The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!

Show Summary

Welcome to The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! guide at

Cartoon Summary The Mario Bros.; Mario and Luigi, were two plumbers from Brooklyn. On one of their plumbing jobs, they were in the middle of unclogging a bathtub drainpipe. Without any warning, the drain suddenly pulled the brothers in, and warped them to the Mushroom Kingdom. Upon their arrival, they rescued Princess Peach Toadstool and Toad from King Bowser Koopa and his army. Although Princess Toadstool and Toad are now safe, the Koopas are still at large. On top of that, the warp zone leading to Brooklyn had closed. It's up to Mario and Luigi to not only liberate the Mushroom World from King Koopa, but to find a way back to Brooklyn.

Live Action Summary Set after the events of the Donkey Kong games, but prior to the events of the cartoon, this portion of the show shows us how Mario and Luigi used to live, running their plumbing shop in Brooklyn. Their friends include Radigator and Edison the Electrician, not to mention the many guest stars that come to visit.

Character Guide Mario Mario The main character, and unofficial leader of the heroes. Being a plumber, he can can do just about anything that involves plumbing, and he can use plumbing tools for a lot more than just plumbing! Mario also has a huge taste for Italian food. On this show, he and Luigi got sucked down a drain in Brookyln which took them to the Mushroom Kingdom, and now they have to find their way home. Luigi Mario Mario's younger brother. Although he tends to have a more cowardly attitude towards danger than Mario, he's probably the saner of the two. Unfortunately for Luigi, the others tend to treat him like a fall boy, causing him to end up doing a lot of dirty work. Like his bro, he's a plumbing pro, and he has a fondness for Italian cuisine. Princess Peach Toadstool She's the ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom, which has been taken over by the Koopas. She's also the most reasonable thinker of the group. She and the Marios have to find a way to stop the Koopas so she can reclaim her kingdom. NOTE: On the cartoons, she was never called Peach, so the guide will usually refer to her as Princess or sometimes Princess Toadstool for continuity's sake. Please refer to her as Princess in your submissions. Toad Princess' assistant. Toad often has a lot to say, and usually cracks jokes here and there. Though he doesn't look like he's capable of much, he's proven he can pull through when things get tough, and is often fairly resourceful. King Bowser Koopa The leader of the Koopa Troop is big, bad, and proud of it. He's friends with no one, and even his henchmen are treated poorly by him. However, he does have a sense of humor, and it shows. His goal in life is to conquer the Mushroom World, one land at a time. He usually hangs out with either Mouser, Triclyde, a Troopa, or sometimes all three of them. In many episodes, he will don a costume and go by a different name, usually just for the heck of it. NOTE: On this show, he was never called Bowser, so the guide will usually refer to him as Koopa for continuity's sake. Please refer to him as Koopa in your submissions.

    • This could've been so much better

      This Mario cartoon was NOT what I expected. In fact this cartoon turned me off of Mario Bros games forever. It should've had rips on celebrities, politicians, current events, and reenact scenes from movies. Hated how the characters were portrayed as stereotypical, and the pasta jokes were ominous enough to make one want to vomit. Mario the all knowing alpha male, Luigi the wimpy coward and younger brother, Toad a goof off Bart Simpson like comic relief, the Princess, a perpetual damsel in distress. Thought Mario was the younger brother. In fact that's how it should be. Mario should've been a moronic, bumbling, hyperactive Lou Costello type, and always gets in trouble, but still prove himself in battle. Luigi should've been an outspoken, abusive, snarky, jaded, naysayer, smarter and tougher sidekick. Quick Draw McGraw and Yogi Bear had smarter sidekicks. This cartoon should've been like Stickin Around, Hey Arnold, Billy and Mandy. And have had plots similar to those said shows episodes. Also, it should've had Naked Gun, MST3K, Monty Python, Animaniacs and Ren and Stimpy style humor. 1990s alternative rock hits could've been played in the episodes Another thing it could've done was had some senseless horror movie-esque violence, gross you out, and hidden adult jokes and innuendos as well. Toad should've been the voice of reason, and The Princess, give them tips on how to defeat the enemy. Royalty always leads troops into battle. Mario could've messed up plans, and Luigi could've beaten the snot out of him for it. Or Mario could've told an urban legend that can lead them on a mission, and Luigi could've dismissed the story as nonsense.

      Those were some examples of how Mario cartoons could've been better. Who knows? If it had been like how I explained just now, maybe and perhaps the cartoons would've been renewed for more seasons and had higher ratings.moreless
    • i have the dvd

      i have the dvd for this show lol i can still watch it maybe the videogames would be ENDLESS
    • The voices

      When I seen the show on YouTube for the first time, the voices are not what I expected. The voices don't sound like anything from the games, in fact, the voices are horrible. And having on on the show live? Come on, they're not even real for pete's sake.
    • Has quirks, but still fun to see

      I watched a few episodes and I have many feelings about this show. Let me start off with the live action show. It felt kinda out dated to me. Princess Peach is known as Princess Toadstool and Bowsr as King Koopa, which is what they were called back then. The live action shows may be fun fo little kids but to older viewers, it still feels annoying. Now we get to the cartoons. The plots are exciting to watch seeing Mario get thrown into the action but I felt disapointed that the show relied too heavily on parodies instead of trying to do thier own original ideas. Still, I kinda liked the show.moreless
    • Nice!

      This is one of my favorite shows, it's better then some of the other shows I watched, (Like MLP, that isn't very great). Watch this show, and buy all the DVDs, trust me, you'll like it. If you were smart, I think you'll pretty much enjoy this besides stupid MLP.
