Episode Summary

EDIT
Donatello's Degree
AIRED:
Donatello gets an invitation to accept his degree personally from Professor Sopho at Sopho University. The only problem is that the invitation is addressed to a Miss Donna Tello. Donatello asks Irma to go in his place while he accompanies her in a hidden trunk. While Irma gets a tour of the University, Donatello decides to have a look around the college. He discovers that Professor Sopho has built a device to speed up the Earth's rotation. Sopho is plannig on using the machine to fling everything from the Earth's surface into space. The Professor's body guards catch Don-san snooping around, but, he manages to get away.

Meanwhile, Michaelangelo's fish, Maxwell, escapes and jumps into the sewer. Raphael, Leonardo and Michaelangelo jump in after the fleeing fish. The Turtles end up following Max all the way to Bottomless Lake. There, they see April with Vernon doing a story on the Lake. Mr. Thompson contacts April and tells her to head over to Sopho University so she can tape an announcement being made to the world by Professor Sopho.

Back at the University, Donatello tries to warn Irma about Sopho's plans, but she does not believe him. He runs into the body guards again but this time he's not able to escape. At the graduation ceremony, Irma discovers that the Professor's plans are exactly as Donny described, and she runs away from the whacked Prof. She finds Donatello tied up, but is not able to free him. The Professor starts to follow through with his plan and the Earth starts rotating rapidly, changing it from night to day to night.

Michaelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo go in the University to find Donatello. Using one of Irma's hair pins, they are able to stop the magnetometer from spinning. Michaelangelo ends up catching Maxwell and Professor Sopho and his body guards get arrested and locked up.moreless

  • Donatello gets his degree, but only if he's a girl!

    8.0
    I liked the Donatello+Irma team-up in this episode. I thought it was awsome that there was an episode where the two acted as a team and interacted. I know this is all silly fan girl wishing but I always thought that there was some under laying attraction between these two characters. And I thought it was interesting that Don chose Irma to go and impersonate him instead of April (although logically he probably didn't choose April because every one knows she is a reporter and any one would reconise her..but still). Another thing about that this episdes showed is how the other turtles seem to sort of resent Donatello and his intellect. They all seemed pretty annoyed that his intellect gave him special privledges to skip out on spring cleaning. And the turtles seemed pretty unsupportive and insenceative to his plight at not being able to get his diploma. I mean considering how hard he worked for it you would have thought they would have more condolance to give other than "tough tortias Donatello".moreless
