I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but you probably know that the first 2 seasons of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the original 1987 series) are on DVD!!!! (I've got both seasons already.)
And now, the first half of the 3rd. season is set to release soon. (the DVD set has 12 episodes.)
Look for it on December 6th.!!! Very Happy

Here's the front and back cover art.

Man, I've been watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1980s cartoon, of course! Wink ) on DVD lately... I LOVE this show!
It's so much fun!

And I'm quite excited about Season 5 coming to DVD probably on August 7, which is also when the TMNT movie is getting released to DVD. (Which was a great movie by the way!)
Check out the cool cover art- the marketing department did a great job on this! Very Happy Cool

They have up to Season 6 of the old TMNT on DVD now. Keep buying 'em, folks (they're cheap, so you have no excuse)! We want the remaining 4 seasons!

Looks like Season 7 of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the original and as far as I'm concerned, pretty much the best series! - but I've seen all of them and like them fine Wink )
is coming to DVD on April 21st of 2009! Hopefully, this set might finally contain the 2 episodes that were left off from previous seasons- "Once Upon a Time Machine" and "Planet of the Turtleoids".

Turtle Power!!! WOW! Check this out!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles- The Seventh Season will be released on DVD on May 19th. In celebration of TMNT's 25th. anniversary, there will be 4 volumes of Season 7, each coming with a really cool Turtles toy! We get an action figure for all 4 of the guys- Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael!
Not to mention some really cool interviews with the creators of the show, a look back at the awesome toy line, we get to hear from the diehard fans and we get an interview with the creators of the Ninja Turtles themselves- Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman.
Take a look at the cover art here- http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles-Season-7/11277
Cowabunga! Very Happy Cool

I really wish they'd start releasing this over here in region 2 (Ireland in particular considering it was animated here!)

Anywho while I would agree that I'd rather a complete season box set getting the toys is pretty cool even if they are only mini ones.

Edit: Have to start proofreading before posting!

Woohoo! Region 2 is finally getting a release - wel a couple of releases.

We're getting 2 releases in May thanks to the 25th anniversary. Looks like a 1 disc and a 3 disc release. No detaills out regarding episodes but I have a feeling they'll both be best ofs with the 1 disc one probably being the first disc of the 3 disc one.

I can't wait for this Smile

Cool! But is it going to still be the "Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles" or actually come out and call them, as their creators did Wink , Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Cool

Just checked and they're down as Ninja.

To be honest I'm a bit disappointed. I watched it for years and the song has become ingrained in my mind with hero in it and it always sounds odd when I listen to it on youtube or something and they say ninja.

Oh well I'll get over it!

Ma-ha! I just read on wiki why it was called Hero instead of Ninja. Wow! I thought we were bad with censorship. No nunchaku for Mikey? And yet Leo's katanas were okay? and so were Raph sai? Really? Ma-ha!

I believe it had something to do with some nut case who attacked someone with nunchucks (can't remember any more detail then that I'm afraid) and once the british government decided to have it censor the rest of R2 got effected.

Well, even on the American version of the cartoon, you can notice that somewhere after the first 2 seasons or so, Michealangelo pretty much drops his nunchuks altogether and starts swinging his grappling hook rope as his weapon. Yep- censorship was weird and seemingly inconsistent sometimes- well, it still is really.
(I mean- in the 1960s, we were able to have The Human Torch on TV with The Fantastic Four cartoon, but in the 1970s he had to be replaced with H.E.R.B.I.E. the Robot! [who is in fact part of actual Marvel continuity, by the way! LOL]) Oh well- whatever.
At least the cartoons are getting released. I'd still take those 3 shows there over most everything on TV today. Smile

Hmm - that might have been the brits fault. They may have decided that taking the nun chucks out was worth saving the R2 market but that's just a thought.

I thought Human Torch was taken replaced because his rights were tied up in another project rather then for censorship reasons
