So what was the deal with the Ninja Rats?

So during the space arc, the Turtles and the Fugitoid are forced into the sewers, then out of nowhere this happens:


Obviously it's just for a gag, we're not meant to think too much about it...

... But... What's up with this? Are they also mutants in hiding or do they have a completely different backstory? What are the odds of this happening? Is it a coincidence or does the laws of the universe demand something like this must exist? How many similar beings exists across the universe?

This is all that was shown on the show itself. However if you ever play the video game TMNT 2: Battle Nexus (GameCube/PlayStation 2/X Box versions), several segments show more details about who the rats are and what they do.

It's clearly a "cosmological inevitability."

If they are mutants, there must have been at least some Utrom activity on D' Hoonnib, some other accident.

Lol, I doubt the writers put any more thought into this aside from it being a joke about reversing the roles of the TMNT with rat ninjas.

Obviously, they're just counterparts, except it's four rats and a turtle that mutated. The rat that said "Cowabunga" is also clearly Mikey's alternate counterpart for that universe.
