I'll admit, when I read the subject of this post, I was thinking of the show, "Happy Days" (you know, used to see it on Nick at Nite...?) and I now have the theme song stuck in my head. Not that that's a bad thing, of course. But, yay! for Super Mario Brothers 3! And Darkwing Duck! When I return from whatever foreign country I'm in now (I've lost track!), we NEED to watch those. Which means you NEED to buy them.... I envy your ability to buy DVDs at the moment. I need to rely on things such as YouTube. Ciao!

I actually bought some cereal in 2004 to get the Super Mario 3 DVD that was inside. So I watched it, and noticed all the weird things about it that I hadn't when I was younger.

-Luigi turns into Mario in one of the scenes and has the wrong voice.
-Koopa's wand changes color
-Piranha plant changes appearance when biting Mario (loses its yellow)
-The Koopa Kids have different names than in SMB3 or World.
-A rip-off of a then popular group did a dance.

If I recall correctly, they made 13 episodes before moving on to World (1990-91), which ran for two seasons- 26 episodes (1991-92 and 1992-93), before Super Mario, along with almost all Nintendo programming, disappeared from the airwaves in the fall of 1993.
Comic Genesis Comic Cookout VIII was July 30th, 2011 (over a year ago!) in NYC. Want to host/plan Comic Cookout IX in summer (fall?) 2013? Feel free to drop me a PM.

Oh those little screw ups and rip offs was what made watching those cartoons back then so much fun. The other day a few of my friends were watching old episodes of Darkwing Duck and Duck Tales, and had fun pointing out the facts that the colorists were being a bit indecisive regarding one female extra, changing her from brown to purple every 3 minutes or so. There were also plenty of subtle adult jokes. Awesome.

By the way, welcome to the G'nerds2000 forum DK.
