I have nothing productive to add other than Casey Jones was and likely will always be my favourite thing about TMNT.

Oh and that he absolutely cut a slit in his tie for his strap to "fit".

EDIT: "Octopus Ink Inc" oh you guys.

He's playable in the new brawler! (As are Splinter and April.)

The little touches on this game are ridiculously good. High-fiving an ally to share some HP with them is fucking brilliant.

Yeah, that'll take some sting out of your little brother grabbing the pizza even though you need it more.

You know, this whole clip has me thinking maybe I should give the original cartoon another chance.

I loved it as a kid, of course, but after a few years I grew to view it as pretty bad (at least in terms of writing; the animation was solid and the voice cast was top-notch). The same warmed-over jokes and catchphrases repeated over and over, with the marketing department clearly steering the ship and the scriptwriters following their lead.

When I've occasionally re-watched an old episode in the years since, it hasn't really changed my opinion; the first couple seasons (before the move to network TV, Saturday mornings, and the fucking grappling hook) aren't as bad as the later ones, but I still have a hard time classifying them as good.

That entire sequence in the YouTube video, though? Fucking gold. Everything about it is great. It's like Batman '66 at its best, this weird heightened reality where colorful costumed characters show up and act deranged and everyone acts like that's just normal.

And yes obviously everybody's just coked out of their minds. Not exactly subtle when you're dealing with a character named Casey Jones whose defining attribute is being high-strung and wanting to fight everybody.

So maybe I should give TOS another shot. Or at least re-watch all the episodes with Casey in them.

...never did finish the 2012 series, though. Maybe I should do that too. I wanna see the Usagi episodes.

And here's a "Casey goes nuts in a corporate office run by aliens" scene from the '03 series:

The best part is even though the mid-level exec hires Casey because of his "ruthless violent attitude" he still sends him down to the mail room.

Casey seems like he's down for doing his job until his boss decides to start harassing him form day one. And he just works in the mailroom! Anyway the moral is if your boss treats you like shit start breaking stuff with a baseball bat

I don't check imgur all that frequently, since it's clogged with political posts which I skip but still hit me just in terms of "shit is still fucked", so.

I don't mind posting here since I only check imgur like, three times a week and then only for maybe 20 minutes until my brain goes "okay, enough doomscrolling that is occasionally interrupted by goth girls or cute animals."

Anyway, here's another from the post you linked down in the comments

behold, the power of corsets
