Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Michelangelo swings onto the bus, he releases his grappling hook. Later, he somehow has it back. This is either a continuity error similar in the original series with the Turtles' weapons or Michelangelo must have a spare.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Mikey: (in the opening scene) No, you haven't tuned in to the wrong show, that's me, Mikey, under the cape and cowl. See that big flying dude up in the sky? That's Silver Sentry. He's a superhero. We're on our first superhero team-up tonight, he just dosen't know it yet. You's think an earthbond turtle like me would have trouble keeping up with a guy who can soar through the sky like an eagle and you know what? You'd be right.

    • Raph: What's this? The Ninjustice League?
      Don: More like the Shelltastic Four...
      Leo: The Legion of Sewer Heroes!!
      (Turtles laugh)

    • (The Turtles watch the Sentry's interview.)
      Leonardo: (astonished) Mikey... was that you the Siver Sentry was talking about?
      Michelangelo: (after a pause) Guys, I'm a turtle, not a titan.

    • Malignus: The fool... doesn't he know I always have an escape plan...
      (Bumps into Michelangelo)
      Michelangelo: Hi! Remember me?!

    • Michelangelo: Ugh... Fight it Silver Sentry! You don't really want to hurt me!
      Malignus: (laughing) But that's the beauty of it! He really DOESN'T want to hurt you! But he can't help himself!

    • Mikey: We save thed the day! We should be recognized like the Silver Sentry!
      Don: Mikey, we're ninjas. Stealh and darkness? Helloo...

    • Citizen: Help! Police! I'm being attacked by a costumed freak!
      Michelangelo: Attacked? Dude, you were like this close to being roadkill!

    • Michelangelo: Note to self: Rethink the shield.

  • NOTES (4)


    • ==Superhero Teams==
      A few superhero teams from DC and Marvel Comics are referenced when Leo and Raph make fun of Mikey's drawings and name a few suggestions which are parodies: The Ninjustice League (Justice League), The Shelltastic Four (Fantastic Four), and The Legion of Sewer Heroes (The Legion of Super Heroes).

    • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987)

      Michelangelo's usage of a grappling hook here instead of his nunchakus is an homage to the original series when Michelangelo began to use a grappling hook with his original weapon in the third and fourth (1989 and 1990) seasons and althogether used just his grappler from 1991 (fifth season) and on.

    • Spider-Man

      Malignus is modelled on the Green Goblin character from the Spider-Man movie.
