The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!

Season 1 Episode 4

Mario's Magic Carpet / Marianne and Luigeena

Aired Saturday 8:00 AM Sep 07, 1989 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • On the cover of the VHS tape they show Mario, Luigi, and Toad on a magic carpet that they never ride, with a genie that looks completely different than the one in the episode.

    • Why would Koopa throw Princess in quicksand? Doesn't he realize that without her, he can't become the ruler of the Mushroom Land?

    • The bottom of Koopa's carpet is supposed to be completely navy blue. However, when Princess falls through the trap door, the door is yellow for that one shot.

    • Once Koopa shows up, the lower half of the Sultan's body disappears for a few shots.

    • The official episode synopsis reads, "The Marios wage a wild magic carpet battle to save the Princess from being forced into King Koopa's harem." That contradicts the actual story, though. It was Sultan Pasbah who wanted to add Princess to his harem; Koopa just wanted to dump her in the quicksand.

    • After Koopa throws Princess down the quicksand we see her sink down to the head in 6 seconds. Then there goes about 42 seconds until we see her again and then she of course should've been sunken down and dead but NO, she is not. She is higher up then (so much high up so we can see a little of her dress).

    • Koopa orders for a dozen Pidgits, but only eight come.

      Mario: What's wrong?
      : Kinda been looking forward to going dancing. The nerve of that Mel Gibson taking my girls! (Mario and Luigi laugh)
      Luigi: You're such a kidder, Lyle! (he gladly punches Lyle on the arm, but gets his knuckles cracked)
