MIchelangelo Gif by Theresmorethanme MIchelangelo Gif by Theresmorethanme
This turtle by far was my least favorite in the 2003 cartoon. HE WAS SO ANNOYING. I literally wanted to smack 2003 Mikey upside the head.

2012 Mikey is sooooo.....much more tolerable. If anything, people love love love 2012 Mikey. And I know it's not because the show likes to portray him as being stupid. Personally, I don't think Mikey is stupid. If anything he's very naive and/or doesn't care. I mean who cares about science when you've got Donatello around?

I've seen way to many fanart portraying Mikey as this cute unappreciated brother who just wants to be loved. Actually the adorable fragile Mikey gets kind of annoying. Because frankly, Mikey is a lot more badass than we give him credit for.

I could not keep a straight face while making this. This is more of a compliment rather than an insult. But Mikey is kind of a dork.

Disclamer: I don't own any part of the TMNT franchise.

These screen caps from the 2012 show were edited a lot more than you think.

Someone type in "Donatello Meets Ugusami" please!? I worked on it myself. I need others opinions to see what I did wrong, or even whether they like it or not.

He's just an adorable goof ball! And he's completely sweetie in the 2012 series. Greg Cipes is the absolute perfect actor for him because he isn't annoying; he's quite endearing!

I never liked the 2k3 Mikey either, the 87, 2k7, and 2012 ones are the best in my opinion.

Plus, this Mikey is like a peanut: Nutty (of course), awkward, sweet & salty, and cute.^^

2k3 Mikey is actually what made me originally fall in love with the character Michelangelo but looking back I also find him kind of annoying. His voice was so ridiculously exaggerated, cliche, and stereotypical. 2k12 Mikey sounds more realistic and natural when he talks. I <3 him.

Well 2003 Mikey could have been worse. I have seen a worse incarnation of Mikey. But the 80's Mikey, especially for that time was pretty good. I don't know why he was less annoying. Both the 80's and 2003 Mikey have exaggerated surfer accents (that's not really an accent is it?) 

But I love the 2012 Mikey. Having someone who was actually a professional surfer (Greg Cipes) do his voice made more sense. It was more tolerable. And the voice actor didn't have to force himself to sound like a surfer.

Greg Cipes, in my opinion, has done the best reincarnation of Mikey I've seen yet. And the great thing is he uses his natural voice and somehow it just suits his character PERFECTLY. 

I also hated Raph in 2k3. In fact, until this series came out, I never liked Raphael at all, especially in 2k3. His voice and accent were TERRIBLY exaggerated as well as his "hot headedness". It seemed unrealistic as a character. I think 2k12 is the first incarnation to nail it. Like I said, I HATED him in the other two series and I LOVE him in 2k12.

For some odd reason I love Greg Cipes in everything that he was ever in. I like him and knew about him even before TMNT2012 came out. 

Raph in the 80's version in my opinion was worse than the 2003 Raph. Although no offense to Rob Paulsen. It just sounded weird hearing Raph with his voice. In the year 2013 Rob Paulsen makes a great Donatello. Some fans heard about Rob Paulsen being in the 2012 incarnation, and thought he should be playing Raphael. But in all honesty, Rob Paulsen wouldn't make a good Raphael anymore. Donatello is his character. 2003 Raph I was okay with. Yeah.....I didn't really like his voice. But it was tolerable.

Oh gosh so do I. I loved him in Teen Titans and though his music is a bit cheesy I love his singing voice!

I didn't like Rob Paulsen as Raph either. I've heard him do so many voices throughout the years and none of them are suited to playing the"hothead". He makes a great nerd though. Lol. His voice is just so high pitched and non threatening.

80's Raph was comic relief (he wasn't funny BTW) rather than hotheaded. If Raph was his regular hotheaded character, Rob Paulsen probably wouldn't have voiced him. But Rob Paulsen as Donatello is spot on. :meow:

A lot of people have complained about the casting of all of the turtles in this series except Mikey's voice, but I like all of the voices chosen for each of the turtles. I like that they sound more realistic rather than so "cartoon-y".

You'd being around Donnie would motivate you to be more studious. But I honestly think he has the opposite effect on Mikey.

Really now. :iconverynotimpressedplz:

I hate science. Rly. And I doubt Donnie would be a good tutor, even if he wasn't giving them officially, and was just doing impressive things out in the open.

If Donnie AND Mikey were around, I'd probably spend more time with Mikey.

If it were just Donnie, I'd crack open a Pepsi, order some pizza, and watch whatever was on. Even if it were Space Heroes.

I rly hate science. Rly.
