Episode Summary

EDIT

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?"
