When I first found out about the new Ninja Turtles Nicktoon, I was excited! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was one of my favorite cartoon series growing up and the new Nicktoon was something to be excited about. With various elements from both the Mirage Comics series and the 80's cartoon I was a big fan of, it is a great combination. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Complete Classic Series Collection I also love how the Nicktoon introduced Donatello's crush on April.
For some odd reason, Walmart released the DVD the week before Amazon did, so I'm watching the DVD right now! The key thing to know about this DVD release features an `uncut' version of the hour-long pilot episode `Rise of the Turtles' (let's see a Season Box Set do that!), along with five additional episodes from the first season. Before the DVD's release, I only saw two of the episodes that are featured on it "New Friend, Old Enemy" and " I Think His Name Is Baxter Stockman", all the others I saw were later episodes.

So, it might be worth it, it depends on your own opinions.
