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.

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 packinguntil 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
