I never thought I'd see the day where the point was driven home on exactly why you can't just play the "TMNT is just for kids" card all the damn time, but lo and behold, here it is.

Just because kids today like fart jokes and quick cuts doesn't mean everything needs to be that way. Kids are impressionable. They're going to like depth and meaning if they're exposed to it. Unfortunately, current animated TV doesn't have much of that anymore, and would rather play the sugar-high card on everything. It's infuriating, but hey, that's demographics for you.

Even though Avatar: The Last Airbender was arguably the last insanely successful kids' show as of now (barring Teen Titans Go).

I mean, you give these people logic and they won't listen. Then you watch as your logic becomes fact and it hurts a franchise you like, and you did everything you could but it was unfortunately not enough. If Viacom keeps treating TMNT the way they are right now, then it'll end up just as forgotten as Butt Ugly Martians or Kung Fu Dino Posse. And that's bogus.

Steven Universe, Adventure Time, ,Star wars rebels, Gravity Falls, and Star vs more or less fit that mode hell Amazing world of gumball and Loud House are comedy shows and even they can bring emotion better than TMNT 2k12

But back on topic I'm still skeptical of this series ending but if season 5 is the final season then good. This series had such promise during the first season but bad writing, waste of characters, horrible scheduling, and the toyetic nature of this series ruined this incarnation for me

Yes, but I'm talking about the majority of television aimed at kids. Hell, Star VS The Forces Of Evil, Gumball, and Loud House, though I like them, are still very sugar-high and are kinda part of the problem. Hell, if I'm not mistaken, Adventure Time was the show that started the whole sugar-high phase, being the only show in your list that actually got wildly popular.

I would't call Gumball or Loud House super high but I do agree with Star however despite all of them being comedy shows they are still write better emotion scenes then this incarnation

Wasn't Gumball recently cancelled? Besides reruns, what the hell is Cartoon Network gonna air now? Last I checked, Gumball is all it ever seems to air whenever I glance at it.

Kung Fu Dino Posse sounds cool, I'm always down for anthropomorphic reptiles, like the Dinosaucers cartoon.

No there was only 1 mini series where i travel to Gotham and join forces with Jokee Penguin Mr Freeze Riddler e.t.c It was 6 issues. Batman is not near as popular and succesful as tmnt is. Yes he has lot of carttons but most of them did so bad that they ended in season 1! Only his current show Gotham seems to be doing well ( and i like it enough season 3 episode 1 of it started yesterday by the way). Movies? He has about as many movies as TMNT has . As for his Arkham games? They are great but as someone who plays and emjoys evry action adventure, fps , tps(third person shooter) hack n slash fighter, and action rpg game for about 2 decades now i can say that they dont realy offer something that we havent see in others similar games to them. They are good but nothing realy special . He will never beat me in popularity and fanbase. I and my foot ninjas are a lot more popular than the stupid and powerless villians like joker that he is fighting.

He's our version of The Joker. I mean, he's definitely got the insanity down.

I liked Gotham until they offed Jerome who was supposed to be The Joker and then I got tired of it.

Trust me, if you want to keep some brain cells, I'd highly recommend not watching that one.

And Gumball wasn't cancelled. It brings in a lot of CN's ratings. The show was ended on the creator's own terms. In its place will probably be more Teen Titans Go reruns

There was another cartoon I watched back in the days called "The Adventures of T-Rex"

They were a group of dinosaur cabaret singers that would become superheroes.

He had more cartoons of which lasted more than one season (sans Beware the Batman) and a lot more movies than TMNT. Quit spouting nonsense!

Word, stick with Extreme Dinosaurs. It's decent & has 2 or 3 of the VA's from Next Mutation.

I loved this show when I was a kid. Almost hard to believe this was actually a Japanese anime.

Or you can just watch Mr. Enters animated atrocity about it and be glad you missed that bullet.

Three.

Ghostbusters and X-Files. The X-Files were boring because Mulder & Scully weren't involved directly with them, instead we have a bunch of Mulder's nerdy friends -wtf. Ghostbusters crossover was nice though.
