I think something most people don't realize is how accurate this show was for what we had back in the 80s for Super Mario. Since this show was (most likely) going off of what Mario was in Japan, Bowser would be known as King Koopa and Mario and Luigi would have inverted colors on their clothing. This would be highly true to the Japanese version of Super Mario. I think this show has some great music compositions, too. The theme song is really catchy. The character designs could've been better, like how Mario just looks a little _too_ fat... And with voice acting, they chose great ones especially since Charles Martinet wasn't the official voice of Mario yet. Overall, this was a pretty accurate show for being from 1989.
