The Super Mario Brothers Super Show   1 comment

the "Real life Mario Brothers"
Link and Sprite

Each episode of the Super Mario Bros. Super Show had a live action introduction and ending hosted by the “Real life Mario Brothers” and a guest star who changed from week to week.  Mario was played by wrestler “Captain Lou” Albano, who also sang and danced during the end credits.

The bulk of the show was a cartoon.  On Monday through Thursday it was the Super Mario Brothers cartoon featuring Mario, Luigi, Princess and Toad.  But on Friday it was The Legend of Zelda, which I loved.  It wasn’t really true to the video games: Link and Zelda fought together, Zelda wore pants, Link would try to kiss Zelda and get slapped, and Link’s catchphrase was, “Excuuuuuse me, Princess!”  But I enjoyed it.

Jimmy Wong – Super Mario Bros Theme Song!! A Capella Cover   Leave a comment

Jimmy Wong is another artist I found on YouTube.  Most of the songs he posts are covers, and many of those are better than the originals.  Occaisionally he posts original songs, some of which are pretty funny.
