I can't see Nickelodeon giving up TMNT, and allowing Disney or anyone else to make money off TMNT and its marketing, especially since they were the recipients of PR from Disney's sale. I'm confident in saying Viacom would rather just sit on TMNT's IP rights for some years if it ever became unprofitable enough than sell it. What business rationale is there to sell an IP that could then be used against you, as what happened to Disney and Power Rangers?
    "Doug" would be a better example. There's no way that Disney would sell PR to Saban and NOT expect them to want to exploit the brand.

    If the show ends, why would Nickelodeon get rid of the property. If the show runs its course, than Nickelodeon can just put it aside for a while and then just revamp it again like they did with this show. That's the thing about Ninja Turtles. It's been able to get consistently rebooted quite successfully over the last 30 years, aside of the live-action series.

    Look at what Hasbro does with Transformers. Once one era or initiative runs its course, they end it and then revamp and change it up. With Nickelodeon and Ninja Turtles it will essentially be the same.

    To be fair, I don't think "Doug" was ever a profitable property

    Power Rangers is popular, but to Disney it's a rather minor brand, especially when compared to Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars. TMNT, on the other hand, is easily one of Nick's top franchises, partly due to covering way more than the 2012 cartoon. They have merchandising rights to the 80s show, for instance.
