    Apparently it's out on Region two DVD. The store is supposedly reputable, and probably wouldn't sell bootleg copies according to the message board this news was posted on. Only strange thing is, with DVD's capacity to hold at least 7 high quality eps, they only contain two. Probably just direct dupes from the VHS tapes...
    Anyone wanna try ordering one of these things, assuming you can read the site it's being sold on, and give us a report?

    I like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but I don't know about these so-called Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles that the box advertises. [​IMG]

    Teenage mutant ninja turtles was renamed to Teenage mutant hero turtles in Europe

    I think mostly due to an attempt in the UK to shield children from everything that is generally fighting related (Think removing headbutts from Mulan etc) and the name involving ninja was not acceptable.

    I sound a little vague because I can never remember the exact reasons given...

    Given that they're Swedish dub-only, I don't think you'd want them anyway

    Basically it's the BBFC's wacky policies, and they follow suit for the rest of Europe
