You probably already have the song stuck in your head after reading the title don’t you! It’s hard to forget a theme song to one of the most popular kid shows from the late 80s early 90s. Who could forget Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo!
If you thought Shredder was bad, wait until you meet the newest TMNT foe – Dragon Lord! It will take all the power of the turtles to combat this new villain… lucky for them, they will have help from a new ninja turtle, a FEMALE turtle named Venus De Milo!
Ninja Turtles The Next Mutation brings in a new character to the TMNT family, Venus De Milo, the female ninja turtle! It gets really interesting after that. After all, they thought they were the only ones for a really long time.
Venus De Milo isn’t a brand new character to the series, she was actually introduced in the 90s but wasn’t wildly accepted by fans. This has been changing in recent years and I’m sure it has a lot to do with the essence of ‘girl power’ or to have TMNT stick to it’s original characters and although she wasn’t there in the very beginning, she did become a major player early on. I must admit, I actually had the Venus De Milo action figure at one point.
Ninja Turtles The Next Mutation is really a cultural phenomenon. Extreme fans of TMNT have been arguing for almost two decades about where it fits in ninja turtle history. It only aired for one season in the early 90s and yet it became one of the most popular to love or hate. Needless to say, whether you wound up liking it or disliking it at the time, it is still a great piece of history to have at home!
You can take the time to revisit the past by grabbing your own Ninja Turtles The Next Mutation DVD from Amazon for $14.99. It’s an amazing 2-Disc Set that even includes the original 13 Episodes!
