    Even if the release ends up sucking... it's still only ~$12 (most places), so not a major loss if that happens.

    According to that review there seems to be an alternate "original" theme for the first season... I don't remember any other TMNT theme song but can anyone confirm whether this farmiliar track will be included in any of the episodes on this disc...?


    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,
    Heroes in a half-shell, Turtle Power!

    They’re the world’s most fearsome fighting teens
    They’re heroes in a half shell and they’re green
    When the evil Shredder attacks
    These turtles boys don't cut him no slack!

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,

    Splinter taught them to be ninja teens
    Leonardo leads, Donatello does machines
    Raphael is cool but crude (gimme' a break)
    Michaelangelo is a party dude


    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
    Heroes in a half shell, Turtle power!



    Also, what's this about...

    "The box cover is good-looking, but it's hard to get the case out of the box for some reason."

    I thought it came in a regular green amaray keep case?

    Can anyone confirm this, because I never order box-sets online and I've had this preordered through Video Universe since it was announced. I just want to know if I should cancel my pre-order and pick this up in person on Tuesday?

    The theme song is the same for Season 1 as it always has been. This was one of the first songs I memorized as a kid and I'd notice a change-there is no change. The bonus episodes do have a different theme song but this was much later in the series so they finally changed it.

    I got mine yesterday and it's definitely worth the green (no pun intended). The print used for the first episode is a little dirty but it's still watchable and hardly distracting. The other four are great with deep colors and clear images. The audio's not bad either, I was hearing sound effects more clearly than ever. Artisan did a great job with the disc and I can only hope we get Season 2 (all though the packaging says nothing of it being Season 1 the identiying label on the top of the case does) sooner than they released Season 2 of Speed Racer.

    Speed Racer Volume 2 is due on May 18th so that's not really going to happen.

    When I read the blurb in that link David helpfully provided, I came away with the impression that the music change was done on the episodes that are considered the extras on the disc. Reason for that conclusion is that the review says something like "Including live action shots from the movies." That would've been pretty difficult in 1987 when there was no movie.

    Yes, my set arrived yesterday. The "alternate music" is only on the "unaired" episodes from the last season.

    Man, I REALLY hope there are more releases of this...season sets PLEASE!!
