    It was your signature I was talking about. I just didn't mention you directly since it seemed rude to me.

    I remember the TMNT GameBoy games more, and I played TMNT and Turtles in Time in arcade. So many tokens

    The 2003 cartoon was overseen somewhat directly by Peter Laird, so while it differs from the comics in significant ways, it is as faithful to the original vision as kid appropriate programming could possibly be. Michael Dooney did the character designs, so the look is closer to his issues of the comics than to the usual Eastman/Laird/Lawson look. An awesome thing they did with it was to take several of the various unrelated stories from the Mirage comics and tie them together into more coherent overall story arcs. If the 1987 cartoon was the "Super Friends" of TMNT, the 2003 series is the Justice League Unlimited of the franchise, and my personal favorite.

    The current show is great. Production-wise, it is a much better show than the 2003 series. In general, it tends to take the core story concepts of the the 1987 cartoon (Krang instead of Utroms, animal-contact mutagen, Hamato Yoshi as Splinter), reinvent them to meet the needs of more modern adventure cartoons, and wrap them in a 3D CGI presentation directly inspired by the look and feel of the Mirage comics. It also borrows some story events from the early Mirage comics that I wouldn't have expected. The end result is a lot like the 2007 CGI film from Imagi. The one downside for me is that since Glenn Murakami (Teen Titans) is directing it, some of his stylistic quirks that have always rubbed me the wrong way sometimes show through. Be prepared for a few pseudo-anime wild takes, and the occasional jerky move-stop-move action scenes (Genndy Tartakovsky seems to love these too. Drives me nuts.) Thankfully, he's toned these waaaaaaaay down since Teen Titans. If you enjoyed the 2007 movie, you should give this show a chance.

    Remember the original NES game for TMNT? That game was so hard. If any of you are a fan of that, there's a guy over that OC:Remix webiste http://ocremix.org/ that does a few of those tunes. He's got one on his official album he released called 'NESteryears'. You should check it out. It's pretty good.

    You can listen to it here: http://music.gamechops.com/album/nesteryears (music player at the top. The track is called: ' Killer Seaweed'). I remember that area. It was so hard to navigate through that in the amount of time they gave you to disarm the bombs.

    that NES game (no matter how hard and bad it was) it kept me playing the game even more, motivated by mikey! that was until i fully experienced the first TMNT arcade game when i was at a local mall, i realized that there were better TMNT games out there! and then when TMNT 'turtles in time' came out for SNES, i was on the game forever!

    Wearing a TMNT shirt right now, I'm head admin at a TMNT Wiki, and this is a wall in my spare room (or it was a few months ago. It's full now):

    Just saw the teaser for the live action movie. It's not the direction I would've gone with it conceptually, but it looks like the humor is in the right place. I'll give it a chance.
