TMNT Cartoon for adults

by Nicksolo85 | created - 04 May 2012 | updated - 20 Oct 2012 | Public

My ideal voice cast for an adult oriented Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon which would be darker, more serious & less goofy & contain blood, swearing & characters actually dying.

Not to be confused with my TMNT movie cast which would be live action (with or without CGI turtles, Splinter & masked Foot Soldiers).

WARNING: Yes I will be using some (more like a lot of) people from that list and/or past incarnations of TMNT cartoons & the CGI movie.

I will add more if I think of any (I also welcome suggestions)
