Shredder (Oroku Saki)
Splinter (Hamato Yoshi)
After the Turtles slide down the rope and onto the neighboring rooftop, there are 2 Leonardos and 2 Raphaels. There is no sign of Michaelangelo or Donatello.
Thought the course of the series the Turtles were often referred to as amphibians, but in reality turtles are reptiles not amphibians.
When Hamato Yoshi finds the Turtles in the mutagen, it's coming out of a large hole in the wall. After the commercial break when Hamato goes over to wipe off the Turtles, they're in a puddle of the mutagen that's in the center of the room, with no trail leading towards a wall or the hole that it came from.
Shredder said himself that Turtles must not discover the Technodrome. But in the next scene, the Turtles clearly heard the voice that calls all Foots back in the Technodrome. How did Shredder let that happen?
The television April is broadcasted on is round-shaped, like an oval.
The baby Turtles had paws instead of flippers.
Leonardo puts his sword into a brown scabbard, but it's not seen in the rest of the episode.
Leonardo uses his sword and rope as a makeshift grappling hook, rather than using a proper one.
Channel 6 is free to air, you don't need cable.
When Leonardo picks up the hatch that the Foot Soldiers escaped through, there are two of him (the animation frame of Leonardo is left there, making it look like there are two Leonardos), and Michaelangelo is colored as Raphael! So there are five Turtles in the shot: two Leos, two Raphs, and a Don.
First in a long, ignominious history of voice flubs: when April tries to escape the Turtle's lair, Donatello blocks her path and accosts her--using Raphael's voice.
Solicitor: Fake teeth! Goofy noses! Get them here!
Raphael: Hey, April, why do humans want to make themselves dumber looking than they already are?
April: I really don't know, Michaelangelo.
Raphael: I'm Raphael.
April: Oh. Sorry!
April: Do you guys think of anything besides pizza?
Raphael: Not unless we have to.
April: This is great! I must be onto something really hot if they're trying to kill me!
Donatello: What is it, Raphael? A threatening note?
Raphael: Worse than that... It's the check!
Michaelangelo: Aw, she's no fun. She fainted.
April: (To Leonardo) Nice going, Raphael. Only half the people saw that!
Leonardo: I'm Leonardo.
April: Oh! Sorry.
Gangster (Rocksteady): Sign off time, April O'Neil! Grrrrr! (He raises his bat, but gets it knocked from his hands by a bo-staff.)
Figure 1 (Donatello): Chill out, home-boy!
(Another punk raises his sword, but gets disarmed by a sai blade)
Figure 2 (Raphael): Hey, watch with that thing, pal!
Gangster (Rocksteady): Oh, whoeever you are, you are dead!! (He grabs hold of the bo-staff but gets lifted off his feet and is send careering into the sewage.)
Ninja Chef: One sashimi pizza, and three whipped cream pizzas. Eat in good health.
April: (After the fight) I don't know who you are, but thanks!
(The four figures step out of the shadows and reveal themselves as humanoid talking turtles!)
April: (Shocked) You're..not human!
Raphael: Bingo! (To other Turtles) Oh, we're dealing with a real mind here!
April: You're, you're turtles!
Donatello: Yep! So, we are!
April: I can't handle this! (Faints)
Donatello: Ninja Dry Cleaners.
Leonardo: Ninja Shoe Repair.
April: Ninja Video Rental.
Raphael: Ninja Dentist, Ouch!!
Michaelangelo: Choco-Puffs for me!
Leonardo: We Turtles don't know the meaning of the word 'defeat.'
Michaelangelo: That's right! We never bothered to look it up in the dictonary.
Bebop and Rocksteady (as humans) may of made their first appearance in this episode, but they're names are unknown until the next episode, after they're mutated.
This episode was included on the TMNT VHS titled Heroes in a Halfshell.
This episode shows April buying the guys their trench coat outfits, which they often wear out on the streets in order not to be seen.
This episode includes one of the few times Shredder takes off his mask, as well as seeing Splinter human. This is the only episode where Bebop and Rocksteady aren't mutated without an illusion or a dream sequence taking place.
First appearances of Vernon and Burne Thompson.
Vernon appears much more friendly and non-competitive in this season, but would change into his arrogant chauvenistic persona in Season 2.
This episode was adapted in Archie Comics' TMNT Adventures (Mini-Series) Issue One
In this premiere season, Vernon is voiced by Pat Fraley, but would be regularly voiced by Peter Renaday permanently from "Return of the Shredder".
The ninja pizzeria chef whos served the Turtles their pizzas sounds a little bit like the cartoon character, Droopy.
The first season was never aired on terrestrial tv in the UK but was shown on The DJ Kat Show instead
This episode is avalible on the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles- Season One" DVD release.
A Human mutated into a Mouse makes more sense in that I can not believe a Mouse could have learned the Martial Arts, it would be impossible for that skill to defeat even from a novice Martial Artist. By making him human it stresses the fact that you have to learn from a Master not from a book, or for watching other's.
In the original comics Splinter started off a pet rat of Hamato Yoshi, a member of the Foot Clan. But here, Splinter started off as Hamato Yoshi himself.
April O'Neil was Baxter Stockman's assistant in the original comics, but here a Channel 6 News reporter with no ties to Stockman what so ever.
The two camera people are the same voices as Leonardo, and Raphael.
This episode is also called "Heroes in a Halfshell"
Raphael: Try again, Mr. Wizard!
This is a reference to the '80s educational TV series, Mr. Wizard.
Raphael: Here's lookin' at you, kid.
This is a very famous line from the movie Casablanca.
