One of the few characters known to have survived the intervening 100 years between the series' present day and 2105, John Bishop is a recurring character in TMNT: Fast Forward.

Bishop was re-introduced in the episode "Bishop to Knight", where the Turtles discovered to their surprise that Bishop had survived the intervening one hundred years, and that he had radically altered

his approach to Earth defense. Now legally elected the very popular President of the Pan-Galactic Alliance (described by Leonardo as an intergalactic version of the United Nations but a federation - which also insofar is true that the headquarters of the PGA is located in New York City, which Bishop helped form), he now used diplomacy to maintain inter-planetary peace. Now a public figure and - due to the neutrality status of the P.G.A. - incapable of directly taking part in missions (although in latter episodes this attitude was slightly slackened), Bishop recruited the Turtles due to their special talents to covertly stop famed mercenary Torbin Zixx from completing a sabotage mission on Earth. Although the Turtles distrusted him at first because of their not so good shared past, they gradually became convinced that people could still change.

Later on, the episode "Head of State" revealed the reasons behind Bishop's change of heart. Roughly fifty years prior to 2105, he and Baxter Stockman, both still working for the E.P.F., finally realized Bishop's ambition of a super-soldier army in the form of what Stockman named "Organic Mousers": biped one eyed dinosaur like creatures able to withstand heavy damage and controlled by sound. A lab accident seemingly killed Stockman; Bishop himself would have died if not for the actions of one of the E.P.F.'s alien test subjects, who saved his life though due to its inhumane treatment, Bishop didn't expect him to.

Surprised and touched that an alien which had been imprisoned and experimented upon by the E.P.F. still had enough mercy in it to save him, Bishop's viewpoint on aliens changed radically, and he began to work for far more peaceful solutions, and turned his efforts into befriending them instead, leading to the creation of the Pan-Galactic Alliance. It was this change of heart that saved him when he was kidnapped by the still-living Baxter Stockman, who, seething at Bishop's abandonment fifty years ago and still incapable of building himself a new body, wished to take Bishop's body as his own; but convinced by Leonardo that the world Bishop helped create was one where even he could live a normal life, he abandons his plan. Immediately afterward, as the abandoned E.P.F. base where Stockman had taken Bishop was destroyed by Stockman's organic mousers, Stockman was once again placed in mortal peril. This time, however, Bishop did not hesitate and managed to save his friend's life.

With both Bishop and Baxter safe, Bishop informs Doctor Stockman that with the advancement in human technology over the last 100 years creating a new body for Stockman is easy. He also tells him that the Department of Agriculture expressed interest in his mousers and he wanted him to meet them, which the latter accepted.

Finally, Bishop appeared in the episode "The Day of Awakening", where he informed the Turtles about Sh'Okanabo's takeover of the lunar settlement Moonbase Bishop, recruited them in his attempt to stop the alien, and provided them with the weaponry that eventually killed him.
