TMNT in... Mayhem From Mutant Island!!! is an animated short anthology series by 4Kids Entertainment. The story is broken down into "Chapters". Chapter Three debuted on 4Kids' website on Friday, March 6, 2009, with Chapters One and Two airing during TMNT: Back to the Sewer and Chaotic: M'arillian Invasion, respectively, on Saturday, March 7, 2009. They were streamed on the 4Kids website a week in advance of airing them on television. The episodes comprise a single story called "Mayhem from Mutant Island."

  • The 13 Mayhem From Mutant Island Interstitials/Shorts were written by Matthew and John Drdek.
  • The dinosaurs the Turtles face are similar to the Paleo Patrol Mini-Mutant figures. The suits the Turtles don in Chapter Three are the Sub-Sewer outfits from the action figures.
  • The T-Rex that appears in Chapter Eight sports the same design as the one briefly seen in Web Wranglers.
  • When aired as a single episode, a different opening sequence was featured. While re-using the same theme music, different clips were featured. This opening was previously seen in the rerun of "Wedding Bells and Bytes" that aired with the top 10.
