Murphy::"TMNT to move from Fox to The CW in '08


Breaking news (from Kidscreen.
com):


"It looks like the 2007-08 season will be the last for top-rated Saturday morning terrestrial block Kids' WB! Fledgling net The CW, spawned from the merger of UPN and The WB in 2006, will be dropping the block as of the 2008-09 season in favor of 4Kids Entertainment programming, which currently airs on Fox on Saturday mornings. 4Kids has effectively doubled its terrestrial presence by striking a five-year deal with The CW to program its Saturday morning kids block, as it's also renewed its current agreement with Fox for the 2008-09 season.


"The planned five hour 4Kids block on The CW will air between 7 a.m. and 12 p.m. 4Kids will take care of national ad sales, but will share revenue from the block with The CW, applying the net's portion against a guarantee.


"As for the programming lineup, expect 4Kids stalwarts like Yu-Gi-Oh! and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to populate the block, however a set sked has yet to be hammered out.""

Murph:: TMNT: Overload... not


A month or so ago the producers/creative team at 4Kids Productions pitched their second idea (the first - codenamed "Superworld" - having been rejected by Mirage) for the 2008 TMNT cartoon season... TMNT: Overload.


The basic idea behind Overload is that the Turtles, while traveling through time on their return home from the Fast Forward future, briefly get stuck in the past alongside their "kid" selves, and then, thanks to the quantum mechanics of villainous plot shenanigans, all 8 turtles arrive in the year 2008 ("home").


Excerpted from the pitch materials:


"An incredibly powerful digital villain has taken over the World Wide Web, then sets his sights on the real world...


"The turtles take on their greatest (and most annoying) opponents ever... themselves as kids!"


Think "adventures in babysitting" and you've got the gist.


Anyway, while Overload got approved by Mirage - with a few minor revisions - the folks at Playmates Toys absolutely hated the concept. Among other reasons, Playmates thought the concept would create "market confusion" for the young children that comprise their core buyer segment; that is, that kids would get confused with there being two Leonardos, etc., and that the "kid turtles" would be "anti-aspirational."


Overload was then mothballed and Playmates made their own creative pitch for the 2008 cartoon season, one that got soundly rejected by both Mirage and 4Kids. (The Playmates pitch reached back deeply into the universes of both the original cartoon series and the Archie comics.)


So... where does that leave us? With 4Kids about to pitch their third idea...


To be continued.




((AND SO..the FOLLOWING DAY.. ))


Ultimate TMNT (also not)


Since we're on the topic of failed TMNT cartoon pitches, I'll share with you what little I can with regards to Playmates Toys' recent pitch for the 2008 toon season, working title "Ultimate TMNT."


Ultimate was an attempt "to bring the TV and CGI movie universes together" (pitch materials quote), albeit with a creative focus on and a tweaking of the original cartoon series, upping the humor level of the current series while still trying to walk the grungy streets of the original comic and recent movie.


Many past characters from various universes make their appearance. Most notable amongst the TMNT's regular allies are Usagi Yojimbo (shown here, and © Stan Sakai), Tattoo, Mondo Gecko and Hamato Yoshi/Splinter (toon origin version). Amongst the villains are Shredder (natch), Ruin (formerly Mutagen Man), Rat King, Slash and, um, Wingnut and Screwloose.


"For the first time ever... the turtles will be drawn and written as real teenagers. Their personalities and relationships will still be developing, their abilities and roles will still be growing and their training will be more intense than ever."


And so it goes... into the dustbin of TMNT business history.
