  • This is one of the first episodes of "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show". It is actually the first one to be shown.

  • Despite the clumsy animation, this episode manages to be decent enough.

    • Koopa: (after being defeated) Drat! You faucet-freaks have foiled my plans again! Mario: That's the way the meatball bounces! Koopa: Then as the old saying goes, he who koops and runs away lives to koop another day!

    • Beezo: Beezos away!

    • Koopa: So, Mario thinks HE'S king, huh? There's only one king of Cramalot! And who is that? Troopa: Uhh, can ya give me a hint? Koopa: He's sitting right here on this throne!

    Notes (14)

    • Sole appearance of Mervin, the accident-prone Magician, who is an obvious spoof of Merlin the Magician.

    • This episode marks the first time Mario becomes Super Mario without the use of a power up from the games.

    • In the original version of this episode, right after Luigi slams right into the Cramalot Castle door, the scene dissolves to the next scene in the throne room. But in the version featured on Yahooligans! and the DVD, the dissolve effect is replaced by the previous scene fading to black and the following scene fading in.

    • Minions that appear: Beezo, Troopa, Paratroopa and Trouter.

    • This episode marks the first time that Koopa uses a warp zone to escape.

    Trivia (21)

    • This is the only episode on the Super Mario Bros. Super Show DVD set to not have the commercial bumpers or the Legend of Zelda preview on the disc as well has being the only episode on the disc to show the live action segment in a choppy motion instead of a smooth motion like the other episodes on the set.

    • Throughout the dungeon scene, the ceiling keeps getting lower and lower. However, when Mervin teleports the group out of the dungeon, the ceiling is higher than it should be.

    • When Princess says "If only Mervin were here!", the "M" emblem on Mario's cap is missing.

    • This one is hard to notice, but shortly after Mervin hits the Troopa with his staff, Mario nearly jabs Koopa with Excalibur. When Koopa shouts "Whoah!", Mario's sleeve is blue, even though it should be red, as he's Super.

    • When Mario and Koopa start fighting with the plunger and Excalibur, Koopa's tail is the wrong shade of green in one shot.
