2012 TMNT As Turtle Prime?

Appearance:

Would or could this show have benefited from less cartoony designs? What if Ciro Nieli had opted for a more Turtle Prime looking show (like at the end of TMNT Forever)?

Could Eastman and Laird's evolved designs, like from issue 2 or 3 onwards helped this show in any way?

Tone:

What if the 2012 TMNT had the personalities of the Mirage turtles. Or what if the 2012 TMNT show had the less humorous, less campy feel of say, Mirage circa issue 10?

Obviously the show wouldn't work in black and white, BUT what if Ciro had treated this show the way Steve Baron treated the aesthetic of the 1990 movie.


Do yo think it could have worked or would it more or less been a CGI 4Kids series all over again?

If we are talking about improving the show then I think it could benefited from better writing and pacing rather then a change in appearance and tone.

There is absolutely no chance that this would have ever happened. Nickelodeon's interest in the TMNT franchise is to milk the original cartoon any possible way that they can (see attached image). Frankly, I'm surprised that neither the 2012 series nor the Rise series wasn't a virtual duplication of the original cartoon.

I would consider their designs in #50 to be the final evolution.

Yeah. I guess that's true! Would those designs have worked better then?
