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>

One of the worst cartoons in history...
26 September 2014 | by turbowashington7See all my reviews

This show is atrocious! If you are even remotely a Nintendo fan, this show is a complete disgrace to the many franchises represented. If you aren't a Nintendo fan, this show is a disgrace to humanity. Everything in this show is utter trash. The plots, characters, settings, animation, humor, references, etc. It's a failed attempt at being a Nintendo show. It's way worse than the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, and that's saying something! The portrayals of the game characters are humiliating. Mega Man is a brat who adds mega to all of his sentences, Simon Belmont is a clumsy idiot, there's a Game Boy that flies the main characters around, and that's just scratching the surface. And by the way, the main character is an extremely bland teenager who got sucked into "Video Land" where all the Nintendo characters apparently live. Evidently this show's idea of humor is randomly spouting out catch phrases and constantly using overused and unoriginal gags. This show is bland, unoriginal, idiotic, ungraceful, humiliating, annoying, unmercifully awful, and a complete waste of time. Captain N: The Game Master has no redeemable aspects and I sincerely hope you do not taint your life with this abomination of a cartoon.
