Game Time: The Legend of Zelda (1989)

The Legend of Zelda was a once-a-week feature on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show, giving Mario & Luigi's animated selves a day off. Unfortunately, only 13 episodes of Zelda were produced, as both Zelda and Super Mario Bros. were cancelled at the end of the season, only for Mario & Luigi to move to NBC as part of a DIC-Nintendo block of shows for the next two seasons, albeit in new adventures.

Let's start with the opener, which includes the Super Show open:

No rating. Never saw these cartoons.

Saw a little of this show back in the day - nothing special. About all it had going for it was Zelda's arrogant protector always saying, "Excuuuuse me Princess!".

That got old quick!
