Donatello and Algernon

The Turtle Nebula is a nebula shaped like a turtle in form.[1] Algernon in the episode Beyond the Donatello Nebula of the 1987 TV series comes from a planet or natural satellite in that region, though - despite Donatello's hopes - he more resembles a lizard than a turtle. This may indicate his home is dominated by reptiloid lifeforms in general.

The nebula is officially called NGC 6210.[2]
