The 4kids TMNT Continuity Timeline

Special thanks: Chris for help with season 4 chronology & Loudo for some pre-season 1 events.

~65,000,000 B.C.
The Turtles and Renet stop Savanti Romero's plan of having the Earth dodge the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs.

~300
An evil being called The Shredder rises and terroizes Japan. Emperor Ōjin sends an elite group of warriors known as The Five Dragons to destroy it. Their greatest warrior, Oroku Saki, is secretly seduced into merging with the Tengu just before delivering the killing blow.

After a reign of terror, The Shredder is defeated by the remaining members of The Five Dragons and is imprisoned for what is meant to be eternity.

~1004
A faction of Utroms crashland on Earth and set up base in Japan. Their dangerous prisoner Ch'rell escapes.

~1300
Ch'rell takes up the identity of The Shredder, re-establishes the Foot Clan and has the Sword of Tengu forged. Since they are being hunted, The Utroms recruit honorable warriors to serve as Guardians and protect them.

Ch'rell eventually uses a magical amulet known as The Heart of Tengu to enslave The Demon Shredder's elemental heralds and uses them as his own mystic warriors.

1406
The Turtles and Renet appear in medieval times while trying to flee Lord Simultaneous, and end up battling Savanti Romero for the first time. Savanti is banished to live among the dinosaurs millions of years in the past.

~1603
The Shredder brings the Tokugawa Shogunate to power in Japan, starting the Edo period.

1815
American soldier John Bishop is abducted by aliens during The Battle of New Orleans. Although he undergoes many painful tests, his body is gifted with extremely advanced longevity.

1870
President Ulysses S. Grant establishes the Earth Protection Force. Agent Bishop is placed in charge.

1947
Agent Bishop accquires an alien space ship and a test subject in Roswell, New Mexico.

1953
Hamato Yoshi is born.

~1960
A young Yoshi is adopted by The Ancient One.

Mid 1970's
Tang Shen takes in Splinter as a pet.

Yukio Mashimi betrays Yoshi and the Utroms by murdering Tang Shen and revealing the Utrom's base. They are forced to flee to NYC after being attacked by The Foot.

Yoshi seeks the Ninja Tribunal's aide in battling Shredder. They refuse, since he is merely an imposter of the original.

Shredder most likely adopts Karai around this time.

1979
TCRI is founded in New York.

Casey Jones is born.

1980
April O'Neil is born.

1986
Hamato Yoshi wins the Battle Nexus tournament.

~1987
Casey's father is killed by Hun and the Purple Dragons.

1988
Shredder tracks down and kills Yoshi.

Splinter and the Turtles are doused in mutagen after an accident
involving a TCRI truck.

~1989
Splinter takes the Turtles to Japan to visit The Ancient One and spread Master Yoshi's ashes.

Serling accidentally appears through a time portal and is claimed by the Turtles as their new toy since he's been reduced to mere inches. He eventually returns to 2007.

1991
Splinter begins training the Turtles in the art of ninjutsu.

~1993
The Turtles meet a boy named Arnie (actually Casey Jones) and proceed to train him so he can deal with neighborhood bullies. Michelangelo inadvertently leads him to coin his battlecry: "Goongala!"

Splinter teaches Leonardo to overcome his fear of heights. Leonardo and Raphael fight a giant albino crocodile in the sewers.

2001
The Foot kidnap civilians and genetically alter them to search for the Utroms, who are suspected to be hiding underground.

Splinter wins The Battle Nexus tournament. He is later ambushed by the runner-up Drako, but is saved by Miyamoto Usagi and the Daimyo.

2003
The Turtles turn 15.

The Turtles are forced from their home by Baxter Stockman's Mouser robots and their feud with the Foot clan begins. They meet April O'Neil and Casey Jones.

The Turtles confront The Shredder for the first time. He is defeated by Splinter, but survives.

Shredder attacks the Turtles full-force, destroying April's home in the process. They flee NY with April and Casey, all believed dead by the Foot Clan.

2004
The Turtles return to New York after spending the Winter hiding in Massachusets. Leonardo decapitates The Shredder with the Sword of Tengu and Donatello disables most of the remaining equipment in the Foot Clan's tower. Master Splinter goes missing after being injured in the battle.

The Turtles inflitrate the TCRI building looking for Splinter. They are accidentally transported across the galaxy and meet the Fugitoid, who is on the run from both The Fedaration and Triceraton Republic.

The Turtles and the Fugitoid return to Earth. The Teleportal's activity alerts the Shredder to the location of the Utrom's base and he attacks almost immediately. The Utroms flee to their homeworld in the Theta Galaxy and the Shredder is left in the imploding building. He is assumed dead.

The Turtles turn 16.

With The Shredder gone, the city's gangs are at war. Karai, daughter of The Shredder and head of the Foot Clan in Japan, allies herself with the Turtles to put an end to the chaos. A truce is made between the Foot and the Turtles.

The Shredder once again emerges from his apparent death and breaks the truce, putting Karai at conflict between her honor and her duty.

Michelangelo wins the Battle Nexus tournament.

A Christmas feast is held at the lair. Michelangelo adopts Klunk.

2005
The Triceratons invade Earth in seach of the Fugitoid. The Turtles encounter Agent Bishop for the first time. The Fugitoid cripples both the Triceraton Republic and The Federation by uploading a virus into their systems. Traximus overthrows the current Triceraton regime and brings peace between them and the Federation.

The Turtles turn 17.

The Shredder launches his star-ship made from salvaged Triceraton technology, and the Turtles and Splinter nearly die trying to stop him, but they are saved at the last second by the Utroms. He is found guilty by an Utrom jury and is sentenced to be exiled for life on an icy asteroid. Karai vows vengeance.

The Turtles and Splinter recover in Northhampton after the battle. They come back to New York fully healed, but Leonardo can not forgive himself for his failure. Splinter sends him to seek the Ancient One after realizing that there is nothing more he can do for his troubled son.

2006
Karai assumes the mantle of The Shredder. She attacks and destroys the Turtle's home while Leonardo is still training in Japan.

The Turtles battle a mutant outbreak accidentally caused by Agent Bishop. Donatello is unknowingly infected and mutates further some time later.

The Turtles rescue a mutated Donatello by retreiving the Heart of Tengu for Bishop, who is tricked into destroying it, thus releasing The Shredder's Heralds (the Foot Mystics). They immediately begin their quest to resurrect their master, the original Shredder.

The Turtles are summoned to Japan to train under the Ninja Tribunal.

The Turtles turn 18.

The Turtles battle the ressurected Tengu Shredder alongside all the allies they can gather. The spirit of Hamato Yoshi destroys him for good. Karai lets go of her vendetta against the Turtles.

The Turtles are sucked into the future by Cody Jones.

2007
The Turtles turn 19 and become Chunin while trapped in the future.

After 1 year, the Turtles return from the future and spend months battling the new Cyber Shredder and recovering Splinter's lost data bits.

~2091
Cody Jones is born.

2105
The Turtles and Splinter appear in the future and meet April and Casey's great-grandson Cody Jones. They battle many new enemies, and discover that Bishop is now a world leader.

The Turtles kill Sh'oKanabo and seemingly delete Viral, ending any threat of the Day of Awakening for good.

2106
The Turtles and Cody go on several unseen adventures. They meet Space Usagi, battle a Triceraton Shredder, and possibly aide the Dark Turtles in turning against Darius Dunn. They celebrate their 19th birthday around this time.

Cody sends the Turtles back to their time. There is a malfunction caused by Viral, and Serling is accidentally sent back too. Luckily, Cody gets the time machine working again some time later.

ou misspelled "feud" up there. I'd be interested to know where you gleaned some of these dates from. I'm sure some are just estimations.

You misspelled "you"

Which dates? They all came from piece of evidence in the show.

Well, I'm sure the majority if not all of them aren't total shots in the dark. I'm just curious to know what date was evidenced by what fact. So, I'm asking for a lot. Feel free to ignore my request if it makes your head hurt.

Lol... it does make my head hurt doing them all at once, but if you'd like to shoot me one at a time I could handle it.

Wow how did you figure out the years of all that??? I don't think they have an official time from everything on 2003 and beyond... All of the seasons 1-5 could have happened within a 2 year or even 1 year span.

I'm not sure how you came up with those other dates, they could be accurate though.

Then there's two off-screen winters that take place during Fast Forward and after BttS.
Actually you'll find it's canon, not "fanon", you just need to shift the start of the year slightly.

All Hallows Thieves occurs, naturally, on 31st October, Leo goes training with the Ancient One 3 episodes later, then in Scion of Shredder it's said that Leo's been gone for 2 months. So even if everything between All Hallow's Thieves and The Ancient One happened in a few days (unlikely), it would still be a new year (2006) in Scion of Shredder.

I did a rough timeline of the episodes (just the modern day stuff, no where near as much detail as you've done here) and broke it down pretty much the same way;

2003 - Things Change to The Monster Hunter
2004 - Return to New York to The Christmas Aliens
2005 - Space Invaders to The Ancient One
2006 - Scion of Shredder to Enter the Dragons
2105 - Fast Forward
2007 - Back to the Sewer/Turtles Forever

I'd love to have Turtles Forever in 2009 for the actual 25th Anniversary, but I couldn't justify the 2 year gap when there's no real evidence on how much (if any) time has passed since BTTS.

The comic fan in me would love to have Return to New York as Christmas 2003, but it doesn't really work.

It says Christmas Aliens happens after Space Invaders. Should CA be the first of eleventh episode?

Also, wikipedia says this:
65 "The Christmas Aliens" December 25, 2004 S03E13

The Christmas Aliens was originally intended to be the third season premiere. It got moved towards the middle of the third season for it to air closer to Christmas.

Thank you. Your kind words are plenty contribution.

Thank you. Um... "Same as it never was" would spawn from the fact that Donatello is missing during the events of "Exodus". So it would be a totally different timeline from there on out (Demon Shredder would never be ressurected, the turtles would never go to 2105 since Cody wouldn't be born, etc. etc.)

What about "The Golden Puck" episode? Was that another winter season or was it part of the same year as the second season happened?

Small change, but after watching season 4, I feel like that season goes on long enough to pin point the TMNT's 18th birthday as taking place in early season 5.

Alvarez hypothesis

According to Wikipedia, scientists now say the Earth collided with the comet around 66 000 000 BC.
