Distinctly different from the grim, violent, and dark MIRAGE comics from which the Turtles originated, this version of the franchise has remained the longest running, and most memorable, version of all. Four turtles fall into the sewers and are befriended by Hamato Yoshi a Japanese man sent to New York who was forced to live in the sewers. One day he sees a strange green glow which transforms the four turtles into human-like creatures. Hamato (now Master Splinter) changes into a giant rat from the green glow and teaches the turtles the skills of the ninja as they team up with Channel 6 news reporter April O'Neil to battle against Yoshi's arch enemy Shredder and Krang, an alien warlord from Dimension X.

When Donatello, Michaelangelo, and Raphael return from the video arcade, they discover that Donatello's lab is in disarray and that Leonardo is missing.

While the polar ice caps would melt, thus freeing the Technodrome, it would also cause the city to be plunged into a new ice age, paralyzing it for Krang's conquest. With the aid of his Hyper Thruster, a contraption large enough to jolt the Earth off of its axis, Krang proposes to use the Foot soldiers to transport it to planet's surface and assemble it while Shredder and Krang locate the mysterious energy source.

The other guys are confused by Raphael's sudden change of attitude, but are reluctant to look a gift horse in the mouth. Over at the Crosstown bank, the stolen Channel Six News van crashes through the front doors, and Max, a typical cartoon punk and his partner in crime, Iggy, make an early withdrawal.

But somehow, while the Turtles were just outside the room that housed these objects another one disappeared - yet no one had entered the room from outside and the surveillance cameras picked up no one from inside the room. They seemed to have literally disappeared. The Turtles agree that maybe they should take the one remaining object back to their lair, where no one knows where it is. Dr. Webb, director of the Dynamic Science Labs, reluctantly agrees, warning them that if it should fall into the thief's hands he could construct something of unspeakable horror. But while the other Turtles are out ""beating the bushes"" looking for clues, Mi
