Episode Summary

EDIT
Turtles of the Jungle
AIRED:
Professor Willard W. Willard, one of Donatello's idols, invents a Molecular Intensifier to control the growth of living things. Krang hears about it and sends Shredder to steal it.

While testing the Intensifier, the Professor accidentally zaps his pet monkey Jocko, who grows to 30 feet in height. He also zaps some roots which then grow enormous and begin to take over the city, turning it into a jungle.

Jocko gets attracted to April and starts chasing after her. To stop Jocko, the Professor zaps Donatello, making him 30 feet tall as well. Jocko gets angry at Donatello and they start fighting. The Turtles realize they have to stop Jocko before he and Donatello destroy the city. They urge the Professor to come up with a formula to reverse the Intensifier's effects. The Turtles finally reverse the Intensifier's effects. They stop Shredder from getting the device and return the City back to normal.moreless

  • Turtles of the jungle introduces donatelos idol who has created an growing ray.

    8.0
    Turtles of the Jungle was a solid average episode of this show. The character of Willard W. Willard, was amusing and showed that people do not really live up to others views at them. I thought that the King Kong parody was clever and it fit in with this episodes mood i believe. Speaking of this episodes mood it worked pretty well but was somewhat ruined by the fact previous episodes had high expectations to live up to. Al so upcoming episodes had a similair mood. I thought they should have made the technodrome in an even worse predicament. This episode i thought stil was good, with a strong conclsion although it had its weak points.moreless

    • April O'Neil: "Either giant gorilla's like to climb tall buildings, or he's seen the movie"
      Jocko, a pet monkey who has become a 30 foot tall gorilla, grabs onto April and starts to climb up a tall building with her in his grasps. The movie April is making a reference to that Jocko must have seen is King Kong, which is clearly what the whole episode as well as the situation April found herself in was spoofing.
