"Nightmares Recycled" is the sixth episode of the "Lost 5th Season" of the animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
This episode was never completed. The script was finished and some animation had begun when 4Kids pulled the plug because it was deemed too controversial and violent for a children's program (apparently Hun and the Garbageman were conjoined twins that were surgically separated at birth by a back-alley surgeon with the Garbageman being discarded as 'garbage').
Apparently, that was just too much for Fox to allow. Since there was no chance of it airing, it was shelved in the early stages of production. It was criticized for being too dark by Peter Laird on his blog, as he said that Garbageman was apparently going to die by falling in a vat of acid.
- April O'Neil (Veronica Taylor)
- Casey Jones (Marc Thompson)
- Donatello (Sam Regal)
- The Garbageman (Mike Pollock)
- Hun (David Zen Mansley)
- Raphael (John Campbell)
Unknown; the episode never aired.
Raphael, Donatello, Casey Jones, and April O'Neil’s evening salvage operation lands them a one-way ticket to Recycle World – the Garbageman’s deadly realm of refuse! As if fighting for their lives in a world of lethal compactors and shredders wasn’t bad enough, they’ve got to do it all with Hun – who’s not thrilled to reveal that he and Garbageman have something in common – DNA!

- Although the episode was not completed, the script was kept and small bits of it were criticized by one of TMNT's creators, Peter Laird, and released on his blog.
