So this Kavaxas character...

...Is basically Mr. Null voiced by Mark Hamill?

Why is this show ending again?

He has nothing to do with Null.

He looks more like Draco from the 2k3 series or Hot Head from the old toyline.

Kavaxas is supposedly the Nick version of the Warrior Dragon who sometimes is called Hothead, In the TMNT Archie Comics he was an Asian fireman who can turn into a giant anthropomorphized dragon, He even became a love interest for April in that comic series.

The fact Mikey just called him Hothead on the Nick series, I think its more a throwaway reference.

Seems to me like Draco, Null, and Noi Tai Dar all rolled into one.

I think he's the Nick version of Oyuki Mashimi.

Now that I think about it, this version of Hothead also seems to have a fixation on April... just of a completely different tone.

We have a lot of dragon characters in TMNT lore. As I said before, he also reminds me of Draco from the 4kids series.

I guess all red dragons look the same.

  1. The ratings flatlined in season 2
  2. Merch doesn't seem to sell anymore
  3. Reboots tend to fix such problems

Or it could be that they're airing it with absolutely no notion of a regular slot/real schedule and nobody knows it's on to watch it.

And they NEVER rerun it during the week on the main channel. Just Nicktoons, which most people don't even get.

I understand you don't want to burn kids out, but hell. If you can dedicate 8 hours a day to sponge Bob, why not share the love a little bit? It's not like the sponge is moving that much merch these days.

I'll just point out that the Nickelodeon European flagship store in London dedicates quite a good portion of the store space to TMNT. Obviously Spongebob gets the most love but the turtles come a very close second.

I'd say it's pretty much a quarter for Spongebob, quarter for TMNT and the remaining half is split between Dora the explorer, paw patrol and older Nick cartoons like Rugrats and Ren & Stimpy.

Stuff like Breadwinners, Loud House and all the live action stuff like the Thundermans, don't really get a look in.

That and most kids shows in general kinda dropped off the face of the Earth in terms of ratings around the time Season 2 began airing due to streaming services picking up in popularity.

But geez, Nickelodeon's got a pretty broken schedule, and for some reason Cartoon Network is falling suit as well?

The fact that this show didn't get 7 seasons is a crime.

Atleast the four seasons we got were all fantastic and the fifth might even be the best unlike the previous shows. And be thankful we're not entering another hiatus for years until the next show.

What would the Nick show do for 2 more seasons without shredder anyway? All the previous shows didn't last very long after Shredder was ultimately defeated.

FW lasted for only 16 more episodes after the final episode with Shredder as the main villain,

Next Mutation doesn't need much explaining.

The Shredder also appeared less and less towards the ends of the 4Kids show, whether it be Utrom Shredder, Cyber Shredder, Demon Shredder etc.

Once the Shredder is down, no tmnt show shall reign like it once did.

You can't EXPECT 7 seasons/150+ episodes with an action cartoon. Look at He-Man and Thundercats. The 2002 He-Man cartoon was amazing and it got a total of two seasons for 39 episodes. The 2011 Thundercats series didn't even get a second season. Five seasons for 100+ episodes is a very good run for the Nick TMNT series.
