I thought Johnny was going to leap out of the car when I showed him the latest movie that showed up at our door. I brought a copy of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Ultimate Showdown with me when I picked him up from school. I asked him how his day was and how he behaved. His friends were in the car with us too and agreed that it was a “good day”. I told Johnny I had a surprise for him and showed him this DVD. He screamed, started clapping, and he and his friends were high-fiving each other. I guess they love TMNT.
Since that time, Johnny has watched this DVD several times. He loves it. But, not only that, he loves the Lego Comic Book that was included in the packaging (available for a limited time). He sits and reads it over and over. I have asked him repeatedly what his favorite episode was on this DVD set but each time he gives me a different answer. When I asked him a final time and informed him that he keeps giving me a different answer, he calmly told me that it is because “they are all so good”. Well then.
The finale has to be the best part in my opinion. This is a special two-part episode, aptly named The Ultimate Showdown. What will you see? You will find the ultimate showdown against the Kraang and the Shredder himself. I don’t think you can ask for more than that!
