Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Intro Revealed

Although several fans are disappointed that Nickelodeon’s TMNT series will soon be coming to an end, the network is prepared to push forward with Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in less than two weeks! This re-branding will represent the final season of the CGI animated series beginning on March 19th. In preparation for the new take on our favorite heroes in a half shell, Nick just released an entirely new introduction which will air before each episode in season five.

As you can see, this intro is quite different from anything we’ve seen during the first four seasons of the show. Some fans have pointed out that it has a bit of a Cowboy Bebop feel to it, and they’ve definitely got a point. The music has also changed quite a bit, taking on a much different style than we had heard from the theme song for previous seasons. It would appear that Nickelodeon really wants to sell the idea of this re-branding, but only time will tell if this makes the final season feel any more special.

For those who are unaware, Playmates Toys actually broke the news that Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will feature four full story archs spread across 20 episodes. The first story is about Super Shredder, and it has clearly already begun. The next three stories feature Usagi Yojimbo, a retro Bebop & Rocksteady and the turtles as Monster Hunters. Personally, I’m sad to see this brilliant television show end, but I’m happy to see the amount of effort they’ve put into making the final season a blast.

Here’s hoping that Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and its successor will both be an excellent experience for shellheads everywhere.

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!
