YOU'RE NOT ON
Some TMNT stuff really isn't for little kids.
Gizmo Sprocket, a robot with a cool attitude, is a character created by Michael Dooney for his Gizmo comic book series. His best friend and partner is Fluffy Brockleton, an anthropomorpic dog. They are accompanied by Soto, a sentient, pan-dimensional space vehicle that resembles to a trailer truck.
Involvement with TMNT
Gizmo has seen limited interaction with
TMNT characters. A two-issue mini-series was produced in 1989 called Gizmo and the Fugitoid, which was written by Dooney and Peter Laird. Fugitoid himself was a crossover element to the TMNT with from his own story in Gobbledygook. The Gizmo and the Fugitoid story takes place following Fugitoid's story arc in Eastman and Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles volume 1.
Gizmo and Fluffy also meet
Renet in the story King for a Day, published in "The Collected Gizmo". Lord Simultaneous also appeared in this issue.
Gizmo was later seen in as a cameo in the audience, along with Fluffy, of a
Stump Wrestling match during Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures.
Will Tupper's short story Credo shows Gizmo and Fluffy amongst a group of the Turtles' friends, although they had never been shown to have met the Turtles in a previous story.
Michael Dooney made a few sketches of a Gizmo action figure for the Playmates TMNT toyline, but the toy was never produced.
Dooney also created an evil twin for Gizmo, something not seen in the comics.
