The Legend of Zelda was a cartoon aired on Fridays in 1989 as part of the Super Mario Bros Super Show. Each episode was about 15 to 20 minutes long and TLoZ only lasted 13 episodes. It was later canceled due to lack of interest in the Super Mario Bros Super Show. The show was later rebroadcasted with Captain-N in 1993. They showed two episodes of TLoZ per show instead of one. But this meant that the show had to be edited and shortened. Captain-N also did not last very long and was soon canceled as well.
