Good stuff from the 80's line of cartoons
10 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

This here is a one of a kind video game spin off of Super Mario Bros. 1 & 2 and a spin off of the first 2 Legend of Zelda games.

It was made back in 1989 and ran for one season. What's cool about it is you get to see WWF's Captain Lou Albano as Mario. Even get to see him dressed as Mario in the Live Action segments of each episode.

You'll see some Celebrities on each live action segments as well. Best ones are with Ernie Hudson(when Ghostbusters 2 was still new) and Magic Johnson(before he announced he had HIV).

Throughout the series the Mario Bros. along with Peach and Toad travel the Mushroom World and being chased by King Koopa(Bowser) who's accompanied by Koopa Troopas, Shy Guy, or sometimes Tricycle the 3 headed serpent and Mouser the giant Mouse with shades.

Despite that this was made 16 years ago, the animation seemed better days. A good number of the episodes have animation mistakes, wrong lines, and a few flaws in the story that make an episode so and so.

But it's still good to see. Just know it has a lot of stuff you wouldn't find in the game. Plus King Koopa looks way different than his Video Game appearance.

And also there's the Legend of Zelda episodes(13 in total). They're OK to see. A few good ones, just wish they do a better job with Link and Zelda's appearances. Link has brown hair and is less serious than his video game appearance, and Zelda is more tomboyish and doesn't even wear any thing similar to what's she's like in the Video Game. At least it has stuff you'd find from the old Zelda Games. Just 75% different.

I highly recommend this to certain Nintendo Fans. Mainly those who are obsess with old school games or cartoons at least. This cartoon is suitable to all ages. Just contains cartoon mischief.

"Do the Mario" is a really cool theme song.
