Saturday Supercade

Aired: 1983-1985

In the early eighties, there was a show called the Saturday Supercade. It was an hour long show, where they would show cartoons based on different arcade games: Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr, Q*Bert, Frogger, Kangaroo, Space Ace and Dragons Lair. Pac-Man and Pole Position had their own 30 minute shows, so they were not part of the Saturday Supercade.

Donkey Kong was about Mario and Pauline chasing DK all over the world in a circus. DK Jr was about him searching for his dad with some dude on a motorcycle. Unfortunately, the show only ran 2 seasons, and as far as I know no reruns have ever been shown of it. It is highly unlikely this will ever make it on a DVD TV season set, because it would be hard to license all the characters.
