Hello Fellows!
My name is Lily and I am a 22 year old Canadian lass. I model, cry about comic books, and talk a lot about TMNT



Sebastian Stan’s name is alliterative and he could just be a marvel character on his own like how billy batson in DC was so nice a wizard gave him magic that could be Sebastian Stan

Also I prefer actual voice actors to big names in my shows, since the voice actors can legitimately voice act and don’t just bring their name and a higher budget to a show
Having big names doesn’t make something not brainless like have you seen since if the movies that exist in the world
Bleh
2012 is a million times inferior to 2003 but I save that opinion for UNTAGGED posts like this
My other post is about sharing a series I love not bashing the terrible racist sexist current series. I do that in posts like this at 2:30 am when I am bothered and would much rather be thinking about happy things like my kitten or DC villains.
Bleh.
Also untagged. Complain to the staff is this always in the tags.

Final note: 2012 is successful because nikelodeon has marketed it like crazy because they know a cash cow when they see it whereas 2003 wasn’t marketed like at all and the people who watched it saw it and stayed purely for the brilliance.

Also note how I’m not tagging this so don’t come crying to me if this shows up in the tags, take it up with the staff.

Someday I’ll make a giant post about how 2012 is an over rated attempt to make money wearing the tmnt name, but today is not that day. Good night all

Maybe I’ll dream about the Riddler or something far less drama-y

Anyone new to tmnt, I give this advice: do not start with the 2k12 series.
Start with the 2003 series. It is well written and follows the original comic books very well. It respects it’s audience by having great supporting characters, most of whom are not white (god bless), really well written…

If you like the 2003 series better, there’s nothing wrong with that, but your reasoning is a bit faulty.  The 2003 version has just as many non-Caucasian characters as the 2012 version and if we’re going to compare the amount of non-human characters, last I checked, 2003 was literally a zoo.  Also, the 2012 version is following just as many elements of the comics as the 2003 version, not to mention 2012 literally isn’t even finished with its second season.  I don’t recall the 2003 series ever being nominated for an Emmy, either..but I could be wrong.  I also don’t think major actors like Sean Astin, Seth Green, and Jason Biggs would agree to be part of a project that you find so brainless.  Not to mention the original voice actors from the 80’s series making a cameo, Robbie Rist will be making a cameo soon, along with Corey Feldman’s existing cameo.  There’s a reason 2012 is so successful and that is evident on the amount of effort that’s been put into it by people who are already a huge foundation of the franchise to begin with.  Not saying your opinion is wrong, just saying that 2012 is what it is.  

OH MY GOD I WROTE A BIG AWESOME REPLY TO THIS ABOUT HOW I’M NOT TRYING TO DIS 2012 JUST PROMOTE 2003 AND HOW THE SHOWS HAVE ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FORMULAS ( MUTANT-A-WEEK VS LONG STORY ARCS) SO THEY ARE DIFFERENT DOWN TO THE CORE AND HOW THAT DIFFERENCE ISN’T BAD IT’S JUST DIFFERENT AND HOW I JUST WANT PEOPLE TO LOVE TMNT LIKE I DO SO I 100%THINK 2003 IS THE BEST PLACE TO START AND HOW I PERSONALLY ENJOY 2012 WAY MORE BECAUSE OF MY FAMILIARITY WITH THE SERIES ALREADY BECAUSE OF LITTLE QUIRKS AND REFERENCES
AND TUMBLR ERASED IT
I WAS ELOQUENT AND REREAD IT TO MAKE SURE THE WORDS WERE PRETTY
AND TALKED ABOUT HOW 2003 IS THE PERFECT INTRO AND PEOPLE WILL GET MORE OUT OF 2012 AND 87 IF THEY WATCH 2003 FIRST BECAUSE IF HOW CLOSELY IT FOLLOWS THE COMICS
AND HOW TMNT IS RAD ALL AROUND AND I JUST WANT TO HELP SHARE SOMETHING I LOVE
AND
TUMBLR
ERASED
IT

I worked to hard to make it pretty and nice with the words and shit. weh. wehhhhh. and now it’s after 2am. Wehh. I’m going to sleep now. Stupid tumblr mobile.

Anyone new to tmnt, I give this advice: do not start with the 2k12 series.
Start with the 2003 series. It is well written and follows the original comic books very well. It respects it’s audience by having great supporting characters, most of whom are not white (god bless), really well written story and character arcs, and actual continuity between these arcs.
It is not flooded with unnecessary mutants everywhere, drowned by pop culture references meant to be jokes, and does not treat women like nice shiny male plot devices.

2003 series treats it’s audience like they are people who have brains and know how to use them. Honestly the respect the writers had for the audience is one of the best things about the series. It’s a lot like Batman the Animated Series, Gargoyles, Green Lantern the Animated Series, and basically any other animated show that cared more about good writing than pop culture and poop jokes. The creators and writers can about the story, not the toys and money.

That is all.

I’ve been debating about giving this series another try. I watched it when it originally aired for awhile, but stopped once aliens were involved. I mean, we already have mutated turtle men, why do we need aliens? But I didn’t know shit about the comic and how alien-heavy it was. Anyway I’m still not sure ‘cause it’s long and there does seem to be a lot of BS in it (like don’t they become dragons or something ridiculous? Fuck that).

But for all of 2012’s problems I still really like it. It made me feel like a kid again watching the original 80’s show and 2003 never did that.

The dragons are literally at the end of the whole series like the last episode I think. It is not a regular appearance and trust me when i say after the whole big build up the dragon were fucking BADASS (definitely ridiculous though)

The show is HELLA close to the comics like THE FUGITOID AND THE TRICERATON WARS AND SHIT IS SO EARLY IN THE ORIGINAL COMICS I WAS SHOCKED LIKE VOLUME 1: FIGHT AND KILL SHREDDER VOLUME 2: MOUSERS AND APRIL O’NEIL VOLUME 3: FIND SPLINTER VOLUME 4: ACROSS THE UNIVERSE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TRICERATON/FEDERATION WAR I’M NOT EVEN JOKING IT HAPPENS LIKE RIGHT AWAY.

Ahem.

2003 isn’t a kids show directed at JUST kids, it’s a show that adult can enjoy too. It’s a kids show that wanted to tell cohesive linear stories. It’s not a “Mutant a Week” show. It really does remind me of Batman the Animated Series in how shamelessly dark it got sometimes.

The only BS in it for me is the Fast Forward arcs, where the show tried to be more for kids and less about TMNT (Though i still enjoyed the story arcs). Back to the Sewers was OK and had a LOT of fun in it, but on a whole I think that the series had just been really criticized for how dark it was so they had to lighten it up. THAT’S MY THEORY ANYWAYS.

LETS BE REAL. A SHOW WHERE LEATHERHEAD HAS BEEN TAKEN BY THE GOVERNMENT AND TORTURED AND DISSECTED AND STUDIED FOR GOD KNOWS HOW LONG, THUS RESULTING IN CRAZY PTSD? NOT INTENDED FOR TINY KIDS LEARNING THAT DRUGS ARE BAD AND WEEKLY. Not to mention how the first time Stockman fail the Shredder he had Hun remove Stockman’s eye WITH A POWER DRILL.

2003 got REALLY dark sometimes.

BUT THAT’S WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT. IT DIDN’T FUCK AROUND. 

2003 TMNT can make me cry with it’s emotional character arcs and episodes that I’m pretty sure were written just to make the audience sad (SEE: NANO. GODDAMN NANO MAKES ME CRY EVERY TIME LIKE WHO WROTE THIS WEH).

I get that some people prefer the Weekly Mutant sort of Saturday morning cartoon to the darker plot-driven series.

But for new people who want to get into TMNT? I highly recommend the series where the writers had stories to tell, drew from the original comics (LIKE I WAS SHOCKED WHEN I REALIZED JUST HOW MUCH OF 2003 WAS FROM THE COMICS), and generally cared more about continuity and writing than the general Weekly Mutant Adventures.

I personally enjoy the Weekly Mutant Adventures more after getting to know the characters sooo well through the 2003 series. (EXAMPLE: KNOWING RAPH’S HATRED OF BUGS MADE THE COCKROACH TERMINATOR EPISODE 5000000x MORE FUNNY THAN IF I HADN’T KNOWN THAT ABOUT HIS CHARACTER.)

I think the only reason that I CAN still find enjoyment in some of 2012 TMNT is because I know all of the little quirks they are throwing in there. 

This is why I recommend 2003 first, it’s just the best introduction, and then you can go from there

WARNING FOR LOUD NOISES
Hiccup fell asleep on my lap.

WATCH THE KITTEN VIDEO INSTEAD OF GETTING MAD ABOUT TURTLES OKAY? OKAY.

 BAH;  

Also consider that we are talking about fictional humanoid mutant turtle brothers you like to imagine kissing and fucking so
Yeah
Definitely something worth getting upset over

I just wish I knew why my conversations appeared in the tags like I specifically didn’t tag them to avoid this.
I REMEMBER THINKING “DON’T TAG THESE” AND THEN I DIDN’T TAG THEM I MADE THE CONSCIOUS DECISION TO NOT TAG THEM.

The tumblr gods want to anger the tcesters in my name.
