I'll have to ponder this and post mine after work. Mine won't be much different from yours though. Definitely will add Tale of the Yokai.

I haven't decided my order but mine will include:

Owari, I think his name is Baxter Stockman, enemy of my enemy, Rise, tales of the Yokai, new girl in town, within the woods. I'll edit later with the other 3.

Edit: Well I still can't get the list down and I'm just not going to start ordering them. The above and:
The Gauntlet
Vengeance is mine (though I didn't like the end for Karai)
Invasion (though poor Leo took such a beating)

Mentions: The Forgotten Swordsman (good fighting scenes), The Wrath of Tiger Claw, Vision Quest, some of the last of season 4 arc and although it's a filler I did enjoy the Squirrelanoids ep.

I'm going to have to go back and rewatch the entire series before I can even BEGIN to choose my top ten.

I tend to remember funny lines and funny moments but can't tell you what episodes or season they appeared in. :D

I'll never get over I KNEW YOU ATE MY PIZZA, YOU LIAR.

And if you didn't read that in Mikey's voice, you fail at life. :lol:

My Preliminary list looks like this

"I Think His Name is Baxter Stockman"
"Mousers Attack!"
"The Good, the Bad, and Casey Jones"
"Casey Jones vs the Underworld"
"The War for Dimension X"
"The Arena of Carnage"
"Darkest Plight"
"Tokka vs. the World"
"Lone Rat and Cubs"
"I, Monster"

I'd actually have to rewatch to rank them, but in general I'd say these ones would probably be on there.

09-30-2017, 01:04 PM
I really have to rewatch the whole show as a whole before I make my list. I'm rewatching Season 1 now, it'll take a while before I finish rewatching the whole series.

Ooh, tough! I'll rewatch everything one day and make a definitive list, maybe even ranked. My initial "top 10" had like, 40 episodes, but here is my list (in chronological order), combining multi-part stories into one entry:

1. Enemy of my Enemy
2. Showdown
3. The Wrath of Tiger Claw
4. Vengeance is Mine
5. Into Dimension X/The Invasion
6. Tale of the Yokai
7. The Super Shredder/Darkest Plight
8. Requiem/Owari
9. Usagi Yojimbo arc
10. Mad Raph

But I want to single out what I think are the top 3, and these are actually ranked:

3. Tale of the Yokai
2. Vengeance is Mine
1. Requiem

Honorable mentions (aka #11-20) in chronological order:

11. It Came From the Depths
12. New Girl in Town
13. Of Rats and Men
14. The Manhattan Project
15. The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman
16. Pizza Face
17. Buried Secrets
18. Vision Quest
19. Dinosaur Seen in Sewers/Annihilation:Earth
20. Lone Rat and Cubs

And for fun, here's how I'd rank the seasons:

5. Season 4
4. Season 3
3. Season 1
2. Season 5
1. Season 2

I don't think there was a bad season, but some seasons had a clear hit:miss ratio. So while I think the Super Shredder story in the back half of season 4 is some of the strongest, space was a little hit or miss.

But why rank season 2 #1? I think Karai's story is the strongest thread in the series, and that storyline was at its peak in season 2. In addition to that, the season had the most of my "top 20" episodes, introduced some of my favorite characters (classics and originals), and had one of the best finales of any TMNT series.

That line appeared in the pulverizer. It occurred when Donnie is mixing up an antidote to Fishfaces venom and he asks Mikey if Raph is experiencing nausea. Mikey responds with no only to turn around and see Raph about to vomit

I'd have to watch the remaining episodes of season 5 and rewatch parts of the series to make an accurate list. I do know that five that spring to mind are Slash and Destroy, Never Say Xever, The Invasion, Yojimbo, and Lone Rat and Cubs.

If we were going a top 10 fillers, Fungus Humungous might as well be at the top of the list. I just rewatched it now and it's by far one of the funniest filler episodes of the series. The trippy visuals with all the mushrooms dancing around while the nutcracker theme played has me laughing. :lol:

All the Turtles fears too were played for laughs with Raph/roaches, Mike/Squirrelnoids, Don/April, Casey/rats....made for some pretty damn funny scenes. The shot where Mike's head falls off and a bunch of roaches pour out too, lol. The Super Mario joke by Mikey, etc. I also loved how Leonardo defeated Fungus Humungus and it had proper closure.

It's also probably one of the most visually appealing eps of the series. All the blue highlights on the mushrooms growing on the walls and the funny scenery, what a great episode.

Yeah, it's always been a favorite of mine too. I was so surprised how great it was, since I wasn't expecting anything good.
