Seriously, I don't know what to make of this promo. I can't tell how many shorts there are actually going to be, I can't tell if most are just cheap or rushed, I don't even have a clear idea of what some of them will look like based on the footage (how is that even possible?).

Looks like these shorts will consist of different artists, and mixed with some live action shorts.

Nothing to take seriously at least, I guess...

I've moved my reply from S5 thread to this one because I didn't know there was already a thread about it:


I tried to compile all the scenes in their respective “short”:
Spoiler:





But to be honest, with the last picture I’m not sure if those scenes are from the same short or not ….

But we’ll have at least 6 new shorts

In the first one, why does Raph have a double chin and why does April(?) look like Lars from Steven Universe?

Nickelodeon

So this is what Nickelodeon will focus time and money on these days rather than the ordinary episodes?

Very MADtv-ish. I actually felt kinda bad for Baxter. Leo's voice reminded me a lot of Cam Clarke.

Hmm, I guess there will be another short in this same style since we didn't see everything from the preview images.

One of the images looks like some town in the southern parts of Italy.

What is the point of any of this really? It's all quite ridiculous. Having lots of animated shorts in different styles isn't a bad idea per se but why do 99% of them have to look like garbage?

They look exactly the same as most Nick and Disney current cartoons. They're all animated in this style that looks like flash, with the flat character designs and thick outlines.

This has been the state of the cartoons for a decade now, with few exceptions like Avatar/Korra, Young Justice, etc.

No... The ugliest that might pass for one of those shows is the one where Krang is waiting in the pregnancy ward, above that there are only two that would look acceptable as a full series. Everything else looks really badly animated.

That was amazing. I'm looking forward to this. I hope the 2018 show is like this. This franchise is headed in the right direction. Onwards and upwards from this point!

[Note the sarcasm]

These are not "rushed", I'm sure they all take a great deal of time to make, just because you don't like the art style doesn't mean they are lazy. Many companies have done shorts like these where they try different art styles and it's cool, of course some art styles work better than others and some you wish would become real series and others you're glad they'll only ever be these short films. DC Nations, Tomb Raider Revisioned, Batman Gotham Knight, The Animatrix among others have experimented with stuff like this.

I think these will be fun, I don't know if they'll be 5 minutes, they might be shorter since they'll be posed on facebook and not youtube, also there seems to be a few more shorts than last year where we only got 3 so I'm guessing around 2 minutes each is more likely.

Probably about as much fun as this, anyway:

Eeeeeeeh... To be fair the one where they're on a train cart looks like it might be OK and the one with the robot turtles at least look acceptable in terms of style. Everything else though... Yeah, looks more or less like Murphy's law...

People have every right to voice their distaste for it just as much as others have every right to voice praise for it.
