TMNT (1987) Season 7, Part 2: The European Vacation Episodes (again)

Come Hell or high water, I was determined to get through the European Vacation episodes of TMNT.  And I did!  Check out my review at AIPT.

These were pretty bad.  The quality control was already circling the drain at the start of this "side season", but as we reached the last half of it, the show just began to fall to pieces.

Now, I will say that "Shredder's New Sword" was pretty good.  Along with "Artless", it's one of the only genuinely enjoyable episodes in this arc.

But the rest is pretty lousy.  Especially the one where they go visit Dublin... which is nothing but grassy fields and sheep.  If I have any actual Irish readers here at TMNT Entity, you can tell me whether that was an accurate depiction of Dublin or not.

Anyway, next time I'll be doing the REAL season 7 episodes, and many of those are actually pretty darn good.  So I've got that to look forward to.

I can't believe you're almost done reviewing the entire original cartoon. Since Seasons 8-10 are only 8 episode seasons each, Season 7 is the last one with a standard 13 episode order.

Season 7 is also a fond farewell for most of the recurring villains and heroes of the show. David Wise brought back almost all the major villains and heroes for one last appearance in Season 7, since many of these characters don't continue to appear into Season 8 or beyond.

Season 7 felt like a nice farewell to the series as it was known for before the animation revamp for Seasons 8-10.
