It's a good quiz, but if you're gonna put Battletoads ya better have Bubsy in there too.
Jun 27th, 2011 at 02:23 GMT
Ooh, I didn't know they made a Viewtiful Joe anime. I think I need to watch that!
Jun 27th, 2011 at 07:07 GMT
And I'm sure that not a single one of these TV series was a really bad idea.
Jun 27th, 2011 at 07:09 GMT
Fun quiz, really brought back some memories! How about Donkey Kong Country?
Jun 27th, 2011 at 15:43 GMT
Well excuuuuuuse me, princess!
Jun 27th, 2011 at 22:51 GMT
Had no idea Bomberman had animated show?!
Jun 28th, 2011 at 00:44 GMT
i didnt know mario or zelda was a tv series. i only knew pokemon, kirby, and sonic were.
Jun 29th, 2011 at 13:51 GMT
Um, exuuuuuse me, but that isn't the Mega Man TV series. That's "Mega Man Upon A Star", the OVA. This is the TV series that ran during the mid 90's: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ufVQIUEiYc

@UndeadChimp: Thanks for the correction ;)
Jun 29th, 2011 at 15:50 GMT
Kirby Right Back at Ya! has the best theme music ever! It's even on Donkey Konga for the gamecube.
Jun 29th, 2011 at 17:59 GMT
Q*Bert - LOVE IT!! Great images
Jun 29th, 2011 at 23:24 GMT
Great quiz! :D
Jun 30th, 2011 at 03:31 GMT
I did not realize Bomberman had a show either. I definitely have to track that down. Great quiz. I recommend a bonus answer of Captain N: The Game Master.
Jun 30th, 2011 at 04:06 GMT
Some of these shows range form awful(N Master), to Youtube fodder (Super Mario Bros), to quite decent (Kirby)
Jun 30th, 2011 at 15:57 GMT
I miss the old Carmen Sandiego shows...
Jun 30th, 2011 at 16:01 GMT
No problem, Brain.

Thanks for D2 and D4
Jul 3rd, 2011 at 23:37 GMT
Isn't it "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego"? I typed that and it wasn't accepted.
Jul 4th, 2011 at 17:12 GMT
There was a Parappa cartoon?
Jul 4th, 2011 at 22:58 GMT
Upvote this if you never got past the first level of Dragon's Lair.
Jul 7th, 2011 at 02:56 GMT
They had a pacman TV show?! My God, that's hilarious! Reminds me of the Robot Chicken movie trailer for Hungry Hungry Hippos! I think the only thing that could top it would be Tetris: The Animated Series!
Jul 8th, 2011 at 21:42 GMT
I loved Kirby of the Stars, Pokemon, and Sonic X. ^^ I kept putting Pit instead of Kid Icarus. I play too much SSB. XD
Jul 17th, 2011 at 01:23 GMT
I can't believe I missed Pacman! I kept thinking 'what video game is there where the main characters are pancakes?'
Jul 23rd, 2011 at 13:25 GMT
Carmen Sandiego was actually a series of games (Where in the World, Where in Time, ect). I found the lack of "Pole Position" disappointing, personally, but good quiz.
Jul 29th, 2011 at 05:40 GMT
I had no clue there was a devil may cry show...news 2 me...

Comment below threshold:
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 17:09 GMT
it's where in the world is Carmen Sandiego
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 17:10 GMT
WHAT Carmen Sandiego had a cartoon? I only knew of the gameshow but I was hard core into both the PC games and the gameshow! Where can I watch this series?
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 17:24 GMT
Sonic picture is of Sonic X, not Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 17:36 GMT
A Mortal Kombat kid's show just seems like a bad idea on so many levels...
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 17:50 GMT
Huh. I always thought it was, "Where on Earth is Carmen? San Diego?"
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 18:06 GMT
@bondquizace: They had a cartoon for the Rubik's Cube. http://www.rubiktheamazingcube.com/rtacshow.html
Also, only 1 in 5 got Dragon's Lair? No respect for video game or animation history...
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 18:13 GMT
Yay for including Dragon's Lair, but the pic is from the actual game, not the TV show. The TV show's animation was MUCH worse...
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 18:16 GMT
The instructions ask you to name the video games that inspired the show, yet the displayed answer is the name of the show itself? I know both are accepted, but maybe you should fix that.
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 18:20 GMT
Only 33% got Double Dragon?
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 18:22 GMT
I remember Pole Position having a Saturday morning cartoon in the 1980's. I love aging myself on this site.
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 18:29 GMT
After doing horribly on a quiz, I usually take comfort in having gotten the least guessed answer correct (Dragon's Lair in this case). Then I remember I only knew that particular answer because I'm an old fart. Sigh.
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 18:58 GMT
ahh yes Parappa the Rapper, I used to play that game a lot. it was fun.
Aug 23rd, 2012 at 19:08 GMT
I'd almost forgotten about the old Q*Bert cartoon. I watched it exactly once. My mom walked in the room and realized that the @! symbols coming out of his mouth were supposed to be swearing (don't think I got that), and forbid me from ever watching it again.
