Same here. It started on Fox, but after the first season or so moved to UPN.

Are you sure? I don't remember watching any episodes on Fox. I swear I saw all of them from the start on UPN.

Yes, it is forgotten, under-appreciated, and overlooked. I honestly do not see how anyone could say differently on that.

The 80's cartoon got a complete series DVD set. It is still talked about to this day and it still influences things in this day & age in a huge way (aka the Nick show and Michael Bay films...mainly this new, upcoming one).

The Nick show (understandable since it is currently on) is talked about as if it is the best thing since sliced bread. It also helps that it has more money for promotion (since Nick has more bucks than 4Kids did) let alone the advent of Youtube/etc., which gets people to talk about it in video after video after video (how many internet stars or Youtubers talk about the 2003 cartoon...at least ones that have a giant fanbase ala Black Nerd?). And you even have websites like IGN and such rating every single episode of the new Nick show and calling it 'the best TMNT toon yet.'

The 2003 cartoon? I know tons of folks who would love to see it but they don't care to 'try to find episodes on Youtube, when they could be taken down any day/minute/etc.' or have to bootleg/torrent the thing. Nick has no signs in giving the show a proper, Decent release on DVD. It rarely gets mentioned (for example, it was ignored in the Turtle Power documentary...although granted, a lot of stuff got ignored as well... including the Nick show).

For the majority of folks out there (aka not the people on this forum), no one knows about this show or knows that it even existed.

No one mentions the show, talks about the show, or gives props to the show. The only place is on this forum, and that's it.

The 2k3 series is very well known. It had an extensive toyline and videogame merch attached to it.

Yes, that's true. However, shuriken and I were actually talking about on what channel Fox aired The Fox Box/4KidsTV for us here in the Chicagoland area (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4Kids_...rkTV_affiliate). But thank you though.

^^Wonky channels, 4 seasons in a week, city-wide corruption and a high murder rate. Good Ol' Chicago
But yes it aired the first season on Fox 32 (used to live in the neighborhood called HEART of Chicago so yeah) and during season 2 (or over the Summer before season 3) went to UPN Channel 50. Yup
I still have a VHS recording of episode 7. I believe that had the little fox 32 thing on the corner of the screen.

I wish I still had my season one VHS recordings to check. However, I disposed of them as I bought the releases. I've still got the Back To The Sewer season VHS recordings since it was never released on DVD. But I swear I don't remember any episodes airing on FOX 32. I remember UPN 50 airing all of them from the start.

All the episodes are online...somewhere. Multiple sites even.

If you guys want to watch the show but don't own any of the old 4kids DVDs, you have plenty of ways to watch it.

Kinda sucks not to be so practical to own this show on DVD, though.

Well they did re-air them from the start I believe the summer of 04 (or 03 Like I said its iffy)
But the first season (at least most of it) aired on Fox a part ofthe FOXBOX (along with One Piece, Shaman King, Kirby, Winx, Fighting Food-ons, Ultimate Muscle, Sonic X and Sigma 6) Once they moved to UPN though, they were called 4kids and got rid of Fighting Food-ons and added another anime I can't seem to remember.

The fact that there's still no in-print DVD release for the 2K3 series speaks for itself. The show is super underappreciated.

Simply putting the show on something like Netflix would be a good idea, but there's no way Nick would go with that.

I wonder if your area of Chicago was different for some reason. I found a thread from Toonzone's forums (http://www.toonzone.net/forums/threa...x-box.3226201/) from January of 2003 pointing out how the FoxBox wasn't actually airing on Fox, and that it was airing on UPN 50. This would've been a few weeks before the 4Kids TMNT series premiered.

Back to the Sewer actually was released on DVD but it was only in Australia I believe.

Considering they are taking a GOOD long while to release all of it on DVD, I'd say so.

Hrmm weird. That's so whack though. Maybe my mind is screwing with me, but I remember FoxBox was on Fox for a tiny bit, but the majority of its run was on UPN. (I remember seeing the PROMOS for TMNT on Fox, but the actual show, meh) You're probably right though .
I'll look for the VHS tape over next weekend to confirm my suspicions.

Yeah, I never recall the FoxBox airing on Fox, it was always on UPN.
