I really have no opinion of the shows. I just wanted to use that GIF.

Lol... my retort was, in turn, a quote from The Big Lebowski.

Tried to be funny. Deaf ears.

If Disney did a TMNT cartoon I doubt it would have been like USM. It doesn't have enough characters to do that unless it crossed over everything and basically made "Turtles Forever: The series". They probably would have made a straightforward retelling again.

They are, they really are dogshit. Muted colors, cookie cutter art style, sub-par writing, reliance of after effects and copying the movies in too many aspects, regardless of wheter or not it makes sense for a cartoon. I'd rather watch Spider-Man Unlimited and MTV Spider-Man back to back four times than sit through all of Ultimate, at least they had some kind of integrity...

It's probably because of the "Teenage" title it's so hard to get past that.

Which is a shame. Esp since it's so common to just refer to them in short as the 'Ninja Turtles' anyhow. (Wish people hadn't flipped over 2014's title... Hope future Turtle makers forget about that.)

Next Mutation did an early attempt with just the Ninja Turtles title.

Why? Now they've got the title still in the bank, to be used for something else. Something else that's not ghastly.

It's kind of ironic IDW TMNT is going to wind up being the longest lasting TMNT incarnation. Unless you count Mirage's continual run from 1984-2010, but they had huge breaks inbetween.

Archie run for longer time than IDW (August 1988-March 1996)

From how previous discussions/arguments have gone in the past I've deduced CyberCubed doesn't have much respect for the Archie series, hence he never really gives it much recognition.

WTF? I said IDW is going to "wind up having the longest run" of a TMNT series, I didn't say it already did. Do you not understand future tense?

Of course right now Archie went on longer, but IDW TMNT is looking to have a 10+ year run.

That's all fine and good, but how come you glossed over Archie in your initial statement? I respect that Mirage is the source of all things Ninja Turtles and they deserve to be recognized for that, but at the same time you can't ignore how successful Archie Comics was with them as well.

LOL, what? I like the Archie run a lot and read through it several times. I don't know how you come to that conclusion.

I only brought up Mirage because it lasted 25 years, and said IDW would likely be the longest lasting otherwise. Just because I didn't name-drop Archie doesn't mean I ignore it. I literally own every single Archie issue in my comic cabinets right now.

Well, maybe I'm too biased about the Archie comics. They meant a lot to me as a kid and sometimes certain comments people make about them tend to upset me. To be honest, I kinda wish Warner Bros. had bought the rights to TMNT as they could've easily adapted most of those stories into an animated series the same way 4Kids adapted Mirage. I would still love to see what Null, Kid Terra and the Malignoids would sound like.

? You mean like, in essence, the PD film didn't get its cooties on it so it's still safe to use? lol

Really I meant in terms of fan reaction hopefully not scaring someone else away from ever trying to "alter" the title.

That's the thing for an upcoming series somewhere in the 2020's.

If you also like Archie, you should listen to the Turtlesoup podcast.

http://turtlesoupshow.com/

It's about two persons who review most TMNT cartoons and comics, and I mainly listen to it becasue of their Archie reviews. They like it, and it's great listening to people being positive with something (instead of all bashings for the sake of bashing..).

Sort of like how Marvel changes the "The Amazing Spider-Man" title to Spider-Man in other media.
