It’s party time, dudes! It’s been 25 awesome years (whoa!) since four turtles fell into the sewers and were transformed into radical heroes- in-a-half-shell. Join the shellabration as the heroic Turtles save the Eiffel Tower, stop a glacier meltdown, ride a wild tidal wave and much, much more in six outrageously exciting adventures!

THE SHOW

The seventh season of this series aired in the second half of 1993. It is notable for a number of reasons, the most obvious being that it marked the end of an era in terms of the overall tone and look of the show. Starting with the show's eighth season, which aired the following year, nearly all the hallmarks of the show - all the touchstones that made the series what it was - would be gone. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let us break down the seventh season of the show.

The first 13 episodes of the seventh season are what fans have dubbed the "European Vacation" shows. These episodes have always been a bit of a mystery among fans, if only because, in some aspects of the story, they seem to be out of place in the seventh season. During the first episode of the fourth season, the Turtles find out that they have won a vacation to Europe. So, it would stand to reason that the first leg of season four would be the Turtles' adventures traveling across Europe. This they do; some of the storylines take place in France, Greece, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, and Turkey. Along the way, familiar characters (Shredder and Krang), and some not so familiar (Erik the Red Eye, a modern-day Viking), attempt various nefarious schemes at taking over the world. Many theories abound as to why this fourth season storyline did not see the light of day until the beginning of the seventh season (animation and/or scheduling problems being the most popular), but at least fans can rest easy that all of the "European Vacation" episodes have finally made it to DVD.

That being said, however, the end of the "European Vacation" episodes and the "beginning" of the seventh season can be a bit jarring when viewing the shows in succession.

For the 25th Anniversary of TMNT, LionsGate released Season 7 in four part DVDs.

Season 7 Part 1 Episodes are:

Tower of Power
Rust Never Sleeps
A Real Snow Job
Venice on the Half Shell
Artless
The Lost Queen of Atlantis

These episodes are part of the side-season when the turtles went to Europe. The special feature is A Shellabration With Points of Articulation: A Look Back at the Most Turtleastic Toys.

I only bought the season in four parts so I could get the the miniature TMNT toys. I recommend others to buy the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Complete Season 7 Set.

Well, well, Season 7 sure is an interesting release in the ongoing re-release of the original TMNT series. Split into four 'slices' (one for each turtle), it's an interesting tribute to the 25th anniversary of our shell-back heroes. What isn't as clear is the content of at least the first two slices - the possibly undeservedly fabled "Vacation in Europe" episodes, which were supposed to take place between seasons 3 and 4 (as Raphael won a European tour at the end of the third season). But instead these episodes have been cast as the beginning of the 7th season. This may or may not be considered a good thing.

In any case, you will find six episodes on this set - and the price is rather steep for such little content (you can buy the entire Season 8 set for the same amount as each of these slices, at least at the time that I write this review). Now, if you were to go on a holiday in Europe, which city immediately comes to mind? Yep, the turtles too and so the first episode is set in Paris. Of course, the Turtles are the Turtles and so they have the mixed blessing of travelling via the sewers of most cities, which Splinter reminds them are full of history. Interestingly, the first episode sees the Turtles go to Paris in a far less luxurious manner than we expected - apparently, the won vacation at the end of season 3 has been forgotten. Even more interestingly is how almost everywhere the Turtles go, the Turtles run into Shredder, Rocksteady and Bebop as well as April and Irma. I mean, I know it can be a small world but this is ridiculous.

Vacation in Europe was essentially a TMNT side-project, meaning that it was produced semi-independently from the main series. This puzzles me as to why Lionsgate and Fred Wolf Films didn't just release Vacation in Europe as a separate set.

the best show ever...I always liked the teenage mutant ninja turtles...season 7 is where shredder an krang last have the technodrome, until it gets sucked into deminsion x with em, an baxter the fly comes back, mutates everyone into insects, etc...an at end of the episode he comes really close into turning him self back into a human being again but instead gets trapped in the technodrome portal...which thats the end of stockman.

Night of the dark turtle, is a good episode too where donatello goes insane..an they randomly have scum bug, an antrax appear in the episdoe of night roges or whatever.

season 7 is the second the last regular season of ninja turtles, but as soon as season 9 comes, theres no more shredder...an DREGG replace him at 9 an 10.

Shredder an Krang does come back at middle of season 10...only for 3 episdoes.
