The 2003 show is high on my personal list, if not my very favorite incarnation of TMNT - I'd love to have a framed animation Cel from it but haven't been able to find any info. Has anyone else had luck looking into this?

I would be surprised if the whole show wasn't done on computers.

Pretty damn sure it was.

Nickelodeon's probably got everything in storage bins out in the garage. Hope they're in water proof bins that won't get damaged if water ever makes its way into the garage during a storm.

4kids was created digitally and colored digitally. The only "cel" I've seen out there is a promotional one, sadly. It would be a fun series to collect cels from.

Thanks, all! I feared that may be the case given that my searches came up with nothing. It's is a shame, I just rewatched the City at Wars eps and there is some killer action in those especially I would've loved to have on my wall!

There is notable traditional art from the show out there you could scoop up, though. I've met various guys who worked on the series at conventions & seen it in the flesh. Background sketches, promotional/concept art, DVD covers, etc. I got a one-off lithograph of Leatherhead's lair from Denny Fincke some years ago at NYCC, myself. Look up the various production artists, see whose stuff you like most, & hit them up on social media. It's worth a shot if you really want something. Khary Randolph, who now has done an issue of TMNT for IDW, did a lot of the promotional/DVD art, maybe contact him & see if he's got any old turtle pieces laying around.
