What's better than watching our four heroes on the halfshell? Watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in four separate movies.
I watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Turtles In Time (all three shot as live action films) with friends in the theater, but didn't see the animated TMNT until it aired on premium cable.While the latter was fun, it was not as hilarious and entertaining as the first three movies.
Led by Master Splinter, the ancient and wise rat, the four turtles whom he names Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael grow up and learn the ancient art of Ninjitsu. But there is an evil archenemy named Shredder and he is bent on world domination. Naturally our four heroes on the halfshell are guided by Splinter and they must stop Shredder and the Foot Clan, his black clad henchmen.
Unbeknownst to Shredder, Professor Perry tampers with the Ooze so that the monsters he is forced to create have the minds of infants. With his direct help, the Turtles must find a way to stop Shredder's forces.
To accomplish this task they must battle the evil Lord Norinaga and Walker, his greedy English ally to reclaim the magic scepter that will return them to New York City.
In the meantime wealthy industrialist tycoon Max Winters has revived four ancient stone warriors and enlisted the help of the Foot Clan to help capture the 13 ancient monsters needed to make him a mortal once again. Naturally the Turtles must reunite and incredibly enough, team up with the Foot Clan to defeat these stone warriors in order to save the world.

While the special features in the 25th Anniversary Collector's Edition of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Blu-ray are not all up to the caliber of the films themselves, having all 4 films and all the great special collectibles in a reasonable facsimile of a small Chicago deep dish pizza box really rocks.
