Recap / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2012 S 3 E 2 A Foot Too Big

Go To

Donnie and Mikey come across Big Foot and protect him from a hunter called "The Finger".

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Big Foot is this to Donnie, which teaches him a valuable lesson on what his advances could be interpreted as by April. The ending of the episode suggests otherwise.
  • Big Damn Kiss: April gives Donnie a rather affectionate kiss.
  • Breather Episode: A silly break from the darker last few episodes of Season 2 and Leonardo's wavering confidence in his skills just an episode ago.

  • Easily Forgiven: Big Foot holds no grudge against The Finger for hunting her for years.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: The Finger regrets hunting Big Foot when he finds out she's female.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: The Finger shoots exploding arrows, and then Donnie shoots one at his bag containing the rest of his arrows setting off a chain reaction.
  • Interspecies Romance: Big Foot and The Finger fall in love with each other at the end.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: When Donnie is complaining about Big Foot always bugging him and following him everywhere, Raph points out that Donnie does the same thing to April.
  • Mythology Gag: Previous versions of this story had a hunter named Abigail Finn after Big Foot. This version reimagines the character as the "Fin"ger. Both versions reveal that the big foot is a female.
  • Post-Kiss Catatonia: Donnie's too shocked to move or speak for a few seconds after April kisses him.

  • Red Right Hand: The Finger so called because he has an extra finger on his right hand.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Big Foot's initially assumed to be male by everyone until she displays affections for Donnie.
  • Shout-Out: The background at the end of The Powerpuff Girls shows up at one point.
    • The Finger speaks in the third person, is voiced by a wrestler, and despite being a competent fighter is pretty insane. Sounds a whole lot like THE BOULDERRR from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
  • Stout Strength: The Finger shows a surprising level of strength for someone of his build, and actually holds his own against Mikey and Donnie.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Mikey berates Leo and Casey when their jokes about Big Foot sends her running off in tears.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: The Finger doesn't like hurting ladies. When he finds out that Big Foot's a girl, he stops the conflict.
  • Your Mom: When captured, Mikey and Donnie use this to provoke the Finger into attacking them, then use his weapons to break free.
