From the popular video game, Super Mario Bros. The Super Mario Bros. Super Show features Mario, his brother Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and her advisor going by the name of Toad. They go from land to land try to save that land from the sinister Bowser Koopa and his band of goombas, troopas, and other villians from the video game. The show also features live action parts with the voices of Mario and Luigi, Captain Lou Albano and Danny Wells. Each episode also features a special guest on every show. Written by
There was a View-master three-reel set based on the show (but labeled as "Super Mario Bros. 2"). The "A" reel showed various scenes from the live-action segments, while the "B" and "C" reels were an adaptation of the episode "The Bird! The Bird!" Oddly, although the picture descriptions say "King Koopa," the villain featured in reels "B" and "C" is clearly Wart. See more »
In the Robo-Koopa episode. as appears on the 'Mario's Greatest Movie Moments' DVD, the DVD subtitles misspell "Koopa" as "Kooboo" near the beginning of the episode. See more »

You called for a hero, princess?
Yes, but I guess you'll have to do.

Lou Albano, in live-action, sings and dances to "Do The Mario" during the closing credits. See more »
"Swing your arms, from side to side/Come on it's time to go do the MARIO!/Take one step, and then again/Let's do the MARIO all together now!/Everybody!/ Do the Mario!/ Just like thaaaaaat!". What a pathetic little dance. Swing your arms and take two steps, one at a time. Wow, I have to assume that it was written the night before the show aired and was crafted with very...hmmm..."physically un-taxing" moves to accommodate ex-pro wrestler Lou Albano, who played Mario. Incidentally, if you grew up in the 80's like I did, you might remember that Lou Albano used to be in all of Cyndi Laupers videos. Remember how at the end of the song, the "just like thaaaaat!" part, how he went down on one knee, and it looked like he was about to fall over? Sigh - I love nostalgia. I used to watch this show while I ate my Nintendo Cereal (NIN-TEN-DO it's a cereal, wow!) from an actual Super Mario Bros. bowl, no joke. What a terrific show, I have the episode where Princess Toadstool got kidnaped by Koopa (go figure) and Mario, Luigi, and Toad have to go to the desert oasis to save her. And it had the irritable genie, and the flying carpets, and PIDGETS (Luigi spoke pidget, actually). This show was followed up by the strange Super Mario 3 based cartoon and the completely strange and horrible Super Mario World based cartoon.
