More of a spoof and a cheap way to milk the cow and sell some toys... but I love it!
30 August 2006 | by (Östersund, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Me and some buddies sat down and watched a downloaded copy of this ova. We loved the old series as kids (but now sadly have to say that it weren't that good in the animation version) and we followed the movies as they emerged on cinema... and the laughter began...

Think nothing else... this is a total spoof on the whole turtles franchise with everything in it, even mixed up in a pseudo Dai Ranger setting... And if you are not offended by the tastelessness of the humor then you are going to love it just as we did. And apparently it was made to sell some toys and left unfinished as to somewhat give the idea to the kids that they will keep on fighting with their toys... or maybe it was a two part pilot that never got continuing money...

think of it as maybe an excel saga special or something. But I don't want to spoil it for you... just try to get it!
