Cartoon humor in Manhattan Project

The first time I played TMNT3 on NES, I noticed that some of the game's humor is a throwback to the slapstick of Looney Toons et al. Examples include being flattened like a pancake by Foot anvils, falling out of your turtle shell, and having a soot-covered face after being blasted. This wouldn't be worth mentioning if not for the fact that this sort of slapstick never occurred in the OT. I found it kind of jarring. I was curious if it gave anyone else pause when playing.

Part of me wonders if this had anything to do with Battletoads having come out months before. Said game contained the same kind of humor.
