Get a review of the first Majesco GBA Video pak - the Nicktoons Collection Volume 1 with SpongeBob SquarePants, The Fairly OddParents, All Grown Up and more for your Nintendo GBA!

Your fave cartoon characters just shrunk down to the size of a dime! Don't worry, it's not an evil genius at work, it's Majesco's Gameboy Advance Video and it puts animated peeps like SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, Fairly OddParents and more onto the GBA. Each cartridge comes with three 15-minute episodes, for a total of 45 minutes of video, and the first one to drop is the Nicktoons Collection Volume 1 with these cartoon episodes for your GBA:

Nicktoons Collection Volume 1 Cartoons:

  • All Grown Up: Chuckie's In Love
  • SpongeBob SquarePants: Pizza Delivery
  • The Fairly OddParents: The Big Problem

    Now, check out the good and the bad for the GBA Video and whether this crazy concept rules or drools.

    Majesco GBA Video - Nicktoons Collection Volume 1 The Good

    The good news starts with how easy it is to use. All you have to do to watch the cartoons is stick the GBA Video cartridge in your GBA and turn it on. They load up and you can choose the episode you want to watch. There are also controls to fast-forward, rewind, skip to chapters, brighten the screen and more. It's wicked!

    The bad news is that cramming 45 minutes of cartoons into a tiny cartridge and onto a small screen leaves them a lil' splotchy. They're still totally watchable, but not perfect. The biggest problem though is the sound - a GBA can't crank it up very loud so unless you have headphones there's no way to hear the cartoons unless it's really quiet.

    They're cheap, easy and fun. All you need is to plug the headphones from your discman into your GBA and you're laughing.

    Nicktoons Collection Volume 1 Age Rating: Everyone.

    Nicktoons Collection Volume 1 Thumbs Up:

  • Only $20 for a cartridge with three episodes.
  • Adjustable brightness so it looks good on an older GBA.
  • No need for extra hardware, just plug it in and watch!
  • You can fast-forward, rewind, pause and more.

    Nicktoons Collection Volume 1 Thumbs Down:

  • The videos have some small splotches.
  • The sound is way too quiet without headphones.
