  • OH, I get it! So I should avoid the fairy in the lake because she'll kill me with water monsters. Clearly they played the game, otherwise I would have thought she would heal my wounds. *SARCASM*moreless

    Well, thank you Bob Forward, for such a pointless, terribly written episode with historical inaccuracies, bad animation, stupid lines, plot holes as big and deep as the grand canyon and further proof that the Triforces of this show are totally useless plot devices. Clearly this episode was made with further proof nobody at DIC knew anything about The Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Entertainmen System. Who needs an actual adventure like in the game, when you can have a whole episode dedicated to a mediocre problem in a mediocre kingdom? The next time Zelda loses her teddy bear, Link misplaces his sock or the king's pizza isn't on time, be sure to have another pointless adventure dedicated to it.moreless
