Unfortunately that's all I saw other than a glimpse of the Turtles confirming it's this show and that was back on 1999 so definitely not 2003

Irma's diet was a running gag in "Attack of the 50-foot Irma."

blindturtle02 01-14-2014 09:51 AM

I remember this moment from a season 4 episode after one of the Turtles said something off the wall and Raph replied with,"Could we pretend we've never met?" The way Rob Paulson delivered that line always made me laugh as a kid. I'm thinking it was Slash the Evil Turtle from Dimension X but not sure. Guess I'll have to pop in some discs and go hunting lol.

Burne Thompson. I think he cracks me up even more as an adult.

Shiro Kame 02-12-2014 10:00 AM

I really disliked Burne*not in a hater sense btw since every show has to have someone that riles you badly*. He was always blaming the turtles for everything bad that ever happened in NY. Two of the worst things he did was blame the turtles for Channel 6 News getting blown up (when really it was Shredder and his hench mutants' fault; and there was barely enough time for Splinter to get everyone out), and when the turtles saved Burne and April from Titanus, and Burne was about to change his hater opinion on mutants, but he blew his lid over them wrecking his satellite (I think it was?) when they tried to stop Titanus from mutating the entire city. He was ungrateful as ever, and never once contemplated that if it weren't for the turtles, NY would have been Shredderville! (You'd think he would have learned his lesson after the season 6 finale "Shredder Triumphant!", where Kraang and Shredder basically took over the city, including the station until the turtles came back, Irma went all Rambo, and the villains lost the technodrome and all their resources).

I think most of Burne's frustration was that the Turtles had to use resources of Channel 6 most of the time (which was typically destroyed), rather than using other tools and equipment from other companies, or at least from other competing networks. Furthermore, because of the Turtles' close friendship with April, it always made Channel 6 a target by association. Let's not forget the newly planned building that was under construction, was eventually destroyed in Shreeka's Revenge.

Imagine Burne trying to explain away all those damages and losses to his superiors...;)
Like Lotus said in the show (Beware the Lotus), and in business apparently, "...There's not much gold in goodness."

Pterobat 02-12-2014 07:52 PM

Y'know, I liked it in "Return of the Shredder" when Burne was after the Turtles in order to impress his (probably much younger) girlfriend. It was a nice way to undermine the obvious ripoff of J. Jonah Jameson.

It was much less interesting when they tried to play that all straight.

ShinMusashi44 02-13-2014 12:59 PM

Did the two channel 6 crew members have names? Not Vernon, but the other 2. One used the big camera and the other guy had some kind of box. I know they were in season 1 and 2 but not sure after that.

One of them could be Jeff. In the first episode Turtle Tracks, April said "Back to you Jeff". Phil is also possible. In Season 8 The Wrath of the Rat King, April told a guy named Phil to use Camera 2.

I don't think Jeff. Because in news when they say "back to you" they are talking about the main news anchor in the studio. So Jeff is the main guy and april is the field anchor. But Phil could be the guy with the big camera.

cammy85 02-14-2014 09:19 AM

Phil could also be one of the new guys when the temporary station opened. At the end of Wrath, Leonardo mentioned that Burne hardly had any reporters left so I imagine the same went for camerapeople and stuff like that.

Shiro Kame 02-14-2014 09:28 AM

I think they were one of those "no name" characters. I didn't get their names, and I would have noticed since I watched EVERY episode and made a list of ALL characters. I would have noticed their names.

Shredders mom
 
In the shredders mom episode they are trapped in the trash compactor and Michelangelo said "didn't we do this in another episode?" Which one was he referring to? Season 4 episode 4 or FW OT

The walls close in on them in many episodes. The earliest was probably the episode in Season 1 in the Technodrome, probably the second episode.

Warhorse 03-23-2014 09:02 PM

Ok, I have 3, what episodes were these from?

First two from OT,

Raph cuts something that is holding Michelangelo and Mikey falls down hard on his butt, and he yells to Raph "Thanks alot Raphael" And Raph, grinning, was like "No problem man!"

Then, one where they were in the van, and it looses control and almost crashed into a wall, and Mikey is cringing, waiting for the crash, and Raph was like "why the worry, you had like 3 inches to spare!"

And then, one from 2k3, Raph is walking up to the subway, and is startled by a train flashing by, close enough that Raph almost got his nose hit.

I could be wrong but I think that was The Mean Machines.

fridaynightdestination 03-25-2014 09:33 AM

What's the episode where Shredder and the Krang go into this mansion and kidnap this princess, and then the turtles rescue her or something? I remember seeing this episode as a little kid, what is it?

MikeandRaph87 03-25-2014 09:37 AM

I think you are eferring to April Foolish which April is mistaken for PRincess Mallory that Shredder kidnaps for ransom.

Boy, I remember that, but I really can't remember the episode. I think Raphael may have said it to Leonardo after he made some corny expression or something.

Yeah! Now that you mention it, I think it was Leo he was addressing. Love Raph lines like that. Another one that still cracks me up went something like,"Do you think you could deliver lines like that with a straight face?" And there's the one from Planet of The Turtleoids when Don is passionate about a place where turtles can live in harmony. "If he starts singing, I advise you to switch to another channel." Something like that anyway.

cammy85 04-08-2014 07:53 AM

That line was from "The Big Cufflink Caper" from Season 4. :)

Donatello: NOBODY can figure out what's going on!! Cufflinks are vanishing all over the city!! But why?? What could the robbers possibly want!!

Michaelangelo: I know!! They want... cufflinks!!
Raphael: Could we pretend we've never met?

Thanks! I'd watched that episode some time ago during my umteenth romp through the complete OT DVD series. Actually thinking about restarting it after I finish the last 2 seasons shortly.

When were Vernon's, Irma's, and Burne's last name's first mentioned?

Good question!

I think April referred to Burne as "Mr. Thompson" at various points in the first season or at least early into the 2nd season.

I most remember Vernon's last name being mentioned by himself whenever he went on camera. He says it a lot in the Dimension X Story, but that came late in season 4, so he must have done it quite a few times before then.

Irma... eh, I don't know.

Here's a couple posts to help out:

Question about OT
 
oringal series turtles. Slueth on the loose I believe it was. Who plays Auntie Aggie? Raph says I thought that truck did you in and she says that can't happen I'm the guest star. Was she a big time actress who played her or was it just a funny thing in general

It was just a funny comment in general about guest stars in cartoons, but her character was a parody (as was in Season 3's "Case of the Hot Kimono") of Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury) from the TV series: Murder, She Wrote.

Joan Gerber was the voice actor for Agatha Marbles (Aunt Aggie).

In Which Episode did Shredder Get Hit By Random Crowd Members?
 
Hi Guys!

I'm new here, but have been a fan of TMNT since I was a little kid in the 80s. I've been watching back through the 1987 series (I'm in season 3 right now...so much nostalgia!), and thought of this funny scene but can't remember where it's from...

Here's the scene I can't place:

April is being kidnapped by Shredder (again) but this time they're in a crowd, or at least there are some onlookers. It's outside, during the day,and he's carrying her over his shoulder. So...the thing I remember is her yelling something like "he touched my [not sure what?]", something like breast or rear end, or something...and Shredder gets this hilarious look on his face, like "ruh-roh O_O", and some people in the crowd start hitting him, coming to her defense.

This really struck me as a kid- one, because she's accusing him of sexual harassment, which was kind of shocking for me at that age, but also because...he's carrying her through a crowd of people who don't do anything until she calls out! (LOL) It was so weird...and his reaction is really funny. I kind of want to find this just to watch his reaction.

Does anybody remember this? I swear I didn't imagine this scene! O__o

turtlefanforever 04-28-2014 06:37 PM

quick question
 
Was there any big time cameos and guest stars on the original series? Not additional voices by anyone regularly on the show but like actual guest stars coming on being themselves or a random mutant/person?

I don't think they could have gotten past that considering it's a children's show, but maybe they could have disguised it through double entendres or implicit humor. It could take some time for some us to dig through and remember. :ohwell:

I don't think there were, it seems very rare (considering the cost for having a popular star), but the only one who stands out from what I remember, was on Season 4's What's Michelangelo Good For? The actress who played Dr. Jane Goodfellow, was Phylicia Rashad. She's well known for playing Clair Huxtable from the very popular 80s comedy show:The Cosby Show. I'm sure it must have been a unique and fun experience for the voice actors, especially Townsend Coleman, since they working with such a well-known star who was involved with the iconic #1 television show (The Cosby Show) at the time (1990).

MrPliggins 04-29-2014 06:41 AM

I really don't remember April ever accusing anyone of touching her in inappropriate ways, and I used to watch the episodes over and over at the time. Are you sure it was TMNT you're remembering? Sometimes our memories can play tricks on us.

Yeah. I don't think that type of incident ever happened on the show either.

Leonardette 04-29-2014 10:01 PM

Thanks oldmanwinters, MrPliggins and Refractive Reflections! :)

Gosh...I've been googling this, and coming up dry. (The obsessive compulsive in me strikes again)

It's strange to think I could've imagined it. I don't remember exactly what she might have said (although I had thought it was "he touched my breast!" but yeah...seems like it wouldn't have got past the censors), but I remember the look on his face after she says it, and at least one or two guys getting angry and starting to come after him, while she's being carried over his shoulder.

They're both so distinct- April in that yellow outfit and Shredder with his helmet lol! But maybe I super-imposed that image onto something else? I guess it's possible; this was a looong time ago now.

So weird. Thanks for the replies! I really wouldn't want anyone watching every single episode just to find this, but if anyone's memory is spontaneously jogged, I'd appreciate a follow up! :)

That's what I thought. I picked up on the subtleties in the voice, and oh what was the main villains name in that? I forget.

Also how many super hero's did the turtles play? There was Don as the Dark turtle in season 7, Raph thought he was dying so he became one.. was there more?

That's it, Don as the Dark Turtle and Raphal as the Green Avenger.

Unless you count Leonardo as a Musketurtle.

Just a figure. He never appeared in either the OT or Archie comics.
