Seriously, I don't know what to make of this promo. I can't tell how many shorts there are actually going to be, I can't tell if most are just cheap or rushed, I don't even have a clear idea of what some of them will look like based on the footage (how is that even possible?).

Looks like these shorts will consist of different artists, and mixed with some live action shorts.

I've moved my reply from S5 thread to this one because I didn't know there was already a thread about it:


I tried to compile all the scenes in their respective “short”:

some of these look amazing - - others not so much.

I love seeing different artistic interpretations of the turtles. Considering a majority of this showcase looks to be 2D, I wonder if this is Nickelodeon's attempt to transition their audience away from the current 3D run, in preparation for newly announced series.

Uhhhh.... What.

I was hoping for something more along the lines of the shorts the '03 series did. (That I guess aired in commercial breaks back then?) This pretty much looks like the kooky little things Nick puts on their website, which "shorts" is prob not the best term for them, imo.

"Live action" being humans in masks and junk... pass. Krang being silly? This out of character stuff would be easier to accept if it was just a small showcase of fan-made weirdness.

A couple of them look cool though.

Nickelodeon reduced season 5 from 26 to 20 episodes, and I'm afraid the 2018 series will become something like these.

I guess due to how popular the 3 shorts were that we had last year, they decided to make more and turn it into a little series.

These are just small shorts that going to last under 5 minutes and anyway these videos will be on Facebook.

These are 5 minute shorts. They have no impact on the production of a main cartoon. These are made by completely different people working on the regular Nick TMNT shows.

Appears to range somewhere between "god-awful/craptastic" and "mediocre." But none of them even seem like they're striving for anything resembling greatness, or even "good." Might be intended to kind of prepare people for whatever wacky, "cray-cray" sort of tone that's coming in the new cartoon.

Not that these are really intended for anyone on this board watching them. Maybe the pot-smokers and mushroom eaters among our ranks.

Yeah, not gonna lie here. One or two look like they belong on Newgrounds in 2008, one is terrible rotoscope and one of them looks like something Nick would cancel after two seasons.

Eeeeeeeh... To be fair the one where they're on a train cart looks like it might be OK and the one with the robot turtles at least look acceptable in terms of style. Everything else though... Yeah, looks more or less like Murphy's law...

They look exactly the same as most Nick and Disney current cartoons. They're all animated in this style that looks like flash, with the flat character designs and thick outlines.

This has been the state of the cartoons for a decade now, with few exceptions like Avatar/Korra, Young Justice, etc.

No... The ugliest that might pass for one of those shows is the one where Krang is waiting in the pregnancy ward, above that there are only two that would look acceptable as a full series. Everything else looks really badly animated.

These are not "rushed", I'm sure they all take a great deal of time to make, just because you don't like the art style doesn't mean they are lazy. Many companies have done shorts like these where they try different art styles and it's cool, of course some art styles work better than others and some you wish would become real series and others you're glad they'll only ever be these short films. DC Nations, Tomb Raider Revisioned, Batman Gotham Knight, The Animatrix among others have experimented with stuff like this.

I think these will be fun, I don't know if they'll be 5 minutes, they might be shorter since they'll be posed on facebook and not youtube, also there seems to be a few more shorts than last year where we only got 3 so I'm guessing around 2 minutes each is more likely.

I gotta agree here.

I'm glad they are making more of the shorts. A couple in my opinion are not going to probably be for me, but there were a some that also looked pretty cool... so it's a little something for everyone to celebrate the series throughout the years I guess. Nothing to get our panties in a twist about.

I'm assuming because the SDCC shorts were popular they went ahead with a few more so let's not judge them too harshly until we actually see them. From what I have read they have nothing to do with the new series premiering in 2018.

I personally loved the short from Jhonen Vasquez... a series geared in that direction would be my dream come true.

THe top paragraph totally. if i didn't think someone stated they are already working on the new toon, i'd say this would be to judge which one of the new 'cray cray' styles is the most popular, and they'd run with that.


But i have no idea who the hell they think this will appeal too.

MOST of TMNT's audience is not into that zany Teen Titans Go style crap animation or attempts at lame humor like the krang in the ward short.

i'm not even sure what that is supposed to be about.. so he touches two bellies....accompanied by a lame stretchy sound effect....ha ha...ha? uhm..ok. lay off the crack smoking nick peoples...and no, i didn't have any trying to write that ;o).

I'm looking most forward to the anime Mecha short.

But my least favourite upon first impressions has to be the breadwinners one, it just looks pure awful. But maybe its meant to be so bad its enjoyable, I dunno. Either way, its just harmless fun to be enjoyed.

The Facebook page confirmed these are not related to the new Rise show in any way.

Wow, I was not expecting this much pessimism to these. Then again, it is The Technodrome forums so I should expect anything less.

I think these look super fun! Some definitely seem more in the style that cartoons are taking on nowadays.

As much as I don't like Breadwinners, and absolutely do not like the idea of the FW turtles being done in their style, I don't mind them being done as shorts just for silly fun.

P.s. I wonder if Kevin Micheal Richardson will do 80's Shredder for the short as a test for his debut in the Nick toon. When 80s Shredder said "Excellent" in the trailer, it sounded alot like the original so I suspect it could be KMR.

Peter Laird literally sat in the passenger seat of my car at the Shellback signoff last year so questioning my integrity about the topic in this thread is a little unnecessary... so yea... it's just my opinion. You don't really need to be a passive aggressive dick. :twink:

Probably on some kids Facebook group for TMNT they'll love it. We're a bunch of late 20s, 30s, 40 year olds around here, largely. All of those shorts look like garbage to me, but I'm well aware they're not remotely for me. But they're still garbage.

Yeah I agree with this, while seeing the red headed fly Stockman bothers me to some extent, I don't think most of this looks good regardless of personal bias. The only ones I think looks OK are the train cart one and the robot one, the rest looks like it doesn't even belong on TV.

Wasn't looking to stir up trouble with my choice of euphemism. I was just a little insulted that having a positive outlook and a let's wait and see before we judge them so harshly attitude got me attacked for no good reason.
I think a couple look like they're gonna be pretty stupid but some are obviously geared towards different audiences depending on what genre/generation of turtles each artist was fascinated/inspired by. I'm definitely more excited to seem some more than others but overall I like the idea of the shorts and seeing different artists interpretations. I hope they continue with them honestly.
Maybe eventually an IDW themed one will get so much fan attention we finally get an animated "adult themed" show. There is enough of an older fan base that an HBO or Netflix show based on the comics would be killer.

Interesting, the current Nick cast is voicing the Turtles in these shorts? I recall in the previous 3 shorts they had all new VA's for the Turtles.

Nice to see the Nick VA's do something else after the current show ended since they probably finished all their voicework for Season 5 by now.

People have every right to voice their distaste for it just as much as others have every right to voice praise for it.

I'm certainly not saying otherwise.

We live in a world filled with delicate snowflakes I suppose.

Is that what we're calling it now?
I thought it was more one person calling a friend out for being an @sshole.

Interesting concepts and it's certainly a fun idea but I just can't get past the animation. I've never been a fan of exaggerated, "chibi", or AdventureTime/Gravity Falls type of animation. I grew up with Disney Afternoon type of animation and I still prefer that style so this isn't for me. That being said though, I think I will give a few of them a watch, because if the voice acting is good, I can still get some enjoyment out if it.

That is sort of how the Turtles would continue their legacy seeing as procreating the normal way isn't really an option. Give or take a few exceptions.

The best they can really hope for is taking on students (Such as street urchins or foster kids that fall through the system) to pass their legacy too. Kind of like how the Fast Forward episode the Future Turtle Titan was the grandson of Silver Sentry but didn't inherit his grandfather's powers, so he took up Michelangelo's legacy as the Turtle Titan as his own.

I liked the fact that Mikey was the wise master in this case. Normally you would expect it to be Leo as he is the one who is most dedicated to keeping the art of the Shinobi alive. In many cases, Leo excels in ninjitsu because he feels it's expected of him as the eldest brother and leader of the team. Both to better protect his younger brothers and to demonstrate what he feels Splinter expects.

But yet, I can also see Leo settling down and becoming more meditative in his elder years.

Raph I can see him leaving life as a ninja behind, instead becoming guardian of justice or a vigilante a la Nightwatcher

Donnie is the only one I see truly retiring from the Ninja life. That's not to say he puts up his bo staff for good. If anything he will still retain the disciplines and practices that he learned as a Ninja. But in many incarnations, it feels like he's destined to journey down a path that leads him away from his brothers.

It's barely connected to TMNT, if it wasn't for Mikey popping up at the end I'm not sure I would have ever connected it to TMNT, I would have just seen it as it's own thing with the colors/weapons being a reference. Still, for it's own thing it's not bad.

I liked the animation style; I didn't mind the voices; the music was appropriate; and I liked the little nods to previous TMNT universe things, such as the mouser head on the desk in the warehouse, and the one kid looking like '87 Bebop. Also, if this is how they're planning to pitch the humour level in the new series, given their whole, "it'll be more humorous," I didn't mind it. I know we have more shorts to come, and they won't all be like this, but this one, for now at least, gives me hope!

Obviously the mecha were inspired by TMNT but i thought it would be an elseworlds type story where here the TMNT were robots and not real and then when I saw the kids come out I thought similarly and it wasn't until Mikey came out that we can confirm that this universe did have a more traditional TMNT team many moons ago.


How many shorts are we getting? I'm guessing 5 or so. So far I liked this one. From last year we had one that I really liked, one that was forgettable and one that was alright.



EDIT:

We need a separate thread for each short, I mean come on, we're a fandom god damnit, we should be giving fanon names to the four mecha TMNT pilots, I mean that's what makes fandoms geeky and fun.

I was a little confused on the feminine voices until the mech pilots were revealed. It was a neat little twist and I have to say enjoyed it, but as a stand alone series I don't think this idea would last too long before it got shelved. It would inevitably become too involved in the "human teenager life crisis" issues with school/crushes/social lives that would take away from the whole feel of a TMNT series and turn it into another "teen super hero/vigilante" thing like Ben 10, Static Shock, Danny Phantom, or the plethora of other series I could name, but with a nostalgic sensei to plug it into the TMNT Universe. (So yea... Batman Beyond) Maybe I'm being too harsh, but as a stand alone episode or short I thought it was great.

It would be cool if they released a little compilation DVD of all the shorts once they're out. I have the ones from SDCC downloaded into my phone and I'll freely admit I've probably watched Don Vs Raph about 50 times now between waiting to get my oil changed and lunch breaks. :tgrin:

Or it could be like Extream Ghost Busters where even though the main focus of the story were the kids that Egon was teaching. There were times where the other Ghost Busters would appear as well.

After all, the end of the short did nothing to indicate that Leo, Raph, and Donnie weren't alive somewhere. At best the Turtles would have all gone their separate ways as they grew older and would have likely established their own team of students to carry on their legacy as ninja in some form.

All four of the teenagers in the mecha turtles story line did have some of the core aspects of each of the Turtles.

Such as the girl who was similar to Mikey was childish, and a peacekeeper much like her Turtle counterpart.

Basque is a pacifist and the smart one of the team like Donnie. He doesn't like to fight, but will if he has to. In this case, he is more of a gentle giant, personality.

The girl who represents Raph is the Leader of the team or has established herself as leader of the team, whereas Raph was more or less was a second Lieutenant to Leo's leadership. And much like her counterpart, she does get into spats with Leo's counterpart.

And lastly, Jackson who is the second in command of the team. Much like Leonardo he is clearly the oldest member and the most dedicated to the teachings they have received.

There is certainly a lot for fan writers to work with here.

There is nothing to indicate the other Turtles are dead. It's more likely that the Turtles all went their separate ways as they grew older, and maybe are managing their own teams of Ninja in training. Or doing their own thing outside of Ninjitsu.

If it could be fleshed into series, they could focus on Michalangelo's team and then occasionally bring one of the other Turtles or their teams into the story. With all four groups teaming up when things are serious enough.

True, but we don't know there fate though, and Mikey was very old looking.

In the Mirage comic it did have the Turtles living well into their hundreds. So with April and Casey and any human friends the Turtles may have had it is likely they passed on. If the Turtles were dead, there could be a subtle reference such as having their masks nailed to a wall in the background.

The only teens mentioned by name are Basque and Jackson. And they apparently use the Turtle's names as aliases in battle since we hear the Raph Mech call Jackson's mech "Leo" at one point.

The unnamed characters in the episode are

Robocop guy is credited as Sargent Swat

The girl who represents Raph is named Frida

And the girl who represents Mikey is named Kusama

And the two Hyena's on Grimm's team were called Jester Joe and Jester Jim.

How old is Mikey even supposed to be in this anyhow? Despite turtle stereotypes, far as I understand sliders don't live any longer than we do and probably less. I imagine the mutant (and possibly slightly human) variety might have gained a lifespan more similar to our own, but come on... lol

If this is Nick Mikey he's like... 93? If this isn't really Nick based (since he doesn't actually look it) and was 'born' in '84, then he more like 106; or 118 if they're already 15 at creation. On that note, maybe his brothers really are gone. :ohwell: I figure they went with Mikey for comedy sake, able to end it on that funny line, but would also make sense for him to be the last remaining being the "youngest." (Although you'd have thought his obsession with pizza would have done him in long before. lol)



Really, if the Turtles grew up and each had their own students, I'd like to see them all training them in their own separate styles - OR other areas of interest.

The short is cute, but I'd prefer they teach others that will carry on the legacy and the Hamato clan rather than actually trying to replace the Turtles via mecha suites or whatever. Let the Turtles become Hamato clan legends, great members, warriors, and teachers who once lead the clan and whose stories would continue after them. Honor them, and strive to be like them, but don't try to be them.

On the positive side though, I like the animation style, I did find myself laughing and some of the voice acting sounded pretty close to the original cartoon. Infact,was that Cam Clarke/Pat Fraley reprising Rocksteady/Casey?

Maybe when the writing was on the wall that the existing Nick show was ending, different groups were selected to "pitch a new TMNT show." Maybe they all created different little shorts to go with their pitches.

We wouldn't see the "winner" because they're already making that one into Rise of the TMNT.

that does seem like the most logical option.

Sadly, it shows they don't have one person in charge with vision. they just take whatever crazy pitch comes there way, and if they think it'll sell toys, go with it and hope it lasts a 100 shows.

Hah... And everyone thought PD was a risk to the quality of the franchise... I think it's had its crown stolen just now.


This is, again, something I'd accept easier as just nonsense fan creations for the sake of being nonsense. It FEELS like just bats*** crazy stuff some YouTube cartoon humor channel would have come up with. It has a vibe more of being like a Robot Chicken-esq skit, if Robot Chicken was cartoon based. It's somewhat funny as one-off stuff that's just supposed to be way off in left field...but don't anyone dare legitimately turn TMNT into anything like that.


As much as I like the animation, it had practically nothing to do with TMNT and is as far away from TMNT as you can get so no, I would not want to see this as a series at all.
Likewise. If there is a "series" of it, I'd rather it stuck to being just a few shorts online. It was really well done and the end was cool, but I would not be interested in a so-called TMNT series that largely lacked TMNT.

That's generally how new cartoons get made. They have lots of different pitches and they go with whatever one they think is the best. Same thing happened when Ciro pitched his idea for the current Nick cartoon and whatever other alternate ideas they had going before 2012.

I have no idea why you're acting like this is unusual. There are tons of different directors, writers, etc. out there who pitch their own take on the franchise.

Appears to range somewhere between "god-awful/craptastic" and "mediocre." But none of them even seem like they're striving for anything resembling greatness, or even "good." Might be intended to kind of prepare people for whatever wacky, "cray-cray" sort of tone that's coming in the new cartoon.

Not that these are really intended for anyone on this board watching them. Maybe the pot-smokers and mushroom eaters among our ranks.

I thought at very least you would like the Mecha Turtles one since it is based loosely off of Road Hogs.

victory_angel
06-11-2017, 09:52 PM
As a franchise TMNT can fill a number of molds depending on the story conveyed and the company involved with the series. In previous incarnations, the TMNT franchise has conveyed dark and gritty action, lighthearted slapstick, heartfelt stories centered on what it means to be a family, dramatic discussions of where one truly belongs…etc. The Turtles have been numerous places from pasts that will affect their beginning, to futures that leave them shaken and dismayed, even present day situations that force them to question who they are in the face of the world.

That is not to say it fills every mold perfectly, there are certainly some incarnations that have suffered not just in their presentation, but their overall execution. Don't think of these shorts or any other incarnation past, present, or future as insults to how you think of this series. They are just harmless fun, but they are also experimentations of other formats for the TMNT to be presented.

The short was annoying but that's what they were going for. Not all shorts are going to be cool, that's what you get when you try wildly different things, some are great some are terrible. Baxter getting crushed by the windshields and the wipers was pretty gruesome.

It's pretty interesting how different the 80's cartoon humor really is compared to the way stuff like this short or other parodies portray it was. The original toon had tongue in cheek and drypan humor, as well as subtle satire. It was never loud or in your face.

I'd much rather have an entire series based off that first short.

Why is the world made up of mutants now? Why are there only four humans? What happened to that one kid's leg? Where are the other turtles? Why is Michelangelo teaching them (and doing the "how do you do, fellow kids?" thing right)? Who would the "chief enemy" be? Since there's mutations, obviously the Utroms are involved, and that can only mean a PR Nightmare in their league of the story. Are April and Casey still around? If so, are they still human or have they mutated? Who made the Mechas?

There's a lot to go on here.

FredWolfLeonardo
06-12-2017, 12:36 AM
I think its plausible that the first short is a alternate future of the Nick toon since Mikey has the same features as his Nick counterpart and is also voiced by Greg Cipes.

I imagine "Turtles take time and space" is also set in the Nick universe.

Maybe Casey's voice has been amplified to sound more like Fraley's but as someone who watches the OT all the time, tell me that Rocksteady doesn't sound exactly the same.

It's a decent impersonation, sure. But it's not Cam.

Although I think it wouldn't be hard to get them to do 1-2 lines since they've worked with Nick before, you're probably right and I just fell for the impersonation.

If it was them, they should've been listed in the credits.

Is this possibly from one of the new shorts?

Not an official Summer Short, but this animation is something I hadn't seen before...

I think that was from a few months ago.

If the animation was better they would've pulled it off better, but the way it is now it looks really cheap. The different versions only vaguely resemble what they're based off of. Kinda gross too, especially if you pause it between mutations. And that PD turtle is really looking bad. :dead:

It's just a promotional quickie done by an in-house guy. Relax.

So I guess tomorrow's short will cover why Krang was in hospital with two pregnant women :lol:

I knew there was at least a second one... Why this style? Why'd this one get at least two?

Most likely to show more Bebop, pizza and cowabunga.

Did the short "Strike Hard" air already in some TV channel?

It aired a week ago on the same day as the French turtles short.

I don't get it, a short was aired that nobody saw? Haven't only 3 aired? The first one in the future, that Fred Wolf parody one, and then that French one? What else aired?

To clarify, there was a 5 minute short called "Strike Hard" that aired on the same day as the French short but it hasn't yet been uploaded to Facebook or YouTube by Nick. The tmnt Facebook page stated it will most likely be uploaded 2 weeks from now.

p.s. Where's the sequel to the breadwinners short? I thought it was supposed to be uploaded today

It will, during the evening US time, around 9pm eastern, I think.

So why would they upload the french short but not the other one, is it somehow even more embarrassing to watch?

CyberCubed
06-25-2017, 04:16 PM
Or why didn't some random teen just upload it to youtube? It's not like someone didn't get it off TV or something.

Just saw TMNT Team-Up: Flora the Fedora.

I like Team-Up, I wouldn't be opposed if there was a Team-Up short after the regular Rises episode when that starts airing in 2018. They're short, silly and funny.

Something about Bebop and Rocksteady gave me Deja Vu when they were laughing at the beginning :lol:

It was what I expected, harmless fun. Mikey being broke and Shredder did have me laughing.
