1. Original air dates for the Captain N episodes. I need to know when each Captain N episode first aired. For the episodes "HOW'S BAYOU" and "WHEN MOTHER BRAIN RULES", I would like to know the original air dates for both versions of the episodes. If anyone has any original air dates, please e-mail me a list of the episodes and original air dates.
2. Original air dates for The Legend of Zelda episodes. I need to know when each Zelda episode first aired. I know they were on Fridays on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show, but that's the extent of my knowledge about it. If anyone has any original air dates, please e-mail me a list of the episodes and original air dates.
3. I need to know if I have every Captain N episode listed in the Episode Guide. I would hate to think I don't have all of them. Still, I need to know. If you can confirm that I have every episode, then please e-mail me. If you know of any episodes that I don't have listed, then please e-mail me a list with the names of the episodes I don't have, and a summary, if you have one.
4. Comic Book Issue Summaries. I desperately need these. Please take a look in the following sections for any story or issue summaries I don't have:
The Legend of Zelda
Captain N: The Game Master
Nintendo Comics System
The Best of the Nintendo Comics System
Stories In Other Issues
Please supply any and all missing information you may have. Please use the exact capitalization for each story, as it appears in the issue. Please give the writers' names. And give a summary of each story. Also, in the list you send me, please write down each story title in the order the stories appear in each issue. And please give the month and year of each issue. You can e-mail the summaries to me here. Thank you.
5. Comic Book Issue Scans. I cannot stress how important it is that you do this. The comic books don't last forever. They can tear, fade, etc... You need to scan the comic books to preserve them. I beg you, if you have a scanner, or access to one, then please scan all the issues you own.
I also need the scans to read the stories, seeing as I don't have all of issues of the comic books. The following is a list of stories (both scans and on paper) that I dohave:

If you have any stories, advertisements, or covers I don't have, then please scan them and send them to me.
This is how I would like the scans done:
Scan the entire issue, including the front cover, and every page with a story on it. This also includes the short one and two page stories. And the advertisement for the next issue.
Scan all the pages at 100% size. Do not reduce the size so that the picture will fit on screen or whatever. Please scan them at 100% size. This is so that the stories will be readable. If you decrease the size, the print will be smaller and harder to read.
Scan the issues in color. If you have a black and white scanner, then scan in black and white, but if you have a color scanner, please scan in color. JPEG files are preferred.
Please e-mail me ahead of time telling me you plan on sending me comic book scans. Captain N, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and Punch-Out stories are all I want. Don't bother with Mario (I don't have anything against him, it's just that he's not what this site is about). Don't forget to check your Mario issues for other stories, such as Captain N, Zelda, Metroid, or Punch-Out, though! Once you get my reply, you can start e-mailing the scans to me.
6. The comic books apparently had reprints, where some covers or stories were swapped between different issues. If anyone has any info on reprints, please e-mail me about it.
7. I heard that Captain N, Volume 1, Issue # 5 has an advertisement for Issue # 6, but that # 6 never came out. Can someone please e-mail me a scan of this ad and tell me whether or not # 6 actually came out?
8. Someone told me that he saw an ad for Issue # 7 of Captain N, where it showed that Kevin had apparently joined Samus as a bounty hunter. Can someone please e-mail me a scan of this ad (if it exists)?
9. Lioness998 had a Nintendo Power pencil pack that had a picture of Mario, Princess Toadstool, and Captain N on it. If anyone has one, please scan the picture and e-mail it to me!
10. Melanie has informed me that years back, Kellogg's Froot Loops had some Mario and Captain N stickers packaged in the box. If anyone has these, please find a scanner and scan them for me! They must be very rare! Please scan them and e-mail them to me!
11. Quinton Buckley has informed me that, back when Captain N was fairly new, Toys 'R' Us had a weekly 'contest' where, if you wrote down the phrase shown during commercials, you could go to your nearby store and pick up some cheesy trinket. Some of these were Captain N-related, while others had to do with Kid N Play, Camp Candy, Mario, etc... If anyone still has these things, please e-mail me!
12. Mandi Paugh informed me that she heard that Simon's pilot look in the cartoon was a joke off some staff member. Also, she thinks the reason Mega Man was drawn green was because, when they were copying his image from the game, they had the tint adjusted wrong on the TV set. Can anyone that worked on the TV series verify this?
That's all I need for now, that I can think of. I will give credit to everyone that sends me what I've asked for here. Thank you.
