Love it love it!

For those who don't like this video, I whole heartedly disagree. I too was a little kid when the tour came out and I saw it live. It was the coolest thing I ever saw! Of course the costumes are different, have you checked out the choreography they have to do? They have to be able to move! And yeah the fight scenes are kinda cheesy but think about it, it's a live performance for little kids, plus I don't think their costumes could handle that much abuse. The plot I thought was great, the kids get so into it when they know the turtles will be there to save the day. And I love how the personalities are so polished in each of the turtles, they are so "cool" kids can relate and love it! I still watch it and still sing along, the voice quality of the songs and the music in general is awesome. I especially love April's Ballad. Songs like that aren't easy to belt. I actually used that song for an audition once. And at 22, I still get goosebumps when I hear "You Can Count On Us." It's OK if you hate this show in comparison to other turtle material, but appreciate the work that was put into it, how many kids it touched, and how many people still watch and love the tape after all these years.
