Blu-ray, Cartoons

This TMNT DVD Set Is Definitely Cowabunga Worthy

I don’t say “Cowabunga” much in everyday life — indeed, I actively try to avoid it — but if there’s a time to say it, it’s probably now. The complete original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon will come out in one DVD set, packaged like in a special Party Van case, with 23 discs inside for the low price of $100. Apparently the discs will be exactly the same as the individual season releases, so if you bought those… you’re kind of screwed, unless you want to buy it again. Sorry, but it happens to the best of us. The new set doesn’t come out until November 13th, so you have a little over two months to decide whether a plastic case shaped vaguely like a cartoon van is worth ponying up another $100.
