Episode Summary

Son of Return of the Fly II
The Turtles try to assist a scientist, Herman J. Melish, who is being chased down by two men trying to get their hands on an invention of his energy generator crystal. The crystal slips away and drops into the sewer.

Baxter Stockman, marooned in some weird dimension with his alien computer, Z, manages to return to Earth and find the energy generator. This generator can turn energy into material objects. Z uses the generator to make himself a body. After this, Baxter and Z come up with a plan to get revenge on Shredder. They head for the Channel Six building, planning on taking it over. They anticipate that the Turtles will try to rescue April, and when they do, Baxter will capture them to use as bait to get Shredder. Their plan works just as they had hoped.

Baxter captures the Turtles and Z sends out a message over the air telling Shredder to come and get the Turtles before Baxter beats him to it. Shredder, who is on Earth looking for a super computer that Krang has tracked to the Channel Six building hears Z's announcement and goes to get the Turtles. Just when Shredder thinks that he has finally got the Turtles, Leonardo gets free and the Turtles escape to rescue April.

Shredder also heads to the Channel Six building and there he finds the super computer Z. Baxter follows him and soon after, they are having a tug of war with Z. Shredder wants him to bring him back to Dimension X and Baxter is trying to keep him from going. The Turtles walk in and are intrigued by the sight, just watch as they fight over Z. Herman Melish walks in looking for the Turtles and discovers what has happened to his invention. After seeing Shredder and Baxter fight over it, he pulls out a self-destruct remote. Leonardo grabs it from him and presses the button. Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady manage to escape back to Dimension X before Z explodes. Baxter flies after Shredder with Z, who is now just a computer chip, but does not get through the portal in time and ends up being stranded in another weird dimension again.moreless

  • Baxter's back this time with a computer friend.

    This episode is veryt cool. Baxter returns to Earth after being strained in another dimension. The animation is nothing to write about home it but at least the story is good. I personally like the part where Donatello tells Rapahel "The Destruction of other people's property is wrong." Or something like that. Anyway, this episode gets a 9.5.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Baxter acts like he doesn't know who April is or what she looks like, despite the fact that they've met before in "It Came From Beneath The Sewers" and "Return of the Fly".

    • When the Turtles were searching the sewers, Raphael was talking in Leonardo's voice.

    • UK broadcast order discrepancy

      Krang says that when the volcano erupted, it completely damaged the main computer circuits. However, the volcano didn't erupt until The Dimension X Story aired. However, episodes were frequently aired out of order, and The Dimension X Story actually occurs before this episode.
