Editorial Reviews

Hey, Paisanos! It’s The Super Mario Bros.® Super Show!™

In 1989 the two most famous plumbers from Brooklyn burst out of the Nintendo® game world and onto television screens across America. The Super Mario Bros.® Super Show!™ aired weekday afternoons and brought Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and King Koopa more thrilling adventures as animated cartoon characters.

And if that weren’t enough, each episode also contained live-action segments featuring Mario and Luigi running their Brooklyn plumbing shop — all before they were flushed down a drainpipe into the Mushroom World. With professional wrestler Captain Lou Albano as Mario, Danny Wells as Luigi, plus a strong rock ’n’ rap score, the show attracted guest stars like pop sensation Cyndi Lauper, professional wrestler Sgt. Slaughter, Danica McKellar (The Wonder Years), NBA superstar Magic Johnson and Nicole Eggert (Baywatch).

These 24 original episodes, complete with animation and live-action segments, plus the special features will convince you…

"Hangin’ with the plumbers, you’ll be hooked on the brothers…"

SPECIAL FEATURES
A Brand New Interview with Captain Lou Albano ("Mario")
Original Art Galleries
Storyboard-to-Screen: The Super Mario Bros.® Super Show!™ Opening Title Sequence …and More!

5.0 out of 5 stars I want it badly... but I'm wary February 4, 2006
Format:DVD
Back in 1989-1990, there were five afternoon shows I watched all the time when I was a kid: Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers and Ducktales on Fox, while on KUSI-51 I watched the Jetsons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the Super Mario Bros Super Show. Now, four of them have finally been added to my DVD collection, and I am partially awaiting the arrival of TSMBSS to include the fourth.

The show is one of my favorites. While half of it features various little live action skits featuring the Mario Bros. and various guests, from Sgt. Slaughter to Magic Johnson and even Inspector Gadget(played by Maurice LaMarche in live action... far better than the performance Matthew Broderick gave), with some funny plots such as Mario switching bodies with Frankenstein's monster or Luigi getting trapped in a magician's hat. The other half is animated, in which Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach... sorry, Toadstool, and Toad attempt to try and rid the world of King Koopa.

The toons themselves were a bit of a merger of the first two Mario games. Koopa, for example, had Bowser's design and ego, but also had Wart's crown and color, plus Mouser(from the 2nd game) was his main henchman. The plots sometimes dealt with facing Koopa in the Mushroom Kingdom, but usually they took the plumbers and placed them in various situations: For example, movie parodies such as Indiana Jones, James Bond, or Godzilla, or homages such the group visiting Camelot... I mean, Cram-a-lot, or even prehistoric times. All the while Koopa would continue to menace the group under various disguises and alter-egos, similar to say, Boris Badanov from Rocky and Bullwinkle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing songs have me yearning for more July 26, 2011
By Alex C
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
OK, so they got the live segments, the bumpers, and the Zelda promos...but the cartoons are incomplete. In another instance of lawyers and copyright greed ruining everything, the original songs accompanying the climactic action sequences in the cartoons are replaced with bland and usually inappropriate instrumental substitutes. They didn't get the "rights." I now regret getting rid of my original VHS releases which retained the songs. For example:

"Pirates of the Koopa" originally had the song "Limbo Rock" by Chubby Checker. On this DVD release it's some completely scene-inappropriate instrumental music. And in "Too Hot to Handle" I believe the original song was "Hot Hot Hot" by Buster Poindexter. More like gone gone gone. These are just two examples but every episode is missing its song.

The problem with this is the songs added to the overall quality of the show. As a kid, I knew that when the song kicked in, it was the climax of the show, and then the denouement followed. With these substitutions, the intensity of the plot arcs is less an arc and more of a flat line. The action sequences are arguably sequenced around different parts of the song. With a substitution, that subtle context is lost. The songs were fun! The limbo rock sequence is one of the most remembered parts of the show for me and now it's butchered.

If you have ever seen the film masterpiece "Amadeus"...these omissions remind me of the ballet scene, when the emperor's decrees ban the music but not the dancing, so there are all these ballet dancers on stage with no musical accompaniment. It's awkward and strange. That's exactly what's happening here and on DVD releases of other old shows like Married with Children (iconic theme substitution). Copyright is ruining past shows and making them look worse than they were. Here we are paying for something instead of pirating it, and we're getting shorted! Puh-lease.

Format:DVD
While I am more of a Sonic fan these days, Mario was my first favorite Video Game hero. This show was how I first mainly learned about Mario (As well as the first (Super Mario, not normal Mario) game Super Mario Bros.) and everytime this show was on, I wasd glued to the set. When it went off the air, I bought videos I found (most of them are destroyed now due to accidental damage except for one). Then the Mario Mania DVD came out and I bought it on eBay from some fruad seller who never sent the item or responded to messages about it, I left negitive feedback to that person and reported him/her. Now this show is comming out on a DVD set with many great extras and I can finally see more from my childhood, this was one of the ways I first enjoyed Mario and this show also got me more interested in the games. For those who have not seen this 80's cartoon series and are Mario fans, just to let you know, this show is based the games Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 2 (US Version) and Bowser goes by his original Japanese name in the show, Koopa. And also this show also has many parodies on many things, Jack and the Beanstalk, Sword in the Stone, Godzilla, RoboCop, and many other books and movies. This makes it more original (sorta except it's based on books and movies as mentioned) then the first two games in many ways and sometimes they showed some of the characters actions like in game play, even including sound effects from the games themselves.

If you are oldschool Mario fans or a fan of 80's cartoon series, get this one. If you have kids, this show would be a great show to entertain them as well since a lot of the stuff it has is kidish stuff.
