If you’re a fan of those classic pizza-loving fighting turtles from the 1980s and 90s, Lionsgate has good news for you. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Complete Classic Series Collection was released on Nov. 13, 2012, and it’s pretty amazing.

Not only did they clue a whole generation of kids into the specialized skills required to be a covert mercenary in feudal Japan, but they’re also just plain fun.

Here’s the backstory: The four turtles were transformed into humanoids by a strange ooze and were trained as ninja by a human martial arts master, Hamato Yoshi, who was changed into a humanoid rat, Splinter, by the same substance (shades of Gamera, right?). Together with fearless reporter April O’Neil, they fight against the threats against the world, including archenemies Shredder, Krang and Lord Dregg.

Cam Clarke, Townsend Coleman, Renae Jacobs, Barry Gordon, Peter Renaday, Rob Paulsen, Pat Fraley, and Jim Cummings were some of the main voices throughout the Cowabunga-crazed series.

Here’s a video from Daemon Hatfield, a senior editor at IGN.com, that tells a little about the set. He mentions a price of $66 on Amazon, but right now today, the price is $88 (and on Black Friday, too! What the heck, Amazon?). But still a great addition to any TMNT fan’s collection, especially if you’re wondering what to get them for Christmas. Problem solved.
