Episode 91 – Captain N: The Game Master
This week we decided to cover Captain N: The Game Master at Sean’s request. We mentioned before how Toyetic some shows were, but this easily has them beat. The protagonist is named “Captain Nintendo”, which can’t be any more of a product placement. This show was quite popular in it’s time, and it’s easy to see why: it hit every mark for any early 90’s kid. But could that just be our nostalgia brain, or was there real truth to that. To be fair, Sean picked this show to cover specifically because he thought it might be terrible and not hold up 27 years worth of Nostalgia goggles. Come grab a listen and if he was right…or not.
Captain N: The Game Master is an American–Canadian animated television series that aired on television from 1989 to 1991 as part of the Saturday morning cartoon lineup on NBC. The show is produced by DIC Entertainment and incorporated elements from many of the most popular video games of the time from the Japanese company Nintendo. There was also a comic book version by Valiant Comics, despite only featuring characters from games produced by Nintendo. The show is also part of an hour-long block in Season 2 with The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and with Super Mario World in Season 3 in a half-hour block.
