Super Mario Bros. Super Show (Title Card)

Title card

The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! was an American television show based on Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 2. There were two segments to the show, a live-action sequence starring WWF/E Hall of Fame wrestler-turned-manager, the late Capt. Lou Albano as Mario and the late Danny Wells as Luigi. Then there was an animated sequence in which Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool would battle King Bowser Koopa. Every fifth episode (which would air on a Friday) featured Link, Zelda and Ganon in a Legend of Zelda animated adventure.

The show ran in 1989 from September 4 through December 1 with a total of 65 episodes. 52 of the episodes had Mario characters in the animated segments while the other 13 had Zelda characters. The live-action segments with Albano and Wells appeared in all 65 episodes.

Video releases


  • In the first three episodes, Toad has a different color scheme (red hat with white spots, white vest, red pants, white shoes) than what is used in all later episodes and the intro sequences (white hat with red spots, red vest, white pants, purple shoes). His first color scheme does later make a reappearance as his Super Toad form in "The Fire of Hercufleas".
  • When the series was streamed on Yahooligans! TV in 2004, the episode "King Mario of Cramalot" was noticeably slowed down, and also had two false commercial fade-outs inserted into the animated segment. For whatever reason, this version of the episode was used on all subsequent DVD releases as well as later digital and streaming releases, and as a result of this, it is also the only Super Show episode that is now commercially presented without its episode-specific commercial bumpers or Legend of Zelda preview. It is unknown if DHX Media still has the original version of the episode.
  • In July 1990 the show was retooled as Club Mario, where the Mario and Luigi live-action segments were replaced by two Mario-crazy teen fans named Co M.C. and Tommy Treehugger. Interestingly, while the Mario segments were replaced, they are far better known today. Following the bankruptcy of Dic, it was taken over by Cookie Jar Entertainment, which went through a thorough inspection of Dic's archives and ordered all Club Mario tapes destroyed. However, they did not do so with the tapes that contained the original Mario and Luigi segments, presumably because of the success of the earlier VHS releases. As a result, The Super Mario Brothers Super Show has remained updated with DVD releases today.
  • The iTunes and Amazon Instant Video releases of the episode "The Unzappables", for some reason, have its live-action segment, "George Washington Slept Here", inexplicably replaced with a Club Mario segment, making it the only Club Mario episode to be commercially available. It is unknown what happened to the master copy of "George Washington Slept Here".
