Z is the name of the alien computer controling the centuries abandoned alien spaceship in "Bye. Bye Fly". It appears as a computer chip turned desktop with a virtual body in "Son Of Return of The Fly". Z is absent for no known reason in "Landlord of The Flies". Like said above it is a hiccup continuity-wise. unfortunately there are other error like Krang's bubble walker in Get Shredder instead of te andriod body he was left with. Production staff should be able to catch these errors when reading the script. Anyway, Z makes his third and final appearance in Revenge of The Fly seen in the form a communicator.

It doesn't really bother me, though.

As for the computer's name, I've seen the name "Z" or "Zee" used on TVTropes.org and the TMNTWiki, and I've adopted it for personal use (as a Canadian, I read "Z" as "Zed", though). But I can't find any source for the name, which bothers me. Is it just fanon?
I recall one theory how parts of the crashing spacecraft destroys the spider-web, allowing Baxter Stockman to fly away while the spider falls down to that planet's ground.

Yeah, but it's just a fan theory. Fan theories are fun to make up, and I like doing it, too, but it's not a substitute for canon.

Actually, I think that planet he crashes on is a reference to two things:

1. "The Spider and the Fly"
2. Baxter Stockman "being all bark and no bite". All he does in that episode ("Bye, Bye Fly") is acting tough, first scaring away the scientists who believe it's a temple, plan revenge on Shredder and Krang, try to fight off the turtles, but when everything comes around, he's just a "small little fly in the big Universe"

What episode is this screencap from? April is hanging over some kind of vat and the wooden beam to which her robe is tied is slowly cracking.

I think that's from one of the Euro vacation episodes where she's hanging over a cheese vat. It's the one with the two jewel thieves in Venice.

Hmm... all those European episodes really do run together in my memories. What a strange batch of shows!

Fixed that for you! I remember it was Holland, because I had to look up what it means to get in Dutch. What a stupid phrase... >_<

Thanks, gobo! Yeah, I've never quite understood the "get in the Dutch" phrase myself.

The only Euro eps that were really memorable was the Viking one, the Oriental express, and the first one or two in France.

I'm trying to remember the episode (pretty sure its within the Red Sky Episodes), where Donatello tells the other Turtles to head to the restrooms. Of course Raphael makes a quip about telling Donatello that he should have done that before leaving, but Donatello says it's useful because they can use the mirrors to deflect the lasers of the enemies they are currently fighting.

Do you guys remember which episode it was?

No, that's from the Season 3 finale eps. I think its the first one when they're in the huge army installation with all those robots.

Yes, that was in the Big Ripoff. Something similar did happen in the episode HAVOC in the Streets, a red sky episode. When the turtles battled Synapse, the turtles also used mirrors to reflect Synapse's lasers back toward him.

I was always pretty fond of the old show when I was in preschool, but my parents banned me from watching it after an episode or two, and a year or two later the old cartoon was taken off the air. To this day my strongest memory of the 87 series is one of the turtles (I suppose Raphael?) shouting angrily at the other turtles to not trust the Shredder, because "he was the one who turned Splinter into a rat!" (And then running off? I can't remember properly anymore)

I seem to also remember some kind of computer or a crushing conveyor belt, but that may have been from a separate episode.

But I've been trying to catch up on the old 80s series, and I never see any of the turtles get angry or angsty, they just throw around puns and Shredder is usually pretty up-front about wanting to kill the Turtles, there's no deception about wanting to help them or convince them to trust him.

Any ideas which episode it came from?

I'm guessing the one where they had the issue with trusting Shredder is Michaelangelo's Birthday. Three of the turtles allowed Shredder inside the turtle van to help them look for Michaelangelo.

Leonardo and Raphael were trapped in a pizza on a conveyor belt in the episode "Cowabunga, Shredhead." That episode also featured a holographic computer that spanned a few Michelangelo clones and zapped Shredder's mind to make him think he was Michelangelo.

I dunno, just made it through both suggested episodes and didn't hear any angry lines about Shredder turning Splinter into a rat. There weren't any other series/made-for-tv movies about Splinter once being human before the 2000's, were there?

('Cowabunga Shredhead' made me cry tears of laughter to hear Avery trying on his surfer voice. Seriously thank you)

You left that part out. That was ep5, "Shredder & Splintered". All 20th century kids I know called it "The Shredder Is Splintered" because that was the name of the VHS volume it was on. Also, it makes more sense.

Splinter was originally human in the original 'toon. It was mentioned in each of the first 5 eps, the S2 ep "Splinter No More" and the S3 clip-show "Blast From The Past".
