It is somewhat sad to see this go, I'd say it was probably one of the best TMNT shows.
A nice mix of new creativity for the franchise yet still nods to past incarnations.
I will say, however, I'd say the series did get annoying a little too much. A lot of times they make some characters way too annoying, especially Mikey.
I will also, they didn't resolve a lot of things which is a shame. Was really hoping they'd bring back the Timothy / Mutagen Man cure, especially since you can see him in the background in some episodes.
I didn't really think the finale was all that special, even more so if the Mad Max style episode is suppose to be the 'true' end.
Still, I did enjoy the series even if I did have some issues overall.

Kevin Michael Richardson as 80's Shredder. Absolutely great. His imitation of James Avery's Shredder is spot on.

I still can't believe it's over. 5 seasons over 5 years.

cant beleive shreddder is back again, this show really wants to keep KMR but its okay to have a season where shredder is not the main villain heck even the 80s show did it,

Man is Tiger Claw commited to Shredder, I mean super shredder treated him badly and he was still willing to bring him back

Apparently the show will be replaced in 2018 Season 5 will be the final season, my feelings to this show well the turtles are much better in 2d and some of the acting is not good to me but i like the storylines the show brought and like most tv series on turtles had a cool original villian in Tiger Claw.

Considering Season 5 will be about the turtles after they killed they shredder and leo is now the sensei i wonder if this can top the 2003 season 4 storyline with a similar premise where leo started to isolate himself from his family because of what happened to shredder, we will just wait

Hope Nick does another 80s TMNT crossover I liked Cam/Barry/Rob/Townsend/Patrick voicing the 80s Leo/Donnie/Raph/Mikey/Krang in most of Trans-Dimensional Turtles "which was shown on Easter of this year and can now be found on the internet" but they didn't have Renae aka April or Peter aka Splinter and others so we need them back too or better yet would be nice if Nick just ask for the rights to show the 1987 TMNT series I know I'm not the only one who wants it back on tv soon.

I find it interesting how recently they've been getting all the great raspy or deep voiced character actors to play the Triceratons and their henchmen

Lance Henriksen, then Michael Dorn, then Ron Perlman, and now Michael Ironside was in the most recent episode. I'm just waiting for Miguel Ferrer and we're set

Zelda Williams was fantastic as Mona Lisa in the newest episode. She had great chemistry with both Keith David's character and Raphael.
said at 1:53 AM on Wed Nov 25 2015
@skeletonking1234 I listened to the Clip, and heard no mentioning of Mona Lisa's origins on how she ended up being Mutated (More like Newtated as she's a Newt (a Human who had her DNA combined with a Newt's)).

@CuriousUserX90 don't know what that has to do with anything I just said

@skeletonking1234 She was voiced well enough....But I honestly found Mona's character to be flat depth-wise, and yet another romantic plot device.

The whole thing between her and Raph felt forced IMO.

@TheLemsterPju Renet and Karai worked better, as they had personality and independence. Rather than just being love interest bait for a male character.

Hey to anyone that's seen the battle for new York episode, how funny is it when the guys are in the stolen technodrom & their mask ends are flying up that Donnie looks like a bunny? It reminded me of the old Cadbury Comercial. & because of the release date the timing was perfect. I tried to find a pic of the scene & a pic of the turtle in the Cadbury Comercial that was trying to be the bunny stand in but no luck yet.

Just saw next week's episode & I'm not saying anything to spoil it for those who have to wait but it was awesome, absolutely amazing! I am so exact right now! The battle for New York rocks! Like a kid in a candy store I can't get enough of the guys in green. As much as I liked the original 1987 show as a kid I love this one even more, it takes TMNT to a whole new level! No doubt best rendition ever & perfect cast of voice actors all the way! Great mix of old cast members from the past & new voices but they all do wonderfully at really bringing life to the characters. They give them all the depth & back story & visibly learned experiences that make a good show great! Add to that the fact that they have good story lines & writers that add a bit of everything, action most definitely, comedy & suspense topped of with just the right amount of drama & love! Then the wonderful family dynamic is so much stronger in this TMNT I just love it! I watch it with my 4 year old son all the time!

I don't understand why Seth Green is getting messed with about being the new voice of Leo. I mean I get the whole wanting characters voices to stay the same but nick couldn't just overlook the remarks made by Biggs & Seth Green is a good actor & even better voice actor. Also the way they set it up was perfect really, to have the last episode with Biggs have Leo go through so much & then explain the voice change through the injuries sustained in battle that left him in a coma for months.

I like how in this series you can actually tell the Turtles apart. The script and the voice acting is really good, despite the animation not being all that fantastic.
said at 12:39 PM on Mon Feb 23 2015
@BlankSlate I agree, except that I kinda like the animation it's definitely way better then in the original show from the 80s that I grew up loving. Also I like there eyes when their shocked or the flame behind them if their mad. But it is a great show, the actors really do a wonderful job making you care about the characters and they all have their own distinct personalities. I get a lot of gruff from my husband and teenage daughter for liking the show so much but my four year old son and I love it and it's one of the few cartoons made in recent years that is as enjoyable for me as it is for my son and not at all inappropriate for him. With my daughter our show we watched together the most was the last air binder. That was a good show too but it was no tmnt!

Great show for fans both old and new.

Also one of the (If the not "thee") best interpretations of Splinter yet. Such power, authority, and fatherly care in his voice. He's probably my favorite character in this show.
said at 9:09 PM on Mon Apr 21 2014
Man, I can't wait until they bring back one of the turtles old school friend. For true fans of the series there cannot be a series if they don't bring back the Samurai Rabbit.... Miyamoto Usagi.... That's right! I said it, he was a bad ass rabbit!! Homie got down with Leo and pretty much taught him a lesson or two. Now the voice of the character should be none other than.... Wait forrrrrrr it.... Donnie Yen. The man who played the legendary IP MAN in part 1 and 2. If he could speak english of course. Man, that would be sooo sick!! I know, I know it wouldn't happen but a man can dream. Can't he???

@skeletonking1234 The idea of him becoming Tokka might work. Since Raph's pet turtle Spike became Slash, he make a better Tokka than Fishface. Assuming he joins the Foot to get even with Raph.

this has to be the best portrayl of splinter yet. he keeps a extreamly good balance between father type and Ninja master! which is good because as much as i like splinter, i was kinda disappointed that people kept over doing the father side of him.

@pete But is it really a reference when it's just the word Kriby as his name. Is having the name Lee a reference to Stan Lee?

@Music Meister Considering they did that way in 2003 series they could have done it again.
said at 3:33 AM on Sun Nov 18 2012
@Music Meister Look at it this way Lee is a somewhat common name and Kirby isn't. Considering Peter Laird had it done with the 2003 series him(if he's involved with this) or Kevin Eastman could have done it again.
said at 1:13 AM on Sun Nov 25 2012
@pete/@MusicMeister: Well, in the 2003 TMNT series, the episode featuring the "Kirby" character opened with a card explicitly stating: "This Episode is Dedicated to Jack Kirby 'King of the Comics'", so there's no disputing the connection there.

In light of that, and the TMNT creators' obvious deep respect for him, I don't think it's TOO much of a stretch to guess that the Kirby O'Neil character was named as a nod to Jack Kirby.
said at 3:29 AM on Tue Nov 19 2013
@Music Meister In any other circumstance, I'd agree with you. This however, I'd say is an homage to Jack Kirby. They've used at least 3 other references to the creators. the 'Eastman and Laird' reference, Mr. Murakami, and Wolf Hotel. Murakami and Wolf are the producers of the 80's cartoon and featured prominently after the credits of the episodes.

I'll admit, I was cautious about this show, but I gotta say, I really like it! Even the voices are growing on me... and dare I say, they may be the best one so far! Except for Donnie, still can't come around with his voice quite yet.

However, these voices portray the younger versions of the turtles where the 03 series seemed a little older, and thus sounded older. So I like each voice for different reasons

According to the cast list... Rob Paulson is playng Donatello... WHY CANT HE JUST PLAY RAPH LIKE IN THE ORIGINAL SHOW?! They brought back an original voice actor from the 80s-90s version, and he's not even playing his own character? WTH?
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 8:15 PM on Mon Oct 24 2011
@BMcCauley Its because they have a different vision for what Donatello is going to be like and you have to realize that Rob is a tad bit older now as well - just wait until you see it before you pass judgment and then if you still don't like it so be it :)
TylerMirage (Admin)
said at 11:30 AM on Thu Mar 22 2012
@BMcCauley Uh, because Rob doesn't "own" the character? That's probably why. He's not the only VA to voice Raph. He doesn't have rights to the character, no more than Nolan North or Matt Hill or anyone else. They brought in a talented voice actor to voice someone who he *hasn't* voiced before. That happens a lot in voice acting. I think you just need to cool it, man. :)

@BMcCauley Just be glad he's voicing one of the turtles.
said at 11:20 AM on Sun Sep 30 2012
@BMcCauley Also cause Rob played a vastly different version of the character from any other version in any other medium. Probably because they needed to make the 86 series more kid friendly, but the standards of kid friendly has changed over the years so they can the tough one again without fearing that parents would get upset at the show for him being violent.
I like Rob, he just doesn't fit that mold well, but he does fall into donetello's, so there's that at least.
