FOX (ended 0000)
I have to say I'm definitely not into the other shows on 4Kids (BratZ, Stigma 6, Viva Pinatas and all that other - uh...- junk.) But I'm not sure that it's 4kids fault for the lack of violence. I don't see, either, what the big whoop about blood and gore is. It would be nice if when stabbing and injuries do occur, we get physical evidence instead of straining our eyes over the screen wondering why the character we're watching is suffering when it looks like they don't even have a scratch. But Adding blood and gore for sake of just having lots of blood and gore to throw around isn't what makes a show a good show. If it helps the plot, then ok, if not... what's the freakin' point?
If the show wasn't on 4kids, the sad reality is that it probably wouldn't be on at all. I think it's a great show, there are some things I don't like (ie. the lack of blood when appropriate) but Cartoon Network dropped showing reruns. Even though I'm not sure why, I suspect they believed it wasn't bringing in viewers because it is a what? Y-& rated show? It has specifics it has to meet.

The reason why CN dropped the reruns of TMNT was because it got very low ratings.
If a Kids' WB version of TMNT had been created, it would have been a disaster because the Kid's WB excecutives wanted it to be a light kid-friendly program.
To prove my point, here is the early concept art for the Kid's WB TMNT April, it was done by Warner Brothers Animation:
It was a good for TMNT to be on 4Kids, the program was excellent until unfortunately the Playmates Toys excecutives got involved and ordered the creation of Fast Forward.
|Who's with me in saying that this series should be moved to Adult Swim, that FF should be burned from memory, and that all the other cartoons that were cut because of their logical maturity should be given also to Adult Swim; its about time they had enough shows to showcase on weeknights instead of reruns of Inuyasha.|
|Everytime 4Kids gets their hands on something, expect it to be heavily edited and screwed up. That's how it goes with them.|
Okay cool, but they didn't screwup TMNT2003 until now? So it can't be all bad, they just need to screw there headsback the rightway
Sorry it took me so long to write back, I have the worst work schedule; I completely understand your reluctance to buy cablejust to watch this show, but with Adult Swim if it gets high enough ratings, they eventually come out with a box set; none of this spend 20 bucks just for 3 friggin' episodes, I got The Boondocks and I haven't stop laughing for three months. What my intention for that was to explore the idea of them having enough shows to get their own channel,like it was speculated once. On free TV, we are at the merciless will of so-called family groups ( i.e. MOTHERS AND FATHERS WHO HAVE CHILDREN BUT COULDN'T GET LAID IN A MORGUE organinization.) that seek to destroy shows like this, and thats why FF is considered a actual season.
