Growing up I remember watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you see my cousin was a fan from the very beginning influencing me enough to know who they were and what the show was about. Her favorite of course was and still is Donatello. I remember she had a life size plush Donatello she used as a pillow and would travel everywhere with it. She still is a big fan of the TMNT and is teaching all about them to her toddler daughter.
This past March 4th Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation -East Meets West became available on DVD. It features the first 7 episodes of the series which is live action based. Imagine the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise but instead of animation you have real people!
Now what is this DVD about?
Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo were 4 turtles that were genetically mutated and grew to human size ninja powered crime fighters living in the sewers of New York City. They had a ninja master called Splinter and fought their nemesis Shredder. In this DVD new characters are introduced, such as Dragon Lord and a brand new ninja turtle that happens to be female: Venus de Milo.
We watched the DVD and enjoyed reminiscing about our childhood and of course teaching our kids all about COWABUNGA!
