April covers the launch of a new system developed by the city to help clean up the city's garbage problems faster than ever: An automated computer, programmed to retrieve all forms of waste material, controls several garbage pick-up trucks from it's control center, Shredder sees this computer as an ideal weapon to use against the turtles..
Breaking into the lab where the computer is situated, the villain re-programs the c.p.u to capture TURTLES rather than retrieve litter...
However, things go awry when all the trucks pick up are any non-mutant turtle they lay their eyes upon..including the last of a soon to be extinct race of turtles, just about to give birth..
Can the green machine save their "distant cousins" from this terrapin-taker? Or will Shredder get what he originally wanted after all?
