    If this was the mid-90's it would have been a good thing, in this day and age however its neither a good or bad thing.

    I guess that means THQ will make the games from now on.

    I think it's a great idea. I'd love to see the turtles get revived and become as popular as it was when I was watching them as a kid. I don't know how good or popular the series was on 4Kids though. Anyway cool post.. I love the turtles.

    Well as far as me watching cartoons from NickToons, they can do a great job on the TMNT and not hold back any punches. At least them doing this will give them time to revitalize the series like it was in the old days. X-men Wolverine, anyone? =)

    Wolverine and the X-Men is a well done series but I'm getting the feeling it will be short though since it's close to the halfway point. If this does go on Nicktoons as an exclusive, it will surely be good, trust me TMNT got the best deal, think of what Spiderman is going to get with Disney, they already have one Spiderman series that blows and there will surely be others.

    The franchise was going down hill anyway, this might as well be the curb stomp. I watched it as a kid, but nowadays it seems only capable of crappy video games. By that, I mean current, more recent TMNT games, since the older arcade-style ones were excellent.

    Oh well. I don't really care.

    You'd have gotten the same answer from anybody, what you said was the equivalent of saying "hurr hurr i wonder what an unfunny basement nerd would think of this".

    Well still, if your just going to say ''Who gives a shit?'' Is pretty fucking pointless.

    Enjoyed the cartoons for a short while, but it got boring fast. And I don't see what's the big deal about Nickelodeon buying the turtles. It's the same, right?

    The GBA TMNT that came out in 2007 was a great game.....that was the last TMNT game that was any good that I remember. It was just like the old arcade games.

    You mean the movie one? Yeah, that game was awesome. Freaking great beat-'em-up game. Played Battle Nexus, but it wasn't as good as TMNT.
