Storyline

In this live-action TV series, the Turtles are older than in the movies or cartoon, and are joined by a fifth, female Turtle. "Venus De Milo" mutated with the other 4 Turtles but was washed away with the current in the sewer into New York's Chinatown before Splinter came across the turtles. After learning the Shinobi arts in China for 17 years, Venus has returned to New York. The Turtles are now faced with new villains such as Dragon Lord, Bonesteel and Vam Mi. Written by Venus De Milo <venus__de__milo@hotmail.com>

Trivia

In this series, Leonardo uses a single straight-sword instead of twin katanas and Michelangelo uses tonfa batons. The latter change was made to get around the marketing headache the cartoon series suffered from which was caused by nunchucks being banned (and heavily stigmatized) weapons in the UK and some other territories.

Goofs

In most driving scenes you see Leonardo start to drive the hummer but Michelangelo is the one driving when they are on the street. See more »

Sad...very sad.
9 September 2000 | by (Abilene, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

It seems that television has once again decided to beat a dead horse. The "Turtlemania" craze was perfectly fine in the late 80's-early 90's. And, as most crazes do, it died a natural death, quietly going the way of the dinosaur. But Fox Kids just HAD to resurrect it. As with most dead things rising from the grave, the results weren't pretty. The acting was mediocre, the the costuming was atrocious, and the special effects were on par with Sesame Street. The "villains" were so transparent, Stevie Wonder could have read a newspaper through them. If you were a Turtle fan, go buy copies of the original comics and movies. If you hated the Turtles, this will simply reinforce your well-placed dislikes.

All in all, give it a miss. For that matter, in the "Star Rating System", this one owes US a few stars!
