Note 1: Takes place before Riku, the turtles, Casey, April, Vernon, Irma, Satsuki, Xion, and Kairi go to Mermaid Lagoon and the rest of the kids and Lost Gang go to Alabasta

(After exiting Hangman’s Tree, Riku and his friends, except the mentors, who decided to stay behind, suddenly stopped when Leonardo spoke up)

Leonardo: Wait a minute, guys!

Group: What?

Yakko: Okay, we got exactly one minute for you to say something, Riku.

Riku: We forgot to teach you the basics of Neverland.

Lost Gang: (Confused at first) Basics? (Realizes) Oh yeah.

Sparx: The Neverland National Anthem.

Mowgli: I didn’t know Neverland has a national anthem.

Raphael: Why else would there be a national anthem?

Mei: How does it go?

Donatello: It’s called “I won’t grow up.” Named so because Neverland is the world of eternal youth.

Michelangelo: Yeah. And it’s a pretty catchy beat.

Chiro: So, how about it? Wanna learn?

(After thinking it over, the London kids and babysitters agreed)

London kids and babysitters: Yeah!

April: This is a good learning experience for you guys.

Irma: Especially when it’s your first time here.

Vernon: (Sarcastically) Especially when it’s like being in school.

Riku: (Through gritted teeth) Vernon!

Vernon: What? It is.

Leonardo: Never mind that. Anyway, let the teaching begin. Repeat after us.

(The group cheered. Then Riku started by singing)

(Michelangelo does a cartwheel and encouraged Satsuki and Ash to do the same. They do it perfectly and everyone cheered. And as they sang again, everyone, except the reporters, did acrobatic tricks and pattycaking each other)

Group: (Singing) Never grow up, never grow up

Never grow up, never grow up

Never grow up, never grow up, never grow up

Riku and turtles: (Singing) Not me

London kids and babysitters: (Singing) Not me

(They goof around in the forest, with Otto unexpectedly jumping leaping on and off Baxter’s head, while he was secretly spying on them. Then after Baxter secretly flew away back to Shredder and Krang's ship, the group met up with each other and resumed singing)

Punk Frogs: (Singing) We won’t grow up

Group: (Singing) We won’t grow up

Jinmay: (Singing) We will never grow a day

Group: (Singing) I will stay a boy forever

Riku: (Singing) And be banished if I don’t

Group: (Singing) And be banished if I don’t

(The group then saluted by placing their hands on their chests where their hearts are)

Group: (Singing) And Neverland will always be

The home of youth and joy and liberty

(They snap out of the salute and concluded their song)

Group: (Singing) I’ll never grow up

Never grow up

Lost Gang: (Singing) Not me

London kids and babysitters: (Singing) Not me

Reporters: (Singing) I won’t

Riku and turtles: (Singing) No sir

Group: (Singing) Not me

Yeah

(The group then broke out into laughter. Somewhere else, a shadowy female figure was walking in the forest when suddenly, Krang’s robot’s hands, as well as Shredder's right hand and hook, appeared from behind the bushes and grabbed her, quieting her. Back with the group, they calmed their laughter and Xion spoke up)

Xion: Now shall we go on our outing, guys?

Group: Yes.

(Then with that, they try to decide what to do) 

Note 2: The shadowy female figure grabbed by Shredder and Krang was eventually revealed to be Vivi. And Baxter spying on them without knowing where Riku and the turtles’ hideout is foreshadowed what he told the Skeleton King about Buttercup’s banishment, and then the Skeleton King reporting the banishment to Bebop, Rocksteady, Leatherhead, and Slash. Anyway, hope you enjoyed it!
