  • I like the tmnt 2012 better why would nickelodeon end the best tmnt 2012 series ???

    • I heard somewhere long ago that children are often regarded as exhibiting interest in things for roughly five years before they move on, and a new crop of children turn up. That might be why.

      As for the new series, maybe let it run for a little while and find out what others think of it?

    • Well, maybe it's for the better that TMNT 2012 ended soon while it was still good enough to watch, seeing as how seasons 4 and 5 dropped like a piano strapped to an anvil falling off a plane. But I do miss it a lot.

      As for the new series, we'll just have to hoped for the best that they don't muck it up. But I'd be willing to try it.

    • I'll miss seeing new episodes of the 2012 series  as well.  But, at least we can always go back and re-watch it.  Better for it to end now, while it's still good, than to linger on and go downhill.   

      As for the 2018 series, we'll have to see.  Personally, I like the actor they have playing Raph.  Now, Leo....I'm wary about his characterization.  There's nothing wrong with having him be more laidback and lighthearted;  the 1990 movie incarnation is one of my favorites, and he certainly had a playful side.  I love the part where Mikey and Don are dancing, and he's just grooving along with them;  absolutely adorable!  However, he still was a skilled fighter with a strong spiritual side.  If they did something like that in the 2018 series,  that would be fine, but I'm not sure. It will also be quite different to have Raph as the leader.    Time will tell, I suppose.

    • Yeah, the Leo depiction is making me nervous. Making him more lighthearted is just fine, but I'm worried that they're essentially writing a whole new character without the qualities we know and love in Leo, because those qualities feed naturally into a leader role. It doesn't help that I'm not familiar with voice acting the actor has done (having only heard him as a child duck, which might not be the best example of his talents).

      I'm cautiously optimistic about Josh Brener (whom I've mainly seen in Silicon Valley; the guy seems to specialize in nerds) and Brandon Mychal Smith, Omar Benson Miller sounds a bit deep-voiced compared to the others, Eric Bauza will be awesome of course, and am not feeling Kat Graham.

    • I dunno about the rest of you, but I'm actually pretty excited for the new series. I watched the 2k12 series since the beginning, back when I was in 6th grade, and now when the 2K18 series starts, I'll be starting my last year of high school. Poetic, is it not?

    • well good luck then... i supposed the upcoming series would had been a lot more encouraging that this one, i mean, there isn't a lot of sense here... how can the creators change roles between leo and raph, leo has always been my favourite character because of all that his has done, the leader position really corresponds with him. Plus, the design for him and his brothers is truly awful honestly, it doesn't even look like the 3D modern 2012 series... all this has become really twisted.... I just hope the creators get the most of this new series, if they don't, i think it'll become nothing more than a cartoon for children, not to mention that the content is become far too lighter and the story is reducing its serious plots to mere jokes, 2003 and 2012 were really good, both of them had their own good, funny scenes, but i don't think this a proper way to keep going with the series nowadays sincerely, they can't give up on this.

    • I don't know but I'm doubting this series. Especially the unnecessary changes

        Loading editor
    • Same here. The character designs look really weird, (especially Mikey and Donnie) and it's because Nickelodeon likes episode series better without a timeline so that they can do reruns easily. And as for the "more humor to add", I thought the 2012 series was already funny enough. Overall, I'll give it a shot, but I don't have a good feeling about it.

    • And the personality changes in Leo and Raph. I'm certainly not pleased with it. I love Leo being the leader and the brooding one and love the hot headed Raph.

      It amazes me how everyone has already forgotten that Raph was considered the leader of the group in the 1990 movie. And it took a bit of time in the 2012 series for Leo (and to an extent Raph) to fully realize the enormity of the role he asked for.

      I also agree with Fishface that it was time for it to end too. The series was not getting better season by season and that's why I'm content (at least for the most part) that it's finally over. Well, that and the ever growing ridiculous hiatuses they put us through...although I don't see why the new series wouldn't put us through the same thing now...

      As for the series itself, I too have become worried by the designs and the animation itself, especially Splinter (boy does he look bad!) whom I originally said should've proved very interesting since Eric Bauza would be taking him on after a slew of villains from the 2012 series. I know you can't judge a book by its cover but I have seen too many times where the animation and/or designs don't look good, it's indicative of the effort put into the overall quality of the series. I stilll have hope in Ant Ward and Andy Suriano but definitely not as much as I have before.

      Actually, Raph was only considered the leader in the "T-U-R-T-L-E Power" rap from the credits of the 1990 film, and that was only because Partners in Kryme wasn't familiar with the team's ranking order.

    • What about the fight in April's apartment?  Raph mockingly call Leo "our great leader".  I know Leo responds with "I never said I was your great leader", but I still got a leader "vibe" from Leo during the movie. 

        Loading editor
    • Oh, he definitely took a sort of leaderesque role, but I got the impression that he wasn't one officially/technically. Like he was a natural, but Splinter hadn't actually told him, "Okay, when I'm not here, you're in charge."

      Edit: I don't know if I'm expressing my impressions well.

    • Actually, the new Ben 10 series isn't that bad. At best, it's decent. Maybe take off the nostalgia specs? The PPG reboot? Pretty lousy effort.

      It was a good series; one of the best incarnations, in my opinion.  At least we can always re-watch it :)

      Same here. I wish they had a better conclusion!!!!!!!

      I was satisfied with End Times as the ending for the main storyline.  I'll probably end my overall re-watch with When Worlds Collide, but I thought that Wanted:  Bebop and Rocksteady made a fun series finale.  It seems fitting in a way to end this series with a tribute to the original cartoon that helped to turn so many of us into TMNT fans in the first place --> especially considering what we nearly got for an ending.....*shudders*.  That said, I do agree that there were some loose ends that should have been tied up (ie, Timothy,  April's mom, etc). Although, once again, it could have been worse (and nearly was).

    • Fishface405, maybe they will someday. It was a little annoying that they didn't release any complete season sets after Season 2. I finally gave up and bought the individual DVDs, to make re-watches easier. It was worth it; my re-watch (ending last summer) was a blast :)

    • Much as I miss it too, as 2003 Baxter Stockman said, ‘all good things must come to an end, it’s time to bid you adieu.’. I’m just glad they manages to make the 80’s turtles the way they should be. And they got so many celebrity voice actors, (DAVID TENNANT PEOPLE!!!!!).

      At least Rob Paulsen is involved in this new series and hopefully it’ll make a crossover with any of the previous turtles.

    • Wingnut II,

      I highly recommend it.  For me, the space arc from Season 4 flowed much more smoothly, and didn't feel so drawn out.  It was actually quite enjoyable (granted, this may not turn out to be the case for everybody, but it may be worth a try).

      MickTaylorGuy,

      Agreed.  Better to end now than go downhill (if a certain special was any indication, it may have been about to do exactly that).  It was a fun ride overall.

      David Tennant was awesome as Fugitoid, wasn't he?

    • Random misery-application to the characters for its own sake, which is doubly obnoxious because they had a perfectly good, conclusive ending that needed no more WITHOUT "and then a bad thing happened for no reason, and everything was ruined forever."

      And there's the fact that, if taken as canon, it renders the entire series and everything that happens in it pretty much pointless. Like, why be invested in any of their adventures at all? 

      (And let's not even get into how it contradicted preestablished story elements like Renet)

      Exactly! It's basically a poorly-written fanfiction spawned from Raph's mind due to watching Mad Max movies. And the less we talk about Nipplehead...the better.
