  • Episode Description
  • The boys have made friends with a group of homeless, and are worried when they start mysteriously disappearing into the night! Some Turtle-style detective work leads them to the Garbageman, an immense, smelly egomaniac, who is kidnapping the homeless for slave labor to build an empire on a foundation of garbage. Sounds like it's time for the Turtles to take out the trash!

    • Mikey: (impersonating Arnold Schwartzenegger) Something stinks on that island, and it ain't the garbage! Raph: Yeah, keep trying Mikey! Someday you'll get a winner! Mikey: Hey, c'mon! That was pretty good!

    • Mikey: Can somebody please explain why I'm always the bait? Especially when we're hunting sharks! Raph: Geez, what a whiner! Almost wish he would get grabbed!

    • Mikey: (singing) T-M-N-T! What you get is what you see! (All the turtles look at him) Raph: Seriously, you're just embarrasing yourself...

    • Mikey: It's trash day, Garbageman! Time to kick your can to the the curb! Garbageman: What? Mikey: Okay... How 'bout 'Time to dump you to the dumpster, smelly boy!' Garbageman: You! Shut up!

    Notes (3)

    • Villain: Garbageman

    • Prologue Narrator: Donatello

    • Almost identical to the Batman: The Animated Series episode "The Forgotten." Both episodes feature a slob kidnapping homeless people and forcing them into slavery.

    • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze Leonardo: It's quiet, too quiet. Michelangelo: Okay, how does Leo make that line work? This is remniscent of a scene from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze. When Rapahel is captured and the rest of the turtles go to rescue him. Leo says the line, "It's quiet, a little too quiet." Mikey in his efforts to crack jokes says when they see Raph, "It's Raph, a little too Raph."
