What Were People Afraid of During the ’90s? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! [VIDEO]
The ’90s were a time when there wasn’t a whole lot in the world to worry about. If you need any proof, watch this old video of a Canadian religious organization which had nothing better to do than bemoan the rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who they argued where turning children into little tools of Satan.
“Ninjas were assassins, they were mercenaries, they were not good people,” one of the crusaders passionately explained, failing to realize that, traditionally, ninjas also weren’t pizza-scarfing turtles.
In the clip below, you will also see these pop culture critics of yore go after Bart Simpson and a Michael Jackson chocolate bar. (Actually, that one does sound like something we maybe should’ve been keeping kids away from.) Check out the hilariously dated video below.
