Captain N: The Game Master Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 The first season of this show was pretty good despite the changes made to the characters. I remember when both Captain N and Captain Planet were on Saturday mornings in the early 90s. Captain N was too much of a 30 minute advertisement for the NES, but it was still enjoyable. The tail of the fish was cut off once Gameboy showed up. How could a Gameboy turn up in a NES world? It's impossible. Were links for the Gameboy and NES even available back then? If so, who connected it to the NES? The fish was completely all bones after the Super NES came out. It must have stunk for Kevin to still be stuck in the NES after all of his friends were playing Super Mario World at the Super NES kiosk (boy, do those bring back memories). The animation was too blocky during the shows third season. I stopped watching it in ninety one but I never missed an episode of Super Mario World. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 5:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 This show came out during the prime of Nintendo's popularity. It's one of the reasons I never really got on the whole Saturday morning cartoon bandwagon as a kid. Even as a 6-7 year old, I could tell this was nothing but a cheap 30 minute commercial for Nintendo. Captain N and the Princess were nothing more than Zack and Kelly ripoffs from Saved by the Bell, the characters were poorly designed and had annoying personalities. For example, Simon Belmont in the Castelvania games is a fearless vampire hunter. In the cartoon, he was an annoying chauvinist. Mega Man looked like a fat little man who just said "Mega" in front of every word. By the time Gameboy was introduced, I gave up that any Nintendo-based cartoon was ever going to be of high quality. Day one. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 21, 2010, 5:52 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Another TV show that didn't age well and some character designs were awful. Some obvious bad designs were Mega Man and King Hippo, and some characters were downright irritating. I enjoyed it long ago, now it's painful to watch. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 29, 2010, 6:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 the show was one giant commercial for nintendo games, and that was totally fine since almost every game there was a big deal, good game. -- Submitted By: (VeritechRyan) on October 20, 2010, 4:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I REALLY think they could remake this series... most of the people who played the NES games are adults now with fond memories of the NES and the original series of Captain N. They could remake it to be a lot darker, more mature, and insert lots of more hilarious jokes. "Nigga stole my bike" and "Its dangerous to go alone! Take this....... old man with you! :(" 4chan type jokes would be hilarious to see in a new remake of the series. -- Submitted By: (KaseyAkira) on March 16, 2010, 3:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I think the show was fine for the audience it was aiming for... mostly kids around 8 or 12 years old who liked to play video games. As adults looking back from a different era, yea we'd like to see a more mature, darker side of Captain N with greater character development... but come on. This was made by Nintendo, and aimed towards little kids. -- Submitted By: (KaseyAkira) on November 28, 2009, 3:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 A bad show made even worse by retconning! This fish keeps on boning! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 1, 2009, 10:31 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I have to agree with the above comments, and while the most obvious Fish Boning should come at the beginning of season 2 when we get introduced to the character of Game Boy (really.... it wasn't a big enough Nintendo commercial as it was??), but in my opinion I think it boned at episode 2. This is the episode where Mother Brian is trying to find a weakness for Kevin so she (somehow) replays the video of right before he gets pulled into Videoland to see which game was troubling him most. Now, those of us that watched the opening credits know it was Punch Out (with a non-green Hippo), but for some strange reason in the show it ends up being.....Bayou Billy?!?? (and a terrible cartoon version, couldnt we have thrown in a clip from the game?) Most of us as kids can usually suspend a little disbelief here and there, but I remember as a kid being totally pissed about this HUGE show flaw!!!!! I was so mad that I only watched two more seasons of the show and called it quits after that! Take that Captain N and Nintendo.. Anyway, I'm getting a little off subjet, I say Episode 2 -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 8, 2009, 7:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Yes! Captain N is getting bwned! What an awful excuse for a video game based cartoon. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 30, 2009, 12:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 A show that messes up video game characters this bad could only have been done on purpose. I know graphics in the games of the time weren't that advanced and often only a brief description was offered in the instruction manual, but even the most basic and obvious of character traits were changed for no good reason. How does Simon Belmont go from fearless vampire hunter to a whiny primadonna in World War I aviator garb? How do you turn Mega Man into a green midget with the voice of a chain smoker? Why was King Hippo blue, or even in this show for that matter? They could have picked a much better representative for Punch Out if they had to. Then there was Pit from Kid Icarus, with his 80s hairdo and faux-Latin manner of speaking. Considering this show as intended as little more than a half-hour commercial for Nintendo, you would think there would have been more effort put into it. -- Submitted By: (LoyalPigeon) on April 29, 2009, 2:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
