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.

From one Turtle Fan to AnotherMar 07, 2013
By Robert Bonfield
As a long time fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I highly enjoy the new series so far. I picked up the dvd from amazon a few days ago and everything works great. The dvd itself does have some extras although nothing that I really care for. Would have really liked seeing an interview by the creators, actors, or producers of the new show. This dvd has the first 6 episodes of Nickelodeon's new Turtles series. Like other long time fans, I did come into this new show with some fears over certain details like; the different animation style, Don and Mikey's new bladed weapons, and turning April into a teenager. The changes I pretty much got used to by the end of the first episode.
Now, I don't know why some fans have a difficult time buying this just because it isn't the full season. One thing, the price tag is VERY cheap. Including shipping it's just over $10. If the releases continue like this, we'll get the full season in 4 dvds. That's only around $40. If you look around at full season box sets for other shows, you'll see similar and at times even more expensive price tags. Besides, $40 for 26 episodes of a series like this is well worth the money.
Anyway, if you've been a fan of other Turtle incarnations like the Mirage, Archie, and IDW comics, or the 1987 and/or 2003 series, or the movies, you may or may not enjoy this series. I happen to really like all of the cartoon series', the movies, and what I've read from Mirage and Archie. At the very least, I highly recommend you give this series a try for several episodes at least. This series is a great new edition to the Turtle franchise. Until next time...Cowabunga/Booyakasha!
