I think having April in the show might have helped make Venus more tolerable as it would have given her another female character to bounce off of.
As for "Hero Turtles" vs "Ninja Turtles", the turtles have so little in common with actual ninjas, calling them "Hero Turtles" might be more fitting.
What was with the UK not wanting to use the term "ninja" anyway?
Hero Turtles is much more generic though.
"Ninja" was considered too violent by UK censors, probably due to the connotations of ninjas being assassins.
I always found it hilarious that they had so much problems with Michelangelo's nunchucks when Leonardo and Raphael actually have bladed weapons. I can understand it on some level, since Mikey was allowed to use his weapons more often because they're non-lethal, but it's still such an odd decision.

"You are like a daughter to me"
Well, that would hurt.
I guess the vehicle start-up sequences were supposed to be like the morphing sequences from Power Rangers in that they were filler scenes.
You know, they could have gotten some pathos from Andre being friendly towards Splinter and the turtles. Was it only because he was blind or did he know what they really were and didn't care.

So was Venus in China or New York's Chinatown district? The latter would explain how she got to the Turtles' place so quickly and without being seen and the song even says she was in Chinatown. Did the writers just now know the difference between China and Chinatown?
If they wanted Venus to be a love interest for Leo, why remove the turtles' familial relationship? Venus didn't have to be one of the turtles in the bowl she could have either been from another universe or be a newly mutated turtle.
The vagueness over why the dragons were imprisoned is pretty weird given that Saban is usually more clear as to why their villains were sealed away.
Also, why is Splinter able to dream walk? When did he gain this ability and why did he not teach it to the turtles? Dream walking in this show seems to only serve the purpose of explaining how the dragons escaped into the human world.
Okay if Venus can make stupid puns like that how are things like jokes and games so alien to her?
The scenes with "dumb and horny" turtles are really painful to watch. Does the writers of that show really thought it would be funny?
Ninja Turtles: Next Mutation Episode 3
@2:20 In fairness, they probably didn't want to leave Splinter behind in case the lair got attacked.
Did this show ever explain how or why Splinter learned to dream walk? I don't think he even used afterwards in the show. The only purpose it serves is to explain how the dragons escaped into the human world.
Dragon Lord's voice sounds good. Too bad it's wasted on such a lackluster villain.
I think the Turtles have always been kind of bad at stealth if you look at things realistically but it stands out more in this show.
I'm beginning to notice some similarities between Venus and Justin from Power Rangers Turbo. Both are scrappies from really badly received entries their respective franchises but the characters themselves aren't that bad. Rather, it's everything around them that is so awful.

The final part of 5 episode starting arc of the series.
Ghostbusters (Goodtimes) - Phelous
Rumpelstiltskin (Britannica) - Phelous
Didn't think Dingo Pictures had bad enough animation? How about no animation period? Phelous takes a look at their Easter movie, Bunny the Rabbit:
I finished rewatching Mortal Komedy. I really hope he continues the series. It's gotten a lot better since the first few episodes. Mainly, a few jokes were... eh. Jax's first appearance was less than appealing.
Phelous takes another look at Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation with an episode that deals with chi-bomb planes and using time travel to play tug-of-war:
Resident Evil 3 (Re Make) - Phelous
Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation (Ep 07) All in the Family - Phelous
The one villain I remember above all others..
Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation (Ep 08) Silver and Gold - Phelous
Ever wanted to know what Mulan would be like if she was a bug? Too bad, as Phelous takes a look at The Secret of Mulan:
This is the one bootleg Disney movie clone I've been looking forward to the most.
