Product Details

Product Description


Inspired by the popular 1980s Nintendo game, The Legend of Zelda: The Complete Animated Series contains 13 enjoyable, self-deprecating adventures featuring haughty Princess Zelda and her frustrated, would-be suitor and courageous ally, Link. Guardians of the Triforce of Wisdom, a powerful object that sits, curiously unguarded, in Zelda's castle, the stuck-up princess and grousing Link are forever fending off assaults by the evil Ganon, a sort of underworld demon. Ganon wants the Triforce of Wisdom because he possesses a similar Triforce--together, the magical items would make him all-powerful. While there's a lot of sword-and-sorcery action, the tone of Legend of Zelda's short pieces is unmistakably comic, driven by a constant and unrelieved romantic tension between the two leads. Link is constantly saving Zelda's hide, ever-hopeful of a kiss, while Zelda keeps him on tenterhooks, leading him right to the brink of satisfaction and then…well, maybe next time. Among the best episodes is "The White Knight," in which Zelda's infatuation with a vain, preening demon-slayer sends an irritated Link packing—until the interloper refuses to rescue Zelda because he might get his clothes dirty. Each episode features the original Mario Brothers introduction from the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

The complete series on DVD for the first time! Link is back to protect Princess Zelda and the Triforce of Wisdom from the clutches of the evil Ganon. The Legend Of Zelda - The Complete Animated Series (spawned from the massively popular and influential '80s Nintendo game) is an exciting classic that captures all of the adventure, action and nostalgia that makes The Legend Of Zelda a beloved fan favorite! The Legend Of Zelda - The Complete Animated Series (all 13 episodes) is available for the first time on this expansive 3-Disc Set. The animated series The Legend Of Zelda debuted in 1989 on Fridays during The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! week-daily broadcast. It originally aired in conjunction with the first Legend Of Zelda game release and breathes life into the characters of Link, Princess Zelda and the evil wizard Ganon - fleshing out their personalities with a little bit of romance and a dash of humor. Like the game itself, each episode follows the adventures of Link as he bravely defends the kingdom of Hyrule from the evil wizard Ganon and his dim-witted minions, yet also manages to find time to try to steal a kiss from Zelda.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great collection for hardcore Nintendo fans April 7 2009
Although they were never that popular with critics, Nintendo (in partnership with DIC entertainment) produced several animated adventures in the late eighties/early nineties, based on the two big games at the time: Super Mario Bros. and The Legend Of Zelda. Shout! entertainment has now brought them back to DVD with the release of several box sets. The Legend Of Zelda show was no exception.

Lets start by being totally honest. If you just know the Zelda series from picking up the newest release at the store a while back, you're not going to enjoy this. If you're only a casual gamer who maybe remembers playing Zelda a few times as a kid, you're not going to enjoy this. The Legend Of Zelda box set is more like a speciality release, aimed mainly at nostalgic adults who remember watching the show religiously on TV during their youth or (like myself) are AVID Zelda followers.

I actually enjoyed the show a lot more than I originally thought I would. Many of the episodes are fun to sit through and packed with plenty of action and adventure. The picture quality is painfully so-so. It doesn't seem like much was done to restore the image, but thanks to DVD the colors are vibrant and the image is clear enough.

The packaging is sturdy and keeps the DVDs together well in a fold-out box. There are three discs in all, with some interesting bonus features such as the original art work and a trivia quiz about the game and show.

It's a nice little package that you'll enjoy if you're a huge Zelda fan. If you're just a casual passer-by looking to pick this up, either pass it by or save it for your kids.

I watched The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! during its original run, and I'm extraordinarily grateful that Shout! Factory has brought the series to DVD. That said, I'm not entirely happy with the final product in this case.

I understand why it makes more sense to sell the Legend of Zelda episodes separately instead of with the Super Mario episodes. What I don't understand is why they removed most of the live-action Mario Bros. wraparound segments from these episodes. Given that some of the best guest stars (most notably, for me, Ernie Hudson in episode 5 of the series, the first episode of this collection) were on Zelda episodes, it is truly unfortunate that someone made this decision.

Oh, well. It's still a wonderful taste of nostalgia. I just hope that someone else eventually releases a better collection.

Love it. Brings me back to watching the show while growing up. Glad to finally be an owner of my own copy when I'm in a nostalgic mood.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have collection! July 19 2006
This set is cool. When I watch the episodes they take me back in time to when I was young and used to sit at the tv every saturday. I also recommend the super mario bros. supershow to go with this set because they were played together on tv.
