Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss the first few Super Mario Bros. video games on the NES.
While Mario made his start as Jumping Man in 1981's Donkey Kong, he eventually became Nitendo's mascot thanks to being the de facto pack-in cartridge for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985. Light on plot, Super Mario Bros. instead focuses on the fantasy letting players control Mario and his friends through a series of surreal worlds featuring evil turtles, fish, and bullets. Over 30 years later and several spin-offs later, the series is still going strong. The new Super Nintendo World section of Universal Studio Japan is expected to launch sometime in 2021.
