Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures #6

Given strict orders by Splinter to stick to the shadows and observe the Kraang's movements in an attempt to uncover what the alien brains might be up to, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello prove that stealth and patience aren't the group's strong suit as they quickly engage the aliens and steal their new weapon which Raphael accidentally activates in the middle of the Shellraiser.

With an alien tentacle monster taking over their battle van, the Turtles' evening gets even more action-packed as the foursome work together to stop the monster (eventually turning it on its Kraang masters). The monster is your basic monster of the week, but its destructive nature (and the fact that they accidentally unleashed it on the city) does give the Turtles a legitimate threat to deal with.

Memorable mostly for the characters interactions (such as Raphael literally poking the beast after being warned not to), and with plenty of action and Turtle hijinks, fans of the show should enjoy the foursome's latest adventure. Worth a look.
