* Though much more lighthearted than the 2003 version listed next, the original ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' still has its moments of this. One of the most memorable is the episode "Turtles, Turtles Everywhere." Shredder and Krang reprogram a network of robotic garbage trucks and order them to capture "the turtles." With no knowledge of the TMNT, the trucks start rounding up every turtle in the city, and eventually what is said to be the last surviving member of an endangered sea turtle species, just as she was about to lay her eggs. One of the reasons it's such a great episode is that, unique among shows in TheEighties, it's actually a GreenAesop ''done right.'' Unlike ''CaptainPlanet'' villains and much more similar to real-world polluters, Shredder and Krang aren't actually intending to damage the environment as its own end; they're just greedy and don't care if it's a side-effect. At the end of the episode, they [[spoiler: put a stop to the plan and return the sea turtle to the beach to finish laying her eggs and the resident joker ''Michelangelo'' starts sobbing as she swims off saying that she reminds him of his mother.]] Also, while they attempt to end the episode on a humorous note after that bit, it actually becomes sadder when rewatching it as an adult, when you can think about it enough to worry that even though [[spoiler: the sea turtle got to lay her eggs after all, based on April's claim that she was the last surviving member of her species, the eggs might not have been fertilized. So she could still be the last of her kind, ever.]]
