Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation on DVD - A Recap

There remains to be a bit of confusion about The Next Mutation's availability, so here's the complete run down.

The complete series is now available on DVD in the UK. As such, while the box says Ninja Turtles, the theme song and titles on the episodes say Hero Turtles. It also seems to be the case that some episodes have been edited, but this is pretty much your only option unless some miracle sees these released in the US some day.

Here are the two box sets you need to get all 26 episodes:


The set on the left, Volume 1, is a repackaging of three discs that were previously released. Those three discs are East Meets West (episodes 1-5), Staff of Bu-Ki (episodes 6-8), and All in the Family (episodes 9-11). This is important information, because based on the listing, this set is now out of print. If you can't find the set, perhaps you can find the individual discs.

The set on the right, Volume 2, just got released this month after being delayed from its original 2007 scheduled release. This set is a true box set that features episodes 12-26. You can currently find this set on, but I would recommend purchasing sooner rather than later, as all of these have been going out of print very fast.

If all else fails, there's always eBay, but you'll need to look at At the moment, seller drstevew has both DVD sets available (Volume 1, Volume 2).

Of course, to watch any of these you'll need to be able to play Region 2, PAL-encoded DVDs. To do this you can buy an expensive region-free DVD player or there are ... other ways. A little time spent with the Google should help you find information that will allow you to view these discs without spending any additional money.

Good luck!


  1. -->> ..o lord.. i get so mixed up easy ..

    thanks a million X ,Rose..

    ugghh .. >v<

  2. This is a great blog Rose. I think I will be tuning in more often. I'll certainly be reading up on the backlog about the Tales issues I've missed.


  3. Are you sure the 'All In The Family' disc was ever available outside of the set? I was under the impression it was exclusive to the set.

  4. It's possible that disc wasn't available separately, but if that is the case it's just a technicality since I mostly provided the information so that someone could put together a collection of all three discs on the secondary market. Since all of the discs appear to be out of print anyways, it really doesn't matter what was available at retail.
