I’m just going to jump right in to this because that’s how awesome it is.
I watched one clip that even showed a part of the show. Mario, Luigi, and Toad beat King Koopa [he wasn’t known as Bowser then] by eating garlic and breathing it on him. King Koopa was a vampire, you see, and he had kidnapped Princess Toadstool [she wasn’t known as Peach] as usual.
Then comes the credits of the show:
I’m sure you’ve heard of Felix the Cat. This cat is oooold. He first debuted in 1919, when movies were silent. There was no such thing as television. In 1953 or so, a television show was started. Then, in the late 80s/early 90s, this movie came about:
Unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t show how *strange* the movie is. For a strange and creepy time, watch the movie.
The strangeness of the Felix movie, for some reason, reminded me of another strange movie Sister and I would watch: FernGully: the Last Rainforest.
When I was watching some of these clips, my own mother even wondered how I turned out mostly normal. That’s how messed up the 90s were.
Oh, and The Super Mario Bros. Super Show and FernGully: The Last Rainforest are available on Netflix, if you like to torture yourself.
