Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze

Plot hole: It's never really addressed or explained how Shredder survived his death in the previous movie from being crushed in a garbage truck.

Suggested correction: It didn't really need to be addressed, and thus is not a mistake. His hand emerging from the junkyard is enough to show that he survived his apparent demise at the end of the last film.

Splinter: You have youth, and I have experience. But only those who fight now have both.

More trivia for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze

Question: Does anybody know how soon this movie takes place after the first one? The foot soldiers are regrouping at the "fallback spot" and Shredder digs out of the garbage pile which would suggest anywhere from 2-24 hours later. Yet somehow April has a brand-new fully furnished apartment and it sounds like the turtles have been there for weeks by the manner in which the neighbor complains about the noise.

Answer: Shredder could have been unconscious for days before he even began to dig his way out. Also, some apartments come furnished. The neighbor is likely one of those neighbors that always has to complain about something, and exaggerate at that. It's probably been about a week or so.

That still doesn't explain the scene with the foot clan.

Answer: Maybe they went into hiding for a while before meeting at the junkyard. It's unlikely they'd be remembering where to go after a huge battle from the previous TMNT movie. It was hectic after all.
