What exactly

is the nationality of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? I mean they were adopted by a rat, and the rat was Japanese. But they were raised in the New York sewers, so would that make them Japanese American?

I think I just made myself sad.

Ha! You totally sound like me, with the overthinking.

I think the turtles might be White®. They have no recognizable non-Californian accents, like Pizza, and spend all their surface time with a white girl. Surely, network TV wouldn't let that happen if they weren't White® under all that green.

But the theory of them being Japanese American is nifty too. Do you think they have Xanga pages?

And they have the names of 500 year old Italian artists.
