How did you feel about the TMNT episodes featuring Usagi (“Usagi Yojimbo” and “Usagi Come Home”)?

(WWW Board March 2001) I enjoyed the stories. The animators were fans of Usagi even before they got involved with the Turtles and wanted to retain my design rather than that of the action figure. The scripter had even had the rabbit beat the Turtles, until he got smacked with a pizza, and I approved the script. I don’t know who the voice was but I do remember brainstorming as to how he should sound. A Brooklyn accent was suggested as well as having him speak in Japanese with English subtitles. One guy even suggested he be dubbed like a foreign movie with his mouth out of sync with his words. In the end, we decided on a voice somewhat like Splinter’s. Fred Wolf Film which was also Murakami/Wolf did the animation for the Turtles’ TV series and also did the 3 1/2 minute Space Usagi promo.
