Was the character published in comics by a (then) smaller publisher (like Dark Horse Comics, Image Comics, New England Comics Press or Mirage Studios (yes, those are/were real companies)) as opposed to Marvel/DC/Archie?

Trivia: Some Dark Horse Comics into a movie include Timecop, 300, SinCity and Hellboy.
A New England Comics Press character in a cartoon/movie/TV was The Tick (where we find Chaiface Chippendale).
Some Image Comics characters in cartoons/movies/TV were Spawn, Witchblade, Savage Dragon and The Walking Dead (yes, it was a comic first).
A comic into movies/cartoons from Mirage Studios is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.

Some other publishers, from back in the day, include: NOW Comics, WeeBee Comics, Mad Monkey Press, Raging Rhino Productions and Cartoon Books.

This is a great question, and being a comic book fan, I can appreciate the historical connotation. However, that doesn't make it any easier to answer! Very Happy

Historically speaking, the comic's original publisher would have been considered quite small. As it grew in popularity, much larger companies got involved.

Again, great question, tough to pin done precisely, especially within the limitations of a 'yes' or 'no' answer. Wink

I should have asked for originally. Is it Casey Jones from TMNT?
If not, any superpowers?

Hint time:

This characters' first animated appearance is actually much earlier, however, because the earlier program changed many of the stories and plots from the original comic, purists don't consider it "canon." But don't worry, most only know of the latter series anyway.

Also, two additional hints have been given. One within this topic thread, the other in the last episode of "Guess That Cartoon Character." Wink

Was the comic originally from the 70s or earlier?

Its original run ended in the '70s. Its debut was earlier.

Is it a DC Comics character? (And to clarify, I'm talking in general terms and technicalities, including characters that were gained by DC buying out smaller comic companies....)

Not on a team. But considered a good friend to the main character.

No DC association, ever.

To clarify an earlier MacGyver question, has this character ever been in a Marvel comic? Even if Marvel was only a licensed creator.

Is it Cuthbert Calculus?

If not, is the cartoon series by Nelvana?

Is it possibly Chang Chong-Chen?

If not, are there any movie versions of the show?
