Greetings Turtletarians!

This is Episode 261 of our Podcast Turtle Soup, that was live streamed on Thursday 8/12/2021 at 8pm EST.

And so begins our journey’s steps toward the bitter sweet “beginning of the end” part of our trek through the entire history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as we start our review of the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Animated Series, Season 10, Episode 1 “The Return of Dregg!”

We last left our heroes still appearing on CBS and in what is referred to as the “Red Skys” of New York City. They have finally locked Krang, Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady and the rest of the Foot Clan in Dimension X, dealt with the mutant cult H.A.V.O.K. and its leader Titanus, quickly dismissed the lackluster threat of Doomquest while simultaneously disgracing the would be alien dictator Lord Dregg and sent him packing.

If that wasn’t enough, the turtles have to deal with their unstable mutations manifesting themselves at the worst times, as well as having to search for a remedy to them. Helping the turtles is their new friend Carter, who has joined the team in hopes of training under Splinter’s tutelage (or so he claims.). April O’Neil, is still around but is very much different from how we remember her from the seasons leading up to the “red skys.”

Now, in season 10, we find the Turtles and Carter on the precipice of a cure to their unstable mutations. However, while they’ve been making headway toward a remedy, Lord Dregg has made his way back to Earth. This time he has banished his second in command, The Hi-Tech to a mission out in space, and replaced him with a new character named Mung. Along with Mung comes new henchmen that look sort of like a variation of some red para demons. In this episode, all the turtles besides Leo, get their mutations seemingly cured. While Leo’s mutation evolves into more of a monstrous form. Carter feels like he’s to blame for this and attempts to walk away from the turtles and splinter and contemplates going to college lol.

There are microbots that are the creation of Mung that can replicate themselves and in mass, they can disassemble material objection and reassemble them however they are directed. There’s also a crystal that can be replicated from just a shard of it to make an exact copy of it and its properties as well.

Come hang out and join our discussions on the episode and other stuff like: Would you choose Mung over Hi-Teck, like Dregg did or nah?

  • How does the TMNT’s virtual reality tests work?
  • Did you like Mikey and Leo’s further mutations?
  • Have you warmed up to Carter or really hope he goes away to college?
  • Have you enjoyed the red skies seasons of the animated series or do you prefer blue skies?
  • Were you disappointed to see Dregg return, especially after the end of Season 9?

All this and more to be discussed on Episode 261 of Turtle Soup Podcast, live streamed every Thursday at 8pm EST!
