Teenage Mutant Nickelodeon Turtles: These Are the Reptiles We Remember
by A Real Person on June 22, 2012
The Michael Bay-produced live-action movie that may or may not have made the heroes in a half-shell into aliens has been put on hold for now, but that doesn’t mean no more Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. On the contrary – here’s your first look at the new CG cartoon versions as they’re going to appear in a new Nickelodeon series. The bright colors and anime-style action shots, combined with computer graphics, is a new look that takes a little while to adjust to, but what with the Turtles sporting their familiar color coded bandanas, designated roles within the team (Donatello’s still the brains, Mike has not stopped being a party dude), and love for pizza, it’s clear there haven’t been many liberties taken with the ingredients we always knew.
Plus Shredder looks particularly intimidating, and the vernacular has even been updated to include newer slang terms like, ahem, “Booyakasha!” Even weapon-slinging reptiles dig Ali G., it seems.
