An attempt at a thorough reference list to the Old Toon

Hello all, Jester here. Like I said when the TMNT wiki was first introduced I want to go all out and make a guide to Pizza references, pop culture points, and mistakes from the OT. here's what I have so far...and this is only the first 2 epiosdes.

Jester's Reference Guide to the TMNT

TMNT Episode Guide

Episode 1: Turtle Tracks
Written by: David Wise and Patti Howeth

Cast:
• James Avery: Shredder
• Townsend Coleman: Michaelangelo, Foot Critic 1 (“Impudent dog, bow before our beloved master!”), Fake Teeth/Goofy Noses Vender,
• Cam Clark: Leonardo, Rocksteady, Sound Technician
• Pat Fraley: Vernon Fenwick, Burne Thompson, Card Shark
• Barry Gordon: Donatello, Bebop, Foot Critic 2? (“For this misdeed you should be banished from the Foot Clan…”),
• Renae Jacobs: April O’Neil,
• Tress MacNeille: Gun Toting Granny, Manhattan Security Services Receptionist
• Rob Paulsen: Raphael, ACME Guy (“I have absolutely no idea.”), Camera Man, Ninja Server,
• Peter Renaday: Splinter, Professor (“It’s made in Japan.”), Master Teacher (“I say throw the bum out!”), Ninja Behind the Counter,


Mistakes:
1. When April attempts to leave the Lair, she is stopped by Donatello, who speaks with Raphael’s voice.
2. Occasionally the top of the Turtles plastrons are green when seen in the opening at the top of their trench coats.
3. While the Turtles slide down the rope bridge to the neighboring roof, Donatello’s wrist bands are his skin tone, not purple.
4. After the Turtles slide down the rope and onto the neighboring rooftop, there are 2 Leonardos and 2 Raphaels. There is no sign of Michaelangelo.
5. Though one of Leonardo’s swords is still on the roof, it appears and reappears in its scabbard throughout the rest of the episode.
6. Despite Michaelangelo being seen caring only one set of nunchucks, in battle he uses two pairs. This happens off and on throughout the first season.

Pizza References:
1. Strange toppings introduced. (Pepperoni and ice cream, jelly beans and mushrooms, anchovies and peanut butter, sashimi, whipped cream, and bananas and sausage specifically)
2. Michaelangelo calls himself, “Master of the whirling pizzas.”
3. The Ninja Pizza Pizzeria
4. The Turtles take nothing seriously, aside from pizza.

Catchphrase Countdown:
1. Shredder: “What the Devil!”
2. Michaelangelo: “Pizza Time!”
3. Shredder calls the punks “idiots” and “Cretans”.
4. Raphael: “Out of your shell”
5. Michaelangelo: “Cowabunga!”

Pop Culture References:
1. Raphael: “Try again Mr. Wizard!”
(A reference to the 80’s educational TV series, Mr. Wizard)
2. Raphael: “Here’s lookin’ at you kid!”
(A parody of Humphrey Bogart from Casablanca)

Fourth Wall Breaking Humor:
1. Donatello: “I love saying lines like that!”

Wacky Inventions:
1. Mutagen


Notables:
1. Krang doesn’t appear in this episode.
2. Pat Fraley voices Vernon Fenwick for the five episode pilot. In the sixth episode, Return of the Shredder (the first episode of season one), Peter Renaday takes over Vernon’s voice.


Episode 2: Enter the Shredder
Written by: David Wise and Patti Howeth

Cast:
@ James Avery: Shredder,
@ Townsend Coleman: Michaelangelo,
@ Cam Clark: Leonardo, Rocksteady,
@ Pat Fraley: Krang, Burne Thompson, Vernon Fenwick
@ Barry Gordon: Donatello, Bebop,
@ Renae Jacobs: April O’Neil,
@ Rob Paulsen: Raphael,
@ Peter Renaday: Splinter
@ The Robot Rovers sound to be voiced by multiple cast members.


Mistakes:
1. Leonardo speaking in Raphael’s voice: “I gotta feelin’ we’re in Kansas anymore, Uncle Toto.”
2. As Shredder says, “Indeed he is.” In response to Donatello’s mussing that Splinter’s in trouble, Michaelangelo’s bandana changes colors from orange to purple.
3. When Raphael says, “Take your time why don’t ya!” as Donatello causes the moving walls to retract, his bandana goes from red to orange.
4. Michaelangelo shrieks a warning to Raphael, in what sounds like Raphael’s own voice.
5. When Raphael’s voice says “More bad news,” Leonardo’s head moves suggesting he’s saying the line.
6. When Michaelangelo says, “Jump for it!” his bandana is red, and changes as the Turtles jump.
7. When Bebop and Rocksteady bust through the pavement to face the Turtles, Bebop’s shirt is yellow instead of red.
8. Leonardo, in the fight with Bebop and Rocksteady, jumps in the air with his sword ready to cut Bebop’s gun. When he comes back in to shot, he’s wearing red and slices the gun. Raphael, in his trademark red, kicks Bebop in the chest, knocking him to the ground. Then Raphael somehow is able to jam his sai into Rocksteady’s gun as Bebop continues to fall off screen.
9. As Rocksteady tries to uses his teeth to get out of the zoo cage, his nose is seen behind the bar he’s “chewing”.
10. Raphael’s “R” is clearly visible as the Turtles talk to April, but Michaelangelo’s “M” is missing.


Pizza References:
1. Pizza for breakfast (topped with Corn Flakes, Raisin Bran, and Choco-Puffs)
2. Michaelangelo: “Now that’s what I call a serious pizza!”

Catchphrase Counter:
1. Shredder: “That’s quite a brain you’ve got, Krang.”
Krang: “Of course it is, it’s all I’ve got.”
2. Raphael: “I hate it when he says that!” (and later “I really wish you’d stop saying things like that.”)
3. “Turtles fight with honor!”
4. Shredder: “Bebop, Rocksteady Destroy them!”
5. Shredder: “You idiots!”
6. Rocksteady: “Say your prayers, Toitles.”

Pop Culture References:
1. Michaelangelo: “That dude’s drivin’ Shay Stadium around under the city!”
(A reference to the baseball stadium in NYC, home of the New York Mets.)
2. Leonardo/Raphael: “I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Uncle Toto.”
(A obvious reference to the Wizard of Oz)

Wacky Inventions:
1. The Shredder’s Robots
2. The Technodrome

Any helps or corrections welcome.

Nice job! I like the extensive voice casts and all the details about the episodes. The only suggestion I have is to maybe note the source of each of the pop culture references as you did for the second one for the first episode. Keep up the great work!

Other than some grammatical junk, it's really good. But, you need to put the extra A in Michaelangelo's name. That's important Ninja Turtles history.

In the cast list:
"Tress MacNeille: Gun Totting Granny, Manhattan Security Services Receptionist"

That would be Gun Toting Nanny. Just a typo that jumped out.

Good Point Krang. It was the plan, I just haven't goten around to puting the refrence to the refrence there.

Gobo, I wasn't sure if I should keep the "a"...I guess i will.

Episode 3: A Thing About Rats
Written by: David Wise and Patti Howeth

Cast:
@ James Avery: Shredder,
@ Townsend Coleman: Michaelangelo, Computer Voice?
@ Cam Clark: Leonardo, Rocksteady,
@ Pat Fraley: Krang, Burne Thompson, Baxter Stockman
@ Barry Gordon: Donatello,
@ Renae Jacobs: April O’Neil,
@ Rob Paulsen: Raphael,
@ Peter Renaday: Splinter, Ajax’s Pest Control Owner

Mistakes:
1. Raphael’s belt tie is missing in the opening scene.
2. Baxter’s neck goes from flesh tone to white while he’s pitching his Mousers.
3. Splinter’s nose blinks brown while he’s facing the Mousers.
4. Leonardo’s mouth never moves when he says, “Hang on, Master Splinter.”
5. As Donatello reads “Trademark: Baxter Stockman Inventions,” Michaelangelo’s arm is seen holding the Mouser foot. When we see Donatello he is looking at a Mouser head.
6. Shredder’s neck is purple rather than flesh-tone for most of the episode.
7. Donatello says “So, if there are hundreds of them now, but his bandana is orange.
8. As the Turtles, April and Splinter run for the ropes, 2 Mousers block the window. Michaelangelo kicks one, the other just vanishes.
9. Using stock footage from earlier in the episode at the end several errors occur. April is seen driving in the shot before, but in the reused footage Michaelangelo is driving. Also where Donatello talking in the clip the first time makes sense, here Raphael’s voice is heard saying the lines about Michaelangelo eating too much pizza, and Donatello’s mouth moves.

Pizza References:
1. Michaelangelo attempts to make instant pizza when the Turtles ransack April’s apartment.
2. Raphael: “Michaelangelo, I do believe you’ve finally had one pizza too many.”

Catchphrase Counter:
1. Shredder: “Seek out Hamato Yoshi, and DESTROY HIM!” (and later “Now my children, seek out Hamato Yoshi, the four Turtle, and that news-woman April O’Neil. Destroy them all!!)
2. Shredder calls Michaelangelo an “impudent idiot!”

Forth Wall Breaking Humor:
1. Raphael: “They aren’t paying me enough to take this kind of abuse.”

Wacky Inventions:
1. The Mousers
2. Turtle Ski Cycle

Notables:
1. Bebop appears in this episode but has no lines.

@ Barry Gordon: Donatello, Bebop
@ Renae Jacobs: April O’Neil,
@ Tress MacNeille: Kala
@ Rob Paulsen: Raphael, Clown 2?
@ Thom Pinto: Dask,
@ Peter Renaday: Splinter, General Traag


Mistakes:
1. When Shredder calls Bebop and Rocksteady losers, Bebop’s glasses are black.
2. When Shredder mentions that the Neutrinos have escaped, Bebop’s glasses and Mohawk are brown.
3. Graninator speaks with Traag’s voice
4. Traag and Graninator shot at the Turtles as they jump at them, but all you see are stills of the jumping Turtles and Traag and Graninartor.
5. In one cut of Raphael in the gunner’s seat, the seat belts are green.
6. When Leonardo is fighting Bebop and Rocksteady in the Technodrome, he is grabbed by Rocksteady’s grey hand, when we pull away we see Bebop holding Leonardo. The voice that says “Gotcha Shell-brain!” is also Rocksteady’s.
7. Michaelangelo breaks a pair of his nunchucks on Traag, but later when he’s holding both pair they are undamaged.

Pizza References:
1. Michaelangelo: “All this gear and you left out the pizza oven.”
2. Michaelangelo: “Pizza Time!”

2. Michaelangelo screams “Pizza Time!” as the Turtles first drive the Turtle Van.
3. Michaelangelo also says “Cowabunga!” during this sequence.
4. Michaelangelo says “Gun it, April!” twice in this episode.
5. Krang calls Saki an “imbecile.”
6. Traag calls Graninator an “idiot.”
7. Michaelangelo says, “Cowabunga!” as he and Raphael try to get Krang.

Pop Culture References:
1. Raphael: “Book um Don-o!”
(A parody of the phrase, “Book um Dan-o!” from Hawaii Five-O.)
2. Michaelangelo: “A little wax and it’ll shine like new.”
(Turtle Wax is used to fix it, for obvious reasons)
3. Dask calls earth the Planet of the Squares, possible a reference to Planet of the Apes.
4. Raphael: “Some dirty rat must have squealed to the coppers about us, meh.”
(A James Cagney reference.)
5. April reads the Turtles their favorite fable, the Tortoise and the Hare.

Wacky Inventions:
1. Turtle Van
2. Stone Warrior Weather Maker

Notables:
1. The Twin Towers are mentioned in this episode.
2. All we know of Krang’s origin is summed up in this episode.
3. Michaelangelo’s relationship with Kala begins to develop.
4. Turtle Com sound effects heard as Star Mobile effects.

5. When the Turtles and Splinter are hanging from the rope after the commercial break, Raphael is colored purple.
6. Raphael closes his hand around his Turtle Com to punch a Foot Soldier, but when he opens his hands it’s gone.
7. At one point when Splinter faces Shredder, his nose is brown.
8. When the Turtles view Krang in his body through the Technodrome’s monitors, Raphael’s belt tie is missing and doesn’t reappear until the Turtles turn to stop Krang from opening the portal.
9. As Raphael talks about shrinking Krang down, he and Donatello switch bandana colors and back again.
10. At one point where Krang takes a swipe at the glider, his body’s nose is the same color as his visor.
11. When Michaelangelo says, “Let’s eradicate this creep, man” Raphael’s elbow pad is missing.
12. The Bat mutant that was used to demonstrate the Retro-Mutagen Ray is seen in a cage in the Technodrome when Krang calls for Traag.

(This is the name of a song by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles)

The Girly Grunt...

You asked...and here it is. I used only the 2 from Evil Eye because I couldn't get the Shrinking Turtles episode to import into Movie Maker.

How in the world did the editors let an error like that slip?

Surely they had enough Turtle grunts to choose from!

It's nice to see something along the lines of the Transformers community of dedication being done on the wiki now. Keep up the great work and I will pitch in when I can.

Great stuff here. I don't know if anybody else already did this but I would like to point out that the title to episode 8 is most likely a reference to the 1955 movie "It Came from Beneath the Sea".

Didn't have time to look through the whole thread, but:

I thought the voice of Donatello was the guy who voiced 'Foot Critic 2'.

It's possible...like I said, I'm really just guessing. There are others I'm not sure about.

Not trying to be too critical here, but did Pat Fraley really do Vernon's voice in the first season? To me it just sounds like Peter Renaday changed his inflection (if that's the right word I'm looking for) after first season.

I need to get a life or something

EDIT: After checking the IMDB, it appears you're 100% correct.
