Wow I did forget Pokemon.   But yeah, that entire franchise sucks, so some wouldn't count it but I hate Earthworm Jim yet I still counted the cartoon.

In case anyone hasnt realised yet, Lorealmighty wants to be Maddox, theres a link to his site in his profile. Lore: A hint. It stops being funny after one person has done it. :P

Well anyway, I think most japanese games are either a cartoon to begin with or are made into one as soon as they sell 1000 units.

Anyway anyway. Earthworm Jim was great, ahh, got to love absurdist humour.

If there was a hell, it may have been Earthworm Jim.

All of them, I do have fond memories of watching two mario shows when I was younger, but that is so long ago that I only remember that in of them the song "Girls just want to have fun now" was in.

Except Earth Worm Jim, but it has been years since I have seen any of them.

I know my friend downloaded all the EWJ episodes from the net a while ago I probably should do that or something.

I used to love the Legend of Zelda cartoons that came on the Super Mario Brothers Super Show.  Captain Nintendo was sheer genius though.  It was so beautifully 80s.  Future archaelogists could just watch an episode and know so much about that epoch.  Reboot was a pretty decent show in relation to videogames as well.  Especially the crazy 4th season.  Maniac Mansion had a brief live action show on Scifi for a while but I caught like 5 minutes of it.  The Earthworm Jim series was very fun although I was not a huge fan of the game.  I'm pretty sure Street Fighter has had several iterations both in America and in Japan but I know they had a cartoon for a while, possibly on USA.

Now, Videogames that need cartoons include:
Civilization
Pirates!
Bejeweled
and of course, Tetris.

Captain T must defend his planet from the evil Blockoids and their rectangular landing ships. Hell, Meteos managed to have a story :P

The only reason the CG-animated Donkey Kong series hasn't been mentioned here is that it was so bad that there was a pact not to mention it again...until now.

Hey, I liked that show. But then again, I was 7 when it was on.

Faugh! The 80s werent evil. Well, the two years I spent living in the 80s didnt seem too evil... maybe because I only had basic perception skills :P

Back on topic: There was a donkey kong cartoon? What the crap? The old DK or the new DK?
