Hypothetically yes. But no (respectable) company would offer SD content as the main feature of a Blu-ray disc.

I think some German company actually released Blu-rays of the FW toon. SD of course.

Discotek Media released a Blu-Ray set last year for Samurai Pizza Cats, which has all 52 episodes on a single disc. The set is even labeled as a "SD-BD", to clarify that it isn't HD content.

So it has been done by a professional company, but that set should probably be looked at as an outlier and not a precedent.

I'm the dumba** who bought the 1100$ carded figure lot on eBay because of how much I love this show. Most people don't realize that this franchise led by Peter absolutely saved TMNT as we know it. People who grew up with this show should feel their nostalgia kicking in about now. I just feel sorry for them that no one will ever give them proper adult figures or collectibles. 4Kids4Life!

Early-21st century will probably kick in some years into the 2020's.

Didn't know it was the 14th anniversary, to be honest. I first found out that there was going to be a new tmnt cartoon in 2002 when I started browsing the Technodrome forums as a guest. I started watching the cartoon when it began airing in Ireland on rte two from September 2003. The definitive tmnt cartoon, in my opinion.

That's kinda cool. As long as companies don't lie about the content not being in HD, I don't see why this shouldn't catch on. The cost of putting SD media onto Blu-ray discs is no doubt a deal-breaker for most companies though.

When in 2002 did the news come out? Everything came out so much slower back then.

ninjaturtles.com, which was Mirage's official website, broke the news sometime in 2002. You can probably find old threads on this forum from 2002 where we first found out about it

Loved this series. It made me sign up instead of just lurking back in 2003. I've enjoyed all the TMNT shows and movies for the most part, but this one will always be special to me.

It's kind of funny, almost all the people who were on this forum back in 2002-2007 or so are now gone. You look at the oldest threads on these forums and at the usernames, about 90% of those people are gone and haven't posted here in years.

LOL, in that thread from 2002, apparently some thought it would be a CG show. Little did they know we'd get that about a decade later:

Cartoon, Movie based, Live series and now computer series.

So i think returning back to there original roots (aka being the cartoon series)was a good move. Mind you fall 2003 feels a long way away to me.

While i personally am crossing my fingers that the movie will be like the other 3 and not a completly different concept (as in CGI). If the movie is Based on the comic style i have no worries with that, as they tried the darker series out in the cartoon.

I wonder why so many people had problems of capitalizing "I" in English back in 2002? Maybe it's because of the 1990's, when Internet chatting was popular (and chat language could be horrible).

Great stuff guys. I only discovered this place when the Nick show started I think, it's nice to still have fans of the 2K3 series around. I wonder what happened to all those other users that aren't around anymore?

Probably busy living their social lives at Facebook, as most people now.
