In New York, Splinter meditates, whereupon he meets a Yeti in the mountains of Tibet. He asks Splinter for help. Splinter awakens and tells the Turtles to prepare for a long journey. But all five magically disappear suddenly as they are transported to Tibet. The Turtles arrive at the base of the mountain and climb. As they reach the cavern, they find the Yeti in the thrall of a strange alien creature.
Eventually, the misunderstanding is overcome. It seems the alien has been rescuing rare earth creatures: Loch Ness monster, Bigfoot, and a Merman. Yeti says there is no reason to collect as he is doing. Earth will be fine.
And the TMNT and Splinter are transported back to New York.
Backup story continues with April and the Warrior Dragon.
