The tmnt summer shorts have returned, only this time being called just tmnt shorts.

The first one has been uploaded on Facebook, have a guess at what type of short it is:

Yay (wait, no), it only required one guess... >.>

That ice cream pop though... ok, I laughed slightly. Weirdness. o.O

Daddy issues?? Callin' Leo out like that... How rude.

The ice cream was the best part.

Gangsta Krang singing rap like he was "in da hood" with the "bling bling" and the gold necklace on his Android body was my favorite part. And the Android had his chin lifted up to the left like he was "Old school" or whatever they call that notion. Dayum, son, just damn son homie dawg.

Also whoever does Rocksteady's voice in these sounds nearly identical to Cam Clarke's Rocksteady. I mean damn, it sounds almost the same.

Another "Team-Up" short? Seriously? Why are there so many of these?

Anyway, is the "Pancake in Bellybutton" an actual character from something? It seems like he would be.

Each and every time I see a TMNT: Throw-Up! short now, a part of me goes into a blind rage that Viacom cannot control. I strike hard and fade away into the night after seeing anymore....

All seriousness, why more of these are coming out is beyond me. Is it a shoestring budget compared to the other ones? I'd much rather have seen a new short with a different style because after you see one, you've seen them all.

Nah, the Pancake guy is a reference to a guy who went up to a reporter, took her mic a screamed "f*ck her right in the p*ssy". Kind of an odd reference if you ask me. Here's the video if you want to see for yourself.

You guys realize all these shorts were likely produced at the same time, right? They probably ordered like 10 of these TMNT team up shorts at once and they're releasing them one by one.

Mark my words, I've said this once and I'll say it again, this will be the type of "comedy" that Rise of the TMNT will be all about, the style might be different but the sketch approach seems more and more likelly... :tgrumble:

It won't be anything like these shorts. Most likely these shorts were a pitch for a new show that got turned down, thankfully.

Hey I'd love to be proven wrong but the closer we get the tighter my gut gets, like a wise guy once said, "I have a bad feeling about this" :trolleye:

Really wish they'd have a bit more variety with these shorts. Especially since the reaction to the Team Up ones is almost always negative.

I found the "Team Up" ones entertaining (even chuckled a few times), but I can only watch them a few times before I say enough is enough. There are only three shorts in general that I really cared for in this bunch.

1. "Turtles take Time (and Space)" - I wouldn't mind at ALL if the new series had designs similar to this for the Turtles.
2. "Teenage Mutant Mecha Turtles"
3. "Pizza Friday" - this one only makes the list because I liked the concept of the guys being human for a short time. The overall story was kinda "meh". Leo's obsession with his fingers was pretty funny, though. :lol:

If only others, such as the 'We Strike Hard' short, go more... *sigh* Still one of the better ones, even if still not quite what I'd want in a series.



The "Team-Up" ones are something that, say, 2012 Mikey might love. lol

At this point, probably the idea is to immerse people in this so entirely that when we do see the actual "Rise of the TMNT" stuff, "Rise" will look like "The Godfather" by comparison.

I really hope that's not the case. Anyway, including the CC one, this is the sixth one, correct? I'm still perplexed as to why we got so many, were they just comparatively cheap to make?

Hate to say it, but it had crossed my mind. Saturate us with this so the next series will look great? Hope not. Hope it actually turns out okay and doesn't need other things to make it look that way.

Ugh.
We didn't need any more of these.
You'd figure with the negative reception most of these have gotten they'd stop, but nooo. :roll:

I will give that fan-art props though.

It's not fanart, it's actually official licensed TMNT art. You can buy the T-shirt for $20:

Quick, someone on Tumblr ship "Gangsta Krang" in a really undesirable way so it'll stop.

Gangsta Krang sounds like it came from the same minds that created Yo Yogi and Quack Pack. Even if it’s supposed to be ironic, the joke just does not hit. I didn’t expect much more from TMNT: Team Up, though.

Can Viacom just let us know ahead of time how many of these monstrosities there are so those of us who don’t care about this tripe can just... not care? I care about inspired animations about my favorite team of green teenagers. I don’t care about a blatant attempt to copy Teen Titans Go. That’s me, but I’m certain I’m not the only one. I’m sick of clicking on these threads and coming to another one of these. It became real repetitive real fast about four shorts ago.

The fact that he said Gangster Krang was canon because it was on a shirt and a mug:

Finally, I seemed to be the only one asking where the other summer shorts had gone since the trailer clearly showed at least 4 different shorts that had not aired but no one cared :(


I grew to like TMNT Team Up, this one is easily the weakest one so far I think. So we'll be getting a "live action" one with people wearing turtle clothes/costumes skateboarding so be on the look out to hate that one.

Others include one that looked cool and one that has animated turtles in the real world through scenery or something.

Yeah, it was pretty short. pffft
Itís probably for the best. They were getting worse with each one, and Iím sure if they put out any more itíd just be more Team Up.

At least one of them that hasn't aired looks rather cool, the other one looks ok and one looks awful. I still want to see them all.
