Storyline

Kevin Keene, a teenager from Northridge, California, is brought to another universe known as Videoland, along with his dog, Duke, to defeat the evil villainess, Mother Brain. Mother Brain is trying to conquer Videoland. Kevin has been brought to defeat her, as foretold in an Ancient Prophecy. Kevin is given the title "Captain N: The Game Master". He and Duke join the N Team, which consists of Princess Lana (the Ruler of Videoland), Simon Belmont (the hero from Castlevania), Mega Man, Kid Icarus, and Gameboy (a giant supercomputer). The N Team goes up against the evil Mother Brain (the villain from Metroid) and her minions, King Hippo (Punch-Out), the Eggplant Wizard (Kid Icarus), and Dr. Wily (Mega Man). These forces of good and evil go up against each other and often find themselves in comical, hilarious situations. Written by Mark Moore <kevinkeene@geocities.com>

Trivia

The working title of the show was "Captain Nintendo - The Game Master", and the working title for the pilot episode was "Kevin in Nintendoland." This had to be changed, as the network didn't want the word Nintendo in the title - they felt that would be blatant advertising. See more »

Goofs

In "In Search Of The King", the gateway in the Mirror World that leads into and out of the world looks entirely different on the coming visit than on the going visit. See more »

Quotes

Kid Icarus: Thanks, Kevinikus. You're a pretty good game master, after all.
Kevin Keene: Thank me later. We've got to warp out of here before Donkey Kong gives us the Big Game Over.

Not to shabby
14 January 2000 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

The show was created to sell Nintendo games. Even though it was made for that purpose, it was surprising to see entertainment in it. In other shows made to sell games, the quality and entertainment level is extremely low. So that makes this show refreshing. It's interesting to see various Nintendo characters team up but the disappointment was no team up with Nintendo's best character, Mario. Anyway, I have to say this to NBC. This show came from a time when NBC's Saturday morning line up really didn't suck. NBC should scrap there horrible live teen show line up and bring this show back.
