29. Captain N: The Game Master (NBC, 1989-1991)
The Japanese video game giant hit brainwashing marketing gold with this Saturday morning adventure that featured Nintendo references galore. After average teen Kevin (a.k.a. Captain N) gets sucked into his TV, he's forced to save "Videoland" with his Duck Hunt zapper and the N-Team, his all-star squad that features NES favorites like Mega Man and Kid Icarus.
But, hands down, the most memorable character was the diabolical villainess Mother Brain, the terrifying giant talking organ from Metroid who's behind Videoland's destruction. Seriously, she wore lipstick and talked like Little Richard. Scary shit.
