In 1991, NBC amped up their Saturday mornings by combining two of their animated powerhouses into one half-hour time slot with Captain N & The New Super Mario World.
Based on the hit video game of the same name, The New Super Mario World completes the animated adventures of Nintendo’s iconic heroes – the Super Mario Brothers (Mario and Luigi), Princess Toadstool, and their dinosaur friend Yoshi, who band together on Dinosaur Island to fight King Koopa and the Koopa kids.
And in Captain N: The Game Master, ordinary California teenager Kevin Keene becomes Captain N, the hero of Videoland – a universe where Nintendo video games are real! Captain N and his dog Duke join the N Team, which consists of fellow crime fighters Princess Lana, Simon Belmont, Kid Icarus, and Game Boy. Come along for the ride as the N Team dukes it out against Mother Brain’s most heinous henchmen: King Hippo, the Eggplant Wizard, Count Dracula, and Dr. Wily. Their ultimate quest is to fulfill an ancient prophecy and bring the evil villainess Mother Brain to justice once and for all!
Captain N & The New Super Mario World originally aired for one season on NBC in the fall of 1991. Each half-hour episode was split into two unrelated segments. Captain N aired on its own for 2 seasons before being paired with Super Mario World for its 3rd season. Super Mario World followed closely on the success of previous Mario Bros. cartoons The Super Mario Bros. Super Show and The Adventures of Super Mario 3. Captain N & The New Super Mario World 2-DVD set will be available on November 13, 2007 for $29.99 SRP.
