Heroes In A Half Shell Chapter 3. From issue 2 of Turtles Adventures. 13 pages & 2/3 total.
Splinter is still weak after been rescued from the Shredder, as the Turtles vow revenge.
Shredder searches out new ways to battle his enemies, searching out a down on his luck inventor, Baxter Stockman, whose robot prototype for a rat catcher called Mousers, is turned down by every company he approaches. Shredder approaches Baxter offering to manufactur them on a mass scale.
Baxter asks no questions what Shredders intentions are. Once enough Mousers are made, they're sent out to hunt for Splinter, attacking him as the Turtles are off searching for the Technodrome. They arrive back in time to destroy the remaining Mousers before Splinter comes to harm.
They see Baxters name upon one of the Mousers & go to Aprils to find information upon Baxter. Leaving Splinter with April they go to Baxters apartment. Meanwhile Baxter leaves Shredders mansion base of production line for the night. Feeling Baxter knows too much he sends Footsoldiers to deal with him.
However the Turtles are awaiting at his home to take out the Footsoldiers. They take Baxters captive & get information about a master control for the Mousers.
They then realise how vulnerable April & Splinter are, just before more Mousers attack April's apartment. The Turtles come to the rescue & they flee the building just before the Mousers rampage causes it to collapse (hope no one else was living there).
The Turtles arrive where the Mousers are been built. Mikey sneaks in to get the master control but is captured. The rest of that Mousers surround the others outside. Krang, frustrated at Shredder ignoring his pleas for a new body, frees Mikey behind Shredders back. Despite been freaked out at the alien, Mikey goes to the control room & goads Shredder into shooting at him with his gun, causing the master control to be destroyed. The building collapses, as Shredder flees. Mikey narrowly survives, with the others not believing his alien story.
