Super Show!, airing on Fridays in the USA, replacing the usually aired Super Mario Bros. segment. The series was cancelled after thirteen episodes, which were later syndicated separately from their parent show.

The Legend of Zelda is one of the most iconic and respected series in videogames relatively short history, appearing at least once on every Nintendo console since the first installment twenty years ago. For a series with the reputation it has gained in that time, it has neither been the best selling game, nor even the most copied. Most speculation about the later is usually directed toward the complexity of the world/s of Hyrule and the varied nature of the series’ multi-themed dungeons.

In the videogame series the Triforce consisted of three mystic sacred triangles rather than the two that appear in this series. The third piece is the Triforce of Courage, in the series the three main characters represent Power (Gannon) Wisdom (Zelda) and Courage (Link).
