The four turtles, splinter, Casey Jones and April were, but even the foot clan had different outfits. And their major fight was with statues that i have never heard of before. Overall i would say it was ok, probably a 7 out of 10, but i was very disappointed.
For some reason, the movies have never mentioned Krang(the brain dude), he is the one I believe who is responsible for Shredder having such advanced technology. Also, did you watch the movie? The Shredder wasn't in it because he was "dead". I think a major fault with the Turtles is they really have only 1 or 2 major original villains, Krang and Shredder. Bebop and Rocksteady were sort of minions. And for Bebop and Rocksteady, they would have to have a background story with them because not everybody will know about them.
I thought it was awesome myself. Of course every old schooler who grew up with the original cartoon and movies wanted to see some of the old, but I thought it was awesome.
