Did You Know?


In the games, the Starman makes the Mario Bros. invincible, but in the cartoon, it gives them the same power as the Fire Flower. In the later Super Mario Bros. cartoons, the Starman does make them invincible. 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 »


Sultan: These priceless jewels are yours. When you join my harem.
Princess Peach Toadstool: Me, join a harem? Oh give me a break! Harems are from the stupid olden days!

A great nostalgic feeling
10 April 2007 | by mbe-10See all my reviews

Wow. As a child of the 80's, I remember the craze of the Super Mario Bros, TMNT and so on. I remember rushing home from school every day that this cartoon was on and commandeering the TV. It was a great show then, and it is now. Watching it reminds me of being in elementary school, where life was simple, and all I had to worry about was simple mathematics and getting past the castle in level 7 of Super Mario Bros (that one was crazy, it still confuses me to this day!). I'm glad to see that all of the great cartoons and video games of the 80's are making a comeback, and am pretty sure that most, if not all of the "children of the 80's" will agree. This is a great tribute to our childhood and something wonderful to share with the young kids of today. 10 out of 10 stars!
