–>> Slight rehash,re-release, re-gifting of the 2004 4kids/ Funimation release of <a href=”https://www.flickr.com/photos/terrible2z/3123818843″ target=”blank”” TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES :: “Michelangelo’s Christmas Rescue” – the mix of bare-bones episodes from the 2003 series is OK, but is short by one compared to the ’04 release. A good stocking-stuffer for the kids tho’ if the ’04 version was nothing but a ghost of Christmas past.
The cover art is style-guide work i’d previously been unfamiliar with. 4kids alumni Khary Randolph confirmed he DID NOT supply these images to Nickelodeon. Another 4kids style-guide contributor, Mirage Studio’s Michael Dooney may have been the artist behind these illustrations ( they have that vibe ), no confirmation on that tho’. They may have been newer style-guide pieces commissioned by Viacom themselves.
‘Tis the season to shell out some justice with 3 throwback Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles episodes! Get in the holiday spirit with Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo as they pass out some seasons’s beatings to a gang of thieves, Foot Tech Ninjas, and the Purple Dragons!
INCLUDES the Episodes :
• The Christmas Aliens
