Welcome back to another edition of daily TMNT. Still waiting on that hot storyline to pickup some steam. Still waiting to see what happened to Baxter. The world may never know. So why waste time? On with the cartoon!
S.3, E.5: “Sky Turtles”. Original Air Date: 10/25/1989
Shredder’s new weapon of the day is a gravity-control device. But of course. So that’s how him and Krang are planning to take over the city. They set the device on almost high power and people all over the city begin floating around like astronauts. This is absurd.
Shredder sees on his surveillance screen that it’s working great and – despite Krang’s objections – pushes it to full power. The device overloads and everybody is dropped. The Turtles and Splinter are convinced Shredder is behind it. Shredder begins to make some fixes to the machine and adds alterations so he can do some REAL damage!
The machine is altered to be hyper-gravity and pulls everything tight to the ground including people, places and things. Shredder sends Bebop, Rocksteady and some Foot Soldiers to the surface equipped with anti-gravity boots to take over the place. Yep.
Rocksteady comes upon the Turtles in their turned-over van, but when he steps into it, the Turtles act quickly, trip him up and steal his boots. They’re able to throw them on to Michelangelo’s feet and send him out to beat up the Foot Soldiers and take their boots as well.They decide they need to get above the hyper gravity force and go to get the Blimp. Because it’s not already off the ground or anything. I’m dying.
Shredder gets the SOS call from Bebop and Rocksteady that they Turtles took their boots so he heads to the surface to take care of them himself. He sees the Turtle Blimp and reverses the gravitational pull to have all sorts of shit start flying into the air to make flying difficult. This shit is bananas. Everything from cars to buildings are being sucked into the air. I can’t wait to see what the city looks like in the next episode.
I don’t even know what happened here. The Turtles take the satellite dish off the Channel 6 building and do something to save the day. Until Krang jacks up the power even more until the gravity device fucking explodes and everything crashes back to the Earth. We see only Bebop and Rocksteady fall from the sky, but I’d imagine thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people are now dead because of this. I fully expect the next episode to be a memorial to the tragic destruction and senseless murdering of basically all inhabitants of New York.
Just fucking kill me. Kill me like one of the people who died in this show. This was fucking hot garbage.
That’s it. I hate myself for sitting through this episode. I’m gonna go watch hockey.
