Saturday Morning Cartoon: The Super Mario Bros. Super Show
You start to hear the sounds of the morning, the wind rustling the leaves, the chirping of the birds and that’s when you realize what day it is–Saturday! Cartoons! All week long you’ve been starved of cartoons, and now it is your time to feast! You throw off the covers, shove your feet in your slippers and sprint downstairs!
Grab that big bowl of C-3POs, adjust the antennae and plop down on the floor for your weekly dose of animated fun!
This is “Analog Agent Benjamin” coming at you this week with…. The Super Mario Bros. Super Show
Back when I was a kid, I thought that the Super Mario Bros. Super Show was the Best Video Game Cartoon ever, and after all these years, it’s still the Best.
This was a great show, and what made it even better was that it was also on weekday afternoons, so when I got back home from school, I would always try and watch it before my dad got home to watch the news. The only time it was bad was when they remade it for the 90’s as Club Mario and took out the live-action Mario Bros. parts and replaced them with two Bill & Ted rip-offs as hosts. Now if you pardon me, it’s time to “Do the Mario”.
So, did you ever watch the Super Mario Bros. Super Show? How many times did you “Do the Mario”?
