Despite the introduction of new characters, a really mediocre episode.

I thought it was a good ep, but they really shouldn't have had 4 frogs. I think 2 or 3 would've been enough. Heck, we've seen in later episodes how easily one mutant turtle (Slash/Kerma) could be mistake for all 4 of the Ninja Turtle.

Genghis and Napoleon were the only memorable frogs anyway.

Since when did introducing new characters make the show bad?

I know it was an older cartoon, but there shoulda been more action between the turtles and the frogs. The thing is, the frogs were way too goody-goody and even when Shredder duped them, they still didn't look like they would actually injure the turtles.


I also wondered why they made 4 frogs. If the ep was the typical 'put in new guys to sell the toys' ep then why put 3 extra frogs if the intended toy was just Genghis Frog? And years later.. why did they make a Napoleon figure that looked nothing like the cartoon and with some made up 'Flyboy' which is probably what Napoleon snacked on anyways.

Read Coola Yagami's post, that'll explain a part of it. I just think that if you're gonna introduce new characters, make them interesting - like Casey Jones. The frogs were extremely boring, their resemblance to turtles very derivative and the plot of the episode was so predictably stupid, they should just have not bothered with it. It's like it was a lame attempt by Shredder to have his own "turtles". I know in this show lots of things were simple and predictable, but nevertheless, I liked seeing someone like Chrome Dome a lot more then frogs that didn't do anything.

The only frog that was somewhat cool was the one with the all different kinds of arrows...

BTW what was with their accents? Do people in Florida talk like Gomer Pyle?

This episode was alright, why were they called punk frogs though?


Last year in biology we disected frogs, and we had to give them names. I remember putting the needles in its eyebrow to make it look like a piercing, and I called it punk frog.

They needed some kind of prefix, like Ninja Turtles. I guess they used Punk Frogs cause they thought the word punk means 'bad' or is the word kids use nowadays and all that stuff.

You people are mean! I loved those damned frogs. Yes, all four of 'em!

Unfortunately, like TetsuDeinonychus points out, I only remember Genghis and Napoleon -- probably because they were the only two who got figures, both of which I have. And I remember that there was one named Rasputin, but that's about it. Somehow I suspect the fourth was named Attilla, given the theme we've got going here...

Besides, I don't think the whole Leatherhead conflict would have worked as well without the four of them, and I like Leatherhead even more than the frogs. Wonder which one he ate.

Anyone remember Battletoads?

y'know, i wasn't crazy about that episode. something about those frogs with the cheezy overdone southern accents and loud hawaiian shirts just turned me off... they kind of frightened me. i wouldn't want to meet one of those bastards in a dark alleyway on a rainy night...

I kinda didn't think much of them because I saw only one episode, or at least remember one episode...

But I remember they wore those hawain shirts, like TC said. But where they all named after famous Dictators. (sorry spellings crap.)

I don`t like the Frogs anyway!

The seem to be a bad imitation of the Turtles themselfs.
And in Germany the Frogs sound like Kermit. Not very cool......
