[sarcasm]
Yes, yes it is. When they talk about "batteries included", they mean the 
batteries that run the turtle.

Are you trolling or just a little sleep-deprived today?

The movie is an introduction aimed at 13-16 year old school children. 
It's explicitly labelled as "an introduction using turtle graphics". What 
on earth makes you think that because the introduction uses turtle 
graphics, that's the ONLY thing that Python can do?
