Official Ep Discussion #11 "Mousers Attack!"

When simultaneous threats from the Purple Dragons and Baxter Stockman’s mechanical Mousers force the Turtles to split into two groups, Donnie & Mikey must prove that their “B Team” is just as valuable as Leo & Raph’s “A Team.”

When it rains, it pours on our poor turtles...

So, Not only are they dealing with Shredder, the newly mutated DogPound and the Foot Soldiers... but now they've got a new surprise - and it likes to Bite. It seems our bungling Baxter Stockman has been tinkering, and has come back prepared and ready to show off his new digs. And the Purple Dragons are in the mood for some head-bashing...

Unfortunately, there's little out there in terms of more information on this episode. The one thing we do know, the boys are gonna be split up. And each duo's gonna need to work hard to get out of their fix. As always, Leo and Raph are teamed up to be the Top Dogs in terms of fighting. They are the best fighters. They don't use sticks. One of them's not trying to eat paint chips or pizza from the trash. Blah blah blah...

Don and Mike have to prove that they can be just as useful in a fight as the other two. Mind you, they can be extremely resourceful when in a tough situation. Mike usually thinks outside the box, while Donnie's adding lasers or strange devices to the same box. Yet they always seem to eke out a win, whether if it's disarming alien bombs or using molten cheeze pizza projectiles...

There's going to be enough facepalms in this episode to plant a grove in the middle of Central Park...

So,

WILL THE TURTLES MANAGE TO STOP BAXTER'S MOUSERS AND THE PD's?!
WILL DONATELLO MAKE IT THROUGH THE EPISODE WITHOUT THROTTLING MIKE?!
HECK, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE NICK-DESIGNED MOUSERS?!


You know the drill...

Stay Tuned!!!

I can't believe it took all the way till episode 11 to introduce the Mousers given their early appearances in every other series:

- Original cartoon: Episode 3
- 4kids cartoon: Episodes 1, 2 and 3
- Mirage; Issue 2
- IDW: Issue 6
- Archie: Issue 2

Well, someone's gotta break the mold. Keep in mind they introduced Stockman sort of early.

I'm sure you know there were lots of other Mike/Don eps outside that terrible Garbageman episode from Season 2.

Kindly refresh their other episodes for me?

I hope my two favorite turtles show their stuff, like I know they can!

Also, Mousers are some of my favorites. I've been waiting since episode 1 for this

But they didn't run that episode by themselves (Leo and Raph are also there helping Nobody).

Seriously, this is like saying "Monkey Brains" is a Don/Mikey episode because they sparred in the first five minutes.

I really love the design on those Mousers. Classic look, but the red lighting in the mouth is very effective!

Also...

"Seems a little forced."
Heh. Well said, Leo.

The mousers are awesome so far, and look much better now that they're in CGI. I have a feeling that Fishface is going to get his robotic legs in this episode.

Its odd that Fishface does not keep his legs as a mutant considering every other aquatic mutant has had legs.I thought it amusing when Shredder said Fishface was useless without legs.

Phil Lamarr's voice for Baxter reminds me of Bumper Robinson's Carter voice.

Interesting plot point with the mousers!

Baxter Stockman is in Shredder's employ afterall! Though he is human for now!Cyborg?Fly?Something else?

How is it that Stockman is competent with no tPhone? Y'all remember that sad, sad suit he had when he showed up.

Good episode. I thought Baxter's Eye was going to get destroyed at the end when Shredder unleashed his blade. It really taught us that the underdogs will need help, with the "B-team" eventually getting kidnapped only to get rescued by Leo and Raph. That said I wish I'd see Fishface get into action soon as he remains a gag to Shredder and even Dogpound. MOUSERS even got an acronym; what was it again? (U is underground, S is either system or sensor). But I'd say the Turtles have been watching too much Dexter's Laboratory when they run into Baxter.

Notice that April's phone said Irma right before it got destroyed?

Overall: 8/10

So now we see how Baxter hooks up with the Shredder. Should be interesting to see how this works out with Shredder. Another fun, good episode. I can't wait to get those Tphone toys. Leatherhead next week!

Eh, It was an okay episode.

Pros: It was the debut of the mousers, we got to see more of Dogpound and Fishface, Baxter Stockman now has an alliance with Shredder and the foot clan.

Cons:Mikey and Donnie were treated like they were useless and did pretty much nothing throughout the episode, Leo and Raph acted like jerks, April was barely in it, Shredder wasn't in it that much either, Fishface didn't get his robotic legs.

All in all I feel like this episode is a two parter, but I doubt we'll get a continuation of it since the next episode revolves around Leatherhead, and the one after that is called "Rat Trap" so I don't know...also, I wish they would have just used the mousers to track down Splinter like they did with the previous cartoons. This wasn't That great of an episode, especially since we had to wait two weeks for it...overall, a give this episode a 6 out of 10.
