"Green Legs and Gams," Cudley takes the turtles to
Earth of a different dimension.
and Donatello's explanation of how they've been transported to
another universe is similar to Doc Brown's explanation of the

scepter in order to rescue their friend April and a small village
from Lord Norinaga.
"We know the past and present are interchangeable."
RAPH: "We do?"
LEO: "Sure, Michael J. Fox said so. Remember?"
SPLINTER: "I believe that was said by the professor with
the white hair ... it was on cable!"
Although this conversation didn't appear in the motion picture
itself, it did appear in the book. Of coarse it may or may not
have been in the original screenplay.
#42-#44 - March - May, 1993
Future Shark Trilogy" introduced an invention known as a
Time-Slip Generator that exists in the same future the TMNT saw
in issue 7. The Time-Slip was an invention by the Donatello of
that timeline who invented it solely for the purpose of visiting
the past. However, during an attack by a mutated shark known
as Armaggon and the Shredder, the Generator was stolen, and Future
Leo and Mike were kidnapped. Future Don whipped up a second Time-Slip
in order to bring the Teenaged Turtles from the '90s into the
future to help defeat the two, as well as the Rat King and a
cyborg cat known as Verminator X.
X may very well have been a spoof of Griff from Back to the Future
2. Both have bionic implants in their bodies that make them much
stronger than they were before.

of the altered timeline, Future Don said "The repercussions
could be enormous." similar to Doc's "The consequences
could be disastrous!"
In certain scenes, the characters themselves used the term "went
back to the future" the same way Marty and Doc would say
they were returning to their own time.
Don's remote control for the time machine was shattered, leaving
him and Raph stuck 100 years in the past (Just like the scene
when the DeLoreon was destoryed in BTTF 3, leaving Doc stuck
100 years in the past)
