Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Classic) Vol. 6 â?? Review

Family Home Entertainment has finally released the sixth volume of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, which unfortunately, doesnâ??t contain as many classic and memorable episodes as their last offering. This volume features the fourth and final part of season 3, as well as the first episode of season 4. Season 3 was one of the TMNTâ??s stronger seasons, and according to many fans, supposedly the last good season (though, the show did spike back upward in quality for seasons 7 through 10). While this set does not contain as many gems as Vol. 5, it does have a number of quality episodes, with the three-part season finale being the real highpoint.

The set starts out rather poorly with â??the Turtle Terminatorâ?, an episode spotlighting Irma, one of my least favorite supporting characters. Shredder builds a robot duplicate of her to destroy the Turtles. Itâ??s pretty awful. â??The Great Boldiniâ? isnâ??t a fantastic episode, but it *does* feature the Rat King, so it canâ??t be all that bad. A magician, secretly working for the mob boss Don Turtelli, steals a massive emerald from a museum. Zach, â??the 5th Turtleâ?, and his not-girlfriend, Caitlin, accompany the Turtles to the museum and try to get the gem back. The Rat King shows up at complete random toward the end. The episode wouldnâ??t have been so bad if it hadnâ??t been for the â??fearsomeâ? mobster using tickling as his M.O. â??The Missing Mapâ? is yet another Zach-centric episode. This time around, he brings his brother Walt to visit the Turtles (and Walt steals a map that leads to the Shredder). I mean, seriously, how many people is this kid going to blow the location of the Turtlesâ?? lair to? This is why kid sidekicks are never a good idea.
