.

I honestly think a sitcom wouldn't fit the TMNT style at all. If they did this, I definitely would never watch it.

It wouldn't be doing the franchise any favors, that's for sure.

It would surely be a disgrace to the franchise.

Of all three cartoon incarnations, I like the 2003 series best over all because, in part, of the darker tone of it, but I think the 2012 series definitely had the edge with the right balance of comedy and drama. They weren't afraid to let tragedy into the series, and then in the next breath have Mikey or one of the Foot mutants do something ridiculous - and it worked well, too (for the most part). I would prefer that Nick stayed far away from making a whole sitcom series. I think it would discredit the brand some, IMO.

So I take it the prospect of Rise potentially being a sitcom is one you don't like then? Or do you think they averted the damage by not having this particular one as a straight up sitcom?

I wouldn't mind if Rise looked like the first short to be honest. It's cartoonish without being too silly or chibi looking.

I'm more of a fan of "Don vs Raph." I loved Invader Zim so the writing and art direction were perfect for me. I think the Workaholics guys, being TMNT fans themselves, made for a good cast, too.

The original series sometimes make me think of sitcoms, probably because of the couch. :)

Objectively, I think it could work, but personally I think it's a shame because I want TMNT to be taken more seriously. I want the plotlines to be more emotionally intense, really character focused and serious.

However, I know there has been some good comedy with the turtles, I just would prefer it to be a little injection in an otherwise serious storyline.
