I still get nostalgia for the show. I watched it as a kid, and then stopped in the middle of Fast Forward. I only watched one more episode called "Web Wranglers", and nearly forgot about the show.

Then one day, I was going through my video game library for a game to play, and found TMNT 2: Battle Nexus. After playing it, my nostalgia came and made me go on YouTube and binge watch on the entire series. And just in time for the 2012 cartoon to come out, I believe.

Basically, I think my nostalgia came because it was one of the series I loved as a child (along with Kirby: Right Back At Ya and Sonic X). Rewatching the series was like revisiting my childhood.

I think that's true for everything we get nostalgic for.

As for me, I get nostalgic in general for TMNT. Even if I'm watching the Nick toon I'm somewhat nostalgic, because the Turtles were a (very important) part of my childhood. And that's intriguing: a big part of the franchise is new for me (Mirage, 4Kids, IDW, Nick), so I'm both curious and nostalgic at the same time - and thats a very ambivalent, but delightful feeling: exploring something completely new, and being remembered on my own childhood memories.

I'm with Thunder on this, right now.

IDK, I finished bingeing (that doesn't look right, but auto-correct is well, saying that's the correct spelling) it last year, a good two months or so before I joined here. Man, stuff has changed over the last year. Like, I'd bundle up with my sis and we'd always watch the Good genes arc on my tablet. I stumbled upon one of those episodes on YouTube recently (can I mention that? It's just direct links that aren't allowed, right?) and it was just so relaxing to watch. Man, now I wanna rewatch this series.

What they could do without being held back is my question.
Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building.
I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

Nick is still having nostalgia for 90s shows at the moment, since a lot of 90s kids are now working at Nick. I say give it a few years.

Man, it's been a decade or so since the show ended. Crazy.

I have nostalgia not for the show itself per se, but watching it as it aired, even if I missed several episodes at the time. But boy, was it exciting to watch this show at the time. I feel like I grew up with it. I began watching it when I was 13 and it ended when I was 18. It pretty much covered my entire teenage years. No other show encompassed all of that time period in my life like this one. So to me it's forever gonna be the cartoon series of my teenage years.

I already have nostalgia for this show. It saddens me that this is but forgotten. People will remember the 80's toon and the 2012 cartoon, and maybe even Rise...but I ask some people what they thought of 2K3 and many to not remember it.

Hands down the best iteration of toon turtles to date in my book
I watch this series in its entirety about once a year

I've rewatched the show in full about 8-10 times over the years. I rewatched the original cartoon in full about 30-40 times, so this one is lagging behind a bit. Going to have to marathon it again soon.

You really need to flip flop that. I grew up with the original cartoon as well, so I agree that it is nice to periodically rewatch. But the 4Kids series is the one that you should be rewatching more. I Just finished my 4Kids rewatch. I'm thinking about maybe doing an original cartoon rewatch. But I'm thinking that I'll more likely watch another one of the more modern cartoons, like maybe the 2011 Thundercats. I don't think I've rewatched that one yet.

Iím rewatching the show in full at the moment for the first time and currently near the end of season 4. Hadnít watched it much since it went off air until recently (only watched a few eps here and there before that). I didnít realize how good this cartoon was, as I missed some episodes back in the day.

Could never watch both cartoons (or any show for that matter) that amount of times, though I did watch the OT a lot over and over again on tv when I was younger. Iíd prefer to watch something new instead such as Batman: TAS which I remember little about. I only try to rewatch a show every 4 years or so.

Haha holyy how do you have time for that many rewatches? I think I only have 1 rewatch and I was proud of that cause it took me ages

Maybe it's time re-watch the amazing 2k3 series (it was so good!!11! i cant even explainnn) because I miss it so much, and I even found the whole series in Italian on youtube so it will help with my italian.
