Learn about Light Rail with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


This video, which was posted by Ninja Pizza is a remarkable piece of public education. It features the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (along with original cartoon voice talents) teaching us about the upcoming Blue Line light rail that was being opened between Long Beach and Los Angeles in 1990. The ninja costumes look great, even if they are not the same costumes that they would use in the TMNT movie this year.

So, if you enjoy overt public transportation messsages, the Turtles and subtle pizza product placement, this is the video for you!
