Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutagen Mayhem (CGI version/Nickelodeon DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: C Main Program: B+

The Turtles are back again! ...but just barely after just saving the world from an alien invasion, the Turtles accidentally drop 63 canisters of mutagen on the city of New York... including April's father. Now, they must recover the canisters and stop a bunch of crazy new mutants in Mutagen Mayhem, the newest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles CGI DVD release.

In this chapter, the Shredder and Kraangs take more of a backseat as the Turtles face a bunch of new mutants and Karai's new robotic foot soldiers, but along with new enemies are new friends, Casey Jones makes his debut. As April blames the turtles for turning her father into a mutant, she takes a leave from the turtles and turns to Casey Jones (to Donatello disappointment). Karai is now in charge and wants to test out her new ninja robots.

This is a new generation of TMNT, while Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo are still the pizza loving ninjas, April O'Neal is also a teenage ninja girl in training (whom Donatello has a crush on), the Shredder also has a daughter Karai (who's really Splinter's daughter) and the Kraangs are a race of aliens that are trying to invade the earth.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital sound are fine and on par with the previous CGI DVD releases in the series. Extras include 6 shorts: "The Mutation of a Scene", and Channel 6 New Special Report: Creatures of the Night.
