I really enjoyed the original TMNT cartoon. It was just a good balance of ninjas, fighting, and silliness. The comic by Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird was altogether different in it's grit and all-around dirtiness, which is something else that I loved. Having a property that could hit both ends of the General to possibly Rated R audience is quite an awesome spectacle.
This coming weekend I shall be in the Artist's Alley of Con-G in lovely Guelph, Ontario. You can find out about it by visiting here: http://www.con-g.com It should be lots of fun! The guest of honour is Rob Paulsen who has the very unique position of being the only actor to voice two different Turtles in separate cartoons - Raph in the first and Donatello in the current!
