TV Shows - Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, The

The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! is the first American TV series based on the Super Mario Bros. NES series of video games. It was broadcast in syndication from September 4, 1989 through September 7, 1991. The show was produced by DiC Entertainment and was distributed for syndicated television by Viacom. The first and last parts of each episode were live action and showed Mario (played by "Captain" Lou Albano) and Luigi (Danny Wells) living in Brooklyn, where they would often be visited by celebrity guest stars. After a brief introduction of the sitcom segment of the show, a commercial would air and a ten-to-13 minute cartoon broadcast next, featuring characters and situations based upon the NES Super Mario Bros. On Fridays, the show would air The Legend of Zelda. During the summer of 1990, Club Mario replaced the Mario Bros. live-action segments. This featured "extreme" Mario-obsessed teenagers (Chris Coombs, Michael Rawlins, and Victoria Delany) goofing around, and in at least one episode, running around the DiC studios and harassing Andy Heyward. Coombs and Delany played siblings Tommy and Tammy Treehugger. An additional added segment was a one-to-two-minute viewing of "Space Scout Theater", hosted by Princess Centauri, a green alien woman, which was edited from the TV series, Photon.

1 It boned when those two guys wearing Zubaz pants replaced Lou Albino (RIP) and Danny Wells. They came out of nowhere, I wasn't expecting the title of the show to change so quickly in the summer of 90. Everything about Club Mario was so early 90s that it looks dated today. I mean, Tommy Treehugger? This was after the hole in the ozone was discovered and the 20th anniversary of Earth Day. It made sense for him to be named Tommy Treehugger. Co MC was the other guy, whatever happened to rappers using MC with their name? The Super Mario cartoons were filled with corny humor and not enough action. I teared up when I heard Zelda utter that one line, "Well excuse me, Princess". After that, I watched it with the sound off. I thought the live-action segments with Lou and Danny were alright. Nicole Eggert was a guest star on the show which was a big plus. They got Ernie Hudson after the atrocity better known as Ghostbusters 2 months after it was released in Theaters. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 14, 2014, 10:18 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I think I waa too old for this when it debuted, but I still thought it wasn't very good. The cartoons were completely incomprehensible to me and believe it or not I preferred the live-action "sitcom" segments. I guess those segments had that "so-bad-it's-good" thing going for them whereas the cartoons were just forgettable. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 18, 2010, 12:04 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Day One. Love the Mario video games, but the attempts at other media (Film/TV) were epic failures. This show was so bad in so many different ways. The live action segments were completely corn ball and over the top. The introduction with that awful rap number was very 90s and seems quite dated now. The Mario cartoon was poorly written and could have used more action in the storylines. The Zelda cartoon was the worst of all. Link in the video games is a selfless, fearless hero. In the cartoon he was this lazy, rude surf dude who just wanted to get it on with Zelda. I understand the whole thing was just a hokey cartoon for kiddies, but couldn't they have used more quality writing and animation? Super Mario 3 and Super Mario World on NBC weren't any better. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 17, 2010, 5:00 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 The live-action stuff with Captain Lou Albano (R.I.P.) was so-so. When it went to Club Mario and I saw the opening that involved that, my first thought was "What the hell is this crap?" Club Mario was an epic fail in terms of being "hip". -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on April 15, 2010, 10:39 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I would have voted Day One, but the over-the-top live action segments and the once-weekly Zelda cartoon made up for the animated Mario, which was dreadful to say the least. -- Submitted By: (LoyalPigeon) on April 25, 2009, 6:57 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
