CEE folks, anyone else remember CANAL+ airing TMNT in the '90s or was I imagining stuff?
If you were writing about cartoon series, none of them aired in C+ over here. The 1987 show aired in the voice-over version on TVP1 in years 1991-1992 and later on TVP2 in years ca. 1992-1996.

However, if you were writing about the movies, Canal+ Poland aired only four TMNT movies:
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) - premiere on C+: 24th June 1996
  • Teenage Mutant NInja Turtles III (1993) - premiere on C+: 9th August 1998 (yes, C+ PL has never shown the 2nd movie)
  • TMNT (2007) - premiere on C+: 2nd March 2008
  • Teenage Mutant NInja Turtles - premiere on C+: 25th April 2015 (Canal+ couldn't air the sequel, as in ca. 2016 the premium TV rights to Paramount films shifted from Canal+ Poland to HBO Poland).

. Hm. And you are 100% certain? Was there just one Canal+ feed in the '90s? And could have Canal+ been involved with TMNT in any way like distribution, etc.?
In the 90s (before they integrated the Filmnet channels), there were only few feeds of Canal+ in Europe: Canal+ France, Canal+ Belgium, Canal+ Poland, Canal+ Spain, but the only Canal+ feed available in the CEE region after all was Canal+ Poland which was received only in and dedicated only to Poland.
And could have Canal+ been involved with TMNT in any way like distribution, etc.?
No, they didn't distribute the TMNT movies in Poland at all. In fact, C+ often makes deals with distributors (like Universal, Fox or Paramount), which provide the network exclusive first-run rights on Polish TV to various features and some series. However, the Polish Canal+ also makes co-productions, but only on Polish movies and series.
