Good episode. You know what's weird? I have this kids book from when I was little and it feaures the exact same story! Now, I realize that this is based off Don's microseries comic, but I was looking through the book as I was watching the episode and even some of the lines are the same. It's just weird is all.

I really liked this episode! It was really accurate to the comic, except for the ending. It sucks they skipped out on the pasrt where Raph yells at Don about the water and Don glares at him and Raph goes "whats eating him?!"
But all in all, it was awesome!

Yay for April wearing a different shirt! No more ass crack!!!!

Cant wait for next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anybody notice the movie reference? April tells them to hide, and turns around and they're gone. Then, when the guy at the door sees Mikey and does a double take, all thats there is a teddy bear. Complete throwback to TMNT 1. But, with that said, in the voice of Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons with a modified quote:

BEST...EPISODE...EVER!

That was a great episode. It's gotta be one of my favorites so far.

Great ep! What I REALLY like about it is the fact that it was very faithful to the comic version.

Again, you have to be watching Cramp Twins and in a commercial, it'll show you. It has Shredder in it!

good episode . . . but you'd think that raph would be really pissed that don never fixed the water heater

maybe they'll touch on that in the beginning of the next ep . . . that would be cool

Loved it (of course) especaily the whole TMNT movie 1 referance, and the scean after with Donny, Mikey, and April. "He did it!" Hehehe. My only problems are that they didn't give us a very good look at maskless Raphael, and they cut out the scene between Raphael and Donny at the end...oh well. Preview for next episode was durring Cramp Twins again *lame grumble* anyhow. It's the part where Leo gets beaten up by the footsies. "Leo's the last turtle you have to worry about....LEO! Who did this to you?!"

There's a reason the preview has been moved to Cramp Twins. It's so you have to watch the crap to see the preview for the best show ever. Notice April's shirt was yellow. This episode rocked.

[* HT pokes her head into post *]

SLEEPing...?! Bah.. my hoof!

I was WATCHING the show, you know since it doesn't come on until 9:30 here. Then... I had to reread the Don micro, to find how much they did word for word from it.

Yes, there was a children's book based on the Don microseries, so you're not crazy. That book was how I first read this story. It really is a neat little tricky way to have the kids reading the Mirage book without even knowing it.

This episode was great .. dare I say: perfect? Loved the little TMNT1 disappearing act. Although I was a bit disappointed Mike and Don weren't eating pork rinds..

I would definately consider this story one of the all-time classics, and justice has been done to it in animation. Did anyone else notice the awesome score during the battle? I am most impressed when I hear vocals! Now I really want a soundtrack!

And did anyone else think Kirby sounded like the guy in Nano?

I forced myself to watch Cramp Twins until I saw the preview for next week because the Leo microseries story arc is my all-time favorite. I CAN'T WAIT!

i really liked how april is wearing different clothes. . . hopefully they realize that the other clothes were a bit inappropriate and this will be a permanent change. regardless of what they wanted it to be, it sure looked like an ass to me . . .

anyways, that episode seemed to fly by. when kirby was drawing don, i thought he was going to create an army of dons. that would have been cool. but shouldn't the anti -gravity device made them float off instead of stopping in mid air? oh well.

i liked the dedication at the start of the ep too. and i guess when kirby got stuck in the dream world, it kinda symbolizes how he's gone now . . .

all in all, good ep. but i think the next two eps will be awesome!

Except that the story was originally written before Kirby passed away and still had the same ending.
