Q*bert – Your best new videogame buy for 1983!


For no good reason at all, I decided to type Q*bert into Google Images today. The image above jumped out at me, not because of the pretty cool silhouette but because of the “just announced Q*bert TV series coming this fall…”.

I don’t recall seeing Q*bert on TV so a visit to Youtube was in order. Moments later and I’m confronted with CBS’s Saturday Supercade and YES, a small section of that was in fact Q*bert!


Thanks to this find, I’m certain to be posting something about Saturday Supercade in the near future. Until then, let’s see Who’s Who and What’s What in Q*bert Land, shall we.

  1. I remember the q*bert cartoon fondly, though when I found clips on youtube, it didn’t stack up as well as I remembered. *shrug*

    Warner Archive announced a couple of years ago that they were planning to add Saturday Supercade to their selection of MOD (manufacture on demand) DVD titles. At the time, they said that due to issues with some of the rights, there will be some missing content. Most likely it has to do with Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. They didn’t go into specifics or set a release date, so hopefully they are still working on it.
