Ninjara Joins The Mutanimals!


More from the Mutanimals animation style guide. The Arkwind is the team's flagship. Ninjara is, well, Ninjara. The text from her page reads: "When time permits Ninjara has been training Mondo Gecko in the martial art of ninjitsu." Cool!

Thanks vaughn. All this material is just stuffed in boxes or in files and we figure we've held onto it for so long we might as well post it.
It's fun to share it with all of you.
I have a soft spot for the Mutanimals and was disappointed that they never went anywhere.
Playmates stand back then was that most of the characters were already available as toys so why bother developing the property.
They wanted something completely new, that way they could get maximum sales potential with new characters that no one had seen before.

-->> YUO MEAN THIS IS THE STUFF THAT WAS EFFECTED .. i mean .. FROM THE LETTER WRITING CAMPAIGN TO FRED WOLF YEARS AGO ?!

.. i mean .. o i don't know what i mean ..

years ago you guys requested fans send letters to Wolf about the Mutanimals show..


.. >v<

Cowabunga Dude! said...

Yes, tokka. Although Fred Wolf was involved I have memos here stating Ruby Spears is anxious and wants to get going.

Whatever that means.

OK, is there any chance in hell that the Archie series will get the TPB treatment? I only ever picked up the final 2(3?) issues because I thought the art looked neat

Cowabunga Dude! said...

Murph could answer that better. I'll email him.

But I would bet not.

Vaughn Michael said...

Have you thought about trying to rewrite the mutanimals story?
To get them out there I know it may seem a bit crazy but hey I could deal with it and I'm sure the other fans could to.
The only one I could see people having some sort of problem with is Leatherhead because he's still being used in the new toon.
Or well he sort of was he went sort of MIA in the lost season wich really ticked off a bunch of us. It's like they just forgot about him.

Oh yeah. Both Murph and I have been kicking ideas around ever since the Mutanimals died.

But it's up to Mirage and they are not interested.

snogging?

I didn't comment on this one yet? I must have been too overwhelmed with the awesomeness to do so - Thanks for giving another peek!

Murph says:
"There will be a trade collection of selected Archie TMNT issues that relate directly to The Forever War and that will precede the release of TFW by a month or so. Not sure what issues exactly yet though."

Murph said:

"Nope"

Vaughn Michael said...

amazing on the trade...and I'm gonna droll for months over the forever war *prays it comes out*
And lame on the poor Mutanimals not ever getting anything.

OMG! They were gonna have a Mutanimals tv series and Ninjara would have been in it?! Oh man oh man...That would have totally reeked of awesomeness!!! Oh and her cute brother, Naga, could have cameoed right? :D

And they would have HAD to make a Ninjara action figure!

As for Archie TPB's Murphy said months ago that they'll be making some by 2009 when Forever War (which has Ninjara in it) comes out.

I just want a Ninjara action figure darnit! :/
