LMH Mixtape #40: Free Play 4

The headquarters was in free play mode again for its 40th anniversary, and this episode brought up a lot of difficult questions.  Are the Ninja Turtles superheroes?  Is Steve Rogers' transformation into Captain America a tragedy?  And seriously, did anyone pronounce the word "prix" right as a child?  Ponder the philosophical depths as you tune into the mixtape's uninterrupted jams, then travel back to the original episode to hear the boizz weigh in on the issues.
