Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - The Pig and the Rhino

Leonardo (Seth Green) and Michelangelo (Greg Cipes), Donatello (Rob Paulsen) and April (Mae Whitman), and Raphael (Sean Astin) and Casey (Josh Peck) split up in pairs, each with the remaining doses of retro-mutagen, in hopes of finding Karai (Kelly Hu). Meanwhile the newly mutated Rocksteady (Fred Tatasciore) and Bebop (J.B. Smoove) ignore Shredder's (Kevin Michael Richardson) orders to search for Karai choosing instead to hunt down the Turtles.

The introduction of the original television show's most famous evil mutants is mixed as the pair individually prove more than a match for the Turtles one-on-one but only after Shredder makes them look rather pathetic in their first fight scene. After two of the teams are captured, "The Pig and the Rhino" climaxes in an amusement park the heroes reunited taking on the Mikey-named Rocksteady and Bebop while Leonardo desperately searches for Karai who, when the retro-mutagen fails, says farewell to the Turtles rather than endanger them any further. Next week's double-sized episode returns the attention of the show back to the Kraang's mutation of New York while this episode's final scene puts Karai back under the control of the Shredder.
