Four turtles...

...four brothers...

...genetically reborn

in the sewers of New York.

Named after the great

Renaissance masters...

...and trained as ninjas.

They battled many creatures and foes

before defeating their archenemy...

...the Shredder.

But now a greater evil is poised

to destroy their very brotherhood.

An evil born 3000 years ago.

It was in that time

that a warrior king named Yoatl...

...led a brotherhood that fought

side by side with one purpose:

To conquer all the kingdoms

of the world.

Nothing could stand

in their way... they left a trail

of destruction behind them.

In his quest, the warrior

learned of a constellation...

.. known as the Stars of Kikan.

Every 3000 years,

the stars would align...

...opening a portal

to a world of unknown power.

He became immortal...

...but at a price.

His brotherhood was

turned to stone.

And upon the portal's opening...

...13 monsters were released

into our world.

The warrior king was left

to eternally walk the Earth...

...unable to die

or forget his horrible mistake.

And the monsters

that were unleashed...

...continue to plague mankind

to this very day.



We appreciate the

generous donation...

...for the continued protection

of your village.

After all, the jungle

can be a very dangerous place.

- Mama!

- oh, she is dangerous.

There's monsters out there.

Watch where you're going.

There's a log on the road, seor.

Well, if you're not

too busy, remove it.

Who are you? Show yourself.

The ghost of the jungle. He punishes

those who prey upon the weak.

He's coming.

I just remembered I left the

stove on. My wife hates that.

- Coward. Get back here.

- You're on your own, jefe.

Show yourself. Do you realize

who you're dealing with?

What is this-? What?

I am not afraid of a myth.

I'm not afraid of a ghost.

What are you?

It's a miracle.

The ghost of the jungle.

There. That's where I saw him.

Thank you.

You'd better get home now.

Do you know the ghost?

He wasn't always a ghost.


Is anyone here?


It's a long way from the city

to just drop in.


You came all the way down here

to look for me?

Actually, I was already here

on business.

But then the local legend

started sounding familiar... I decided to snoop around.

- What kind of business?

- Ancient artifacts.

Some tycoon with too much time

on his hands...

.. has his heart set on a collection

of 3000-year-old statues.

Well, you always did run

with a strange crowd, April.

Yeah, well. our strange crowd

hasn't been the same without you.

Things aren't looking so good

back home.

How bad could it be?

Donnie's probably got everything

under control.

Sir? Sir. Sir.

Did you turn the computer on?

Have you plugged it in?

Yeah, that would help.

No, I'm not playing hard to get.

I'm telling you, sir,

it's not that kind of phone line.

I'm not your enemy. I'm just Donnie,

your friendly IT tech support... to help you

Yeah, I'm sorry. Ma'am.

But Donnie's a genius.

Why would he take a job like that?

At least he's keeping busy.

Well, if he's doing that,

who's keeping an eye on Mikey?

Mike's gotten into

the entertainment business.


Happy birthday from Cowabunga Carl.

Take it easy, little dudes.

I bruise easily.

Hey, black-and-blue clashes

with green, dudes. Hey, that's-

He's a big hit.

All right. Let's hear it.

What's Raph doing?

No one really knows.

He just sleeps all day.

Well, what's he do all night?

2802, 2802, burglary in progress

at 55th and Broadway.

Suspects considered

armed and dangerous.

Time to punch in.

Good work, boys. That was easier

than I thought it was gonna be.

Hey, look, guys.

I grabbed a toaster.

I love your work ethic, Tommy.

It's an inspiration to us all.

What was that?

What's going on, guys?

What in the-?

Looks like it's just

you and me, shaky.

Take it easy. I'm not

gonna hurt you...


I love when they play hard to get.

The Nightwatcher.

- He's doing our job for us again.

- Tommy.

- Keep your hands to yourself.

- Hey, who's tickling me?

Your training period

ended a year ago.

And Splinter says

you don't write anymore.

Splinter sent me down here

to become a better leader.

I can't go back a failure.

Besides, these people need me

more than my brothers do.

If Master Splinter were here...

...he would ask you,

"What is your heart telling you?"

I don't know.

I just know something's missing.

Your brothers need you, Leo.

They're lost without you.


Why skate a halfpipe

when you can skate a sewer pipe?

Sewer's up, bra.



Dude. Going down.


Here's Mikey.





This place used to be fun.

And with rocketing interest rates,

that's bad news for homeowners... the real-estate market

continues its downward spiral.

Coming up, the vigilante known

as Nightwatcher strikes again.

Now, I can't say for sure,

but he was definitely an alien.

I think it's a disgrace, taking

the law into your own hands like that.

- Leave it to the police.

- Up next...

I remember how that used to feel,

busting up crime syndicates.

Sure, they had a bunch of guns,

but they weren't like these guns.

Why do you do this to yourself,Mikey?

Those glory days are over.

Forget about them. Get on with

your life. Concentrate on your work.

Yeah, yeah. Spoken like

a true has-been.

Well, look who woke up.

I suppose you think the Nightwatcher

is some kind of hero.

Beats sitting around doing nothing

while dirtbags run free.

I would love to know what it is

that you do that's so great.

We're contributing around here.

All you do is sleep.

Yeah, I do nothing. You're right.

You got me all figured out.

I know that your attitude has been

a source of contention to this team.

You think fear is the best way

to accomplish things.

First of all, this team you

speak of doesn't exist anymore.

And second of all...



I think I made my point.

That doesn't prove anything.

Why couldn't you send him away

for training?

Donatello, this home

has become like an empty shell.

Each of your brothers

has strengths and weaknesses.

You must learn to be strong

when they are weak.

If you don't learn

to recognize this...

...then all hope is

lost for our family.

Keep it coming.

Hey, careful.

Those aren't souvenirs.

Sorry about that, ma'am.

Where are you, Casey?

Come on. Come on, pick up.

Don't do this to me again. Not now.

Casey can't come to the phone right

now because we're hardly working.

This better be good.

Casey, I am standing on the dock with

a priceless statue and no delivery truck.

- So my question is, where are you?

- April.

Hey, babe. I am so sorry.

I set the alarm clock, but...

It's broken. The clock...

It's bad enough that you're

out every night playing vigilante...

- .. but we've got a deadline to meet.

- I'm sorry.

oh, wait, babe, real quick.

You left a message saying you found Leo.
