As I'm sitting here watching the movie with my son, I began to imagine when I was kid watching the original series. It's a dream come true to see how fun and exciting they merged the universes, going back and forth attempting to defeat Shredder and his villains. I try not to overkill by watching too much, but when I do, I always feel nostalgic.

Anyone else enjoy this film as much as I do? I have all the movie comics, I wish they did one for this film. It also would be pretty cool if there was a live action version, or a storyline similar in the future.

Please, delete this thread as soon as you read my post. Trust me, discussion of it will only lead to people bitching about the "unfair" treatment of cartoon characters, you don't want that.

They did?

It also would be pretty cool if there was a live action version, or a storyline similar in the future.

I think a live-action version would be a pretty awful idea. It might have been neat if the 1-3 movie Turtles showed up in the movie, though, for a few scenes and it'd be like... reverse Roger Rabbit or something.

How true.

I like separate toyboxes and generally loathe crossovers.

I do not like Turtles Forever, Sam I Am. :trazz:

The unabridged version of that cartoon is some of the greatest fan-service ever created, and I love it unconditionally.

And I will slake my thirst on the salty salty tears of people who speak ill of it.

I don't think that will happen since the OP is not asking about that and just sharing a personal experience. Anyways, despite my complaints about it, I still love and enjoy Turtles Forever. As someone who grew up with 4kids and later started watching FW, the nostalgia was pretty intense and just seeing the two worlds collide was fantastic.

I have only seen a few of the 4 kids shows. That said I liked this movie. I hope they do more like this as more TMNT shows come out. I think it is fun to see the different versions interact.

You're in luck, because we're getting another big crossover soon.

For real? More Fred Wolf worship in the Nick show?

I wouldn't call the last one "worship". Even if that's exactly what their nostalgia-zombie fans did.

Fun Fact: There's a Tiger mutant in the background towards the end of the movie where all the mutants were out in the open, and he looks similar to Tiger Claw but pre-dates him by about 4 years.

Yep, love Turtles Forever. It was a great way to end the series and a really nice end to the whole Mirage Studios era as well. Loved the Kevin & Pete voice overs at the end with the comic art.

Turtles Forever, will forever be the entity to set the fire to light the torch on these crossovers on TV.

I love it too - I bought the cut version and also imported the UK uncut dvd too since I loved it so much.

While it's not perfect, it's pretty damn close.

I had a lot of fun with this special and I really appreciate the attention to detail with the animation. Most notably in the FW world and of course, all the multiverse looks we got. I actually went and looked up the few I didn't recognize after the special.

I've always been a fan of crossovers in general so this was really a treat to watch. Given that I enjoy both the 2k3 series and the FW series, it was neat to see them interact with one another and I like how in the final battle, each of the different sets of turtles had something to contribute, it was just in their own style.

Turtles Forever oddly brought me a sense of closure to my die-hard fan sensibilities. It was like, as soon as credits rolled, I felt like my era of TMNT was over, and I was able to let go and loosen up for whatever the future held for the franchise.

Soon after was the Nick sale and the PD movies... I would have been a lot less open minded about them had it not been for the sense of closure Turtles Forever gave me. I'll always have my TMNT, which begins with the Mirage Comics and ends with Turtles Forever. Everything after that (the Nick toon, the PD movies, the IDW comics...) I'm pretty lax about "getting it right."

So yeah, I'll always be grateful for Turtles Forever. It was the final chapter I didn't know I wanted :)

This is pretty much how I felt! Thank you for sharing

I still have a soft spot for that crossover; it more or less redeems Back to the Sewer and the worst aspects of Fast Forward.

Slick character/environment designs all around, a surprisingly cool story, and one last roundup for the 4Kids gang. The only thing I could almost see as a flaw is not having the original FW vocal cast.

The treatment of the 80's Turtles bugged me, but I don't think it was a bad movie overall. My favorite incarnation is the comic version so watching them dominate the 80 and 2k series put a smile on my face :)

Agreed. I loved the scene especially where 2K3 Raphael falls in love with the Mirage Universe but then the Mirage turtles put him in his place.

This movie speaks harder to me now that some time has passed and we can look back on that era of tmnt being truly over, with some perspective.

I still don't enjoy watching it, or even think it's partciularly well done, but it is a nice idea for longtime fans and the ending with Peter and Kevin is a great touch.

I have nostalgia for this for plenty of reasons, I actually saw this movie for the first time overseas bootleg DVD. I didn't even know if was coming out due to limited access to the internet (I was just finding out about the Nick Turtles too). Not to mention I did grow up with the FW cartoon and did enjoy the 4kids Turtles (until the later seasons went off the rails). Plus for me it was the first time I saw an incarnation of the TMNT reference a multiverse for the turtles.

I watched it again recently and I think it's still a good film. Didn't like the way the 80s Turtles were portrayed but thought their replacement voice actors were decent enough. It was nice to see the 80s cast again for the first time in decades and awesome to see the Mirage Turtles in animated form. It was a great love letter to fans.
