Episode Guide

  • Night of the Rogues
    Episode 19
    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
  • 10/30/93
    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.

    Leonardo, Michaelanglo and Raphael are helpless without Donatello and his brains. 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
  • Atlantis Awakes
    Episode 23
    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
  • The Legend of Koji
    Episode 16
    At the City's Museum of Fine Arts, Shredder uses his "Time Portal" invention to journey back to ancient Japan so that he can "destroy Splinter and the accursed Turtles once and for all by changing history." 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.

    Meanwhile a young Samurai, named Hamato Koji, is also roaming the woods in search of something his sensei instructed him to find, in order to start his own ninja clan. Back in ancient Japan, Splinter and the Turtles arrive just in time to help Koji defend himself against Shredder and Oroko Sancho's men, who have been ordered to kill Koji before he locates that which he needs to create what will become the Foot Clan.

    Needless to say Shredder is extremely angry that the Turtles have followed him to the past and threatens that they will never escape the past without the Time Machine Remote Control. 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

  • 10/9/93
    The Turtles and Splinter are visiting London's British Museum, and study a portrait of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere and the Knights of the Round Table. In Dimension X, Krang is using a long-range scanner and discovers a rare metal buried in a ruined castle in England. The metal turns out to be King Arthur's legendary sword, Excalibur. Shredder arrives in England and grabs the sword, which has the ability to raise ancient knights, and transform modern England into medieval England. When Shredder realizes its powers, he decides to forget Krang and rule England himself. The power of the sword stops the Turtles at every turn, and April and Irma are captured by the mutants, Shredder deciding to make April his queen.

    The final battle takes place at the ruined castle of Camelot, with the Turtles dueling with Shredder and the mutants in a medieval tournament. The spirits of Arthur and Guinevere rise and the Turtles defeat Shredder, returning Arthur's sword to him.moreless
  • Artless
    Episode 5
    Two snobbish art-collecting aliens arrive in Florence and begin stealing great works of art, while the Turtles and April are there. The citizens blame the Turtles for the theft, and after being defeated in their efforts to stop the aliens, the TMNT must escape an angry mob.

    The Turtles again run into the aliens, who are ecstatic when they learn their names are Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael -- and decide to take these great artists back to their planet!

    April broadcasts from the Roman Coliseum, trying to lure the aliens into draining their ship's energy by beaming up the gigantic structure. The Turtles get free, and with Splinter's help convince the aliens that the artworks they stole are counterfeits. Disgusted, the aliens return the works and head for home.moreless
  • The Starchild
    Episode 15
    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
  • 11/20/93

  • 12/4/93
    After an unsuccessful attempt at capturing Razar and Tokka, the Turtles return to the lair to see the eccentric billionaire, A. J. Howard, spouting his ideology and his hatred for mutants across the airwaves. 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.

    Donatello reflects back on Splinter's earlier comment and devises a way to be captured by Dirk Savage, where they are able to convince the mutant hunter that they are the good guys, by saving his life against Razar. Meanwhile, April and Irma, while snooping around the secret new A.J. Howard building discover its real purpose: converting humans into mutants. After being contacted by April, Donatello, Raphael and Dirk Savage rush across town to stop Howard's fiendish plot and rescue all of their mutant friends.moreless

    As April, Irma and Vernon visit Athens, April receives a present of a strange necklace. She begins to go into trances, during which she acts like an imperious queen! Just then, Shredder along with Rocksteady and Bebop, who have been persuaded by Krang to search for a valuable energy source, arrive and find that the necklace is the power source that they need!

    The Turtles, who are in Greece sightseeing, arrive along with the members of a local Atlantis cult. A three way battle for possession of the necklace ensues. The cultists are also after April, whom the wannabe-Atlanteans see as the reincarnation of their lost queen.

    The Turtles rescue April and then set off to track down the origin of the medallion, leaving her behind. The TMNT and Shredder arrive in time to see April being crowned queen by the Atlantean worshippers.

    A cross-country pursuit leads to the shores of the Aegean, where April uses the powers of the medallion to bid Atlantis to rise from the sea -- which it does!

    Just in time, Donatello smashes the medallion, and Atlantis sinks again beneath the waves.moreless
  • 9/25/93
    Krang decides to use a Hydrofluxer device to threaten to flood Venice, holding it for ransom. The Turtles, in Venice, run into Shredder as he's portaled into a Venetian sewer. There's a battle, and Shredder escapes. The Turtles run into April and Irma, who are covering the Venice Regatta. Meanwhile, Krang sends down Bebop and Rocksteady with instructions for assembly of the Hydrofluxer, which he's sending in pieces. When the two mutants arrive, they run into April and Irma and terrorize them. When the Turtles come to the rescue, Rocksteady and Bebop escape, but drop the Hydrofluxer instructions. Donatello figures out from them what Shredder and Krang have planned, and the Turtles intercept Krang's transmission of the most vital piece of the Hydrofluxer.

    When an impatient Shredder turns on the device, it goes out-of control, and brings all sorts of stone gargoyles to life. The Turtles rescue Irma and April from a stone griffon, but the Hydrofluxer is also causing a huge tidal wave to form which threatens to flood the city.

    Shredder grabs April, holding her in exchange for the missing Hydrofluxer part. Donatello gives it to him - but when Shredder turns it on, the tidal wave subsides, the monsters return to their stone selves, and Venice is saved! Donatello modified the part to reverse the Hydrofluxer's effects.moreless

    Krang wants competent help to carry out his plans. Shredder is too busy getting revenge on the Turtles, and Bebop and Rocksteady "couldn't steal a free sample," so Krang clones himself six times. He orders the clones, who are very reluctant to follow Krang, to steal industrial equipment all over the city. The Krangazoids grow new bodies, and make a volcano under the city.

    Shredder, meanwhile, put a teleporting device and trapped Leonardo and April. The other three Turtles save them first, and Donatello uses Shredder's own weapon against him to teleport the Krangazoids to the Technodrome, where Krang tricks them into the Dimensional Limbo.moreless

  • 11/13/93
    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

The Turtles and Splinter, vacationing in Ireland, are attacked by the monster-sheep and track Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady to the Dublin Zoo, where they are transforming the animals. April, who is also in Ireland, gets trapped by the now-fierce animals in the petting zoo, and is rescued by the Turtles. Krang decides to pull the castle (where the Turtles are staying) up through the Dimensional portal. But Michaelangelo gets hit by the transformer and turns into an Arnold Schwarzenegger of a turtle and defeats Shredder, using his great strength to pull the castle down to Earth, overloading Krang's portal generator.moreless
  • Combat Land
    Episode 26
    There is a new amusement park in town and it is called Combat Land. So says the fliers that are being passed all over town inviting all comers to "test their skills against the greatest robot warrior in history and beyond" at tomorrow's grand opening. 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.

    The Turtles immediately decide to split up as they independently check out the Shogun Zone, the Medieval Zone, and the Future Zone. Meanwhile, Irma is sure that this whole set up is weird. 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.

    Along the way, Leo discovers Michaelangelo's robotic twin and is taken prisoner, while Donatello and Raphael have just discovered that the Combat Land robots are walking time bombs and they are all headed for the sewers. At the amusement park, Horatio Stressbar reveals that his plan to blow up the sewers is generated merely by greed. 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. Over at Channel Six, April verifies what we have just learned when she contacts Donatello and Raphael and tells them about Stressbar's petitions for repairing the sewers. Donatello and Raphael return to Combat Land, after Donatello successfully jammed the radio signal messages being directed to Combat Land robots. Donny rescues Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Irma, and Vernon, and they destroy the computers that control the robot warriors.moreless
  • 11/13/93
    While deep in meditation, Splinter is contacted telepathically by his sensei, Master Mogo-San who requests that Splinter meet him at Pier 17, where he will be arriving later that same day. Splinter dutifully agrees. 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

    Episode 1
    (synopsis credited to TMNT.COM)

    The Turtles and Splinter win a trip to Europe... but wind up riding in a crate with the Turtle Van. Once ashore they head for Paris. Meanwhile, Krang devises a giant electromagnet to pull the Technodrome free of its dinky Dimension X asteroid, using the Eiffel Tower in Paris as a giant antenna. In Paris, the Turtles and Splinter wind up touring the sewers... not their idea of a sightseeing tour. April, Vernon and Irma are also in Paris covering the Bastille Day celebrations, when Shredder, Rocksteady and Bebop arrive, wire the Eiffel Tower and throw the switch -- instantly magnetizing it and pulling everything except the Technodrome into it! The Turtles rescue April and the others, then -- not knowing the cause of the magnetism -- continue their sightseeing.

    Meanwhile, Shredder again hits the power generator switch... and the Eiffel Tower begins to be pulled loose from its foundations toward the portal! Just in time, Donatello destroys the generator, and the Tower plunges back onto its foundations.moreless
  • Rust Never Sleeps
    Episode 2
    In the Technodrome, Krang works on an oxidizer rocket with enough power to blast the Technodrome to Earth. But something goes wrong, and instead of thrust, the device grows rust! Shredder berates Krang for yet another failed idea, but Krang sees this as a tool of conquest, by threatening to rust all metal on the Earth unless the citizens surrender.

    Meanwhile, the Turtles are in Paris with Splinter, who is showing them the sights via the sewer system. Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady arrive in Paris with the device, which they charge with Paris' electrical power system.

  • Revenge of the Fly
    Episode 22
    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
