    While experimenting with a Matter Transporter in his secret hideout, Shredder sends Rocksteady and Bebop to a nearby garbage dump.

The Turtles contact April O'Neil and lure her with the promise of a great news story, but when she arrives she discovers that they need a new TV to replace the one that Rocksteady and Bebop destroyed during their encounter.

    While cruising around Dimension X, the Neutrinos decide to "buzz" the Technodrome. However, when they fly by, they notice that a cargo bay door is open and can't resist the temptation. Inside, they tap into a transmission between Krang and Shredder on Earth. Through this transmission, the Neutrinos learn of Krang/Shredder's latest plan to destroy the Turtles. The Neutrinos decide that they can't sit idly by and watch, so they open their own portal and arrive on Earth to warn the Turtles. But before they can contact the Turtles, Shredder, who was warned by Krang of the Neutrinos presence on Earth and of their ability to open their own portal, sends Rocksteady and Bebop to "intercept" them and return them to his secret hide-out.

    Sensing Master Splinter's despair at his new life as a rat, the Turtles agree to use the small amount of mutagen that they have left to concoct a formula that will revert Splinter back into Yoshi. The experiment is a success and Yoshi decides to take a stroll, as a human, through the city.

    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

    Shredder attempts to use the world trade centre in an experiment, but the failure of Baxter's essential new device, plus the interference of those heroes in a half shell, prevent the villain's plot from succeeding. Frustrated at Baxter's latest failure, Shredder contacts Krang in Dimension X and demands that Rocksteady and Bebop be sent to aid him. Krang informs shredder that an exchange must be made to enable the portal to open properly, Shredder has the perfect candidate to take Rocksteady and Bepop's place: BAXTER! So, with a quick gesture (litteraly, Shredder actually throws Baxter into the portal), the transfer is made, and Shredder gets his old henchmen back. 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. Instead of being demoleculerised, Baxter is instead fused with the fly hovering over his head, and he becomes a hyrbird of man and Insect and one consumed with vengeance! Escaping Dimension X, "Baxter Fly" locates Shredder, but the villain tricks the hybrid scientest into working for him again. Baxter uses two electrodes to create a device that will send the turtles to a random alternate dimension once they go in range of it. The trap is set further when shredder gives April a dose of a poisonous flower, a Dooku Plant. This lures the peeved off green machine to a scrap yard, where the electrodes have been firmly concealed. Soon enough, the turtles are right where Shredder wants them when splinter, driving the turtle van, gatecrashes the scene. In the battle that follows, Baxter accidentally fly's near the now- active electrodes, and is immediatly sucked into another dimension. (Bye bye fly, heh heh), Shredder and his henchmen flee. Finally, Splinter is able to cure April of the Dooku plant's poison.moreless
