Mr. Shlavotny is a character in the 1987 animated TV series. He appears in the episode The Maltese Hamster, owning both the Maltese Hamster and the Shlavotny’s All-Night Antiques shop. He was pleased when April came in to purchase the hamster statue, offering her a low price, but was extremely hostile when Michelangelo expressed interest in purchasing another antique.
Shortly thereafter, Tony Vivaldi and his minions came in to demand the statue, and did not believe Mr. Shlavotny's declaration that he had just sold it. They wrecked the entire shop, but were distracted from Schlavotny by the arrival of Michelangelo. He was still cowering behind the counter when the Turtles arrived, and demanded to know who had taken Michelangelo.
