Product Description

After sending the infamous King Koopa into the Banishment Zone, the heroic plumbers, Mario and Luigi, finally make it home to Brooklyn. But just when the Mushroom People think they’re safe, Koopa escapes and brings with him seven of the most vile creatures the world has ever known, the Koopa Kids! Now only the Super Mario Bros. can rid the Mushroom Kingdom of Koopa and his deviant minions…or can they?

Amazon.com

Premiering just six months after the release of the game that inspired it, the animated series The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 integrated elements from the game into a serial-style cartoon that pitted heroic plumbers Mario and Luigi against the reptilian King Koopa and a squad of new villains. Over the course of 13 double episodes, Koopa (who is also occasionally addressed by his American handle, Bowser) and his seven unpleasant children, the Koopa Kids (or Koopalings) wreaked havoc in both the Mushroom World and the "real world," including stints in Hollywood, Venice, Hawaii, and Washington, D.C. (which includes a guest appearance by then-President George H. W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush!). Coming to the defense are the heroic plumbers Mario and Luigi, as well as Princess Toadstool and her faithful friend Toad, who thwart the Koopa menace by using many of the power-ups and aspects of the Super Mario Bros. 3 game. As with the previous Super Mario Bros. TV series, The Super Mario Bros. Super Show, Super Mario Bros. 3 is long on action and fun and short on logic, and while the animation and scripting has dated poorly, the nostalgia inspired by seeing these shows again after almost two decades should help in overlooking any flaws. Longtime fans should know that several original songs have been removed from the episodes and replaced by generic background music; also missing is the infamous guest appearance by Milli Vanilli in "Kootie Pie Rocks," though this was pulled during the show's syndicated run. The three-disc set includes all 13 double episodes on two discs, while the third disc is devoted to supplemental features like "The Writers' Bible" (a rather bland string of recaps that serve to familiarize viewers with the characters and situations), a gallery of background and concept art, and a menu of original songs from the series. -- Paul Gaita

This, by far, was my favorite of all of the Super Mario cartoons that were produced, even if it did have the most un-original title ever (the fact that the number 3 is in the title kind of makes it laughable).

It is a very fun show, and is based rather closely on the 3rd Super Mario game from the original NES. This had some very, very memorable episodes, and what I really liked about it was the presentation of the various powers that the Mario Bros. could use in the actual game.

Now, this was a show produced for kids, so if you are an adult, and didn't watch this when it was originally on, you may want to bypass it now, as it's something that you probably won't find much entertainment in at this point (with maybe the exception of anyone who is an EXTREME Super Mario fan, partiuclarly of the 3rd game, but somehow missed this show the first time around).

As far as I can tell, all of the episodes are intact, pretty much in there entirety.

There is, of course, the issue of the infamous Milli Vanilli episode, in which Mario, Luigi, the Princess, and Toad all go to the 'real world' to see their concert, and the music group gets kidnapped by King Koopa. Now, it is true that the music has been changed. In the original airing of this episode, Milli Vanilli are shown on stage performing "Blame it on the Rain". However, after the whole lip sync scandal broke out, this episode was re-edited with generic music in the place of the previous song. Unfortunately, this proved to make the concert scene make little sense because the generic music doesn't even have any lyrics, and yet Milli Vanilli are shown on stage moving their mouths and singing (or, lip syncing, if you prefer).

Not only do I love this show just as much as I did when I was a kid, but my son - who shares my Wii with me and plays the current games in the Mario franchise like Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Mario Strikers - really enjoys the use of these same characters in these short cartoons with very basic plots. This is not great storytelling, and the DVD set production could have used some more effort, but the cartoons themselves are overwhelmingly cute and enjoyable... I encourage you to ration the cuteness because it's very easy to get too much TV time.

P.S. It seems as though Nintendo has severely drifted away from using the koopalings in favor of Bowser, Jr. If I hadn't grown up so attached to the 7 koopa kids in SMB3, Super Mario World, and some other games, maybe I wouldn't enjoy them so much, but I think they are used very well in these cartoons. If you like them too, make it known!

When The Super Mario Brothers Super Show ended its 52 episdoe run, people wondered exactly how the series would follow up. Enter The Adventures of Super Mario Brothers 3. With 26 episodes of non stop action, comedy, and even some insider tips, you can't ask for anything more!

This is one of the best DVD sets ever created.
Although, on the final episode "Super Koopa" the audio is cut by 2 or 3 seconds.
This however is not the DVDs fault, Shout Factory forgot to fix the problem.

This show was awesome. I loved it as a kid, and I still do. But why is it so awesome? I'll tell you why.

First off, it seemed to stay pretty spot-on with the series. Sure, the storylines weren't exactly the kind you'd probably see from the games, but as for the series itself, they were perfectly believable. Another way it stayed spot-on with the series is the way it used the power-ups and music from SMB3. The animation may have been a bit different, and it was a little odd in parts, but it was pretty spot-on overall.

Also, this cartoon is one of the many reasons so many fans love the Koopa Kids. It gave them the awesome personalities that we fans know and love them by (well, partly, since they also had personalities in the comics). Larry/Cheatsy was a liar, cheater, and double-crosser. Ludwig/Kooky was a crazy genius/inventor. Morton/Big Mouth liked to talk a lot, which made him funny. Need I go on? Their personalities were awesome, plain and simple.

Overall, simply an awesome cartoon. And I'm not just saying that out of nostalgia. It still holds up well today. ^_^

The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 is a 26 episode cartoon series. It is based on the video game by Nintendo.

This show is cute, colorful, and really fun. Each episode involves Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Toadstool protecting the Mushroom Kingdom and fighting off King Koopa and his 7 koopa kids.

This show is not as good as ''The Super Mario Bros. Super Show'', but it's still fun and entertaining. It's also filled with lots of scenes that will please fans of the games. I recommend this show to anyone.

Ever since I was a kid, I've loved this show, because it's based on one of my favorite games. In fact, I still have my Super Nintendo system hooked up and I still have the game! Throughout the series Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Toad try to stop King Koopa and his 7 little brats from taking over the Mushroom Kingdom. The series plays music and use sounds from the game. I highly recommend THE ADVENTURES OF SUPER MARIO BROS. 3: THE COMPLETE SERIES!!!

I agree, I got the SMB3 box set at Best Buy & I had to return it because of the diolauge/footage that was missing from those episodes.
