I saw the turtleoid two-parter a week ago and I was actually kinda suprised that dirtbag and groundchuck acted intelligent, they were mutated directly from animals and was ten times smarter than bebop & rocksteady from the beginning, despite the fact that the two moron-henchmen shredder has was mutated from human form...
Maybe the human that made Groundchuck and Dirtbag humanoid was smart. The humans that Shredder's henchmen were mutated from were not so intelligent in the first place.

I've only seen Groundchuck and Dirtbag as action figures but they were very cool figures. They were two of the few really bulky figures that made them look like they could punch out the turtles.

Yeah, but one would think that most of the intelligence came from the main part that was mutated and not by just touching it. On the other hand, the old toon never made any sense so why bother really?

I have a question about the episode "Planet of the Turtleoids". I remeber it only being shown twice ever. It was on one evening as an hour long special. Then about maybe a year later, It was played on syndication and i caught the tail end of it. My question is...
I see it is referred to as part 1 and 2 here, but I never saw it broken up...was it shown other times as seperate episodes?

actully if I remember correctly they wernt touched by any humans they were animals that were mutated into humanlike creatures..but perhaps shredder touched them.....but bebop and rocksteady were humans mutated with animals so perhaps that has something to do with why they are so stupid....because they were stupid to begin with..

you have to remember that in the first 5 eps bebop and rocksteady were alot more viscious and dangerous. They were common street thugs and were well.. as dumb as common street thugs. Later when the series became alot more childish, they just plain became ... well... extremely stupid and brainless...


groundchuck and dirtbag were the new guys in town so of course that had to give the tmnt a good fight.

Oh... thanks... I was going crazy for a minute there...

I remember I've seen him in action figure form before I played the game (not in the cartoon) so I wondered why he was there...

Dirtbag and Groundchuck was cool, I wish they were in more episodes.

As for Chrome Dome he was awesome.

And Krang did have his own henchman General Tragg.

It's been so long but I sworn Groundchuck and Dirtbag had a return episode but I forgot how it resolved or if they were just sent right back to the turtle planet.

I wouldn't exactly call being used to fill out the boss roster of a beat 'em-up "relevance", especially not if it's a game where you fight the same four characters as bosses at least twice.

They did, Groundchuck and Dirtbag appeared a second time in "Return to the Planet of the Turtleoids."

Chrome Dome was also in Season 2 of the Nick cartoon (although they just re-used Chris Bradford's model in armor for it), and Groundchuck/Dirtbag also just appeared in IDW's comics as mindless frankenstein mutants by Dr. Barlow who is making Venus.

What happened to them in their return episode?

In both cases it just feels like they are there to be there, not actually have a substantial impact on the plot. It's the "Ooh, I 'member!" effect.

Speak of the devil:



Groundchuck and Dirtbag are going to be in at least one of the new comics too.

Is it just me or are they getting a kind of revival lately? I'm glad to see them back because they never actually appeared in the Nick 2012 cartoon.

You want my opinion? It's probably because they look weird enough and they've already used Mutagen Man, Mondo Gecko, Pizzaface, Muckman, Scumbug, Wyrm, Antrax, Chrome Dome, Wingnut and most of the other shallow characters cooked up under Playmates for other projects. Dirtbag and Groundchuck were kind of the only nostalgia action figures left.
