Episode Summary

While experimenting with a Matter Transporter in his secret hideout, Shredder sends Rocksteady and Bebop to a nearby garbage dump. Through a series of mishaps, Rocksteady and Bebop find themselves in the sewers and in the Turtles' Lair. After subduing them, but before interrogating them, Shredder "recalls" them to his secret hide-out. The Turtles watch Rocksteady and Bebop vanish into thin air. The Turtles contact April O'Neil and lure her with the promise of a great news story, but when she arrives she discovers that they need a new TV to replace the one that Rocksteady and Bebop destroyed during their encounter. It seems the "boys in green" are addicted to sci-fi movies and were in the middle of a marathon when Rocksteady and Bebop dropped in.moreless

  • Weird... but a good filler episode!!

    This is one of the few filler episodes of Season 2. It's like that because unlike previous episodes, no new characters (like Rex, Punk Frogs, or the Neutrinos) were in it, and it wasn't part of the Eye of Zarnov.

    Anyhow, April wants to find out more about Shredder, who has just made a transport device. April gets crossmutated with a cat, and turns into a cat herself! So the Turtles and Irma must stop April from killing Splinter before the show has a very "cat"aclysmic ending.moreless
