Nickelodeon’s all-new, CGI-animated hit series debuts on DVD with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rise of the Turtles.  Join these four ninja brothers – Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo – in this action-packed adventure as they emerge from their hidden lair in the sewers of New York City for the very first time.  In addition, enjoy six awesome “making of animatics” and a karaoke music video to the show’s tubular theme song. And as an added bonus, each DVD will include an exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster for a limited time only.

The series stars Jason Biggs (American Pie) as “Leonardo,” Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings) as “Raphael,” Rob Paulsen (Planet Sheen) as “Donatello” and Greg Cipes (Teen Titans) as “Michelangelo.” Additional cast members rounding out this iconic hit franchise include Mae Whitman (Parenthood) as “April O’Neil,” Hoon Lee (Royal Pains) as “Master Splinter” and Kevin Michael Richardson (Penguins of Madagascar) as “Shredder.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rise of the Turtles Episode Synopses:

Rise of the Turtles (Double-Length Episode)
Four sewer-dwelling turtles go above ground for the first time and rescue a teenage girl, April O’Neil, and her father from a near abduction. Before long, they’re caught up in a complicated conspiracy.

Turtle Temper
When a video surfaces showing the Turtles topside, Master Splinter worries that their secrecy will be compromised. Meanwhile, Raphael struggles to keep his anger problems in check.

New Friend, Old Enemy
Michelangelo accidentally befriends Chris Bradford via social media, a henchman who’s secretly working for Shredder!

I Think His Name Is Baxter Stockman
When the Turtles sneak out against Splinter’s wishes to spend time with April, they battle Baxter Stockman, a deranged inventor in mechanical battle armor.

Donatello invents a remote-controlled robot to stand in for him during a battle with Kraang.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rise of the Turtles is certainly not the old school Ninja Turtles that most of us remember.  Yes, the basic premise is the same, but this new generation of turtles have been created with a much higher level of animation.  Technology has come a long way since the 1987 TV series first debuted.  Those who prefer the traditional show may not be a fan of this CGI enhanced version.  But obviously, today’s TV shows need to be modern and my boys love all forms of the turtles.  Little boys today will love this modern show, because defending good and fighting bad guys is always a winning plot line:)
