Return of the Tmnt Summer Shorts
 
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.

Boooooooooo.

CyberCubed 10-03-2017 08:43 PM

They should make a whole short about gangsta rap Krang:

Raise your arms in the air like you just don't care!

Holla! Hollaaaaaaaa!

Is this your way of dealing with grief?

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:

Chris 10-04-2017 01:54 AM

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.

Kit31 10-04-2017 04:17 AM

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:

IndigoErth 10-04-2017 01:52 PM

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?

IndigoErth 10-04-2017 03:22 PM

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.
