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. Other segments included "Donkey Kong Jr.," the famous gorilla's young son who was aided in his search by his human friend, Bones; "Frogger," about an investigative amphibious reporter for the Swamp Gazette; "Pitfall," featuring the adventures of Pitfall Harry, his pet mountain lion Quickclaw and his niece Rhonda as they traveled through the forest in search of treasure; and "Q*Bert," about the misadventures of a teen-aged orange creature.

Saturday supercade time!
12 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Saturday supercade was a one hour show based on the best video games at the time. The shows changed each week. Here's what was on it.

DONKEY KONG--mario (from super mario), chases donkey kong around the world.

DONKEY KONG JR--Donkey kong's son is looking for his dad with the help of bones. A biker who is scared all the time.

Q-BERT--Q-bert is a teen who protects his town from a gang of snakes, with the help of a flying disk that the bad guys try to steal.

FROGGER--Frogger is a reporter who teams up with a girl frog, and a turtle who has everything you can think of in his shell.

PITFALL--Pitfall, his niece, and their pet quickclaw go looking for treasures.

SPACE ACE--Super hero space ace got zapped by a youth ray and changes to dexter, a nerdy little kid at the worst times.

KANGAROO--A mother kangaroo and her son stop monkey's from making trouble at the zoo.

I wish they would show this again. I have 2 full episodes on tape and would love to see the rest again.
