sure was a lucky teenager. He got to live the dream that all of us had at
one point or another... to actually be IN the video games, rather than
just playing them. He's playing his Nintendo one afternoon, when all of a
sudden the TV lights up and sucks him right in. Now he's in another
dimension called "Videoland", where he becomes Captain N (armed with a Zapper Gun),
accompanied by his stupid dog "Duke".
It was his
job to keep the peace in Videoland, while Mother Brain was constantly
coming up with new evil plots. Luckily, he had the help of some other
familiar video game characters: Megaman ("MEGA-HI!" he put "mega" before
almost every word he spoke), Kid Icarus (who puts "icus" after most of his
words), Bayou Billy (aka: Crocodile Dundee), and even Simon Belmont. I
didn't like Simon's character on the show though, because all he did was
care about how good he looked. Definitely not the badass monster slayer
from the Castlevania series. But no character was more annoying than
Gameboy, who was unveiled in season 2. I mean, fuck, besides the obvious
desire to advertise their new handheld product, what the hell was Nintendo
thinking here!? It's not like Gameboy was even a character in another
video game unlike the rest of the cast, so it didn't make any sense.
Everybody I know that watched this show couldn't wait for the day that Gameboy was destroyed. Just look at him, you know he deserves to
die. Unfortunately, he never did die, but the show did after only 3
seasons. Stick with The Wizard or The
Super Mario Bros. Super Show, there are no Gameboys in 'em.
