The Turtles inside Kerma's spacecraft approaching Shell-Ri-La.

Shell-Ri-La is a planet appearing in the 1987 TV series It is the home-planet of the turtleoids-species.[1]

While millions of lightyears away from Earth, and not visible with small Earth telescopes, it takes one hour to fly in Kerma's spacecraft between Earth and Shell-Ri-La, because of the spacecraft being equipped with a transwarp drive.


  • The name "Shell-Ri-La" is wordplay on "Shangri-La."
