who the heck were Touch and Go?

Watching Totally Turtles and the episode on us Touch and Go, but were the 2 of them ever really given an origin or anything?

You don't remember them? They were in two episodes, this one and one of the Nobody episodes, and that was the last you saw of them. They were basically normal humans with some electrical powers.

They weren't given any origin iirc. I didn't care much about them.

Honestly, 4kids were rather hit and miss when it came to making villains.

There were in two episodes of season 3. The first one "Touch and Go" saw Hun employ the James Bond villain rip offs with a symbiotic power up to distract the Turtles. They faced off with Michelangelo and Splinter and then again just a couple of episodes later appear in Nobody's Fool. I don't remember their exact role, but they distract Michelangelo and Leonardo and are act as fodder easily defeated by being kept apart. Raphael and Donatello never meet them and the assassins never appear again.

They also appear in Mutant Nightmare, the game that corresponds to this season.

I remember they were in the series, I just wondered if anything was really known about them.

From TurtlePedia:

Quote:
Paul and Darby were twin brothers born in Scaramouche, Indiana. They were sent to separate orphanages and adopted to families on the opposite ends of the state. When they were teens, they began running with tough crowds. One night, the gangs each were associated with crossed paths to settle a long-standing turf war. Darby punched Paul, but found that not only was Paul uninjured, but they both activated a super power upon contact: Darby gained super strength and durability, while Paul was gifted superhuman speed and stamina. Realizing that this meant much more than their petty turf war, they both left their respective gangs and went on a long search to find that their mother was Touchango, an enemy of the original Justice Force who had the same powers that Paul and Darby both had. Thus, they began working together on contract work, hiring them selves out to whatever criminal element could pay their exorbitant fees.

I guess the simple answer is "no" then knowing Ninjister's pranking us with e description. Dan Berger may have notes available,but I would assume James Bond villain tribute plot devices that could only carry so far.

They reminded me of Batman:TAS villains which is why I liked them.

Hated the characters originally, because it was a very boring episode compared to the rest of S3, but now I must admit I like the idea of the characters and the episode in general

I’m guessing they’re robots.

That music band “The Cars” sang a song called “Touch and Go”. I always wondered if they were named after that song.

They were okay but they could have been better if they showed up more

Well, they were limited in concept because all you have to do is keep them apart until they run out of energy.
