  • Undoubtably, my favourite episode!

    Wow. I nearly cried a couple times during this episode, and I am usually not the emotional type!

    Leo has always been my favourite character, and even though I knew he would be okay in the end, I was still worried for him. All throughout the episode I kept hoping he would wake up. Of course, he does in the end. More dramatic I guess XD

    The flashbacks were wonderful to watch. It was neat to see the four as kids! Donny still loved building gadgets, in this case a remote control car, Mikey loved to be annoying when he was being ignored and Raph was still a hothead. So much for phases! I think my favourite flashback was Master Splinter's. Tricking Leo into getting over his fear of heights was a brillent idea, in my opinion. I wish someone could have done that for me!

    This was one of the first episodes I saw, so I didn't understand why Baxter looked the way he did, witha mechanical arm, odd wheelchair-thing and a missing eye. Now that I know, I cannot help but feel sorry for the guy. Sort of. Fooling the Shredder defenitly was not a good idea.

    At the end, I cheered when Leo woke up. As I said before, I knew it was coming but I still get a happy glow whenver I watch it. All around great episode!moreless
  • In English: This episode is one my favourite! Leonardo is my favourite Turtle! I can´t write in English very much. I´m from Finland and only twelve years old! I hope you understand. Suomeksi: Tämä jakso on yksi suosikeistani. Leonardo on lempi kilpparini.moreless

    I don´t understand what does this mean. I don´t speak or write English very well. But I hope two things: this my writing doesent mean nothing bad, and everyone understand what I want to tell. But this episode, It´s great! Baby-Turtles are so cute and lovely! I´ve got this episode on video. But not all episodes. :( In there, in TV.com, need instructios in Finish! I don´t unerstand enything over here. Maybe a little something, but I scared, maybe this is something, what I don´t want to say. Thats why, I´m sorry, if I´m hurt somebody. But this episode, Thats sooooooooo great!!!!! :Dmoreless
  • Chibi Turtles!! Oh, and hope you feel better, Leo.

    I liked hearing them recount stories of the past as (as Mikey calls them later) turtle tots, or as I like to call 'em, chibi turtles. Basically, same voice actors but on helium. Seriously. But it did make 'em sound cuter. Mikey especially was really funny. And I agree with him, "it sucks being cold-blooded." Man, I'm WARM-blooded and I'd be needing more than just a blanket in the back of that truck.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • First time in this series that Leonardo was shown using his brother's weapon. In this instance, it's Michelangelo's nunchakus.

    • Baxter came back after an absence with a new look. He has an eyepatch, a robotic arm, and he's in a wheelchair because of the incident when he failed Shredder in The Way of Invisibility.

    • The red ribbon that a Mouser picks up and gives to Baxter turns out to be the ribbon that Raph ties to his sais.

    • Wouldn't the ribbon the mouser found be burned into ashed. Everything was burned down, how could something that small and flammable not be burned?

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Shredder: My revenge is complete. My hated enemies thought they had destroyed me, but I am not so easily destroyed. I was nearly biding my time, awaiting the right moment for my ninja forces to strike, and they struck hard. They herded my enemies to me like sheep to the slaughter, and even though allies foolishly came to their aid, my enemies were forced to make a cowardly retreat, but vengeance was mine, nonetheless. At last, the turtles are no more!

    • Baxter Stockman: Fool. You let your guard down the moment you leaved your enemies vanquished. Soon, the technological secrets locked within this artifact will give me power beyond the reckoning. And that's when Baxter Stockman stops taking punishment and starts dishing it out. (laughs sinisterly)

    • Baxter Stockman: (after one of his Mousers finds Raphael's bandana) If I can't find any evidence, I'll just have to make some evidence.

    • (Casey drives up to his Grandma's farmhouse)
      Casey: You're gonna love my grandma's farmhouse. It's gonna be great.
      April: (sees the run-down farmhouse) Great does not even begin to describe this place.

    • Baxter: (to Shredder) So THAT'S what you look like when you're pleased... I always wondered...

    • Little Leo: How about another round of follow the leader as in back home?
      Little Raph: Lead the way!

    • (after Leonardo saves Donatello from the floodwaters)
      Little Don: What? You forgot to save the car?

    • Casey: Okay, so the place got a little run down when Grandma passed away.
      Michelangelo: When was that, in the Jurassic era?
      Casey: Dude, you live in a sewer.

    • (Leonardo pins down Michelangelo.)
      Michelangelo: Was I disturbing you?

  • NOTES (4)


    • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987)

      The preteen turtles bear a resemblance to what they looked like in the old cartoon series.
