The history of Captain N is a convoluted one, despite its brief network run; while earning respectable ratings, the show was partnered with an animated Super Mario Brothers cartoon (which aired as Captain N and The Adventures of Super Mario Brothers 3) before being edited down to a supporting role in its own series and finally giving up the ghost in 1991. Due to its varying lengths and formats, the episodes contained here are only from the first and second season (and for the latter, the Super Mario Brothers portions have been removed). Nothing from the truncated, seven-episode Season 3 is included, which may be a stumbling block for dedicated fans. Extras are somewhat limited as well; thumbnail bios for each of the main characters are spread across the four discs, but little is given about their creation and development in the series. Similarly, the "Exploring Videoland" interactive featurette is a simple gallery of images from the various locations within Videoland. More interesting to the hardcore devotee will be the original cartoon from Nintendo Power magazine that provided the inspiration for the series, which rounds out the supplemental features. -- Paul Gaita

This could have been given 5 stars due to its having so many characters together. This probably couldn't be done today. I think it would cause a copyright nightmare. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Amazon Customer

Incidently, the third series is available on the "Super Mario World" box set, and for some strange reason, my 2 year old loves it!
