NINTENDO - the good, the bad, and the ugly.
by: -RoG-

Hey everybody! Let's sing a stupid song!
The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!

"Do the Mario! Swing your arms from side to side. Come on, it's time to go. Do the Mario! Take one step, and then again. Let's do the Mario, all together now! You got it! It's the Mario! Do the Mario! Swing your arms from side to side. Come on, it's time to go. Do the Mario! Take one step, and then again. Let's do the Mario, all together now! Come on now. Just like that!"

I swear, after this show was released, there was always one kid in school acting like a complete jackass by singing the Super Mario Bros. Super Show theme song and swinging his arms from side to side. Ok... it was me. But that doesn't change the fact that this show was just out there. The cartoon was of course based on the Mario brothers, er, excuse me... SUPER Mario brothers and their pals Toad and the Princess. They went on many adventures and always saved the day, blah blah blah. To be honest, I couldn't give a shit about the cartoon. That's not what kept me coming back for another dose each week. What had me hooked was...

PUT THE GLASSES ON LOU! PUT THE GLASSES ON!
CAPTAIN LOU ALBANO!

That's right, in between the cartoon parts of the show, a real-life Mario and Luigi entertained us for hours. And who of all people did they choose to take on the extremely challenging role of Mario? Captain Lou Albano! That's right, the rubber-band clad, ranting ex-WWF star. Seems like a perfect choice. Man, it brings tears to my eyes just thinking of him singing the Super Mario theme song and doing his little dance. They would even have guests on the show: Cyndi Lauper, Nicole Eggert, Magic Johnson, and even other WWF stars such as Rowdy Roddy Piper. In that particular episode, Roddy's bagpipes get busted so he brings them to Mario and Luigi to fix. Somehow they get confused and convert the bagpipes into a vacuum cleaner and then have to frantically restore them before Piper finds out and kills them.

You know, if it wasn't for the boring cartoon part of the show, I bet they would still be airing new episodes to this day. Sadly, all we can do now is cry and listen to the theme song.
