Accompanied by the Fugitoid, the Turtles are trying to find a bar with someone to help them get off the planet. They enter Munden's Bar, but before they get anywhere, Raphael gets into a fight with one of the aliens. He's given a pill to temporarily grow in size and strength, and so does his opponent. But before the fight starts, the bartender tells them to settle it with a drinking contest instead. The first Dance Contest is announced, but at the same time one of the aliens gets out of control and the Turtles attack to help out. The fight is judged as the best coordinated moves seen, so they end up winning the contest.

Reprinted in


  • The story takes place during Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #5, presumably right before the Turtles and the Fugitoid enter the bar in that story.
  • For the reprinting in Shell Shock, there were several changes mades, because Mirage doesn't own the characters inhabitating Munden's Bar. Bartender Gordon is changed into "Rick" (apart from one speech balloon), and his apron with "Munden's Bar" on it is covered up with ink. The bar is renamed "Rick's Dive", and Gordon's reference to "Mr. Gaunt" is removed.
