To stop them, the Turtles must search out a Cyranium Crystal in the Fairy Tale Dimension.

(Synopsis credited to Ninja Turtles.com) J. Gordon Hungerdunger, a Texas millionaire, is holding a ""best super-hero"" contest. The winner of the contest will receive the humongous Malaprop Diamond. No one is aware of it, but Hungerdunger is using the contest as a diversion so that he can put a zombie-making chemical into the city's water supply. The malevolent millionaire figures that if he can get the citizens under his control, he can easily take over the city. Krang sees April's news report about the contest and gets an idea on how he can use the diamond to get out of Dimension X. He could use the diamond to focus a heat ray powerful enough to cut the Technodrome loose from the asteroid. Shredder decides to make super-heroes out of Bebop and Rocksteady so that they will win the diamond. The Turtles discover from April and Irma what is happening to the city.

The Turtles throw April a surprise party to celebrate her first anniversary as a reporter at Channel Six News, but April is not feeling very celebratory -- it seems that Burne Thompson has suggested that she will not be celebrating her second anniversary if she does not find a story soon. Donatello and Irma rush out to get a special pizza in an effort to lift her spirits. Meanwhile, Krang and Shredder send Rocksteady and Bebop up to the Earth's surface to locate "a new source of energy generated by the Nucleon Fission Reactor at the University". But the mutants think that Shredder is sending them "fishing" and when they finally learn their mistake, a bright ray of light, coming from out of the sky, zaps Rocksteady and he disappears.
In an attempt to hijack two separate trains carrying the ingredients need to make mutagen, Rocksteady and Bebop cause their head-on collision, resulting in the spillage of both chemicals in the city's train yard. While April reports live from the scene, the Turtles arrive to warn her of the danger -- but it's too late. Two bulls in a nearby stockyard have drunk from water contaminated by the chemical spill, causing them to mutate into one giant three-legged, multi-horned and very angry bull! The Turtles chase the giant bull throughout the train yard only to discover that Shredder wants the beast as well. But suddenly, the giant bull becomes two giant bulls and chases Shredder, Rocksteady and Bebop back into their transport module and they disappear underground. Now the two giant bulls have April trapped between them as she continues to videotape this ground-breaking story. The Turtles save her moments before the giant bulls would have smashed her between them. The resulting collision...
