Considering how the Fred Wolf cartoon still belongs to Fred Wolf and Next Mutation still belongs to Saban, I'd say it probably still belongs to the producers who made it. BTW, the same goes for the 90's movies.

I'm pretty sure the only things Nickelodeon bought was the back catalogue of comics and the 2003 show.

Next Mutation still belongs to Saban. Distribution rights to the Fred Wolf cartoon belong to Lionsgate but I do think Nick owns some rights to the cartoon.

No, they don't. They can use as a basis for new material, maybe even produce a shot for shot remake if they wanted, but they can't claim a dime on any profit made from re-releases.

Neither Mirage Studios nor Viacom, the current owner of the franchise, own the rights to the 1987 television series, so Lionsgate and Fred Wolf are not under any obligation to inform them of future releases.

The TMNT anime was never even dubbed in the U.S. back in 1995 when it came out and the Fred Wolf show was still on the air. If we didn't get it released officially back then, obviously now we never will.

Sorry to bump this old thread, but I just watched this anime for the first time and wanted to post about it.

It's actually really good! It's pretty obvious these OVAs were just made to sell those toys, buy they managed to make a couple fun and interesting stories. These were some very humorous episodes that I actually found funny.

I also found myself attached to the characters of Crys-Mu and Dark Mu. They were interesting additions, but it stinks they didn't have better introductions other than the little blurb at the beginning. They should be used in another iteration.

Kinzou Hattori was also a cool character.

The interactions between Shredder and Krang were also hilarious.

The mixing of FW and traditional anime animation made for interesting visuals that were well executed.


Overall a cool and relatively unknown part of TMNT history, that I ended up enjoying a lot.

You'll probably enjoy the manga series, if you haven't already seen it!

Yeah, I've seen those various manga series, but never actually dedicated the time to read through 'em. I definitely will now!

I loved them, way more then the FW show (Yes, I don't really like that one, guss it's just not my kind of humor ), loved Krang and how he treated Saki, loved the new forms (they are some of my favorite figures from my collection, especially the Saint Seiya rip-offs and their transformable armours, and lets not forget the amazing intro by none other then Hironobu "Dragon Ball" Kageyama.

All in all I would love for a whole show of this, it's bonkers sure but I think it would work really well.
