I grew up when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles first came out so you can imagine my excitement when this DVD came in the mail. It also arrived while we were in the midst of our flu epidemic, so there were many days spent cuddled on the couch watching the turtles. I’m a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle purist, but I did love the new CGI-animated series and so are my kids.
