Had a great night last night - we watched:
Legend of Zelda
Super Mario Bros Super Show
Sonic The Hedgehog (SatAM series)
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.
Dammit! I was gonna say Earthworm Jim. I guess i'll be slaughtered if i suggest pokemon or digimon...
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.
Dungeons and Dragons, dude.
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.
So bummed i couldn't make it :-(
