Episode Summary

EDIT
Slash - The Evil Turtle from Dimension X
AIRED:
Krang and Shredder are working on some super mutagen which they plan on using to create an army of super mutants that will take over the world. Bebop and Rocksteady decide to try the mutagen out on Bebop's pet turtle. The mutagen turns him into an evil Mutant Ninja Turtle, named Slash. When Slash starts destroying the place, Bebop and Rocksteady send him to Earth.

Fenton Q. Hackenbush, a developer for Donald J. Lofty, has a plan to do away with the sewer system and build condominiums. The Turtles find out what Fenton is planning and try to stop him. They phone April and make arrangements to meet and talk about Fenton's plans.

Meanwhile, Slash is looking for the palm tree from his water bowl on Earth, which is where Bebop and Rocksteady have told him it is. While looking for it, he meets Hackenbush. Hackenbush tricks him by saying he will show him where there are lots of palm trees if Slash will do something for him. Hackenbush tells him that he has to smash the Freedom Bell and everything else along his way. Hackenbush hopes that by having Slash do this, it will make the Turtles look guilty and get them arrested. This will get them out of the way so he can proceed with his plan for the sewers.

The Turtles find out from April that Slash is planning to smash the Freedom Bell. When they find him, they discover that they are no match for him. Even though he kicks their butt, they do manage to save the bell from being smashed.

Back in Dimension X, Krang and Shredder find out what Bebop and Rocksteady have done with the mutagen and are very angry. They send Bebop and Rocksteady to Earth to get Slash back.

Slash finds out that Hackenbush double crossed him and decides to get revenge on the city. He boards a rocket filled with garbage and threatens to crash into the city. The Turtles manage to steal the Techno Wing from Bebop and Rocksteady and use it to stop Slash from going through with his plan. Krang and Shredder open a portal for Slash's rocket to enter Dimension X, but Slash just flies by, dumping all the trash in the Technodrome.

After the Turtles tell Mr. Lofty what Hackenbush was planning to do, Mr. Lofty fires him and tells the Turtles not to worry about losing their home.moreless

  • Slash the turtle makes his

    7.1
    This was a good episode I really liked Slash and the business men's plan. However I really felt bad for Slash in this episode, the way every one kept using him and tricking him. I under stand the turtles desire to clear their names for all the destruction that Slash had been doing but i felt they could have reached out to him. But I kind of wonder if the the turtles wheren't more sympathatic toward him because he was another mutant turtle and they felt alienated by him.



    I think at this point the turtles are used to be unique and the only one of the kind. And crappy as it is that they are the only ones of their kind and how much they might resent that, it still makes up who they are and is really their identity that they are the only mutant turtles running around, and it makes them unique and perhaps special in a way as well. Now here is Slash another turtle that is mutant, and it shakes up their identity of being unique and special. So on top of all the other crap in their lives, now they don't even have the thought that they are unique either.



    I think Slash makes the ninja turtles feel a little threatened by this. I mean in appearance Slash looks more like a turtle than the TMNT and is more in touch with its primitive origins. Unlike the turtles who seems to be more human than turtle. This must really hit them where they live to be reminded that they are more closely related to human than turtles.moreless
  • Enter the Evil Ninja Turtle

    This one is mainly just a fun episode it sort of a parody on Frankinstin. The new character Slash truely is the main star of this episode, you can say this is what the turtles would be like if they had a darkside. It's just really funny seeing this poor guy have a very short fuse he just loses his temper just destroying everything and creating anarchy in sight, being unintentionally rude to April O Neil (how the heck could she mistake him for them, I'll never know) as well as beating the crap out of the turtle and everyone else that bothers him. All because those idiots Bebop and Rocksteady as well as that idiot land developer won't give him his palm tree which is sort of like a psychological safety blanket to lach on to. The only flaw with this episode is the subplot which I personaly thought didn't really work or fit right. In fact it was kinda daft when you think about it, the land developer I personally think must be a real idiot if he thinks he can tear down sewers and build condos over them. That's got to be the dumbest archetecual mistake ever, heck even a four grader could point that out.



    But that's a minor flaw that is easy to get past because were all too busy paying attention to Slash. Slash still remains one of the most memorable villans on Turtles.moreless
