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.

Trivia

Fans of the franchise where not happy about the addition of the fifth turtle, Venus, and Kevin Eastman and Laird have never revived her in any future TMNT variations. However they are secretly still fans of the idea, but just keep her out of the franchise now to keep fans happy. However they have kept her spirit alive by adding small references in images now and then. Most recently a centrefold like image of her was included on the side of a 2016 RC vehicle of the turtle van. Things similar to this appear from time to time from the creators as a small homage for their own amusement. See more »

It's Good
22 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No matter what anyone says, Saban Entertainment did a great job in creating this series. Though it had a very short lived life, just like Masked Rider, VR Troopers, Big Bad BeetleBorgs, and the Mystic Knights. It did have a good one episode team-up in the sixth season of Power Rangers: Power Rangers in Space (which is going into it's 13th season Febuary 2005 and I'm still a fan). Too bad there wasn't a second season of Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. Although Saban should have continuted the series, because you can tell the last episode was meant to lead into the next season. Also I love how they incorporated another Ninja Turtle into the series... Venus.
