Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Pizza Face

In one of the most bizarre episodes of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon yet, Michelangelo (Greg Cipes) becomes suspicious of Antonio's Pizza-Rama whose latest pizza pies are living creatures who turn those who eat them - like April (Mae Whitman), Leonardo (Jason Biggs), Donatello (Rob Paulsen), Raphael (Sean Astin), and Splinter (Hoon Lee) - into zombies.

Torturing an uneaten pizza for information after his friends and family have all become pizza zombies, Mikey learns the owner Antonio was exposed to Mutagen which transformed him into Pizza Face (John DiMaggio) who plans to make human-sized calzones out of his zombie followers starting with April. As Mikey remarks, a pizza who eats calzones is pretty messed up.

Mikey eventually saves the day not because of any great plan or his ninja training but thanks to his stomach which helps the Turtle eat his way to victory. With the zombies returning home with no memory of what happens the episode ends with his brothers dismissing Mikey's rantings as nothing more than a nightmare, but that pizza box on the floor (and the pie in the freezer with Ice Cream Kitty) suggests otherwise.
