Which other TMNT characters can have their own television series

A Star Wars film about Han Solo has just been released. This makes me wonder:

Which other TMNT characters do you think can have their own television series (probably a miniseries, set before or during the main-adventures of the turtles begin)?

Would have been really interested to see Murphy’s Mighty Mutanimals cartoon that never was. I think a modern day adaptation of IDW’s Mutanimals would be pretty keen too.

I would prefer such a series to be set in Brazil, for some exchange.

I'd like a show set in Dimension X, showing us everything about that world and the struggle between the Neutrinos and Rock soldiers.

The main cast of the 87 show would only make occassional guest appearances.

It could also be a nice way to directly show us Krang's backstory and visualize all of the plot points only mentioned in the 87 cartoon (such as Krang betraying Beserko, making his Rock soldiers from mutagen, meeting Shreeka etc.)

Not sure about the name but this is what I want most of all, even more than a Casey Jones series.

Use the Ninja Assassin formula, to cut between the past & modern day. Show both the Foot Clan's origins (& Saki/Yohi's arcs) as well as what they're up to now, as a Yakuza crime syndicate with home base in JP (where we occasionally cut to see Karai's dealings) & an American outfit in NY led by Shredder. You can tie in themes of mysticism & spirit quests in the days of old, gun-running & business fronts in the present, & in both feature staples like extortion, training montages, espionage, etc. across the ages. You could have an episode where one of their missions is nearly thwarted by Casey Jones, another where they overtake a neighborhood previously run by Purple Dragons. Toss in the occasional turtle tease along the way with a small appearance in the season finale or something. Like perhaps an over the shoulder view of them on a roof-top, seeing The Foot for the first time, or conveying that they've been monitoring them for a while now.

No Bebop & Rocksteady, no Krang, no meddling about in matters of science, just purely Japanese ninja/Yakuza badassery.

I think an April O'Neil series based on the original series.

It would be set during season 2, when April is working at Channel 6 and has to deal with Burne Thompson at work, and trying to first hide what she knowas about the turtles for Irma (before "Catwoman from Channel 6"). We would see more of her aunt, and some flashback scenes from her girlhood years.

But a series set in Dimension X, with clashing spacecraft and the wars between Krang and the Neutrinos, would also be cool.

This would be awesome, but I'd like it even better if it focused just as much on Yoshi and/or Splinter and served as a TMNT prequel.

Of course, then it might become "TMNT Gotham" and I'm not sure I'd be into that. A TMNT (or Batman) prequel sounds fun, but not if it's just "TMNT minus TMNT" (or Batman minus Batman) .

The Mirage Utroms have a cool enough story that I'd like to see a story focused on their adjustment to life on Earth. Making their exosuits, trying to stay in hiding during that time, figuring out how to blend in properly, how they even managed to make an entire building or how they managed to prove they were humans that always existed. Then there's the sideline of how they coped with being stranded away from their home and families.

Xeinos and Leatherhead would eventually factor in. There could be Rikby having to deal with the truck going out of control - nearly killing an old man and causing catastrophe with losing the mutagenic ooze.

In that case I'd just recommend adapting one of the IDW mini's. Karai's Path, Secret History, Utrom Empire, 3/4 of the Micros and several issues of Universe aren't really about the Turtles. You could even combine certain parts if it seems a little light on content.

Yeah, that could work.

Once again going for the Foot. Could provide their earliest origins, like... Jomon period and before. Elaborate on the Oroku bloodline and other bloodlines of the Foot (Lin? Cha?), and the Hamato and Tang bloodlines before the tragedy. And their magic, mysticism, and wonder, to present a three-dimensional image of the Foot that was only recently clouded by Frank Miller’s image of heartless assassins.

I could see Cudley and the Battle Nexus being the basis of an MST3K-styled Special. Have them sit down to the PD films and comment. Mutanimals would make a nice tv series too. Perhaps have it be a contrast to Rise in tone and mood yet being in the same universe?
