Captain Filch is a modern-day pirate, using high-tech rather than 17-18th century sailing ships. He appears in the episode "Raphael Meets His Match" of the 1987 TMNT cartoon, and uses a submarine. He is defeated by Raphael and Mona Lisa.
He takes hostages in the ship and confronts the Turtles. After his defeat and the destruction of his submarine, Captain Filch is arrested by the authorities.
