While it’s not as popular as movies like “Toxic Avenger” or “Class of Nuke ‘Em High”, it still has a massive cult following, especial amongst Troma fans.

Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. Trivia
The footage of the car crashing and flipping over has become a Troma trademark and in-joke. It was used again in Tromeo and Juliet (1996) and then as another inside joke (for those who spotted it in all three films) in Terror Firmer (1999).
The film was spun-off from the character Kabuki-Boy in The Toxic Avenger Part II (1989). Lloyd Kaufman jokingly mentioned he was making a movie about the character and Japanese investors became interested.
No one was interested in showing the film in the US until around 1996, around when Tromeo and Juliet (1996) was released. This caused confusion as to which movie borrowed the car crash.
“Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D.” is available at Amazon.
As always, thanks to Troma and Lloyd Kaufman for making these awesome independent movies available to watch for free!
