It was kind of rhetorical.

And now...they're not the target audience either.
Literally happened once or twice.

I hope they don't hate us. I mean, many of us aren't just first gen TMNT fans, but we're also first gen Nick kids. Sure, it's gotta remain a kid's network, but come on... don't ruin a 33 year old franchise we had first, and don't ruin today's kids from getting to see how great it should still be and why TMNT is awesome. Don't take away the substance.

April? Where? It's more like April playing Megan Fox rather than the reverse it should be. These Turtles don't even know April... They randomly befriended Megan Fox and Stephen Amell.

Wish we could have just sent her to your house instead of the movie set, then it would be a win-win. You get her and the films wouldn't.

Judging by the design of Rise Of The Turtles, yes.

Nickelodeon wants to play it safe, by creating a more kid friendly version of TMNT, the 2012 kind of pushed the boundaries on what they can show on Kids TV programing.

No, it really didn't because shows like BTAS, JL, and The Clone Wars had far worse sh*t and were a lot more popular and well made than TMNT12.

If it was even an issue they could have continued with that short stint of Friday night airings they did, and then put more effort into making Half Shell a real thing for the younger ones.



There was a time when the old show "Round House" on Snick actually mentioned sex back in the day. Before the internet came along and the subject became as open as it is now with tweens/young teens. Was surprising to hear on that channel back then. Nick isn't afraid to push it a little and TMNT is hardly the first, but maybe a better time slot would have sufficed rather than trying to neuter it.

Korra had already gone way over with the way they killed a lot of the characters. The Earth Queen, P'li, Asami's father...

I think I'd actually love a version of TMNT that comes close to Avatar in terms of writing.

Volume 1 atleast. 2 onwards is not for everybody.

The only thing Nick cares about us is the money in our pockets. They don't care about satisfying the fans or creating worthwhile stories, just the profit they can make from 'merch.

Screw them.

Just wondering, how many of us here in this thread who watch 2012 TMNT will watch next year's show?

I'll watch it regardless. I wouldn't dismiss a TMNT show that quickly.

I think there could be an entire SNL commercial parody about a breakfast cereal called broflakes. I picture Andy Samberg in it even though he's not on the show anymore.

The Nick cartoon had tons of on screen death and violence. More than Inwould have expected.

If it's legit like what is being discussed in that other thread and is anything like some of the stupid stuff on tv these days... I'll prob check it out, but I doubt that cartoon style would be able to hook me.

I won't. The art style is... I can't find the word to describe it. It's in its own category, especially when we've had something like the current Nick cartoon.

I'll give a few episodes a view to see how bad it is, then I'm abandoning it in favor of something competent.

I like how you say you want "to see how bad it is" and that you already know you will abandon it.

I tried the Nick show but couldn't enjoy it. I'll give the new show the same chance
