Ninja Turtles The Next Mutation Volume One


Not long after the live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies premiered the live-action TMNT Saturday morning TV show hit the airwaves.

Added to the mix of the four original Turtles was a new cast member: a female Turtle called Venus De Milo.

Along with the new cast member the Turtles faced off against a new and powerful enemy who was even more evil than Shredder!  Dragon Skull was clever, nefarious and diabolical and that was his good qualities!

Join Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, Venus De Milo and Master Splinter as they fight crime in the back alleys and dark corners of New York City.

Taking clues from the movie’s  live- action versions of the characters the TV series improved upon and slightly modified the look of the TMNTs thus providing the actors wearing the outfits greater flexibility and the off-camera puppeteers more subtle control of the TMNTs facial expressions and head mobility.

The new DVD set from Shout! Factory includes the first 113 episodes in stunning live-action, full-color turtle excitement.  Cowabunga Dudes!
