  • Episode Description
  • After Casey Jones makes himself an unwanted guest in the Turtles' lair, Raphael takes him topside for a "breath of fresh air," where they encounter the Foot Tech Ninjas — enhanced with cyber armor that makes them faster, stronger and (most deadly of all) able to cloak themselves to virtual invisibility. Raph is kidnapped and interrogated, but Casey manages to slip away and warn the other Turtles. Raph escapes his captors but, unbeknownst to him, is tailed by a squad of cloaked Foot Tech Ninjas. Will Casey and the others get to Raph in time before he leads the Foot Tech Ninja directly to the Turtles' lair?moreless

  • One of the better stand-alone episodes of the first season.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (16)

    • Baxter Stockman: (after Raph escapes from the boat) You fool! I was this close to obtain that DNA sample and you let him escape! Hun: Precisely. I let him escape to lead us to the others. Even as we speak, a swarm of Foot Tech ninjas are trailing the creature. So, now it's all up to your invisible boys. Better hope they don't blow it.

    • Baxter Stockman: (to Oroku Saki) While your oversized lackey wastes time in an effort with the pointless scribblings of street thugs, I have created something useful to intercept your amphibians pest. I give you the Foot Tech ninjas.

    • Hun: (about the turtles) Maybe they're working for your old enemies. Stockman: More likely a top secret government experiment. Saki: (grabs Stockman) I am not interested in theories! (toss Stockman aside)

    • Stockman: Is this a field report or a fantasy novel? (Oroku Saki slaps the pictures off Stockman) Saki: Fool! It wasn't fantasy that destroyed your Mouser robots, Dr. Stockman! (to Hun) It wasn't fantasy that you banned the Sword of Tengu from your Foot Soldiers!

    • Casey: Graffiti! It's everywhere, All over town! Michelangelo: I think I speak for everyone in the room when I say 'duh!' Donatello: We're New Yorkers, Casey. We've seen graffiti before. Casey: Not like this. (holds up a picture of a tag showing a sword impaling four turtles)

    Notes (3)

    • Villains: Oroku Saki, Hun, Baxter Stockman, Foot Tech Ninja, Foot Soldiers, and Purple Dragons

    • Prologue Narrator: Raphael

    • We see Baxter has paid the price for his Mousers' failure: his left eye has been slashed out.

    Trivia (1)

    • Stockman calls the Turtles "amphibious pests." Turtles are reptiles.

    Allusions (4)

    • Code of Bushido Leonardo mentions Bushido in one scene after Casey mispronounces the term. Technically, Bushido is the Code of Honor followed by the Samurai, not Ninja (of course, given Splinter's morals, it makes sense he might teach the Turtles something similar to Bushido).

    • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Raphael and Casey exchange insults including 'Gackface.' These are used between Casey and Donatello in the original 1990 film when using insults in alphabetical order.

    • Saturday Night Live Michelangelo: And that's how they defeated The Thing That Wouldn't Leave! The Thing That Wouldn't Leave is a reference to an old Saturday Night Live skit of when a house guest seriously overstays his welcome.

    • Star Trek Casey: Cloking devices. What are they, Klingons? The Klingons are a warrior race that has appeared in most Star Trek series and have the ability to cloak their space ships.
