Blogging live to you and yours! It’s your boy TWOTALL4UFOOL! So I wanted to have a little fun with this post. I have fun with all the posts I write but I’m excited about this one because I’m going bring you nostalgia with ‘Do You Remember?’ posts on this blog at least once a month. Think of it as a trip down memory lane. I’ve been called by some as the Nostalgia King, and I feel by doing this it’ll a great way to mix it up for you guys. So what better way to reminisce on the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. Originally I wanted to do something else as my first post for ‘Do You Remember?’, but I figured I’ll keep it simple. And plus Mario is in the category of video games. The next one I do however will be something completely different.
So after joking around about this show with a friend not too long ago I decided to kick back and watch a few episodes. Looking back I can’t believe that we kids of the late 80’s/early 90’s liked this show. But still I find it more entertaining than that Super Mario Bros. movie. But let’s not talk about that. The show is pretty much like the video game. King Koopa (or Bowser) kidnaps Princess Toadstool (now Princess Peach), and Mario, Luigi, and Toad have to go save her. It seems that this show is mixture of the first and second video games because besides King Koopa you also have Mouser, and Birdo as villains. There are also references to the second game such as some of the level scenery and enemies on the show. And you also see them ride on magic carpets. If you’ve played Mario 2 you’ll know what I am talking. A couple things I got from watching this cartoon is that I was reminded of the fact that they are plumbers from Brooklyn, they both love Italian food (as they are italian), and Luigi was a coward back then apparently as well. Luigi just gets no love it seems like.
In addition to the adventure part of the show the beginning and end of the show would be a live segment. It would feature the Mario Bros. at their place with a guest star usually. The episodes I saw featured Nicole Eggert (Charles In Charge), and Sgt. Slaughter (WWE). It was kind of funny with those costumes that those guys wore. You can find better Mario Bros. costumes today. And they also played previews from the Legend of Zelda cartoons that also aired during that time. This wasn’t my favorite cartoon show growing up and honestly I don’t remember watching it all that much because I believe it aired on the Family Channel if I’m not mistaken. I didn’t watch that channel all that much. But looking back it was in the more comedic category of cartoons if you ask me. I mean it was animated by DIC who also did Heathcliff, and my personal favorite Inspector Gadget. There were more Mario shows that came after this. The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, and Super Mario World. Yes they were based off the video games. I was surprised they never did a Super Mario 64 animated series. LOL! Maybe if this new upcoming announced Mario movie is a hit then we’ll see a series based off of Super Mario Odyssey.
So if you are interested in checking out this show it is on Netflix. Just type in Mario and you’ll find it pretty easily. I’m sure you can also find it on YouTube if you don’t have Netflix. Anyway I just wanted to throw something different at you guys. Hopefully you all enjoyed this post and got a laugh out of it. What do you guys think? Want me to do more ‘Do You Remember?’ posts.

I only vaguely remember this show because I didn’t discover it until I was older and by that time I didn’t really watch it. But from what I’ve seen of it, it’s fantastic. Totally dated, but I think it’s awesome. This and the Zelda show as well. That one I have on DVD and have watched a few times.

Looking back I was surprised DIC never kept the series going. Or another animation company picking it up later on. If video game franchises such as Kirby and Sonic had their own TV series why not Mario? But I am happy that they are going to make a new Mario movie. I think it’s very long overdue and hopefully it’s good to the point that we can forget the 1993 Mario film ever existed. 😂😂😂😂😂
I love the 1993 movie. It’s awful, yes, but I love watching it for the nostalgia because I loved it as a kid, lol.
