The Late Movies: The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!

Erica Palan

On this date in 1985, Americans were introduced to the Nintendo Entertainment System. And thank goodness! Is there another duo more synonymous with technological advancement than the Super Mario Brothers? Between their ongoing stint as video game characters, roles in movies, more merch than we could ever list, and a hilariously awful television series, the brothers have consistently remained a part of our culture. In celebration of Mario and Luigi, we present a roundup of clips from The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, which starred Lou Albano and Danny Wells. While it only lasted one season, it stays in our memories (and our hearts) forever. (Warning: The intro song will be stuck in your head for many, many hours after viewing these clips.)
