Michaelangelo's pizza-craving appetite gets the better of him once again, driving him to empty his brother's entire supply!
The other turtles, having tolerated all they can of thier brother's highly obsessive eating habits, use hypnosis to "persuade" Michaelangelo to do the unthinkable: CRAVE PIZZA NO MORE!
Meanwhile, Shredder hatches a diabolical scheme using a new device, a holo-emiter capable of creating exact duplicates of anyone whose biological information is stored in the machine's database.
The villain hopes to use this techhnique to control the world's prime movers and shakers--giving him undisputed mastery of the planet.
To test the device, Shredder creates a copy of Michaelangelo, but during the experiment, Rocksteady and Bebop's usual incompetence manages to cause the device to malfunction.
In the chaos that follows, a blast from the device hits Shredder , and the villain soon starts acting not quite himself...but more like Michaelangelo!
When Shredder waltzes into their lair acting like thier bro, the confused Turtles decide to take advantage of his situation. Using the hypnosis techniques, the Turtles are able to switch their arch-foe between his Michaelangelo and Shredder personas through two key words: "Michaelangelo" will keep Shredder in his current persona, and the word "Shredder" will revert the villian back to his old, insidious self.
The Turtles hope to learn about Shredder's plans this way, but how long will tin-grin be exclaiming "Cowabunga?"

Michelangelo is suppose to be tied at the ankles, but during the parts where Michelangelo is gagged with a cloth, his ankles are not tied.
During the scene after Michelangelo's been hypnotized, when the turtles ask him if he wants pizza, the animation is noticeably different... almost in a looney toons style.
How did Shredder know where the Turtles' lair was? The hologram's data zapped Shredder, but the hologram of Michelangelo could not have had the data of the location of the lair, because Krang programmed it, and he didn't know where the lair was.
after leonardo cuts the ropes on michaelangelo the scene shows all for turtles standing in this order: Donatello, Michaelangelo with leo's sword, Raphael,and leo crouched down. Then when it's the close up shot the order is: Donatello, leo, mike, and raph.
In the scene where Raphael and Leonardo are wrapped in pizza dough and about to be burned by the pizza oven, when Raphael says, "Or worse yet, Michelangelo," Leonardo's mouth is moving to the line.
When Michelangelo storms out of the lair, he still has his nunchaku, but they are gone when he is captured by Bebop and Rocksteady.
Raphael looks abnormally short when he says "How long do we have to put up with Canhead like this?"
When Shredder says "Not now, you cretins!", the sock is missing from Mike's mouth.
Bebop stuffs a sock into Michelangelo's mouth right before Shredder returns. When the scene switches back to them after the commercial break, Michelangelo now has a cloth gag. Then, in the next scene in this hideout, the sock is back.
Michelangelo was supposed to be tied up at Shredder's hideout, but apparently the animators forgot that. When Shredder leaves the pizza place, Leonardo, Raphael, and Donatello stick their heads out of the garbage cans, but Leonardo's mask has turned orange. Then, when Leonardo says "That must be his hideout!", Raphael's mask is orange.
Bebop:: We got us a turtle! We got us a turtle!
Michaelangelo:: "Michaelangelo 583: up to a chair". Put a sock in it, will ya? You're giving me a mondo mingrain!
Bebop:: "stuffs a rolled up sock in Michaelangelo's mouth". You put a sock in it!
(Michelangelo wolfs down the pizzas)
Raphael: With an appetite like his, who needs clones?
Splinter: Repeat after me--"I crave pizza no more."
Michaelangelo: I crave pizza no more. I can't believe I'm saying this.
Shredder: Now this disk contains everything we need to know about Michaelangelo. Even his endless appetite for pizza. Insert it gently.
(Bebop inserts the disk the wrong way round)
Rocksteady: (talking quietly) You're puttin' it in backwoids!
Bebop: Big deal! (snorts) So what could happen?
Raphael: Oh, sure is hot in here. NO WONDER! We're about to become today's hot plate special!
Leonardo: What a way to go. We'll probably get eaten by Shredder!
Raphael: Or worse yet, Michaelangelo!
(Shredder stopps the conveyor belt.)
Raphael: Whew! Talk about close. Is that you, Donatello?
Shredder: Guess again. Now hand over that graphics disk!
Raphael: Sure thing, Michaelangelo! (Shredder turns into Michaelangelo)
Shredder/Michaelangelo: Oh wow! Hey dudes, how'd you get in this fix? Or, should I say fixings?
Raphael: It's a long story, just help us out of here.
Shredder/Michaelangelo: With mucho gusto, amigos!
Donatello: Are you guys okay?
Raphael: We're fine. Who doesn't enjoy being wrapped in melted mozzarella?
Bebop: Wow, a turtle. This is even better than finding the boss.
Rocksteady: Yeah, I'm in the mood for some serious turtle bashing!
Shredder: What's happening, compadres?
Michaelangelo: Quick, the Synthesizer! Waste it!
Shredder: Right on. Turtle Power!!
Bebop: Uh, hey boss, what are you doing?
Rocksteady: You gone nuts or something?!
Shredder: COWABUNGA!!! (Synthesizer ray hits him) Uh... where am I?
Bebop: Hey, he's not the boss! He's a turtle in disguise!!
Rocksteady: Then let's rip it off him!
Shredder: (Looks at the burning Synthesizer) What happened to my beautiful Synthesizer?
(Rocksteady and Bebop tackle him)
Bebop: Great disguise!
Rocksteady: Yeah, but not good enough to fool us!
Shredder: You idiots! What are you doing?!!!
Splinter: Who are you? How did you find this place and what is your mission?
Shredder: I am Michaelangelo. This is my home. My mission is to serve the cool forces of good, to obey my totally hip master Splinter, and whenever possible, to consume mondo portions of pizza.
Shredder: (as Michaelangelo) No need, dudes! I brought back some takeout, so like let's get down and pig out.
