In a 1950s inspired world set in the town of Q*Berg, a teenage fur-covered creature named Q*bert, his girlfriend Q*Tee, his brother Q*Bit, and his friends Q*Ball, Q*Val must deal with the resident bullies Coily, Ugg and Wrongway, and Coily’s girlfriend Viper. As with the video game, the segment features “block-hopping” scenes, “swearing” bubbles and occasional flying discs from the original game. New to the cartoon was Q*bert’s use of “slippy-doos”, a black ball projectile which he loaded and fired through his nose, producing an oil slick wherever the balls splattered.
Qbert is one of the cartoons of a whole series of classic arcade cartoons like Donkey Kong JR, Frogger, Pitfall to name a few of the list originall it had 2 seasons with 26 episodes if you count them all.
These cartoons where inspired by it’s famous games of those years from Atari and nintendo.
