Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Final Episodes
review by Bobby Blakey
I have loved the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series from the moment it debuted in 2012 and has gotten better with every episode. Sadly the series is coming to an end and fans will have the chance to bring home the last of the series episodes with Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Final Episodes.
In this final collection of episodes, the half-shelled heroes must band together once and for all in order to be the heroes they were destined to be. Whether they are battling mutants in another dimension, teaming up with a rabbit samurai to defeat an evil sorcerer or clashing with classic movie monsters to protect New York City, the Turtles will have to use all of their ninja-knowledge to defeat their enemies! I am so bummed that this series is coming to an end, but have to say they are going out with a bang in these final episodes. Finally the famed samurai rabbit Usagi Yojimbo is returning to the TMNT universe and he is as awesome as ever. In addition they offer up some famed monsters into the mix and wrap it up with a great 90 minute special showcasing a future Ralph doing what he does best which is kicking butt.
The animation continues to be awesome and offers up some great character designs and epic feel to the overall series. It has been amazing to see these characters grow throughout the series. This would have made the show cool enough but the change in location to make their world so much bigger took the show in great directions making it easily the best adaptation of the characters to date. These final episodes wrap up the series in epic fashion and do not disappoint. I will be sad to see it go, but glad we have collections like this to revisit anytime we want.
Grab your copy of Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Final Episodes when it hits DVD on December 12th from Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment.
