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.

The Zelda cartoons, themselves, are a lot of fun. Granted, they are a little silly and could even be considered 'cheesey' from a certain point of view, but they are what they are. They may not come across as serious as some of the video games (i.e. Ocarania of Time), but this is perfect for something targeted at kids. I was 9 when this show came out, and I loved it. And I love looking back on it now.
If I were rating just the cartoons, in-and-of themselves, and not the DVD as a whole, I would give it 5 stars.
But, as you've probably noticed, I only gave it three stars. And I have reasoning behind this.
I just picked this DVD up earlier this week as well as the recently released boxed set of the Super Mario Bros. Super Show.
The SMBSS set is the first in a series of box sets that will collect all of the non-Zelda episodes of the series. There are 24 episodes on that 4-disc set, complete with all live action segments and all cartoons (it even has the previews for the Zelda episodes).
Having bought that at the same time, I found it very disapointing that all of the complete live-action segments were not included on this Zelda release (only a handful of episodes include them). Being that I am kind of a 'completist' and wanted to have the whole 'Super Show' series in as complete of a manner as possible, I found this to be a let down.Read more ›

But the series is most enjoyable for those of us who faithfully stuck to the actual video game series. The implimentation of original 8-bit sound effects into the cartoon is an added bonus that draws us back for more. And waiting to see which classic Zelda enemy will cause Link and Zelda trouble next is just that much more fun (especially if you can name them).
But by far the most fun thing about this show is waiting and praying for the day when Link can coax a kiss out of the lovely Princess. And they've come so close it almost made me angry when they got interrupted. Link tries so hard, and makes such an idiot out of himself trying, that you'd think he deserves a little action once in a while. but every time, no matter how he tries, he either messes up or is interrupted by Ganon's non-stop attempts to steal the Triforce.
All in all, if you grew up with te Super Mario Super Show, and you're a Nintendo fan, you'll appreciate this show as much as you love to watch it.
Each episode is 15 minutes in length because the original show was part of Captain N and the video game masters. Each morning you'd get a different line-up, of either a Mario Bros episode, Legend of Zelda, or Captain N (which combined several games.)
This is an item best for total Zelda nuts (deku-nuts) who watched the cartoon as a child. It's typical of every Saturday morning cartoon show, somewhat removed from the source material (understandably) although it does include video game sound effects.
Link is characterized as a rather narcissistic young man with an attitude, which might annoy some people.
Excuuuuuusssseee me, Princess!
