The first episode is called Mayhem, where the turtles are trying to help April and her new-found pet and how the turtle’s world is populated with mutants.

If this first episode is how the rest of the series is going I may be watching just like the other past shows. Oh, yea the show intro is awesome

Now let me first say that this show is not like the shows before it. There have been many changes in it like all the turtles are different types of turtles, for instance, we have Raphael aka Raph who is voiced by Omar Benson Miller and is common snapping turtle he’s the older brother of the group and is the team leader. Which reminds me of the song Turtle Power by Partners in Kryme where they say Raph is the leader. Next, we have Leonardo aka Leo who is voiced by Ben Schwartz and he is a red-eared slider who think of himself as the coolest brother, to me he seems too much like Mikey. Donatello aka Donnie who is voiced by Josh Brenerm and he is a softshell turtle who is the genius of the team. He hasn’t changed too much. last but not least is Michelangelo aka Mikey who is voiced by Brandon Mychal Smith and he is a box turtle who is the youngest jokester, prankster brother, He’s also the artist of the group.

April O’Neil who is voiced by Kat Graham, She’s the best friend of the Turtles and is now an African-American girl. I like this version of her because she feels like someone who would befriend with the turtles. And now we have Splinter who is voiced by Eric Bauza He is a humanoid mutant gray rat who is the Ninja Turtles’ sensei and adoptive father. I hope as the series continue Splinter changes because in the first episode he seems lazy and very overweight. Baron Draxum who is voiced by John Cena who is a mutant Yokai warrior and alchemist from the Hidden City. His minions are Hunginn and Muninn who are voiced by Tim Simons and Sam Richardson Two gargoyle-like creatures that are often seen sitting on Baron Draxum’s shoulders
