Usagi Yojimbo

Netflix is developing an animated series based on the manga, and sometimes TMNT guest.

Well… kinda. Creator Stan Sakai and James Wan, among others, are set to be on the production staff, but the series (called Samurai Rabbit: The Usagi Chronicles) will focus on a DESCENDANT (Yuichi) of Yojimbo, and not the anthropomorphized rabbit in the title. Interesting choice.
