rather waitFeb 07, 2013
By Mark Rodriguez
I love the show, I really do, and have been anxious for when it would finally be available on DVD... but for only 6 episodes... I'd rather hold out and wait for the season 1 set.

Heroes in a Half-Shell...Turtle Power!Feb 20, 2013
By Charlie F.
When I first found out about the new Ninja Turtles Nicktoon, I was excited! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was one of my favorite cartoon series growing up and the new Nicktoon was something to be excited about. With various elements from both the Mirage Comics series and the 80's cartoon I was a big fan of, it is a great combination. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Complete Classic Series Collection I also love how the Nicktoon introduced Donatello's crush on April.
For some odd reason, Walmart released the DVD the week before Amazon did, so I'm watching the DVD right now! The key thing to know about this DVD release features an `uncut' version of the hour-long pilot episode `Rise of the Turtles' (let's see a Season Box Set do that!), along with five additional episodes from the first season. Before the DVD's release, I only saw two of the episodes that are featured on it "New Friend, Old Enemy" and " I Think His Name Is Baxter Stockman", all the others I saw were later episodes. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Trailer If you chose to wait for a Season set, you might get the pilot in two half-episodes, but this DVD release has it `uncut'. So, it might be worth it, it depends on your own opinions.

Can't wait for the entirety of Season One!Feb 26, 2013
By Kim Jackson
I was born in 1981, which means that I grew up on the original TMNT series. I had--okay, I still have--a collection of TMNT memorabilia, all of the movies, all kinds of stuff. I've seen these characters through countless rebirths, whether it was one of the many cartoon series, the comics from Mirage, Archie, or Image. Whenever there's a remake, the fans of the original will be hesitant to buy into the new version. I was especially doubtful when it came to the casting of the voice talent.
I'm a big fan of Greg Cipes, and of course Rob Paulsen played our beloved Raphael in the original series. However, I think that the current cast could not possibly be any better. I loved the original cast, of course, but something about this current cast feels more close to the comics. I also think that Rob's voice fits better with Donatello.
This series, while indulging in small amounts of silliness, plays them out as characters instead of caricatures. Each one has his or her light and dark sides. I also enjoy seeing April getting to learn to be a ninja like she did in the comics instead of a helpless reporter. It's also nice to see her as a teenager in this series. It just adds a new dynamic to the story.
It also doesn't hurt that there are a lot of little references to the old series, to the comics, and subtle shout-outs to the fans of the classic versions. I think that if you approach this new series with an open mind and a love of all things TMNT, you will fall in love just as I have.
Besides, fans of TMNT should be excited about introducing a whole new generation to the characters we know and love.

Fourth Time Was The CharmDec 03, 2013
I never read the original (1984) Eastman & Laird's comics. I was in my late twenty's with the first (1987) series. My kids were just tots and we never watched it. Skipping quickly over "The Next Mutation" was the (2003) animated series. I couldn't get into it. But I have to say that I absolutely love this new (2012) Nickelodeon version.
I think sometimes the older you get the harder it is to find something to laugh about. Often, it is something simple that sneaks up on you unexpectedly to provide the invaluable chuckle. I do not remember why I started watching this show, but I have from the beginning, and it never lets me down with its humor. It actually made me go back to catch a couple of these previously mentioned versions and they still do nothing for me.
I enjoy the shows music with the opening theme being very up tempo and creative. The visuals are great, particularly when they are out at night running the roof tops. Excellent work in capturing the lights and darkness of the alleys, the buildings, and the night time sky. And the way they run, head down arms backwards, is hysterical.
The camaraderie between Mikey, Leo, Pizza, Donnie, Raph and unofficial 5th turtle (she wears the number five.) April O'Neil is excellent. Sensei Splinter is (Yes!...No!, Yes!...No!) very funny. Now comes Casey Jones into the mix. And this is not to forget Master Shredder, Karai and the foot clan. Also the Kraang, and their unique way of talking, (Very Funny! - Try it out it really irritates people!) And the featured toy...um, villain of each week. The show is just excellent.
And, as a constant pleasant shelf reminder there is always the unavoidable merchandise. Playmates Toys is no doubt euphoric. I also wonder if Paramount realizes, I am sure they do but don't care, that I get sick of having to buy 3-4 DVD's to get one full season. Ka-ching! I was very happy to see that it has been renewed for a third season
PS - I enjoy the newest TMNT incarnation so much that I started a collection as a visual reminder of the laughs it provides. You can find all these reviews in my profile page.
