If we're making baseless wagers mine is that this new show will be more Half-shelled heroes, than TTG!

Possibly a prequel to the current toon.

It can't be a prequel since the summary says they'll explore the city and battle mutants. In the first ep of the Nick cartoon they said the Turtles never left the sewers for 15 years.

Sounds like "TMNT GO" to me and that sucks. It's bad enough this stupid channel only still has one good show and that is TMNT(2012). I was hoping it would get a couple more seasons.

The phrase, "lighter and younger feel with more humor" is especially worrisome, since the Nick cartoon was based on humor to begin with.

What is more humor than that besides making the show entirely juvenile or basically being a parody ala Teen Titans go?

Probably not possible. There's really no room for adventures and mutants and stuff before that first Nick episode. It doesn't even sound like they'd ever been allowed to leave that sewer until then.

If not comparing it to the 2003 series. I'm not into TTG, but it's bothersome how people don't seem to get that it's purposely stupid and not meant to compare to the original show.

Ahhh, it's possible I misunderstood. For some reason I thought they too would be younger, and that they'd be exploring the undercity.

I blame the decongestants.

Either way, I'm reserving judgment until I see some character designs and a voice cast.

It'll probably be less violent, like no more cutting off of limbs and things of that nature.

He's probably talking about Tiger Claw getting his arm cut off.

Probably, and then TigerClaw losing a hand.

We can only assume that the show will not have any more of those types of mutilations of characters.

I wonder if the Nick show showing on-screen death and more violence is what prompted this change. Did Ciro step on too many boundaries and get the Nick executives in an uproar?

I've seen this happen to other shows in the past, where the "business execs" feel a show is getting too violent and they try to tone it down and kick the main director/producer to the curb.

You know, that sounds pretty much on point to what could've possibly happened.

There will most likely be toys based on the new series also.

No sh*t. Why do you think they're even making it?

It's exactly what happened with the 2k3 series. That's why Fast Forward and BTTS happened for the last two seasons, to tone the show down a bit from how violent it was getting in Seasons 3-4.

If 2012 Mikey has often been played off pretty childish while he's supposed to be in his teens... I can only imagine what "a younger and lighter feel" show Mikey will be like.

If 2018 comes across super young, then I want the absurd juxtaposition of a crossover with 2003 for the hell of it. TMNT: Adventures in Babysitting.

I wonder why they decided to go the 2D route? is it to cut the cost of making it CGI, which I know can be expensive to make.
