Don’t worry about the title, the DVD that Shout! Factory will release on September 4, 2012 has nothing to do with the Michael Bay reboot. Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation still has earth turtles mutated by a radioactive ooze, where they were found on the floor and raised by a giant talking rat.
Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation is the live-action adventure series about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that we know and love, which debuted back in 1997. The series follows Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo as they meet a foe that is more evil, and more dangerous than Shredder – the fearsome Dragon Skull. They’re not going to do it alone, as a fifth ninja turtle, named Venus De Milo, will appear to lend HER help.
The Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation Vol. 1 DVD set consists of 2 DVDs containing the first 13 episodes of the live action series. The set will retail for the SRP of $19.93 and is now available for preorder at Amazon.com
