Prince of the Kookamunga/Voyage to the Bottom of the Lake

Wikipedia has an article about:
  1. This comment made by Jiggers seems to imply that the turtles were actually able to respond to an ad, even though they do not appear to be anthropomorphized (save for the hats), as they do not speak. This is not the only incident in which a non-anthropomorphized animal in the show has displayed or been implied to have higher intelligence in regards to civilization than would be expected.
