It was funny sometimes, but I enjoyed the dry humor a lot more as an adult.

I'm sure I laughed a lot watching the show as a kid. I know I definitely laugh watching it now. Raph, Krang, and Shredder's one-liners have definitely struck me funny more than once.

I do rather enjoy Shredder and Krang's jabs at each other... Not that I can think of any right off the top of my head, but yeah.

Yep, that's why I could never get the humour of the 4Kids series. Any sporadic attempts at humour were cringe worthy and really unfunny. I'm not sure but I'm guessing the Nick show is like that as well?

Yes you don't like the Fred Wolf series, we get it already.

That was great! Even at the time I thought that was funny!

I mean the writers knew what they were doing. They knew how ridiculous these situations were but they just went with it and some of these results are priceless like the Casey scene mentioned above. The humour was always a very underrated part of the series.

Any TV show does a good job if it can create a good balance between the differing elements.

This desperately needed a "sometimes" option. FW TMNT could go through a lot of different styles and quality levels, and the humor is no different.

Irma

Irma was great in one episode when she said something about she was not a pickup girl.

I don't remember that episode, but I thought Irma said a few good one-liners in the episode "Convicts from Dimension X."

Or maybe Donatello's Badd Time?

I would have chosen "rarely" myself.

It at least has the best humour of all three animated TMNT series yet existing.
