Old Hob in yesterday's TMNT episode!


Or an Easter Egg homage to him, anyway:


Hey, at least it means the Nick guys are paying attention to the IDW comic.  Maybe we'll see some more substantial IDW-inspired stuff later on?

The cat has both eyes, but the pale fur over the right lid and the streak across its forehead looks like an eyepatch. So I have to agree with Mark that it is meant to be a reference to Old Hob.
Tigerclaw can also be considered partially inspired by Hob, since he's also a mutant (big) cat with one eye with a grudge against our heroes.

Whoops! I got an e-mail twice for the first comment (the one BuletTooth is replying to) so I thought it was duplicated and deleted it.

My bad!

There's a bunch of one-eyed cat mutants in this franchise, isn't there?

Chet said...

Well, one-eyed feline mutants anyway (Verminator-X, Scratch/Halocat, Old Hob, Tiger Claw)...

Doesn't Scratch/Halocat have have both eyes though?

Ha! I was wondering about that when I saw it, but I didn't notice the scratch over its eye when I saw it on TV. Good catch!

I've noticed this cat appear in other episodes, like The Invasion right when the EPF shows up. But never really caught the mock eye patch and stuff. Nice.
