Storyline

Kevin Keene, a teenager from Northridge, California, is brought to another universe known as Videoland, along with his dog, Duke, to defeat the evil villainess, Mother Brain. Mother Brain is trying to conquer Videoland. Kevin has been brought to defeat her, as foretold in an Ancient Prophecy. Kevin is given the title "Captain N: The Game Master". He and Duke join the N Team, which consists of Princess Lana (the Ruler of Videoland), Simon Belmont (the hero from Castlevania), Mega Man, Kid Icarus, and Gameboy (a giant supercomputer). The N Team goes up against the evil Mother Brain (the villain from Metroid) and her minions, King Hippo (Punch-Out), the Eggplant Wizard (Kid Icarus), and Dr. Wily (Mega Man). These forces of good and evil go up against each other and often find themselves in comical, hilarious situations. Written by Mark Moore <kevinkeene@geocities.com>

Goofs

Some of the most common animation errors on the show involve Kevin's Power Pad and Zapper. Although his official Zapper color is orange, it appears gray in many scenes. Likewise, his Power Pad is often missing the Select and Start buttons, and in the third season the A and B buttons are vertical as opposed to the proper horizontal. See more »

Quotes

Kevin Keene: How did I get here? Simon Belmont? Kid Icarus? Megaman?
Simon Belmont: And you must be Captain N. Ha! Ha! Ha!
Kevin Keene: You guys aren't real. You're just so many computer plates in my game cartridges.
[pokes Simon]
Kevin Keene: Whoa! They're REAL!
Simon Belmont: Looks like the ultimate warp zone brought us the ultimate wimp!

This was a really stupid show...
22 May 2003 | by burningtyphoonSee all my reviews

Why did they have to ruin those video game characters like that. Geez!!! None of them looked they way were suppose to look. I'm a HUGE Megaman fan and it was insulting to see what they did to him. Since when was Megaman actually a Bobby Hill look-a-like wearing green spandex?! Who in the world is Megagirl?!!!? She hasn't appeared in ANY of the Original Megaman series games or any other series for that matter (and don't you dare say that Megagirl is Roll!!!!!) Plus Dr. Light looks like a stupid little troll and the same goes for Dr. Wily. Simon was a completely vain and stuck-up (he's suppose to be cool, casual, and quiet...) The only convincing character design was Mother Brain. The storyline is very corny. A teenage boy named Kevin Keene goes to a place called Videoland... blah, blah, blah... meets up with video game characters... yada, yada, yada... Kevin goes there to save Videoland. he end... coooooorny. I know this was made back in 1989, but there's still no excuse for slaughtering video game characters like that. I hope there isn't a Japanese dub for this show, because that would be embarrassing for Japan to see Rockman (A.K.A Megaman's name in Japan) look like that stupid little "green" runt. He's suppose to be blue, not green!!! "Mega" this and "Mega" that... give me a damn break.

OVERALL Negative 1,000 out of 10. I'm sorry. I was just joking... Negative 999 out of 10!!!!
