The N Team is playing a shooting game, while Mother Brain, King Hippo, and Eggplant Wizard watch on Metroid. The game ends, and they're about to go back to the Palace, when the Warp Wagon is pulled down to the world of Tetris by a powerful force. Mother Brain sends Hippo and Eggy to Tetris to find the source of that power, so she can get it for herself. It turns out that on Tetris, everything is square- and cubed-shaped. The N Team is greeted by Mayor Squaresly, who declares today "Her Royal Roundness Day". The people of Tetris love holidays! The mayor takes the N Team to CUBIES, "home of the best square meal in town", where they meet Lyle, Lana's clumsy older brother. The two siblings hadn't seen each other for two years. Lyle's been on Tetris all this time, and doesn't even know that his father is missing. He's a Keeper of the Sacred Square. The Sacred Square is the powerful force that pulled down the Warp Wagon. According to legend, the Square is so powerful that it build the entire world of Tetris. Lyle thinks he's a loser, however, and believes Lana feels the same way about him. The N Team tries to train Lyle as a fighter to boost his self-confidence. It starts to work. King Hippo and Eggplant Wizard have been trying, without success, to get Lyle's key so they can get to the Square. Lyle locks it in a safe in his apartment. He then informs Lana that he's going to take his rightful place as Ruler of Videoland. She doesn't say anything to his face, but he overhears her talking about how she doesn't think he's responsible enough to be a leader. When Hippo and Eggy steal the key, Lyle tries to stop them in order to prove himself, but they get away. The N Team, except for Gameboy, goes after them. Mother Brain gets the Square, but removing it will cause all of Tetris to fall apart. Lyle and Gameboy come to the rescue. Lyle spills a black substance over Mother Brain just as she's about to warp back to Metroid. Kevin kicks the Square away, which Lyle catches. Later on, Lana offers to let Lyle rule Videoland with her. Lyle declines, realizing that the people of Tetris need him, and he remains a Keeper of the Sacred Square.

The N Team is about to be destroyed, when Lana, with encouragement from Kevin, takes off the hat. Donkey Kong destroys it, and the Lost City of Kongoland sinks again, this time forever.

When Kid Icarus meets Wombatman and gets his autograph, he's crushed to learn that Wombatman doesn't do his own stunts anymore. Wombatman sends the N Team on a tour of the studio.

Teaser song: ?
Featured song: "Wild Ride"
Dr. Wily goes to Kongoland to extract sap from trees. He uses it to make special hypnotic ink. Whoever read anything printed with the ink would be turned into a zombie whenever the words "MOTHER BRAIN IS YOUR MASTER" appeared in the text, and would have to obey Mother Brain's every command. Dr. Wily began taking over everyone on News World. A week later, the paperboy, Julio, summons the N Team to investigate. At first they're skeptical, but when Julio's mom gets turned into a zombie and tries to kill Kevin, they believe the story. Mother Brain finds out the hypnotic ink will also let her control machines. The N Team finds King Hippo and the Eggplant Wizard at the Daily Sun. Kid Icarus shoots them with love arrows, and the two servants spill the beans on Mother Brain's plan: to take over Videoland using the ink. Eggy also tells them the antidote: the sap of another tree on Kongoland. It turns out Julio hasn't turned into a zombie because he can't read. He's been skipping school to earn extra money on his paper route, because his dad lost his job. Lana teaches Julio to read and tells him the plan on how to dezombify everyone. They're going to print the word "AWAKE" on the headline using the new ink. Gameboy finds the sap, the ink is made, and the papers are printed. Unfortunately, everyone except Kevin, Gameboy, and Julio get turned into zombies and chase them as they deliver the papers. King Hippo and Eggplant Wizard are after them also. Kevin is surrounded, but Julio spells AWAKE on a huge sign. The N Team turns back to normal. Julio makes his final delivery for the day, dezombifying his mom. She invites the N Team in for dinner, and Julio's dad talks about his new job, then helps Julio catch up on his reading.

Germ Wars

Teaser song: ?
Featured song: "Frustrated" (a parody of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction")
Kevin returns from Kongoland with a strange rock. Simon starts twirling it like a basketball, and it gives off a bright flash. Kevin ends up with blue strips on his face, and he swallowed his gum. Dr. Right is called to the Palace, and he says that Kevin has been bitten by a video virus. Kevin falls asleep, and inside Kevin's body, his life force does battle with Viroid. Because Kevin isn't from Videoland, his body doesn't know how to fight off the video virus. Lana sends out a message to all of Videoland begging people to contact her if they can help. Lana decides, from a statement made by Simon, to fight the virus from inside Kevin's body. Dr. Right gives Lana a map of Kevin's body and a videocom to contact him. Kid Icarus uses his special shrinking arrow to make Lana, Simon, Mega Man, and himself small enough. They enter Kevin's body through his right ear, but miss the shortest route to his heart, which is where Viroid has established his stronghold. They end up in the stomach, and Simon lands in Kevin's gum! Meanwhile, Viroid has sent stomach acid into Kevin's stomach, so Lana and the others will be digested. Mega Man chews some of Kevin's gum and blows it big enough to lift them out of the stomach. Lana drops the videocom, however. Viroid, upset, has the Fat Cells attack. Meanwhile, Dr. Right receives a call from King Melvis of Faxanadu. There is a magic elixir that is said to cure all evil. It was stolen long ago by the dwarves. Duke and Gameboy go to Faxanadu to find it. Lana and the others give the Fat Cells a workout, and they run out of fat and leave. Viroid has the Germ Squad released. They capture the N Team and bring them to Viroid. They convince Viroid (and Kevin) that they've given up the rescue attempt, and only want to save themselves. Convinced, Viroid lets them go. Then, the N Team returns. Lana rescues Kevin's lifeforce, and the rest of them defeat the Germ Squad. Viroid fires at Lana, but she deflects the blast with Simon's mirror. Viroid is destroyed, but the effects of the shrinking arrow begin to wear off, so the N Team is forced to leave Kevin's body. Kevin assures them that they'll always be his Videoland family. Meanwhile, Gameboy and Duke find the elixir and bring it back to the Palace. Kevin sneezed the N Team out of his body, and they grow back to full size. Dr. Right hooks up the elixir to Gameboy and Kevin. They need to input Kevin's Magic Mantra in order to use the elixir, but no one knows it because they never had to use it before. Lana thinks she knows it and types in the word FAMILY. Kevin's life force is restored to full, and he wakes up. Everyone cheers. Kevin had no idea what's going on and thinks he had a weird dream. Then he sneezes out one of the feathers from Simon's coat and says: "At least, I think it was a dream!"

When Mother Brain Rules
No writing credit given
Teaser song: ?
Featured song: none
This is basically just a compilation of different episodes, showing scenes while the narrator and Simon comment on them. At first, Simon says they don't need Kevin. Simon claims he can lead the N Team himself. Then, towards the end of the episode, Simon finally admits that they do need Kevin.

There were at least two different versions of this episode. The first I saw on NBC while the series was still on. All voices were removed from the scenes from the episodes, and new music and sound effects were added. The only two voices in the entire episode were that of Simon and the narrator. I didn't see the entire episode. The second version I saw on "Captain N & The Video Game Masters". It was basically the same, but this time the dialogue was left in, and only the music was changed. Did this second version also air on NBC? Please e-mail me and let me know!

Written by: Dorothy Middleton
Teaser song: ?
Featured song: none
Coming home from Dragon's Den, Kevin, Kid Icarus, and Duke stop off on the medieval world of Nottingham to fill up the Warp Wagon. Kid Icarus goes into a weapons shop to buy a new string for his bow. Him, Kevin, and Duke prevent the Sheriff and Prince John from robbing the place, and defeat the Sheriff's soldiers, as well - with a little help from Robin Hood. Robin passes out the gold that was stolen to the poor. Kid Icarus is made fun of by Little John and Friar Tuck for looking like a fairy. Kid Icarus bets that he can outshoot them all, and intends to prove it at the Archery Tournament that afternoon. The winner gets a golden arrow, and Robin decides to enter as well. Meanwhile, Maid Marian, a prisoner of the Sheriff and Prince John, overhears them plotting to capture Robin at the tournament. They believe that even if he comes in disguise, whoever wins must be Robin. At the tournament, Prince John sits on the throne, disguised as Maid Marian. Kid Icarus and the Sheriff are the final two contestants. Kid Icarus hits the bulls-eye, but the Sheriff steals his buzzsaw arrow, gets a bullseye, splitting Kid Icarus' arrow in half, and wins the tournament. When Robin goes up to "Maid Marian" and asks for the prize and a kiss, Prince John reveals himself and has his guards seize Robin. Kevin jumps to his rescue, but the Sheriff points out Maid Marian, standing on the balcony of the tower where she's being held, and demands that everyone at the tournament surrenders to him. Robin offers himself in exchange for Marian. Marian cries out in protest and falls off the balcony. Kid Icarus grabs the golden arrow and shoots Maid Marian. The arrow forms a bubble around her, and she floats safely down into Robin's arms, much to the Sheriff's annoyance. Later on, Kid Icarus is officially inducted into the Merry Men, and becomes known as Archer Icarus.

Kevin says after he'll wish Lana's father home for her. Lana has been practicing to take a shot herself, but she accidentally hits Duke with her basketball, who gets dizzy! Kevin is surprised and excited when Larry Bird shows up for the contest. There is a boy named Hoopless that is short, so he can't play basketball, like everyone else, but he's a brilliant scientist who invented everything on Hoopland. He activates his new robot, Rebound, in his laboratory. Rebound is trying to make a shot, but he jumps too high and hits his head on the ceiling. His eyes turn from yellow to red, and he becomes evil. Hoopless corrects it, and then he and Rebound go outside. Hoopless wants Rebound to jump, sink the ball in the magic hoop, and then wish him tall like everyone else. Larry, Kevin, and Lana are about to throw their basketballs in the hoop, but Rebound beats them to it. The robot messes up the wish, however, and wished himself tall! He grows taller than a building, and his head hits a girder, turning him evil again. Hoopless begs Kevin to stop Rebound. Kevin wants to shoot Rebound, but Hoopless begs him not to. In order to stop Rebound, Kevin and the others go to Hoop Mountain to find the magic hoop and make another wish. First they have to sink a basketball into a hoop on the other side of a canyon that's forty feet across. Kevin throws his ball, which is about to fall into the canyon, but Larry throws his ball, which hits Kevin's and pushes the Game Master's ball up and through the hoop. A warp bridge opens, and they end up inside Hoop Mountain. Clockman, the guardian of the magic hoop, throws different challenges at them that they have to beat if they wanna get to the magic hoop. First they have to sink a basketball through a hoop while avoiding hoop-shooting bats that multiply when shot. Larry finally sinks Lana's basketball through the hoop. Their next challenge is to face the Hole Thing, a creature that shoots holes, and sink the ball again. Duke, who sniffs a hole, accidentally falls in. Hoopless also falls in, too, but Kevin saves him. Once again, Larry scores. Kevin promises Duke he'll come back for him. Next they have to pick one of two hoops that are offered. One leads to the magic hoop. Kevin suggests tossing a coin to decide, but Larry tries the hoop on the right. A bubble forms around him, trapping him inside. Kevin and the others use the hoop on the left and go to the magic hoop. Kevin throws the ball, but a shield forms around the magic hoop, and the ball bounces off and back at them. Kevin runs up to the hoop and gets trapped inside the shield. Lana takes a shot and sinks the ball through the hoop. Clockman begins to cry because he always wins. Kevin is freed, and Larry and Duke come through a warp and join them. Kevin hugs Lana and lifts her up. He says if Lana wishes her father back home, he'll understand. But Lana says she wouldn't, and neither would her father. She wishes Rebound back to normal. Hoopless apologizes for causing so much trouble, but Larry says it's the people of Hoopland who should apologize to Hoopless for taking him for granted. Hoopless and Rebound hug, and Kevin and Lana smile, thinking it's adorable.

Return To Castlevania

Kevin and Simon go to Castlevania to attend The Simon Belmont Awards, where Simon is going to be honored for being a hero like his great-grandfather, Trevor Belmont. The Poltergeist King appears on stage, where Simon expects to be presented with the weapons his ancestor made famous. Instead, the King calls Trevor a coward, and accuses him of stealing the credit after the King defeated the Count. He curses the Belmont family with a thousand years of shame. He then disappears, taking the weapons with him. The audience begins booing Simon and throwing food at him. Simon escapes by running into a warp. It turns out that the Count was impersonating the King. With Simon no longer considered a hero, the Count could easily take over Castlevania. Igor, a small winged creature sitting on top of the King's staff, warns the Count that the real Poltergeist King was escaping from the tower where he was being held captive. He was climbing down a bedsheet. The Count flies up and uses the King's magic staff to set the "rope" on fire. The King climbs back up to the window he came out of. Alucard, the Count's son, comes by on his bat-shaped skateboard to show his dad a new trick. The Count is mad at Alucard, because he was supposed to be watching the King. He tells his son to get out of his castle. After looking for Simon in every dungeon in town, Kevin finds Simon in the graveyard on the other side of Castlevania. Simon was at Trevor's grave. It's the only place he dared show his face. He sits on another grave and awakens an old wizard from his sleep, who at first mistakes Simon for Trevor. He says a braver man never lived, and that he helped Trevor defeat the Count 100 years ago. Kevin says they have to find the Poltergeist King and hear the whole story. The old wizard accidentally casts the wrong spell and brings a Skull Knight to life! Simon is too upset to notice it, however. Kevin zaps it, and one of the horns bonks the wizard on the head, causing him to remember a spell. He freezes the Skull Knight, which crumbles. Simon then turns around to see what's going on. The Count is watching all of this using a ring. When Simon, Kevin, and the old wizard warp into the Poltergeist King's cave, the "King" is outraged at Simon's presence. Kevin fires at a spike, and water comes gushing out. The Count then turns back into his true form. He sends spikes down from the ceiling, his "Belmont Bashers", to crush them, and then leaves. The old wizard again chants the wrong spell, warping himself out of there. Then Alucard comes by, destroys the spikes, introduces himself, and insists that he's on their side. The Count is hiding, hearing all of this, and can't believes his own son's a traitor. When Simon, Alucard, and Kevin warp into the Count's room, the Count warps there as well. During the battle, Alucard helps his dad. Simon knocks the magic staff out of the Count's hand. The Count goes to get it, while Alucard holds Kevin and Simon off. Simon swings towards the Count using his whip, and knocks him away before he can get the staff. Kevin takes care of Alucard. Later, at The Simon Belmont Awards, the audience is falling asleep (the Poltergeist King is already asleep) from Simon's long, boring speech as he accepts Trevor's weapons. The old wizard casts a spell, tying Simon up with bandages like a mummy so he can't talk. Kevin and the audience crack up laughing.

The Fractured Fantasy of Captain N

Featured song: "Together"
Kevin, Lana, Mega Man, and Kid Icarus visit the medieval world of Final Fantasy to have lunch with Lana's friend, the Prince - something Kevin is not looking forward to! They hear a cry for help, and a man tells them his magic shop was just robbed. He knows Astost, a man they don't wanna know, is behind this. A warp opens, and a witch flies out on her broom. She flies into Kid Icarus, and they both crash to the ground. When Kevin asks if he can help her, she reads off her shopping list. Lana says they better hurry to the Prince's castle, but Kevin would rather be fighting crooks. A man is hiding behind a tree and hears that Captain N is visiting the Prince. Kevin is tired of hearing about the Prince's battles, and goes into another room to get something to drink. The man is there, and he says that Kevin could be better than the Prince. The man casts a spell on Kevin, and tells him to put a sleeping potion in the Prince's drink. Kevin does it, and the Prince falls asleep - right in his soup! Mega Man finds out Kevin's under a magic spell, but doesn't know how. A warp opens, and the man is standing there. Kevin joins him, and the warp closes. Lana and the others warp to where the witch lives, and land in quicksand. Lana takes in a mouthful and has to spit it out! Kid Icarus uses his rope arrow to get them out, but then the witch finds them and tells them not to move. Lana introduces herself, and the witch turns her into a statue. Then the witch recognizes Mega Man and Kid Icarus, and she turns Lana back to normal. After learning about the spell placed on Kevin, the witch says that the light crystal would break it. Anyone that looked through it would see people for who they really are. But Astost stole the crystal from her years ago. Lana says they have to sneak into his castle. At Astost's castle, Kevin is training the warriors. Mega Man and Kid Icarus hide in a suit of armor and pretend to be a warrior looking to join the army. They keep Astost busy while Lana sneaks into the castle. Astost takes the new warrior into the room with the light crystal to guard it. Mega Man and Kid Icarus fall over, however, and are discovered. Kid Icarus grabs the crystal, and they start throwing it. A guard catches it - and the guard turns out to be Lana. Lana activates the crystal, and the spell on Kevin is broken. Astost is revealed to be a horrible monster. Kevin's wondering what's going on, and they get out of the castle. At the Prince's castle, the witch gives the Prince a potion to wake him up, and the Prince is unaware that anything happened, asking what's for dessert. Kevin says he's learned his lesson, and Lana kisses him on the cheek.

I can't say that the information in this episode guide is accurate. I need the original air order and original air dates for all of the episodes from a verifiable source (meaning old VHS tapes) and other information.
