Donatello (Don or Donnie) is a fictional character and one of the four main characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and all related media, he sports a purple bandana. His signature weapon is the bō staff. In all media he is depicted as the most knowledgeable of the four turtles, often speaking in technobabble with a natural aptitude for science and technology. He is the third oldest brother out of the four.
He is named after the sculptor Donatello.
Donatello (nicknamed ‘Don or Donny) is the brains of the team.
It seems when Donatello was young he used to build his own (and his brothers’) toys. No one knows the exact age he found out he was a natural technician, but when he did, he was the one who hooked up the electricity and fixed all of the junk from the sewer into their own furniture and supplies. When the other turtles would practice their ninja skills during free time, little Donny would be tinkering with some kind of mechanical device. Even from day one, Donatello has been one the world’s most lovable tech-geeks.
Donatello is typically the calm, logical Turtle. He is often in good terms with all his brother and seems to be very close toMichelangelo. His favorite music is classical & classical rock, his favorite book is A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking. Donnie is described as the “brain” of the TMNT, he is fairly studious and industrious, and a reasonable “Mr. Fix-It”. Donatello has a knack for inventing cool new gadgets and machines. He is considered the most reserved out of the four turtles. He would rather talk things out than fight and uses violence as a last resort.
Though he is often portrayed as being more focused on his studies than ninjutsu training, Donatello has shown himself to be a very capable fighter, in particular, when he is in a life-or-death situation. He can set up plans as quickly as Leonardo, if necessary, though they usually centre around one of his inventions or something else that would bar Leonardo from knowing the ins and outs of the plan in question. It is presumably for this reason that Donatello is often viewed as the level-headed second to Leonardo’s command.
In the comics Donatello is originally presented along with Leonardoas one of the two calmer turtles and while the originals have no official command structure, in the early stories he is depicted as the second in command. In the first issue he is the one that killed theShredder by knocking him and his grenade off the roof.
The second issue elaborated more on each turtles personalities and opened with Donatello soldering a circuit. Later in the issue Donatello states that he is “familiar with some computer systems” and helps April O’Neil deactivate the Mousers.
In the Donatello one shot, Donatello encounters an artist called Kirby(an homage to the comic artist Jack Kirby) whose mysterious crystal brings his drawings to life before disappearing. The two newfound friends journey to a dimension inhabited by Kirby’s creations and help the heroes defeat the invading monsters.
During the turtles’ exile to Northampton Donatello becomes obsessed with fixing up and repairing the many broken things within the farmhouse they were living in. Most notably he spent days and nights fixing the boiler to give his family hot running water and builds a windmill and a water wheel to provide electricity. He also finds an old type writer and writes his own personal credo.
In “Shades of Grey” Casey Jones encounters the turtle by a ravine as he was pondering “the fractal structure of natural patterns”. Casey accuses the turtle of using big words and acting better than everyone else. Donatello suggests they should continue the conversation when Casey is sober. Grabbing a stick, an angry Jones continually pokes the turtle until he loses his temper and sends Casey careening into the water.
In City at War the turtles return to New York to put an end to theFoot Clan’s civil war. During a battle with Shredder’s Elite Guards in the ruins of the Second Time Around Shop Donatello falls through the floor and breaks his leg. Seeing their ally Karai subdued and about to be killed, Donatello grabs one of the Foot’s machine guns and repeatedly shoots the Foot Elite. Donatello is visibly shaken by the violence and throws the gun away.
At the end of the story the turtles, April and Casey move back New York save for Donatello who chooses to stay in Northampton withMaster Splinter to heal from his injury as well as to reflect on everything that has happened.
While meditating with Splinter, Donatello receives a vision of the future where he is in the village of Chihaya inJapan. When Donatello asks what he would be doing there, his master simply replies “To bury me”.
After encountering the vigilante Nobody in civilian guise, Donatello returns with him to New York to help his brothers battle Baxter Stockman.
In the current comics Donatello finds an armored truck in the sewers which apparently had been part of a bank robbery in the sixties. Along with Raphael and Casey Jones, he undertakes the task of fixing up the vehicle.
After the death of Splinter, Donatello secretly goes to his body and asks forgiveness before clipping something off him. Shortly after, Donatello decides to accompany the Utroms on a mission to Tepui to search for two missing research teams. The group is attacked by strange wooden creatures who shrink them to miniature size. The creatures turn out to be a group of Utroms which had been stranded in the jungle during their first stay on Earth and had been living in secret thanks to their Quantum Inversion Redimensioning Device, which could alter their size. The process could not be reversed on Donatello, possibly due to his mutation, leaving him the size of an action figure.
While the Utroms work on returning him to normal, Donatello puts his new size to use infiltrating a terrorist organization’s warehouse. He’s also made a robotic body for himself made to resemble a turtle to help him move around.
Donatello was the most scientific minded turtle, and was responsible for the creation of most of the Turtles high tech equipment, including the TurtleVan, the Turtle comms, and the Turtle Blimp. He also managed to build a working inter dimensional portal though it is unknown how he found the necessary equipment to do so. He also thwarted a super knowledgeable Slash without any assistance. He wore purple and, as with his other incarnations he carried a Bo staff. He was voiced by Barry Gordon. The running gag in the show was that Donatello’s inventions usually had the habit of breaking down or blowing up at his face, although there are many times the team rely on him whenever they were faced with scientific or mechanical problems.
The 1987 series briefly hinted of Donatello’s vocal reluctance to the group’s role as crime fighters and helping humans in particular, both in the five pilot episode and a plot point in the “Red Sky” episode Cry HAVOC. He seemed to be the least interested among his brothers towards human culture, and even reflected if being a normal turtle would have given them a much easier life. Despite this, it never deterred him from appreciating human food such as pizza, and even bothered to get himself a college degree through mail. On the rare moments when Leonardo was kidnapped or incapacitated, Donatello usually takes on the role as the group leader.
In the film Turtles Forever he was the one who created the Trans-Dimensional Portal Stick in order to reach theTurtle Prime Universe. When his skeptical 2003 counterpart (whom he fondly nicknamed “Mr. Wizard”) voiced his concerns over calling a wrench a hammer, Donatello replied that science was more than just facts and details. He was voiced by Tony Salerno.
Don played keyboards and background vocals in the stage show.
Donatello seemed less intelligent in the first movie. He struck up a strong friendship with Casey Jones and the two playfully insulted each other frequently while fixing an old pickup truck. Also, in the first movie, there seemed to be more of a best friend relationship with (Casey Jones, of course), but also Michelangelo. If you watch the scene where Michelangelo and Donatello are watching the classic Tortoise and the Hare, you can tell they seem intellectually equal and the two “jokers” of the team. Oddly, though, Donatello has a comedic inability to match his brothers’ surfer slang throughout the first three movies, instead using nonsensical terms such as “bossa nova”, “a cappella”, “Chevy Nova”, and “eclectic”. According to some sceptics, Donatello bears a strange resemblance to Mike Jones, rap artist famely know for his hit song “Who is Mike Jones.”
In the second movie his knowledge and scientific originality were brought to the forefront and he was instrumental in developing the anti mutagen that revertedTokka and Rahzar to their animal forms. As further evidence of his mechanical inclination, he is also shown hacking into a computer at T.G.R.I. There is also evidence in this film that Donatello shows great emotional support for his little brother, Michelangelo, in a more obvious way; unlike Leonardo and Raphael. Mikey tried making his brothers laugh by imitating a quote from the movie, “The Karate Kid” with his own “wax on, wax off..” routine. Of course, Raphael was the one to bully Michelangelo, as Michelangelo said, “wax on…” Raphael then interrupted, teasing “mouth off!”, thus urging Donatello to confront a rather disappointed Michelangelo and trying to comfort him with a friendly pat on the shoulder, and comfortingly stating, “everybody’s a critic.” He also related to Professor Jordan Perry on a personal and professional level, as they both rack their brains to create an anti-mutagen for Shredder’s newly evolved mutant-monsters.
In the third, and final, live action film, Donatello’s knowledge comes to the forefront in explaining the principals of the time machine that sends the turtles back to ancient Japan. As he tells the other turtles, for every person that is sent backward in time, another person must be sent forward in time. Therefore, the time machine, a sceptre, must be held by the same number of people in both the past and the future for the “cosmic trade” to be made. Donatello’s insight’s allows the turtles to return to modern day New York. .
Continuing the trend of being able to relate to humans(and all three of his brothers) better than any of the otherTurtles, Donatello was put in charge of keeping the group together in Leonardo’s absence. Although he tried his best, the three were moving in separate directions with their lives. Both Michelangelo and himself got jobs dealing with the public, while Raphael spent his nights fighting crime. Donatello worked at an IT Tech Support.
With Leo’s return the group once again came together, and Donatello helped his brothers in ridding the earth ofMax Winters’ evil generals. In this movie, Donatello was voiced by Mitchell Whitfield
In the Image Comics incarnation of the TMNT, he became a cyborg after his body was partially destroyed from being shot and dropped out of a helicopter (he maintained a positive attitude nonetheless, although he was constantly at risk of losing his mind to the cyborg half). The Image Comics were later treated as non-canon by the Mirage Publications.
Donatello in Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation is voiced by Jason Gray-Stanford. In the Next Mutation Donatello uses a shorter metal version of a bo-staff. Also in the show, he is a lot more knowledgeable and is more concerned on what is controlling the lair, science or magic which leads him to constantly arguing with Venus De Milo.
Like in the Mirage comics, Donatello has a complex personality in the 2003 animation and thus is a popular character. Several episodes concentrate on him, as well as his emotional and intellectual struggles. He was voiced by Sam Riegel.
As in his other incarnations, Donatello is knowledgeable, a skilled technician and tinkerer, and very introspective, frequently becoming pensive over things he doesn’t understand. He typically has a very close, however platonic, relationship with April. He also displays closeness with Michelangelo akin to that seen in the original movie. Even more pacifistic than his other incarnations, Donatello shows a greater interest in technology than his ninjutsu training. During his first Battle Nexus Tournament, despite being a very gifted ninja, he lost in the first round of the competition. Even so, Donatello will defend his brothers at any cost, and he frequently assists the team in many ways through the technology he develops, mostly vehicles and communication devices.
In this series’ incarnation, Donatello is generally well-liked by all of his brothers, never engaging in major confrontations with them. In fact, Donatello was the one to reunite his brothers against the Shredder in the episode “Same As It Never Was.” His skin color is a light, brownish green color; this particular color is only used for him in the 2003 animation. In the fourth season, he was infected by a monster, and in the episode “Adventures in Turtle-Sitting”, he mutates into a monster himself (which happened to Raphael in the Mirage Comics).
Donatello became one of the Ninja Tribunal’s Acolytes along with his brothers. He was the first ninja shown to focus his spiritual energy through his Amulet of the Acolyte. This is perhaps due to the fact that the Acolytes training began with studying in a library, where Don enthuiastically absorbed knowledge of the secret arts. His spiritual avatar is that of a dragon.
A time window malfunction (that turned it into a time machine) caused Donny, his brothers, and Master Splinter to be “fast-forwarded” to 2105, hence the show’s name “Fast Forward”. Donatello was one of two Turtles, alongside Michelangelo, that adapted best to the new lifestyle of the future. He was extremely interested in the new technology and quickly bonded with Cody Jones. Using his ideas, Cody had made many new, high-tech turtle weapons and vehicles. In the episode “The Journal”, which features the Turtles going back to their own time, he uses his knowledge of the future to build new gadgets such as a fusion generator.
After a long time, Cody and Don were able to finish repairing the time portal and were finally able to back to their own time. Unfortunately, Viral took overSerling and sent them jumping around time until Donny managed to repair Serling enough to create another time portal to their own time. But Viral took control of Serling again and was about to blast the Turtles, but Splinter took the blast.
Donatello was devastated by the loss of his teacher and father, and for some time was obsessive with gathering up all of Splinter’s bits in order to restore him; constantly blaming himself for the incident. After some time when Don was faced with the choice of saving his brothers or gathering more of Splinter’s bits, he realized that he should be there for his brothers more often. In the episode “Web Wranglers”, Raphael has stated that Don has an IQ of 637 – a likely highly inflated stat. It should be noted that Don was the one who killed (with Splinter) the Cyber Shreder by blasting him with the same energy beam Viral shot at splinter at the beginning of the season. After that, he sees Casey and April getting married.

Bebop was a Human punk, who along with Rocksteady became Shredder’s right hand men following his mutation into a Mutant warthog.
1987 TV series
Bebop was originally an African-American human gangster that was employed by Shredder, affiliated with the likes of thugs such as fellow mutant Rocksteady. Bebop was a tall African American man with a purple mohawk. With the other members of his gang, he was sent out to stop a Channel 6 reporter named April O’Neil from doing a report about crime in the city. April ran down into the sewers while being chased by the street gang and met the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who then defeated the gang in a fight. After his army of Foot Soldiers failed to stop the Turtles, Krang suggested that Shredder mutate his own mutant soldiers so that they would have abilities parallel to the Turtles’ to fight his enemies. With a new plan, Shredder sought two “volunteers” for his experiments. Bebop and Rocksteady both volunteered to undergo the procedure (though neither was particularly aware of what it would entail) with the promise that it would allow them to exact revenge on the Turtles. Using robot drones, Shredder stole a rhino and a warthog from the zoo and brought them in the room with his new test subjects.
The result…Bebop became a mutated mix of warthog and man, donning twin turtle shells on his shoulders to mark his new job as an enforcer for the Shredder. However though the transformation did make them larger and stronger, the Shredder’s choice in test subjects were…less than stellar. Although tough, both Bebop and Rocksteady were far from the brightest of the bunch. For example, in Enter the Shredder they charged at the Turtles, who jumped, and crashed into each other. Donatello commented that their mutations didn’t “up their IQ’s any.” For most of the series they were employed for purposes however, the Turtles certainly consider them to be formidable (despite their stupidity) in combat due to their great strength and endurance, and as such, often use their intelligence to outwit them rather than fighting them in a straightforward manner.
Despite his supposed lack of intelligence Bebop is continuously employed by the Shredder and is entrusted to carry out various jobs that almost always fail miserably. In one episode of the series, Bebop was shown to have kept a pet turtle, which got mutated into the evil turtle Slash.
However, on the “Red Sky” season they seem to grasp some form of intelligence, but talked and joked around less. Bebop and Rocksteady’s last appearance is in the season 8 finale Turtle Trek. In that episode, the Turtles destroy the Technodrome’s engines, trapping it and its inhabitants in Dimension X for good. Bebop and Rocksteady are never seen again after that episode, but Krang and Shredder return during the 10th and last season. Bebop and Rocksteady are presumed to still be somewhere in Dimension X.
He was voiced by Barry Gordon most of the time.
Bebop was featured in the following TMNT Adventures series, with a similar origin and dimwittedness. Like the cartoon, he and Rocksteady were punks mutated by the Shredder to help him defeat the turtles. As the series progressed, the animal side of Bebop and Rocksteady surfaced as they dreamed and longed for the ‘old days’ when they were just animals in the wild. When the Shredder and his bunch were defeated by the TMNT in the ‘Final Conflict’ (issue #13), Bebop and Rocksteady were banished to an Eden-World, a huge paradise planet in Dimension X full of wilderness and natural wildlife, without any humans or similar to disrupt their peace, and they enjoyed it. They became less interested in evil as their intelligence increased.
In issues #23-#25, Krang, who was banished to the toxic waste dump planet Morbus for exiled criminals, befriended two other criminals, Slash and Bellybomb. The group stole a spaceship and headed to Earth but stopped at the same Eden World Bebop and Rocksteady happened to be on. Being bored of Paradise, Bebop and Rocksteady join them on the trip back to Earth. However, rather than battle the turtles, the pair left Krang and the villains to fight the turtles and wandered the streets of New York City on their own. They robbed a clothing store to get clothes similar to their original attire. They then rob a gun store for some guns. Then they went to the zoo and blasted all the cages, setting all the animals free. Just as the turtles managed to defeat Krang (who had taken over Shredder’s body), Bebop and Rocksteady arrived with guns and all the zoo animals, intending to take them back to the same Eden world. The turtles surrendered and let Bebop and Rocksteady escape in the spaceship with the animals. Leonardo asked them to take the defeated Krang and Bellybomb with them back to Morbus in Dimension X (Slash had already left the scene and was wandering the city). Bebop and Rocksteady did as asked and bid the Ninja Turtles farewell. The final panel of #25 shows the two mutants removing their clothes and going back to their simple life in the wilds of the Eden World.
Bebop maintained the same abilities he demonstrated in the cartoon, including his superhuman strength.
Bebop and Rocksteady made a reappearance in the made-for-tv movie ‘Turtles Forever’. In the flashback describing how the Turtles crossed dimensions, they said to their Turtle counterparts that they were facing off against Shredder and the Technodrome, meaning that he got the machine out of Dimension X (as well as Bebop and Rocksteady). He Rocksteady end up working for Ch’rell after he takes over the Technodrome. Their incompetence is still shown, although it ended up saving the Utrom Shredder when Rocksteady accidentally tripped over and unplugged a laser that was about to destroy him, although Bebop ended up obliterating the Utrom Shredder anyway when he replugged the same laser device all the while thinking he would be pleased that they “fixed” his machine. All this happened just as the Utrom Shredder was unleashing a plan that would wipe out Ninja Turtles of all planes of existence (even if it meant destroying himself since he was still linked to them), so ironically… Bebop saved all of Turtle existence. In the film Bebop was voiced by Braford Cameron.
Bebop: The original figure release, it was released alongside the four Turtles, April, Splinter, Rocksteady, Shredder, and a Foot Soldier. Slight differences from his animated counterpart included differently shaped sunglasses (which were also blue instead of purple) and his leg brace being the same color as his pants. Accessories included a power drill, a double-bladed knife, and a garbage can lid to use as a shield.
Head Spinnin’ Bebop: Slightly different color-wise from his previous figure, including blue shoes and a golden skull necklace. His head is completely different, as the sunglasses are an accessory rather than sculpted onto his face. Bebop’s tongue is hanging out of his wide-open mouth, and he includes an action feature which makes his head spin. Accessories include sunglasses, ball and chain, belt, and a sickle.
Giant Bebop: A jumbo-sized version of his initial figure release. Came with a drill.
Mutatin’ Bebop: Transforms from human to mutant warthog. For whatever reason, his human form was depicted as a Caucasian male with an orange mohawk (thus causing his hair to change color during mutation). While he retained his usual vest as attire, Bebop wore a very faint pastel purple sweatshirt underneath. The color of his skull necklace was also changed to green. Prototype photos of the figure showed him as wearing a red coat instead of a vest, with a white undershirt. Accessories included a camera that transformed into a drill, a Retromutagen Ooze canister, and fold-under drill and sai weapons for his shoes.
Ninja Knockin’ Bebop: Outfitted with a purple vest, pants, and mask, as well as white arm wraps, this Bebop figure most closely resembled the popular Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots toys, albeit without the boxing ring arena. An accessory plugged into his back would cause his limbs to flail in an attack-like motion, and any strong hit (likely from another “Smash ‘Em Bash ‘Em” figure) would cause his neck to extend.
Private Porknose Bebop: Decked out in a purple military officer’s uniform and with an Army helmet, this Bebop figure came with a pistol, a rifle, and two grenades.
Mighty Bebop: Not to be confused with the animated character of the same name, this figure more closely resembles Bebop’s “Mighty Hog” superhero identity. Outfitted in red spandex and a red eyemask (ala the Turtles’ masks) and with a purple cape and a black/white yin-yang-like “B” logo on his chest. Came with a shield, a wrist-mounted dart gun, and “Harey, the Beefed-Up Bunny”.
Night Ninja Bebop: Wears sandals and a blue kimono and has a blonde mohawk. Chest and shoulder armor, as well as a black balaclava appear from his back upon squeezing his legs. Accessories included tonfa, a pair of wrist chains that transformed into one large one, blades that fold under the sandals, and a can of Ooze.
Cave Beast Bebop: Wearing a blue singlet and gray boots, with a bone stuck through his nose, he also included a “Bodacious Brontosaurus” figure. Accessories included a stone sword, turtle skull staff, and a saddle-and-reins for the Brontosaurus.

Bebop appeared as a boss in many of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle video games, sometimes paired with Rocksteady as a double-boss. Even though Rocksteady was a boss in The Hyperstone Heist, Bebop was nowhere to be seen.
In the first home-release game, Bebop is a mini-boss fought in the sewer. Rocksteady guards the captive April on a ledge above, while the player battles Bebop.
The TMNT arcade game sees Bebop as the second boss, utilizing a ray gun, as well as charges and punches as attacks. In the arcade version, he returns with Rocksteady in the fourth stage.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project has Bebop as the third boss. This incarnation is slightly similar to his Head-Spinnin’ Bebop action figure, complete with a ball and chain attached to his head.
Bebop is a boss exclusive to the Super NES version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. He appears at the end of the game’s sixth level, Skull & Crossbones, with Rocksteady. Both of them are decked out in stereotypical pirate regalia, and Bebop is brandishing a whip.
Bebop appears as a boss in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Manhattan Missions.
Bebop is the second boss of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan. His attacks are much the same as in the arcade game.
In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Back from the Sewers, Bebop is again the second boss. His tactics include running, jumping, and firing a traditional gun.
Bebop can be seen in the background of War’s stage in the SNES version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters.
The Russian PC version TMNT: Mutant Melee had stock art of Bebop on the cover. Bebop is not only not in the game, but is also not even in the universe in which the game takes place.
Bebop appears in Tales of the TMNT Volume 2 Issue #58.
Bebop was the creation of David Wise, based on instructions by Fred Wolf to “put more mutants in the series”.
According to Enter the Shredder, Bebop apparently is an avid reader of comic books.
Bebop and his cohort Rocksteady were slightly more of a threat in the Archie Adventures adaptation of the TV series origin. This could be attributed to issues of violence on TV, still, although he could be considered being slightly more competent in the comics it wasn’t by much. Even so, by the time Archie Adventures started doing their own theme, it seems Bebop and Rocksteady reverted to something more similar to their cartoon counterparts.
Despite being black in the cartoon the Mutatin’ Bebop action figure shows Bebop’s human form as a white man.
In the 2003 series episode Samurai Tourist, Gen, an anthropomorphic rhinocerous, is being chased by Kojima, an assassin who happens to be a humanoid warthog, like Bebop.
In another episode, Future Shellshock, Michelangelo falls out of a truck and onto another vehicle, the driver of which looks exactly like Bebop, only with smaller, more modern sunglasses.
In TMNT, He and Rocksteady were mentioned in Shell Shock, a rap song that played in the end credits.
Bebop appeared in 4Kids’ 25th anniversary special, Turtles Forever.
Pastiches of Bebop and Rocksteady can be seen in issue #29 of Sonic Universe, in prison with the evil version of Sonic, Scourge.
