Old Feb 15th, 2003, 12:25 PM        Re-make of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles of FOX Kids now.
I watched the first episode last week for nostagia's sake. They re-doing the entire series from the ground up, like the first cartoon show back in the eighties never happened.

The animation is a lot darker and grittier. The turtles have white yolks for eyes and are massive compared to their eighties-counterparts.

All and all, still cheesy as fuck. But hey, with shows like Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon ruling the cartoon-industry, kids need a taste of quality programming from the eighties.

I don't understand why they don't just bring back the old cartoons of the eighties :/

Remakes aren't always bad, but usually they fucking suck. Just look what they've done to Transformers

I can't fault them to going back to the original Eastman/Laird looks of the characters, but does anybody have a screengrab on what they look like?

And I agree about Transformers. The '80s version has some play on words when they named the robots. Nowadays they just pull any car related term out of a dictionary and hope it sticks. No more Wheeljacks, but a hell of a lot more 'Burnouts' and 'U-Turns.'

The latest Transformers version I saw pained me so much. All of the Decepticons (or wait, I think they're now the Predacons again) are clumsy morons, most of the Autobots are too, Prime just sits around in HQ looking gay, and there's anime human characters everywhere.

And I didn't like the construction worker and his son in the original Transformers much, already.

I've still got my only surviving tmnt tape with 2 episodes (the one where michealangelo and shredder switch bodies, and the one with the robot cop) and that's all I need for my tmnt fix, but I'll check out the new show.

Btw, beast wars kicked ass

I'll give them props for creating an Optimus Primal Gorilla, but they should have cut the crap and just put out the old characters again instead of releasing old models with stupid names. Transformers are cars and then anything else, not vice versa.

I'm sorry, but Beast Wars was CRAP. I wouldn't have minded the show if it hadn't used the name Transformers, but other than that it doesn't hold a candle to the old show. Beast Wars has like eight characters. The animation is crappy (for a CGI show), the characters spend half the episode in their "beast mode", they added these gay Power Rangers taglines like "TERRORIZE" and "MAXIMIZE" for when they transform, absolutely nothing of interest happens in any of the episodes... they're on an empty planet, wtf do they have to defend? Add to that that in those show, too, nearly everyone's a bumbling moron (save for maybe Optimus and Megatron), and you have a recipe for trash.

Sorry. That show just makes me mad.

HEY!
It was the only "transformers" show I knew when I was a kid, so it'll always be cool for me. The cgi was actually decent for a show BACK THEN, but sucks now.


Btw, eventually there was like 20 characters

Does anybody remember when some idiot company brought back the original Transformers back in 1994-5 in which some really annoying CGI was added into the show? Every cutaway was portrayed by the camera moving from one shot to another and took about five seconds JUST to get to the other scene...fucking annoying if you ask me.

Watching it now....

Baxter Stockman is a black man who mass producted Mousers, and April O'Neil (in the form of some teenage girl in a halter top and cargo pants) is his assistant, who just discovered his evil secret (of making Mousers).

I hate this cartoon.

Baxter can't be black. My last name is Baxter and all my friends grew up watching TMNT, and one of my nicknames is Baxter. And if he's black, I can't be Baxter. I'm not black! AND APRIL CAN'T BE A NON-REPORTER WITHOUT AN UGLY YELLOW SUIT! WHAT THE HELL

Exactly

He's not even a wimpy black man, either. And April's new look reminds me of how they "hip-ified" the characters in X-Men Evolution.

I hope not. The fewer great characters they associate with this shit, the better.

Personally, I like the new TMNT cartoon. It's definetly more true to the comic than the old series was.

I dunno. Maybe I say I like it because it's on really early in the morning and I'm too asleep to recognize it's crappiness. But I don't think that's it.

Baxter Stockman is black.

You know, I just can't help but think of this as a petty way to make the whole mutant fly situation a bit more politically charged. "Oh yeah, I've always been like an annoying little fly to Whitey! But now I got teeth!"

Oh God, please let me be wrong.
