Episode Summary


April covers the launch of a new system developed by the city to help clean up the city's garbage problems faster than ever: An automated computer, programmed to retrieve all forms of waste material, controls several garbage pick-up trucks from it's control center, Shredder sees this computer as an ideal weapon to use against the turtles..
Breaking into the lab where the computer is situated, the villian re-programs the c.p.u to capture TURTLES rather than retrieve litter...
However, things go awry when all the trucks pick up are any non-mutant turtle they lay their eyes upon..including the last of a soon to be exstinct race of turtles, just about to give birth..
Can the green machine save thier "distant cousins" from this terrapin-taker? Or will Shredder get what he orignally wanted after all?

  • Fair episode

    Shredder tries to get the Turtles by taking over a garbage system and bringing them. He unsuccessfully brings various turtles from the city, but then captures Donatello. Will the others get caught, too? This plot was rather lame. It didn't seem realistic.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Leonardo: (cuts away robotic hands) There, fellas... you're free!
      Raphael: That's terrific - you cut our climbing ropes too.

    • Leonardo: What a horrible development!
      Raphael: Yeah, but what a great cliffhanger!

    • Donatello: Forget firepower. We'll use that. (points to phone booth)
      Raphael: You're too late, Donatello. Another superhero already owns the patent on telephone booths.

    • Michelangelo: (driving as theme music plays) Woah. Isn't this music excellent?

    • Splinter: I don't like this. I have a feeling you turtles may be in great danger.
      Raphael: Hey, we laugh at danger.
      Donatello: Sure - we're heroes in a half-shell. Remember the theme song?

    • Shredder: Krang, don't you see? When the others come to rescue their friend, they'll be captured too. And then, with all this machinery at my command, I shall be invincible!
      Donatello: What a cornball! Who writes that guy's dialogue anyway?
      [...] Listen to me Shredder. This insanity has gone on too long, and it's got to stop!
      April: And he complains about Shredder's corny dialogue?

    • Bebop: (on the communicator) Hey Boss, this is me callin'.. Bebop!
      Shredder: Really? And all the time, I thought it was Santa Claus!

  • NOTES (0)


    • When Donatello points out the phone booth, Raphael replies "You're too late Donatello, another superhero already holds the patent on telephone booths." This is a reference to Superman, who would famously employ a phone box to change into his costume.
