    The Ninja Turtles are back with a new season in August, and with a brand new look, no less.

    The official TMNT blog updates every Thursday with new character designs, with Splinter presumably coming up next.

    Discuss any aspect of the new season here.

    The blog didn't update today, though. :sad:

    And will it really premiere in August? September seems more likely.

    August? Awesome. But September would be more than fine.

    I like the new designs pretty well. They're much better than the Fast Forward designs though that's not saying much.

    I think the designs look pretty nice. I hope the actual animation doesn't look cheap though, I hate the thought that TMNT might end up looking like a flash cartoon. :sad:

    Michelangelo looks very weird. He really looks like an idiot and is going to throw up. And the face makes me laugh.

    Yes it did. :sweat:

    The fact that they're actually using the Volume 4 design for Splinter this season is a bit surprising. I mean, has enough time really passed between Fast Forward and this to have Splinter sporting a long white beard?

    I have high hopes for this season, so they'd better not let me down.

    I really like the beard thing he has going on now.

    Too bad we won't be seeing too much of Splinter this season, his design looks pretty cool.

    Even in the new design Raph doesn't look taller or bigger, just out or proportion.

    I like the splinter design, too. Excited to see this new series. Are they really gonna air in august? Feels like they're just gonna run short on episodes again like Fast Forward did.

    I'm glad that I'm not the only one who noticed that Raph is now the same height, but also buffer than the other guys :).

    I will say it once again, though. I HATE cheap (or as some call it, 'stylized') looking animation. If the show makes it to the 25th anniversary, please go back to Season 1 animation..

    Well Ninja Turtles 2 did inspire the designs for Tokka and Rahzar, and even the 87 series had them in an ep together, although much smarter. As for the August date for it, why not? The last "new" ep that came out was Zixxth Sense, and that was October of last year. Why wait for 2009 to have the new season, unless they want to do the same thing with Ninja Turtles that Fox is doing with 24 and ABC's doing with Lost by taking a year off.

    I believe Dan said the new season will start in September, although 4kids might want to "preview" the first episode in August or something.

    This is only a 13 ep season, so 4kids is going to run out of eps fairly quickly if they air them ahead of time.

    Oh, these were posted before, I think, but I guess it's worth posting them again.

    And Casey & April:

    Ironically, April actually looks much younger...to me at least. :sweat:

    April looks like she came from Winx Club. Maybe Casey too.

    The strange thing is that, if the chronology of the show really does go by a "one season = one year" rule, she should be in her late 20's-early 30's by now. :sweat:
