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.

Wow! Lost & Found, and Loved!
18 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

It took me years to find something on this one! When this cartoon aired on TV,back in 1983 (I was about 9, or something). . . .I was amazed at the fun look it portrayed! The superbly catchy theme song forever stuck itself in my mind! YES, 1984, when it was in full-time swing on Saturday Morning TV, I was 10 years old, now that I recall. 20+ years later I paid some guy in Florida $20.00 for a copy he said he had! I got it in the mail (living in Winston-Salem at the time) and I was thoroughly satisfied with what I received. ORIGINAL COMMERCIALS & all! I miss such cool cartoons as these! They ought to be aired on TV once more!
