Look! It's Turbo Man and Booster!

Kill them both!

Turbo disk, anyone?

Stop him!

Go, go, Demon Team!

Help, Turbo Man!

I'm coming, Billy!

Ta-ta, Turbo Man.

Five seconds to ignition.

It's Turbo Time!

You haven't seen

the last of me, Turbo Man!

I'll have my revenge!

Here you go, Mr. President.

Thank you, Turbo Man.

You can always count on me.

Go upstairs and change, hon.

It's almost time to leave.

But Dad's not home yet.

He'll probably miss me get my belt.

He misses everything.

He won't miss this.

He's probably just working hard.

Hello, Mr. Jacobs.

I'm going to make it.

200 by next Friday?

No problem. But only for you, because

you're our number one customer.

Andrea, hi.

If you think the fabric's too dark,

we'll just re-cover it...

...at no extra charge.

What do you expect?

You're my number one customer.

And don't you forget,

you're my number one customer.

You're my number one customer.

Honey, how are you?

Howard, where are you?

I know, Jamie's karate class.

Don't worry, I'll meet you there.

I promise. Don't forget...

...you're my number one customer.

Look, I didn't mean that.

I'm gonna make it.

I'm gonna make it.

He's not gonna make it.

What the...?

The kids look great.

Yeah, they do.

Ted, I baked you some cookies.

You know, to thank you for

fixing my screen door.

Thanks, Judy.

Ted, I was wondering if you'd mind

taking a look at my porch light?

Just doesn't

seem to be working and...

...you being such a handyman...

Sure, I've got just the tool

for the job.

I'm gonna make it.

Damn it!



License and registration, please.

I'm in kind of a hurry.

I'm late for my son's

karate class.

Oh, I do apologize if I've caused you

some sort of delay.

How thoughtless of me.

The last thing I want

on my conscience right now...

...is for a private citizen

to somehow be disappointed...

...in the performance of my duty.

Look, I was not criticizing you,


Step out of the car.

That's my boy!


Are we finished now?

Recite the alphabet.

A, B, C...


Way to go, Jamie!

I didn't make it.

Hey, neighbor!


What are you doing on my roof?

What's Ted doing on your roof?

I had some extra lights.

Since you didn't

put up any yourself...

...I thought, why not spread Christmas

cheer around the neighborhood?

Gee, Ted.

How thoughtful.

Sorry you missed the karate class.

Don't worry, I got it all

on video for you.

What would I do without you?

Did you tell Ted he could put

lights up on our house?

Do you know what time it is?

I know. On top of the traffic

I got a speeding ticket.

Don't explain it to me.

It wasn't my karate class you missed.

Hi, buddy.

It's Turbo Time.

Now's your chance to save the

universe with Turbo Man.

Battle evil with America's favorite

superhero and his sidekick, Booster.


...about that karate class tonight...

I was trying to...

Jamie, stop!


It was not my fault.

Don't walk away from your father.

Can I come in?

So, champ...

...are those hands registered weapons?

Is this it?

Wow! This is really cool.

How do you do this?

Like this?

No, I know.

Like this.

What do you think?

How about this?

I did something

really stupid today.

I don't care.

Come on, Jamie.

I hope that's not true, because

I really wanted to be there.

Believe me.

You always say that,

and you never come anyways.

Purple was important to me, Dad.

That's one away from green

and three away from black.

I saw you get yellow.

But you missed blue.

You're right.

I really blew it.

I'm really, really sorry.

Can I make it up to you?
