[ Rock ] Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtle power They're the world's most fearsome fighting team They're heroes in a half shell and they're green When the evil Shredder attacks Turtles fight back Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtle power [ Ends ] [ Leonardo ] Careful, Michelangelo.
This maze is full of traps.
Relax, dudes.
I know what I'm doing.
[ Donatello ] Which way out? If you like French-fried turtles, I'd go left.
[ Grinding ] Then again, if you prefer your appetizers on the half shell, we go right.
This is no joke, guys.
If we're gonna make it through this maze, we gotta split up.
Uh, dudes? Hello? Where'd you go? I gotta get out of here! - [ Growls ] - [ Screams ] Whoa! [ Growls ] [ Hisses ] [ Screaming ] [ Continues Screaming ] [ Screaming ] Help! Help! Help! Help! Relax, Michelangelo.
You're just having a bad dream.
[ Gasping ] No, dude, it was so real.
I told you not to play too much Virtual Invaders before bedtime.
[ Panting ] No.
I think this dream was trying to tell me something.
What do you think it means? That we're not coming back from our next battle.
[ Munching, Slurping ] If you spent as much time working as you do eating, perhaps my new vortex transporter would be done by now.
[ Crunching ] The Microbots are building it at the nuclear power plant on Earth.
[ Panting ] It will be complete anytime now.
[ Hiccups ] What-What about those Turtles? Well, now that I've isolated the active properties of their mutagen, I need only extract it from them to transform myself into a far more powerful being.
Powerful enough to destroy those meddling reptiles.
[ Chomping ] Speaking of powerful beings, Lord Dregg-- [ Gulps, Burps, Clears Throat ] Back in Dimension X, I ran into two evil creatures who said they knew the Turtles.
[ Slurping ] Really? Who were they? I believe their names were Shodzak and Krelm.
[ Slurping ] No, no.
Shredder and Krang.
Yes, that's it.
[ Pants ] They told me they battled the Turtles for years.
The one called Shredder said he once captured the reptiles with a miniaturization ray.
[ Leonardo ] Let's get 'em, Green Team! Krang, now! Uh, question.
Are we still turtles? Or did Shredder just turn us into shrimp? This is the last time you get underfoot, Turtles! What happened then? [ Crunching ] Um.
Shredder said he destroyed the Turtles.
But, he was obviously-- [ Burps ] lying.
Evil beings with knowledge of the Turtles and Earth technology.
Yes.
Yes, it'll work.
You've just given me a brilliant idea, Mung.
[ Gulps ] I have? I'll soon have enough knowledge and power to conquer all the galaxies.
I think it's gonna work.
Thank goodness! You've finally fixed the microwave.
- I'll get the burritos.
- No.
I formulated a variation of the vortex crystal's radiation that cured us.
According to the virtual simulation I ran, it will stop your mutations, Carter.
I want to be normal, but I can do things as a mutant I couldn't do as a regular guy.
Now how do I decide which is the right thing to do? When does the fly decide to fly? That's easy.
When it sees a flyswatter.
You jest, Raphael.
- Nevertheless, you are right.
- You're kidding.
All creatures, great and small, make their decisions based on their own survival.
But only man is capable of making decisions based on the survival of others as well.
I guess that means I have to do what's best for everyone, not just myself.
Right, Sensei? Hmm.
You are a wise student, Carter.
Student is right.
I've made up my mind.
I'm going back to college.
I got a lot to learn.
As a normal guy, not a mutant.
Well, okay, then.
Hook him up, guys.
I'll charge up the de-mutation ray.
His genes are stable.
You did it, Donatello.
Congratulations! You're normal again! All right, way to go, dude! I think it's time to party.
Uh, no, thanks, guys.
I hate good-byes.
So let's make this a short one.
Thank you for everything you've taught me, Sensei.
Hey-Hey, wait, Carter.
You don't have to go right now, do you? When the eagle is ready to fly, there is nothing to be gained by remaining in the nest.
Um.
Bye.
Bye.
Later, dude.
- So long, Carter.
- Boy, I'm sure gonna miss him.
Yeah, me too.
Hey, is that a tear, Michelangelo? Wha-- Who, me? No way, dude.
The-- Carter's exhaust must have gotten in my eye.
This is great stuff, April.
This is gonna be the lead story for tonight's 11:00 report.
Gee, thanks, Bill.
I'll get right on to my next story.
Hmm.
The Microbots did an excellent job.
- Let's see how it works.
- Yes, Lord Dregg.
Ah, transporter coordinates are locked onto Dimension X.
Scanning for bio signs.
We're locked onto the targets.
Well, transport them.
Yes, my lord.
[ Powering Down ] What's wrong? Uh, nothing, Lord Dregg.
Transporting from Dimension X requires billions of watts of electricity.
It will take a moment to put all the power online.
[ Woman Exclaiming ] [ Man ] Oh, no! It's all right.
It's just a power failure.
The elevator can't fall.
Whoa! [ Screaming ] [ Shouts ] [ Screaming ] - What? - [ Tires Screeching ] We're out of control! [ Shouts ] [ Passengers Screaming ] What happened? I don't know.
The power went out.
All right.
Who forgot to pay the power bill? No one.
The power must be out in the entire city.
And it's a good thing.
How come? Because we're standing in water! Oh, no! The city water pumps have shut down, which means the runoff isn't being diverted to the sea.
We've gotta get out of here before we get flushed down the drain! Whoa! [ All Screaming ] I guess it's a little too late to call a plumber! [ All Screaming ] Oh! [ Gasps ] Let me out! Get out of the way! [ Panting ] Next time I'm taking the stairs.
Got to stop the trolley! [ Passengers Screaming ] Thanks, kid.
You saved our lives.
Barely.
I wonder if curing my mutation was such a good idea.
Ah, forget it, Carter.
There's no turning back now.
Whoa! [ Screaming ] [ Shouts ] Cowabunga, dudes! I found a surfboard! [ Growls ] Whoa! Whoa! I thought we were the only reptiles living in the sewer.
Oh! Don't look now, guys, but I think we're coming to the end! - Of the sewer? - No, our lives! [ All ] Whoa! [ Grunts ] Sensei! [ All ] Whoa! Welcome.
- Who are you? - I am Dregg.
Conqueror of worlds, ruler of men.
I have brought you from Dimension X and transported you back to Earth.
And just why is that? I need your help to destroy the Turtles.
If you're such a great conqueror, what do you need our help for? You've been gone for some time now.
Otherwise, you'd know that the Turtles have hyper-mutant powers.
But together, we can destroy them.
Then the Earth will be ours to divide as we please.
And if we refuse? In that case, I suppose we have only one choice.
Laser-proof plastic, loser! One move, Mung, and you're sliced alien.
Nice meeting you, Dregg.
Conqueror-- in your dreams.
After them, you fools! [ All ] Whoa! [ Groans ] That was better than Wally's Water World, dudes.
Could we do it again? Oh, man.
I think your brain's waterlogged, Michelangelo.
We gotta find Master Splinter.
Well, maybe he'll be flushed out another pipe down the beach.
That fool, Dregg, has given us another chance to destroy the Turtles and take over where we left off.
We'll have to take out Dregg first.
Oh! Oh, great.
What's holding up the traffic now? Ah! Shredder? Krang? I can't believe it! Well, believe it, sister.
And get moving! No-No! Please, not me.
I've retired from the "stop the super villain from conquering the world" business.
Now! [ Tires Screeching ] Hello? Sensei? [ Gasps ] Relax, Leonardo.
It's just a rat.
[ Splinter ] Never underestimate a creature of Earth.
Hey! Master Splinter! You might be surprised at its abilities.
[ April Whispering ] Guys! - Shh.
- Can you hear me? It's the Turtlecom.
What's up, April? I'm at Hudson and 15th.
I've got a little trouble here.
Actually, she's in a great deal of trouble.
Shredder! How did Metalhead get out of Dimension X? Who cares? We've gotta save April.
Come on! The Turtle van's back at the lair.
Forget it.
There isn't time! [ Whistles ] - No way! - Yes way! Thataway! We're coming up on Hudson.
They gotta be around here somewhere.
Hey, what's that for? There's a surcharge for ambulance service.
Especially when it's for me! Now! I'm canceling your blaster permit! [ Grunts ] [ Shouts ] Who says you can never get a cab in this city? Lord Dregg.
[ Pants ] I'm transferring the Turtles' coordinates to your computer now.
Coordinates locked in.
And now I'll have their mutagen and become the most powerful being in the world.
[ Groans ] You know, something tells me we missed that turn onto 16th.
[ Dregg ] Welcome back, my friends.
Thank you for delivering the Turtles.
I suggest none of you resists.
If there's one thing you can count on, Dregg, it's that we're gonna resist.
[ All ] Turtle power! Oh, great! There goes my insurance premium.
[ Growls ] Eww! Get a life, guano breath.
No fare is worth this kind of stress! [ Growls ] You win.
I surrender.
[ Groans ] Game's over, you repugnant reptile.
Let him go.
Drop your weapons.
Whatever you say, Krang.
Now! Whoa, whoa! [ Tires Screeching ] There isn't much time.
Join me, and we'll stop the Turtles together then rule the planet.
Under the circumstances, we really don't have any choice.
[ All ] Whoa! There's one chance to stop them.
Cover me! There.
I've set the coordinates.
- On what? - Our lair.
Hang on! [ Dregg ] Give up, Turtles.
You're outnumbered.
[ All Shouting ] Looks like your little game is over, Dregg.
But, hey, don't worry.
We got you three, lovely one-way coach transporter tickets, back to Dimension X.
No! I won't go back to Dimension X! [ Beeping ] He's draining the reactor core! There will be a meltdown in 20 seconds! - Well, there goes the neighborhood.
- We've gotta stop it! [ Grunts ] [ Gasps ] Give up, or you'll be needing a new leader! [ Sighs ] I hope the guys are okay.
Huh.
What am I talking about? They did fine before I came along.
They'll do fine without me.
Uh, does this remind you of something? Yes.
The Invasion of the Aliezoids, directed by Ed Cood, 1957.
Great! Our life's been reduced to a B movie.
In a few minutes, I will be the most powerful being in the universe.
Uh, you probably don't want to hear this, Dregg, but you're showing definite symptoms of galactic megalomania with delusions of cosmic consciousness.
In other words, you're a wacko.
[ Murmurs ] The elements you stole from me to stabilize your mutations have genetically incubated in your bodies.
[ Raphael ] You mean, you wanted us to stabilize our mutations? Of course.
It was the only way I could create the super mutagen.
Mung, start the transfusion, will you? Oh, yes-- [ Panting ] Lord Dregg.
Why do I get the feeling this isn't going to be covered under our health insurance? Is it okay to be pumping that stuff out of us? Oh, don't worry.
You won't be needing it any longer.
It's time.
Yes, it is.
[ Groans ] Time for us to take over.
You promised to work with me.
Shredder takes orders from no one.
Especially an alien.
[ Sighs ] Especially an incredibly ugly alien.
But I can make you a super being.
We don't need you for that, Dregg.
Now get on the table.
You fools don't know what you're doing.
You have a new leader now, Mung.
Prepare the apparatus to transfuse their life energy into Krang and me.
As you wish.
Activate the transformation, Mung.
[ Panting ] I said, activate the-- [ Grunting ] No! That's it, my little friends.
Now build me two more operating tables.
What are you going to do to us? What I intended to do all along.
Drain the mutagen from the Turtles and absorb your mental energy, making myself the most powerful and intelligent mutant in all the universe.
Oh, and by the way, you'll all be drained of your life energy in the process.
[ Panting ] Dregg, stop! [ Moaning ] [ All Moaning ] It's working, Lord Dregg.
[ Panting ] It's working! [ Laughs ] My dream.
My dream!
