List of episodes

The tenth season of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1987 TV series was also its final season. Shredder and Krang return for a three part episode, and the Technodrome is still in Dimension X.

When the season aired, the interest for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had almost faded out. At the time, CBS was phasing out its Saturday-morning cartoon block[1] and the 10th season is essentially a miniseries.[2]


  • All eight tenth-season episodes were directed by Tony Love and written by Jeffrey Scott.
