Natalie Jones bought them at Wal-Mart at a price of 2 for $5.00. They came out on November 4, 1992. I found "GAMEBOY" at my local Walgreens on Tuesday, March 24, 1998, at around 3:00 PM for $3.00 plus tax!

In 1996, "Super Mario Bros. Super Christmas Adventures!" was released by DiC Toon-Time Video. At the end of "THE NIGHT BEFORE CAVE CHRISTMAS", the entire ending theme from "Captain N and the New Super Mario World" was shown! You see Kevin playing Nintendo and getting pulled into Videoland!

Warner Bros. distributes some episodes. I don't know which ones. Their phone number is (818) 954-6000.

"THE TROJAN DRAGON" and "HAVING A BALL" were also released on home video. Does anybody know who released them or have scans of the boxes? Please e-mail them to me! They came out on June 8, 1993.

Several Zelda episodes were released by Kids Klassics. "THE RINGER" and "SING FOR THE UNICORN" are each on separate tapes. "THE MISSING LINK", "COLD SPELLS", and "THE MOBLINS ARE REVOLTING" were released on one tape entitled "THE MISSING LINK". On the latter two tapes, the Zelda theme song was not included. I rented "THE RINGER" from a local video store on May 11, 1998, at 11:24 AM.

Does anybody have a scan of the back of "THE MISSING LINK" box or a larger scan of the front? Please e-mail them to me!

Now for the U.K. releases. Here's a page from a 1992 European Nintendo Catalog about the videos. These tapes are all presumably from Tempo Video.

The episodes released on each tape are:

"NIGHTMARE ON MOTHER BRAIN'S STREET" / "HOW'S BAYOU" (version 1?)
"DOPPELGANGER" / "FAIRIES IN THE SPRING" / "THE RINGER"

Does anybody know of more U.K. releases or have scans of the boxes not shown here? Please e-mail them to me!

Okay, here are all the places I can suggest to look for the videos: Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Kmart, Sears, Musicland, video rental places, flea markets, garage sales, yard sales, newsgroups, and online auctions.


If anyone can supply any information at all on the home video releases, please e-mail me!
