Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - New Info About '87 TMNT DVDs

Posted by David Lambert
Last summer we posted this news about plans for the original 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon coming on DVD in March 2004 from Artisan, albeit in a form that was considered "bad news" (read the story at that link for details). The fans wanted to "open up a dialogue" with Artisan and see if the format of the release could be changed. Since then things have been rather quiet on that front, even as DVDs from the TMNT '03 series continued to be released.

Now we have a new hint of activity on the '87 series. Over at the official Mirage Studios website for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you can find an interesting item in their "Updates" section:
    Matt R. sent in this repsonse that he got from Artisan Home Entertainment regarding his inquiry about DVD releases of the orignal TMNT cartoon:

    "Thank you for your letter expressing interest in
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You will be happy to know that we are planning to release the original episodes on DVD in April 2004. Thank you again for your interest in Artisan Home Entertainment."

So now we see that the release was delayed one month, which possibly was simply a result of Artisan's merger with Lions Gate Entertainment. At this point in time we have no official word about what that release will consist of.

Our thanks goes to Ryan Anderson for tipping us off to this. Stay tuned, because once the details DO leak out, we'll get word to you fast. In the meantime, hold the anchovies!
