Most Violent moments in the Old Cartoon

Recently, I watched the 2nd Nick/80s crossover again and one of the main points of that special (the turtles not using their weapons) got me thinking, what exactly were the most violent moment of the Old Toon?

Usually, the fights were usually slapstick but there were always exceptions which makes me wonder what the standouts would be. I can't remember too many off the top of my head since I haven't watched through the OT in a while but a few that come to mind are 80s Leo stabbing the plant monster in season 2 and Shredder blowing up the channel six building in season 8.

That was especially gruesome, considering that we didn't know Splinter and the Channel Six crew escaped until the very end and it was the 1st episode of the Red Sky seasons so nobody knew what to expect.

Probably Seymour Guts floating in the mutagen mix with all his body parts separated before he became Mutagen Man?

Yeah that one was rather graphic. Rocksteady and Bebop evne said something like "the guy is done for", and Krang just said "who cares about that? he's gonna ruin the mutagen!"... I mean Krang was a warlord. Obviously the deaths of others didn't bother him.

And what about Baxter being turned into a fly? It was obvious Krang was trying to kill him. And for a second or two it seemed like he was gonna die. We even saw his skeleton... hell, in that same episode April almost died from poisonous flowers. That was a bit risky for an 80s cartoon episode.

There are a lot of episodes the Turtles or April are tied to machines or conveyor belts that would lead to them being sliced and diced, crushed, burned, etc....but of course they always free themselves in time. Or episodes where rockets or bombs are being set after them and they escape the last minute.

I recently remembered another moment.

In the season 4 episode "Name that Toon", Donatello and Shredder get into a fight which ultimately results in Shredder winning, but before that Donatello smacks him in the face with his bo staff.

There weren't any injuries or anything, but hearing Shredder howl in pain after what happened to him, I was like Yikes

Yeah I definitely remember that. Also, I remember immediately after that where Donatello was going in "for the kill" after Shredder was on the floor dazed briefly(before getting kicked away by him).

Lol, really Donatello was probably the most brutal of the Turtles in the original series, particularly where the Shredder was concerned. I also remember in season 7 where he was about to drop him from a great height and onto a machine. Sure, he may not exactly have been himself at the time, but it was still him though.

That’s the one violent moment that stands out for me, as I actually thought Shredder was hit in the eye by Donatello. That must have hurt a lot, especially since James Avery did a good job at portraying it.

Uh, no. It was a flat out attempt at mass murder. He BLEW UP a building FULL of people! They only escaped with Splinter's help. And even then, it was destruction of property at the LEAST, and terrorism at worst.

The Technodrome ran over a few buildings in the Season 3 finale.

Everyone inside probably managed to evacuate. Almost a rule in a children's series.

Except that it is in New York and you never see anyone coming out of them, nor out in the streets. More likely anyone inside was crushed to death-we just don't SEE them. But implied death is still pretty grim and grusome.

Just had a random thought about a moment in season 3, its not really violent but it would've seemed really gruesome out of context.

Remember the epsiode "Michelangelo's Birthday"?. In that, Shredder tricks the turtles into believing that he turned Michelangelo into a steaming hot pile of goo. Of course, we know that wasn't the case but if a kid turned on the tv after Mikey was shown escaping, they would've been devastated.

Even the threat/act of trying it would be pretty morbid. It was Batman/Bond-villain level violence for sure. "Will he escape? Find out next week- same turtle-time, same turtle-channel!"

No doubt.

It would have been a tragedy for all those souls to travel over into another dimension simultaneously.
