I apologise for the vague review, as I haven't seen this show in 20 years. I was about 4 then, but I still remember seeing it Saturday mornings. The thing that sticks out the most with this show is, of course, Donkey Kong. I used to laugh real hard at that. Surprised me to see it was voiced by Soupy Sales. Mario also made his television debut in this cartoon, but he didn't stick out as much as Donkey Kong. I remember there were lots of banananas and barrels being thrown around, and there was that pretty blonde girl, which, as it turns out, wasn't Mario's girlfriend, but his niece (perhaps Luigi's daughter?). Donkey Kong Junior didn't have as much of the wackiness, so I don't remember as much of it. The other ones I don't remember too much either. I remember enjoying the Q-bert cartoon. I used to hate the game, because i would always die (Donkey Kong was a bit simpler for a 4 year old to grasp), but the cartoon was funny. Frogger was a bit too advanced for me to grasp at the time, I think he was a writer or something. I'm not sure, but I remember a Pac-Man cartoon being part of this lineup, but didn't see it listed, so it was probably a separate show, that was another one I enjoyed watching a lot. It was very clever and funny. Various other fun video game cartoons included Pitfall and Dungeons and Dragons. I remember wanting being afraid of playing D&D after seeing that cartoon because I actually thought I would be sucked into the game world. Anyway, I'd like to see these cartoons again just to bring back some early child memories, and see what I think about them today. Either way, I remember enjoying these cartoons a lot when I was 4.
