The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are joined by Vernon and Burne!

The Turtles are back but unfortunately so are Shredder, Krang, Rocksteady, and Bebop!  Fighting for the rights of the free, and for pizza, the Turtles are kicking shell!  Be it snake monsters, nightmare villains, or a giant Irma, the lives of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Splinter, and April are never dull.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles—Season 6 aired from September 12, 1992 to December 26, 1992.  The series aired on Saturday mornings on CBS and has been collected on DVD.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were a weird phenomenon.  By this point, the series was already losing its audience, and the popularity had already peaked.  Despite this, the series continues on its normal episodes which couple have easily been part of any season.

I do like regular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle villains, and this season is rather lacking in the regular characters.  I would have liked to have seen some Casey Jones, Leatherhead, or Baxter Stockman, but the show did not have many of its old character.  The season does have the return of the Turtleoid Kerma, but it primarily is new villains (except the standard Shredder crew).

Willy Wombat is coming for your soul!!!

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles also had weird habits which does confuse the idea of who the show’s target audience was.  The show often made references to movies and events that were far above the audience’s age level, and the show in reality is rather kiddie to be enjoyed by viewers that the jokes target.  The Turtles also have a habit of addressing the camera and breaking the 4th wall, but it is so erratic that is odd when it happens.

I can watch and enjoy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles simply because I watched it when it was on in the original run.  I had already quit watching it at this point so it is fun to get to see “new” episodes of the series that I’ve never seen.  It feels like visiting an old friend, but it is not as much of a quality show as something like Transformers or G.I. Joe which frequently had continuing plotlines.  The Turtles if nothing else are predictable and comforting.
