Videogame cartoons
Had a great night last night - we watched:

Legend of Zelda
Super Mario Bros Super Show
Captain N
Sonic The Hedgehog (SatAM series)
Reboot

We were going to watch some knightmare, but apparently my DVD drive is too old for DVD+R and can only read -R. Or something.

Anyone remember any game cartoons we missed out? Cartoons which had game spin-offs are disqualified, as are films (even the awesome street-fighter ones) - there are just too many game-based films.

There was a Pac-Man cartoon, also Double Dragon, and recently the Devil May Cry anime (but I'll let that one slide as it is quite new).

I mean to try out the DMC anime. While Double Dragon was pretty dire, even for my tastes, I'd be interested to see the Pac-Man cartoon.

I did love Earthworm Jim :V
AFAIK, Pokemon and Digimon were package deals, like Carmen Sandiego. Nevertheless, they do fit the theme pretty well, I suppose!

Earthworm Jim was great. I tend to favour The Tick nowadays, but only because I watched more EWJ as a kid.

Wasn't Carmen Sandiego a simultaneous launch? It's less of a "cartoon of" and more of a whole package.

Bomberman was awesome - I'd love to see that again. Must poke John about it tomorrow.

I watched a bit of the Mortal Kombat cartoon, and yeah, it wasn't up to much. Maybe it got better?

Yes, you're right - I found some screenshots and I remember it now. Wikipedia claims '83.

However, it did suck.

Oh, there was a Qbert cartoon. I barely remember that...

I watched at least one episode of the Qbert series - that's one I should really look into.

I don't think D&D really counts as a videogame cartoon :P I do have it all on DVD, though!

I've caught a couple of eppisodes of 'Viewtiful Joe' on Jetix recently, It is pleasingly sureal, but not sure that it is worth the watching untill I have caught more.

I might check that out! I never actually got around to the game, though - maybe I can pick it up on GC for cheap.
