I have to admit growing up I was quite the tomboy. I guess I can say I still kind of am. I watched a variety of cartoons and shows growing up and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was one of them.
Now I am a mom to 3 little ones and they are just learning about these cool dudes!! I have a son who is 8, and two daughters ages 6 and 20 months old. We recently received a copy of Ninja Turtles The Next Mutation Volume One in the mail to review. They said they had heard of them but never watched them on tv. You can probably just imagine my excitement to share this dvd with them. I told them all about them and that made them want to watch it even more.
The 2 disc dvd contains the first 13 episodes and this is the first time they have offered this. Of course, I had to sit in and watch a few with them..LOL
Brought back memories such as: Cowabunga, Dude!! That saying made it big back in the day.
The 2 disc dvd set contained these 13 episodes:
* East Meets West, Part 1
* East Meets West, Part 2
* East Meets West, Part 3
* East Meets West, Part 4
* East Meets West, Part 5
* Staff of Buki
* Silver and Gold
* Meet Dr. Quease
* All in the Family
* Trusting Dr. Quease
* Turtles' Night Out
* Mutant Reflections
I remembered Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo just like it was yesterday and my kids loved them too. They thought they were so cool. They couldn't believe that Master Splinter ( a rat) was the one who trained them. They thought that was kind of funny. My son asked why I never told them about the turtles before and quite honestly I had forgotten all about them. Like I said I was a kid back in the day when I watched them and haven't heard of them. I am so glad that they decide to bring some of the older shows back so we have an opportunity to share them with our children too.
