    You think this cartoon was bad? You should see the Super Mario World series.

    Ever notice that cartoon Zelda & CD-i Zelda wear the same suit?

    Link + Mario = Finn. Zelda + Toadstool = Bubblegum. Why isn't Nintendo beating down Pendleton Ward's door for the rights to Adventure Time?

    I recommend watching this episode of TGWTG back-to-back with Phelous' "Super Mario Christmas."

    I bought the DVD set of this the day it came out, because I just knew 20 years later I would love it.

    My conclusion? Good god, I was a stupid kid.

    want to know whats funny my sister bought volume 1 a couple of weeks ago. I TRIED watching it but i couldn't stand it. I got really pissed at dick entertainment because not only did they ruin one of the best nintendo characters they had to ruin Zelda as well :angry:
  • Ecto-64  - Don't think so.
    Pretty sure that is a lie, because Dic released the entire Zelda series on it's own dvd. Volume 1 of the SMBSS only has trailers that were posted during the middle of the show...

    Nice but i kinda expected a bit more. Still happy that NC is back and hope there will be more vids now to make up for the problems.

    You did again. Once again you made great and funny video review. Still I didn't get that point why you also reviewd LoZ cartoon.

    I find it appropriate that Doug's facial hair is back in time to review a cartoon with one of the most famous mustaches ever.

    Wow, just wow. I remember this show. It got me wanting to eat Italian food :P

    Friday growing up was definitely Zelda cartoon day. Amazing how much we were able to put up with back then just to see our favorite video game heroes on tv.

    Oh, and uh, I like Ganon's teleport.

    LOL I enjoyed this review. Not only did you rip apart Mario but blindsided us with Zelda. I applaude your wit NC. I never realized how lame the Zelda cartoon was cause I remember in 3rd garde, this was the reason why you came home early on a friday afternoon. Man, what an atrocious piece of shit this was. Anyway, is there a possiblity youll be doing a review of the other Mario cartoons? Mario 3, Mario World? How about other DiC related video game shows like Captain N or even the 3 Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons? Id have to say this review was probably better than the proposed Good Son review.

    Is it me, or does Ganon in the cartoon look like Snaggletooth off of Motorhead's album covers? If so, METAL!!!
  • ZekeDragon  - Now now...
    If you had the ability to teleport AT WILL you'd do it constantly and for no good reason everywhere you went too.

    At least I would, so I don't see blaming Ganon for that. :)

    Otherwise, yep, pretty crappy set of shows.
  • wpc33
    I look forward to the review of the impossibly creepy, yet funny Good Son.
    This show was only popular because it made the obsessed-about Mario/Zelda games that much more real. WHen we got our NES' back then, it was like a whole new world(to my 5-year-old mind) and no one I knew could get enough of it.
    The characters represented so much fun, that even a shite show like that could be fun, too.

    Not these days, though!
  • baba44713  - OMG.. beardie!!
    Beardie is back! When did that happen?

    I wonder if Bum and That Guy will also show up with beards... nah. That would be too much of a coincidence.

    P.S. Great vid. :)

    Because as he said the Legend of Zelda cartoon was actually part of the super mario brothers super show caroon.

    Man I used to have such fond memories of this show. I used to love it so much when I was a kid but now I see that it was complete garbage, thanks a lot nostalgia critic you've ruined one of my key childhood memories, now I'll never be the same. ;D

    Were you talking about Bill Nighy (not Bill Nye) as the british guy?

    LOVED THIS REVIEW. This is my favorite Nostalgia Critic video of all time (probably because I bought Super Mario Brothers: Mario's Movie Moments on DVD roughly 3 years ago)
  • BallsMonkey  - About the King Koopa
    That's what Bowser is called in Japan. I guess the writers of the cartoon liked that better.

    Although I experienced no change in facial expression, My insides were exploding from the humor of the ending.

    I remember this being the high light of my Friday's when I was a kid just because it was about Zelda and as a kid you really just accept anything you see on TV. But for as crappy as the show was I have to admit that I prefer this Zelda over the games Zelda just because she is actually a part of the show instead of being a boring character that appears for a few scenes if not just at the end. Also, this is proof of why link should never talk but for as lame as this Link is at least he has a personality.

    Reviewing the Zelda cartoon in addition to the Mario cartoon was the best surprise I've ever had from this site. I think this video is one of the best Doug has made!
  • leafeknight7

    The best part to me of this video is that before it was mentioned, I was thinking that he should review the Zelda cartoon. God I was laughing hard when it showed up. "Well excuse me Princess!" is the line that even made that cartoon memorable. I'll bet some people forgot all about it either by force or just grew up on better shows. I hope for more really awesome reviews in the near future.

    The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 was a much better show than this. I'm a bit annoyed that it only got like 1/5 of the episodes the Super Mario Brothers Super Show got.

    Though I should respond to something you said at the start of the video, when you mentioned how they couldn't use the Super Mario Brothers premise (which was "two guys save a princess from a turtle") to make an entire cartoon. Well, I should point out that the same company who made this series actually managed to do so with Sonic the Hedgehog (I refer to the SatAM one, not the sillier "The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog", though the same company made both). SatAM actually made a fairly complex and interesting series out of such a simple gaming plot. A comic series based on it is STILL GOING ON after all these years and is almost at issue #200.

    Very funny!!!
    At least it wasn't Sonic Underground......
    Sonic singing = gun in the mouth!
  • DanManX  - Cool, but...

    Okay, it was funny, it was a great throwback to something all video game fans revile, yadda yadda...

    Two things though: As BallsMonkey has already pointed out, King Koopa is what Bowser was originally called, and still is in Japan.

    The other thing is that in the original The Legend of Zelda game, there WERE only the two Triforces. Wisdom and Power, like in the cartoon. Courage didn't show up until Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, and even then only in the story found in the manual; you never see it or find it in the game (Link is said to already possess it).

    So yeah. I had to correct a fan on a similar topic on AVGN's site just yesterday.

    Speaking of, does anyone else find it cool that the recent computer problems caused the Critic to release his SMBSS/Zelda review a week after AVGN concluded his CD-i review, which ALSO contained horrible, horrible blights against the names of Mario and Zelda? I mean, the problems were unfortunate and obviously the passing of McCulkin's sister is nothing "cool," but still, it's a neat coincidence in the end, no?
