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
Every Friday, a "Legend of Zelda" cartoon was shown in place of a Mario cartoon. Scenes from the episode were shown as sneak previews on the preceding days. See more »
The animators forgot to draw a face on the character of Indiana Joe. That is because in the "Indiana Jones" movies, Harrison Ford's face (especially in the beginning of Raiders of the Lost Ark) is sometimes covered up by his hat. See more »

Yes, but I guess you'll have to do.

When shown in reruns after cancellation, DiC took out all the song covers played during the action/chase sequences, and replaced them with instrumentals of songs featured in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World , presumably because of music licensing issues for each of the songs. The original songs have been reinstated in the UK DVD volumes, but not on the Region 1 DVD releases, not even the box sets. See more »
That was pretty much my reaction as a kid when I found out there would be a TV show about the Mario Brothers. Not only did you get those life action sequences with Captain Lou Albano and Danny Wells, but you also got CARTOONS! Mario and Luigi running around fighting King Koopa. All the voices in the show were cast perfectly. I tried to watch the cartoons again and realized that they're all pretty similar but back in the day, it was classic. When the show first ran, in each episode they would have little scenes where they'd play songs like "Limbo Rock" and "Whatsamatta You" where Mario and Luigi would fight goombas and such. I saw the cartoons recently, and those songs were not there anymore. Very strange. And of course, you had that great closing theme "Do The Mario" with Captain Lou dancing all over the screen. However, the BEST part about the show had to be Zelda cartoons every friday. Not only did you get Mario, but Link too? That was amazing! He was such a smart alec to Princess Zelda. Ganon was awesome too. I loved the music that would play whenever Link would go into battle. "One more shot and you're deengergized, Ganon!" They also used all the same sound effects and theme from the game which was perfect.
Great show during the 80's. At least this was more closely related to the game, unlike that horrible movie.
