  • Episode Description
  • All over the city, high ranking corporate executives are being kidnapped by men in business suits, but the Turtles don't get involved until they learn that one of these corporations is the world's largest suppliers of pizza. The Turtles charge into action by staking the T.I.H.C. (The Incredibly Huge Corporation) which has yet to be "hit." They do not wait long in vain. Within moments, a black limousine pulls up in front of the TIHC Headquarters and from within it disembark four men in suits carrying laser rifles. The Turtles try to stop them, but are thwarted by their laser blasts. However, one of the Turtles was able to recover a briefcase belonging to one of the businessmen. When opened, it reveals documents with the name Octopus, Inc.The Turtles recruit Casey Jones to infiltrate the Headquarters of Octopus, Inc. so that they will have a better understanding of what they are up against, but while staking out the TIBD (The Itty Bitty Corporation) and waiting to hear from Casey, another black limousine pulls up and unloads men in suits with laser guns. The Turtles try to stop them. Donatello throws water on the businessmen causing them to snap out of their trances and tell the Turtles that they were kidnapped by Octopus, Inc. and brainwashed to commit crimes. The Turtles rush back to Octopus, Inc., rescue Casey and storm the President's office only to encounter Shredder, who has them tied up and thrown into a broom closet with the real president of Octopus, Inc. -- Octavious Ogilvy, to await the "Grand Arising" -- the rising of the Technodrome in the old Octopus Stadium. The Turtles must interrupt this "Grand Arising."moreless

  • Quotes (5)

    • Casey: If we don't get to break something soon, I'm gonna go nuts. Raphael: Funny; I thought you went nuts years ago.

    • Interviewer: You have an interesting employ record, but I wonder if you're right for Octopus, Inc. Casey: (wielding baseball bat) How'd you like to see for yourself, Mr. ScuzzBucket? (smacks papers off his desk) Interviewer: Hmm, an agressive, ruthless attitude. I like that. You're hired.

    • Michelangelo: (as Donatello prepares the Retro-Catapult) A gizmo that flings garbage? Raphael: The forces of evil everywhere are quaking in terror. (A tomato smacks him in the face.)

    • Leonardo: Quick, get their weapons! (Businessmen aim their blasters) Raphael: If their weapons don't get us first.

    • Rocksteady: (On his intercom) Secretary? Bring me 500 jelly donuts... and a diet soda. I'm trying to watch my weight.

    • Episode included on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 5 DVD.

    • Introduction of the Retrocatapult.

    Trivia (3)

    • The title, Corporate Raiders from Dimension X, is misleading. Donatello speculates that the businessmen attacking may be collaborators of Krang, but that is proved false after immediately finding out that the businessmen are actual employees for Octopus, Incorporated.

    • When Bebop, Rocksteady and the Businessmen are fighting the Turtles, Raphael's voice does not move when he says, "Don't you agree that there is violence in today's workplace?"

    • Raphael in Leonardo's voice says, "Shredder, so you're the one behind these chrome collared crimes."
