Then I'm calling bull.

This show already has two henchman with a decent amount of intelligence, and there's still a good amount of humor. They have taken the roles of bebop and rocksteady.

Adding bebop and rocksteady with their lack of intelligence and ability to always get in the way would make this show worse. Because this shredders not going to have patience for them and would be completely out of character for him to put up with them.

They need to be different than the 80s toon. Something needs to happen to fishface/rahzar, or bebop/rocksteady need to have a different plot, unless they're all 4 going to be henchman, which may also work

Agreed.

I would find it very hard to believe if Shredder put up with the same type of Bebop and Rocksteady that we got in the 80's cartoon, as this Shredder doesn't tolerate failure.

I don't know why people want an exact copy-paste of everything 80's, but I swear, it's like they aren't happy unless something directly duplicates their childhood nostalgia. I might have some childhood nostalgia, but I have an open mind too, and I'm glad this show doesn't try to be some crappy 80's reboot.

exactly, the nostalgia is from getting the characters. what makes it so great is a new take on them.

fly baxter, rahzar, rat king, slash, mutagen man. none of them are near what they used to be. all new, all different, but they still have the nostalgia to them

Indeed. It what makes these new takes interesting, since we don't know what will happen with them. It's always a surprise, and allows the writers to not be bogged down by a previous incarnation's 'history.'

I personally don't want Bebop and Rocksteady to be dumb. Even though I objected to them in the beginning, this new pair has the potential to win me over, and already the premise looks to be interesting. These two in this show didn't start out as oafs, and I'd love it if they stayed that way. I think it would truly be a let down if they were made stupid as it would feel like just another nerfing in progress, as that was a disappointment with the previous gold star henchmen. I just hope Ciro doesn't look on these boards and think he's gotta make them dumb, because we need some ace characters other then just Tigerclaw.

I agree with you wholeheartedly, except for Rahzar. He's so different compared to his original that the nostalgia for him is completely gone.

Spoiler:
Rocksteady is Deranko and Bebop is Anton. Shredder punishes them by mutation.

I'm still seeing the descriptions on Playmates' site. I mean yeah, I also copied them to Turtlepedia, but might as well go to the source.
