Video Power Featuring William Novak and the Power Glove

Video Power debut on national TV in the early 1990s. Video Power was a TV show devoted to video games that went through a couple incarnations.

In the first season, Johnny Arcade would make his grand appearance skateboarding onto the Video Power show set and then would flick on a power switch to create VIDEO POWER!

Johnny would give reviews on some game titles to watch out for and then The Power Team which was primarily a cartoon show starring characters from Arcade/NES games by distributor Acclaim: Kuros from Wizards & Warriors, Kwirk: The Chilled Tomato, Bigfoot Monster Truck, and a character from Archrivials. After the cartoon you'd get a couple more reviews and then it was GAME OVER!

In this clip, Johnny Arcade features one of designers of the Power Glove - William Novak. Mr. Novak shows how the Power Glove functions and a few tips on how to play a Power Glove game entitled Gloveball.
