Episode Summary

EDIT

Krang and Shredders' scheming has The Turtles and New York afloat in confusion: Literately!
Shredder is using a new anti-gravity magnet to throw everyone in the city into the sky, and keep them there, with noone, not even the TMNT, earthbound any more, Shredder and his hoods can do as they please, and using state-of-the-art anti-gravity boots to stay grounded. 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!
Travelling to the surface, Shredder amplifies the magnet's power, and soon every building in New York is sent skyward, the TMNT are barley able to avoid the kamikaze skyscrapers. 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.
Donatello repairs the satellite dish, and April congratulates him with a kiss, now who's feeling like he's afloat on cloud nine?

    Viewing this episode brought me back to memory lane. I’ve missed the Turtles so much. But seeing after all these years had me realize how corny the dialogues were. Overall it was an interesting concept to see Shredder actually show some spine, by disrupting the gravitational pull. In reality I think it’s safe to assume that by disrupting the flow of gravity, there would have been harsher casualties. But I guess I should take it into account that this was not meant to be an accurate show but an entertaining one for kids.moreless
