The Fifth Turtle hits the big time

I just learned that the first episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I ever wrote, “The Fifth Turtle,” was voted the best of all the TMNT shows on You can see the list here. IGN failed to list the writers, though. As a public service, here they are:

“The Case of The Killer Pizzas” Doug Booth; “Get Shredder!” David Wise; “Casey Jones – Outlaw Hero” David Wise; “Corporate Raiders from Dimension X” David Wise ; “Turtle Trek” David Wise;

David Wise & Patti Howeth wrote “Shredder Splintered” & “A Thing About Mouser.” David was solo writer on “Usagi Yojimbo.” Jeff Scott wrote the final episode, “Divide and Conquer.”


And yours truly wrote “The Fifth Turtle.”

Considering the award, it seems useful to credit the creators, just so people don’t think the actors make up the dialog as they record.
