Ninja Turtles fans, we're teaming up with Nickelodeon to give you an article that's full of greatness. First and foremost, we have a clip for this Sunday's new episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, "The Pig and the Rhino." As you can tell by the title (or the last cliffhanger), this one features the classic goons Bebop and Rocksteady. Fans of the show know they aren't just two silly henchmen anymore; now they both have their own unique personalities and strengths! The exclusive clip reveals how they'll earn their new names, which is important since right now they're just going by Anton Zeck and Ivan Steranko.

After you watch the clip, we're giving you a chance to win autographed action figures of the two mutants! They'll be signed by the mutants' voice actors, J.B. Smoove (Bebop) and Fred Tatasciore (Rocksteady), as well as executive producers Ciro Nieli and Brandon Auman. Awesome, right? Four lucky Viners will win both figures! Entering is simple, too. You just need to answer one question: Who's your favorite mutant from the TMNT franchise?You must pick just one and please make sure your answer isn't more than a few sentences long.Breaking those rules will disqualify you from the running.The contest runs from right now until March 13, at 10am (ET). Sorry, but this only applies to Viners living in the United States. We still love you though, international Viners. Anyway, ready to watch the clip? Of course you are!

Last but not least, we're also here to tell you about a tournament that'll start soon -- and it's another way for you to win some cool stuff! Beginning March 8, "TMNT Mutant Madness" will kick-off. It's a bracket-style tournament that'll have you voting in match-ups between 16 of the show's mutants. The "Ultimate Mutant Champion" will be announced March 23. After you vote, you'll also be able to enter sweepstakes for prizes and the chance to unlock exclusive content. According to the press release, you'll be able to get character bios, gifs, images and videos about the mutants. CLICK HERE to go to the tournament's page and don't forget to vote this Monday! Oh man, Ice Cream KittyandSlash are options? How could I ever choose one over the other?!

Very cool. My favorite mutant from the TMNT franchise is Raphael. He was my favorite of the group as a kid growing up, and he still is today

Cool, mine has gotta be Rocksteady. I used to go to a pizza place near where I lived and they had the arcade game (the mega man, Simpsons, and X men ones too!) And I couldn't ever beat him and it was just cool fighting him (and losing) his look and personality just really stuck with me.

Gotta be Michaelangelo. He seemed like he'd be the most fun to hang out with when I was younger.

Michelangelo is definitely my favorite. Being named after him and being the comedic relief while also beating everyone in the galactic tournament (2000 TV series)

Favorite mutant would have to be Leatherhead from the OG series. Who doesn't love a gator from the bayou?

My favorite mutant is Michelangelo - he has the greatest mix of emotion in the group. He also puts all hes got into everything he does but also has fun doing it.

My front-runners are all baddies: Leatherhead, Baxter Stockman, and Slash. Having to pick just one, I'd go with Leatherhead. #og

Nice to finally know how this incarnation of Bebop and Rocksteady get their names. Not surprising given Mikey's history on the show but a tad bit disappointing.

As for favorite mutant, the newest Napoleon Bonafrog all the way. Nobody can beat his sweet moves.

My favorite mutant from TMNT is definitely LeatherHead. I really like what they did with him in the newest show. He's calm and collected but can bust out the big hits when he needs to.

My favorite mutant has been and will always be Michelangelo. Not only is he funny and cool, he is the glue of the group. Without him the others would fall apart.

My favorite is Michelangelo, we are so much alike, he's creative imaginative and a goofball like me. But when it comes down to it he will protect his family, and that's important to me.

Michelangelo. Out of all the characters in TMNT, I feel like he's the one I'd get along with best.

Mondo Gecko. He was my second TMNT toy when I was little, and I had kept it for years. The most aesthetically interesting mutant.

Leo has been my favorite since I first watched the animated series back in 1987. I always had to get HIS toy figures first; in my drawings, Leo was always front and center; his was the largest poster on my bedroom wall; and he was the reason the katana is my favorite weapon and blue my favorite color. In some ways, I think I owe some of my stubbornness to him as well...
