  • First appearance of Link and Zelda on Captain N, as well as their first meeting with Kevin/Captain N himself. They looked similar to their counterparts in The Legend of Zelda cartoon from The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! and have the same voice actors.

Variants and alterations[]

  • For Season 3, the episode was cut and aired as a two-parter. No footage was cut from the episode; however, some music was changed around and some "To Be Continued" dialogue was added to the end of the first half, as well as a "flashback" to "Part One" at the beginning of the second half.
  • This split episode was turned into a half-hour episode, removing the "To Be Continued" dialogue at the end and the opening flashback, and was shown at least once in a rerun and was released on VHS home video in 1994. However, the predominant version was the "normal" version in both syndication, VHS, and DVD.
