You Know You're Suffering From Captain N Withdrawal When.... still have your original NES and occasionally play Punch-Out just in case. When you beat it, you throw a fit because the Ultimate Warp Zone didn't open.

...your favorite way of annoying people is putting "-icus" after every third word you say.

...when watching a rerun of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" about Data trying to be human, you shout "The heck with it, just take him to the Warp of Life already!" make your own Power Pad and Zapper and go around "zapping" people you don't like.

...when on vacation in California, you buy every road map you can find and study them extensively to figure out how to get to Northridge. can remember a time when everyone's favorite TV couple was Kevin and Winnie--yours was Kevin and Lana.'ve been practicing with a whip for months, but for some reason you can't seem to get it to fetch yet. name your hamsters aftr N Team members. get all excited when you hear someone yelling "Duke! Duke, come back here!"

...when you watch Sliders, even reruns, every time they open the wormhole, you secretly hope they'll wind up in Videoland on one trip.

...for Halloween, you've gone as Kevin / Lana for eight years straight. dig up your old cartridge of Metroid and spend hours trying to beat it again just to see how much the cartoon messed up Mother Brain (like they did Simon).

...your professor/teacher decides to make you play a game. Your team is losing, you declare anarchy because the rules are stacked against you, and to restore order he yells "I'm the game master! I make the rules!" Your response: "Forget it, Captain N, this is a revolution!" spend your time in your pointless Honors class writing Captain N lists like this one.'re working full-time, have a "real job", and yet when you feel compelled to take a five-minute break you check out the Season 4 ep you forgot to read last week.

...instead of a car, you wish you had your own Warp Wagon to get home without dealing with traffic. remember which block to turn right on to get to a friend's house only because the name of the street is "Belmont Avenue"!

...during flu season, you go around telling people you have a video virus. spend more time working on CN fanfic than you do on your papers.

You Know You Suffer From Captain N Withdrawal When....

1. You hear that the show's coming back, even start seeing a new episode, and you're all psyched about it, only to wake up and realize it was a dream. It happened to me last night!

2. You visit an arcade and (silently) blast the arcade operator when you find out that Punch-Out!! and some other games are not in the room anymore.

3. You get pissed at people who don't remember Captain N when you ask them about the show.

4. You are playing a multi-player game (say Quake II) with some people, and you wonder what would happen if all of you were sucked into Videoland through that game.

5. You are writing an episode for a fan-written season of Captain N.

6. As you watch the New Addams Family, you guess that, if they watched Captain N, they would say "Poor Mother Brain!" and have a heated debate with you for hours.

7. You get all psyched up when you hear the word "Captain".

8. You are more interested in playing games than doing homework.

9. You play an arcade game, and you imagine a Captain N version of the game, even including the fan-written seasons.

10. You visit another country, and you wonder if Captain N is showing there.

If you've got a joke that's somehow related to Captain N, then e-mail me! If it's good, I'll put it up!
