I Want a Batman '66-Style Animated Movie Based On the 1990 Film


Following the example of the recent Batman '66 animated film, would you fine people be interested in an animated movie (or, better yet, an animated series) recreating the aesthetic of the 1990 live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie? I have to believe the original cast would be pretty affordable.

The styles seem a little incompatible to me.

Yes, yes I would but there's not enough love for this version from Viacom to even happen, sadly. Not to mention legal issues tying those movies up but I'm not sure. Would that effect them making a new series based on this version if they wanted to?

legal and licensing issues aside.

I'd really like to see it. A revival of old and popular incarnations of the TMNT would be amazing. Similar to what DC and Marvel are doing.

Continuing the stories and the shows... YEAH. But at this point in time I'd say its a little too soon. maybe in 5 years.

I actually just had a dream the other day that someone made a beat em up game in the classic Konami style that was based off the look of the 1990 movie....and when I woke up I was heavily disappointed.

I would be completely down for this. I know Josh Pais and Brian Tochi still have a pretty good voice over voice these days but I feel like Corey Feldman has some really bad husky voice (from smoking maybe?) and Robbie Rist sounds pretty older as well, right? I could be wrong...I think the last time I hear Rist's voice was in that goofy Angry Video Game Nerd movie.

Rist voices Mondo Gecko and sounds fine.

I think Feldman's huskiness is put on for doing the voice of Slash.

Probably best to just leave it as is/was.

There is nothing that seems synonymous between the '66 styled Batman animated movie and the 1990 TMNT movie. If anything, something based on the Fred Wolf show. Maybe. I expect it wouldn't make any money and TPTB would again be left wondering, "Wh-wh-why didn't anyone buy it? It's what everyone likes about the TMNT!!!"

F*ck off.

In the wake of "Return of the Caped Crusader," there are talks of an animated Batman/TMNT crossover...

To clarify, I don't want any of the tone of Batman '66. I only cited it as an example of getting an original cast together to do voices for an old property. Like Filmation's Star Trek, but with the entire cast in the booth together.

I want an animated film or series starring the actors form the '90 film, with an aesthetic mimicking that of the '90 film; between Waking Life/A Scanner Darkly and Sin City, I think they could mimic the look of the live-action film relatively well.

I understand what you're saying but the 90s movie TMNT is not THAT different from TMNT now. It just never got into any of the really sci-fi stuff.

It would pretty much be like now except with the look of the 90s movie. I don't really see a point.

60s Batman was very different compared to modern Batman. That was the point of the animated movie. To bring back that retro style.

It sounds like a fun idea. Id like to see someone make standalone TMNT animated movies regardless.

I'm pretty confident that we'll eventuality have a Batman '66/Fred Wolf crossover. Either animated or as a comic book.

How about if it's done as a Broadway musical?

I'm not sure that there is a big enough overlap in their respective fan-bases. There is some, but a lot of Batman 66 fans are pretty old.

Ok just how different is current TMNT to live action 90s TMNT? Excluding the Michael Bay movies of course.

The characters are the same. Themes are the same. Tone is the same. 90s live action just never went into the alien stuff.

The OP wanted an animated movie or series with the look and style of the 90s live action movies. What would be the huge difference besides the look?

If you want it to be in the style of the Batman 66 movie, it would need to be based off the Next Mutation series.

Otherwise, as far as a movie that's in the style of the 1990 movie. It's already been done. It came out in 2007 and it was called TMNT.

I love the 2007 film, but while it matched the tone of the '90 film fairly well, its aesthetic was totally different.
