Ever since I heard that the WB was interested in making a TMNT show and revive the franchise I was hoping it would come out on CN. Since day one of the 4kids series I was hoping it would end up on CN (more specifically Toonami). Heck man I wanted and still want the original show on CN. So having the new TMNT series ending up on CN is quite a treat!
This week we get the first taste of this excellent series. Bare in mind these first episodes are not the crowing achievement for the series but they do set things up nicely and have a few things that older fans will find quite entertaining.
If you have never seen the new series then I give you fare warning that this show is NOT the old show in any way shape or form, but you may find it even better because there is more action and a better blend of comedy and action.
Now to break it down...
12/29 - Things Change
In the opener the turtles get their home trashed by some unnivited guests and tangle with the Purple Dragons and some Foot ninjas. Look for the cameo of Eastmen and Laird.
12/30 - A Better Mouse Trap
12/31 - Attack of the Mousers
01/01 - Meet Casey Jones - Based on the Mirage comics Raphael one shot
01/02 - Nano
So there you have it. I hope you enjoy TMNT this week. Catch it at 4pm right before Totally Spies and Toonami.

I'll be watching as well.. I think I've only seen like 2 episodes during its' FoxBox run so these will most likely be 'NEW to ME!'....

Some advice Hyper Luigi:
You did a good job with this. However, you should put the synopsis of the episode an hour or two before the actual showing of the episode. I think it's better that way. That's what I did with "Clone Wars." But if you don't want to follow my advice that's fine.
Well you can expect the Review Queen to review them. I riemember seeing parts of episodes and thinking they were good. Hopefully, the entire episode is good as well.
That's true. I'll remember that future reference. Thanks.Originally Posted by Corrado

Turtles Episode Review
Of "Things Change"
And Things Change Indeed
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES!!!
Heh, sorry about the title. You know, the theme song of the show bugged me at first, but then remembering it, it's pretty catchy. And the show's not bad itself. In fact, it's pretty damn good. Watching a good amount of 4Kids shows, I could recongnize many of the voices (For example, Raphel equals Gruff Tristan from Yu-Gi-Oh, and Splinter equals the Old Ninja Pegagus also from Yu-Gi-Oh) but the VA's did a very good job. The voices actually sounded somewhat diffrent then a normal 4Kid production, and the dialogue flowed very smoothly. (I espically liked Michaelanglo's one liners. "I call this room! See this space here, also mine!"). I also liked how they hooked you in by showing the middle of the episode before the theme and then showing how it progressed to the fight with the Purple Dragons. (Not much of a threat, but hey, when it's humans vrs Turtles, turtles come out on top). Of course, the real fun began when the Foot Ninjas came in. Why did they come and what was there purpose? No one knows yet (excpet the people who watched the episodes after this) but they were effective. Thanks to large numbers and ninja skills, they nearly got the Turtles until they escaped. Highlights include The 4 training with Splinter in the beginning, fighting of those robot bugs, Raphel sneaking around to a manhole cover and then hiding in the van, Donatello's skills at opening the lock, returning the money to the poilceman, and the Turtles checking out there new crib. Overall, a very nice beginning to what I feel will be a great show. Thanks for the teaser CN and thank you for acquiring this show. A
Those metal things reminded me of the petbombs from that Brak game on adultswim.com
The dialogue was good. Surprising for a 4Kids show.
The puns/jokes were funny. "Walk this way." "What the shell are they."
Today's episode was funny(good) and I look forward to seeing the next four.
this show is great and it only gets better!

Meh. It was alright. I expect it to get better as it goes along. I hate the theme song.

What time is it on?Originally Posted by Shadowy Figure
Don't look at this space.
All this week it's on at 4 P.M Eastern Standard Time on CN. It's a stealth premiere, which means that it isn't advertised, but you should still catch it if you want to see it.
I'd say the coolest line in the first episode would be...
"Are those guys ninajs?" - Leonardo
"Well, they're certainly ninja-esque..." - Michelangelo
Here's a run down of the voices just in case you haven't read yet...
Leonardo - Trey Racer from Shaman King
Donatello - A few minor villians in YGO and other shows but not notable
Raphael - Tristan from Yu-Gi-Oh!
Michelangelo - Joey from Yu-Gi-Oh! and Lance from Pokemon
Splinter - Peguasus from Yu-Gi-Oh!
Casey - The dugeon dice monster guy from Yu-Gi-Oh! (what's his name agian?)
April - Ash, Ash's mom, May and a few others from Pokemon
Shredder - Some various voices on Pokemon (or that's what they say)
Baxter Stockman and Hun you probably wont recognize
Misc voices - Eric Stuart as usual
Possibly one of Cops, Jack Kirby, and a few minor roles later in the series - Our friend Mike (it sounds like him to me)
Duke Devlin? That is the same name from the star of that crappy stunt show cartoon HB made in the 70's.
Is that his real name translated or did they steal that from the old HB show?
"Is that his real name translated or did they steal that from the old HB show?"
I highly doubt that Duke Devlin's parents knew about the "Duke Devlin" TV show.
It's a coincidence.
