When did Krang first come to Earth?

Do anyone have any ideas when Krang in the 1987-1996 series first came to Earth? This fansite has a fanfic called "The Exile of Krang" which mentions 1987.

http://www.thetechnodrome.com/fanfics/eok/eok.shtml

But no way. If Hamato Yoshi left Japan in let's say the late-1960's or early-1970's, Shredder and Krang probably teamed up by the early-1970's, and the turtles probably mutating as new-born (seing them mutate in "Turtle Tracks" is just a flashback). So Krang must have came on Earth at least by the late-1960's or early-1970's, if not earlier.

The episode "Atlantis Awakes" says Merdude was 200 years old, which means some mutagen was on Earth by the 1790's (anyway, strange mutagen making him live that long).

But on the other hand, Krang and other of his species teleported an Impervium stone to Earth in a flashback-scene. They, or some other species in Dimension X earlier, might have don the same to the mutagen.

I always presumed he came to earth in late 1987 at around the same time as the first season aired since alot of episodes say they take place in the year they aired, for e.g. the episode "Once upon Time machine ", which was aired in 1991, notes its present time as 1991.

I don't think there would've been too much time passing between Krang being banished to earth and him meeting Shredder, less than a year before the events of the first season begin.

Also, I don't see why the flashback in Turtle Tracks doesn't prove that the turtles were grown when they mutated. One of the unique things about the 1987 series was that Splinter was more of a sensei than a father to the turtles, and it would make sense for him to be like that if the turtles were already teenagers when mutated rather than babies.

Does the Atlantis Awakes state merdude was a mutant? I haven't seen the episode in quite a while, but I don't recall anyone stating that the creatures of Atlantis were mutants. I just assumed they were fantasy creatures in the show like Hokum Hare and Mr. Ogg.

Haven't seen it for a while, just read it a Turtlepedia.

I guess that's another thing David Wise was too lazy think of, just like how the training period for the Turtles can't match up with Shredder's plans for the Technodrome and Hamato Yoshi's immediate retreat into the sewers.

If you want an answer, long enough to contact Shredder but not so long that his troops would disband. Though given that we're talking about aliens, alternate dimensions and the odd choice of picking a crime lord to build an android body instead of a scientist, who knows how long that is?

It seems Krang at least was very old compared to Earth-humans.

What I would like to find out is how long did it take Shredder to meet Krang between him arriving in the USA and their meeting. Was The Foot already causing problems in New York before Krang showed up?

Also trans-dimensional portals are a wonderful thing.

There was no Foot in New York City in the original series, just Shredder and his robots. However, in Japan Shredder led human Foot which makes sense because he hadn't met Krang then.

I got them confused, that what I meant. Let me rephrase that question:

I guess it was Shreeka who said he abandoned her eons ago. I know it can just mean a long time, but you don't call even 100 Earth-years an eon (even if he probably isn't even millions of Earth-years old).

That might have just been a figure of speech. As in "it was AGES ago" meaning simply a long time.

Then again, Krang seems to have been on Earth for quite a while. Long enough for Shredder to have helped build the Technodrome and start using Krang's tech to build his Foot-bots and using them to commit crimes in New York. Soba few years at least.

I believe it happened much earlier than Yoshi's exile to America. In my view it seems more likely that Krang was somehow involved with Oroku Saki's eventual coup d'etat of the foot clan. After years of unsuccessful attempts at overthrowing and undermining Hamato Yoshi on his own, Either or Krang (or Saki) agreed to offer their services in exchange for cementing Saki into becoming the de facto leader of the foot clan and eventually, using the clan and its resources to aid Krang in the eventual conquest of Earth.

I kind of doubt Shredder helped Krang build the Technodrome, Krang pretty much stole it by that point didn't he? Shredder was more a companion or passenger in the early days.

I don't think that's how it intended to be, since Splinter was very confused about Shredder suddenly getting so much technology compared to how it was in Japan.

However, I also think Krang came to Earth around that time or earlier. But not interacting with Shredder until later.

Man, how Krang and Shredder met has always been something I wanted to know about this series. I've been wondering about it since 1996 or so.

Shredder mentioned he gained "advanced technology" when he got to USA only, so it seems obvious to me he met Krang in USA. Now, how Shredder got to USA and ran into Krang, who knows. Also, I know Shredder was determined to kill Yoshi, but hwy not just send a few henchmen or something? Surely Shredder was too busy being the leader of the Foot Clan(now a criminal organisation) in Japan to just go looking for Yoshi in USA?Ah good ol' Fred Wolf inconsistencies.

Another thing I've always wondered was Krang's life as ruler of Dimension X. What was it like.

I've wondered that myself.

Whatever way it was, Shredder would probably have more appropriately to Krang than in the PD film .

Even if it was just "terrified fascination" than the most appropriate "sheer terror"

You could tell Shredder didn't fully trust Krang at first. He even told him so and hesitated in giving him a body. Only reason Krang granted him advanced technology was because Shredder had promised him a body in exchange. Funny thing is, Shredder was WAY more willing to betray Krang than the other way around.

Also, I wonder why Krang stopped calling Shredder"Saki" after the first season. I loved that ****

Yeah, that's a pretty good observation. Probably because someone on the writing staff forgot how Japanese naming conventions work

Forgot? Did they even know? I think people who worked on this show knew as much about Japan as Eastman and Laird did.

True. As far as I could tell, E&L at least knew the family name came first.

Though, if Krang was addressing Shredder on a "personal name" basis in the first season, someone had to know and then the ball got dropped.
