How old were you...(I mean it is a CyberCubed Thread)

How old were you in 2003 when this show debuted?

I was 16, so I was at the right age where I wanted a "more action oriented" or "darker" TMNT show in my teen years compared to growing up with all the original series stuff.

It's funny because I always think of myself as an adult when this show came out, but then I remember I was still just a 16 year old in High School when this show came out.

Almost 21, you thread-title-repeating dick.

Yeah, all those titles have been updated.

They were soooo 2003.

I was 22 when the show first aired. I basically grew up with the 1987 series, watching the early seasons when I was 11 and then the red sky ones as a teenager, I felt the red sky seasons helped me warm up to be able to watch the 2003 series, which I think was much darker than red sky many times.

I was 16 when the show debuted in the US. 17 when it started to air in Ireland. Like icebot, the red sky seasons helped me to warm up to the 2003 series, though it still took me a few episodes to get into it. Garbageman being the first ep I saw probably didn’t help.

Hm. I was 25. But at the time I hadn't been into TMNT since probably 1991. And I didn't have any real exposure to the '03 show until whenever it was that Cartoon Network did the TMNT Forever crossover.

I was 10 when the first episode aired but the show probably didn't air in Sweden that year. I didn't see much of the show on TV because my mom didn't care much about paying for cable, so our access to most channels tended to be in flux because of this. I knew there was an older show but I had no idea if the two shows were connected at all, because I had not really seen the old show, just a bunch of leftover merch. I do remember it being kind of weird that none of the characters, like the Rhino and Warthog, that were featured heavily in that merch did not appear in the new show.

Of course now I know the two shows are nothing alike on purpose, as it was one of the original creators' attempt to give the kiddy branch of the franchise some... Much needed "corrective surgery"... So to speak.

I was 3/4 years old.
But I don't remember approaching the TMNT until when I was 5.

I was 21 (going on 22) when the first episode of the 4Kids series aired. I'm 99% certain that I was out at the bar the night before.
