Slightly over 30 years ago, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird created a cynical satire of the popular comics at the time which they gave the laughably absurd title of: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Comic readers ate it up and its immediate success as an indie comic brought forth opportunities to merchandise and bring the turtles to television and theaters. The franchise is no stranger to being milked for every dime it can shell-out so I am not the least bit surprised Paramount and Nickelodeon thought they could make lightning strike again.
Paramount Home Entertainment dives a little deeper into the second season of the CG-animated hit series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with this new Casey Jones-titled entry.
Paramount Home Entertainment brings us the latest adventures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with the first DVD collection from the show’s second season: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutagen Mayhem, featuring six episodes of the awesome CG-fueled animated series. The caliber remains high from start to finish, with the show continuing it’s blistering, frenetic, and sometimes insanely wacky adventures from the first season.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles easily remains one of the most enjoyable cartoons on television today, and this DVD release is another testament to its strong quality.
The first season of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes to a close in this new two-disc DVD collection from Paramount Home Entertainment, and thankfully, the quality rarely wavers in the final twelve episodes included here. The show continues to reign as arguably one of the best animated shows on television today.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back in this second DVD release collecting seven episodes from the new Nickelodeon CG-animated series and, rest assured, the quality remains on par with the first release.
The new (and really, really excellent) CG-animated Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles series is now out on DVD, with the first six episodes collected on one disc.
To briefly comment on the show – it’s fun. It really is. In fact, when the vast majority of people think of the Ninja Turtles, this show is what pops to mind. The 1980s/90s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series remains a pretty beloved series, despite it’s questionable quality.
Well, if you picked up the first volume of Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation, expect more of the same here in this second – and final – collection of episodes from the short-lived 1990s live-action series.
To boil it down, the new CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon is just a ridiculously fun blast. From start to finish, it was packed with great visuals, a solid story, and excellent character work. Without question, Nickelodeon will definitely have another hit on their hands.
To start things off, there’s a good chance you’ll be disappointed in Ninja Turtles: Next Mutation. In no way is it on the level of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theatrical films, or even their animated television fare. Not even close.
And with this, the adventures of the The Super Hero Squad Show come to an end! The final episodes from the acclaimed all-ages animated series bring everything to a head in a surprisingly tense series finale. Yes, the campy jokes and hijinks are still in abundance, but the stakes actually seem palpable in these final episodes.
Transformers Prime is probably the best CGI animated television series I’ve seen thus far. Every episode provides top-notch animation added with great characters, voice actors and music. Since premiering on The Hub in November 2010, it has become one of my favorite shows on the network – and TV in general.
It’s funny. Wolverine gets so much right about the title characters – his background, attitude, overall gruff demeanor – but saddles him with a bizarre character design and a questionable voice actor in Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes). That being said, I did enjoy this series even if it drags itself out quite considerably at times.
Wandering the world, fighting vampires and struggling to resist the thirst, Blade Anime brings the cult Marvel back to the animated screen and – easily – this ranks as probably the best of the Marvel Anime titles.
My interest in Marvel Anime was piqued – the line even included big names like Iron Man, X-Men, Wolverine and Blade – even with the weak reviews that were rolling in. I thought perhaps it would serve as a nice gate-way drug to bigger, better titles. And, you know what? I actually enjoyed Iron Man Anime, and I wouldn’t mind digging deeper into the world of anime after all of this.
When Marvel Animation announced they’d be creating a selection of anime shows based on some of their big properties – X-Men, Iron Man, Blade and Wolverine – I was actually pretty intrigued. It sounded like an opportunity for Marvel to do something really different in the field of animation and, for the most part, I think they were pretty successful. Not every idea worked mind you, but the end result is interesting, though not always enjoyable.
The Squaddies are back for a second season of hilarious hi-jinks, goofy stories, and light-hearted action. If you have been enjoying the adventures of The Super Hero Squad so far, then you are in for more of the same all-ages comedy and action.
After the rousing success of The Fairy OddParents, it was a no-brainer for Nickelodeon to ask creator Butch Hartman if he had another miracle in his bag of tricks. Instead of following under FOP’s shoes, Hartman took his love of superheroes and applied it to his next big thing.
The Hub’s flagship action series first season is finally available in its entirety. The single disc taste from Shout! Factory was only the appetizer for Transformers fans compared to the veritable feast they rolled out for the complete first season release.
In 1989, Hasbro and D.I.C. Entertainment produced a follow-up series to the iconic G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero animated series helmed by Sunbow Productions. Shout! Factory has finally begun releasing this series across a few DVD sets for the hardcore Joes fans aiming to complete their collections.
