Storyline

Video games were exploding in popularity in the 1980s. Characters from several of the more popular games were featured in "Saturday Supercade," a weekly cartoon series perhaps most notable for being Donkey Kong's first starring appearance in a cartoon series. The famous gorilla starred in his own segment, this time as a well-meaning but slow-witted (and sometimes easily manipulated) gorilla who had escaped the circus; his trainer, Mario, and then-girlfriend Pauline (of whom Donkey Kong had a huge crush), tried to capture the large ape.

I'm still waiting for another network to revive it. The new generation needs Q*bert. He bounced and stuff, and guys chased him. Man, that is awesome. I think Q*bert could be the answer to world peace, if we'd all just give him a chance..I mean, have you played the Atari game? Do you know what an Atari is? This is fantastic... oh yeah...oh yeah.
