Episode Summary


Shredder orders Rocksteady and Bebop to place the Mesmerizer atop the Channel Six News Building Tower. The Mesmerizer is designed to turn all humans into zombies. It has no effect on mutants. But a bolt of lightning causes the device to fall from the Tower and crash through the roof of the Channel Six News Room. Rocksteady and Bebop activate the Mesmerizer and watch April, Irma, Vernon, Berne and the Anchorman become instant zombies, waiting to do their bidding. Suddenly, the Turtles protect them. The Turtles succeed in this, but not as they had hoped for. During the scuffle the Mesmerizer is broken. The Channel Six News Crew returns to normal and Rocksteady and Bebop escape with the broken Mesmerizer and the Turtles on their heels. Shredder now plots to return to the surface and implement to use the Mesmerizer himself to conquer the world.

  • one of the best funniest episodes of the turtles.

    this was a very funny episode, like krang asking bebop and rocksteady how many more times will they fail him and they say lots more times boss and they ant the least bit tired and shredder asks what they are doing and krang says failing thats what they know how to do.

    All the super mutants could say is stomp turtles.

    It was hallarious of the mesmerizer turning everyone back to their childhood like the people in the pizza parlor fighting, the tv anchorman saying nananana I\'m on tv and your not, vernon crying for his milk and cookies and kicking vernon, irma chasing april playing tag, and burne crying he wants to watch cartoons and shredder says no i\'m the master you are the slave and i say no cartoons and burne cries I want to watch cartoons and falls on shredder and cries he gave him a booboo. that was just halarious.moreless

    • Shredder: Those moronic mutants! What are they doing?!
      Krang: Failing, Shredder. It's the only thing they know how to do!

    • Michaelangelo: Whoa, check it out, dudes! "Night Of The Living Newscasters!"

    • Krang: They will fail, Shredder. They always fail.
      Shredder: But what choice do I have? Only mutants are immune to the Mesmerizer's beam. Humans like myself can't be near it when they set it off!
      Krang: You don't have to explain it to me. I invented it, remember?
      Shredder: I wasn't explaining it to you. (Points to the viewers) I was explaining it to them.

    • Bebop: Lightning gives me the willies!
      Shredder: I'll give you something worse than the willies if you drop that Mesmerizer!!
