Yes but...
  • Nickelodeon/Viacom owns the original Ren & Stimpy show, not just the characters by virtue of having bought the source material.
  • Ren & Stimpy was always a Nickelodeon show, Fred Wolf TMNT has never aired on Nickelodeon or Nicktoons.
  • Viacom benefits from Ren & Stimpy DVD sales distributed by Paramount and streaming of the show on Paramount+, FW TMNT isn't distributed by any of Viacom's subsidiaries and they don't see a penny from any official release of the show.

It's just weird to label this TMNT cartoon as "Nickelodeon" when it is quite literally the only TMNT cartoon that has nothing at all to do with Nickelodeon, Nicktoons or Paramount. Even the 4Kids show that wasn't made by Viacom, is still owned by Viacom, has aired on Nicktoons and is on Paramount+. It would actually make way more sense to use the 4Kids Turtles and I don't just say that in a biased sense but in one that would make more sense for corporate, if you want to make kids interested in an older TMNT incarnation, why not go with one you can actually profit from?

Ren and Stimpy got their reveal trailer. Including Aang and Korra we are still waiting on one more character.

Idk, technically with the 80s turtles appearing on 2K12 and some of the turtle shorts, and the facts that what's selling now are toys based on the 80s TMNT, Turtles in Time and the 90s movies, I guess Nick is profiting more off of them than say... Rise....

Q&A with the developer CEO who confirms 20 characters at launch with two more being added afterward, followed by additional DLC characters!

Judging by the fact that there have been three unique Avatar stages spotted in footage and that each character has their own stage, our last three reveals for the base game are looking to be Aang, Korra, and a third Avatar rep.

Spoiler:


Which, judging by this possible select screen leak, might be Toph.

Wait, they basically made Ren and Stumpy one character?

It's a shame that there are four turtles and they all look alike cause in games like these they take up 4 slots. Like it's weird them only having 2 turtles but to be honest I'm happier seeing April rather than just Raph and hopefully Shredder than just Don.

Ren and Stimpy was on SpikeTV for a cup of coffee as well, so they weren't exactly a Nick cartoon fully.
