In 1989 the two most famous plumbers from Brooklyn burst out of the Nintendo® game world and onto television screens across America. The Super Mario Bros.® Super Show!™ aired weekday afternoons and brought Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and King Koopa more thrilling adventures as animated cartoon characters.
And if that weren’t enough, each episode also contained live-action segments featuring Mario and Luigi running their Brooklyn plumbing shop — all before they were flushed down a drainpipe into the Mushroom World. With professional wrestler Captain Lou Albano as Mario, Danny Wells as Luigi, plus a strong rock ’n’ rap score, the show attracted guest stars like pop sensation Cyndi Lauper, professional wrestler Sgt. Slaughter, Danica McKellar (The Wonder Years), NBA superstar Magic Johnson and Nicole Eggert (Baywatch).
These 24 original episodes, complete with animation and live-action segments, plus the special features will convince you…
"Hangin’ with the plumbers, you’ll be hooked on the brothers…"
