For most of this season, the Technodrome is frozen at the North Pole. The transport modules from season 3 are reused, this time to drill underneath Canada and into New York City.

Episodes #125 and #126 originally ran as a 1-hour prime-time special titled "Planet Of The Turtleoids". When reran, it was split into two parts.

Season 8 (1994)

From this point onwards, the show was retooled into a more action based series. Among the changes, the tone of the show became darker, the art style changed significantly, and many of the previous notable characters were removed. These final three seasons are known as the "Red Sky episodes" amongst fans, due to the fact that the sky was constantly portrayed as red, instead of the usual blue.
