If you're watching Season 4 in the right order it should be Splinter Vanishes which is an interesting episode to end the season with.

Planet of the Turtleoids was a season finale and was a damn good one. 6 I have no idea but 4 I guess if you watch Splinter Vanishes as the last episode of that season.
"Sleuth On The Loose" was the last episode in Season 6 and a darned epic one!! Professor von Volt + Doomsday Device + robots + competent henchmen + Miss Agatha = well-written/suspenseful finale!!

I would have PREFERRED Dregg be defeated, in season 9.

then we get a return of Shredder and Krang for a slightly longer season 10 to wrap things up. Have Shredder win an invasion, the Turtles become freedom fighters. they win over the human race.. and eventually destroy the technodrome in a blow up. Boom. end of story.


But, what we got wasn't bad either. It was pretty odd seeing a dimension x/technodrome episode without the main bad guys in it. but at least they where referenced in SOME way.

True. When they went to the Technodrome in Dimension X in the final episode I was hoping for Shredder and Krang to pop up and fight the Turtles. Come to think of it, the Turtles(it was only two of them, to boot) risked a lot by going inside the Technodrome on their own assuming Shredder and Krang or Bebop or Rocksteady wouldn't be there to ambush them or something. It looked abandoned but it wasn't fully destroyed. In fact, in the Turtle Trek episode, we get the idea the big mofo is wrecked for good. So how did the Turtles know it'd still be there and Krang's body had managed to avoid any damage at all? Good ol' Fred Wolf inconsistencies. FWIW, David Wise wrote Turtle Trek, while Divide and Conquer was written by Jeffrey Scott.

I wonder who picked the Technodrome from that hole on Balaraphon? It could probably be easy done with a tractor pull, but who did it?

One theory is that the plant didn't consume it fully and was strong enough to spit it back out of the pit. But I like yours too!!!

The idea of the turtles going through an empty Technodrome in the final episode is great, because it echeos all the way back to the early episodes when it was full-powered and run over entire cities!

I always thought that after Shredder and Krang escaped and Bebop and Rocksteady were eaten by the plant, it had nothing more to devour and decided to throw the technodrome out of its hole.

Shredder and Krang would've then likely tried to repair the technodrome, until they saw it was a lost cause, which caused them to abandon it.

Man, I still remember when people thought Bebop and Rocksteady were either dead or lost somewhere in Dimension X.

Here's a fanfiction writer theorizing what happened:

I always assumed they where lost. or still working with shredder and krang. yet for some reason, Mung ONLY met Shredder and Krang one time, and thus that was all he transported.

Mung had probably no interest for teleporting Bebop and Rocksteady to Earth.

It was really only Season 4 and Season 6 that didn't end on a big episode. It seemed every other season the writers considered that possibly being the shows last season (in case the show was canceled), so they gave it a good proper ending for that point.
Wasn't there like 2 companies running TMNT show at the same time, which resulted in plotholes and some inconsistencies?

Are you talking about season 4, which CBS took over right in the middle of the season?

Yeah, probably.

I remember, someone had said that at some point 2 companies had rights to broadcast new episodes of OT and each were doing it on its own schedule.

I might be mistaking, since I don't how and when exactly OT TMNT was shown on American TV, though.

All airdates

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ries)_episodes

Seasons 1-3 air in syndication. So did some early-season 4 episodes, before CBS took over airing the rest of season 4, and all of seasons 5-10.

I don't think syndication exists outside the USA (except maybe also in Australia and Canada).
