Streets Of London by Lazydogs Typefoundry is another digital version.
[EDIT: Linked suggested font in first post (Nov 09, 2020 at 03:12) should read Kindersley Grand Arcade and not Streets Of London. Apologies for any confusion.]
One is Kindersley MoT Serif, designed by David Kindersley in 1952 for the British Ministry of Transport. Kindersley Grand Arcade is a free digital version.
Likely NewCompact, an early Mac Type 1 Postscript family of 4 fonts (with additional extended and oblique versions) created by David C. Saunders in April, 1989. A TrueType (TTF) version from 1992 is still floating around the web - most likely a slightly altered clone as it includes an Altsys Metamorphosis tag and no author credit to David C. Saunders. The E, F, and L, as well as some numbers, are (ever so) slightly different in the TrueType version. This is most likely the result of one of the following scenarios: 1) The original Mac version of NewCompact had these alternate characters available as extra glyphs but these were lost or altered when it was converted to TTF (a common practice in 90s and 00s font cloning was to copy a font but alter glyphs so as to circumvent legal ramifications), or 2) It was altered by a graphic designer for Spice Girls marketing and merchandise (probably to make the SPICE logotype more balanced).
See above post for Mustang Sans, a Spice Girls accurate recreation which features the wider E, F and L as well as more accurate numbers and punctuation.
Telford Italic from Telford family (4 fonts including Regular, Italic, Hollow, Hollow Italic) created by Roger White in 1993.

Sequence created on an Aston Character Generator from Aston Broadcast Systems available in the UK since the early 1970's. Several units (Aston 1, 2, 3, 4, etc...) were made so it is hard to pinpoint the exact model used by the production but it is likely one made before 1979.

Pre-digital typeface originally known as Besslin / Besselin from Monsen Typographers, Inc. They had offices in Chicago and Los Angeles.
Stretched out, this could be close.
The 'e' has been customized.
Actually, it's Dynamo Bold Condensed. Nougat by Dieter Steffmann is a digitization of Dynamo Bold that did not appear until long after the film was released in 1993. The 2 is set in Futura Extra Bold, condensed to blend with the logotype.
Based on the 'S' it looks closer to Bee Two, which is a digital version of Filmotype Gable.
After study of late 80s and early 90s merchandise, I believe the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA type may have been based on a condensed ITC Stone Sans Bold (Sumner Stone, 1987) as it was released the same year the original TV show began airing and was also used on several associated products. However, Corinthian Bold Condensed (Colin Brignall, 1981) is also very close, particularly with the look of the M and J, and was even used on some of the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles logos in the UK/Europe.

For TRUMP PLAZA, a customized ITC Benguiat...
It may have been a custom monospace bitmap font (aka raster font) for video use, possibly based on DIN 1451. Also featured on video displays in 1979's Alien. Something close in feel might be Arial Narrow 7 from Styleľ7.
