Coputer animation is here to stay and improve, if so older viewers like it or not. It's great to have three TMNT versions, each in different styles.

I wrote out a reply to this and I deleted it all because I don't get your angle...its obviously aimed at me saying I don't care much for CGI but at no point did I say they shouldn't use it or that I didn't understand how people could like it at all.

Traditional animation still exists, true its pretty niche now but its still out there so I think your comment is pretty redundant

They are 80's babies and 90's kids and yes, 00's teens.You are right. But Cyber is a 80's baby and a 90's kid.

Mid- 80's kids, not babies are the ones who grow up with the original TMNT cartoons, Voltron, Thundercats, etc, by early 90's they were teens.

But the topic here is: Is that 2003 TMNT series is under- appreciated? I put yes. See my comment above.

It's jus to forgotten. It kinds came at an awkward time, coupled with a forgettable cgi movie and games coming out when they were just getting used to 3d graphics and Konami was starting to suck. To its credit, it brought newfound awareness to the original mirage comics and brought in things that even the bay movies decided to.... somewhat use... namely black Baxter and Karai. The horrible home releases didn't help either missing entire episodes.

2012 is what's happening now so naturally it's on everyone's mind and I guess it was the right time for a second smaller turtle mania boom complete with stores full of their merchandise and a float at the Macy's parade. I honestly see way more kids into tmnt stuff now than back in the day. It felt like I was the only guy in toys R us looking for tmnt figures. Now I have to hope my figure of choice isn't sold out. And in this day and age of pop vinyls and mystery boxes and hot topic's nostalgia trip, there's an onslaught of 2012 and 80s tmnt everywhere.

It's just bad timing and the world was in a different mindset back in 03. I'm pretty sure if 2003 was released today it would have been just as successful as the 2012 or at least more than it was at the time. Perhaps with a bigger budget due to more ratings/toysales we would have avoided the fast forward and back to the sewers crap budget animation.

Meh, Tom Waltz certainly remembers and draws inspiration from it, the Nick crew (possibly begrudgingly) remembers and draws inspiration from it, that's all that really matters to me.

As long as we see Hun, Bishop, Angel, Ch'rell, The Battle Nexus, etc pop up in new material, I know it's remembered where it actually counts: Amongst fans and creators.

Angel is one of the most well-written child and teenage-chracters within TMNT. Together with Archie's Oyuki.

Totally. It opened the door to a more traditional TMNT going foward

Battle Nexus

I don't like Battle Nexus. Just because the turtles kick butt, they don't need to be the greatest fighters of all times and space throughout the Multiverse, or not even on Earth. Even if it's just a sport.

Prefer Archie's intergalactic pro-wrestling then. At least there they just won a tournament, without even being considered the greatest fighters in the Universe.

But they didn't really win though, Mikey did but by complete accident.

Battle Nexus

Also, Battle Nexus felt forced because of that videogame.

But anyway, the season 3 opening with Triceratons attacking Earth was great.

The 2003 show I do feel is not as appreciated, but I don't believe as many people watched it as the other incarnations of the show. Hard to appreciate something not as many people grew up with and enjoyed like some of us did. Just my opinion based off of talking with other people. Weirdly enough I think more people know of the Kramp Twins then the 2003 Ninja turtle show from my conversations...
