Conan O'Brien is about to (temporarily) become Michelangelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles — but first he's going to have to master the nunchucks.

Fortunately, he has like three minutes to learn.

Martial Arts expert Steven Ho was in the house on "Conan" Thursday to teach the jolly red giant how to "hero pose" and handle the two sticks attached by a chain. But O'Brien won't be fighting Shredder or the Foot — he'll be fighting ham sandwiches mostly. That enemy is more his speed.

The late night host nearly accidentally killed an audience member when a bout with a pineapple turned out to be more deadly than he bargained for, splintering the wood and sending debris flying into the crowd.

Fortunately a few hugs saved TBS from a lawsuit.

Then a scarecrow steals O'Brien's cat. It's all quite strange.
