    *Edited for taking shit too seriously*

    Okay, maybe it's not that bad. But we can only hope Nickelodeon gives us something good out of TMNT.

    So Mirage didn't "sell out" years before? Apparently someone hasn't seen the CBS episodes or "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation."

    So that officially kills the current cartoon from returning, so the 25th Anniversary movie better still come out... it'll be the last hurrah for both old and current generations.

    I hope that it doesn't ruin the scheduled airing of Turtles Forever.

    I don't see why it would. It's not like these things have instantaneous effects. When this stuff happens, they almost always allow current contracts to expire.

    Oh, and on a side note. This is probably a good thing. Nick has no problem with complex childrens shows. Just look at Avatar.

    This could be bad, we'll just have to wait & see. I also echo concerns of the release of Turtles Forever though.

    I hardly consider the original comics a children's franchise, so yes.

    Regardless, they can do what they want with it. I got my 2003 comic adaptation and it was a great ride. I'll have fun with whatever they do.

    I doubt Nickelodeon has much interest in interfering with the comics, and the 2k3 series was ruined as soon as Fast Forward started, so I see no bad news here as of yet...

    I hope this means they might actually finish releasing seasonal sets for Season 3 and so on of the 2003 stuff. I wouldn't mind getting that series finished.

    Maybe they'll even re-do the first few seasons of the original 80's stuff in a much better format than all those messy multiple disk volumes that are impossible to track down. Maybe.

    Then again, this is the company that hasn't even released seasonal sets of Fairly OddParents or Danny Phantom yet. Leastwise I haven't seen any.

    Those who bothered to read the article would see that Turtles is going to continue to air on 4kids until next August. As such, it won't effect the upcoming movie.

    I hope they do the property justice. I've never seen Avatar, but I hear good things. I hope they can do the same for the Turtles.

    I don't know what to say. I'm not optimistic enough to say it'll be better then the 4Kids series.

    Just think, it could always be worse. Disney could've picked up the rights to it. I just hope they make it so they it's like Avatar where their consecutive, and not like Spongebob where this episode is totally unrelated to that episode.

    Cool. Guess this means that we get to see how this concept works with a new generation.
