LOL Okay, props for the great twist ending. Kid Baxter... Kind of made up for how annoying April got. That girl just isn't entirely right in the head...

So, I guess we can scratch off Baxter showing up as any kind of real threat, but maybe the kid will keep up with the robot theme and be a minor issue. (Although his motivation for becoming a foe would be what, no donations?)

"It's like Christmas morning for food." Or something like that. This girl has clearly never been inside a grocery store...?

Good episode love the interactions between Mikey and Leo and I love that April was enjoying the spooky stuff.

Leo calls Mikey, Miguel

Baxter Stockman is now Baxter Stockboy!!!!!!!

How much of a threat can Baxter be in this series?

Even if he wasn't called "Stockboii", I still I would have figured it out. Because, you know, the design is pretty much a chibified 4Kids Baxter.


Anyway, would Baxter be a threat in this series? Obviously they made him a child in order to make him more comedic, but then again all the villains in this show are comedic. He's a threat in the sense that any other villain in this series is.

It is not Baxter Stockman. Just a kid named Baxter. Not the famous Baxter Stockman. Baxter Stockaman as a kid however can still be a threat but only to other kids. Not ninjas and mutants because if he attacks they willl kill him with just one hit(if he was a kid) but iam sure this kid is not him. Baxter is realy a threat only when he is inside a huge robot with big guns. As a normal human or mutant he is not threat to anyone at all. He is a coward when he dont have any weapons or robot armor.

Sooo... is he going to post the video he took of Leo and Mikey (and April)? They didn't exactly demand he erase it or threaten him not to post it.

edit: Never mind, Mikey(?) does say they're taking the phone/footage with them. At least they had brains enough to do that that.

I want to figure out what the hell you're saying, I just believe I'll get an aneurysm if I think too hard about your inane post. The mere fact that you begin your statement by dismissing the kid as this show's interpretation of Baxter Stockman, it's just so... So... Well here's the headache, I knew it would come...

Haven't seen the ep, can someone post a screencap? Is he black? I guess him being the same age as April would make sense. Funny how the 2012 series kept Baxter as an adult.

  1. He is black, I already said he looks like chibi 4Kids Baxter.
  2. He's actually way younger than April, like 8 at most.
  3. Why is it funny that the last show kept him as an adult?

Because he could have been a teen like April/Casey last time too but wasn't.

Yeah but why would they have done that?

Want to know something funny? Prior to this episode, I thought that if Baxter were to appear in this series, he'd be an evil science teacher at April's school.

When they mentioned he was called "Stockboii" I turned to my brother and said "So when he grows up, he'll be a Stockman?" While I figured the name and design may have been a shout-out to Baxter, I actually did not expect him to BE Baxter!

Great episode and reveal. Having Baxter Stockman be a kid genius is a clever change of pace.

Thought it was funny when Leo said how long is this freezer aisle?

He might be 2003 Baxter when he was a kid. That when he grew up he created a portal and traveled to 2003 dimension. Just how 1987 krang was coming from the 2012 dimension.

I also really liked the fact that they made an Annoying YouTube Rando villain
