episode trivia

5 Nano

The Turtle try to dismantle the giant Nano robot with a trash compactor, which was similar on how to destroy the Terminator robots in the movie The Terminator.  Then the Turtles dump the giant Nano robot into hot steal, which was how the Terminator robots were killed in Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

At the beginning of the episode, the Nano robots form a shape of a Poke'ball from the 4Kids animation series Pokemon.  [View Clip]

The Nano robots resemble Dregg's microbots from the 1987 animation TV series, that change shape and build/dismantle machines in short seconds.

Michelangelo says "I know it's been said before, but I got a bad feeling about this" which a character says this line in each of the Star Wars movies.

6 Darkness On The Edge Of Town

The protective glove looks to be for a left hand, giving the idea that Shredder is left-handed, considering he's the one who forged the Sword Of Tengu.

This episode appears in the first 2003 video game, but that level is titled "Tengu."

7 The Way Of Invisibility

Baxter has shown that he paid the price for the failure of the mousers, because his left eye is missing.

Casey and Rapahel exchange insults, just like Casey and Donatello did in the first Ninja Turtle movie, but in alphabetical order.  [View Clip]

Michelangelo says "And that's how they defeated the house that wouldn't leave."  This is a skit from Saturday Night Live based on a house that overstays its welcome.

Casey says "cloaking devices.  Are they Klingons?"  This is a reference to the movie series Star Trek at which Klingons are a race of beings that have the ability to cloak their spaceships.

Leonardo mentions Bushido after Casey mispronounces it.  Bushido is the Code Honor of Samurai, not Ninja.  This is a reference to The Code Of Bushido.

8 Fallen Angel

The episode title is based on Lucifer, a fallen angel from the Bible.

Casey tells Angel that the warehouse is on the corner of Eastman and Laird, named after the Ninja Turtle character creators.

Michelangelo presses a remote control and the Battle Shell goes nuts.  This is a reference to the James Bond (007) Tomorrow Never Dies, when BMW 750iL drives insainly around the airport.

9 Garbageman

This episode is based off an animated episode of Batman "The Forgotten" about a slob kidnapping homeless people and forcing them into slavery.

The line Leonardo says "it's quite, too quiet" comes from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II Secret Of The Ooze, in the junkyard scene and Leonardo says "it's quiet, a little too quiet."  [View Clip]

10 Shredder Strikes (1)

The two mysterious guardians look at their madallions after talking to the council, and a symbol representing the Utroms can be seen.

The armor Shredder wears is a redesigned from the old series, and the two movies he appears in.

This episode and its second part is based on issue #1 of the original comic book series.

11 Shredder Strikes (2)

This episode along with its first part is based on Issue #1 of the original comic book series.

Michelangelo calls Shredder the "Shredinator" at which he's referencing The Terminator movies.  [View Clip]

Splinter defeats Shredder first, just like in the first original movie.  [View Clip]

12 Unconvincing Turtle Titan

The first episode where a turtle fights and operates alone.  In this case it's Michelangelo.

This episode is based off Issue #15 from the original comic book series.

The part where Michelangelo uses a grappling hook comes from the original 1987 Ninja Turtle animated TV series.

Malignus is modelled as Green Goblin from the movie Spiderman.

13 Notes From The Underground (1)

Fox Box used the promo title "Triple Play" for this episode and its second and third parts.

The episode title comes from a novella by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and the main characters in the book resemble the same characteristics from "The Entity."

Michelangelo says the line "think a lot faster, or we're going to whind up a lot thinner," which comes from a quote from Star Wars IV A New Hope in the garbage compactor scene.  [View Clip]

This episode appears in the 2003 video game.

14 Notes From The Underground (2)

Fox Box used the promo title "Triple Play" with this episode.

Michelangelo says "I'm not odd, I'm eccentric," which is a variation from the movie Speed when Howard Payne says "I'm not crazy; poor people are crazy.  I'm eccentric."

This epsiode appears in the 2003 video game.

15 Notes From The Underground (3)

It's learned that the Turtle's Lair is formely used by the Entity subterranean to study human life on Earth.  Ironically, they are presented as beings of Earth, which seperates connection with the Utrom race.

Fox Box used the promo title "Triple Play" with this episode.

It's learned that Quarry is a female.

This episode appears in the 2003 video game.

16 The King

April is watching the same monster movie Michelangelo does in the previous first part episode.

Cartoon Network accidentally aired this episode after airing the episode Triceraton Wars in their weekday Miguzi lineup.  Normally episodes are aired in cronological order, and Triceraton Wars is the fifth episode of season 2.

Peter Laird was so satisfied with this episode, the paid a little extra to have this episode extended, which is available on DVD.  Reruns of this episode include this new ending, which shows Donatello walking around a little more after exiting the portal feeling very fustrated with Kirby being gone.

Donatello's anti-gravity gun is based on an old sketch of him firing a Mac-10 machine gun.

This episode is based on the "Donatello Issue #1" of the original comic book series.

The name of this episode comes from an artist character of a famed comic book series Jack "King" Kirby. at which this episode's dedication to him shows up at the end.

When the turtles hide from the Chinese Food delivery man, Michelangelo hides by a chair, and replaced with a purple stuffed bear.  This idea comes from the first original movie where Danny spots Michelangelo hiding under a table and replaced with a stuffed panda bear.  [View Clip]

One of the monsters Kirby draws resembles Wingnut from episode "Zach And The Alien Invaders" of the original animated TV series.  [View Clip]

A warrior resembling Thor says "you shall not pass" comes from the movie The Lord Of The Rings when Gandalf the Grey says when about to battle Balrog, a creature of flame and shadow sent to kill him.

Due to its appearance, it is clear that the city which the heroes were guarding is based on the Marvel Comics version of Asgard, the home of the Mighty Thor. In the comics, Asgard is reached by a rainbow bridge, and has similar architecture. (Also, the heroes themselves look similar to the Asgardians, and one even uses a throwing hammer like Thor does.)

Being a tribute to Jack Kirby, the inhabitants of the fantasy world beyond the portal resemble Kirby's own New Gods which in turn were loosely based on old Norse Mythology--including the the rainbow bridge and a Thor-like hammer-wiedling warrior. Any similarities to Marvel's Asgard, Thor, etc. are unavoidable since they are also based on old Norse Mythology. Finally, the monsters attacking the human-like inhabitants are similar to Jack Kirby's parademons which are an integral part of the New Gods mythos--all of which eventually being absorbed into the more popular Superman mythos.

"Life at best is bittersweet", the message on Kirby's final note to Donatello is an actual Jack Kirby quote. In the final issue (#18) of Jack Kirby's "Mister Miracle" (Originally published in 1974 and recently reprinted in trade paperback form under the title "Jack Kirby's Fourth World"), it's Darkseid's last line after he fails to prevent Scott Free and Barda's wedding However, he does succeed in driving them to flee from Earth to New Genesis as soon as vows are exchanged. The full quote was, "The ceremony had deep feeling but little joy. But then life at best is bittersweet."

17 Shredder Strikes Back (1)

Leonardo battled 41 sword-weilding Foot Ninjas, 3 Foot-Tech Ninjas, Hun, 4 Elite Ninja, and Shredder all by himself.

This is the first time Leonardo's swords break.

Fox Box used the promo title "Shredder Double-Header" for this episode and its second part.

This episode is based on "Leonardo Issue #1" of the original comic book series.

Many events are from the first original Ninja Turtle movie: Leonardo battling the Foot on a rooftop (it's Raphael in the movie), being thrown through April's apartment window, the fight in the apartment/antique shop, Casey Jones joins in on the fight, and April's apartment and antique shop being burned down.  [View Clip]

The title of this episode Shredder Strikes Back comes from the title Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back.

18 Shredder Strikes Back (2)

Character producers Kevin Eastman and Peter Lairds, as cops, return in this episode.  [View Clip]

This episode is based on issue #10 of the comic book series.

Casey says "where's the babe?  You okay, babe" which is a line that Casey says in the first Ninja Turtle movie during the apartment/shop fight.  [View Clip]

Fox Box used the promo title "Shredder Double-Header" for this episode and its first part.

19 Tale Of Leo

This is the first time Leonardo used one of his brother's weapons.  In this case, Michelangelo's nunchuks.  [View Clip]

Baxter's appearance has chance once again: eye patch on his left eye, a robotic arm, and floating wheel chair, because of his punishment back in The Way Of Invisibility.

The red ribbon a mouser gives to Baxter for him to fake the Turtle's autopsy is the same red ribbon Raphael uses for his sais.

This is the first time one of the turtles is seen shedding tears (crying).  In this case, Raphael.

This episode is based off Issue #11 of the original comic book series.

The idea of running to an old farmhouse in the middle of nowhere in Massachusetts after a battle against the Foot that goes very bad comes from the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie.

20 Monster Hunter

This time Casey hangs out with Michelangelo and Donatello.  Usually he hangs with Raphael.

Considering the monster hunter's Austrailian accent, she's a prodagy of Steve Irwin.

21 Return To New York (1)

When Donatello types in the code to enter the lair, it sounds like the main theme of the series.

This episode is based off Issue #19 of the original comic book series.

22 Return To New  York (2)

Shredder made three genetic clones of himself: a four arm, a lobster claw, and a shorty.

The first appearance of the Mystical Ninjas.  Each of them represent the different elements of Earth: earth, fire, water, wind, and metal.  [View Clip]

Splinter says the line "in the words of a great master, it ain't over until it's over," which comes from the line that baseball player Yogi Berra said.

This episode appears on both video games Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

23 Return To New York (3)

The Sword Of Tengu is destroyed in this episode, but doesn't make its final appearance in this episode, because it shows up in flashbacks in Secret Origins.

Baxter's armor suit is based off the story-arc from Volume 2 comic book series issues #1 - #9 where Baxter replaces his body with a battle armor suit.

This episode is based off comic issue #21 of the original comic book series.

In Issue #21, Leonardo actually kills Shredder when he decapitates him, and the Foot remains active, but in this episode Shredder later keeps returning.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus and the first 2003 video game.

24 Lone Raph And Cub

A reporter captured some gangs on camera, which is what April did in the original series.

The gang's leader mentions a big gang war, which forshadows the season two episode City At War.

On the "Search For Splinter" volume on DVD, Peter Laird mentions in an interview that this episode title comes from the Japan Anime Lone Wolf And Cub.  Peter Laird also happens to be a fan of that anime manga.  And ironically, in Tyler's flashback, mentions what his favorit movie is, which is Lone Wolf And Cub.

The gang is called The Mob, which is a prodagy of Italian-American crime syndicates which deal in murder, stealing, drug trafficing, smuggling, and protection in underground urban citites.

Raphael says the line "an old guy once said anyone who hates dogs and kids can't be called bad" at which comedian W.C Fields says.

25 Search For Splinter (1)

This episode is based on Issue #4 of the original comic book series.

TCRI stands for "Technical Cosmic Research Institute" just like in the original comic book series.  However, the initals TGRI from the second movie stands for "Technical Global Research Institute."

Casey shouts out "gimmie toaster or give me death," at which is similar that Patrick Henry said when he said "give me liberty or give me death."

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

26 Search For Splinter (2)

Michelangelo recalls the Matrix trilogy, when he points out the stasis pods in the chamber the Turtles find Splinter in.

One of the workers said "But you touched Newman, and he touched that guy in the lobby," and the other worker annoyingly said "Newman."  This is a reference to the show Seinfeld at which Jerry Seinfeld says "Newman" in a way to show he's annoyed.  [View Clip]

This episode is part of the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

27 The Fugitoid (AKA: Turtles In Space (1))

The alien writing on the WANTED poster of Professor Honeycutt and the Turtles look like WNTD.

The ninja rats and turtle sensei speak alien language in this episode, but they appeared in the second video game Battle Nexus, where they speak English.

This episode is part of the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

This along with the other four episode parts is based on comic issue #5 and #6 of the original comic series.

28 Trouble With Triceratrons (AKA: Turtles In Space (2))

The title comes from an episode title of Star Trek "Trouble With Tribbles."

If you look careully, you can see a color altered Han Solo and Chewbacca from Star Wars IV: A New Hope.  In fact, it's a reinactment of the cantina scene from that movie.  [View Clip]

This episode appears in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Battle Nexus video game.

29 The Big House (AKA: Turtles In Space (3))

Instead of oxygen, the Triceratons breath a mixture of nitrogen and sulfur.

Raphael battlecries "Spoon" which is the same warcry from the TV series Tick.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

30 The Arena (AKA: Turtles In Space (4))

Draximus's first appearance

The gladiators say "we who are about to fight salute you" which is the same cry out that the gladiators shout out from Ancient Rome "Ceaser, we who are about to die salute you!"

This episode also appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus at which is a boss level.

31 Triceraton Wars (AKA: Turtles In Space (5))

When Michelangelo says "don't get cocky, kid" he's referring to what Han Solo said to Luke Skywalker in Star Wars IV A New Hope while battling TIE Fighters.  [View Clip]

Michelangelo says the line "Mr. Sulu.  Ahead, warp Factor," which is a common line used in Star Trek.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

32 Secret Origins (1)

Baxter Stockman returns as his head in a robot spider, at which is his only appearance this way.

The title of this three-part episode is derived from the DC comic book title "Secret Files and Origins."  The "Secret Origins" name was used by the Justice League animated series.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

33 Secret Origins (2)

Donatello says the line "ladies and gentlemen, I give you Neo.  I mean Leo."  This is a reference to The Matrix movies. In those films, the hero Neo had the abilty to manipulate the reality of the virtual reality world of The Matrix. In this episode, Leonardo was easily able to manipulate the Utron's VR world (using his mind to will the Sword of Tengu into his hands), thus making him similar to Neo in this case.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

34 Secret Origins (3)

There are references from the 1987 animated TV series: Krang has a short cameo role as an Utrom when the Utroms are escaping, April dressed all in yellow acting like a TV reporter for Channel 6 news.

There are pivotal points in this episode: Shredder is an evil Utrom, Hamato Yoshi was a guardian to the Utroms, Leatherhead's introduction is foreshadowed.

The general seen in this and the last episode is a caricature of former NYC mayor David Dinkins, probably best known for the ridiculously oversized blue helmet he wore while riding atop a tank several years ago following some disaster or another on the east coast.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

Michelangelo says the line, "Get it off! Or there's gonna be a tiny Shredder alien busting out of Raph's chest!"  This quote is based off of the facehuggers in the Alien series. After the egg had hatched, the facehugger would attach itself to a human or another creature and implant an alien embryo inside it. Once developed enough, the alien would burst out of the creature's chest.

Michelangelo screams "It's the prisoner, dude!"  The Prisoner was a classic series starring Patric Mcgoohan in the late 60's, the contraversial series involved an agent of M.I.5 being imprioned in a village by a secret organisation, and kept there until he revealed why he resigned.  The final episode "Fallout" dealt with the agent discovering the identity of his nemesis, Number One, only to discover he was...himself, something he had not expected, The Shredder is revealed also, in this epiosde, to be something other than what he has been shown to be to the viewer.

35 The Ultimate Ninja

This episode took the place of "Reflections", originally scheduled to air on Febuary 7th.

This episode appears on the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

36 Reflections

Donatello points out that if it wasn't for Shredder crashing the Utroms' ship almost a millennium ago, they wouldn't exist. Because the Utroms were on Earth courtesy of the Shredder, the built the TCRI plant. Then they developed the mutagen, which was dropped into the sewers. If the Utroms weren't trying to find a way back home because of the Shredder's meddling, the Turtles would never have been accidently mutated.

This is the first clipshow episode of the series.

Obviously, Michelangelo's "Game Dude" is a Game Boy. However, it seems that 4Kids didn't feel like asking Nintendo for permission to use this name.

Michelangelo says the famous line, "what you talkin' about Willis?"  This is a famous line that Arnold Jackson (played by Gary Coleman) says in almost every episode to his brother Willis Jackson (played by Tod Bridges) in the 1978 - 1986 TV series Diff'rent Strokes.

Michelangelo says and mimics Darth Vader's voice "join me, Leonardo.  I am your father" which is line  said by Darth Vader at the end of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, but it is tweaked a bit.

37 Modern Love - The Return Of Nano

In the end, the Turtles gave April the stolen money that the crook stolen in a pervious episode. With the money, April was able to rebuild her shop.

The Eastman and Laird cartoon counterparts made a cameo at the end, arresting the crook.

Harry says the line "like taking candy from a bunch of babies," which is a prodagy of the idiom "it's just like taking candy from a baby!"

38 What A Croc!

The Turtles finally return to their old lair after abandoning it in A Better Mouse Trap. Leatherhead's turned what's left of it into his own personal laboratory.

April moved back into her apartment in this episode, partly from living with the Turtles and her gain of adequate money to rebuild it.

Baxter Stockman makes his appearance in this episode as a head in a glass jar encased in an Utrom exoskeleton. He will use the exoskeleton as a body in City at War, but in a different manner.

The Turtlebot was actually an upgrade of Metalhead, a robot created by Shredder and Krang in the original series to destroy the Turtles. The original Turtlebot, Metalhead, had personalities of others.  Metalhead, only christened as the Evil Turtlebot, was featured in the 2003 video game. This Turtlebot was the precursor to the one in the show, being able to predict and copy the players' moves.

Leatherhead is similar to Hank McCoy, A.K.A. the Beast. Both are scientific geniuses cursed with a beastial exterior and rage.

There appear to be several references to Dr. Connors from Spider-man combined in Leatherhead: an intelligent mind and reptilian exterior. Another one that may be less noticeable is his lab coat. One of the arms of the coat appears to have been ripped off and loosely sewn back on. Dr. Connors became the Lizard in an effort to replace his lost arm.

39 Return To The Underground

Quarry's real name is revealed to be Sydney after the Turtles test the crystalized serum on Quarry.

Before the mindless Quarry attacks, the Turtles find a room with several more crystalized ancient residents of the city. This small addition is not addressed again in this episode, but will be much later in The Entity Below.

Donatello introduces his Turtle Tunneler.

40 City At War (1)

First Appearance of Karai, Shredder's Second-In-Command and adopted daughter, Karai has been a long standing member of the MIRAGE comics for many years, although she first appeared long after Saki's demise.

This is the first episode where the Foot Elite Ninja actually talk.

Baxter Stockman's head is on the Utrom's exo-suit (where the head goes) instead of the stomach cavity.

Raphael says the line "just your friendly turtleman."  This is a play on the line "Just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!" from the Spider-Man comics and movie.

Leoardo says the line "you look more like Raph-zan, lord of the jungle to me," and Raphael responds "and what does that make you?  Jane or Cheeta?"  This is a reference to Tarzan.

Donatello says "time to try one of my favorit stunts."  Donatello is trying to spin around on his bo staff to attack a lot of similiar looking mobsters. Neo pulls the same trick in Matrix Reloaded. Unlike Donatello, Neo is successful.

This episode and its two other parts are based on comic book issues #50 - #62 title City At War.

41 City At War (2)

The way Karai held Leo hostage at the end of this episode by pinning him down and pointing a sword at him is exactly how the Shredder held Leo in the first Ninja Turtles movie to force the other three to surrender.  [View Clip]

Michelangelo says "you got it, Hoss."  Hoss is the name of one of the main characters in the western rancher show Bonanza. Donatello wanted Michelangelo to 'herd' the robot over towards the electrical lines.

Michelangelo says, "Captain, America, eat your heart out!"  Captain America has been a staple of Timley/Marvel Comics since 1941. A patriotic super soldier, Captain America has fought in both World War II and present day with only his shield and his courage.

This episode is based on issues #50 - #62.

42 City At War (3)

Hun for some reason has a grudge against Karai.

At the end of the episode, The Shredder is seen being re-generated by Worms, this is exactly how Shredder was ressurected in the classic MIRAGE Comics.

This episode is based on comic book issues #50 - #62 of the MIRAGE comic book series.

43 Junklantis

The episode centers on Michelangelo and Donatello.

Michelangelo sings, "Rule Britannia! Britannia rules the waves! I don't know the rest of this stupid song!"  Rule Britannia is a patriotic song sung in the United Kingdom.

Michelangelo says "To the Shell-Sub, boy wonder."  This is a Batman reference, specifically the 1960s series when Batman had a Bat-everything. 'Boy wonder' refers to Batman's young sidekick, Robin.

Michelangelo says to Donatello, "aren't you too short for a junk trooper?"  This is a reference to the line from Star Wars Episode IV. When Luke and Han show up to save Leia, she immediately says, "Aren't you a little short to be a storm trooper?"

Michelangelo says "I feel like Jonah on this freak whale thingy."  This is a reference to the biblical story in which God tested a man after he is swallowed by a large fish, which in modern times has been replaced by a whale.

44 The Golden Puck

This is another time when we see the turtles without their usual masks.  [View Clip]

When Mikey says "Room service! More towels for you!" in a foreign girly voice, this is similar to David Spade's character in Tommy Boy when he is trying to get Chris Farley to open the door to their hotel room.  [View Clip]

45 Rogue In The House (1)

It's learned that Earth's atmosphere (or any oxygen-rich air) affects Triceratrons much like paint fumes if inhaled: it addles their brains and makes them hallucinate, but too much will eventually kill them, hence why Zog confused the Turtles and Splinter for his superior officers (and one of the Turtle's sewer cycles as a Fugitoid) once his gas mask was damaged in their encounter.

The Triceraton, whose name we found out is Zog, returns from Secret Origins (1) and sees the Turtles as his commanding officers as a result of breathing toxic oxygen.

The 'Foot Gunner' from the TMNT Video game makes its first appearance in this episode as the 'Foot Mech.

This level appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

The show's running gag seems to be showing less and less of Baxter Stockman. He is now just a floating brain and eyeball in a tank of solution with a mike (and a volume contol knob) attached.

Baxter's new appearance is very similar to Robocop's nemesis Cain in Robocop 2. In the end of the movie, the only thing which was left from Cain was his spine, brain, and eye. They were all gathered in a one big jar.

46 Rogue In The House (2)

This episode is the final level in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus.

In the videogame counterpart seen in TMNT 2: Battle Nexus, The ending is nearly identical: After Zog sacrifices himself to defeat the Shredder, Slashuur comes in and teleports Splinter and the Turtles to the dock, Slashuur bids farewell until they fight in the Battle Nexus. Shredder being rescued was not seen, but Stockman rising up from the watery depths was slightly different, except he says "You fools... I'm still alive!" and he does his evil laugh as he floats towards NY.

Zog dies in this episode.

Michelangelo says the line, "there's no need to fear, Michelangelo is here!"  Michelanelgo's heroic entrance is coupled with a variation of Underdog's famous catchphrase, "There's no need to fear, Underdog is here!"

47 April's Artifact

This is the first time we see Raph's fear (or hatred as he keeps saying) of bugs. This is later shown in other episodes.

The FoxBox had a blooper of this episode made when April asks the Turtles to help out with the cleaning of her store. She calls Donatello "Mike," and he corrects her. Mikey then says that they may need intialized belt buckles, making a reference to the 80s-90s cartoon.  [View Clip]

Some of the songs used in this episode are direct homages/parodies of music heard from Phil Collins.

In Predator, the characters covered themselves in mud to hide their scent from the creatures. April and the Turtles did that here to hide their scents from the insects.

When April rises out of the mud, she does it in the same manner Sylvester Stallone did in the action film Rambo.

[CONTAINS A CURSE WORD]  April says the line, "get away from him, you witch!"  This episode makes a reference to the Aliens movie franchise, when April cries out this quote while saving Raphael from the hornet queen- a reference to the famous quote made by Sigourney Weaver's character in the movie, Aliens, when saving a little girl from the alien queen: "Get away from her, you bitch!"

48 Return Of The Justice Force

First appearance of Combat Cruisers. All four Turtles got to drive those tri-wheeled motorcycles.

Michelangelo goes to Hampton, MA to get the next issue of his favorit comic book series.  Hampton, MA is where the Ninja Turtle comics are first created.

Episode is based on issue #15 of the original comic book series.

The Justice Force seems to be a geriatric amalgam of The X-Men and the Fantastic Four. Also: "Metalhead", the name of one of the aged superheroes, was also the name of an action figure from the nineties canon: a robotic turtle. I forget offhand if he appeared in the series, however.

Dr. Dome, an original member of the Justice Force, has a name similar to Marvel Comics supervillain Dr. Doom. They are only similar in name, and nothing else.

Justice Force's name is a parody of DC Comics' Justice League of America (JLA). The most important members of JLA usually consist of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Green Lantern, but almost every hero in the DC universe is or has been a member, and the current roster may not have some of the heroes listed above.

Metalhead's power is alot like Medusa from the Avengers. Both can make their hair move.

49 Big Brawl (1)

The flashback of Splinter's battle with Drako explains how Splinter injured his leg and now has to use a walking stick.  [View Clip]

This episode and it's other three parts appear in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus, but it's not a level, it's a tournament fighter zone.

A monster and one of the human heroes from The King are in the Battle Nexus Tournament.

This episode marks the reappearance of Draximus (seen in the crowd of competitors before the Nexus Tournament) the Triceraton Warrior {from the Turtles in Space saga}, and The Ultimate Ninja.

This was unofficially the last episode of Season Two in the American scheduling. However, in other nations The Big Brawl quadrilogy was aired in its entirity.

50 Big Brawl (2)

In this version, Usagi appears without his "mon" (badge of his clan) on his kimono. His sleeves are also tied and gathered in all his appearances, which in the comics he only did when working, not fighting.

Another character makes an appearance from Usagi Yojimbo's universe, Gennosuke, Usagi's "traveling companion" in many of his comics. Usagi is right to question Gen's attendance at the battle royale: he is a bounty hunter, not a samurai.

Donatello loses to a creature who loses the next match to a monster straight out of "The King". But back in that episode, Donny knocks out several of those monsters.  [View Clip]

First apperance of Usagi Yojimbo, a comic star in his own right, whose creator shares a friendship with TMNT creators Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. As a result, he has also appeared in the classic TMNT cartoons and Archie comics.

Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Splinter won the first round. Donatello was the only one who didn't.

Although Gennosuke in not a practicing samurai and has never served a lord, he is the son of a samurai; In ancient Japan, being the child or wife of a samurai put you in the same social class as samurai.

Usagi says, "you'll never change Gen-Chan."  Throughout these four episodes, honorifics are used abundantly. Usagi's quote, refering to Gennosuke, uses the honorific "chan", giving Gen an "informal-friend" title. Other honorifics used in these episodes are "san" (common, non-family title), and "sama" (very formal title).

51 Big Brawl (3)

According to Turtles in Space (and later Rogue in the House), Triceratons breathe a mixture of nitrogen and sulfur. Since there doesn't seem to be an atmospheric converter hooked onto Traximus, it can only be assumed that the Nexus has some sort of universal atmosphere.

Although Michelangelo beats Raphael, he does it without hitting him once. Mikey just gets under Raph's skin, so he loses his cool and charges straight into a wall. So whilst Mikey did beat Raph, it's yet to be seen if he would beat him if he actually fought him.

At this episode's conclusion, Michelangelo is the only Turtle still in the Battle Nexus Tournament.

52 Big Brawl (4)

In season 1 episode 4, Meet Casey Jones, the episode begins with Mikey and Raph sparring. Mikey is seen having the upper hand until Raph losses control of his temper. This reflects the idea that Mikey does have the skill to challenge Raph.

Of the contestants, Leonardo is the only one who did not have a fair shot at winning the Battle Nexus championship, something no-one, including Leo, ever mentions. Usagi's chance was also ruined since the Gyoji implied that he might have been the one to unfairly injure Leo, thus disqualifying him. We don't know what would have happened if either of these two had had a fair chance to win.

Mikey may not have literally kicked Raph's butt, but he did it figuratively by knowing his brother well enough to know that if he egged on Raph, he would basically defeat himself, saving Mikey the trouble.

Usagi is the third person to fight using Don's bo staff, the first person being Shredder in Shredder Strikes Back, Part Two, and the second person being Leo in What a Croc.

53 Space Invaders (1)

Raphael says the line, "it's not nice to invade Mr. Raphy's neighborhood," which comes from the title of the children's show "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood."

The title of this episode and the following two episodes related is an allusion to the 1978 arcade game, Space Invaders. The episodes have nothing to do with the actual game besides sharing the same title.

Michelangelo says "prepare to be assimilated" which is a very common line in the Star Trek series.

Michelangelo says the phrase 'it's the end of life as we know it, and I don't feel fine."  REM has a song entitled It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine). Michelangelo is referencing that REM song in his line of dialogue.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

54 Space Invaders (2)

The new Justice Force roster includes: Silver Sentry, Ananda (daughter of Battlin Bernice and Dr. Dome), Metalhead and 2 new superheroes; a male called Tsunami who appears to have hydrokinetic powers and a female called Chrysalis who appears to be a sort of alien fairy (we see her manifest magical energy wings on her back).

The Justice Force has changed since Ep. #48. It now includes Ananda, the daughter of Battlin Bernice and Doctor Dome, who pilots her father's Domebot, Metalhead, and the Silver Sentry. Also the Sentry had made an amusing cameo in the previous Justice Force episode, as Donatello's flying toy.

The Shredder and Karai return in a cameo in this episode; they are now residing in Japan.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

55 Space Invaders (3)

The Turtles end up keeping the cruiser they stole from the Prime Leader, but it hasn't been seen since the following episode.

Fugitoid appears at the end of this episode.

When Donatello was undergoing the mind probe, scenes from The Shredder Strikes Back and Tales of Leo play on the screen.

Michelangelo says "Et, tu, Leo?"  Michelangelo is quoting from The Tragedy of Julius Caesar from when Brutus assassinates Julius Caesar.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

56 Worlds Collide (1)

April and Casey kiss for the first time.

The Fugitoid says, "Greater love has no robot than this, that he lay down his RAM for his friends."  In the prologue, Prof. Honeycutt makes this remark about his plan to sacrifice himself in order to stop the war between the Federation and the Triceratons. This quote is lifted from John 15:13 of the Bible, which reads "greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

57 World Collide (2)

In this episode, we learn that Splinter has been teaching April some Ninjitsu, and she has proven to be an apt pupil, as evidenced by her performance in this episode.

Leatherhead returns. He survived the old lair cave-in back in "What a Croc" but was captured. The Federation is on Earth, and after a deal with Bishop now have the Fugitoid in their possession.

The evil Agent Bishop in this episode looks very much like Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report. Bishop is possibly a cartoon version of him.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

58 Worlds Collide (3)

Commander Mozar shows his true colors in this episode when he hesitates when ordered to cut the Triceraton mothership off from the rest of the fleet (which would strand their soldiers in space) & later orders his men to surrender to the rebels.

The Triceraton War ends with this episode.

The Fugitoid "dies" in this episode, or rather his body is left without his primary conscience, Honeycutt would return in a formless capacity in "Mission of Gravity."

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

59 Touch And Go

The Mob Leader says, "maybe he phoned home."  This is the reference to the popular '80s movie E.T., where the friendly alien frequently used the phrase, "E.T. phone home."

Michelangelo asks, "What are these guys, Terminators?"  Mikey likens Touch and Go to the legendary indestructible cyborg from the future, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Michelangelo likens Mr. Touch and Mr. Go to the Wonder Twins, the campy sixties superhero siblings who activated their powers of transformation by touching their fists together.

Michelangelo says, "I pitty the fool who throws a train at me."  Mikey calls Touch "Mr. T" who was an '80s character famous for quotes that began with "I pity the fool..."

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

60 Hunted

Baxter Stockman, in the Utrom robot body, makes a cameo appearance in Leatherhead's hallucinations. Nice attention to detail since that is how Leatherhead would remember Baxter, and not as the disembodied brain he would become.

This episode is the first time Raph says the full name of one of the turtles, other than himself.  [View Clip]

This is the first time Donatello uses a shuriken star. Instead of in battle, it was to deactivate the land mine Leonardo stepped on.

At the end, the Turtles find Leatherhead a home that resembles the subway station that was used for their movie counterparts for the second and third movies.

Based on Issue Six of the original Tales of the TMNT comic series.

61 H.A.T.E.

The H.A.T.E. leader mentions an alien being chased by a mob down Avenger Alley in New York City. Back in the episode, Touch and Go, Raphael was chased by a mob down an alley he names as "Avenger Alley." Most likely, Raph was the so-called "alien" being referenced here.

Even though Leo appears in this episode, he isn't part of the action, nor does he do any fighting.

Casey's mother made April go through her "test," even though she knew they weren't engaged. She must have realized they have feelings for each other, since she was observant enough to notice Leo and Splinter.

Casey's mother revealed that his first name is Arnold.  Arnold Casey Jones.

Adapts Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book Issue #12.

After Raph pulls one of the H.A.T.E. guys off the cliff, the next one that he knocks off the gatling gun looks like Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat.

Michelangelo says, "Hey, pal, didn't your mom tell about these things? You'll put your eye out, kid."  This "eye out" line about guns is extremely similar to the excuse Ralphie receives frequently in the 1983 movie A Christmas Story about why he shouldn't get a rifle for Christmas: "You'll shoot your eye out, kid!"

Michelangelo says, "E.T phone home."  E.T. says this exact line in E.T.-The Extraterrestrial. This is probably the most famous line spoken by an alien.

Donatello says, "Forget it William Tell."  Rapheal and Michaelangelo were using a bows and arrows to hit apples stacked on top of Donatello's head. Their actions as well as Donatello's line are references to the legendary hero William Tell.

62 Nobody's Fool

This is Stockman's first appearance in his new look: a hologram over his tank a robotic arm and self-movement system.

Mr. Touch and Mr. Go return in the in this episode.

The Turtle Titan costume Michelangelo wore in "The Unconvincing Turtle Titan" returns in this episode for a few minutes.

Adapted from Issue 2 of the original Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic.

First animated apperance of Nobody.

Where Silver Sentry resembles Superman, Nobody resembles Batman.

63 New Blood

Leonardo apologises to a Karai foot mech before destroying it, indicating he feels more than just trust where she is concerned.

Previously titled "The New Guard."

The TRI Base featured in this episode bears a strong simularity to The Technodrome, Shredder's war machine from the original series.

First apperance of Dr. Chapman, The Shredder's new scientific advisor.

Looks like Shredder considers both Hun and Baxter dead weight now.

This episode appears in the video game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

64 The Lesson

The book the bullies take from Casey's friend is a copy of The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Raphael's teaching technique was to try to find the young Casey Jones the right weapon. Casey later got his weapon of choice from one of the bullies, and thus began his use of a hockey stick as his favorite personal weapon.

The younger Turtles was teaching a younger Casey Jones, but they don't know it. At the end, it was revealed that it is Casey Jones because he can't remember the battle cry Mikey taught him, so he made up his own, the battle cry he still uses.

The younger days of the Turtles are revisited once more, the first being in the episode "Tales of Leo."

This episode is similar to The Simpsons episode "The Way We Weren't" where Homer and Marge found out that they actually met when they were kids instead of in High School.

65 The Christmas Aliens

When Usagi gives Leo a sword as a gift, this sword look just like the sword Oroku Saki gave Leo in "The Shredder Strikes Part One."  [View Clip]

Mikey has his mask off for most of this episode.

Mikey's pet cat, Klunk, makes his first appearance since the comics in this episode.

Usagi Yojimbo and the Silver Sentry return in this episode.

This story is based on the December 1985 Michaelangelo #1 titled The Christmas Aliens by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird where he retrieved stolen dolls of the same name during the Christmas season.

66 The Darkness Within

Donatello is not just bi-lingual, but he is MULTI-lingual. He can speak and read English, Japanese, Egyptian, and Italian.

Klunk, the orange cat Mikey got in "The Christmas Aliens", makes a short appearance in the beginning of this episode.

Raphael's greatest fear is to give into his anger and become his very enemy: The Shredder, this is a reference to a popular story arc used in the now discontinued "Third Volume" of the Ninja Turtles comics which were published under IMAGE, Peter Laird has since confirmed this volume is the only one of the four TMNT titles set in the original universe to have no place in continunity.

Raphael knocks off the Shredder's helmet, and it's his face underneath. Similarly, Luke Skywalker fights an illusion of Darth Vader in a cave on Yoda's planet. When Luke knocks Vader's helmet off, it's Luke underneath the mask in Star Wars V The Empire Strikes Back.

Donatello says, "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here."  That's an exact quote from the book Dante'sInferno. This Italian inscription is placed aboce the Gate of Hell (not the opening) and is not included in the nine circles. Similarly, the entrance into the basement wasn't the entrance into the Turtles' nightmare (a hell of itself) but the cocoons they were entrapped in.

There are, intentional or not being the question, apparent references to the works of H.P. Lovecraft in this episode. The creature at the end bears a slight resemblence to Cthulu. The old man who disintegrates at the end of the story can also be equated to one of his short stories, "The Colour Out Of Space," made into the movie "Die, Monster, Die!" with Boris Karloff.

67 Mission Of Gravity

The words "kill" and "dead" were said--directly--this episode, rather then use synonyms.

Hun and Stockman aren't exactly friends, but they are no longer enemies, work together and are both being duped and are doing the same thing about it. Shredder and Hun aren't getting along anymore, Hun is like Stockman... a failure.

First time Hun suffers consequences at Oroku Saki's hands.

By the end of the episode, it seems that the city of Beijing is now facing the wrong direction when it is returned to terra firma.

Professor Honeycut returns in this episode as a partial core consciousness download.

Baxter gets yet another new body in this episode. A humanoid configuration without a physical head; where its head should be is the hologram projection of Baxter's human head that was also used on Mark II and III of the jar containing the remains of his nervous system. His brain is now stored in the chest. Stockman changes bodies more often than the Doctor on Doctor Who.

68 The Entity Below

The Turtle Tuneller returns in this episode.

The Green Woman from the episode "Monster Hunter" is a human mutated by the underground race.

This is the first episode aired on Cartoon Network.

The Underground turned out to be part of the lost city of Atlantis. It was indicated there are more underground cities of Atlantis somewhere.

Donatello says the line, "Itlintias is Atlantis!"  The underground turned out to be the lost city of Atlantis who's name was originally Itlintias. This is not the first time Atlantis has popped up in TMNT. In the original series Atlantis was featured in 2 episodes. Once while they were in Greece where April was the reincarnation of a Queen of Atlantis and had a neclase that made Atlantis rise out of the ocean untill Donatello destroyed the neclase (causing Atlantis to fall back) and a 2nd time when the turtles helped Merdude find his way back to Atlantis, this time off the coast of New York.

69 Time Travails

The Ardvark at the beginning of the new time period is a character from an old series of comic books and appeared in the 1980's comic of this episode.

Drako and The Ultimate Nina return in this episode.

The turtles' knight armor has been adapted into a toy line.

This episode first aired on Cartoon Network.

First appearance of Renet.

Adapted from Issue# 8 of the original TMNT comic book.

In another concession to the dictates of kid's animation, Renet is considerably less busty than her original comic book incarnation.

In the original comic book version the Turtles were teamed up with fellow indie comic character Cerebus. He is absent from this adaptation due to the rights to his character not being aqquired in time. However, a reference is made to him breifly in the form of a masked aardvark witnessing the Turtles and Renets' arrival.

Savanti Romero (the satyr-like demon sourcerer) was the enemy the turtles, Renet, and Cerebus faced in the original comic TMNT #8. Like the Savanti in the cartoon, the comic Savanti wanted the Time Scepture to take revenge on Lord Simultamious. He too summoned up zombies to try and stop the turtles and their crew. And just like in the cartoon, comic book Savanti was banished to yet another time by Lord Simultanious.

Draco and the Ultimate Ninja return in this episode as a merged being.

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.

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.

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.

70 Hun On The Run

This is the last time until the Ninja Tribunal Season where Karai and the turtles work together.

The quote from Bishop "Seems the odds have changed. But I never play the odds." was used twice. First was in this episode. Second was in a video game called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare after you beat Bishop.

An interesting brother-sister dynamic between Karai and Hun is seen here, with Shredder as a very strange father indeed. Though intelligent, Baxter Stockman's biggest character flaw is his overreaching arrogance and naivete. Considering there's a new rooster in the henhouse--Dr. Chaplin--he's no longer truly indispensible. This episode may be Stockman's last hurrah. He probably should have known better, cooled it with the schemes, and just lain low.

Apparently, Shredder is not aware that Hun conspired with Baxter to foil his plans in Mission Of Gravity. He says to Hun's face that he all is but punishing him merely for repeated failures and not treason by his words that Hun has always been unquestioningly loyal.

This episode first aired on Cartoon Network.

Donatello gains a train, but Raph's Shell Cycle is destroyed.

71 Reality Check

Utromidium, the weakness of the Super Turtles, is obviously named after the Utroms, the beings responsible for the Shredder's appearances, and for the Turtles' being.

At the beginning of the episode, Mikey's main focus is on his comics. Interesting that he wound up in a world that had superheroes.

Mikey's cat Klunk makes yet another brief appearance at the beginning of the episode.  [View Clip]

Ultimate Draco returns.

A classic Ninja Turtles cartoon in-joke makes his way into the episode, whilst looking through a database of villians The Turtles come across the "Transmagrafier", which was a device used in the original series.

This episode is adapted from Issue Seven of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The 'Penultimate Nullificator' is a spoof of the 'Ultimate Nullifier' used in the Fantastic Four comics.

Grid-X says, "He's infiltrated the Shell of Justice, we better scan him."  The headquarters for the Super Turtles is the "Shell of Justice," which is a reference to the "Hall of Justice" from the 1970's Superfriends series and most recently in the 2006 comic book run of Justice LEague of America.

This episode appears in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

72 Across The Universe

At the beginning of the episode, Raphael and Casey are working on their bikes. Interesting that Raph wound up in a world that had maxed out bike races.

Look closely at the cheering crowd that is shown after the second race. On the far right of the screen are two familiar looking aliens from the "Turtles in Space" arch. First is the alien cook from the Spaceport Inn in "The Trouble with Triceratons." Beside him is the alien prisoner that the turtles met in the lunch room in "The Big House."

The intro of the episode features the same moment from "Reality Check," from Raphael's point of view.

Raphael comes face to face with the world and characters of Peter Laird and Jim Lawson's highly regarded "Planet Racers" series of graphic novels.

This episode appears in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

73 Same As It Never Was

Stockman's jar (which contains his brain) is now attached to Hun's body.

From the size and shape of his coat, it looks as if Leo still has his shell; but with the coat on, we can't tell if his shell has been damaged or weakened. It is also possible that during the years, Karai has developed a sword that could slice through their shells.

Donatello's exo-suit is a reference to the non-canon Volume 3 of the Mirage comics, where Donatello was rebuilt as a cyborg after a spine-shattering accident.

This episode also contains a reference to the Image comic--- Michelangelo has lost his arm in this episode, an event that happened to Leonardo around #18 or so of the Image comic.

Angel is mentioned as having her own resistance faction.

Dr. Chaplain's Karai inspired robots return in this alternate reality.

The Shredder's apperance in this episode (with his Utrom body attached as his head)is a reference to an ARCHIE comics universe storyline in which Krang surgically attached himself to Shredder's body. Also, the eyepatched Raphael and the blind Leonardo (substituting for Michelangelo) are references.

This episode first aired on Cartoon Network.

Apparently, Stockman DID indeed get a similar fate to that of Hector Con Carne from the show Evil Con Carne.. His brain was still in a jar, but it was attached to Hun's body. One of the Shredder's apropos punishments, it would seem.

In the beginning, while the Shredder is addressing the public, Karai-Bots are shown blasting machine guns connected to their arms and stepping over human bones. The shots are similar to those of the grim future portrayed in the Terminator movies.

This episode appears in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

74 The Real World

At the beginning of the episode, Leo's main focus is on his training. Interesting that he wound up in a world that required more of his ninja fighting skills than any of his brothers, even Donatello.

The scene where Leonardo meets Tomoe Ame and Lord Noriyuki is based on the beginning of the Usagi Yojimbo comic, when the pair first encounter Miyamoto Usagi. In the comic, Tomoe believes that Usagi is another mercernary trying to kill Lord Noriyuki, but Usagi defeats her and explains that he isn't there to kill anyone. In the show, Leonardo takes Usagi's place, and they are attacked by Mogura ninja, as opposed to various bounty hunters. Both encounter the Neko ninja.

The various clan names are the Japanese words for the animal that each clan is composed of. Leo is a "Kame" ninja, and Kame means turtle. The mole ninjas that attack are called "Mogura" ninjas, "Mogura" means mole. The "Neko" warriors are cats, and so forth.

The group's escape by jumping off a cliff into the river is similar to that Usagi's and Gen's escape from Neko ninja in "Shades of Green, Part I", of Usagi's comic. (Intrestingly enough, Shades of Green is also the beginning of a three-book series featuring the TMNT!)

An overlooked character in this episode is Chizu, the leader of the Neko ninja. Her relationship to Usagi is very similar to that of Leo and Karai.

Two of the three ninjas clans are seen in this episode, the Mogura (moles) and Neko (cats). The Komori Ninja (bats) are not mentioned.

Splinter lectures Leonardo on the "Falling Rain" style in the beginning of the episode. Tomoe is the undisputed master of the "Falling Rain Style" of swordsmanship, in the comic.

The characters in the world Leonardo is sent to are all from the "Usagi Yojimbo" comic book series. Leonardo met with Miyamoto Usagi and Gennosuke before, in the Battle Nexus.

Much like the other episodes in this saga, this episode will feature the same moment at the beginning of "Reality Check," except it'll be from Leonardo's Point of View.

The capital of Usagi's world is Ito, close to the spelling of the Japanese capital during the Tokugawa Shogunate, Edo. However, Edo would be renamed Tokyo during the Meiji Restoration of the 1870s.

This episode appears in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

75 The Real World (2)

Ultimate Drako splits back into Lord Drako and Ultimate Ninja and end up turning to stone and crumbling. However, Lord Simultaneous reclaims his Time Scepter and restores Ultimate Ninja into a child.

Splinter was responsible for the final phase-outs of Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello, because he was determined to get his sons back.

76 Bishop's Gambit

This episode appears in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

Leatherhead returns, having been responsible for Professor Honneycut's new body.

The episode was previously scheduled to air March 18th on Cartoon Network.

Bishop yells, "I have created life!"  In the classic horror story,Frankenstein, a scientist endeavors to create life. There was also the old horror movie stereotypical black and white laboratory shown at the beginning.

77 Exodus (1)

This is the only time the Turtles fight the Shredder while he's not in his armor.

Hun screamed "Krang!" as he fell into the pit below the space shuttle. This was a cleverly plotted callback to Krang of the original series: a alien brain warlord of Dimension X.

Hun finally discovers Shredder is an Utrom.

Exodus, the episode title, was also the second book of the Old Testament.

Shredder's robot body broke like the T-1000. Shredder got frozen with the liquid nitrogen, then his robo-suit broke.

This episode appears in the video game level final Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare.

78 Exodus (2)

In most cartoons, the words dead, death, killed, etc. are rarely used, let alone any animated character ever should actually experience them. This episode could very well contain the highest body count in US animated TV series history. A total of 4.2 million beings, at the least, are said to have "perished" by the Shredder's actions according to the Utroms trying him.

Bishop and Stockman now have formed a strong partnership.

Shredder's real Utrom name is revealed: Charel.

This marks the first time that a season of this series has aired in it's entirty without an opening for the fall season.

Exodus, the episode title, was also the second book of the Old Testament.

Stockman's program on the computer not allowing Chaplin access as well as mocking him is just like Wayne Knight's character in Program Form mocking Samuel L. Jackson's character and not allowing him to access a needed program in Jurassic Park.

79 Cousin Sid

Another one of Casey's family members is introduced, his Cousin Sid.

As of this episode (and season), the theme song's lyrics are changed. The following is what's been changed.  Instead of the song part going "watch out for Shredder," Michelangelo says "we shredded Shredder!"

80 The People's Choice

If you look at Leo's shell, a piece of it is missing. This is noticeable throughout the fourth season but the shell is healed by the Fast Forward season.  [View Clip]

This episode is based on TMNT Volume One, # 13.

The title is a paradoy of the famous awards ceremony The People's Choice Awards.

Michelangelo chants, "Klaatu Barata Niktu."  This is the phrase used in the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still to stop the rampaging robot, as Mikey attempts to do. It is more commonly known as the phrase Bruce Campbell was to say in the 1993 movie Army of Darkness.

81 Sons Of A Silent Age

The Fish People are more of the Elantians creations.

Based on TMNT-Vol 1 #28

82 Dragon's Brew

Leonardo is the only Turtle to appear in this episode.

Return of Hun (now refer to as Master in the Purple Dragons), Bishop and Baxter Stockman.

83 I, Monster

Adapted from "Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles " #4. In the original The Monster (who also has called himself The Ghost in the past) is a schizophrenic rather than a clone. Also, in the original the Turtles kill several of the rats ; here, this is toned down, as Mikey tries (futliley) to reason with them.

First apperance of The Rat King, Rat King, like Leatherhead was one of the only few MIRAGE characters to transistion from the comics to the original cartoon series. In this version, he is the exiled clone of Agent Bishop.

This episode's title is obviously a parody of Isaac Asimov's book "I, Robot." (NOTE: The title "I, Monster" was the actual title of the comic book issue that this episode was based on. The comic was published before "I, Robot" was made into a movie starring Will Smith.

84 Grudge Match

According to Splinter, Mikey actually has the most natural talent for ninjitsu, and could be as good as, if not better, than Leo... that is, if he trained as hard as Leo and didn't goof off so much.

Mikey doesn't lose the championship, he ends up defeating Kluh. So maybe Leo was refering more to the fact that Mikey was almost killed.

Due to a bufuddling messing of episode orders, this story has already taken place during "Wing and a Prayer", Leos' cryptic words indicate Mickey loses his championship status in this episode.

Kluh is a parody of WWE wrestler Hulk Hogan and Marvel's The Incredible Hulk. Kluh's name backwards is "Hulk," after all.

85 A Wing And A Prayer

Don introduces his ninja jet-packs in this episode.

A Wing and a Prayer was a 1944 WWII film about an aircraft carrier sent on a decoy mission starring Don Ameche and Dana Andrews.

Mike's line about worry leading to hate and anger and round and round till he comes up with a "dark and moody Leo" comes from Master Yoda in Star Wars I The Phantom Menace.

The villian in this episode has the same powers as Arch Angel from the X-Men.

86 Bad Day

We learn that Karai is the new Shredder. And the return of the five mystic ninjas.

Despite the fact that Shredder has been sent to exile by the Utroms, this is his first appearance in Season 4.

In the dream Casey, April, and Klunk all die.

This episode adapts aspects of Tales of the TMNT Volume Two, Issues Three, Four, and Nine.

The plot of this episode is similar to the New Batman Adventures episode "Over The Edge" where Batgirl is hit with fright dust and has a vision of her worst fear, much how this episode is a vision of the turtles worst fears.

In the illusion, Batgirl, Batman, and Commissioner Gordon die (like how April, Casey, and Klunk died), and the government intiates a manhunt for the turtles, much like how Commisioner Gordon led a manhunt for Batman.

87 Aliens Among Us

Besides the fourth season theme song, this is the first time Stockman's new exo-suit is seen. Bishop also is sporting new armor in this episode.

The news picture of the turtles all have red bandanas. This refers to the old comics.

Bishop's appearence is the same in late 1950s in Roswell, NM.

It's indicated again that Agent Bishop isn't entirely human--his skin bubbles periodically, and Baxter implies that it's a sign of ill health.

Michelangelo asks, "Why can't we ever get cute furry alien invaders?"  In The Fairly Oddparents episode, "So Totally Spaced Out," the alien race of Eugopatamians actually are invaded by a race of cute, fluffy bunny-like monsters called the Gigglepies.

Baxter Stockman ask, "How goes your production, Bishop?  Are you the next Orsen Wells yet?"  Orson Welles was a popular director and radio actor back in the 1930's. On the day before Halloween in 1938, Orson Welles put on a radio performance of H.G. Well's famous book War of the Worlds, a novel about a Martian invasion of earth. However, Welles directed the performance to be written and to sound like a news broadcast. Unfortunately, this lead many listeners to believe the performance was real. Like Bishop's fake alien invasion, panic would erupt as people believed the world was actually being invaded by aliens.

Michelangelo grossly said, "Eww!  He slimed me!"  This is the exact line that Dr. Venkman used in the movie Ghostbusters after Slimer the ghost covered him in goo.

88 Dragons Rising

It appears that Master Splinter is a good poker player.

This is the third time we see Casey as a kid. The first time was in "Meet Casey Jones."

It's revealed that Casey was named after his dad, so he's actually Casey Jones Jr.

89 Still Nobody

Raphael and Donatell meet Nobody for the first time.

This is the second appearance of Nobody.

90 All Hallow Thieves

In the prologue, one of the kids is dressed as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle with a red mask (Raphael).

Adapted from Mirage's TALES OF THE TMNT #3, with some small alterations (the King of Thieves picks a man's pocket on the street rather than while disembarking from a plane, and the scene with the man's accomplices being fatally poisoned is totally cut).

91 Samurai Tourist

This marks Usagi's first appreance in Season 4.

Usagi's rhino friend is dressed as Rocksteady--brown gun belt, yellow shirt--when the cops approach him coming out of a shop topside. Later we see an assassin who looks like a warthog (Bebop).  [View Clip]

The man walking his dog in front of Gennosuke (dressed like Rocksteady) has a mohawk and clothes like Bebop from the original series.  [View Clip]

92 The Ancient One

This episode aired during the NinjAcademy Awards in the category of "Most Favorite Turtle."

First appearnce of The Ancient One.

This episode has similarities to an episode of Teen Titans, "The Quest." They both featured the leader looking for a martial-arts master, who turns out to be along side them the whole time.

The Ancient One is a clear parody of Yoda. His frequent bursts of flatulence could be a reference to a popular Internet download of the scene where Luke Skywalker first meets the venerable old master, with farting sounds dubbed in.

93 Scion Of The Shredder

The Battle Shell, Shell Sub, and Turtle Tunneler are all destoyed in this episode.

After 93 episodes, the second sewer lair (it was once established by the Entity) has finally been trashed. Since the first ep. "Things Change", their first home destroyed the robot mousers.

94 Prodical Son

In the episode, "Same As It Never Was" (series 3), Shredder referred to Donatello as "The Prodical Son" having returned after a long absence.

Raph apparently felt responsible for the others in Leo's absence, since he was the only one to report to Leo about what happened about them all being separated.

From this episode onward until the Fast Forward season, the theme song has two small lyric changes. Instead of "Livin' underground." it is now "Never lets us down." and the part where Mikey says "We shredded Shredder!", it is now back to "Watch out for Shredder!" and is said by Karai.

This episode is a loose adaptation of the original Mirage Comic's "City at War" multiarc that began in August 1992 (#51). The original story spans months. In #57 Karai reveals she now controls the Foot Elite. She donned her father's armor seeking revenge on the Turtles. In both versions they are forced to move into a new lair (there, a water tower; here, a pumping station). Of course, many subplots are excised in the TV version, as well as a gruesome suicide by one of "Shredder" 's followers on "his" order and a betrayal by another Elite man upon learning the truth about Karai.

95 Outbreak

Donatello is cut by one of the insect mutants, which affects more than one of the episodes for the rest of the season.

We see in this episode Bishop has cloned himself a new body.

The title of this episode comes from the video game Resident Evil Outbreak.

96 The Trouble With Augie

When Donatello translates the symbols on April's computer, it lists Augie as Professor August O'Neil in the translation.

In the beginning before the opening sequence, April tells how her Uncle Augie made her love science, and how he is the reason she got a college degree in math.

April O'Neil has a sister named Robin O'Neil who lives on the West Coast.

The Twilight Zone episode that Donatello mentions was called "To Serve Man", where aliens come to help the Earthlings to get their trust so they can have the Earthlings for dinner.

The lizard monster army in armor, and axes:
Awfully similar as Lizard-Man from video games, Soul Calibur.

97 Insane In the Membrane

Though never aired in the U.S., it is included on the Season 4 DVD (Region 1), released September 12, 2006.

This episode was originally planned to be show before Return of Savanti, but due to problems with editing the episode's content, it was not aired on American commercial television. However, Portugal, Australia, and Canada have aired it.

Explaination why the episode didn't air¨from Lloyd Goldfine;
"The final edited and mixed version of the notorious 'Insane in the Membrane' was deemed unsuitable for air by Fox Broadcast Standards and Practices. Apparently, in between the time the episode was written, storyboarded, animated and edited (all stages approved by Fox BS&P), and the time the show was mixed for air, there was a change of personnel in the Fox BS&P offices, and no one involved in the original approvals was still employed at Fox. Upon seeing the episode, they were said to be 'horrified' and that there was no way they could air the episode. I'm not sure I disagree with them - had there been BS&P comments earlier in the process, we certainly would have handled the show differently. But as it was approved at every stage, we went full steam ahead. In the end, I was told it was bad judgment on my part... so there you have it.
I believe this episode will eventually be available, but plans have not been finalized."

98 Return Of Savanti (1)

Michelangelo says, "I'm going to call you Zog. Maybe your Zog's great great great great great great grandpappy."  He is refering to Zog the Triceraton from the two part episode Rogue in the House.

First appearance of Renet and Savanti Romero since season 3's Time Travails.

99 Return Of Savanti (2)

No trivia facts.

100 A Tale Of Master Yoshi

The Utroms after all the centuries they resides in Toyko, they fled to New York and establish TCRI building, due to Mashimi showed the Foot where to find the the Utroms hideout were.

At the end, Ancient One had a conversation with the shadow characters that looks just like Shredder. Which will reveal the fourth season finale episode The Ninja Tribunal.

References are made to the atom bombings of two major Japanese cities which ended World War II in the beginning of the episode meaning that the begining of the episode takes place in the '50s.

From the film Kill Bill Vol.1 (2003), an ex-assassin, Bride (Uma Thurman) wears almost an exact as Yoshi's. Except his is a shirt, and Bride is a jacket. Also both took place in Tokyo.

Some of the plots was based on TMNT #1. vol.1 comics.

101 Adventures In Turtle-Sitting

Casey and Leatherhead return in this episode after being gone from the show for quite a while.

Baxter Stockman was revived by Bishop when he recovers his brain from episode "Insane in the Membrane" and planting it on a new cyborg body.

Due to the fact that 4KidsTV didn't show "Insane in The Membrane, this episode was shown during the TMNT 100th episode celebration. The real 100th episode was A Tale of Master Yoshi.

When Mikey has to lure Don into the containment unit, he sees his mutated brother and says, "like, ZOINKS!". Mikey was obviously imitating Shaggy from Scooby-Doo.

The title "Adventures in turtle-sitting" may have originally come from the name of the 80's movie "Adventures in Babysitting" in which a babysitter has to take three kids into Chicago without parental permission to pick up her friend from a bus terminal.

It may also be a homage to the original series episode "Adventures in Turtle-Sitting" that aired in October 1992.

In the comics, Raph turns into the exact same monster.

102 Good Genes (1)

Karai wears Shredder's armor and her voice sounds normal and not more mettalic.

Michelangelo makes two references to the movie Titanic.  While on the Tribunal's ship, he calls out "I'm king of the world", which was quoted by Leonardo DiCaprio's character Jack Dawson in the movie. After a lightning strike, he's glad that there are no icebergs, making another reference to the movie.

The episode title shares its name with an episode of the old 1980 series "Beginning Of The End" aired in 1996.  [View Clip]

110 Nightmares Recylced

NEVER AIRED.

111 Membership Drive

Nano has matured now and no-longer acts like a child.

The Justice Force has gained 4 new members, Nobody, Raptar, Nano, and of course, Turtle Titan.

Raph only appears at the end of this episode while Don appears only at the beginning and the end.

This episode exclusively aired on 4Kids on March 24, 2007. It was randomly selected as a random "Lost Episode" bonus during the Fast Forward run.

It aired on March 22, 2008 in order with the other Ninja Tribunal episodes, which are also "Lost Episodes."

When Zippy Lad is questioning three new heroes wanting to be in the Justice Force, two of the three heroes have looks and powers similar to two characters from comic books.

Arrow Boy is similar to Hawkeye from Marvel Comics in the color of his costume and the use of arrows as his main offensive attack. Hawkeye is also known as a former member of the Avengers, which is the group in the Marvel universe that is very similar to the Justice Force in the way it has so many members.

Moleculo is similar to The Atom (Ray Palmer) in the way he uses a belt to shrink to a smaller size. Ray Palmer also used to be part of his universe's big group, the Justice League of America.

Nano's new and improve body is a resemble of two super heros. First is his gold body which is like Amazo from Justice League Unlimited who use to be an enemy but now a new member just like Nano. And second is his machine body which is much like Iron Man who are cover in steel.

The channel Leo and Don were watching the Justice Force recruitment report was Channel 6. In the classic series, the Turtles always watched April's reports on Channel 6.

118 Future Shellshock

One of the turtles said, "15 years of training", which means the turtles mutated 15-16 years ago.

Beginning with this "Fast Forward" season, the animation is different than the previous seasons.

Season 6 will have a title change the show will now be called "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fast Forward" in it the Turtles are transported 99 years in the future to aid the grandson of Casey and April a hand.

First appearances of Cody Jones, Serling and the Slavetraders. It's also the first mentioning and viewing of the "O'Neil Tech" office.

When this episode aired the second time in repeat, it featured a new opening that included upcoming villains.

Behind the smuggles' capes have the close symbols of the Foot Clan from the last four seasons.

The following items can be seen in Cody's penthouse: The turtles' masks, Shredder's armor, a black curtain with the foot ninja symbol on it. Casey's hockey mask, Casey's golf bag, Casey's weapons, one of Stockman's robot suits, an empty can from the TCRI building, and Professor Honeycutt's original robot body or it could've been a replica of the professor's robot body.  [View Clip]

Two Triceraton Soilders delivering newspapers can be seen on Earth. Triceratons were last seen in the Season 3 Alien Invasioin/Worlds Collide episodes.  [View Clip]

While Michelangelo is being tossed between flying cars, he lands on a windshield of a car being flown by a brown pig with a purple mohawk and purple glasses. This cameo's appearance is an indirect homage to Bebop, a henchman of Shredder from the original 1987 TMNT cartoon series. Bebop had more of a 1980's style to his design, though, including piercings and a ponytail.  [View Clip]

Sirling's personality and highly intelligent makes him act like C-3PO from the Star Wars movies.

Serling says, "I pitty the fool."  This phrase was used often by "Mr. T" of "A-Team" fame.

The Turtles and Master Splinter lose all their clothes when they are transported to the future. This is also a salute towards The Terminator movies. In the movie trilogy, nothing that was inorganic(like clothes) could go through the time machine. That's why all travelers appear naked when they first appear, and Terminator robots are entirely coated in organically grown flesh.

When Serling first helps the Turtles, he says "Come with me if you want to live." This is a famous line from all three The Terminator movies, which is also about time travel.  [View Clip]

When Mike misses Raph's hand in the truck chase scene and Raph skids onto the street Mike utter "Ruh-roh" in reference to Scooby-Doo.  [View Clip]

The title is a play on the book "Future Shock" by Alvin Toffler.

119 Obsolete

Donatello, along with April and Casey Jones built O'Neil Tech.

Starley Hambrath, the O'Neil Tech intern, is introduced in this episode.

Inuwashi Gunjin translates to "Eagle Soldiers" in English.

The Turtles now have the new futuristic versions of their weapons.

Serling says, " I have a bad feeling about this."  A often used catchphrase in all six Star Wars movies.  [View Clip]

120 Home Invasion

Viral is one of the villains in the Fast Forward theme song.

The holographic constructs at the beginning of the episode were traditional folk tale wood elves in the likeness of Legolas from Lord of the Rings.

At the beginning of the episode, Leonardo fights a whole bunch of short guys. They all look similar to Link, the hero from the Legend of Zelda game series.  The next guy they fight looks alot like a more primal Ganondorf, the main villian in the same series of games.  [View Clip]

The program simulation with cow cowboys is a nod to the cartoon Wild West Cowboys of Mesa.

Wild West C.O.W.boys of Moo Mesa was a Saturday morning series that ran on ABC from 1992 to 1994. C.O.W. in this case was an acronym for Code Of the West.

121 Headlock Prime

Up until Fast Forward, Mikey was the turtle that wanted to go and be a part of the rest of the world, yet suddenly it is Raph who wants to go out into the world, and Mikey is willing to stay isolated.

Several of the new characters appear in the updated Fast Forward credits, including Darius Dun, The Inuwashi Gunjin, Viral, Triple Threat, Torbin Zixx, and Agent Bishop.

This is a Leo and Raph episode.

This episode could be a reference to Archic Adventure Series #7 where the Turtles are wrestling in a wrestling match against an alien.

122 Playtime's Over

Cody's Turtle X battle armor includes a hockey mask and a hockey stick device, reminiscent of Casey Jones' weaponry.

Cody Jones' Turtle X is introduced in this episode.

Starley seems to have a crush on Cody.

Cody's full name is Cody Augustus Jones.

Michelangelo's game Helix's name comes from the hit shooting genre video game from X-Box, Halo, and Halo II.

Michelangelo threatens, "keep your hands off my game, you darn dity ape!"  This is a reference to Charlton Heston's famous quote from "Planet Of The Apes:" "Keep your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!"  [View Clip]

Michelangelo says, "quick Robin, back to the Shell Mobile!"  A quick and funny reference to the Batman show from 1966.

123 Bishop To Knight

Bishop is now president of the Pan-Galactic Council and is apparently turned good.

Bishop's reason of recruiting the turtles to stop Torbin Zixx is because he cannot be take part in missions.

Sh'Okanabo is considered a myth in the future, there for many people, even Bishop, believe he doesn't exist.

Bishop returns in this episode.

As Leo mentions, the Pan-Galactic Council is set up to work as an intergalactic United Nations, whose purpose is to promote peace throughout the world and in this setting the entire universe.

Michelangelo says, "I knew there was a glitch in the matrix!"  This may come from the movie "The Matrix" about a virtual world created by machines to keep humans in check.
The Matrix also comes from "Transformers" where it is a talisman of legend, passed down from Autobot leader to Autobot leader.

124 Night Of Sh'Okanabo!

The turtles meet Sh'Okanabo in person for the first time, though they never learn who he is in this episode.

It turns out that Constable Biggles is a robot.

Nightmare of East Westington;  This horror flick may be a parody of 'Nightmare on Elm Street'.

One of the horror movies being mentioned that is airing at the theater, "The Tangler," is a nod to a Vincent Price movie called The Tingler. The film's gimmick was meant to have devices under the seats that provided mild electric shocks to the patrons, hence the tingling.

125 Clash Of The Turtle Titans

The Shredder, Hun, Purple Dragons, Foot Soldiers and Silver Sentry makes an appearance in Mikey's story. Silver Sentry is also seen in Turtle Titan's flashback.

When Triple Threat is running into the cockpit of the museum you can see part of the 20th Century Fox logo over his/their right shoulder (left side of the screen).

Episode centers around Michelangelo.

First Time in Fast Forward where one of the turtles goes on a solo misson.

Michelangelo says, "A long time ago, in a back alley far, far away..."  The dialogue used by Michelangelo to open the episode is similar to the opening to the Star Wars movies. However, instead of a "back alley," the movies would be set in a "galaxy far, far away..."

The opening dialogue is a direct reference to the Star Wars films, which fits into the character of Michelangelo as a lover of Science fiction movies.

The new Turtle Titan is a descendant of Silver Sentry, but has no powers. This is similar to the character of Will Stronghold from the Disney movie, "Sky High." What makes Silver Sentry's grandson different from Will Stronghold is that Will's powers kicked in during the movie.

Michelangelo says, "And the hero formerly known as Turtle Titan."  This is a reference to Prince's decision to become The Artist Formerly Known As Prince.

The new Turtle titan is very similar to Batman. They both have a gadget-belt, batsignal(or turtle-signal) and a cave they use for headquarters. They also have no superpowers.

When Michelangelo tells his story in the beginning, he ends it by explaining Turtle Titan's alter ego which wears a suit, glasses, and hat. This is a reference to Superman's mild-mannered alter ego reporter, Clark Kent. Among the many Superman cartoons, the first was the legendary Fleischer Superman cartoons made between 1941 and 1943.

The title comes from a 1981 movie called Clash of the Titans. The story in this episode has nothing to do with that movie except for title.

126 Fly Me To The Moon

Donatello invents an alloy that is conveniently named after him called "Donatellium."

Running Gag: Mikey keeps using his little Raph puppet to make fun of the real Raph.

The Inuwashi Gunjin seem to have turned over a new leaf at the end of the episode and become good.

The PLV forcefields are directly reminiscent of the spacesuit forcefields used by the crew in Star Trek: The Animated Series (1977), only colored blue instead of Trek's yellow.

Through out this episode, you can say that Mikey was acting similarly like the character "Loogie" from the computer animated series on Toon Disney Jetix, "Get Ed."

The title of this episode is taken from a famous song written in 1954 by Bart Howard. The song was first known as "In Other Words", but was changed because people started to refer to is as the "Fly Me to the Moon"-song so the publishers changed the title. It is also one of the most covered songs ever, and even used as inspiration to the ending theme song of the cartoon-series "Neon Genesis Evangelion."

127 Invasion Of The Bodyjacker

This is the only episode where the TMNT are sporting tuxedoes.

Pictures of April and Casey are seen momentarily at the O'Neil Tech gala event.

Splinter says, "And you say this "Force" is an energy field created by all living things..."  A direct reference to Star Wars.

The title comes from the movie Invasion of the Body Snatchers from 1956 and is about humans replaced by aliens with emotionless clones. It is actually based on a serialized novel in Colliers Magazine in 1954, written by Jack Finney. It should be noted the movie was remade in 1978, 1993 and a movie that is heavily inspired by the original novel will be released in 2007 called the The Invasion starring Nicole kidman.

128 The Freaks Come Out At Night...

Master Splinter actually belches in this episode.

129 Bad Blood

First time Serling does any fighting.

First appearance of the Dark Turtles.

The comic book that Darius gives to Cody features Silver Sentry on the cover in a pose similar to the one seen on Superman #1.

Raphael's clone delivers a line made famous by Mr. T with his character of B.A. Baracus in the 80's TV show "The A-Team" and still used by the celebrity today in his reality show "I Pity The Fool"

130 The Journal

This episode more or less contains major spoilers to the Ninja Tribunal storyline that never aired on 4Kids TV. Some episodes aired on "Comcast On Demand" and at some time, the whole storyline will eventually be released on DVD.

Here's what events happened when the Ninja Turtles read April's journal about them returning to the present:

Michelangelo saves Silver Sentry from Dr. Malignus and later accidentally turns the Justice Force into babies during a battle with Dr. Malignus' minion Binky Boy.


Leonardo is forever exiled from the Ninja Tribunal's temple for almost ruining Karai's burial ritual of the Shredder, accusing Karai of being a traitor, and betraying the Ninja Tribunal's trust.


Donatello's ship to the Utrom homeworld is attacked by a meteor show during a tour of the galaxy and gets his brain transfered inside The Serling Unit's body.


Raphael and Casey fight Hun and the Purple Dragons and a Foot Mystic sends them to a deserted island for three years which during that time allowed Darius Dun to take over O'Neil Tech with junky tech that caused global warmed and this event caused the people to reside underground and later turn into Mole People.

It turns out that the journal they read was a fake make by Cody to teach the Turtles a lesson.

In Mikey's story, Nobody has apparently joined the Justice Force. Another new member is Nano, who joined the team in the lost episode, "Membership Drive". The rest of the team are: Silver Sentry, Chrysalis, Tsunami, Metalhead, and Ananda.

Dr. Malignus, The Justice Force, Hun, The purple dragons, The Ninja Tribunal, Karai, The Utroms, April and Casey all have brief appearances in this episode.

The villains in this episode only appeared in the journal that the turtles were reading and they were: Dr. Malignus, Binky Boy, Hun, Purple Dragons, and a Foot Mystic.

First Fast Forward appearance of April and Casey.

The plot of the Justice Force being turned into infants by a supervillain may be an allusion the Disney 2005 movie Sky High, in which the villain of the movie, Royal Pain, changes the senior staff and alumni of the superhero school into babies.

Nobody's inclusion onto the Justice Force may be an allusion to Batman's presence on the Justice League. Nobody, a grim vigilante with no actual superpowers, is more than a little reminiscent of Batman.

Michelangelo says, "My spider-sense is tingling."  Whenever the Marvel character Spider-Man senses danger, he feels it before it happens with the help of his spider-sense.

131 The Gaminator

Master Splinter is absent in this episode.

The Gaminator is probably a spoof name out of The Terminator Trilogy.

The use of the "-inator" suffix on all the game titles is a spoof of Nintendo's game naming practices (Such as putting 64 in Nintendo 64 titles, Super for Super Nintendo, and DS for Nintendo DS).

The Super Fabio Brothers is a pun of Nintendo's Super Mario Bros.

132 Graduation Day Class Of 2105

The Lap of the Gods from the first 5 episodes of season 5 makes an apperance at the end of the episode as a hologram.  [View Clip]

Michelangelo named his two futuristic nunchaku's Chuck, and Chuck Two: The Sequel.

Don says, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste", used in various ad campaigns and shows, promoting a good education.

Chunin, a ninja who have reached a level of maturity that's primarily consists of leadership and tactical skills.  Chunin was found from the biggest manga/anime hit, "Naruto."

133 Timing Is Everything

Michelangelo recieved a letter which was delivered by mailmen who had it in their possession for 100 years, a refrence to the ending of "Back to the Future II" in which Marty recieves a similar letter from Doc written in 1885.

Micheangelo says, "Time to make the doughnuts."  This was once the slogan used in old Dunkin' Donuts ads.

134 Enter Jammerhead

The title, Enter the Jammerhead, is a spoof of this action flick. It makes sense, because the Jammerhead now knows every form of ninjitsu.

Jammerhead was about make a Kamehameha wave as a final blow. Goku's most famous technique from the long running manga/anime series, "Dragon Ball Z."
Also the way Jammerhead's Kamehameha movement, is exactly like Goku's movement.
In addition, Jammerhead is voiced by Sean Schemmel, well known very being the voice of Goku in DBZ.

135 The Milk Run

Running gag: People keep attacking Torbon Zixx only to find out he's a hologram.

First Fast Forward episode to not feature Cody.

136 The Fall Of Darius Dunn

After all the fuss and concern for Cody's safety, he rides to O'Neil Tech on a motor scooter.

Zuko from tha last episode "Milk Run" makes a return appearance in this episode.

137 The Turtle X-tinction

Cody combines Turtle-X and Serling into one robot at the end.

Serling's pointy data key is the same used in the Robocop animated series.

Mikey uses the famous qoute that every villain says in the Scooby Doo series.

143 The Zixxth Sense

The title of this episode, Zixxth Sense, is a parody of the 1999 horror film The Sixth Sense.

144 Temus Fugit

At one point, the turtles arrived at what appeared to be a future event in which the original Tengu Shredder (who somehow came back to life), Ch'rell, the Utrom Shredder (who somehow returned from his exile), and the new Cyber Shredder are having a three-way war. In addition, the turtles encounter a strange warrior who claims to have defeated them.

When Mikey says he'll call the triceratops Zog The Second, he's making a reference to the other Triceratops he befriended in Return Of Savanti.

This episode concludes "Fast Forward" and premieres "Back to the Sewer". As such, both themes are used, at the beginning and end, respectively.

A new version of the Shredder has risen. When Viral attempted to infect a powerful Foot program (no doubt created by the Utrom Shredder), the program destroyed her and used her data to create a Cyber Shredder.

Due to an accident, Serling is now in the present time with the turtles.

145 Karate Schooled

The Turtles are reunited with April and Casey in this episode.

146 Something Wicket

It is revealed how the Cyber Shredder came to be. Ch'rell, the Utrom Shredder used a combination of earth machinery and Utrom technology to create an engram of himself should anything happen to his original form. The engram was stored in a cyber vault for safekeeping. When Viral attempted to hack into the vault, she triggered its defense system which released the engram, hijacking her body.

The vehicles used by the Turtles to traverse cyberspace are similar to the vehicles used in the film Tron.

This episode's title is a reference to the line "Something wicked this way comes", from the William Shakespeare play, Macbeth.

147 The Engagement Ring

This episode, Casey proposes to April.  [View Clip]

151 Web Wranglers

The Channel 6 reporter bears a resemblance to April O'Neil from the 1987 TMNT TV series in both her hair color and the the yellow colored suit she wore during her news reporter career for Channel 6. Also the mutated virtual turtle bears a resemblance to the TMNT's Super Mutant forms that were seen in the final two seasons of the show.  [View Clip]

152 SuperQuest

Superquest is a parody of "The World of Warcraft" where millions of players go to the game and play.

153 Virtual Reality Check

This is the second time the turtles are in a fake reality where their friends have died. The first time was in the episode, "Bad Day."

154 City Under Seige

The technique Michaelangelo uses to defeat Cyber-Shredder in the same technique Splinter used to defeat the Utrom Shredder in The Shredder Strikes, Part Two.  [View Clip]

155 Super Power Struggle

In the scene where the cape is stolen, Action Comics #1 can be seen behind the cape's owner.

This is the second episode where any of the turtles are absent. The first time this happened was in season 4's "Dragon's Brew" where Leo was the only turtle who appeared. In this episode, Raph and Mikey are the only ones who appear.

The Green Mantle's powers and costume are based off the DC Comics' superhero Green Lantern. Though the only slight difference is that while Green Lantern's Power Ring is ineffective against objects that are colored yellow (which had slightly changed in recent comics), Green Mantle's weakness is its lethality to anything yellow from its planet of origin, similar to Superman's weakness of how Kryptonite are the radioactive remains of Krypton. The original Green Mantle, Al Gordan is named after and bears a resemblance to Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern that premiered during DC's Silver Age.

156 Wedding Bells And Bytes

Cyber-Shredder appears to be gone for good, however, based on the future the Turtles witnessed in Tempus Fugit, he (along with the Utrom Shredder and Tengu Shredder) may return.

Although in that future Khan said he destroyed the turtles, which never occurred, showing that the timeline can change. But it could also mean that he destroys them at some point after "Wedding Bells and Bytes."

The Rat King has not been seen since "I, Monster."  [View Clip]

12 Unconvincing Turtle Titan

At the end of the last part, the Turtles have their weapons drawn, but as this part starts, their weapons are holstered.  [View Clip]

15 Notes From The Underground (3)

When Raphael says "Maybe we should find us a different rider," he standing next to Quarry, but when Leonardo says "What you're talking about is fine," Michelangelo is standing next to Quarry.  [View Clip]

16 The King

At first the interdemensional portal is up in the air on the otherside, but towards the end of the episode, the portal is on the ground on top of a hill.  [View Clip]

Raphael wears a towel when he comes out fully naked to compalin about the hot water to Donatello, but the animators don't put private parts in kid cartoons.  [View Clip]

17 Shredder Strikes Back (1)

Michelangelo tossed and landed four plates of breakfast food, but a few seconds later, everyone in the room has a plate of their own, making it five plates.  [View Clip]

Leonardo takes out his katana swords, but it looks short.  Later, they're large again.  [View Clip]

While Leonardo fights the Foot Tech Ninjas (the invisible ones), the weather is raining hard, which should of outlined the Foot Tech, and that would be useless.  [View Clip]

18 Shredder Strikes Back (2)

As Shredder goes to strike at injured Leonardo, Leonardo has his sword sheaths, then they dissapear and reappear later.  [View Clip]

After the episode introduction, Leonardo is colored like Raphael and it's Michelangelo that walks over to the broken window when it was Raphael that does in the end of the first part.  [View Clip]

While Donatello fights the Elite Ninjas, Donatello's bo-staff is knocked out of his hand, and it lands next to Michelangelo, then shortly Donatello has it back in his hands again.  [View Clip]

19 Tale Of Leo

The turtles are walking around in cold winter weather, which should of gave them hypothermia, because turtles are cold-blodded.

The liquid nitrogen should of shattered Donatello's leg when he kicked the door.  At the least, Donatello should of suffered from temporary paralyasis of his leg and not get very far.  [View Clip]

20 Monster Hunter

21 Return To New York (1)

No mistakes found.

22 Return To New York (2)

In one shot, Michelangelo doesn't have his Shell Cell in his belt, then later he does.

23 Return To New York (3)

If Baxter's rocket launcher was strong enough to blow a hole in the floor, it should of been enough to whipe out the Elite Ninjas when it fired at them.

The protective glove has five fingers, but Leonardo has three.  Yet with not enough fingers, Leonardo was able to weild the Sword Of Tengu as if he has all five fingers.

24 Lone Raph and Cub

The Mob leader mentions that there'll be a city-wide war (City At War), but how could he know that, considering the war was started after Shredder is known to be gone and the control over New York.  Shredder is still known to be still active, even in Secret Origins.

25 Search For Splinter (1)

As the Turtles are tightrope walking across the buildings, Leonardo first lead, then when the Turtles get onto the TCRI building, Donatello is in front.  [View Clip]

Donatello isn't holding a pigeon puppet close enough to the security camera where the view on the monitor screen is fully covered.  So the security guard looking at the view should of also saw Leonardo snapping the picture of the city landscape.  [View Clip]

In the beginning of the episode, April is wearing a yellow shirt, then later she's wearing the same clothes she wore from Tales Of Leo.

26 Search For Splinter (2)

On the Triceraton Homeworld, the Triceratons don't have to wear breating masks, but they do, like they did in Trouble With Triceratons.  [View Clip]

Sound doesn't exsist in outer space, but sound is happening a lot.

The turtle's hands expose while they wear the spacesuits, which would expose them to extreme hot/cold temperatures, and extreme gamma rays.

32 Secret Origins (1)

No mistakes found.

33 Secret Origins (2)

The sword smith addresses Shredder as "domo-sama" which isn't proper, because both words are an increasing of respect in Japanese.

When Shredder is falling through the trees, his gauntlet spike is on his right hand, then a shot later it's on his left.

34 Secret Origins (3)

There's a part where Raphael is colored like Leonardo.  [View Clip]

37 Modern Love - Return Of Nano

38 What A Croc!

It seemed hypocritical of Stockman to call the Turtles and Leatherhead freaks. They are advanced lifeforms and superior to humans in strength, and when concerning Donatello and Leatherhead, knowledge. Stockman has been ripped apart several times and built into mechancial spawns with even less humanity in him. Who's the freak?

Turtles are amphibious reptiles, meaning that they are exothermic land-dwelling animals that can live in the water. However, unlike amphibians, reptiles have lungs and eventually must breathe air from the oxygen. Although a reptile can hold its breath longer than a mammal, a Ninja Turtle would theoretically be able to hold its breath for a large duration.

39 Return To The Underground

When Donatello and Sydney were recovering the Crystal Moon and the heat shields were starting to fail, Donny was sweating. Turtles are cold blooded reptiles, and cannot sweat.

40 City At War (1)

Hun's bazooka reloads itself. It should not be able to do that.

When Mikey does an uppercut-like move with his nunchakus against foot soldiers, he has bandages wrapped around his left ankle. After the move is done, the bandages are gone.  [View Clip]

41 City At War (2)

Hun's bazooka reloads itself. It should not be able to do that.

42 City At War (3)

When Karai kicked Hun out of Shredder's Hut, Hun fell on top of the Police Car. The funny thing is, Shedder's Hut is on top of a very tall building, but the fall was very short. Also, Hun was bigger than the police car.  [View Clip]

43 Junklantis

44 The Golden Puck

45 Rogue In The House (1)

Hun should brush up on his politics. There is not a Prime Minister of England. England does not exist as an autonomous state and hasn't since 1707 when it was merged with Scotland and Wales to become the United Kingdom of Great Britain. So he should refer to the Prime Minister's androaid as the "British Prime Minister."

When we saw Baxter during "Secret Origins", he was a head on a tiny spider body with no room for a spine, but here he has a spine.

Although a brain has no nerve endings, the pain center of Stockman's brain is probably still intact. Shredder's techies probably figured out a way to stimulate it at the push of a button, making Stockman experience pain despite his lack of nerve endings.

46 Rogue In The House (2)

50 Big Brawl (2)

The chain-wielding warrior lost in the first one, but he can be seen fighting in the second round instead of his opponent.  [View Clip]

A couple of seconds before Leonardo is batting off the arrows, you can see his katanas on his back, and suddenly dissapear again. (The katanas should be on repair)

51 Big Brawl (3)

No mistake found.

52 Big Brawl (4)

At the end of the episode, Raphael said that Michelangelo won the Battle Nexus because of a technicality.  Then Michelangelo said that technicality is that he whooped his butt.  But Michelangelo never actually laid a hand on Raphael.

53 Space Invaders (1)

No mistakes found.

54 Space Invaders (2)

The Earth launched its entire nuclear arsenal at the Triceraton home world and had it contained by the Triceraton force shield.  There would be some radioactive fallout.

56 World Collide (1)

No mistakes found.

57 Worlds Collide (2)

April's first aid training is about 20 years out of date -- the Red Cross now recommends that the Heimlich maneuver be performed on a drowning victim (to clear the lungs) before CPR.

When Splinter, Casey, and April are standing in front of the laser barracade, Splinter is clearly holding a red spray canister in his right hand. However, in the next shot, the canister magiacally disappears, but reappears again when Splinter pulls it out of his coat.

During the scene where Master Splinter is freeing Raphael from his body restraits, it is clearly shown that only the arm straps were cut. This left the leg restraints remaining, though they appear broken in the next shot as Raph steps off the table he was tied to.

58 Worlds Collide (3)

When the turtles, Splinter, April, Casey, and Leatherhead visit the Triceraton Homeworld at the end to witness Traximus blowing away the Prime Leader's throne, they're not wearing atmosphere converters like they did the other times they were there. Nor are any of the Triceratons wearing spacesuits..

59 Touch And Go

When Mike first storms his way into the hotel room where Hun, Touch, and Go are talking, he knocks Hun into Touch and Go and sends all of the money in the suitcase flying. But later, he picks up the suitcase, which is supposedly filled with all of the money. Yet, as he and Splinter are walking away, there is still tons of bills lying all over the floor.  [View Clip]

Also, when Mike is looking out the broken window, we see he is talking with Hun who is hanging on to the windowseal. Hun looks pretty angry as Mikey insults him, then walks away. Now Hun is supposed to be a pretty strong guy, so why couldn't he simply pull himself up and back through the window and go after the two mutants.

60 Hunted

The hunter appears to use infrared to track the Turtles. Turtles are cold-blooded, and normal infrared wouldn't pick up their body heat.

At the very beginning, just after Leatherhead breaks the teapot, he puts his tail flat on the ground. However, in the next second, you can clearly see a second tail being lifted off of the ground, while the original is still there. The "goof" tail then disappears behind Leatherhead's back.  [View Clip]

61 H.A.T.E.

When Don and Raph were gassed by the H.A.T.E. leader, the trailer doors are open, but when he jumps in the truck and leaves (through the wall) the door is closed.  [View Clip]

Toward the end of the episode when Don and Raph are walking down the hill after the explosion, their belts disappear and after that the lower line across their plastron that is usually hidden by the belts disappears too.  [View Clip]

Don's bo staff both disappears and reappears throughout this episode. He is shown to not have it at the beginning of the episode, yet he is later seen fighting with it. Also, when Don leans out of the doon buggy, we can see that he does not have his staff. The shadow he projects on to the truck however, clearly shows that he has it with him even though he doesn't have it after he climbs into the truck.  [View Clip]

The man wielding the rocket launcher isn't too bright. He was trying to kill the Turtles from a close range with the rockets, which would have killed him also.

62 Nobody's Fool

In the opening scene, Nobody knocks out these two teenagers who were robbing a jewelery store and the police come to arrest the two punks. Later, the same two guys can be seen in the warehouse.  [View Clip]

63 New Blood

No mistakes found.

64 The Lesson

When the guys are drinking hot chocolate, we see that Don is sitting to Leonardo's left, while Raph is on his right. However, when Leo starts speaking about being "aware of their surroundings," Donnie moves. If you look closely, you can see that his mask is mistakenly colored red, and there appears to be two Raph's.  [View Clip]

After toddler Leo gets back from training little Casey, Splinter calls him to come train. As Leo is walking in front of Don and Mike, Splinter follows him. But, for some reason, the sensei's tail is missing from the shot.  [View Clip]

65 The Christmas Aliens

When Mikey throws the third purple dragon out of the truck, the police catch him saying they have the third guy who hi-jacked the truck. That means the police already caught Two-Ton and Spike but later Two-Ton and Spike are seen again riding in a car with another purple dragon trying to take the truck away from Mikey.

66 The Darkness Within

No mistakes found.

67 Mission Of Gravity

At the end of the episode, Shredder doesn't seem too upset that Dr. Chapman gave Baxter an upgrade without, as far as we know, approval from him.

Stretches of the imagination not withstanding, how can Dr. Chapman just grab Baxter's bare brain, with an ungloved, unsterilized hand, lug it around, which causes it to change shape during movement (Check the animation.) and NOT cause brain damage to Stockman.

68 The Entity Below

When Raph throws his Sais at the lava monster, they get melted. But at the end when the turtles are walking back to the tunneler, you can clearly see him holding his Sais on his belt.  [View Clip]

69 Time Travails

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.  [View Clip]

Raphael should of been badly burned after being inside the cockroach's stomach.

70 Hun On The Run

Unlike his raging curiosity with Raphael, Hun wasn't at all surprised that Bishop seemed to know everything about Shredder.

71 Reality Check

72 Across The Universe

Klunk, Mikey's cat, is supposed to have a white patch on his nose, but during his appearance, it isn't there.  [View Clip]

73 Same As It Never Was

Raph's good eye keeps movie. It starts off on the right, switches to the left during the first half of the final battle, then reverts back.  [View Clip]

Karai is unmarked after being hit by a rocket launcher.

Shredder is seen as his Utrom body residing in the Shredder based helment of his exoskeleton. When he speaks, though, the Shredder body voice comes from his moving mouth.

Baxter's eye is animated several times shown as being able to move around through the fluid inside its jar. It is only attached to his brain by the optic nerve.

The Utrom Shredder is over 1,000 years old, and during that thousand plus years the Utrom Shredder never had any years added to his face, but he seems much older looking after 30 years.

74 The Real World (1)

In the shot where Lord Noriyuki holds Leo's katana up to Lord Hebi's neck, his ears are white, not black like they normally are during the rest of the episode.  [View Clip]

The Neko ninja are fairly slim, yet Leonardo fits into one of their costumes (snuggly, if that).

When Usagi looks to the river and decides they need to jump, his sleeves are rolled all the way down, but there's still a ribbon crossing under his arms to keep them gathered back. In the next scene, his sleeves are gathered again.  [View Clip]

75 The Real World (2)

After the Daimyo's son and Draco split it cuts to an above shot where you see that Draco has already turned to stone even though the next scene is where it happens.  [View Clip]

When Master Splinter saves his three sons with the war staff, Donatello's bo staff is missing.  [View Clip]

76 Bishop's Gambit

When Bishop is escaping his destroyed lab, look closely as he climbs up the ladder. Where there should be "blood," there is a silvery fluid on his coat instead. Obviously, Bishop isn't human, or at least partially.  [View Clip]

When Bishop shows Splinter the image of President Grant from 1870, signing the Earth Protection Force into being, the other man in the picture looks suspiciously like Bishop, sunglasses.  [View Clip]

77 Exodus (1)

When Shredder tells Hun to handle the turtles, his hands are gray. Later when he escapes down the escalator and is talking to Chaplin, his hands are colored like his skin.  [View Clip]

When Mikey and Raph are hanging form the ceiling spying on the Foot Ninjas, you can see one of Agent Bishop's soilders walking around with the ninjas.  [View Clip]

Leonardo is stabbed by Karai, but there's no blood or flesh wound.  [View Clip]

94 Prodical Son

Leo has managed to learn the trick of removing his coat, which had his katana on the outside of the coat, without taking off the swords first; just all of a sudden he doesn't have his coat on, but he still has his swords on.  [View Clip]

The special walking stick Leo brought for Splinter sometimes appears on his back, between his katana, but will then disappear in the next shot, sometimes even in the same scene. Then, when he finally gives the stick to Splinter, he pulls it out of a duffle bag.  [View Clip]

Leonardo is near some prints in the sand. If they were made by Donatello, he would have to have been walking on his hands, since he only has 2 toes, while the tracks have a 3rd digit.  [View Clip]

The last time we saw the Ninja Tribunal, there were five of them. This episode has only four of them, even though there were five chairs meant for five people.

At the start of the episode Donnie is still wearing his bandage. When the wooden ninja arrive the bandage has disappeared.  [View Clip]

Leonardo didn't find it suspicous when "The Shredders" said that they wanted to fight against "A great evil."  Leonardo already heard that from Oroku Saki in "The Shredder Strikes Part One" and Master Splinter revealed Saki's ture identity as the Shredder and told the turtles that he was pure evil.

118 Future Shellshock

When the turtles and Splinter are transported into the year 2105, Mikey says "Ahh! The TV's gone!" Leo replies "Forget the TV, the whole lair is trashed." The captions show up as Don saying the line.

When Serling is taking Master Splinter's measurements, Raph walks off-screen to retrive his mask from one of Cody's displays, but he is accidently drawn with his mask on during this scene.  [View Clip]

At the beginning of the episode, the turtles lose all their gear, headbands, belts and weapons, and Splinter loses his robe, yet the rug that Splinter had wrapped around them came through and falls away after they have been transported.  [View Clip]

In past episodes whenever we see Master Splinter without his robe, his fur is completly gray, but in the begininng, he has a patch of white fur on his tummy.  [View Clip]

When the screen goes to a close up of Casey's golf bag in Cody's collection of TMNT stuff in the background to the left is one of Baxter Stockman's many robot suits, directly behind is Shredder's armor peeking over the top, and to the right is the Fugitoid's robot body. The strange part is that the Fugitoid's body was shipped off to float aimlessly about space after the turtles held his funeral in Worlds Collide part 3 Season 3 when he supposedly died.  [View Clip]

119 Obsolete

Cody seems to be the obvious person to repair Serling, but he couldn't find the camera in Serling's eye.

Darius Dunn, in spite of being so large, managed to get past the trained ninja turtles to rescue Leo.  [View Clip]

After Cody was safe, the turtles didn't go back to O'Neil Tech to use the machine to get the part they need to fix the time machine.

120 Home Invasion

Splinter seems to have disappeared in the dojo when Viral returns to check up on the Turtles, without showing any way of him escaping.  [View Clip]

Raph damages Triple Threat's big "wheel", yet he and Leo take off in it to get away from constable Biggles.  [View Clip]

122 Playtime's Over

Mikey said he played his helix videogame for 47 hours straight. Later, Raph said that Mikey played a videogame for 3 days straight. 47 hours is actually closer to 2 days instead of 3.  [View Clip]

127 Invasion Of The Bodyjacker

In this episode, they make a big deal about how weapons are being collected and destroyed, but no one, including Biggles, says anything to the turtles about their weapons in this or other episodes.

The episode is incorrectly named.  Invasion of the Body Snatchers.  [View Clip]

130 The Journal

Nano is pure technology (with human feelings) and thus cannot age. As for Ananda, she was inside the giant Dome-Bot suit which should've stopped her from aging.  [View Clip]

131 The Gaminator

Near the end, Viral looked huge when the turtles first entered the copinator game. But when we saw her full view she was only about 10ft. tall. After doing damage to her though,Viral grew to at least about 100ft. tall.  [View Clip]

132 Graduation Day: Class of 2105

During the graduation, Splinter puts the green riband around Mikey's neck, over his mask tails, yet by the time he stands up, then turns around, his "tails" are flowing free.  [View Clip]

In the beginning of the episode, when Leo is helping Mikey up, after he "kicks" his nunchakus, the sharp edges of Leo's blades keep switching back and forth, several times, sometimes pointing towards each other, sometimes away.  [View Clip]

133 Timing Is Everything

Mikey turns his Important Screw counter-clockwise, which would actually unscrew the screw.  [View Clip]

Donny was the one who deliver the envelope to the post office, but his voice sounds like Leonardo.  [View Clip]

If Sh'Okanabos time-window is the same as the one Cody has, everyone who went through it come out naked, like the Turtles did in Future Shellshock.

The turtles were clearly seen jumping through Sh'Oknabo's time window back into their own time period; yet, when Cody is about to be destroyed by Sh'Okanabo, the turtles just appear from nowhere and stop him. Yet it didn't directly show them going in. They probably could've just faked it and came back to fight Sh'Okonabo.
