I would thoroughly enjoy Mikey's ebullient behavior so much more if they didn't feel the need to explain it by having him be stupid. A bubbly personality doesn't automatically mean that someone is a halfwit, which seems to be what Nick is trying to say.
Just when I see an episode where they seem to be allowing his character more growth, they slip back into the 'Mikey is slapstick humor' mold. I want a three-dimensional Michelangelo, not a character who has been relegated to the role of everyone's idea of a joke.
well someone had too say it and it really irks me too cause *rant start* originally mikey is the most talented of the turtle (excepted for his lack of focus) and it really bugs me too that raph is ALWAYS angry or that leo has no idea what his doing or... or *sigh* ya know what I just don't like how ANY of them are depicted in the nick version. And it bugs me even more that the storys are actually good!!!*rant end*
Well I think I've said all I have to say hehe *sweat drop*.
but good point!
I could rant on the subject of how Raph is always made out to be a brute who never thinks anything through and that isn't true either. Humor is a great thing, but not at the expense of making a character stupid in order to get a laugh. I want to see character growth more than anything, which means I want them all to get better and cut out the inconsistencies.
Thank you! I think if each of them didn't have both a heart and a mind they'd be dead - that's just logic.
