Battletoads is one of the magazines that was stolen by Lisa Cooper at the beginning of the episode Father Figure.
Because Lisa's father was living outside of Toronto because of work, she started misbehaving—including shoplifting comics from a news stand outside the Flatiron Building. When chased by the proprietor, she ran away and hid; and, as a result, she was the only witness to a gangland killing. She was kept in police custody for her own protection, and stayed at Nick's loft.
Battletoads is a video game created by Rare Ltd. to rival the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games. In the story line, two anthropomorphic toads named after skin disorders (Rash and Zitz) have to save their friends Pimple and the Princess Angelica from the Dark Queen, ruler of Planet Ragnarok. The first game was released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1991. The backstory of Battletoads, written by Rare employee Guy Miller, was also published in a Nintendo Power comic (Vol. 24 and 25).
