The Bigfoot episode should be on the bottom of everyones list. Every other ep at least has some redeeming moments, this ep was just awful.

About the only scene I liked in that ep was when Bigfoot opens the refigerator door and sees Ice Cream Kitty and they scream at each other for like 30 seconds straight, lol.

Some eps I thought I disliked the first time around like, "Journey to the Center of Mikey's mind" I actually liked and found funny the second time around.

Sometimes eps need to be rewatched, as sometimes you'll have a change of opinion. I'm at the end of Season 4 in my rewatch now and the show is so much better when you watch it regularly with no breaks and see how every ep flows into the next.

The show has been played a lot in my home over the past year and a half (some eps more than others) so most of it is still fresh to me.
I've seen Mikey Pizza Face twice, (if that's the title) but I can't imagine watching it a 3rd time will make me like it more

This is one of the chronic issues with the series. I have a terrible memory and the narrative is lost on me because I can't remember what I did yesterday, let alone in a 20 minute TV show from 6 months ago. I'll definitely be rewatching when I get chance.

Heh, over the last month I've practically rewatched the entire series in order, and am at the last eps of Season 4. I'm not rushing through it either, I only watch 3-4 eps a day and even just doing that I got through almost the whole series already.

Even rewatched the Half-shell heroes 1 hour special, which I consider canon because its written by Brandon Auman and all the voices/characters are the same. It's the only time the Nick Turtles meet dinosaurs in the show back in time.

I actually didn't mind the Bigfoot episode, A Foot Too Big. It's certainly not one of my favorites, but I thought Race with a Demon was WAAAY worse.

Somebody mentioned Rise of the Turtles as one of the worst episodes which I thought was bizarre. I mean everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I think I've watched that one more than any of them, but it's the 1st episode... How can you hate the 1st episode? (unless you just hated the series I guess)

IMO the worst ep of each season:

Season 1: Cockroach Terminator. Its one of the earliest "monster of the week" type episodes and it was just bland. Raph's fear of bugs was also done better in later eps.

Season 2: Pizzaface. I didn't hate this episode like others did, but yeah.

Season 3: As I said, the Bigfoot episode. I can see why others dislike the car episode too.

Season 4: The evil of Dregg. The concept of going to Dregg's home planet was good, but this episode was filled with bizarre writing decisions. Dregg having a robot head (WTF?), Raph giving up the will to fight because of Mona Lisa, Casey saying, "Everything is so metal," Don's infected face, lol. Thank god Dregg got a better sendoff in Season 5.

Season 5: I liked all the episodes in the final season, but if I had to choose I guess the second ep of the monster arc with the werewolfs, or to a lesser extent the second Usagi ep which pains me because I love Usagi.


Other than these eps I was pretty happy with the rest of the show. Of course some episodes were a lot better than others, but I didn't really dislike that many other eps.

Possibly the final arc because it was left open. None of the characters are not follow up until the end.

Most of the Mikey centered episodes. Mikey was supposed to mature according to what Greg Cipes said. Instead of that, they make him not only idiotic but disgusting( eating odd food).

I don't share the Mikey hate that a lot have... but yeah, he does eat disgusting food.... and apparently smells bad (suggested in a couple of eps)

Saying that, in the Usagi arc they suggested that the turtles smelled like sewage....I mean we know they live there but I didn't really like that they did that, No-one else ever said they smelled bad (in this series don't know about the others).

In other versions, Mikey has always eaten disgusting foods, it's not just Nick Mikey.

In the 80s toon Mikey eaten pizza's with weird toppings on top.

In the 2k3 toon Mikey drank milk that had been in the fridge for months.

I expect Mikey's eating habits will continue in the reboot.

I think some people are way too harsh on Nick Mikey and exaggerate his idioticness.

A lot of people complained about Mikey in other versions too, like 2K3 Mikey for being too Annoying, obnoxious and lazy.

Even IDW Mikey started getting complaints now.

The one which I've never seen getting complaints is Original Cartoon Michelangelo, atleast not many.

They do occasionally in the 2k3, mainly the joke is one of the Turtles saying “That water (or whatever) stinks and this comes from a guy who lives in the sewers.”

And there were some moments where Mikey would complain about Donnie’s feet smelling bad. Such as one time Donnie, Raph, and Mikey are crashing on the couch at April’s apartment and one of Donnie’s feet falls down near Mikey’s face to which Mikey responds with “What died?”

And then during fast forward they add to that gag by having the Turtles all trapped in a net and Mikey complains about Donnie’s feet being too close to his face so Donnie shifts over a bit so that his butt is next to Mikey’s face instead and casually asks “Is that better?”


With the Turtles I’m sure they do use basic hygiene. I mean Donnie at the very least would have a decontamination shower in his lab since he had been known to work with or be in relitively close contact with radioactive or bio hazardous materials.

However since they live in the sewers it doesn’t matter how much they bathe because the smell would always be there. The only time where the sewage smell would have been less of a problem was when they were forced to live at the farmhouse and when they lived in the pizza shop.

Raph seems to be the only one who sees bathing as pointless due to their living situation as there is that point where Splinter licks Raph to demonstrate how to unbalance an enemy. But then he spits and says “You need to take a bath.”
