Captain Planet had a similair episode, The Littlest Planeteer with a young boy following the teenagers on their adventures.

Robin in the 2003 Teen Titans cartoon was also always very popular. I also like Robin in Young Justice.

I think modern cartoons (and by that I mean from the 90's onward, Superfriends Robin was still mostly bad/lame/whatever), learned how to make Robin cool from the start. That's why you can have a 13 year old or whatever Dick Grayson in recent cartoons and people still find him cool.
Because Robin in TAS and the Robin in Teen Titans(2003) always did have a edge to him. I think nothing points that out than the 2 parter in BTAS Robin's reckoning.

Honestly have no problem with April and Casey being teenagers. I mean it changes absolutely nothing. Adult/ Kid. They are still useless by the end game no matter what. But they have being human and "almost adult" going for them which is really all they both need. That's enough for them to be useful allies in the early game.

The only problem I see with them being teenagers is they have parents. And you have to be a bit clever with how you deal with parents. I don't like it when they are ignored completely.

So really in my opinion the age of April and Casey will depend on things like "themes" and how either being an adult or a teenager would help tell that theme or story better.

April was far from useless. She had superpowers. She was able to bring death, and than bring life. She was a God in power level when the show called for it. If she can make people vanish using her mind, and than reconstruct them later, means yes, she could defeat all 4 Turtles, Splinter, and Super Shredder had she just used her powers.

True she had all of those cool powers but forcefully limited in her ability to use them because she wasn't a main character. So in a way she was made to be useless so the Turtles could have something to do.

Looking back, with the way they "Feature" April, I think it would of been for the best for them to have made April a adult.

I mean who watch say the Manhattan Project and not find it kinda of awkward consider April's age with that creepy warm rubbing April's butt in a close up shot? Had April been 18-20ish, the scene would not of been so well awkward. But they did make there own been with scenes like this in regards to April.

I know we're talking pseudo science, but this is some janky science right here.
