This is kind of the reason why Stan Sakai chooses to not have Usagi have his own show on any other media. He doesn't want his character to be kiddyfied or made 'cool for the kids' or whatever. Eastman embraces the Turtlemania, Peter regrets selling out.
All I know is, if someone wanted to offer me the kind of deal with my self-published property that the Turtles ended up with, I'd take it in a heartbeat!
