Yeah, I really don't get it. Admittedly, I only saw one of the VHSs for the old series, but it seemed pretty off from the source material, from what I heard.

You know what pisses me off, people that pretend to give a shit about the fact that TMNT was a comic book. Now, maybe you've got a longbox full of 'em, Durr. But, for those of us who didn't have that luxury, the original TMNT was the definitive version.

Now, I don't think the new show is anywhere near one of the worst cartoons ever, but 80 million times better than the original!?!? When the new show outlasts the run of the original, moves as much merchandise, or spawns movies that rake in cash, then you could argue it's maybe on par with it.

And besides, why the hell should any adult accept that a modern Saturday morning cartoon is better than one they grew up with? It's hard to really enjoy a show made for children when you're not a child.

Again, Pacman, why must you equate success to quality?

I'm flattered you follow my posts so closely. I have to ask, what's your formula for figuring out how good a Saturday morning cartoon is? Anyone who's sitting down with a pen and pad breaking these things down and not getting paid for it is doing it wrong. If you want to talk awards, there was no Emmy for cartoons during the original show's run and the new one has been overlooked I'm sure, not receiving so much as a nomination. I'm sure they've at least gotten nominated for an Annie Award- let me check. WHAT!? No? While successful (and apparently terrible) shows like Family Guy and SpongeBob Squarepants are multiple time winners! Pfft... stupid professional critics and stupider everybody else who watches these shows and buys their merchandise. Thank goodness there are anonymous forum visitors who are hard at work to correct these oversights.

In direct response to your statement: Why aren't the Detroit Lions successful? Because their players and coaches aren't quality.

EDIT: or whatever the Canadian Football League equivalent is. Matter of fact, let's just say that the reason the NFL is more successful than the CFL is because the NFL has higher quality play and players.

EDIT: or whatever the cheese, hockey, or Rush equivalent is.
