Season 7 (1993)
This season chronologically begins at where Episode 142 left off.Read more ›
This DVD set contains, to my understanding, 18 episodes of the fifth season of this series. However, for reasons that I don't understand, two episodes from the end of that season, a two-parter that aired in primetime -- "Planet of the Turtleoids" -- has not been included in this set. I am assuming that these episodes will be released in a later set (presumably the sixth season), but to not include them here is a shame. Why Lion's Gate would skimp out on these two episodes remains to be seen.
However, that minor quibble aside, there are some other assorted goodies to feed the senses. Continuing in the tradition that was set with the previous release, there are three bonus features included in this set:
"Heroes in a Half Shell" featurette on the Ninja Turtles phenomenon
"Inside the Turtle Shell" character portrait of Donatello
"Inside the Turtle Shell" character portrait of the Evil Splinter
On a sidenote, it will be interesting to see if the voice actor behind Donatello makes any references to the other voice actor who sometimes portrayed Donatello in the third season. I, in particular, have always been intrigued by this; to my memory, only Donatello and Raphael of the Fearsome Foursome ever had different voice actors at certain times in the series. Donatello and Raphael had notable voice changes in some episodes of the third season (in "The Turtle Terminator," both their voices are different...in the SAME EPISODE!), and a brand new voice actor gave voice to Raphael in the show's final season.Read more ›
However, the 1-hour special "Planet of the Turtleoids", the two final episodes of the season, have for some inexplicable reason been left out. It's not as though they couldn't have fit them into the ensemble. They still haven't been released even with seasons six, seven and eight out, and this is absolutely inexcusable of Lionsgate. "Plane of the Turtleoids" is a vital piece of the puzzle that effects storylines later on in the series - not to mention is it awesomely cool. Is it because it broke the 20-minute time lap for each episode? Such petty details shouldn't deter such a respectable supplier.
One star is detracted for the rather low quality of episodes on this set. Two stars are detracted for leaving out Season 5's magnum opus. Lionsgate, Fred Wolf Films, see to it that "Planet of the Turtleoids" is released this instant. In the meantime, this is a decent set with a creative packaging (like a pizza box), but surely it had space for the specials? Of course it did!
