  • They're ba-ack...

    That's...just...nasty. If I were either one of them I'd kill myself.

    Renet kinda reminds me of Rini from Sailor Moon. Going through time, kind of a whiny brat, falling out of the sky and landing on people...yeah. This sets up the arc for when Ultimate-Draco gets their revenge, but I really do hate these episodes where stuff just happens and the Turtles get dragged into it.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • After steeling the time scepter, Savanti Romero causes Donatello's bo staff to revert back into the stage where it was simply a gnarled, shapeless, branch. In the next scene, however, Donatello has his bo back!

    • Shouldn't Raphael have been horribly burned after slicing his way out of the giant roach's stomach? He was even still covered in its stomach juices!

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Leo: It's time for your bath, Mikey.
      Mikey: Hey, no fair. I took a bath last week.

    • Don: Mikey, why are you still wearing your armor?
      Mikey: It makes me feel nice and safe.
      Leo: Mikey, take that stuff off!
      Mikey: Oh all right!
      (Savanti uses magic to turn ordinary cockroaches into giant monster cockroaches)
      Mikey: Oh sure! NOW I take of my armor! Thanks a lot guys!

    • Mikey: How come all this weird stuff always happen to us?! I mean, we were just minding our own business when WHAM that time lady fell out of the sky right on top of us. Now we're stuck here! And we've got to go to that creepy looking place. It just dosen't seem fair!
      Raph: You done?
      Mikey: Yeah, I'm done. Let's go save Renet.

    • Lord Simultaneous: (to Savanti) I thought that banishing you to the Middle Ages would be a good idea, but OH NO! Say bye-bye, Savanti! (banishes him to Prehistoric times)

    • Donatello: Dusting? This was all about DUSTING?

    • Mikey: Um, I'm glad we're home, but why do I always end up on the bottom?

    • Michelangelo: Welcome to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Roach Motel, where giant, killer, roaches check in...
      Raphael: But they don't check out.

  • NOTES (11)


    • ::: ::
      This episode seems to be a riff on the movie "Time Bandits." In the film, the heroes steal a map that will allow them to travel anywhere in time (with mixed results). Hot on their heals is the the Lord of Time (AKA God) who appears as a giant Oz like head. Much like in this episode, when the Lord of Time finally catches up to them, he turns out to be a harmless old man.

    • na: na
      The castle in this episode bares a striking resemblance to Castle Grayskull, a noted location from the various incarnations of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

    • Men in Black

      The scene where Raphael is eaten by a huge cockroach and then comes bursting out of its stomach, is vertually identical to when Agent K from Men in Black is swallowed by an alien cockroach. After retrieving his gun, K then comes exploding out of the cockroach's chest, covered in goo, just like Raph.
