    I don't know how many of you have seen the later seasons of the show, 1992 onward, but one of the things that bothers me is replacement voices..

    Raphael had three replacement voices during the course of the show. One for the 1989 season, one for the European episodes, and one for the 1996 season.

    Donatello had one replacement voice. One for 1989, and one for the European ep.

    Shredder had two(three?) replacement voices. One for 1989, one for European, and one for 1994/96 seasons..

    In speaking with the original voice of Donatello, Barry Gordon, I learned that he did indeed re-record some of those episodes that he missed originally in 1989, and would love to redoo the one he missed from 1992. I'm curious to see if James Avery and Rob Paulsen also eventually rerecorded the shows they missed, and if these recordings still exist?

    If the later seasons get released, it would be great to have the entire original voice cast present for the entire series. THe replacements, in most cases, arn't bad, but don't compare to the originals....

    Anyone know who at Artisan Ent we should contact to find this info out?

    That's interesting. I also noticed the voice changes when watching this as a kid.

    Has your interview with Barry Gordon been published somewhere. I would be interested in reading it.


    Also, what exacltly are the "European" episodes? Were they only shown in Europe, or were they created in Europe? (Or take place in Europe?)

    The Europe Versions were the uncensored naughtier versions deemed too inappropriate for the US.

    Several scenes are missing in action such as the infamous April O'Neal nipple scene.

    I have the complete TMNT releases on DVD so far, all the volumes, etc. I love the show so much, it would be great to have the original voice actors redo'ing tracks.

    >>>

    http://www.ninjaturtlesnetwork.com Interview link in menu, it's in there somewhere with all the other links [​IMG].

    Apparently first created so the Europe nations could have new episodes first, or at least that's what I've been able to find out. THe turtles travel to Europe for 13 or so episodes....

    Who did George Takei play? (I looked on IMDB and couldn't find anything.)
