Episode Summary

The Adventures of Rhino-Man (A.K.A .Rhino-Man)
J. Gordon Hungerdunger, a Texas millionaire, is holding a "best super-hero" contest. The winner of the contest will receive the humongous Malaprop Diamond. No one is aware of it, but Hungerdunger is using the contest as a diversion so that he can put a zombie-making chemical into the city's water supply. The malevolent millionaire figures that if he can get the citizens under his control, he can easily take over the city.

Krang sees April's news report about the contest and gets an idea on how he can use the diamond to get out of Dimension X. He could use the diamond to focus a heat ray powerful enough to cut the Technodrome loose from the asteroid. Shredder decides to make super-heroes out of Bebop and Rocksteady so that they will win the diamond.

The Turtles discover from April and Irma what is happening to the city. They all cannot figure out why Hungerdunger would hold a contest like that.

The Turtles spot Bebop and Rocksteady (now calling themselves Rhino-Man and Mighty Hog) and can't believe their eyes when they see the so called "super-heroes" stop a robbery.

After Hungerdunger's men deposit the chemical into the water, he decides that it's time to end the contest. Hungerdunger brings Rhino-Man and the Mighty Hog to his mansion so that they can collect the diamond.

Meanwhile, while the Turtles are at the Channel Six building they discover what Hungerdunger is up to. They noticed that April, Irma and Vernon turned zombie-like and started saying Hungerdunger's name after they drank water. The Turtles rush to the mansion to see if they can find an antidote before the whole city is turned into zombies. They get there just as Hungerdunger is trying to serve water to Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady. The TMNT stop Hungerdunger and get the antidote and put it into the city's water, turning everybody back to normal. Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady manage to get away with the diamond, but discover that it is a fake when they try to use it.
