Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures #15

Leonardo's planned competition for the rest of the team gets out-of-hand when the Turtles' leader is captured by Fishface who alters the various challenges and traps in Leo's obstacle course to lethal levels in hopes of finishing Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael once and for all. The comic's main story forces the competition into a team-building exercise (which Leo had in mind all along - although be it far more dangerous than he planned).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures #15 also offers a pair of goofy and enjoyable back-up stories. The first is presented from the perspective of Ice Cream Kitty who fancies herself a legendary hero with the freezer door is mistakenly left open allowing the slowly-melting warrior to dispense justice on the streets of New York. The second storyline involves Splinter's attempt to master Mikey's favorite video game, which offers only frustration for the Turtles' master. All three stories work well and are certainly worth a look.
