What episode did this old guy show up in and what was his name?

He appeared in at least 3 episodes, one of them is "The Big Zipp attack" from Season 4.

Oh, wow, I had no idea he was a recurring character. Thanks for the tip!

CyberCubed 12-03-2017 03:56 PM

All his appearances were in Season 4, I think he was in Slash's debut episode too but I don't remember for sure.

Ah, and in Big Zipp Attack, his name is "Donald J. Lofty," and he dedicates the city's tallest tower. Not exactly subtle. I wonder how many Trump-jokes exist throughout the TMNT-multiverse? :lol:

Donald J. Lofty appeared in three episodes. I believe the order is:

"The Big Zipp Attack"
"Slash, The Evil Turtle From Dimension X"
"Rebel Without A Fin"

Interesting character and he could've been a great ally especially had they kept him on throughout the Red Sky era.

Indeed, and thanks!

Well, we already know of two :P

Here's a couple of animation cels I'm trying to identify by episode (Obviously, the backgrounds are just there for looks and not reflective of the original episodes):

Donatello's art style reminds me a lot of Season 2

http://i.imgur.com/UkGQgQLl.jpg
Bebop here looks great, so perhaps one of the better quality animation studios?
EDIT: This one is from Return of the Technodrome.

DarkFell 08-07-2018 10:06 AM

The first animation cel looks like it might have been used for the Attack Of The 50 Foot Irma episode.

However, I'm not entirely sure as to what episode the second animation cel was used for..
Maybe it's from The Ninja Sword of Nowhere?

oldmanwinters 08-07-2018 10:50 AM

Thanks for the tips, DarkFell! I'll look into those episodes!

I watched a clip to confirm what was in my mind's eye and DarkFell is correct on Attack of The 50 Foot Irma. Donatello is mixing the antidote into a capsule in the image.

The one with Bebop is more generic and does not have indications of a specific episode like the equipment Donatello is using in the other image.

Thanks as well! I figured the Donatello would be the easier of the two! My first thought was "Splinter No More" but Irma's ice cream mix makes a lot of sense!

I'm making a new signature and I just need to make sure I get the scene right.

Namely, when Krang first reveals himself to humans on the television.
"This is Krang!...Hi."

EDIT:
Bah, just went with my gut.

Are you thinking of the scene in "Welcome Back, Polarisoids" when Krang appears on a city jumbotron screen?

I think that Krang might have said what Utromaniac mentioned (minus the mention of Neutrinos) in Return Of The Technodrome, then he proceeded to threaten the people of New York with a stronger Technodrome-induced earthquake if they refused to leave the city.

This may have been asked/answered already.

But did we ever see Casey Jones' face behind the mask in original cartoon?

Thanks. I only remembered him with the mask. But wasn't sure.

This video has some clips from episodes I don't know if I've seen.

What episode is the footage from 0:35 to 0:58? What about 2:17 to 2:43?

Superhero for a Day, I think.

April saved the day via the "cut the power" gag on at least three different occasions, also including "The Mean Machines" and "Invasion of the Turtle Snatchers" ("every kid's toy has batteries").

Planet of the Turtles

cammy85 10-02-2018 02:33 PM

I should've known!! The first one is from Superhero For A Day and the second is from "Planet of the Turtles", one of my all-tie favorite episodes. :) Actually, the first is pretty good too!! These are among Season 4's episodes that were added to syndication while the CBS run was in Season 5 or 6.

oldmanwinters 12-11-2019 10:37 AM

What episode was it where Splinter instructs Donatello with a lesson about the art of "Woo Wee" (not sure about the spelling) which he describes as the art of doing nothing and letting evil crumble under its own weight?
I remember it has a strange pay-off in the end of the episode.

EDIT:
Ah, apparently it happened in "Rock around the Block," and the technique is spelled "Wu Wei."

I thought the concept of Wu Wei was such a giant cop out, but seeing General Traag take on all 4 turtles and take the spotlight was definetly a treat.

At the very least, "Wu Wei" does rhyme with Splinter's other sacred Foot Clan technique... the "Cur-Lee/Kur-Li" manuever.

oldmanwinters 01-16-2020 12:49 PM

I had assumed Splinter was never shown eating pizza in the Fred Wolf cartoon series, on account of the fact that his distaste for it was a major plot point in the episode "The Old Switcheroo."

Yet, there are few seconds near the end of "The Mean Machines" where he is chowing down on the pizza with the Turtles and April:

Where there any other episodes where Splinter eats pizza?

ranger_scout 03-13-2020 12:25 PM

I can't remember which episode this was from.

oldmanwinters 03-13-2020 12:34 PM

That one is from "Mr. Ogg Goes to Town."

I actually own the storyboard for that exact shot!
http://i.imgur.com/LEn75cll.jpg

I used to hate that episode, but it's grown on me over the years.

oldmanwinters 06-01-2020 12:14 PM

Besides "Splinter No More," were Bebop and Rocksteady seen in their track suits in any other episodes?
http://i.imgur.com/RUxy7rQl.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/Sl7RHQNl.jpg

I recently picked up this animation cel of Rocksteady in his blue track suit, but I can't match the cel to a specific frame in "Splinter No More."

Cordial Bird 09-29-2020 07:25 PM

what episode is the Turtles rappelling down Elevator cables/ Jumping Down an elevator shaft used from? I'm assuming it's season 4, but I'm drawing a blank here. I'm talking about the still that they used in the Outro from Seasons 4-7? (Except for the European Vacation)

I think Bebop and Rocksteady Conquer the Universe.

EDIT:
Yep, the moment happens around the 8 minute, 51 second mark. The funny thing is that in this scene, the Turtles have been afflicted by Rocksteady's ray blaster which turns everybody into cowards, so they are retreating out of fear for their lives. And yet, that moment was considered so epic, it was chosen for the Outro backdrop!

Cordial Bird 10-01-2020 12:38 AM

Thanks for the help.


yeah, I pulled out my Season 4 DVDs to confirm and was hilariously disappointed by the awful truth. There's nothing heroic about the moment. They're not "jumping into danger", it's a shameful retreat. I feel like the kid in me has been deceived.

It's too bad because it's a strong image. One of the strongest in the entire series. I can see why they used it. It's so much stronger than the random still they picked for season 8.

cammy85 10-01-2020 10:44 AM

Well, think of it this way: if you were or even weren't under the influence of an Anxietron ray, would you try something like this?
