If Splinter was April's father and he witnessed the burning of his labratory (as well as the supposed death of his daughter in the fire), there would be alot more weight to the Splinter vs Shredder rivalry rather than just Shredder being a random accomplince to Sachs who happens to stumble upon the path of the turtles.
FredWolf, I am imagining Cubed's face when he wakes up and sees this
I don't want to see Shredder not Japanese either though especially given the character origin. Agreed that they could have had more to them though.

I was new to TMNT (only vague memory of it before then) when I saw these but I remember thinking it seemed at bit weak that their master learned it from a book, and one single book? at that,. not that more books and DVDs would have been a lot better though
