yeah never thought about it that way, they all have something different about them.

Like Raph's plastron, i want to know about that too!

i was just asking cause I know there was an episode in 2k3 where mikey's mask tails accidentally got cut short because he was doing some flashy move

I assume shorter mask tails may also be more practical and safer with Mikey's weapons paired with his general physical craziness in a fight. Or in unpredictable elements, like a fight outside on a windy day.

I could be mistaken, but I think Ciro said at a convention panel (or something) that the crack in his shell would one day be explained, but I can't recall where.

It was either at NYCC or SDCC where Ciro said that. Maybe it'll be explained during the Dark Raph story.

It's mentioned in the TMNT:Ultimate visual history book.

On page 181 Brandon Auman says- "The Turtles definitely grow, but you don't want them to change all that much. You don't want Raph to lose his hot temper or Mikey to suddenly understand why he's acting like a goof. That said, we discover things about them that will broaden their characters for sure. Like why Raph is hot tempered, and how that ties into the crack in his shell...that kind of thing."

"Nickelodeon Germany To Premiere "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Season Three From Saturday 14th March 2015

Although currently unconfirmed, it is expected that other localised Nickelodeon channels across Northern Europe will also debut "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" season three, including Nickelodeon Belgium (BelgiŽ), Nickelodeon Netherlands (Nederland) and Nickelodeon Poland (Polska), around the same time."

Yes please.

Why isn't Donnie more serious during medical situations?

For instance, when Mikey gets shell acne, Raph and Leo tease him, but Donnie says to hold up it might be more serious than they think. Then he teases him that he'll eventually explode, but he doesn't laugh or even say he's just kidding. Even when poor Mikey is freaking out about it. Then later on, when he finds out it's serious for real, he is serious. Shouldn't he have been serious from the start?

Same thing for Raph when he has those squirrels inside him. I take that to be very serious and Donnie pretends he's going to let Mikey cut him open. I think he should be more professional about medical stuff. I think there are a few more instances when he makes these deadpan jokes about medical things. His medical advice can't be taken seriously if he isn't professional about it.

I suppose they have to add the element of humor so it doesn't scare the kids?

I guess the short answer is, he's not a qualified doctor, and being a teenager at that?

I remember during my high school days, we used to fool around in the chemistry lab/workshop despite warnings from the teacher to be cautious about safety. And we took it with a grain of salt because... we were immature teenagers?

By the way, in Mikey Gets Shellacne, it felt like Donnie secretly knew that Mikey's condition was not as serious as it seemed, he was just exaggerating the severity for fun and possibly to teach Mikey a lesson for messing with mutagen. At the end of the episode Donnie even admitted that he put the antidote on acne pads simply because it was hilarious.

I think it was more of a joke about how Mikey's making a big deal out of nothing with the zits. But then later when he learns how Mikey gets the zits in the first place, it makes his joke more prophetic.

So, I was right.
Season 3 starts airing next Saturday.
I'm a bit sad about having to go through a bunch of filler first, but it's a start.

Nice to know that! Be thankful of what you have, many Asian countries didn't even bother to kick off Season 2 after finish airing Season 1. In my country, they have been rerunning Season 1 all along.

But that's fine, I'm following the US airings anyway

Guess what, we got more than lucky this time, having episode 11 airing and 12-13 streaming online on the same day (8 March), what more could we ask for?

Nice, is it just once a week or 2 times a week like the UK.

We getting caught up the US quite quickly (thanks to their breaks). Serpent Hunt is tomorrow, The Pig and The Rhino is next Saturday and looks like Battle for New York is is next Sunday. But I bet we going on a break after that.

They did however change it from 17:15 on a Sunday to about 2 hours earlier on a Saturday. Pretty weird but I'll see how it goes.

They're airing the 2nd episode of season 3 in 2 weeks.
On Saturday morning, followed by a repeat of season 2.
They seem to be randomly airing episodes from season 2, mixed with new episodes of season 3.
I sent them a mail about this, I don't want to have to look ever week on which hour they'll show a new episode.

No answer from Nick yet. I doubt they'll respond to be honest.
I'm dying on the inside. Randomly airing new episodes between old ones doesn't seem like a sign of caring for the show.
Hold me.

I thought TMNT was airing once per week nowadays. And yes I know about the Nicktoons channel, but I'm talking about the actual Nickelodeon channel. Now for the questions that I should ask.

1) How did Leatherhead and Kraang Subprime survive their respective battles? 2) What's the point of keeping the Irma disguise since Subprime isn't infiltrating anyplace right now? 3) Was Pete being part of the Mutanimals inspired by the IDW comics?

Amaranthus was talking about Nickelodeon Belgium. If you're referring to Nickelodeon US, the TMNT airing schedule can be found here.

1) Leatherhead was last seen falling into the water during The Invasion. He could have swam away and escaped via the sewer route. Kraang sub-prime obviously survived the spiral staircase falling on him. He could have been injured, but not killed. Judging from his battle scars he is one tough Kraang to destroy, and has great survivability skills. He could have crawled out by himself, or aided by another Kraangdroid to lift up the debris and set him free, after Splinter left the lair.

2) While the Irma disguise is no longer needed, the transformable body and built-in weapons (laser-shooting eyes, detachable crawling head, strong mechanical limbs and circular saw between fingers) can still come in handy during battle. The compact "Irma" mode is also useful as a protection body for KSP, and is way superior to the clumsy Kraangdroids that other Kraangs are using. You wouldn't expect KSP to return to a regular Kraangdroid body after getting used to the Irma body for so long!

3) Maybe, maybe not. It's hard to tell if the writers at IDW planned this together with Ciro's team from the start, or they both coincidently picked the common members for their respective Mighty Mutanimals line up. Hopefully a behind-the-scene video in the future sheds more light on this question.

KSP likes being pretty. ;p The Irma body is also useful for infiltration. Normal humans aren't going to suspect a teenage girl walking among them.


Hey, non-US folk? Is there a reason you're waiting for the eps to air instead of picking them up on animeflavor or watchcartoononline? (Not to condescend, just wondering the reason...) Both are pretty good sites, but DO have your ad-blocker on. Usually the new eps show up on the sites about 10pm here (Netherlands, so Amaranthus would be in the same one as us... what was that... GMT +1?).

Anyway, that's one way you can get them without the wait. We download ours on our laptop and hook it up to the tv with an HDMI cable.
