HASH(0xa17a20cc) out of 5 stars Replacement Program for disc 3 coming soon March 21 2007
By j.martin - Published on
Format: DVD
as some of you are aware disc 3 of the set on episode queen of the apes is missing about 3 min of footage , i recently sent a e-mail to shout factory to let them know of the flaw and i got the following e-mail back :

Hi Jason,

You are right, there was an error. We are in the process of correcting the problem. Once everything gets worked out we are going to make arrangements to manufacture the corrected disc, and give them out free to everyone that bought the box set. This process will take about a month though, so the best thing to do is to hold on to your set and check back with us in a month or so. We apologize for the incontinence.

so within a month you can send the disc in for a replacement

HASH(0xa8359924) out of 5 stars Not Quite Complete, But Contains Captain N's Best Two Seasons! Jan. 21 2007
By Servo - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Based on the 6-page short story "Captain Nintendo" published in Nintendo Power magazine issues 3 & 4, Captain N: The Game Master debuted September 9, 1989 on NBC, and was immediately embraced by Saturday morning viewers. Fans of the video games Mega Man, Castlevania and Kid Icarus however were dumbfounded by the show's redesign of Mega Man and Simon Belmont characters, and the renaming of the "Pit" character. Due to reasons privy only to Shout! Factory, the 7 episodes that comprise the third season of Captain N will not be released in this set.

"Captain N: The Game Master" is a 4-disc (570 min.) set which contains all 13 episodes from Season One, plus all 13 episodes from Season Two in Full Frame (1.33:1) video. Thanks to the folks at Shout! Factory, fans not only get the best seasons of Captain N in an official quality DVD set, but also the following Special features:

* Character Video Bios including narration taken directly from the text of the Captain N bible
* Exploring Videoland: Concept art for the worlds and locations of Captain N: The Game Master
* The Original Preview for "Kevin In Videoland"
* "Captain Nintendo" - the Nintendo Power short story that started it all!

Captain N Season One:
1. Kevin in Videoland
2. How's Bayou?
3. The Most Dangerous Game Master
4. Videolympics
5. Mega Trouble For Megaland
6. Wishful Thinking
7. Three Men & A Dragon
8. Mr. & Mrs. Mother Brain
9. Nightmare On Mother Brain's Street
10. Simon The Ape-Man
11. In Search Of The King
12. Metroid Sweet Metroid
13. Happy Birthday, Megaman

HASH(0xa18e4dbc) out of 5 stars For those that don't know Oct. 23 2006
By B. Massey - Published on
Format: DVD
Despite me searching the net for years just to find even a few episodes of Captain N, bagging some chewed up videos, placing orders from dodgy sites that never arrived, obtaining nasty pirate copies and fake DVD's that barely worked, they've finally decided to release the series on DVD. And although I would have liked it to have been sooner, I suppose that it couldn't really have come at a much better time than this.

For those that don't know, the N in Captain N, stands for Nintendo, and seeing as Nintendo have swiftly restored their rightful place on the top spot of the video game world with the DS and the Wii, this show once again has a place.

The series, started in around 1991 was based around a kid called Kevin who got sucked through his Nes while playing Mike Tyson's Punch out, and found himself in Videoland, with the nes pad on his belt and the lightgun to get him through different worlds. His N team consisted of famous characters from Nes games such as Megaman, Kid Icarus and Simon Belmont from Castlevania. Seeing as the Wii has a device that allows you to download many of these old games, the series will make sense to even new generations of game players.

Anyway, at the end of the day, none of that really matters. What matters is whether or not the series was any good, and seeing as this was made during a time when Children's cartoons were at there best, and it had Nintendo funding, it's no surprise that it was. Some of it is amazing. The animation dipped after the first season, eventually going almost completely by the very end, but the stuff on this set is all good, including some of the best moments I ever saw in a kids show. Check out the two parter when they fight Big Eye in Megaman's world, and the way that at the end of every episode they played massive songs from the time, such as Michael Jacksons Thriller during an episode in Castlevania. It's so well made that as they journey through video game to video game, it will make you wanna pick up a nes again and start playing through the games yourself. Fortunately, the Wii should mean that you actually can.

So, to summarise, any Nintendo fan, any cartoon fan, buy this series. It was up there with Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters and others as one of the best kids shows going. If only they had released it when I was still 8 years old.

HASH(0xa18fa9b4) out of 5 stars Never thought I'd see the day... Jan. 25 2007
By N. Durham - Published on
Format: DVD
Of all the cartoons I remember from my youth, I honestly never thought that Captain N: The Game Master would ever see the light of day again. Then again, considering the renaissance that Nintendo is going through thanks to the Wii and DS, maybe it's of little surprise that this old Nintendo cartoon would make it's way to DVD. Originally airing in the late 80's/early 90's, when Nintendo was king of the console world (then again, they pretty much were the console world at the time), Captain N revolved around a California teenager lured into the interactive world of video games to combat evil. Alongside him in battle are video game characters including Castlevania's Simon Belmont, Capcom's robot icon Mega Man, and even cult video game icon Kid Icarus. As the show goes on, nearly every popular series to get it's start on the 8-bit NES is covered on Captain N; ranging from Tetris, Punch-Out (no Mike Tyson), Metroid, and even Zelda and Link (who had their own animated series too), and the series maintains a fun atmosphere throughout with a good amount of kid-aimed action. Watching Captain N now though suffers the same fate as many cartoons from the era; they haven't aged all too well. In the later episodes in particular, the animation (which was never really anything to write home about) seems to decline more in quality, and as a previous reviewer has already stated, not every episode in the series is here in this handsome DVD set. That aside, there's an actual nice assortment of extras for old time fans with fond memories of the series, and it's good to see Captain N make his way to DVD.

HASH(0xa2244e40) out of 5 stars Great Retro Collection Oct. 30 2007
By David Swan - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Long before Pokemon hit the airways, during the late 80's early 90's, Nintendo had several cartoon series running including Super Mario, Zelda and Captain N. I never really got into the Mario cartoon and I doubt I watched a single episode of Zelda but Captain N made an indelible impression on my memory. The animation is fairly mediocre although it does improve over time. The plots are fairly basic and the characters diverge considerably from the source material. In particular Megaman (aka The Blue Bomber) is drawn green and squatty and talks with a speech impediment. And speaking of impediments Kid Icarus has a speech affect that gets oldicus real fasticus. Simon Belmont is an arrogant dimwit rather than a heroic vampire hunter and Donkey Kong is a straight rip-off of King Kong.

Actually, the characters that I remembered most were Mother Brain's henchmen Eggplant Wizard and King Hippo. They were your typical mentally challenged underlings but somehow the shows creators managed to infuse them with enough charm and uniqueness that people still remember them two decades later. It's the small things like Hippo and Wizard that set this series apart. Captain N is definitely more than the sum of its parts. I'm not sure if Captain N would fall under the category of cult classic but it certainly says something that people still talk about the series this long after the show went off the air and there even exists a handful of websites devoted to Captain N that look as if some actual effort was put into them.

When it gets right down to it Captain N is going to be vastly more appealing to that certain segment of society that grew up playing the original NES system and watched cartoons in the late 80's early 90's. For instance, unless you've actually played Paperboy the episode `The Invasion of the Paper Pedalers' isn't going to have much meaning. On the other hand I never played Bayou Billy or Puss N' Boots but still enjoyed those episodes. The DVD special features are barely worth mentioning but in the end I don't regret getting this collection one bit. I just happen to fit the target demographic perfectly. In the end you get every episode that matters for a very reasonable price. At 9 ½ hours it's quite a bit of bang for your buck.
