Colfer said he was inspired by an unlikely source in his pursuit of ninja mastery: the heroes in a half-shell.

"I grew up watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I always wanted to do them and bought some on eBay finally, and taught, myself how to do it, so I have some tricks," Colfer said.

"Clearly, you've studied this thoroughly," O'Brien told him.
