Michelangelo is a party dude Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Heroes in a half shell Turtle power This might be a bad time to go off on your retreat, Master.
There is never a bad time to want to go off in the wilderness and commune with the oneness of the universe.
But what if Shredder and Krang pull another of their crazy schemes while you're away? I feel certain that your ninja training will see you through.
I sure hope you're right.
And so, the message of this special report on world hunger is that we all must do our part to feed the hungry citizens of our planet.
This is April O'Neal signing off.
Man, I don't get it.
We can put a rocket on the moon, but we can't put food on everyone's table.
Take a number, amigo.
Scientist dudes have been working on that problemo for years.
Yeah, well maybe it's time our resident genius took a whack at it.
Yeah! Maybe I can invent something that would help solve the world hunger problem.
I'll get to work on it right now.
Well, try to finish it before lunch, would you? You can only keep a pizza warm for just so long.
Blast it! Now where are those two lame brain mutants? Whoa! You clumsy louts.
Can't you do anything right? Well, I thought we screamed pretty good.
Just take care of those guards.
Sneaking up on people and fighting dirty.
Now, that I like.
[yelling] Hey, boss, what's Krang gonna do with all of these balloons? Ooh, ooh, maybe he's gonna blow 'em up and have a party.
Those are weather balloons, you wet brains.
Aah! You razor-brained klutzes! You're throwing our plans off schedule.
Now, load up the rest of those tanks and bring them to the Technodrome.
Gentlemen, prepare to be astounded.
Behold my contribution to the problem of world hunger.
Ta-da! The food revivifier! Like, what's it do, dude? Observe these soggy, overripe bananas.
Ew! Ew! Ew! And now, a single jolt of the revivifier ray, and That's amazing! They turned yellow again.
Sure, but how do they taste? Well, the proof is in the eating.
Hey-hey, you made a believer out of me.
Well, as you see, my revivifier reverses the aging process of food.
Oh, wow.
That invention could help solve the world hunger problem.
Don't go away, dudes.
It could also solve another food problem.
I found this week-old slice of pizza behind the couch.
Could you, like, make it fresh again? Oh, really, Michelangelo, I've got more important things to think about.
Wrong, compadre.
There's nothing more important than thinking about pizza.
[Donatello] No, no, wait! Stop! Oh, you've bombarded us with the revivifying ray.
Do you realize what this means? Uh, if it's about us turning yellow and waiting to be peeled, I don't think I want to know.
Chill, Raphael.
You're not food, you're a turtle.
Yeah, that's the trouble.
I'm not sure what effect it might have on our reptilian bodies.
[both gulp] Uh-oh.
April, this is Burne.
Where are you? I'm at Fifth and Main, chief.
Get over to the government weather station.
There's been a break-in.
Dozens of tanks of helium have been stolen, along with a crate filled with weather balloons.
I'm on my way.
Shredder, how could you? Leaving Rocksteady and Bebop alone on the surface? As they say on the surface, Krang, don't blow a gasket! They'll return with the equipment on schedule.
You'll see.
Well, they'd better for your sake! If those two bumbling cretins spoil my plan, you're gonna pay for it big time! I never realized how purple picks up the lavender in your eyes.
Oh, thank you.
Do you-- Ooh! What's going on? [voices getting higher] Look at me.
I'm shrinking! Me, too, and listen to my voice! I sound just like a little turtle.
This is all your fault, Michelangelo .
I warned you not to touch that revivifier, and now we're getting younger and younger! I said I was sorry.
What do you want, a letter of apology? A lot of good that'll do.
We can't even read yet.
Yeah, you big bully.
I'm gonna tell Master Splinter on you.
I don't wanna be little! Waah! Kids.
There's just no pleasing them.
[beeps] The TurtleCom! That can only be one person.
Yo, April, what's doing, dudette? There's been a break-in at the weather station.
You guys better get down there and check it out.
I'll bet it's Shredder.
What a time for him to show up.
Oh, boy! We want to go and beat up mean old Mr.
Shredder.
Oh, yeah! I like beating up that big bully.
Don't you worry, Auntie April, we're on our way.
Come on, turtles, let's have some neato fun at the weather station! [all shouting] No, dudes, wait! Come back! Auntie April? Oh, boy, this is gonna be fun.
Yeah, we'll find that mean old Shredder and punch him in the nose! Yeah, neato! Dudes, it's too dangerous! You're too small to take on Shredder.
Move it, mister.
Whee! Wait, micro-dudes! Hey, hey, look, it's Auntie April! Yoo-hoo, Auntie April! We're gonna punch Shredder in the nose.
It's the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, only they've turned into the 5-year-old Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Oh, no! Okay, we got all them helium tanks in the module.
Um, good.
Let's take 'em back to the Technodrome.
[Leonardo] Look, you guys, it's those big meanies! [Raphael] Hee hee hee! Let's get 'em! Come on and fight, you big bird brains! We're not afraid of you! Heh, I don't believe it.
The turtles went and shrunk back to little kids.
It's like a dream come true.
Yeah, I just love beating up someone smaller than me.
Say nighty-night, little turtle.
I'm gonna punch out your lights.
All right, spud, try picking on someone your own size.
Well, let's take care of the big one first.
Hey! watch it! Hey, look, he's doing the Turtle Trot! Hey, you big bullies, quit picking on our big brother.
Whoa! Whoa! That'll teach you to play dirty tricks.
That's it! I've had it up to here with those brats.
Quick, dudes, run! Oh, great.
Dead end.
Ha ha! When is this game gonna be over? [gulp] Sooner than you think.
Quick, fellas, hop aboard! Whoa, April, are we happy to see you! We sure are, Auntie April.
We were gettin' tired of that game.
Great news, boss.
Three of the turtles have turned into helpless little kids.
Excellent.
Return to the Technodrome immediately.
It's time to put those helium tanks to use.
[April] Oh, what a day.
I've never been so exhausted in my entire life.
[Michelangelo] Oh, for sure.
Who'd have thought three little tykes could take so much out of you? Thank heavens for nap time.
Well, listen, April, I gotta split.
Sure, stick me with taking care of them all by myself.
I gotta go back to the lair and look through Donatello's notes.
Maybe there's an antidote to his revivifier gizmo.
And then I gotta figure out what Shred-head and his mutant morons are up to.
Irma.
I rushed over to warn you.
Burne said if you're late filing the weather station story, you'll be the late April O'Neil Irma, I don't have time to explain, but I need you to baby-sit.
Three of the turtles have turned into 5-year-olds.
Mmm, they always did seem a little immature.
I know it's asking a lot, but-- Oh, say no more.
I'll keep an eye on the little shrinkers.
Irma, I love you for this.
Hmm.
So how come I have a feeling I'll hate myself for this? Okay, boss, now can you tell us why we're filling these balloons with helium? Keep on filling them, and don't ask stupid questions.
Krang, why are they filling the balloons with helium? I guess it's safe now to tell you.
I've sent this same treasure map to the city's most notorious criminal ringleaders.
It shows the location of a chest filled with stolen treasure buried on a secret tropical island.
What secret tropical island? The one my foot soldiers are building at this very moment.
Come this way.
So this is your treasure island? Yes, as phony as the proverbial $3.
00 bill.
It will be kept afloat by the stolen helium-filled weather balloons, while this heavy chain hooked to the top of the Technodrome will keep it from floating away.
Once all the greedy treasure-hungry criminals are aboard the island, I plan to cut the chain, and all my competition will just go floating away.
And I, and I alone, will be the boss of the entire underworld! That certainly is a lot of exposition.
Well, someone had to do it.
[yawns] Wow.
I feel better.
Yeah, I guess our little bodies needed a nappy.
Oh, hi, Auntie Irma.
What are you doing here? I'm turtle-sitting.
Hey, I'm hungry.
What you got to eat? Ice cream! Get your Jolly Times ice cream! Ooh, now that sounds yummy.
Hey, Mr.
Ice Cream Man! Stop! We'll be right down! No, guys, wait! Come back! Wait up, mister! We wanna get some ice cream! Get a move on, you guys.
We gotta dig up that hidden treasure.
Gangway, mister! Sorry.
You little brats! That man sure looks familiar.
Don't you remember? That was Big Louie.
We beat him lots of times.
Oh, no.
The ice cream truck is driving away.
We gotta stop it! [all] Tiny turtle power! This is the last time I sit for any baby, even if it doesn't have a shell.
Oh, no! [gulp] Maybe this wasn't such a neat idea after all.
[horn honks] No! Quick, Leonardo, what do we do now? What are you asking me for? I'm just a little tiny turtle.
Don't sweat it, micro-dudes.
I got you! Turtles, are you all right? Wow, Auntie Irma, you got your head on upside-down.
What a neat trick! How do you do that? It's better that you don't know.
Ah, Mother Nature is about to give birth to Bogus Island.
[Krang laughs] I feel just like a new daddy.
Well, Shredder, what do you think of my scheme now? So far, this crackpot idea of yours seems to be working.
What do we do with this leftover balloon? Ooh! Whoa! Help! Boss! Help! Idiots! Must I do everything? Please, get us down! Whoa! If these are your typical earthlings, why am I having so much trouble conquering this dumpy planet? Get those bad guys! Hi, guys, I'm back.
Oh! My apartment! What happened to it? It was invaded by turtle tykes.
What'd you bring us, Auntie April? Huh? Some pizza? What about Donatello's workshop? Did you find an antidote for the revivifier ray? Nada.
Donatello, think! About your invention, do you have an antidote? Uh, an Auntie Dote? No, you're the only auntie I've got.
[Krang] Look, there's Pinkie McFingers arriving in his private yacht.
And now Big Louie and his henchmen.
[Shredder] And there's Mad Dog McMutt.
He's especially good at digging.
Ha.
Little do they realize, but soon I will be the only villain this city will have to contend with.
Ha ha ha ha! What's this? Only the story of the century! April O'Neil, get on the horn! [phone rings] What's up, Chief? Forget the stolen helium story.
Something bigger is breaking, and I want you to cover it! Can't you get Vernon to cover it? Things are breaking here, too.
If you don't do it, something else will be broken.
Your contract! Uh, in that case, what's the scoop? That's better.
Hoards of underworld characters are converging on a mysterious offshore island.
Now go check it out! Go, go, go, go! Oh, boy! We wanna go with you and help you catch those crooks! Please, can we? Please, can we? Huh? Please, Auntie April? Absolutely not.
It's much too dangerous.
I hope those little turtles aren't planning on following us.
No way.
I triple locked the pad personally.
Huh? Surprise! Oh, no.
Oh, no.
Are we there yet? I have to go.
Chill, dudes.
We'll scope out the island any minute now.
There it is.
I see it.
Someone sees us! You sure that ain't one of the invited guests? No, you simp.
It's that nosy reporter April O'Neil.
Get her! Oh, no! The rotors have been hit! Bummer! [shouting] You got a barf bag on this thing? [shouting] All right.
We got it.
Ha.
Let's go take April O'Neil prisoner.
Is everyone all right? Yeah.
That was neato! Can we go on that ride again? When do we fight the bad guys? I told you before, Leonardo, there'll be no fighting.
Ah, phooey.
We were looking forward to some real bone crushing head banging.
[gasps] Rocksteady and Bebop! We'll handle this, April.
Turtles to the rescue! Get 'em! So we have uninvited guests.
Shredder! So you're the one who's been luring all these criminals to this island.
Here's the rest of them, boss.
You were right.
They have shrunk to child size.
Oh, how cute.
Kitchy-kitchy-coo.
Still big enough to handle you, Mr.
Shred-head.
Yeah, take that! And that! Here! Get them! They mustn't escape! Right, boss.
Hand over that map, Mad Dog.
The treasure is mine.
That's what you think, Big Louie.
It belongs to me! [laughs] That's the end of the turtles.
Yeah, three of them, anyway.
Good news, boss.
The turtles are gone.
What? Oh, no.
Those mutants are big dummies, aren't they? Yeah.
They don't realize we love to play in water.
Guys, I hate to tell ya, but there's something weird going on here.
We're growing big, and our voices are changing.
We found the antidote to the revivifier ray.
It's plain old salt water.
Our natural environment.
Success, Krang.
The last of the turtles is my prisoner.
And do you have plans for him? He and the unfortunate Miss O'Neil will float off into the stratosphere along with all the underworld buffoons.
Thanks to myself, the turtles are finito, kaput, wiped out! Not in this lifetime, tin grin.
We're anything but wiped out.
Wouldn't you agree, compadre? Most monumentally, amigo.
Cowabunga! Don't just stand there, you horn heads! Get them! It'll be our pleasure, boss.
Stand back, guys.
This one's on me.
Or should I say on Rocksteady and Bebop! Foot soldiers, attack the turtles! My turn! Quickly, back to the Technodrome.
Oh, great! Another failure! Once again, I'll have to handle things myself.
[April] The island, it's floating away! So that's why Shredder stole those helium balloons.
Turtles, what are we waiting for? [all] Turtle power! The good news is we stopped the island from floating away.
And the bad news? Uh, it's starting to sink.
I don't mean to panic anyone, but we gotta get off of this thing.
Hold on.
We can't leave without April.
But where is she? Yoo-hoo, fellas! I'm over here! You repaired the rotor blade? Hey, Donatello's not the only one who can fix things.
Channel 6 news copter calling the Coastguard.
Proceed to latitude 72, longitude 13, and rescue sinking island survivors.
Oh, and be sure to bring plenty of handcuffs.
Thanks for helping me dismantle this revivifier.
Man, if I never see it again, it'll be too soon.
Greetings, my students.
Welcome back from your retreat, Master Splinter.
How refreshing to see you all working so diligently.
what has brought about this new attitude? Well, let's just say we've done a lot of growing up while you were away.
