Episode Summary

EDIT
Turtlemaniac
AIRED:
When a series of burglaries occur, all of them involving thefts of Turtle memorabilia, the Turtles investigate. April's apartment gets broken into, but just as the burglar is driving away, she takes down the license plate number on the vehicle. The police give her an address and she and Irma go to investigate. They discover that Monroe Q. Flem, the manufacturer of rare gasses and a billionaire, is a collector of everything and anything having to do with the Turtles. When April and Irma go to the mansion, April goes in,leaving Irma in the van. As soon as she sets foot on the grounds, Flem captures her.

Meanwhile, the Turtles get worried when they can't contact April so they go to her apartment. The place is deserted when they get there. After looking around, they discover an address which they assume is the one April got from the license plate. They search for April, thinking that she might be in danger. When they arrive at the mansion, they get captured by Flem when he sprays them with stun gas. When they come to, they discover that Flem wants to dip them in wax for his wax display at the mansion. The Turtles try to free April, but they get sprayed with a freezing gas.

Outside the mansion, Irma realizes that April is not coming back, so she goes in to resuce her. She finds the Turtles frozen and helpless. By turning up the temperature, she revives the Turtles. The heat in the mansion melts Flem's wax statues leaving just metallic robots which he programs to attack the Turtles. They fight off Flem and his Waxmation Warriors and resuce April. Flem gets arrested and all the Turtle merchandise gets returned to the owners.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (7)

      • When Flem freaks out the second time about his wax figures melting, it's the same repeated clip from the first time when the figures began melting.

      • When Donatello says, "Relax, its wax! We got it out from Flem;s museum!", he's using Leonardo's voice.

      • In the scene where the turtles are walking through the museum looking for April, Donatello begins to speak and he's using Raphael's voice. Halfway through his line, the screen changes to a view showing all the turtles and Donatello and Raphael have switched places with Raphael continuing the line as if he had been saying it from the beginning!

      • While Monroe Q. Flem is saying "Oh, my priceless turtles are here! Soon, my collection will be complete!" His mouth doesn't open for the first half of that line being said.

      • Flem seems to know the interior of the Turtles' lair

      • When the background shot of the wax statues are shown on Flem's video monitor, they are coloured in all grey

      • When the other Turtles play the "two-Splinters" gag on Michaelangelo at the end of the episode, they all seem to get chuckles from it. Strangely, even the wax state of Splinter is laughing!

    • QUOTES (2)

      • April: You have gas for everything.
        Flem: Wait until you see what's in store for your friends. That's really a gas!
        April: (mutters under breath) Getting gas means never listening to bad jokes. (Flem hangs April over the wax cauldron.) I was just kidding about the bad jokes.
        (Turtles wake up.)
        Leonardo: Flem, what are you doing?!
        Flem: I've found a new, advanced way to make wax figures last. If it works on O'Neil, you four are next.
        April: No! I just had my legs waxed!
        Michelangelo: Major bummer! We're all going to be turtle waxed!

      • (When Raphael's sai is stuck in the robot)
        Raphael: Hey, gimme back my sai!
        (He kicks the robot)
