Season Four of TMNT on DVD

"On September 8, 1990, the show began its first run on CBS. This was the fourth season of the wildly popular "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" animated cartoon. The first three seasons had been (and continued to be) shown in syndication on the USA network, and also (for a short while, anyway) on the FOX network. When the cartoon began airing on CBS, it aired two episodes back-to-back, with "Turtle Tips" in between, animated shorts advising viewers young and old on environmental issues, such as not running too much water or wasting too much electricity.
Season Four of the series took the show to new heights, as new characters were introduced, familiar characters were given increased depth, and our Heroes in a Halfshell continued to sky-rocket in popularity. From 1989-1992, the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" was one of the hottest cartoons on the planet, airing on Saturday mornings after a full hour of "Garfield and Friends," another terrific cartoon based on the comics of Jim Davis.
For me personally, Seasons Three and Four of this wonderful cartoon are my favorite. For them to finally -- FINALLY! -- be released on DVD has been a long time coming. And I could not be more thrilled that Season Four in its entirety is going to be released in one fell swoop, instead of being churned out disk by disk every spring and fall. Any seasons released after this, in my opinion, will just be icing on the cake. All I've wanted since the invention of DVD was to have Seasons Three and Four make it to this format, and it FINALLY HAPPENED!
I don't know if the "Turtle Tips" will ever see the light of day as far as bonus features go. There were only about ten of them, if I remember correctly, and they just kept getting recycled through all the seasons that aired on CBS.
I know a lot of people like the darker, grittier versions of the Turtles, but I much prefer the goofier, kid-friendly versions that this cartoon consists of. Season Four, especially, really emphasizes this fact, as some of the funniest episodes in the series are included. All of the principle characters have their moments to shine comedically, but Shredder and Krang, in particular, have some really funny moments all throughout this season, something that was sorely lacking when the show changed tone dramatically in its waning years.
March 13, 2007, cannot get here fast enough. I can't wait to see all my old friends again: Donatello, Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Raphael, and Splinter. I'm even anxious to see Shredder bicker with his live-in wife, alien warlord Krang, and his two bumbling mutants, Bebop and Rocksteady."

"Just waht you would expect from the turtles. All of season 4, to go with the first 3 seasons(volumes 1-6)"
Best episodes of the best 80's cartoon series.

"Season 4 has the best episodes of the series. The last batch of syndicated episodes were the best and the first batch of saturday morning episodes. This boxset has both. Watching the special features was enjoyable too, especially Pat Fraley, the voice of Krang. I got a laugh out of how he came up with Krangs voice. Looking forward to Season 5."
