Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half-Shell is a science fiction biopunk action comedy animated web series based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. Despite its title, it is not a direct adaptation of Dave Green's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell, but rather an adaptation of the entire TMNT universe with a focus on young mutant turtles. The genre is planned to be action, science fiction, teen drama, urban fantasy, comedy-drama, and romance. The series would have animation similar to Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts and its sequel, Monster Mayhem, and a pop punk remix of the 1987 theme.
In an alternate universe, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are a team of genetically altered turtle teenagers that focuses on a ninja clan known as Hamato Clan. They were being used as test subjects at Oroku Saki's FootGen corporation, and Splinter himself was an ordinary rat in a same lab. The Turtles must work with a manager April O'Neil and a crime-fighting vigilante Casey Jones to save the city and to stop the Shredder.
