People crying about the Bay-ificsation of TMNT have apparently forgotten about this abomination...

Crimes against humanity.

Ninja Turtles, cartoon on, was never a high-quality piece of thoughtful entertainment (I never read the original comics of it). It's really irritating to me that kids are being marketed the same things their parents were 20-30 years ago. Maybe this trend's gone on for a long time but I never noticed it. Today's children need their own pile of singular inane, commercialized shit to cherish.

I pretty much deny all knowledge of the turtles after the first movie

and even the live turtles in the first movie were a liiiiiiiiiiittle creepy

more fun as a cartoon imo

BTW, Michael Zulli's three-issue run on TMNT in 1991 is the benchmark of the whole series...

feel like the bay movie is likely to skew toward the zulli look

and that zulli will see zero money

whether or not there's any validity to the complaints, can't we all at least agree that professional grief being heaped upon michael bay is net gain for humanity?

Thing I liked most about the first couple of movies was the connection they had to NY/bboy culture, however vague. It was like watching a live action anime about a bunch of breakdancers. Also hands up everyone who can sing the verse couple of verses of the T.U.R.T.L.E. Power rap from the 1st film....?

Possibly matt groening is a little luckier.

Sheepish handraise.

Today's children need their own pile of singular inane, commercialized shit to cherish.

Massively OTM! When current generations hijack the nostalgia of previous generations, we get Woodstock '94. And '99. Never forget.

xxpost but I thought that they don't make any scratch off TMNT? something about their deal with Nickelodeon screwed them out of the glory? or am I totally wrong

Also kids have plenty of their own dumb shit and I'm sure they were trying to market "the Apple Dumpling Gang: the next generation: the animated series" or something when I was young.
I have to say it is p weird working w/eighth graders & they try and school me on who the Ninja Turtles are, though.

Judging from my niece's favorite shows, look for Olivia and Yo Gabba Gabba hologram reboots in 2042

I was a huge TMNT nerd as a kid, but the only thing I'll really rep for these days is the Archie Comics series (geared more towards kids and ostensibly an offshoot of the not-so-hot cartoon) and some of the original black & white stuff.

xxpost sometimes it's cool though - my niece's path into anime started with Robotech when she was about 10, and as her grownup Aunt and Uncle, Mr Veg and I couldn't have been more psyched to hand her the armload of dvd box sets.

The Nickelodeon sale was two years ago - first issue came out in 1984.

(Eastman stopped working at Mirage when Tundra launched c. 1991, sold all his share bar a creator interest to Laird/Mirage in 2000, and Laird bought the rest out in 2008.)

Possibly matt groening is a little luckier.

at least 'life in hell' used to be great. tbh i think eastman and laird's original comics are pretty mediocre. my fondest TMNT memories are of the arcade game.

hell yeah the arcade game- NEW and game boy iterations also p good

NES version was great except for that one level where you had to defuse the underwater bombs. prob among my most frustrating childhood experiences.

Maybe it's like there's an alien fungus that comes down and mutates the turtles.
