Plot Synopsis

A millionaire, J. Gordon Hungerdunger, is holding a "best super-hero" contest and will give the Malaprop Diamond to the winner. Krang hatches a plan to use the diamond by having Bebop and Rocksteady pose as the superheroes Rhino-Man and the Mighty Hog to win the contest.

However, the contest is just a diversion for Hungerdunger's plans to take over the city. Its up to the Turtles to stop both the Shredder and Hungerdunger before its too late.

  • The dark haired burglar from "New York's Shiniest" makes his second appearance this episode albeit with a light skin tone.
  • Raphael's remark about "finding out this was all a dream" in regard to Bebop and Rocksteady becoming super heroes is possibly a reference to the Turtles' dream in "Shredderville".
  • The shot of Rocksteady saying "We're on it, boss, Ten-four" was recycled when he said "This is getting monotonous" but the later dialogue was probably in the original footage's context.
  • The pieces of footage shown after the Turtles left Channel 6 were still images of the bank robbery scene from earlier and the gathering of the zombie people outside Hungerdunger's mansion later on.


  • When Leonardo cuts the wall rug to trap Hungerdunger's butlers, he has Donatello's colors.
  • The water flutes that the butler serves Shredder and the mutants are heard but not seen breaking when the Turtles fire upon them in the Blimp, and they and the serving tray are missing in the next shot having not been seen falling to the floor.
  • When Hungerdunger's men are firing at the Turtles in the mansion, the four try to hide behind pillars, but the lasers are still somehow coming at them from the same side of the pillars they're hiding on (making their hiding spot useless as they're still being directly shot at), even though the goons are seen in the next shot being on the opposite side of the pillars from the Turtles.


  • Cheeseburger Man: Who are you guys supposed to be, the Super Sailors?
  • Donatello: No, we're the Teenage Mutant Ninja Sailors – uh, Turtles!

  • Vernon: Have no fear! Newsman is here!
  • Michaelangelo: Newsman?
  • Raphael: Yeah, I can't wait to meet his sidekick, Weather Boy.

  • Donatello: But Vernon doesn't know anything about being a hero.
  • Raphael: So? He doesn't know anything about being a reporter, either.

  • Michaelangelo: Where'd Vernon go?
  • Donatello: I don't know, but we've got to find him before he hurts himself.
  • Raphael: Yeah. He might trip over his cape.

  • Rocksteady: Get ready for the city's newest superheroes... Rhino-Man!! And his trusty sidekick, Mighty Hog.
  • Bebop: Hey, I thought you was gonna be the trusty sidekick.
  • Michaelangelo: Bebop and Rocksteady as good guys?!
  • Raphael: This is one of those stories where we wake up at the end, and it was all a dream, right?
