Revisiting Turtles Forever Film

As I'm sitting here watching the movie with my son, I began to imagine when I was kid watching the original series. It's a dream come true to see how fun and exciting they merged the universes, going back and forth attempting to defeat Shredder and his villains. I try not to overkill by watching too much, but when I do, I always feel nostalgic.

Anyone else enjoy this film as much as I do? I have all the movie comics, I wish they did one for this film. It also would be pretty cool if there was a live action version, or a storyline similar in the future.

Please, delete this thread as soon as you read my post. Trust me, discussion of it will only lead to people bitching about the "unfair" treatment of cartoon characters, you don't want that.

They did?

I think a live-action version would be a pretty awful idea. It might have been neat if the 1-3 movie Turtles showed up in the movie, though, for a few scenes and it'd be like... reverse Roger Rabbit or something.

I like separate toyboxes and generally loathe crossovers.

I do not like Turtles Forever, Sam I Am.

The unabridged version of that cartoon is some of the greatest fan-service ever created, and I love it unconditionally.

And I will slake my thirst on the salty salty tears of people who speak ill of it.

I don't think that will happen since the OP is not asking about that and just sharing a personal experience. Anyways, despite my complaints about it, I still love and enjoy Turtles Forever. As someone who grew up with 4kids and later started watching FW, the nostalgia was pretty intense and just seeing the two worlds collide was fantastic.

Thank you.

I have only seen a few of the 4 kids shows. That said I liked this movie. I hope they do more like this as more TMNT shows come out. I think it is fun to see the different versions interact.

You're in luck, because we're getting another big crossover soon.
