Editorial Reviews

In 2003, 4Kids and Mirage Studios joined forces to bring those heroes on the half-shell back to TV...but this time, they mean business.

This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series was inspired by the original, darker and edgier comics that made their debut in 1984. With significant input from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, co-creator Peter Laird, the episodes are based on those early storylines and a graphic visual style comic fans love.

Watch as the Turtles evolve from four talented but inexperienced martial arts "brawlers" into a well-honed fighting unit taught by their sensei Master Splinter. Join them as they take on they take on their arch nemesis, the Shredder. Be there as each saga unfolds and our heroes learn that teamwork is one of their most powerful assets.

Contains 12 episodes on 2 discs!

4.0 out of 5 stars They finally came to their senses! March 24, 2007
Verified Purchase
I saw the original series back in the 80s, and like everyone did back then--loved it. I watched the cartoons regularly, and each movie as it came out. The franchise had a good run, but I didn't expect to see it come back. Much to my surprise, in 2003 a brand new cartoon appeared--and the turtles were more serious, the Shredder was actually intimidating, rather than the bumbling villain from the 80s--it didn't take long before I was sucked in. But the DVD releases were lackluster. When everyone else was releasing season sets for $40-$50, you could only buy TMNT episodes 3 to a disc at $15! So I held off on buying them, hoping the company would come to their senses. And now that I was just getting to the point of thinking I would have to go hunt down all the older 3-episode DVDs, they finally wised up! I feel bad for those who already bought the older DVDs, but I'm very glad they are finally being released in this format. It's better for collectors, and more friendly to those who might not have wanted to pay so much for the single discs (like me).

The 2003 cartoon has had great art/animation, and a more serious, exciting tone that has made it alot of fun to watch. If you were a fan of the old show but have never seen this, give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Since no one else has posted it, here's a list of the episodes that should be on this disc (from an online episode guide-may vary a little):

1- 1 Things Change

1- 2 A Better Mousetrap (1)

1- 3 Attack of the Mousers (2)

1- 4 Meet Casey Jones

1- 5 Nano

1- 6 Darkness on the Edge of Town

1- 7 The Way of Invisibility

1- 8 Fallen Angel

1- 9 Garbageman

1-10 The Shredder Strikes (1)

1-11 The Shredder Strikes (2)

1-12 The Unconvincing Turtle Titan

Overall this should be a great set of solid episodes. I'm definitely pre-ordering this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series February 28, 2007
This series is, by far, the best thing that has been done with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles since the original comic book. It easily surpasses the original cartoon and the first three movies in terms of visuals, action, characterization, plot and continuity. Everyone who's ever loved the turtles should own this series. That said, there are probably a good many people who already do, as this has been released before. However, the previous releases for these twelve episodes were three episodes to a DVD for more per DVD than the cost of this set. Not exactly ideal. This set is good for anyone who is just getting into the series and doesn't want to spend very much or for the DVD addict who is running out of room on their shelves. And it's a good way to send a message to the people in charge of such things that customers are still interested in season sets for this cartoon. After all, if they don't see any interest in what came before, they're hardly likely to release anything new.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! March 19, 2007
I at one time collected the volumes, but when the episodes became out of order, I stopped.

This is for anyone who doesn't want 6-8 volumes per season. This is something Funimation and 4kids should have been doing Since day one. This is an obvious beginning showing they are releasing all 4 seasons in 2 volumes sets with 2 discs in each volume. By the time they get to Season 4, it is my hope they will have Season 5 (dubbed "The Lost Season" in many respects) Ready to release as a final addition to this collection.

This series outstands the original 1989 series for various reasons. delving back into the original black and white mirage comics for reference, This series expands in plot, character development and consistency where the 10-year running series merely entertained the idea the turtles were Ninja and barely gave it true form or reference.

While I collect and admire the old series for its longevity and childhood memories, TMNT2003 is one series I watch over and over again.

If you have been Reluctant to collect this series thus far because of the amount of volumes and the price each volume costs, I recommend to buy this and start the Turtles story all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars TMNT Generation 2 August 23, 2012
After several DVDS were released featuring only four episodes,4Kids.TV finally released the first season in two parts.

The episodes in Season 1 part 1 are:

Disc 1:

Things Change
A Better Mousetrap
Attack of the Mousers
Meet Casey Jones
Darkness on the Edge of Town

Disc 2:

The Way of Invisibility
Fallen Angel
The Shredder Strikes - Part 1
The Shredder Strikes - Part 2
The Unconvincing Turtle Titan

I accidentally bought this DVD thinking it was the 80s turtles, as I wasn't even aware of the 2003 cartoon at the time. I think I paid under ten dollars for it in 2007. Yes, I understand why some old fans don't like the new series, but after awhile it grew on me.

5.0 out of 5 stars No More "Cowabunga" Mikey! July 12, 2007
This is amazing, how far things have come. The very first dvd of this show only included 3 episodes. Now six fit on one disc!

This show won me back to comics in general and TMNT in particular. From the first episode I saw (which is NOT on this disc, btw) I was hooked, and as soon as I could watch all of the past episodes I did-- and was more and more amazed! It has the feel of the comics (even adapting some of the old comics stories as well), plus a feel that is more "grown up" than the fun-loving toon of the 80s/90s. All of the voice actors are fantastic, especially- forgive my spelling-- Michael Sinternnclaus as Leo, Sam Regal as Don, John Campbell as Raph, Wayne Grayson as Mikey, and Darren Dunstan as Splinter-- and they play off of each other smoothly. The family bond is really apparent in all of the episodes, and as I look at my other DVDs from the following seasons, I can see growth and development in the characters. The action sequences in some of the episodes is awesome! The fight with Shredder in "The Shredder Strikes" parts one and two are wicked (and only surpassed in "The Shredder Strikes Back" parts one and two, not on this disc), the humor is not over the top, and you get the feel that these could be real characters-- indeed, a real family.

Like Nano in the one episode, and Leatherhead in later ones, that is the most important thing: Family. And I'm glad that this family has come into my life.
