Hey, pisanos! It's The Super Mario Brothers Super Show!
Ah, this show epitomized the cheese of the late eighties and early nineties. It had a rap, canned laughter, former wrestlers posing as video game mascots, ethnic stereotypes, "celebrity" cameos, you name it.
I remember watching this after school when I was about six. However, I dreaded Friday episodes, because there was NO trace of Mario. Stupid Legend of Zelda. I wanted my Mario, dammit!
To this day, I refuse to call the princess "Peach". She'll always be Princess Toadstool to me, partially thanks to this cartoon.
And now for the clips.
The opening theme (is it just me, or does the rapper sound like Flava Flav? And what the hell is a pisano?):
Do the Mario!
Here's a cameo by Magic Johnson:
Did Mario drop the f-bomb?
And finally, a clip from the cartoon segment. After watching this, I decided that I hate Toad. With a passion.
