    • Night of the Rogues

      9.8
      Krang, Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady break-in to the City Hall of Records and steal a file of maps of The City's sewer system dated 1895. Before they are able to escape back to the Technodrome, they get their collective butts kicked by the Turtles. Licking his wounds in the safety of the Technodrome, Shredder blames Bebop and Rocksteady for his failures, vows vengeance against the Turtles, and decides that while Krang begins his excavation project in the City's sewers (in hopes of discovering a source of treasure) he will be busy recruiting his new minions (to replace Bebop and Rocksteady who have been locked in a room to keep them out of harm's way) to help rid himself of the Turtles once and for all.

      Concerned and confused by Krang's interest in the sewer system, the Turtles set out to investigate, only to quickly encounter Shredder and his villains and former foes, recruited to terminate the Turtles: the Rat King, Slash, Leatherhead, Temptesstra, Scumbug, Anthrax and Chrome Dome! After the Turtles get their butts kicked, they do what they should have done in the first place - run away. Convinced that they will never find them in the sewers, Shredder's Rogues Gallery decides to lure the Turtles out into the open by destroying the City. It works -- even though the Turtles know that this is exactly what the villains were planning. The Turtles are captured and about to be "disintegrated" but with only minutes to spare, they are rescued by Splinter, Irma, April, Casey Jones and Zack the honorary "fifth" turtle. Meanwhile, Krang has unearthed the prize he has been looking for - the Star Ship of the legendary space pirate, Captain Logos. It seems that Captain Logos crash-landed his ship on Earth one thousand years ago, and just as Krang has suspected, it is filled with the space pirate's booty - riches beyond imagination, plundered from every corner of the galaxy.

      However, before Krang and Shredder are able to "transport" Captain Logo's Star ship back to the Technodrome, the Turtles arrive on the scene, and using Shredder's Disintigrator, which was designed to destroy the Turtles, the space pirate's ship is blown to smithereens. Naturally, Shredder's rogues are angry that they will not be getting paid and give chase to Krang and Shredder, who are then rescued by Bebop and Rocksteady who have broken out of their imprisonment because they feared that Shredder needed their help.moreless

      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?"

      While Donatello and the other three Turtles debate the issue of "brains vs. brawn", Donatello's Early Warning Alarm System goes off. According to Donatello's readings, The City has experienced a major vibration emanating from the Earth. Naturally, everyone suspects Shredder and Krang, so they set out to investigate immediately. Donatello's readings lead them to a Government Research Lab, where only moments ago Shredder received a Micro Blaster from one of the resident scientists. The Blaster is supposedly the mightiest (and smallest) weapon known to man. During a fight scene, Donatello is seriously hurt by Shredder. And while Shredder eludes the Security Guards (without his Micro Blaster), the Turtles also retreat back to the lair with a semi-conscious Donatello.

      When Don emerges from his coma he is not quite the same. Something about him is different. But one thing is for sure, he is angry and wants Shredder so bad he can taste it. But Donny feels that he needs a new identity... something that will instill fear in Shredder's heart, something like the Dark Turtle, a Batman-esque crime fighter. Meanwhile, three Star Cruisers loaded with Triceratons have landed in the city, claiming the earth as Triceraton property. Donatello scours the mean streets of the City in search of the Shredder, who is now in cahoots with a local mobster by the name of Wolf Jackson. Leo, Mike, and Raph battle the Triceratons, who are intent upon sending the Earth through their Star Gate and back to the Tricertraon Galaxy where it will be stripped clean.

The 3 decide that they have to find Don and bring him to his senses, with only one hour remaining before the end of the world as we know it. Back to where it all started, Donatello and Shredder are engaged in a final showdown and it looks as if Donatello has the upper hand. In fact, it appears that Donatello really will kill Shredder once and for all! But Leonardo, Raphael and Michaelagelo arrive just in time to save Shredder's life and cause Donatello to fall and knock himself unconscious again.

      When Donatello regains consciousness he cannot remember anything and is embarrased to find himself wearing a comic book character costume. Meanwhile, time is running out for planet Earth, but thanks to Donatello's quick thinking, he is able to convince the Triceratons that the Dark Turtle is the ruler of Earth and that the animatronic dinosaurs from the Natural History Museum are his minions. Of course, Donatello's use of Shredder's Micro Blaster also helped to convince the Triceratons that they should get out...moreless

      Earth is experiencing some kind of atmospheric disturbance which allows the Turtles to view TV shows from other worlds. They are tuning into a wrestling match from Planet of the Turtles, where the Flying Turtlenecker Brothers defeat smaller opponents.

      Dimension X is experiencing the same type of disturbance, which allows Krang to watch the same show. On a commercial break, Krang sees Rupert, a turtle pitchman, selling a Personal Energy Projector. Krang thinks he can use this projector to draw energy from Earth to power the Technodrome. He sends Shredder to the Planet of the Turtles to retrieve the projector. Shredder gets chased by Rupert and the Turtlenecker Brothers back through the portal to Dimension X as he tries to steal the projector. With the Turtlenecker Brothers stuck in Dimension X, Krang convinces them to go and capture the Turtles. He sends them to the sewers through a dimensional portal and they capture the Turtles, bringing them back to the Technodrome. April happens to be with the Turtles and radios Splinter as soon as they disappear. Splinter gets there just in time and he and April enter the portal just before it closes.

      In the Technodrome, Krang has set up the projector and drained almost all of the energy from Earth. The Turtles realize they have to come up with a way to stop Krang. Splinter and April rescue them and they split up. Donatello and Rupert are sent to the Planet of the Turtles to look for Dr. Turtlestein, the inventor of the projector, to see if he knows of a way to stop it. Splinter, April, and the rest of the Turtles stay in the Technodrome to try and stop Krang. Donatello and Rupert come back just in time with a portable transporter and reverse the effects of the projector, sending the energy back to Earth. Dr. Turtlestein uses the transporter to send the Turtles, Splinter and April back to Earth.moreless

      Krang and Shredder are going stir crazy. They have been defeated once too often by the Turtles, so Shredder has decided to do something about it.

Splinter suggests that he and the Turtles should hurry there at once for fear that Shredder may be on his way. But they are too late. Shredder knocks the Turtles out with a ninja smoke bomb and releases the spirit of ShibanoSama. Shredder requests that the Warrior Spirit teach Rocksteady and Bebop the secret ways of the ninja and make them invincible. Shibano Sama replies that only the true leader of the Foot Clan can make such a request.
      Then, the Turtles try to confront Shredder and tell Shibano Sama that Splinter is the true leader. But Shredder has thrown a gas grenade at them, and Splinter has amnesia. The Turtles must rejuvenate his memory while Raphael holds off Shredder and Shibano Sama.

Meanwhile, Michaelengelo and Leonardo encounter two crooks, Bruce and Rodney, who are stealing kimonos from all over town -- including Master Splinter's favorite kimono which had been sent out to the Quick Kimono Cleaners.

      April and Vernon, following a bogus tip, were kidnapped by the Big Boss, Don Tortelli, who is the mastermind behind the theft of the kimonos. Don Tortelli thinks that April knows something about the stolen kimonos and tortures her and Vernon with a feather in order to make them talk.
      Meanwhile, having had little success finding the crooks, Aunt Aggie concocts a scheme to bring the crooks to them. Donatello dresses up like the infamous Cal Worthington of Southern Caliifornia Auto dealership fame and makes a bogus commercial advertising himself a "Kimono Kal" owner of the famous "House of Used Kimonos."

      While surfing in the white water rapids of the sewer, Michaelangelo is rescued by Merdude, a half-man/half fish from the lost city of Atlantis. Merdude left Atlantis over 200 years ago in search of others of his kind - it seems that Merdude is the only mutant in the lost city. But now he has lost his way and the Turtles, using Donatello's Porta-Tracker, volunteer to help him find his way back home. Meanwhile, aboard the Technodrome, Krang's computers are picking up some low-level energy readings emanating nearby. With the Technodrome's power reserves at an all time low, Krang thinks it would be prudent to investigate. Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady, using a much faster Transport Module for the required reconnaissance work, quickly discovers the legendary lost city, and as luck would have it, the Atlanteans believe that Bebop (that's right, Bebop!) is their long lost King. It seems that the Atlanteans have been waiting generations for a strange creature to come from the sea to reclaim his throne, thereby fulfilling their age-old prophecy. But Hepax Lagamina, a young and beautiful Atlantean woman, comes forth and declares that Bebop could not possibly be their king. Hepax insists that the true king would be a water breather and Bebop is a pig! Quick thinking Shredder jumps into the fray and suggests that as king, Bebop should order the traitor to be "clapped into irons" and so she is. By the time Merdude and the Turtles arrive, Bebop, in all his regal finery, is ensconced upon the throne and once again issues the "clap in irons" orders, but Merdude and the TMNT disappear back into the sewers beneath the city of Atlantis. While Bebop enjoys his new role, Shredder and Rocksteady discover the Star of Atlantis, the largest jewel they have ever seen. Shredder contacts Krang, who insures them that this jewel is exactly what they need to use as a focusing crystal and turn the Technodrome's main cannon into the most powerful heat ray in the universe. Realizing that it is too large for just the two of them to carry, Shedder convinces King Bebop to deploy his subjects in the endeavor. Hepax convinces Merdude to challenge Bebop to meet him in the Atlantean arena. Merdude uses his telepathic powers to call upon his friends of the deep. The area is filled with all kinds of aquatic life. Merdude wields the Trident of Power and Bebop quickly renounces his throne. Meanwhile, Shredder steals the Star of Atlantis but the Turtles get it back and return it to Atlantis. Merdude is named King.moreless

      When Donatello, Michaelangelo, and Raphael return from the video arcade, they discover that Donatello's lab is in disarray and that Leonardo is missing. Meanwhile, stuck in the frozen tundra, Krang locates a highly concentrated energy source just outside the city that he believes will be sufficient enough to enable him to blow the entire planet off its axis, thus causing a shift in the Earth's proximity to the sun that would reverse the entire climate of the planet. While the polar ice caps would melt, thus freeing the Technodrome, it would also cause the city to be plunged into a new ice age, paralyzing it for Krang's conquest.

      With the aid of his Hyper Thruster, a contraption large enough to jolt the Earth off of its axis, Krang proposes to use the Foot soldiers to transport it to planet's surface and assemble it while Shredder and Krang locate the mysterious energy source. While out on the streets, still searching for Leonardo, the Turtles discover a break-in at the Blow Hard bubble gum factory and decide to investigate. Inside, they learn that someone is stealing baseball cards and they decide that they owe it to the Youth of America to do something about it.

      Of course that someone turns out to be two someones, Bebop and Rocksteady. After kicking the Turtles' collective butts, they learn that one of the Turtles is missing and return to the Technodrome to inform Shredder. Using Krang's holographic cloaker, Shredder turns Bebop into a bogus Leonardo and sends him back to the planet's surface to distract and confuse the real Turtles who are desperately searching for the real Leonardo.

      While down in the sewers, the real Leonardo is traversing the underground tunnels with one of Donatello's tracking devices, searching for the source of the distress signal he received while the Turtles were at the video arcade, and heading outside the city. Back at the lair, Splinter suggests that they all hold hands and try to contact the sprit of Leonardo, but when they do, they receive a vision of three dinosaurs! Meanwhile, the bogus Leonardo (Bebop) is terrorizing the entire city!

      Over at the gravel pit at the edge of town, Krang and Shredder discover the source of the mysterious energy, an alien craft that burrowed its way up from the center of the Earth. Michaelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello finally catch up with the bogus Leonardo just as the hologram is wearing off. Within minutes, Bebop and Rocksteady spill the beans telling the Turtles about Krang and Shredder's plan to rock the Earth off its axis and where they can be found. But when the Turtles arrive at the gravel pit, they encounter the same three dinosaurs from the vision they shared with Master Splinter back at the lair. Preparing to defend them, Michaelangelo arrives to introduce them to his new friends.

      It seems that Speega, the dinosaur leader, and his comrades are descendants of a group of dinosaurs that escaped extinction millions of years ago by escaping to the center of the Earth. The dino survivors have been on a mission to save endangered species every since. While on just such a mission they damaged their craft and sent out a distress signal that Leonardo picked up on Donatello's equipment. The rest is history. That is until they learn that Shredder and Krang have stolen the dinosaur's energy cells. Thanks to Bebop and Rocksteady, the Turtles know exactly where to find them. And with the help of the Speega and his fellow dinosaurs, they successfully foil Krang's seemingly foolproof plan to conquer the earth.moreless

Meanwhile, Splinter has experienced a disturbance in the force and suggest to the Turtles that they make haste to the Fine Arts Museum, where they follow Shredder back to the year 1583 - the year the Foot Clan came into being.

      Back in ancient Japan, Shredder storms the palace of Oroko Sancho and informs him that he is one of his descendents, Oroko Saki, and that he has traveled from the future to give him power and wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But after Shredder tells him about the location of two magical relics in the forest that would provide Oroko Sancho power and wealth, Shredder's ancestor decides that he can find it for himself without the aid of his descendant. This proves to be his undoing, as Shredder decides to don Oroko Sancho's battle armor, impersonating his arrogant ancestor, and lead his men into the forest.

Before they can pursue Shredder and get the remote they must assist Koji in his quest (and naturally, explain who they are and why they are there). Meanwhile, Shredder must hire new assassins to deal with Koji, Splinter and the Turtles, now that Oroko Sancho's men refuse to fight because they believe that Splinter and the Turtles are Tengus - demons.

      After defeating another hired killer, Koji, Splinter and the Turtles discover the location of the Shibano Sama shrine. Inside they discover the Nomi sword, a legendary blade that can cut through anything, and the Tsunami Box, containing a power greater than any tidal wave. Koji attempts to open the box, but is warned by Splinter that it should only be opened when it is truly needed. No sooner does Kohji have these magical relics in his possession does he begin to dream about the power of his clan, then they find themselves surrounded by Shredder and his samurais.

      During their battle the Tsunami Box is accidentally opened, releasing a giant fire-breathing dragon which, after scaring everyone, heads in the direction of a nearby village. So while Koji and Splinter go off to protect the village, the Turtles are left to keep Shredder and the marauding samurais at bay. Oroko Sancho manages to free himself and declare Shredder as an imposter. Just as his samurais are about to execute Shredder and the Turtles, Koji arrives riding atop the now tamed dragon. Oroko Sansho cowers in fear, revealing his true colors. Koji offers service to Oroko's men as he initiates the Foot Clan. Once again, Shredder's brilliant plan is foiled as Donatello uses Shredder's remote to transport the other three Turtles, Splinter and Shredder back to their own time.moreless

      Donatello has created a device to communicate with distant galaxies. While trying to communicate with the Turtle Nebula (a cloud of stars shaped like a turtle) Donatello accidentally brings a spaceship to Earth. The craft lands next to him, on the top of the Channel Six building. Out of the spaceship comes an alien lizard named Algernon. Algernon tells Donatello that his broadcast brought him to Earth and damaged his ship's drive. Algernon insists that Donatello now fix it.

      Meanwhile, the other Turtles are watching one of April's broadcasts on TV. She is doing a story on Hiram Grelch, a greedy businessman who is trying to take over all the TV stations in the area. In the middle of her broadcast, Grelch's hoods show up and kidnap April. Donatello and Algernon see this and rush to her aid, but the hoods get away and bring April to Grelch's penthouse. When Donatello and Algernon arrive at Grelch's penthouse they discover that he has a force field around it and they can't get in. The duo head back to Channel Six to get a laser cannon from Algernon's ship to blast through the force field. To their surprise, they discover that Grelch has stolen the spaceship.

      After April's disappearance on TV, the other Turtles set out to look for her. After having no luck, the lads decide to see if there is any news on April's disappearance on the television. The three TMNT are surprised to find Donatello on the air! Donny has come up with a plan to hopefully free April and get Algernon's ship back. He has Algernon change himself into a ferocious alien from the Turtle Nebula demanding his ship back. If it is not returned, the transmogrified alien will create interplanetary war!

The broadcasts makes it appear that Earth is being invaded and Grelch decides to surrender. While Grelch is panicking from the "so called invasion," Algernon and Donatello manage to get in under the force field and shut the power off to the building. The other Turtles arrive in the Turlte Blimp, battle Grelch and his thugs and free April.

      Donatello finally discovers that the only thing that will fix Algernon's ship is pizza. After taking some pizza from Michaelangelo, he waves good bye to the Turtles and returns home.moreless

      9.3
      Donatello goes down to Channel Six News to give Vernon a piece of his mind after he had made disparaging comments about Turtles on live TV. On his way, Don runs into Slash, the evil turtle from Dimension X. This time Slash is smarter, stronger and has more technologically advanced weaponry... so he starts kicking Donatello's butt. For some reason, Slash intends to be the supreme turtle in this town. After dispatching Donatello, Slash sets off in search for the other three TMNT. But first he wants to go to Channel Six to get some equipment he will need to complete his "Trans-Frequency Fluxorlator."

      After contacting Donatello on the TurtleCom and rescuing him from under a pile of steel girders, Raphael, Leonardo and Michaelangelo have a good laugh when they learn that this was Slash's doing. They remember him to be as thick as a brick and as dumb as mud. But the skeptical Turtles are finally convinced when they track Slash down at the Channel Six News Building and the nasty mutant turtle delightfully tells them the story of how he became the genius that he is now. It seems that while he was drifting through space he happened to crash land on an alien world inhabited by a race of hyper-intelligent beings. They took pity on his sub-par IQ and increased his intelligence beyond the wildest dream of mere mortals.

      From that moment on he was a turtle with a mission - to return to Earth and become the supreme turtle and "turtleize" the entire planet by using his Animalizer Ray and turning every human being into a turtle. To prove that he is "as serious as a heart attack" Slash demonstrates the Animalizer Ray on Vernon and Burne, and presto, they become turtles! After putting the Turtles "on ice" Slash climbs to the roof of Channel Six to prepare his entrance into the world domination. Before he can utilize the new Channel Six High Frequency antenna, the Turtles foil him. After a minor skirmish high above the city streets, Slash falls and is impacted into pavement. When the Turtles revive him, he is his old dumb self.moreless

      Mr. Thompson orders April into his office to assign her a news story.

She assures him that he is not and heads off to Cybertech Lab with mini-cam in hand. Meanwhile, down in the Turtles' Lair, Donatello is displaying his new Super Pizza Maker. The other Turtles are impressed with its ability to make pizza in a matter of seconds, but when it is switched into high gear -- the machine overloads and explodes, causing loose parts to scatter across the room. One of these "loose screws" hits Leonardo, causing "just a bruise." Suddenly, April contacts them from Cybertech Labs, via the Turtle Com, to inform them that Shredder, Rocksteady and Bebop are up to no good. While she waits for the Turtles to arrive (including Splinter, who is concerned about Leonardo's injury,) April begins to videotape Shredder and his "goons" from the rafters high above the floor. But she is spotted by Shredder, who sends Rocksteady and Bebop up after her.

      In this special, "It's a Wonderful Life"-style story. The Turtles return to their lair, triumphant after another mission, but they are frustrated that they let Shredder slip away from them again.
      They feel like giving up, and wish they had never been born -- wishing that they never had to bear the burden of fighting crime. They go to sleep still thinking these thoughts.
      When they wake up, however, they find things have drastically changed. The lair is gone, Splinter doesn't exist, and New York is now known as "Shredderville". The Turtles soon realise -- to their horror that their wish has come true, and that they no longer exist!
      Exploring this strange, warped Earth, the Turtles discover their friends are either slaves (April and Irma), or anarchists (Zach)
      They also find out Shredder is a man tired of being the big cheese, and frustrated with the responsibility that comes with his position.
      Just when things couldn't get any worse, the Technodrome (now more of a broken-down relic than a war machine) is on the verge of exploding. If it goes boom, that can only spell doom! Can the green machine escape this nightmare?

      Raphael's ego is bruised when the other Turtles refuse to take him seriously when he informs them that he is taking a correspondence class in the art of disguise, so he challenges his brothers to go to Central Park and pick him out of a crowd. If they can-- they all get free pizza. This is an offer that Michaelangelo, Leonardo and Donatello cannot refuse.

      Raphael goes to the nearest Post Office, grabs a wanted poster, and makes up his face to appear as none other than Mad Dog McMutt and heads for the park. What Raphel does not know is that the real Mad Dog is taking a walk in the very same park and, after an encounter with a stray dog over a bone, is knocked unconscious and left hidden in the bushes.

      Meanwhile, April fears that her job is on the line and that she must find a news story by the end of the day or find a new job. When she sees Mad Dog McMutt strolling through the park she sees a golden opportunity. She convinces Irma to go with her as they attempt to follow McMutt.

      The other three Turtles, who have been following Raphael, enter the park, find the McMutt wanted poster and realize that Raphel is disguised as the notorious crime figure. But elsewhere in the park, McMutt's thugs encounter Raphael as McMutt and take him back to their hideout so they can commit the "caper of the century" with April and Irma following close behind.

      A few minutes later, the other three Turtles find the real McMutt who they believe to be Raphael -- only he has lost him memory and cannot remember who he is. The Turtles convince him that he is Raphael until he is attacked by the same stray dog, knocked down and regains his memory. McMutt pretends to be Raphael until he learns that the real Raphael is impersonating him and that his thugs believe that Raphael is McMutt.

      Meanwhile, April and Irma have been caught by McMutt's thugs when they break into McMutt's hideout. Raphael reveals his true identity to them but his ruse is soon discovered when the real McMutt shows up. April, Irma and Raphael are taken along for the ride when McMutt and his thugs "commit the crime of the century" which is literally stealing the Museum of Natural History -- it seems that McMutt has a thing for bones -- especially dinosaur bones. His plans go awry when Irma and April get peeved enough to take on McMutt himself. And thanks to April and her video camera, Burne Thompson renews her contract at Channel Six News.moreless

Dregg employees Medusa to eliminate the Turtles for him. So while Medusa lures the Turtles into a fight at the hydroelectric plant, Hi-Tech successfully leads the Technogangsters back to the Neutronium mine, where they are free to continue their work. Back at the plant, the mutant Carter nearly destroys the dam (which would have caused the loss of thousands of lives) and in the confusion, Medusa captures Leonardo. It seems that she intends to sell him and the other Turtles into slave labor in another part of the galaxy. Carter, now back to his normal self, blames himself for Leonardo's disappearance. He realizes he needs to spend more time training with Splinter to learn to control his mutation. The Turtles accept Medusa's "invitation" to meet her at the World Broadcast Tower to rescue Leonardo, only to find that they have been duped. During their battle the Turtles experience a full-blown mutation - which scares Medusa and she retreats. Meanwhile, Dregg volunteers to repair the crippled SkySat Space Station, which has been orbiting the Earth powerless. Little do the Earthlings know that he intends to install his Stasis Relay System to fulfill his destiny to become the supreme ruler of the world!

      Believing that Shredder and Krang have taken over the Hall of Science, now that Berserko is out of commission, the Turtles set out to investigate, only to be repelled by Bebop and Rocksteady. April was able to capture the battle on tape, but she is afraid that it will not convince Burne of the Turtles' innocence.

      Meanwhile, Burne has created a hot line for callers to use should they spot those "evil" Turtles... the ones responsible for the destruction of the Channel Six News Building. Inside the Hall of Science, Shredder is fearful that the Turtles will eventually find a way into the building and must be stopped now, at any cost. Krang suggests that Shredder not worry with the equipment that Berserko left behind, as he believes that he will be able to restore communications with the Technodrome (which is still in Dimension X) and have it at their disposal once more. However, Shredder is not convinced and decides to seek out an old friend in the sewers, the Rat KIng.

      Meanwhile, Channel Six continues to run editorials denouncing the Turtles. Raphael is ready to storm down to the new Channel Six Station and "have a chat" with Vernon and Burne. When Donatello suggest that maybe Vernon is right -- maybe the more they try to help, the more they become the problem. The other Turtles cannot believe their ears! How can Donatello be saying this! But before they finish their debate, the Rat King breaks into the lair with laser guns blasting. Believing that he has dispatched the Turtles to the hereafter, the rodent liege seeks to obtain his reward from Shredder: a new strain of mutagen!

      Meanwhile, Krang has made contact with General Tragg aboard the Technodrome in Dimension X, and requests that his last and final unused weapon, the Shock Wave, be sent (via the Dimensional Portal) to Krang on Earth. Unfortunately, rather than being teleported to the Hall of Science it is sent into a busy intersection in the City, and now the police have taken custody of it. Krang sends Bebop and Rocksteady out to try and retrieve it, only for them to discover that it is at the Westmore Research Center. Over at the temporary Channel Six News Station, April is unable to convince Burne not to run his expose denouncing the Turtles and threatens to get her own story, proving the Turtles' innocence.

      April returns to the Hall of Science in time to see the Rat King enter. When she contacts the Turtles, they shrug it off and say there is nothing they can do. When Splinter hears this, he threatens to go take care of this menace himself. So, the TMNT join forces with their Sensei. Only when the heroes arrive at the Hall of Science, the last thing they expect to see was giant mutant rats!

      Krang used his new strain of mutagen on the Rat King's pet rats. The Turtles and Splinter retreat. Shredder, the Rat King, and his giant mutant rats head for the Westmore Research Center with April and her mini-cam in pursuit. The Turtles get Shredder's retro-mutagen ray and they blast the giant mutant rats, which succeeds in cutting them down to size.

      Meanwhile, April is reporting Public Service Announcements from the local library when spies Rocksteady and Bebop. She immediately contacts the Turtles, who are depressed by the possibility that Master Splinter/Yoshi may never return and jump at the chance to divert their attention.

      Besides, they suspect that Shredder must be nearby. The TMNT head straight for the Library, and sure enough, encounter Shredder and company, who of course, escape. However, they leave a clue behind. It seems that Shredder has stumbled onto a spell that will enable him to open a portal to any dimension he chooses.

      The Turtles find a reference to a temple in an old subway terminal somewhere under the city that acts as a nexus - a point where many dimensions intersect. Now, all they have to do is find it before Shredder does.moreless

      While road testing the Turtle Van with his latest inventions, Donatello encounters a family of hillbillies known as the Badd Family. The Badds are the notorious crime family from the back woods.

      The Badd's family pick-up truck has "given up the ghost", so Donatello, acting as a good samaritan, stops and offers his assistance. The Badds lock the helpful Turtle in the engine compartment of the truck and then steal the Turtle Van and have fun with the many "contraptions" that Donatello has installed in/on it.

      Back at the Turtles' lair, Donatello is afraid to tell the other Turtles about the theft of the Turtle Van. Don-san pretends to be working on the vehicle while he is actually working on the hillbilly's truck. Meanwhile, the other Turtles are desperate for the use of the van so that they can aid in the capture of the "Heisitng Hillbillies".

      Meanwhile, April and Irma, who are investigating the Badd Family themselves, do an interview with Dr. Kepple at the Kepple Research Laboratory. Dr. Kepple tells the reporters about his invention the "Powersizer", a device that can provide more energy than the Sun. However, Kepple reveals that the machine could be very destructive if it should fall into the wrong hands. And what powers The Powersizer? A giant diamond of course!

      And guess who was watching April and Irma's newscast while driving the Turtle Van? You guessed it -- the Badd Family, who arrive just in time to steal the diamond and the Powersizer while April and Irma are doing their live report.

      Meanwhile, Michaelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael are walking the city streets in search of the Badd Family. The 3 mutants are grumbling about Donatello's strange behavior when they are almost run down by the Turtle Van.

      After April informs them of the theft of the diamond by the Badd family in the Turtle Van, the remaining three Turtles are convinced that Donatello is in "cahoots" with the Badd Family. April also warns them that if the Badd Family turns on The Powersizer without calibrating it correctly, it will drain the city of all its power, causing an overload that will make the City go BOOM!

      And of course, the Badds do turn it on when they try to dislodge the diamond from The Powersizer and the City's power begins to drain. The Badds see this as a plus as it will enable them to rob banks without burglar alrams being set off.

      Finally, Donatello tracks the Turtle Van and falls victim to his own inventions as he follows the Badd Family all over the City. Fortunately, he came prepared -- he rigged the Badd's pick up truck with some inventions that couteract the ones he invented for the Turtles' van.

      In the end, Donatello and the other Turtles apprehend the Badds and the Powersizer is turned off before the city is destroyed.moreless

      Once again, Dregg broadcasts his message to the citizens of Earth about the evil mutant Turtles and, once again, the Turtles are ticked off. In fact, the TMNT are so ticked off that they mutate on the spot and, in broad daylight, attack a squad of TechnoGangsters, scaring the local citizenry. This of course confirms the citizens' worst fears about the Turtles as promoted by Dregg. Back at the lair, after the fight scene and the escape scene, the Turtles complain about their inability to control their mutations. Splinter suggests that it is because they are unable to control their "deepest rage" and that they may have to "sacrifice more than they can possibly imagine" in order to finally defeat Dregg. Meanwhile in outer space onboard the Dreggnaught, an ALIEN SCOUT delivers the Vortex Crystal(which has the power to warp space itself) to Dregg. The alien crimelord is pleased, for with the power of this crystal, he will be able to bring his entire armada (which has been scattered across the galaxies) together and lay siege to planet Earth -- that is until the Alien Scout informs him that there is another who seeks the Vortex Crystal - DOOMQUEST! Dregg realizes that he must act quickly and perpetrates one last deception upon the Earthlings. But during the ceremony where Dregg "gifts" the Vortex Crystal to the Mayor as a source of unlimited clean energy, the sky darkens - Doomquest and his partner-in-crime, DRACONUS, have arrived and attempt to take possession of the Crystal. Fortunately, the Turtles have been spying on the proceedings and manage to get to it first. So while Doomquest captures Dregg, Draconus (aboard his Hover-Chariot) searches the City for the Crystal. April goes off to find a new mini-cam (hers was destroyed in the fire fight), the the Turtles and Carter attempt to analyze the "rock". Unfortunately for the Turtles, it doesn't take long for Draconus to track them down and take possession of the Crystal. However, the one thing they were able to learn about it was that they were unable to mutate in its presence. Back at Doomquest's Ship, the Crystal is activated and within minutes, "Dimensional Rifts" are opening up all over the City and releasing ALIEN MONSTERS. It seems that Doomquest's "quest" is to release his world (DARKREALM) which has been imprisoned in another dimension for centuries. The TMNT decide that they must get that Crystal and close all the vortexes before it is too late for the Earth as well as themselves. It seems that their mutations are causing them to turn on each other, which is very counterproductive. The Turtles arrive just as Dregg and Hi-Tech have escaped from their imprisonment and a battle royale ensues - everybody wants the Vortex Crystal. Carter manages to get it first with the help of the Turtles (who are willing to sacrifice the possibility of killing each other when they lose possession of the Crystal). The vortexes are closed and Doomquest is sucked back into the Darkrealm. That still leaves Dregg to contend with, but he is finally "outgunned" and decides to leave Earth for good. Meanwhile, April was able to get everything on video tape, broadcast it across the City and convince the humans that the TMNT are the real heroes.moreless

      9.1
      While the Turtles do battle with a refrigerator that has not been defrosted lately, Rocksteady and Bebop decide that they want to be the "top mutants" at the Technodrome and throw out a vat of mutagen onto the frozen tundra, creating a giant Ice Creature.

      The Ice Creature goes wild and starts to destroy the Technodrome. The Shredder fires a series of missiles at the Ice Creature and one embeds itself into the Ice Creature's hand.

      Bebop "pulls a thorn from the lion's paw" and the Ice Creature follows Bebop's orders. Shredder suggests that Bebop order the Ice Creature to dislodge the Technodrome-- when that fails he decides that Bebop should take his new friend to The City and retrieve a new thermo explosive device being developed at a nearby Defense Base.

      Rocksteady, Bebop and the Ice Creature arrive in The City and are greeted by the waiting Turtles. However, they are no match for the creature that Bebop calls "Frosty".

      While Rocksteady and Bebop take a break (they are busy building snowmen of The Shredder and Krang and then knocking them down) from searching for the thermo explosives, "Frosty" turns all the buldings into blocks of ice -- including the Channel Six News Building where April, Irma, Vernon and Burne are busy preparing for the five o'clock news.

      The Shredder arrives just as Rocksteady and Bebop locate the thermo explosives. They load them into the Transport Module and head back to the Technodrome, leaving a very lonely and angry Ice Creature behind.

      The Turtles lure the Ice Creature over to a nearby rocket ship and ignite it. The Rocket ship is launched into the startosphere where the Ice Creature riding it like a runaway horse.

      Meanwhile, The Shredder is successful in his effort to dislodge the Technodrome with the thermo explosives. But no sooner is it free from the Artic's frozen grasp, then the rocket ship crashes into the tundra, and the Ice Creature, now melting from the intense heat of the rocket ship, blocks the way of the Technodrome.

      The Ice Creature melts and then freezes, thereby making the Technodrome a prisoner once again.moreless

      Season 5 - Episode 14

      9.1
      A series of baffling crimes are being committed by "brawny burglars" with thick Austrian/Schwarzeneggian accents and the Turtles are on the case. But so is Casey Jones and that could mean nothing but trouble for the Turtles. It seems that Casey Jones is just too much of a gung ho vigilate for the Turtles taste.

      However, the Turtles are no match for the "muscle-bound miscreants." They decide that they will have to fight fire with fire -- by "pumping up." With that no sooner said, then April calls them on their Turtle Com to tell them a crate was delivered to them at Channel Six -- it is a weight lifting machine from Wally Airhead. The same Wally Airhead who owns the gym around town and is the employer of the "pumped-up" creeps who whipped their butts.

      Back at the lair, Leonardo refuses to participate. He believes that honing his ninja skills will enable him to defeat their enemies. He leaves the Lair, leaving the remaining three Turtles to "just do it."

      Suddenly, the weight-lifting machine imprisons them and becomes mobile - delivering them to none other than Wally Airhead himself.

      When Leonardo returns, he discovers that his brothers and the weight lifting machine are gone. Splinter suggests that he recruit Casey Jones in his effort to locate his missing brothers. Leonardo reluctantly complies.

      Back at Wally Airhead's "House of Pecs," Wally is surprised to see only three Turtles rather than four. It seems that Wally is not just a weight lifter but a scientist as well -- he has built a machine that emanates a ray that he calls "Strongium 90." This machine provides Wally and his men with their strength. And it also seems that he wants to capture the "essence" of the Turtles" strength, bottle it and mass market it.

      After Leonardo contacts Casey Jones, he convinces him to join Wally's gym in an effort to find his missing brothers. With that done, Casey and the Turtles discover that Wally and his men are buillding "The Block Buster" a gigantic boxing glove that Wally plans to use to execute the "crime of the century."

      Meanwhile, Donatello has rewired the Strongium 90 machine so that Wally and his men will think that they are "pumped up" enough to commit their crime.

      Wally takes his "block buster" out into the streets and makes his demands: either the City give him $500 million dollars in cash or he will demolish every building in the city, starting with the Supreme Court.

      However, Donatello's plan kicks in and Wally and his men revert back to the wimps they really are, allowing Casey and the Turtles to kick their butts with the greatest of ease.moreless
    • The Starchild

      9.1
      While rummaging through the local junkyard for parts that might be useful to Donatello's penchant for building whacky inventions, the Turtles witness the crash landing of an alien spacecraft. After a debate as to whether or not they should investigate, they go inside and encounter an alien kid named Quarx.

      Meanwhile, in another part of the junkyard, another alien spacecraft descends. Drako, a star trooper, emerges and reports to his employer that he has located the Starchild. His employer tells him that the "fleet" will be in position in two hours and to "handle the situation" until then.

      Back at Quarx's spacecraft, the Turtles try to learn why the little alien kid is all alone, but Quarx would rather play than talk. And while he begins to play in the garbage, Drako arrives on the scene blasting away.

      The Turtles successfully, but only temporarily, restrain him long enough for Drako to tell them that the Starchild is the "most dangerous being" in the universe.

      Back at the lair, the Turtles discover that Quarx possesses telekinetic powers as he demonstrates them, first with Michaelangelo's Bugman toys, and then with Splinter's collection of ninja weapons - the ones with sharp blades.

      This action does not sit well with the Turtles and they try to impart some parental authority, which of course only serves to bother the little alien, who insists that all the wants to do is play. He then runs off telling the Turtles that he does not have to listen to them - they are not his fathers.

      While the Turtles try to track Quarx down, as he wreaks havoc all over town, Splinter decides to pay a visit to his spacecraft in hopes of learning more about the celestial traveler.

      Meanwhile, Drako has returned with reinforcements, determined to "nail that Starchild." After being thwarted once again, Drako implores with the Turtles that they must let him "find the Starchild or their whole planet could be obliterated." But still the Turtles refuse.

      Moments before the end of act two, Donatello announces the prescence of thousands of alien spacecraft orbiting the glove. Drako's employer leads this armada and he demands that the Turtles turn over the Starchild within thirty minutes or they will destroy Earth. And once again the Turtle refuse.

      Drako explains to the Turtles that they wish no harm to the Turtles or their planet, but that the Starchild is very dangerous and that he has destroyed many worlds in the last two centuries. The survivors of these worlds have banded together to hunt the Starchild down to prevent him from destroying another innocent civilizations.

      The Turtles are confused. How can the Starchild still be a kid after two centuries. Drako explains that the Starchild is very powerful and can be whatever it wants to be.

      Back at Quarx's spacecraft, Splinter locates a video journal recorded by Quarx's father, Merrick. Merrick's journal details a civil war on his planet and the powers that he bestowed upon his son to end the war. However, Merrick's planet was destroyed before Quarx could learn about his father's gift to him and has "refused" to grow up without his father's permission.

      Meanwhile, Drako has decided that not only does he want Quarx, but more importantly, he wants Quarx's power so that he can rule the Universe. He will not let the Turtles prevent him from having it.

      After a failed attempt to take possession of Quarx and his power, the Starchild gets really angry and is about to use his power to destroy everything around him - that is until he hears his "father's" voice.

      Using his ninjitsu mind powers, and a clever disguise, to "transform" himself into Merrick, Splinter tells Quarx, in a fatherly way to grow up and use his power to end war and create peace among the galaxies. And lo and behold, Quarx evolves into an adult, repairs all the damage he has caused on Earth and promises to make amends throughout the galaxy.moreless

      9.1
      Michaelangelo awakes in the middle of the night from a bad dream. Unable to remember what it was about, Splinter assists him through hypnotism. Mikey vividly recalls the day that he and his brothers fell into the sewer and landed in the green ooze but he also sees a small lizard crawling through the contaminant and then something picks up the lizard and carries it away. That is all the Michaelangelo can remember. Splinter advises the Turtles to go back to sleep as he returns to his own bed chamber.

      Unable to sleep, Michaelangelo ventures down into the sewers, trying to locate the tunnel from his dreams. No sooner does he find it, then a burglar alarm sounds from above the streets and he "beats feet."

      Up on the street, Michaelangelo encounters three punks running away from the Second City Bank with bags of money. He tries to stop them, but is less than successful. On his way back through the sewers, Mikey is run down by one of the bank robbers riding a skateboard. Michaleangelo chases the bandit into a dead-end, only to discover that the punk is a mutant known as Mondo Gecko. Something about Mondo is very familiar to Michaelangelo. But before the puzzled Turtle can decipher it all, Mondo Gecko strings him up like fresh meat and leaves him hanging while he makes his escape.

      An embarrased Michaelangelo manages to untie himself and proceeds to follow the mutated lizard. Mondo Gecko's skateboard tracks lead him to an abandoned warehouse where Michaelangelo overhears Mondo Gecko and the other two punks, Basher and Sluggo. The robbers are getting their crime orders to hijack an Army truck carrying a top secret explosive from a voice identified only as Mr. X.

      Michaelangelo attempts to stop Gecko but once again finds himself in another embarrasing situation. Mikey is once again captured. Basher and Sluggo want to feed him to the sharks but Mondo Gecko decides that they should take him to Mr. X and let him decide what to do with him.

      Afther the hijacking, Michaelangelo attempts to contact the other Turtles via his TurtleCom, but before he can give his exact location, Basher destroys it. Immediately afterwards, April contacts the Turtles with news of the same hijacking.

      At Mr. X's hideout, Mondo Gecko goes inside to deliver the top secret explosive and instructs Basher and Sluggo to watch the truck and the Turtle. They do -- only they watch it go over a 1,000 foot cliff. Mondo Gecko returns in time to save Michaelangelo's life but, he doesn't know why.

      Mondo delivers him to Mr. X who has just finished blackmailing the Army for the return of the top secret explosive -- if they do not deliver $5 billion in seven minutes he will set off the bomb.

      Michaelangelo realizes that Mr. X was the guy in his dreams. Mr. X realizing that Michaelangelo knows too much, orders Mondo Gecko to "finish him off." When Mr. X leaves the room, Michaelangelo fools Mondo Gecko with Splinter's pendant and hypnotizes him. Mondo tells his life story of how he remembers being in a dark sewer with some turtles crawling around in some green ooze and how some guy picked him up and took him back to his place where he taught him everything he knows about being a criminal.

      Michaelangelo has heard enough. He snaps Mondo Gecko out of his trance and tells him that he is not bad -- that Mr. X made him that way. Mikey goes on to tell Mondo that they came from the same sewers and that they were born to be "best buds", not enemies.

      Mr. X re-enters the room to discover Michaelango still alive. He now orders Basher and Sluggo to finish the job. Mondo Gecko protects Michaelangelo and causes the two incompetent punks to knock the top secret explosive off of the desk, which activatea the timer.

      As Mr. X is about to do the job himself, the other three Turtles arrive and save the day. Mondo Gecko ends his life of crime and moves into the sewers where he becomes "neighbors" to the Turtles and Master Splinter.moreless

Krang informs Shredder of the instability of the magnet, and warns him not to overload it, but he is all but ignored by his partner.
      The Turtles soon learn of Shredder's scheme, and, after managing to acquire a pair of gravity boots, are able to fend off the invading foot soldiers. Donatello notices that the birds are still flying, since they aren't bound by the laws of gravity, the magnet's power doesn't affect them, Donatello suggests to his bros that they head for the Turtle Blimp.
      Angered by the Turtle's defiance, Shredder vows that if he can't own the city, he'll destroy it, by thrusting it completely off the planet!

After rescuing April and Irma from taking off with the channel six building, Donatello figures out how to prevent the magnet from destroying New York, he uses channel six's main satellite dish to bounce the magnet's energy transmissions right back to it's source.
      But at the same time this is attempted, Krang decides to take manners into his own hand and turns up the juice even further, the result of both the turtle's reversal of the energy flow and krang's increase of the flow results in the anti-gravity magnet being pulled out of the ground and ejected into space itself, but in route to outer orbit, the magnet knocks into the turtle blimp and causes Raphael to drop the satellite, it smashes to pieces on the ground below.
      Gravity returns to normal, and New York's structures and citizens, quickly fall back to earth, the Turtles confront Shredder, but the villain escapes in a transport module.

The Turtles lamely suggest that with Shredder out of the way (it seems he and Krang were sent to the Earth's core in a previous episode), they deserve a vacation. Splinter suggests that they have no proof that Shredder and Krang are "vanquished" and that there is still plenty of other crime/criminals to be fought.
      Meanwhile, miles below the Earth's surface, rests the Technodrome. Inside, Shredder "whines" to Krang about when they will take the Technodrome to the surface. Krang tells Shredder that they are low on power and that certain essential equipment (i.e. the Protein Silicon Brain Computer) has been damaged, thanks to Shredder's incompetence. But Krang reassures him that they can be repaired but it will require a trip to the surface to obtain the necessary parts.

      The City Mayor announces an end to crime when he introduces Professor Mindbender and his latest invention: LEX, a robotic police officer. In no time, LEX rids the streets of crime. So much so, that the Turtles decide to take a vacation and leave The City, all save for Leonardo who fears that there may be some things that LEX can not handle.

      Now with all the major criminals behind bars, Professor Mindbender makes some adjustments to LEX so that he can now pursue small time petty criminals. And his first arrest is of Leonardo and April for jaywalking. However, when LEX is called away for another arrest, April and Leonardo take flight and become wanted fugitives. Back at the Turtles' Lair, Leonardo unsuccessfully attempts to contact the other Turtles. But he finds a piece of Donatello's equipment that gives him an idea: find REX-1, their old friend the robotic cop. However, REX-1 is malfunctioning and can not remember who he is. Thanks to April's old news reports, REX-1 is back up to speed. And just in time -- because LEX has arrived to arrest them all. REX-1 attempts to protect his old friends but LEX zap him with a ray that deprograms and reprograms REX-1 to follow his orders. REX-1 attacks Leonardo and April who barely make good their escape.

      Meanwhile, the other Turtles, after getting Leonardo's message, return to The City to find Professor Mindbender in charge and the populace in a panic. By the time they find Leonardo and April, everything is under control -- it seems that LEX turned on his inventor when he arrested Professor Mindbender for having scuffed shoes.moreless

      Donatello tells the other three Turtles that based on his calculations, the Earth has changed its orbit and is heading for the Sun. Mikey, Leo and Raph think that Don has been working too hard and force him to watch a movie with them. But when that movie turns out to be The Day the Earth Collided with the Sun, Donatello goes ballistic and says that he has to find a way to save the planet.

      Meanwhile, Vernon's genius nephew, Foster, is in town for his junior high school's science fair. Vernon tries to impress the boy at Channel Six News, but like everyone else in Vernon's universe, Foster sees through him like a sheet of glass. Back at the lair, despite the fact that the termperataure is rising, no one believes Donatello when he tells them "that the sky is falling." Over at Channel Six, Vernon makes one last vain attempt to impress his nephew by pleading with April to ask the Turtles if they would meet Foster at the National Junior High Schol Science Fair Competition. The TMNT reluctantly agree and arrive to witness Foster's invention, the Solar Magnet.

      Donatello was right! The Earth is orbiting closer to the sun and Foster is responsible! Foster says that he plans to leave it on until after he wins first prize. Donatello destroys Foster's invention. Not to worry though, Foster is a genius and he is able to put it back together in time for the competition. Meanwhile, some how or another, the evil scientist, Professor Philo Sofo, learns of Foster's Solar Magnet and steals it prior to Foster's unveiling, to put his, as he says, "evil plan into action." Of course, everyone assumes that Donatello is responsible but he professes his innocence. In fact, he wishes that he had stolen it, because if it should fall into the wrong hands it could mean "the end of the world."

      Suddenly, the image of Professor Philo Sofo appears on the television screen and announces his evil plan. It seems that while he is safe inside his underground bunker, the rest of the world is about to become toast. Afterwards, when there is no one left alive, he will become the undisputed ruler of the planet. With few clues to go on, and only twelve hours before the "end of the world as we know it," the Turtles race over to Sofo University. Along the way, they pick up Vernon and Foster. The Turtles thank Foster for having a change of heart by agreeing to help them dismantle the Solar Magnet, but Foster informs them that he is merely along to meet his hero - Professor Sofo. When they arrive at Sofo University -- it is deserted and apparently has been for some time. Before they leave, they find an important clue that leads them back to the city and under the Central City Park. With only minutes to spare, the Turtles, along with Foster, foil Professor Sofo's evil plan, and destroy the Solar Magnet.moreless

The malevolent millionaire figures that if he can get the citizens under his control, he can easily take over the city.

      Krang sees April's news report about the contest and gets an idea on how he can use the diamond to get out of Dimension X.

He ends his missive by introducing Dirk Savage, a mutant hunter, and announcing an 800 number for viewers to call in their mutant sightings and order their "Down with Mutants" bracelets. Dirk Savage's first victims are Napolean Bonafrog and Ghengis Frog, the Turtles' buddies from the Everglades, and the hapless victims of bad vacation planning. Back at the lair, Splinter suggests that while Dirk Savage is their greatest enemy, he may well be their greatest ally. It is up to the Turtles to demonstrate that not all mutants are evil.

      After Leonardo and Michaelangelo are captured by Dirk Savage, Donatello and Raphael are contacted by April and Irma. It seems that A.J. Howard at one time owned a Genetics Lab and disappeared for one year after it was abruptly shut down. What does it mean? The Turtles are about to find out. Donatello and Raphael contact Mondo Gecko and convince him to act as a decoy, and allow himself to be captured by Dirk Savage. Mondo Gecko does not hesitate to agree, as Donatello plans a homing device on him and sends him out on the street. Sure enough no sooner has Dirk captured Toka, then he captures Mondo Gecko, and drops them off at A.J. Howard's secret hideout, where Howard reveals that he does not want to destroy the mutants...he wants them to serve as his troops. Unbeknownst to Dirk Savage, A.J. Howard is a mutant himself. Now he wants to take over the human race.

The only problem is that urban crime is decreasing...or so she thought until she had her Channel Six van stolen right from under her nose! Meanwhile, ever the grump and even more so on his birthday, Raphael accidentally blasts himself with one of Donatello's many inventions while ironing his laundry. Whatever this device is, it has turned the usual foul-mooded Raphael into a charming, friendly, always-willing-to-lend-a-hand Turtle.

      The other guys are confused by Raphael's sudden change of attitude, but are reluctant to look a gift horse in the mouth. Over at the Crosstown bank, the stolen Channel Six News van crashes through the front doors, and Max, a typical cartoon punk and his partner in crime, Iggy, make an early withdrawal.

      As chance would have it, the Turtles are out on a pizza run and happen to be near the Crosstown Bank as it is being robbed, and while Leonardo, Donatello, and Michaelangelo are trying to thwart the bank robbers, Raphael is actually helping them! After a series of misadventures during the apprehension of the bank robbers, the other three Turtles agree that perhaps Raphael needs to see a psychiatrist. So the TMNT send the good-natured Raph off to the Von Shrink Institute of Mental Health, where Dr. Otto Von Shrink himself personally treats him.

      Dr. Von Shrink regresses Raphael back to the time he first became "Mr. Nice Guy". Dr. Von Shrink learns of Donatello's Personality Alterator. The quack realizes that he could make millions from Don's gadget and also get revenge on the psychiatric community, so he asks the ever obliging Raphael to bring it to him.

      Back at the lair, Donatello accidentally discovers why Raphael is all smiles, but as he shares this bit of news with Leonardo and Michaelangelo, Raphael exits the lair with the Personality Alterator. Later that night, after a series of rash crimes are committed all over the city. All of the eyewitnesses described the perpetrators as "nice guys", so the Turtles realize that someone is using the Personality Alterator for nefarious gains. It does not take them long to put Raphael, the Personality Alterator, and Dr. Von Shrink together before they hustle over to the Von Shrink Institute of Mental health where they are immediately trapped in Dr. Von Shrink's Phobia Chamber, a place where they must battle their worst nightmares!

      Unable to convince Raphael that Dr. Von Shrink really is a bad guy, Donatello is able to use his Bo to throw the switch on the Personality Alterator from "very nice" to "very nasty" and we witness Raphael being zapped again. Now that he is back to his old self, he stops being Mr. Nice Guy. Raphael turns the Personality Alterator ray on Dr. Von Shrink, who immediately becomes a mild mannered therapist.moreless

Somehow some way, they have to prove to the world that Dregg is evil. But they are unable to get inside his new building and dig up any dirt. Meanwhile, Carter, wanting desperately to prove his worth to the Turtles, makes a bogus deal with Dregg to deliver the Turtles to him. Dregg readily accepts. Only Carter neglects to inform the Turtles of this deal, and they most definitely feel betrayed when they are captured by Hi-Tech and his TechnoGangsters and delivered to the Dreggnaught. And to make matters worse, while the Turtles are strapped to steel slabs in Dregg's Power Chamber and are busily trying to free themselves - something happens. They momentarily and uncontrollably begin to mutate. But before the Turtles can dwell on the preview of their future, Carter arrives to rescue them. After Carter convinces the TMNT that this was all part of his plan to get the Turtles inside the Dregg Tower (seeing as how they couldn't by themselves), they embark on their mission to shut down Dregg. But during the middle of the climactic third act fight, Carter mutates, only this time the Turtles are able to witness it and April gets it all on tape. With Dregg temporarily defeated once again, the Turtles and Carter return to the lair.

After evading numerous traps rigged by the Phantom, the Turtles are able to successfully close the floodgates... but they still haven't found the Phantom. While investigating the area, the Turtles find an elevator under the foundation of a building that leads them up inside the theater, where they encounter Rufus Higby. He still denies the existence of the Phantom. The Turtles rush over to Channel Six. April has been busy reporting on the break-ins of over forty banks city wide. In each break in, someone or something literally ripped the vault doors off their hinges. The Turtles decide they should enter the investigation as well.

      Over at the Cityville Bank, one of the few banks that was not robbed the night before, the Turtles stand guard. But not for long, because they are about to encounter whatever was strong enough to rip through six inches of solid steel -- The Willie Wombat Pizza Pan Theater Robots!! April contacts the Turtles via the TurtleCom to inform them that Rufus Higby had a partner named Bogart Flywheel who invented and designed all the robots. After a fall out with Higby three months ago, Flywheel vanished without a trace. The Turtles are now convinced that The Phantom/Bogart Flywheel is behind all the bank robberies and head back into the sewers to find him.

      Once they encounter the Phantom, and hear a tale of woe, the mutant lads soon realize that he is not responsible for the robberies, but rather his ex-partner Rufus Higby is. After a battle, which destroys all of Bogart Flywheel's "children" and causes the theater to fall into the sewers below, the Phantom discovers that his face is not hideously disfigured after all and he can resume a normal life.moreless
    • Return of the Turtleoid
      Season 6 - Episode 4

      The TMNT are convinced that every time April covers the unveiling of some new invention, Shredder always happens to see the same televised report and shows up to try and steal it. This time, the Turtles think they can cut Shredder off at the pass by scurrying over to the Top Notch Scientific Corporation and standing guard over the SONIC DISINTEGRATOR - a device that can turn metal into powder.

      Big Louie and his henchmen break into the lab. Big Louie escapes leaving his henchmen behind to spill the beans. It seems that he had seen April's newscast and decided that the Sonic Disintegrator was just the right tool for robbing banks. Meanwhile, across town, a UFO streaks across the sky and crashes. As innocent bystanders look on, a Killer Robot, known as Destructor X, emerges...

      When the Turtles hear about the robbery they set out to investigate, convinced that Shredder and Krang are behind it. While searching they come upon Kerma, the Turtleoid from Shell-Ri-La. It seems that the Turtleoid has another "small problem," Destructor X. After getting their butts kicked, Kerma and the Turtles are able to escape when they discover that bright light interferes with Destructor X's sensor functions.

      Hiding out at Channel Six, Kerma explains that Destructor X is a law enforcement drone, programmed to hunt down criminals. Due to a clerical error, Destructor X is hunting for Kerma rather than the space villain known as Nerma. Big Louie learns that the Turtles are at Channel Six. But no sooner does he arrive, then so does Destructor X. During the course of the battle, Big Louie discovers Kerma's portable gold making machine, decides that it is worth more than the Sonic Disintegrator and leaves with it.

      Meanwhile, the Turtles are running out of light to keep Destructor X away so they leave also. Halfway to who-knows-where, Kerma explains his new "small problem" and the Turtles decide to take Kerma to April's apartment. After enlisting Splinter to help watch after Kerma, Donatello and Michaelangelo head for the Top Notch Scientific Corporation to "borrow" the Sonic Disintegrator, believing that it is the only thing that will stop Destructor X, while Leonardo and Raphael hunt down Big Louie and retrieve Kerma's portable gold making machine.

      As soon as the four Turtles arrive in April's apartment Destructor X shows up as well. Splinter and April do everything that they can to protect Kerma. When things start to look hopeless, the Turtles arrive and use the Sonic Disintegrator, turning Destructor X into metal powder. The TMNT are then able to revive Kerma with the reflected light of his gold. Kerma once again thanks the Turtles for helping him out with his "small problem", boards his rocket ship and heads back to Shell-Ri-La.moreless
    • Enter: Krakus (3)
      Season 8 - Episode 6
      10/22/94
      9.0
      While surveying the military base where the Flux Transformer is being housed, knowing that it can warp time and space, the Turtles ponder as to what Titanus would want with it. Suddenly, they notice assorted military personnel loading it onto a truck and leaving the base. The Turtles need to know where it is going in order to prevent Titanus from getting his hands on it, so April elects to follow it while the Turtles opt to rid the streets of the H.A.V.O.C. mutants. That is until Krakus, a cop from the future, arrives and thinking that the Turtles are in league with Titanus, shakes them down for information.

      Meanwhile, April continues to track the Flux Transformer as it is off-loaded from the military Truck onto a train, and then in the "middle of nowhere", it is air-lifted onto a helicopter. After April contacts them with the bad news, the TMNT decide to break into the Government Computer Center and access the files pertaining to the Flux Transformer -- maybe they will learn where it has been taken. Unfortunately, they set off the alarms and before they can make good their escape, Krakus reappears and attempts to arrest them. The Turtles get the upper hand and force Krakus to explain to them who he is.

      It seems that Krakus is from the year 2066 and he is pursuing Titanus, who is also from the future where he almost took over the world with his mutants. But he escaped into the past and is now attempting to recreate his future here in the Turtles' present. Suddenly, April arrives with her mini-cam and video tapes the battle between Krakus and the Turtles -- until Krakus, who is stunned to meet her, reveals that in the future she saves his father's life and if it wasn't for her, he would not be alive. After convincing Krakus that the Turtles are the good guys, Krakus apologizes and together they go after Titanus, with Krakus keeping a protective eye on April.

      Back at H.A.V.O.C. Headquarters, Titanus learns the location of the Flux Transformer and sends a squad of mutants to retrieve it, but panics when he learns that Krakus is here in the present. So Titanus dispatches another squad of mutants to take care of the "TimeCop" - resulting in the destruction of Krakus' weapons and the "time machine" and also the kidnapping of April.

      By the time the Turtles and Krakus reunite and storm the H.A.V.O.C. headquarters, Titanus is gone. In his place he left a pre-recorded message outlining his plans for both the Flux Transformer and for April O'Neil. With no weapons, no time machine and no way back home, Krakus has Donatello use Titanus' Mutation Generator to transform him into a giant mutant so that he can save April. She must live to save his father, so that he may be born. After successfully rescuing April, the mutated Krakus and the Turtles stop Titanus from bringing more mutants through his TimeGate into the present, send Titanus back to the prehistoric past, and send Krakus (now reverted back to normal form thanks to a "Duration Timer" on the Mutation Generator) back to the future.moreless

      While Michaelangelo is testing out a sailboard in the sewers, he accidentally gets swept out into the city harbor. At the same time, a captain named Talbot Breech is testing his miniaturizing ray on a ship. His plan is to shrink all the naval ships and put them in bottles for his collection in order to get even with those who turned him down for the Naval Academy.

      The ray gun accidentally shrinks Michaelangelo and he winds up in a bottle along with the other ships in the captain's lab. Breech's cat, Claude, knocks Michaelangelo off the shelf, breaking the bottle and freeing him. He does not realize how small he really is until he comes nose to nose with Claude. Michaelangelo manages to outwit Calude and run away from a huge rat.

      Meanwhile, in the harbor, April and Vernon are covering a story on one of the Navy's aircraft carrier. While April is in the middle of her story, the carrier begins to shrink and disappears right on TV. Donatello, Raphael and Leonardo happen to be watching April's broadcast and see her disappear. Not knowing where Michaelangelo is, they set out to help April without him.

      In the Captain's lab, Michaelangelo finds April and Vernon, who are now shrunk in size like him. April helps Michaelangelo escape in one of the tiny aircrafts. He manages to find the other Turtles on the dock and thye follow him to the Captain's lab.

      At the lab, the Turtles get attacked by Breech's robots, but they are no match for the Turtles. April, Vernon and Michaelangelo get zapped by the ray, turning them back to normal size. The ray also hits all of Breech's boat collection, turning them back to normal size and ruining his lab.moreless

      8.9
      While the Turtles are watching their favorite TV show, Sleuth on the Loose, which stars April's Aunt Agatha, April interrupts the broadcast with a special bulletin about a break-in at Dynamic Science Labs. The Turtles rush over there and agree to guard the remaining objects, which have not been stolen - yet. But somehow, while the Turtles were just outside the room that housed these objects another one disappeared - yet no one had entered the room from outside and the surveillance cameras picked up no one from inside the room. They seemed to have literally disappeared.

      The Turtles agree that maybe they should take the one remaining object back to their lair, where no one knows where it is. Dr. Webb, director of the Dynamic Science Labs, reluctantly agrees, warning them that if it should fall into the thief's hands he could construct something of unspeakable horror. But while the other Turtles are out "beating the bushes" looking for clues, Michaelangelo is responsible for guarding the object. Suddenly the TV set picture scrambles and a light beam emanates from the set, enveloping the object and sucking it back into the TV set.

      When the other three Turtles return, Michaelangelo has to explain that it is gone and to make matters worse, April contacts them and tells them that she has discovered that all the stolen objects put together could make a doomsday device but without the one piece that the Turtles are guarding it is worthless. Without trying to panic, the Turtles try to solve the disappearance in the same way their favorite TV detective, Aunt Agatha, would. Donatello deduces that the thieves used a Molecular Disintegrator beam to teleport the objects across the airwaves. Donatello builds a device that will transport them along the same signal to whoever it was that stole the objects. Only it does not work. In fact, it had the exact opposite result and transported Aunt Agatha from Sleuth on the Loose television show into the Turtles' lair. After explaining the premise of this week's episode, Miss Agatha agrees to lend her services.

      Meanwhile, Professor Von Volt, the man responsible for the thefts from Dynamic Science Labs, is aware that someone is trying to home in on his Molecular Disintegrator beam and tracks the energy surge back to the Turtles' lair. He decides to send his two henchmen, Knuckles and Garth to take care of the interlopers. But along the way, they see Miss Agatha and Raphael enter the Public Library. Being the big fans that they are, they delay their mission in an effort to get Miss Agatha's autograph only to discover that she is already onto their boss. While Miss Agatha and Raphael head over to Channel Six to see April, Knuckles and Garth return back to Professor Von Volt's lab to warn him.

      Using her keen detective skills, Miss Agatha is able to lead the Turtles to Professor Von Volt's hide-out, only to find themselves battling a Destroyer Robot and a Octo-creature just prior to Professor Von Volt activating the Doomsday Device. When it looks like it's curtains for everyone, Miss Agatha pulls a nail from her purse and deactivates the "death machine".moreless

Our heroes decide to bring the millionairess to April's apartment until they can figure out why it is that Shredder wants her so badly.

      Bebop and Rocksteady follow the Turtles to April's apartment and grab Buffy, bringing her to the Technodrome. In the Technodrome, Shredder tries to force the formula out of Buffy, but fails. He shrinks her and tells her that she will stay that way until she gives him what he wants.

      Back on Earth, the Turtles find out from April why Krang and Shredder want Buffy. They realize she is in great danger, but they have no way of helping her because their trans-dimensional portal is not working.

      Buffy finds a way to reach the Turtles from the Technodrome and transports them to Dimension X. Shredder gets one last attempt to get the formula from Buffy by threatening to get rid of the Turtles. She gives in and tells him the formula.

The lads find out that some of Big Louie's gang are responsible for it. The TMNT decide to dress up as hoods to see if they can find out from Big Louie what's going on. Big Louie falls for the Turtles' ruse and tells them that the reason they are stealing all the cufflinks is that they are looking for the Cufflinks of Cathay. A "certain someone" is willing to pay lots of money for it. The Turtles don't know it yet, but Shredder is the "certain someone" who wants the cufflinks. Apparently an ancient Chinese explosive is hidden in one of the cufflinks. Shredder plans on using it to blow the Technodrome free of its lava bed.

      The investigation leads them to the house of Pietro Calzoni, who has the biggest collection of cufflinks around. The Turtles think that if anyone has the Cufflink of Cathay, it would be him.

      April and Irma, who are doing an investigation of their own, come up with the same idea as the Turtles. They all happen to end up at Pietro's house at the same time. The Turtles tell April and Irma to wait outside while they go in to get the cufflinks. Just as the Turtles get their hands on the cufflinks, Big Louie and his gang show up, followed by Shredder. The TMNT grab the cufflinks and escape to a pizza parlor to figure out what they are going to do with the explosive jewelery.

Bebop and Rocksteady finally find the cufflink and escape with Shredder to Dimension X. Krang does not think that the Turtles would be stupid enough to give them the cufflink with the explosive in it, so he has Shredder throw it out. Well, Krang was wrong!

      While April is on her way to interview the Premier, she spots Raphael driving the cab that Mr. Big and Little Huey are in.

The Turtles tell her that they're on their way and ask her to follow the cab. The cab arrives at Pier 53 and Mr. Big and Little Huey kidnap the Premier. The mobsters then tell the driver to take them to Mr. Big's hideout.

      Now the chase begins. April is still following the cab and informs the Turtles of their whereabouts. The Turtles decide to take a route to try to cut them off. They all come together unexpectedly at an intersection and the taxi and the Turtle Van collide. The impact crushes the Transmogrifier, causing it to go off. Seconds later, Raphael and the cab driver are returned to themselves.

      Mr. Big and Little Huey get arrested. April ends up getting her interview with the Premier, the cab driver gets a medal for saving the Premier and the Turtles return home with the real Raphael.moreless

      8.9
      Shredder sends out a message from Dimension X to the Turtles telling them to meet him at the Southside Dump so that he can kick their shells in. When the Green Team gets there, Shredder plans on using a dimensional teleporter to transport them back to the Technodrome. April and Vernon hear Shredder's proposition over the air and decide to go there to get the scoop. The teleporter only manages to get Michaelangelo and Raphael, but it also takes April, Irma and Vernon as well.

      After arriving in Dimension X, Michaelangelo, Raphael, April, Irma and Vernon manage to escape from the Technodrome, asking each other where they are going to go. Immediately after that, the Neutrinos show up to help them.

      Back on Earth, Donatello and Leonardo try to get their trans-dimensional portal running so that they can bring the gang home. In order to accomplish this, they have to sneak in the Channel Six Building and borrow a used transformer.

      In Dimension X, Michaelangelo and Raphael discover from the Neutrinos that the only portal is in the Technodrome. With their help, they break back into the Technodrome looking for the portal. Vernon, who is competing with April on the best news story, steals April's camera and leaves the Technodrome looking for a bigger story. Michaelangelo and Raphael contact Donatello and Leonardo informing them that they are ready to go home. They don't realize that Vernon has left until April tells them. Donatello tells them to hurry and find him because he does not know how long the portal will stay open.

      While all this is happening, somewhere else in the Technodrome, Krang has discovered that the Technodrome is stuck in a dormant volcano. If they can set off enough explosives, it just might be enough to get the Technodrome moving back to Earth.

      Michaelangelo, Raphael, April, Irma and the Neutrinos go out to find Vernon. They resuce him before he gets beat up by mutants and head back to the Technodrome. The gang spot the explosives near the Technodrome that Krang set and they rearrange them, hoping to ruin Krang's plan.

      Donatello transports them back to Earth just before the explosives go off and just before the portal on Earth closes.

      In Dimension X, the volcano erupts, but due to the Turtles, it does not work out the way Krang had hoped. Instead, it just surrounds the lower part of the Technodrome leaving it stuck deeper into the volcano.moreless

      Michaelangelo returns from his sojourn to the pet shop with a monkey named Clyde, much to the chagrin of the other Turtles. After only a few minutes with the undisciplined pet Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael demand that it be returned to the pet shop. Meanwhile, Burne Thompson has assigned April an interview with the notorious Mugsy McGuffin, a mob boss responsible for the theft of the Galoobie Ruby. It seems that Mugsy is being paroled after 15 years in prison and Burne thinks that because April will be the first woman he will lay his eyes on in all this time, he will give up the location of the stolen jewel. Unbeknownst to both April and Burne, Vernon plans to scoop April out of her story by arriving at the State Prison first.

      On the other side of town, while Mugsy's henchmen, Boris, prepares for Mugsy's homecoming, he accidentally spills black paint on Mugsy's pet parrot and quickly delivers it to Ralph's Rent a pet for quick cleaning. And of course as luck would have it, Michaelangelo, unable to get a refund for the chimp, exchanges it for a parrot. And as luck would have it, Ralph now has two identical parrots and is not sure which one he sold to Michaelangelo and which one he returned to Boris. No sooner does Mugsy arrive home, he discovers that his parrot is not his parrot! How does he know? Because he had hidden the key to a vault, where he had stashed the Galoobie Ruby around Polly's neck, inside her tuft of feathers. And now the key is gone.

      Meanwhile, Michaelangelo arrives back at the lair with the real Polly, now known as "Ditto". The other Turtles assume that Ditto will be safe and not cause the kind of damage that Clyde had. Of course, they soon learn that they were mistaken. Back across town, Mugsy learns that someone with a "green face" has the real Polly and that the Bering Arms Hotel, site of the locked vault with the stolen Galoobie Ruby is about to be demolished. Mugsy has to find that key.

      But again, as luck would have it, the Turtles have found the key and Donatello uses his Key Analyzer Spectroscope to determine what the key is for. Desperate to find the key, Mugsy contacts April and offers her an exclusive interview at his secret hideout. Vernon overhears her conversation and races to the location in an effort to, once again, beat April out of her story. Only Mugsy uses April and the media to find Polly by pretending to be heartbroken over her disappearance.

      However, Burne Thompson is none too happy about April's use of the airwaves and sends her over to the Bering Arms Hotel to cover the demolition. Michaelangelo once again returns his beloved pet to Ralph's Rent-a-Pet, the other Turtles learn the identity of the key and the identity of Polly. They rush to Ralph's to prevent Michaelangelo form returning Polly only to learn that he is trapped at the Bering Arms Hotel before the other and recover the Galoobie Ruby. But, after the usual third act shenanigans, the Turtles have only enough time to rescue Michaelangelo before the building blows, causing the sky to rain ruby confetti as Mugsy is hauled away to jail.moreless

Baxter's fate, sadly, is not so pleasant, Krang immediately orders his execution, and he is sent to the disintergration chamber. A tiny Fly is his sole company inside the chamber as the device is activated. But fate has other ideas for the scientest.

With that said, Carter and the Turtles team up with April to "get the goods" on Dregg. At the location of the Star Shield construction site, our heroes are amazed by the sight of this "cross between a flying saucer and a battleship". Convinced that no good can come from this, April successfully videotapes Dregg and Hi-Tech discussing the real purpose behind the Star Shield - to attack the people of Earth!

Back at the lair, April reports on her meeting with the News Director and is surprised to learn that Carter is not with the Turtles. Temporarily setting aside their concern for their friend, they decide to "pirate" the broadcast themselves.

Bebop and Rocksteady go out to investigate, and they are abducted into a stranger alien craft owned and operated by Shreeka. Shreeka is an alien with an attitude and a vendetta against Krang. It seems that she and Krang used to be partners until he double-crossed her. She has spent eons tracking him down and now she has finally found him.

      What she wants, besides Krang's brain on a stick, is her most potent weapon, her Power Pack Energy Ring. Krang lies and tells her that he has given it to April. While Shreeka heads for the City, Krang gives Shredder the Ring and tells him to deliver it to April ASAP. Shredder is reluctant. Shred-head believes that a ring this powerful should be put to better use. Krang assures him that the ring is virtually useless - most of the power has drained out, but it will make the perfect "pawn" in their desire to be rid of the Turtles. Krang surmises that once Shreeka goes after April, the Turtles will come to her rescue and die for their efforts and destroy Shreeka in the process.

      While Irma buys a surprise birthday cake for April and the Turtles window shop at Spiffany's Jewelry Shop, Shredder arrives in town. The nasty ninja gift wraps Shreeka's ring and has it delivered to Channel Six News with a card from the Turtles.

After an Interglactic Scan Search, the TMNT discover that Shreeka is an interplanetary outlaw wanted in thirteen different galaxies for crimes too unspeakable to speak of -- and that she is after April.

In the final battle scene, Shreeka destroys the new Channel Six Building (still under construction) and ultimately her precious Power Pack Energy Ring.

At the front door, April and Michaelangelo are warned of the ancient curse by an Egyptologist, Sir Percival and his man servant Casbah. April and Michaelangelo pay them no mind and enter the Museum. No sooner is the sarcophogus opened, when the lights go out. The ghost of Osiris is revealed and a precious ruby, the Turtle's Eye, is stolen from the tomb -- along with April.

Here Percival details his plan to harness the power of O'Malley's Coment with the Turtle's Eye Ruby. He plans to use the gem as a ray magnifier, which he will use to "rule the world" and make April his queen.

      Back at the Museum, Michaelangelo is accused of being the thief until his true Turtle identity is revealed. The people think that Mikey is the spirit of Ahmed Turt-el, the sacred Turtle. All bow before him.

      Meanwhile, the other Turtles get wind of the theft, the disappearance of April and the curse of Ahmed Turt-el. They rush over to the Museum only to learn, thanks to Donatello's ability to read hieroglyphics, that there is no "curse of Ahmed Turtle -- only the "purse of Ahmed Turt-el. The TMNT decide to track down this so-called Egyptologist.

      Back at the Museum, Michaelangelo dons the clothes of Ahmed Turt-el and leads his followers to Sir Percival's Sphinx only to find themselves trapped in a chamber with closing walls. They escape with only moments to spare and team up with the other Turtles who have come to April's rescue. Meanwhile, inside the Sphinx, Sir Percival has locked his ray onto O'Malley's comet. What Sir Percival does not know is that the Turtle's Eye will not give him incredible power but will only cause the comet to crash to Earth.

      While Raphael, Michaelangelo and his followers do battle with Casbah and other followers of Sir Percival, Donatello and Leonardo escape and rush to the Planetarium via the Turtle Blimp. At the Planetarium, Donatello and Leonardo divert the path of the Comet, thereby saving the world from certain destruction.moreless

    • Sword of Yurikawa

      10/17/92
      8.8
      We open our story with April reporting from the Japanese Embassy about their latest historical artifact exhibit -- the Sword of Yurikawa. But this is not just any sword -- this sword was once owned by Splinter's ninja master. Apparently, the katana has amazing and powerful attributes. Splinter fears that if it were to fall in to the wrong hands, dire consequences would ensue. He orders the Turtles to go to the museum to guard the sword.

      Meanwhile, Krang's crazy scheme this week is to blow up the Tri-State Bridge just as a convoy of trucks carrying a "rare form of toxic waste" passes overhead. The toxic waste will spill into the harbor and upon contact with the sludge at the bottom of the river, create a race of MUD MUTANTS. Then, Krang will use his Mindbender Ray to make the Mud Mutants obey his every command.

      Meanwhile, Shredder learns about the ancient Sword of Yurikawa, now on exhibit at the Japanese Embassy, leaves the Technodrome and heads for the surface. He believes that if he possessed that sword there would be no need to blow up the bridge.

      But Shredder is not the only one in this story who covets the Sword of Yurikawa. It seems that Lafayette Le Drone, an international weapons fancier, wants to add the sword to his collection. Prior to the end of the first act, the Sword of Yurikawa is stolen by an "unknown" masked ninja and replaced with a bogus one which in turn is stolen by another masked ninja- attired Lafeyette Le Drone and replaced with a bogus one -- which in turn is stolen by masked ninja-attired Shredder and not replaced at all.

      By the time that the Turtles arrive to guard the sword, after making a detour for a pizza respite, the sword is gone. Embarrassed by their sense of priorities, they vow to find the stoen sword rather than return to the lair and inform Splinter of their failure. But before the TMNT can begin their search, they are confronted by masked Ninja #1 and his flaming sword, and are summarily defeated.

      Back at the Technodrome, Shredder learns that he does not possess the Sword of Yurikawa and returns to the surface to find it. Krang is concerned that there is little time left to rig the bridge with explosives, but Shredder asssures him that the sword will be more effective.

      Thanks to the security camera video, the Turtles learn of Le Drone's identity and set out for his mansion in an effort to reclaim the sword. Unbeknownst to them, they are being followed by Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady. After a minor squirmish with Le Drone, the Turtles realize that he does not have the "real" sword of Yurikawa and, once again, set out in search of it.

      No sooner do they leave, then Shredder arrives and convinces Le Drone that it would be in his best interest to join forces with the nasty ninja. Shredder promises that once he uses it for his own purposes, Le Drone can add it to to his collection. And no sooner do the Turtles take possession of the real Sword of Yurikawa (thanks to the original Masked Ninja who stole it from the Japanese Embassy) then Shredder is able to liberate it from them.

      At the Tri-State Bridge, with the Turtles trussed up in ropes and hanging from a suspension cable, Shredder awaits the convoy of trucks hauling the "rare form of toxic waste" and boasting about his new found destructive powers.

      But Shred-head's boasting is cut short, when in his attempt to use the power of the sword, it turns on him. Suddenly, the Masked Ninja arrives, frees the Turtles, and reveals himself to be none other than Splinter. Foiled again, Shredder retreats and the convoy safely passes over the bridge.moreless

      8.8
      Titanus sends of couple of his H.A.V.O.C. mutants to bust into the Aerospace Plant and steal some much needed equipment. Only problem is that the Turtles were waiting for them. After a fight, the mutants "beat feet" and the Turtles are left scratching their heads wondering what the mutants were after. Leonardo, Raphael, and Donatello also berate Michaelangelo - maybe if he hadn't been goofing off, the mutants might not have escaped.

      Back at H.A.V.O.C. headquarters, during our exposition scene, Titanus explains that he has finally located his missing FLUX TRANSFORMER, the one thing that will make the mutants "masters of time and space travel", at a heavily fortified military base. And the only way he can get it, is by building his SKY PLATFORM. And the only way he can build his SkyPlatform is by distracting the Turtles long enough so that his mutants can obtain the required parts.

      To this end, Titanus springs a CON from prison (thanks to the Turtles who put him there in the first place), turns the con into a mutant now known as SYNAPSE, a creature of pure energy, and sics him onto the Turtles. Back at the lair, Donatello logs onto his computer to investigate the Aerospace Plant to see if he can learn what the mutants might have been after, only to have Synapse come bursting out of his computer to attack the Turtles.

      With the Turtles busy being chased by Synapse, Titanus is able to successfully build his SkyPlatform. But once again, Michelangelo is "distracted", and his brother Turtles are left to deal with Synapse by themselves. Over at Channel Six, Synapse is terrorizing April, Vernon, Burne and the other employees as he systematically trashes the news station.

      While Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael pursue Synapse across town, Michelangelo returns to the scene of the original crime where he spies Titanus and company, building their SkyPlatform, and is caught in the "peeping-tom" act. After Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael finally defeat Synapse by sending him into outerspace where he will "ride the airwaves" for eternity, they unite with Michelangelo to stop Titanus and his mutants. On board the SkyPlatform, the Turtles engage the mutants into a firefight in the engine room, causing the massive ship to malfunction and crash, but not before Titanus and his fellow H.A.V.O.C. members escape aboard a shuttle.moreless

Michaelangelo lands a job as a TV cook, Donatello works in a fix-it shop, Leonardo works at a Fitness Centre, and Raphael sacrifices his self-respect to entertain kids at birthday parties.

The two rouges scheme to create an army of Robo Rats and Android Alligators to aid in this endeavour, even though the Turtles have disbanded.

      Leatherhead still can't resist the urge to hunt down each of the green machine and extract vengeance on them. Rat King seems to agree, and the two quickly ambush and capture most of the TMNT, all except Leonardo.

The Turtles force their enemies into retreat.

      Thanks to a malfunction in Donatello's InterDimensional Early Warning Detection Machine, a tear has occurred in the fabric of space and time, allowing two heinous criminals from Dimension X, Skarg and Dementor, to arrive in The City - Times Square. Unfortunately, both Irma and Vernon, who are working together on a story and just happened to be in the neighborhood, disappear as Skarg and Dementor arrive. It does not take long for Skarg and Dementor to realize that they could rule the world, but first they must recruit some more help from Dimension X .Back in the Dimension X Penitentiary, Vernon panics as he and Irma find themselves behind bars.

      Meanwhile, April investigates the disturbance in the InterDimensional rift and comes face to face with Skarg and Dementor. She successfully eludes them and runs into the Turtles, who in turn challenge the DimensionXers in vain. But before they "leave the scene of the crime", Skarg overhears Donatello talk about his InterDimensional portal IDP and realizes that this is exactly what they will need to bring over their troops. Later, at the Lair, Skarg and Dementor arrive unexpectedly, imprison the Turtles in a force field and activate Donatello's, "primitive by Dimension X standards", IDP. Within moments, the Dregma Brothers have arrived on planet Earth.

      After a McGuyver-esque escape, Donatello begins work on the IDP, preparing it to send the Dimension Xers back, while Leonardo, Michaelangelo and Raphael team up with April and dash over to the National Guard Armory where they deduce that the convicts from Dimension X might be heading. But before they can get there, they encounter Skarg, Dementor, and The Dregma Brothers in a modified flying tank, constructed from various military equipment liberated from the National Guard Armory.

      When they contact Donatello for help, he informs them that he is ready, but that they must lead the Dimension Xers to the exact same spot they entered our dimension -- if not Donatello's IDP could create the "mother of all vortexes". With little other choice, Leonardo, Michaelangelo, and Raphael run toward Times Square, with Skarg, Dementor, and the Dregma Brothers in hot pursuit. At the appointed place and time, the Dimension Xers are sucked back into Dimension X while Vernon and Irma are sucked out.moreless

      8.7
      Michaelangelo and the other Turtles go "topside" in an effort to find the latest issue of "The Adventures of Bugman", only to learn that the comic book has been canceled. Michaelangelo is devastated.

      Back at the lair, Michaelangelo, Splinter and the other Turtles find it curious that they have also not seen or heard from the real Bugman (aka Brick Bradley) since the last issue of Michaelangelo's favorite comic.

      Meanwhile, unbeknownst to the TMNT, they have been followed by a young man who writes down every move that they make. When their "intruder alert" alarm sounds, they discover their tailer in the bowels of the sewer making a map. As the Turtle team explains to youth the dangers of "lurking" around in the sewers, the ledge that they're standing on collapses sending the mutants hurtling down a shaft while the young man makes good his escape.

      Later, as the Turtles begin their search for Brick Bradley/Bugman, Michaelangelo is once again followed by the youth. Only this time, the young man finds that he needs Mikey's help when he is taken hostage by two would-be bank robbers. Michaelangelo is only able to learn the young man's name: Jerry Spiegel, before he disappears again.

      At Channel Six News, Irma runs a "computer check" on Jerry Spiegel and discovers that he was the writer/artist of "The Adventures of Bugman" comics. Michaelangelo gives Spiegel's editor, Julie Schmooze, a call to learn more about his "shadow."

      Mike discovers that "The Adventures of Bugman" was canceled because the real Bugman sued them. He now fears that Jerry Spiegel wants to write a comic book based on the Turtles and thereby revealing the location of their lair to the whole world -- including Krang and Shredder.

      Meanwhile, April interviews Professor Higgenbottoms at Designer Genes Research Laboratory where it is revealed that a special collection of termites has been stolen. What makes these termites so special is that they don't just eat wood -- they eat metal, concrete and plastic.

      Elsewhere, in an abandoned warehouse somewhere in the city, an egomaniac, who looks not unlike The Shredder, calling himself The Swatter, releases the mutant termites into the city. Their first stop: The Conspicuous Consumption Mall, where they devour shop after shop.

      The Turtles arrive just in time to save April who was doing a live report and to receive an ultimatum from The Swatter. He wants the Turtles to surrender to him or he will unleash the termites onto the rest of the City.

      Michaelangelo tracks down Brick Bradley's current address, the Happyville Meditation Center, to help the Turtles battle the mutant termites. Only Brick Bradley is finally "one with the universe" and nothing can make him mad, therefore he can no longer "turn into" Bugman.

      While Michaelangelo tries to get Brick Bradley upset, the other three Turtles do battle with The Swatter who catches them in flypaper and asks them twenty questions.

      Thanks to April, Michaelangelo is able to get Brick Bradley mad and he saves the City from The Swatter who turns out to be none other than Jerry Spiegel. It seems that Jerry was merely tyring to get close to the Turtles so he could do research for his latest comic book: "The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles".

      When it is suggested that he do something original, he proudly boasts that he is a "writer" and that he has never had an original idea in his life. Rim shot.moreless

Meanwhile, Michaelangelo has been ousted out of the Lair for listening to the head banging music of WOOF.

      Shredder, Rocksteady and Bebop travel to the Earth's surface via a Transport Module in an effort to locate the radio station. They find it anchored at sea in an old abandoned freighter and then The Shredder, as the new DJ: The Sliver, tells all of WOOF's listeners to come to the station.

      The first one affected by The Shredder's command is Michaelangelo, who walks zombie-like toward the harbor. Irma, another WOOF fan, is next, followed by April who inadvertently hears Shredder's voice when her favorite radio station changes to WOOF. Leonardo, Raphael, and Donatello rescue April but lose Michaelangelo and Irma as they, along with the rest of the city's population head out for the open sea and toward a vortex that will lead them into Krang's Chasm.

      Donatello is able to locate the source of Krang's Mind Control Signal and reverses the signal, causing a power drain which in turn causes the Mind Control Signal to go BOOM! Michaelangelo and Irma are rescued just moments before being sucked into the vortex while the rest of the City's population goes rushing after the Shredder, Rocksteady and Bebop.

      While practicing their martial arts, Leonardo tells Splinter that he is convinced that there is one combat maneuver he has yet to teach the Turtles. Splinter ponders this for a moment and then agrees to teach him the one technique for which there is no defense, the Viper Maneuver. However, despite being Splinter's most gifted pupil, the Viper Maneuver seems to be beyond Leonardo's ability. Splinter suggests that maybe there is some hidden fear that prevents him from accomplishing the maneuver. Leonardo is insulted and quickly defends his honor by stating that he is not afraid of anything! Splinter informs Leonardo that he will not be able to perform the Viper Maneuver until he confronts his deepest, darkest fear and overcomes it.

      Meanwhile, April O'Neil reports on a break-in at the city zoo's reptile house. It seems that someone made off with over six hundred species of snakes. Donatello, Raphael and Michaelangelo are very curious about this robbery while Leonardo seems to be visibly shaken by the mere mention of the word: snake.

      You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know what Leonardo's deepest darkest fear is. So, while prowling the streets looking for clues to the stolen snakes, the Turtles pass the Atlan-Tec Building and notice that all of the equipment inside is moving. Upon further investigation, they discover that the movement is being caused by hundred of snakes. Before, they all slither away, the Turtles are able to catch one, slip a tracking device on it and follow it to whoever has programmed them to steal.

      Meanwhile the other Turtles are curious about Leonardo's strange behavior, but they have not made the connection to snakes. Across town, April and Vernon are cruising the streets, hot on the trail of the story when they come across Pinky McFingers and two of his henchmen breaking into a sporting goods store to steal scuba gear. Still on yet another side of town, the Turtles follow the snake with the tracking device onto the grounds of the old Botanical Gardens, which has been abandoned for years. There the TMNT are attacked by hundreds of snakes. Leonardo panics and is unable to help the other Turtles. Before crashing through some rotting floorboards, Leonardo finally announces his fear of snakes.

      When Leonardo regains consciousness, the snakes and the other Turtles are gone. Leonardo is in a quandary. He knows that he must save the other Turtles, but his first reaction is to run which he does... straight into April and Vernon's Channel Six News van, which had been following Pinky McFinger's limo to the Old Botanical Gardens.

      While April and Leonardo exchange stories as to why whey are both there, inside McFingers delivers the stolen diving gear to a hooded figure known as Cobrato. Cobrato informs Pinky that he and his men are to use it to place a thermal device, built with all the stolen electrical equipment, at the bottom of the East River. Cobrato goes on to tell them that he plans to activate the device causing the water to rise in temperature and create a tropical atmosphere for his loyal subjects the snakes.

      Leonardo, April and Vernon follow Pinky McFingers and his henchmen to the river, capture him and turn him over to the police. But not before the villains are able to place Cobrato's device at the bottom of the river. April does some research and learns that Cobrato is really Rudolph Cobrato, a herpetologist who disappeared after a tragic accident involving an experiment with snake venom. Meanwhile, convinced that his device is in place, Cobrato begins the activation process while Donatello, Michaelangelo and Raphael, convinced that Leonardo is too afraid of snakes to come back and rescue them, devise their own escape.

      All across the city, the temperature is rising, but still Leonardo is too afraid to go back and help his brothers, that is until three small children who worship the Turtles call him a chicken after he tells them that there is nothing he can do. Mustering up all of his courage, Leonardo successfully battles his way through the snakes, only to be confronted by the hooded Cobrato, who finally reveals himself to be a snake. Using the Viper Maneuver, Leonardo is able to defeat Cobrato, rescue the other Turtles, deactivate Cobrato's device and even cause an ungrateful Cobrato to revert back to his human form.moreless

While covering the story of the grand opening of Combat Land, April, Irma and Vernon discover that there may be no grand opening until the robotic warriors have been fully tested. It seems that the park's owner, Horatio Stressbar, has been unable to find anyone with the combat skills to give his robotic warriors a thorough work out. April, concerned about getting her story on the air, offers the services of the Turtles. After being introduced to Horatio Stressbar and Denton Nulcet, the chief robotic engineer, the Turtles are informed that they will not be allowed to use their weapons in Combat Land. The Turtles reluctantly agree and are issued "safety" weapons to battle against the robotic warriors.

Unable to convince April of her suspicions, Irma sets out with her mini-cam to find the real story. Sure enough, after being attacked with real weapons by robotic Samurais, robotic Knights and robotic cyber-warriors, the defenseless April, Leo, Don and Raph come to the same conclusion. Then, for no apparent reason, the robots stop attacking our heroes and begin a march into the City. Meanwhile, Michaelangelo, Irma and Vernon are missing. So, while Leonardo searches for Michaelangelo in the confines of the amusement park, Donatello and Raphael follow the robots into the City, while April investigates Horatio Stressbar's past.

It seems that he is convinced the City will then have to pay him twenty million dollars to repair them. But it does not end there, Stressbar and Nulcet are also planing to destroy bridges, subways and buildings in order to acquire every major contract in the city.

Meanwhile, across town, the notorious Black Heart ninja gang, led by a young man named Yoku, has been robbing The City's banks and garnering the attention of Shredder and Krang, who want to put the Black Heart gang to work for them. At Pier 17, Mogo-San arrives and is surprised to find Hamato Yoshi is now a rat. Splinter promises to explain it all, but first he wants to know what brings his sensei to America. Mogo-San explains that he has arrived to pass on the sacred white belt of the Mogo clan to his grandson Yoku and that he needs Splinter help in locating him. This Yoku fellow was once a student of Splinter's and is the same Yoku who leads the infamous Black Heart gang. Splinter takes Mogo-San back to the sewer-lair and introduces him to the Turtles, who are most eager to accommodate him by helping Splinter search for Mogo-San's grandson. But alas, Mogo-san is very distressed to learn of the dishonor Yoku bears upon the family name. While covering the break-in of a jewelry warehouse by the Black Heart gang, April spies Shredder, assumes that he is a part of it and contacts the Turtles, via her TurtleCom, to inform them. But when she meets with the Turtles, they forbid her to come with them and refuse to tell her what is going on. Naturally, as a reporter, this gets her angry. She decides to follow the Turtles to see why they are being so secretive. Shredder finally catches up with Yoku and the Black Heart gang and immediately strikes a deal. Yoku and his boys are to break-in to a certain Government building and steal some top secret nuclear testing site maps. In exchange for this, they will receive an armory of Dimension X weapons. After a simple demonstration, Yoku agrees. No sooner have they shaken hands on this agreement when Splinter and the Turtles arrive. Shredder manages to escape, but Yoku is taken prisoner and delivered back to the lair, and to his grandfather. Mogo-San shares his disappintment with Yoku and asks Splinter to burn the sacred White Belt -- better for it to be consumed by flames than dishonered by Yoku. Splinter reluctantly agrees and after a moment, the lair fills with smoke, allowing Yoku to escape during the confusion. Unfortunately, he does not escape from April, who just happened to be driving by at the same time as Yoku emerges from a man hole cover. She follows him in her van, as he meets up with the other members of the Black Heart gang, only to be taken prisoner when they catch her snooping on them. The bad ninjas force her to become the driver of their get-a-way car in their theft of the Top Secret government maps. While Splinter accompanies Mogo-San back to Pier 1 to return home, the Turtles rescue April and capture the real leader of the Black Market gang, Mr. Crocker, the Mid-City bank president. It seems that Yoku is a secret government agent assigned to infiltrate the Black Heart gang in an effort to gather evidence against them and flush out their leader. The Turtles are able to deliver Yoku to Pier 17 before Mogo-San's boat departs so that he can tell his grandfather the truth. Mogo-San is indeed relieved to learn that Yoku is an honorable man, but saddened that he can no longer pass on the sacred White Belt. Splinter then reveals that he had never destroyed it. Splinter was never convinced that Yoku was anything less than honorable. Meanwhile, Shredder is stuck in the Gobi Desert when he learns that Top Secret government maps are phonies.moreless

      Meanwhile, the Crystal Converger has led the Turtles and April to the same carnival. But before they can locate the Fragment, it is found by two small boys.

April, still itching to sink her teeth into a new story, investigates a chop-chop ring at work in the city.

      Despite interference from the Turtles, Shredder, Bebop, and Rocksteady successfully install an energy transmitter inside the Power Relay Station and escape unharmed. Back at the lair, the Turtles argue as to whose fault it might be that Shredder and company got away again. Splinter suggests that they spend less time trying to get Shredder and more time doing good things, which confuses the Turtles.

      Meanwhile, over at the Hall of Science, Krang activates his new dimensional portal, thanks to Shredder's installation of the Energy Transmitter at the Power Relay Station, giving him access to Dimension X. After Donatello's equipment registers a power surge emanating from the Hall of Science, they set out to investigate, only to find the place empty and the Dimensional Portal turned on. The Turtles figure that Krang Shredder, Bebop, and Rocksteady have journeyed to Dimension X, but they're not sure why.

      Before they can think about it any more, they hear a voice crying for help. That voice belongs to an alien from Dimension X named Gargon. He claims that Krang had him abducted from Dimension X and used him to test a new experimental mutagen. Feeling sorry for Gargon, the Turtles free him and the alien agrees to help them find Shredder in Dimension X. But once they arrive there, it seems as if Gargon is leading them on a wild goose chase: going from planet to planet, being attacked by aliens and monsters, being dropped into a middle of a war and never finding Shredder and Krang.

      Eventually it's revealed that Gargon has actually led them into a trap. Shredder arrives in the Technodrome and rewards Gargon by using his Retro-Mutagen Cannon and transforms Gargon back to his normal self. Gargon apologizes to the Turtles and pleads for their forgiveness. But just as Shredder is about to transform the TMNT back into real Turtles so that he may be rid of them at last, Gargon saves them, allowing the Turtles to destroy the Technodrome's engines, and return to Earth through the Dimensional Portal, trapping Shredder, Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady in Dimension X.moreless

      While Krang hires some local hoods to drill for anti-freeze (in an effort to free the Technodrome from the frozen Arctic), he sends Shredder, Rocksteady and Bebop down to the Louisiana Swamps in search of the Mutagen Pool. Shredder's mission is to extract said mutagen with the Mutagen Shooter to use against the Turtles.

      Napoleon Bonafrog contacts the Turtles when he sees Shredder and crew patrolling the swamps and then inadvertently is blasted by the Mutagen Shooter when Rocksteady trips over a root, causing him to mutate into a mean giant frog. Shredder uses this to his advantage and returns to the City with his new "slave" in tow.

      In the sewers, Napoleon reluctantly leads Shredder, Rocksteady and Bebop in the Turtles' lair. But before he is close enough, the mutagen wears off and he reverts back to his normal size and warns the Turtles off. Shredder zaps him again, causing him to mutate yet again. Shredder orders Napolean to destroy the Turtles. Giant Napoleon refuses and runs away.

      Meanwhile, Big Louie realizes that the diamond used to pay him off for his delivery of the anti-freeze is not the Star of Hoboken -- in fact, it is nothing more than glass. The mobster is angry and he wants the real diamond. Big L drives all over town searching for Shredder when he stumbles upon Napoleon (who he had "met" during the payoff and who has shrunken back down to his normal size), who he now holds for ransom until Shredder makes good on their deal.

      Back at Big Louie's hideout, with Shredder and the Turtles hot on their tail, Napoleon reverts back to his mutated size -- and once again he is very angry and refuses to obey the Shredder. But Shredder zaps him again with the Mutagen Shooter and once again, Napolean is under The Shredder's spell. They take Donatello prisoner and return to Shredder's secret hideout.

      Shredder is very upset that Krang's Mutagen Shooter is defective and forces Donatello to fix it or otherwise he will launch his heat-seeking missiles against the other three Turtles. Donatello agrees but ends up crossing the wires causing it to have no affect on him and reverting Napoleon back to his original size.

      The Shredder launches his heat-seeking missiles anyway, failing to realize that turtles and frogs are cold blooded. He barely escapes with his life.moreless

While at the Labs, Irma falls into some "goop" that the good Professor Chumley describes as harmless. Nonetheless, she feels ill and goes straight home.

      Meanwhile, inside the Technodrome on the Arctic Ocean floor, Krang and Shredder watch April's broadcast and decide that the "reverse polarity magnet" device is just what they need to rule the world.

      Later that night, Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady break into Magno-Dyne Labs and attempt to steal the Professor's invention. As fate would have it, Irma is walking by in her Halloween costume, which looks like Wonder Woman's in design. As she passes by, Irma is accidentally "zapped" by the magnet device when Bebop accidentally turns it on.

      When Shredder and company try to "take care" of Irma, they find themselves being "taken care of," as Irma inadvertently displays super powers.

      Later, on the way home from the party, Irma tries to convince both the Turtles and April of her new found powers. No one believes her, until April and Irma separate from the Turtles and are confronted by two muggers in a dark alley.

      April and the Turtles become believers as they witness Irma's spectacular super powers. But Irma is now out of control. She sees herself as the new crime fighter in town and is determined to right all wrongs. Fortunately, Donatello planted a tracking device on her before she fled from the alley in pursuit of evil-doers everywhere.

      So our intrepid heroes follow Irma around town, all night long, saving herself from herself, that is until the inevitable happens -- Irma, finds herself trapped inside a Transport Module, with Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady and the "reverse polarity magnet machine," headed for the Technodrome.

      The Turtles learn that Irma's super powers will wear off in five minutes. Meanwhile, Krang tests the "reverse polarity magnet" machine on a battleship, doing target practice on a mothball fleet in the harbor, by lifting it out of the ocean and flying it across the city skyline.

      With a flip of a switch, the Turtle Van becomes a Turtle Sub and the TMNT race to the Technodrome, rescue Irma, and gently put the battleship down on a busy thoroughfare.

      Donatello then rewires the controls to turn the "reverse polarity magnet" machine into a regular magnet machine -- which means the mothball fleet will be pulled down under water and drawn toward the Technodrome, destroying it.moreless

Krang has retained one of the Polarisoids "home movies" and adapted it so that when it is played in the Polarisoids' camera, it will unleash all the terrorizing aliens that the Polarisoids have "videotaped" on their vacations across the galaxies. Krang believes that these vicious aliens will keep the Turtles busy so that he can take control of The City.

      When the Polarisoids locate the surprised Turtles, they have no choice but to invite them back to their lair. On the way, Shredder arrives and steals the Polarisoids camera.

And while this is happening, Krang's computer is breaking into computer systems all over the City and taking control.

It looks like Krang will be victorious when Shredder plays back some footage that Frip shot on a planet with no gravity -- everything starts floating away -- including the Turtles. But when Shredder has the camera inadvertently knocked out of his hands, Frip retrieves it and turns it off.

      While the Rat King searches for food in the sewers, he comes across a canister of mutagen. Thinking that it is nothing, he throws it away and continues to search for food.

      Rat King soon comes across Bebop and Rocksteady, who were accidentally transported to the sewers by Shredder. They are on Earth to meet two thieves that stole explosives for them. Shredder tells them that while they are in the sewer, they can search for a canister of mutagen that was lost there. The Rat King hears all this and realizes that the canister he threw away was the one with the mutagen in it. He figures he could use the mutagen to make human size rats that will help them get food.

      While searching for subjects, he comes across Irma and Vernon, who are in the sewer working on a story. He captures them and using the mutagen, turns them into rats. Using his flute to put them under his power, he orders them to go to the surface and bring back food.

      Meanwhile, April gets worried when Irma and Vernon don't show up at the office. She asks the Turtles to help her look for them. The Turtles and April find Irma and Vernon's tracks and realize that the Rat King has probably captured them. The Turtles send April back to Cahnnel Six to see if maybe they have returned.

      After searching the sewer for the mutagen and not finding it, Bebop and Rocksteady go to the surface to meet the thieves. They discover that the thieves are trying to double cross them and Bebop and Rocksteady decide to follow them.

      The Rat King goes to Channel Six after Irma and Vernon fail to return with food. Using his flute, they transform back into rats and capture April. While out searching for food, Vernon overhears where there is a lot of cheese and informs his master about it. Leaving April in his lair, the Rat King, Irma and Vernon head to the airport.

The thieves put the explosives in the cheese crates and the cheese in the explosives crate. The Rat King, Irma and Vernon go there to look for the cheese crates and the Turtles are there to rescue Irma and Vernon. With Splinter's help, the Turtles and April manage to rescue Irma and Vernon. The thieves get away empty handed. Bebop and Rocksteady get transported back to Dimension X with the explosives in a plane.

      While Splinter is away on meditative satori, Donatello sets his sights on solving world hunger. He invents the "Food Revivafiver", a device designed to reverse the aging process of food.

      However, Michaelangelo accidentally zaps the other Turtles with the device and Donatello fears that it may have devastating effects on them. Meanwhile, Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady break into a government weather station to steal balloons and helium. Shedder returns to the Technodrome while Bebop and Rocksteady load their Transport Module with their booty.

      Back at the Turtles' lair, Donatello, Raphael, and Leonardo are shrinking down to Turtle Babies. When April contacts the Turtles about the break in at the Government Weather Station, the three baby Turtles can't wait to get there and punch Shredder in the nose. They all climb on one skateboard and race across town with a frustrated Michaelangelo in pursuit. However, when they arrive, Shredder, as stated earlier, is already gone and Michaelangelo and the three Turtles Babies prove to be no match for Bebop and Rocksteady. Later, while April continues on her story and Michaelangelo returns to the lair to search through Donatello's notes for an antidote, Irma is left to baby sit Donatello, Leonardo and Raphael.

      Meanwhile down in the Technodrome, Krang reveals this episode's scheme. It seems that the villain plans to use the helium-filled weather balloons to support a man-made bogus island, a place where Krang intends to lure the city's top criminals with a bogus treasure map. When they all gather on the island, Krang will release the tether that secures the island to the Technodrome, and all of his competition will float off in to space.

      Only once again, Krang's plans are foiled, as April is reassigned. Burne sends her out to the mysterious tropical island where the leading underworld figures have beeen spotted.

      Michaelangelo decides to go with her, and to the surprise of both of them, so do the three baby Turtles. During a skirmish, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael escape into the ocean, where, lo and behold, the salt water transforms them back into their natural states. They are now ready to go back and kick butt. Shredder and company retreat back to the Techndrome and April contacts the police to pick up the city's crime lords.moreless

      Thanks to Vernon's irresponsible journalism, the Turtles find it necessary to stand guard at the Genetic Research Lab. The TMNT are protecting the Genetic Essences of numerous insects, as developed by a local research scientist - essences that were designed to create insects for specific purposes. Meanwhile, in an attempt to open the portal to Dimension X, Krang opens the portal "to the place where he put Baxter Stockman." And naturally, Baxter Stockman/The Fly comes "buzzing" out crying "I'm free! I'm free!" and takes control of the Technodrome. Baxter is determined to make Shredder and Krang pay for turning him into a hideously deformed mutant and to get his revenge on everybody in the whole wide world. With the aid of Baxter's alien computer buddy, he learns about the dangerous genetic substances as reported by Vernon only moments earlier. Baxter is hell-bent on "acquiring" these "dangerous genetic substances" to enact his revenge. Back at the Genetic Research Lab, the Turtles, bored to tears, are called away to rescue April atop a burning building. No sooner do they leave, than Baxter Stockman/The Fly arrives and does the dirty deed. While Baxter Stockman/The Fly flies over the City looking for something to mix Krang's mutagen with the "genetic essences of insects", he spies a fireman dousing the flames of the EMF Building, the site of April's recent rescue by the Turtles, with a Super-Slosher 2000. Baxter is convinced that this is just what the doctor ordered and is proven right when he turns the "fearless firemen" into giant "fear inducing Termites". Baxter Stockman/The Fly's next target is the local carnival. Within minutes every human in the place has become an insect - an insect with a voracious appetite. So naturally, when the Turtles arrive on the scene, they have no idea that they are beating innocent victims - that is until the alien computer (left behind when Baxter flew off to "transform" his next set of victims, spills the beans that Baxter is at Channel Six). But when April and the Turtles arrive, they discover that they are too late. Irma has been turned into a moth, Vernon has been turned into a spider, Burne has been turned into a bee, and the interior walls of Channel Six are now honey-combed. After a series of misadventures, the Turtles capture Baxter Stockman/The Fly. But in the process, the converted Super Slosher 2000 is broken and now the only way to turn all of Baxter's victims back into humans (including April, who is now a wasp) is to borrow Shredder's Retro-Mutagen ray, which he coincidentally had just repaired at the beginning of the first act. After another series of misadventures down in the Technodrome, the Turtles destroy the alien computer, send Baxter back to the place he came from, obtain Shredder's Retro-Mutagen Ray gun and return back to the City where they turn everyone back to normal - or normal as they ever were, and destroy Shredder's device.moreless

But General Tragg tires quickly of the Turtles' feeble attempts to capture him and, using his Rockolizer, creates a Giant Rock Monster and sends it chasing after the Turtle Van - thinking they are still inside.

      The Turtles arrive at the Channel Six building and lure the Giant Rock Monster away to a nearby construction site before it can destroy the building with April inside. Meanwhile, Krang is getting anxious as liftoff time is fast approaching and Bebop and Rocksteady have still not attached the remote control device to the Super Laser.

      Back at the construction site, the Turtles defeat the Giant Rock Monster, only to have General Tragg create six more new ones from the remains of the original Giant Rock Monster. However, with typical Turtle ingenuity, these Rock Monsters are destroyed, as well as General Tragg's Rockolizer.

      Before the Turtles can capture him, Krang returns General Tragg back to Dimension X. As the Turtles start to celebrate their victory, April comes rushing into the scene to tell them that there is more trouble with the Super Laser that just was launched. Somehow, she got wind of Shredder and Krang's scheme.

      The Turtles race to the launch site but are too late. Krang has control of the Super Laser and is able to free the Technodrome from its icy prison. Unfortunately for the bad guys, Bebop and Rocksteady, while arguing over a Captail Cow comic book, disrupt the Super Laser remote control equipment, causing the Super Laser to cut a hole in the ice, causing the Technodrome to fall through and pluge to icy cold depths of the Arctic Ocean.moreless
