Pretendicon is a robot built by Shredder and Krang. It appears in the episode Plan Six From Outer Space of the 1987 TMNT cartoon. In it, Shredder had Bebop and Rocksteady activate it and use it's clocking abilities to disguise itself as Splinter, with the intention of using it to lure the Turtles into the Channel 6 building, which they planned to launch into Dimension X. But getting hit by a falling billboard caused it to malfunction, causing it to release animals at a local zoo instead, with the intention of having them rampage across the city. The Turtles followed it, and once they found out it was a fake (as the real Splinter called at that moment to tell the Turtles that April was in trouble), they destroyed it by having a catering truck crash into it.
