I've used the search engine, and used the title of the topic and I came up with nothing.  There is a thread just for X-men, Ren and Stimpy, Beavis and Butt-head and Butchman Cartoons and such.

I LOVE TMNT, the old cartoon.  That was my Futurama before 1999.  I sort of like the remake, I hear it was more like the comic, than the old verison.  The guys who created the comics worked on both TV series and the movies.

I heard that TMNT Season One from the old cartoon was released on DVD earlier this year.  It features the first five episodes and four extra episodes from the 10th season that were never aired in the US, but only in the UK.  Can some UK fans who have the DVD post the name of the four extra episodes please?

I couldn't stand the rediculous animation for ninja turtles. I would frequently point out errors, like different scenes appearing to be drawn by different people as well as characters randomly growing or shrinking in different settings.

It was a very sloppy cartoon.

i agree. I loved TMNT when i wasa little kid. My favorite was the Red one (i think his name was Raphael). He was the badass one with the daggers. I recently saw an episode of the new series, but it absolutely sucks. Too anime for my liking.

Here it was Hero Turtles, not Ninja. I think the Ninja was deemed "too violent" for children.

Nevertheless, I loved TMNT. It was one of my favourite shows as a child. The new series is just plain bad...

I was never a fan of it, I guess I was a bit to old for it when it came out.

I liked the original, hate the remake. Anime should stay in the east and the West should be original and not cash in like a cheap whore.

When I was younger I actually liked the storyline presented in the first two movies better. Something about the foot being real people, and the fact that shredder could beat the shit out of the turtles, added to it. Now when I watch the movies years later though they seem to have lost their luster.

you know that kevin Nash played Super Shredder in TMNT:2? I found it amusing that "Big Daddy Cool" was a villain in a kids movie.

And lets not forget regular shredder, who was voice acted by Ole Anderson, AKA "the Shockmaster" AKA the "black scorpion."

Oh yeah!  Heh, I've of course heard of the TMNT, but never really watched it so I can't rightfully say it sucks.  So I'll just say it unrightfully.

But the series did help spawn the acclaimed show "Samurai Pizza Cats."

I loved it when I was a kid, but haven't seen it since. I've still got my tapes of every episode (and all the movies), so I might watch 'em to see if they stood the test of time...

What about season 2? I mean if season one was popular enough, they're maybe more seasons to come?

I used to love the Turtles. I thought the first movie was great (the second was alright and the third really sucked)

Although as the years passed and I learned more about the comics I realised that the series was not that good. I mean they never showed that Raphael was a manic depressive in the series.

I now realise that i was more a Thundercats and Transformers man (Transformers Generation 1 that is)

Nearly all of us kids who grew up in the '80s love the Turtles. My cartoon favorite was Michelangelo, but my movie favorite was Raphael.

I won't touch the new series. I've seen ads for it on TV, and I flatly refuse to watch it. I just don't want to see something I loved as a child butchered and sold off as if it were the latest trend.

Kicked your ass.

I used to love that show. I used to watch it all the time when it was on. I remember Michaelangelo being my fave. Never realised at the time, but they have really cool names. Vey exotic, are they all named after something? Artists maybe, with the Leonardo and Michaleangelo references  smile

Yeah, Raphael and Donatello were some artist dudes too, or sculpters.

And I can't believe you've never heard of some of the other greatest artistes of all time: Splinter, Shredder, Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady!   laff

Edit: So Raphael has a 'p' in it now, eh?

I was watching it from when I was a baby, and I loved it back then, though I never liked the movies.  Thanks to the miracle of illegal emulation, I have the first three games for the NES, and the Super Nintendo one.  I also have the original arcade one.  The games are traditional Double Dragon like games, except for the first one, and they still are pretty good.

I don't think either of them are, actually, at least not in tone.  I've seen the first issue of the original black and white comic, and its much darker then the two series were.  The shows are more for kids, while the comic was more strictly adult.

Anyways, I don't think I ever actually saw the show as a kid, which makes me wierd.  A friend and I did watch an old TMNT tape he had for the hell of it a year or two ago and we laughed ourselves silly.  Its so terrible.  Although we did catch a possible homage to "2001: A Space Odyssey", which was very strange to see.

The two arcade games are two of the best ever, though.

If you could please explain the 2001 homage, I would greatly appreciate it.

And what were the two arcade games?  I know the one that became TMNT 2 for the NES was one, but what was the other?

The NES version had more levels and, IMO, better sound.

The arcade version had better graphics and let you play up to all four turtles at once.

This isn't entirely relevant, but what can I say?

I tuned into an episode of TMNT long after I stopped watching the show, and I saw that they went back to the Technodrome to get Krang's android suit.  I learned a couple of months ago that this was indeed the last episode.

Maybe it's just my fuzzy recollection, but I don't think the new show is particularly better or worse then the old one.

I'm sure if I watched it now, I'd find the whole thing pretty stupid...

If I recall correctly the title was "Invasion of the Turtle Snatchers".  Anyways, at one point this wierd pillar thing (I think it ends up shooting lasers at them or something but I don't really remember what it was) comes out of the ground, and of course it looks loosely similar to the Monolith in 2001, that comes out of the ground in the beginning apes scene for instance.  Perhaps aknowledging the homage/similarity, one of the turtles says "didn't I see this in a movie once?".

TMNT 2 was indeed the first arcade game.  The second was Turtles in Time, which appeared as Turtles IV on the SNES.
