Top 10 TV Shows Based On Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

After awhile a stopped watching it, it was boring and not enough action, then I started watching Mario and what not - myusernameisthis

I liked it up until the 4kids voice actors left. I didn't like the change in voice actors. It started getting better eventually, but Team Rocket still has terrible voice actors (especially Meowth, his voice is so irritating.). Black and White was awful, but X & Y managed to bring me back to the show. Then the Alolan stuff happened and I hated everything about it. I don't like any of the characters from that region. I miss Ash's old companions (except for Iris and Cilan). - Smash64

Possibly one of the greatest animated shows of all time

Not really that good, targeted towards 7yo's it seems. repetitive and cliche - EliHbk

2 Earthworm Jim

Possibly the most underrated cartoon of all time. - xandermartin98

3 Kirby Right Back At Ya

No this cartoon was horrible! you get bored about 5 minutes into the first episode! - myusernameisthis

I take that back actually, but I only watch the Japanese version. - myusernameisthis

My favorite video game anime. - Smash64

So many memories of watching this show. It also had some really good life lessons for kids and was still action-packed and funny. Hopefully all of the episodes get released on DVD someday.

I liked it, but it's not near as good as the games. Plus, a lot of the characters are portrayed inaccurately. Especially King Dedede, since he's an absolute sadist in this show. - Garythesnail

I agree about King Dedede, but I liked how the anime portrayed Meta Knight and Chef Kawasaki. - Smash64

4 Sonic Sat AM

Nostalgic and good. - myusernameisthis

5 The Super Mario Bros. Super Show The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! is an American television series, conceived by Andy Heyward, produced by DIC Animation City, and distributed by Viacom Enterprises in association with Nintendo, airing during 1989 from 4 September to 1 December.

Theme song stuck in my head.

6 Castlevania
7 Megaman
8 Super Mario World Super Mario World is an American animated musical comedy television series loosely based on the Super NES video game of the same name.

I watched this show, it was actually entertainingly mediocre. I could watch this all day! - EliHbk

One of the first Video Game Based shows. Still one of the best.

9 F-Zero: GP Legend

I only watch anime dubs, so I'm hoping there's another dub coming, because there is no way I'm watching the 4Kids dub. - Smash64

Also a great show...
aside from the English dub, that is - xandermartin98

10 Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, also known as Pac-World, is an American/Japanese/Canadian computer-animated comedy-adventure television series featuring Namco's classic video game character Pac-Man.

This was ok - EliHbk

The Contenders

11 Sonic X Sonic X is a Japanese anime television series created by TMS Entertainment and based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series published by Sega.

Aside from Chris and Cream, great show. I'd like to see a reboot with Silver, Blaze, and Mighty in it. - Smash64

Great show, needs a game for it, and a reboot.

12 Donkey Kong Country Donkey Kong Country is a Canadian/French computer-animated television series. It is based on the Nintendo franchise Donkey Kong as portrayed in the Donkey Kong Country video game series by Nintendo and Rare.
13 The Adventures of Super Mario Bros 3

This one is better than SMBSS and Super Mario World. Great storylines, great songs, and everything. Oh and Ludwig has the most iconic laugh in the Mario franchise. - asantalo

14 Viva Pinata
15 The Legend Of Zelda

Hey! Excuse me, princess! - Nirocart

16 Sonic Boom Sonic Boom is a computer-animated television series, produced by Sega of America, Inc. and Technicolor Animation Productions in collaboration with Lagardère Thématiques and Jeunesse TV, respectively for Cartoon Network, Canal J, and Gulli.

It's awful. The voice acting is probably the worst thing about it (aside from Mike Pollock, he's amazing). Sticks was an unnecessary character, and she is so damn annoying. - Smash64

17 Bubsy Cartoon


18 The Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, usually abbreviated AoStH, is an animated series that was based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series.
19 Saturday Supercade

Divided into cartoon segments (Donkey Kong, Q*Bert, Frogger, Pitfall and Donkey Kong Junior). By the time season 2 aired, Donkey Kong and Q*Bert were joined by Space Ace (created by famed animator Don Bluth) and Kangaroo. Sadly, Saturday SuperCade was canceled due to the video game crash in 1983. Several years later, Mario came back to television alongside his brother Luigi in Super Mario Bros. Super Show but Donkey Kong had his own cartoon: Donkey Kong Country (based on a Super Nintendo game of the same name). - playstationfan66
