Episode Summary

The Monster Hunter
Still recuperating up at Casey's grandmother's farm, the turtles are feeling the sting of boredom. Luckily, a scientist known as the "Monster Hunter" has come to the area searching for a legendary monster — a legend rekindled by the sighting of a green monster lurking in the woods. ("I told you guys to stay out of the woods.") But, with Casey Jones tagging along, Michelangelo and Donatello decide to have a little fun with the Monster Hunter while Leonardo forges new swords with the help of Raphael. It all becomes a bit odd when the boys find some other large green creature besides themselves lurking about. Can they survive both monster and Monster Hunter?moreless

  • The turtles continue to heal at the farmhouse, but they are interrupted when a famous scientist comes to the farm looking for the notorious "Green Man" Don, Mike and Casey attempt to keep her busy while Raph helps Leo forge new katana.moreless

    This episode was very funny. The way Don and Mike got stuck in the liquid nitrogen chamber was funny. I laughed so hard when Casey said "I can't believe you guys almost got frozen." and Splinter says "I believe it." The moments between Raph and Leo were pretty touching as well. Leo seemed pretty shook up and Raph helped him through it was brotherly love at its finest. This episode is also where they decide it is time to go back to New York and face the Shredder again.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The turtles are walking around in the snow without any clothing. Shouldn't they be cold, especially since they're cold-blooded? Walking around in snow without protection would result in hypothermia.

    • Casey "hangs out" with Michelangelo and Donatello in this episode instead of usually hanging out with Raphael.

    • Leonardo must have blacksmithing skills, because without any of his katanas left (Shredder threw the pieces over a roof), he had to start from scratch.

    • In the worst case scenario, the liquid nitrogen would have shattered Donatello's leg when he kicked the door. At the very least, he would have suffered temporary paralysis of his leg and not been able to get very far.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Michelangelo: It is said that a terrible monster roams these woods. A creature from a forgotten age that brings terror and fear in the dark of night. Yes, there's a terrible monster roaming these woods, "And it's me, ooga booga!"

    • Casey: I can't believe you bozos walked right into a trap.
      Splinter: I believe it.

    • Michelangelo: (Chewing) What'd she say?
      Donatello: I couldn't hear her because somebody was crunching nuts in my ear.
      Michelangelo: (Chewing) What...?

    • April: Honestly we've lived up here forever and the strangest thing we've seen is the occasional moose. Isn't that right dear?
      Casey: uh, yeah.

    • (Casey comes in with snow on his shoes)
      April: (screams) CASEY JONES, I JUST MOPPED THE FLOOR!!!!

    • (To the Monster Hunter, who are talking about Casey)
      April: Don't mind him, he's the village idiot.
      Casey: Hey!

  • NOTES (1)


    • Steve Irwin

      From the Monster Hunter's Australian accent, it seems evident that she's a parody of Steve Irwin, the crocodile Hunter.
