mentioned something called the “Saturday supercade” where Mario is voiced by Optimus Primes voice actor. I’m am intrigued right away and have to see this... and... okay I don’t know exactly what I was expecting, but I wasn’t expecting THAT. I gotta remember this is like, before console Mario, the mushroomed out version of Mario wouldn’t come until way later...but still it’s like a Hannah Barbara Mario and it feels wrong? Like it’s a bootleg rip off but it isn’t? Like this is official as it gets, oh by the way the whole sho opens with the following
-A full 2 minute McDonald’s music video
-An intro video that Is realistically like 3 minutes but feel like an eternity -PREVIEWS OF EVERYSINGLE JOKE THAT WILL BE MADE IN THE NEXT HOUR. This goes on for another minute and a half
-LIKE 5 COMMERCIALS
-a welcome back bumper
-ANOTHER TOTALLY SEPARATE INTRO SEQUENCE FOR THE SEGMENT YOUr about to watch...
And finally, after all that. The show finally begins. The cartoon themselves are only about 8 minutes. It was a glorious time when corporate greed was everything and everybody kinda loved it, Fast food, video games, toys and Saturday morning cartoons designed to sell all three of those things. These forces all came together and just kind of exploded into this Day Glow monster in sunglasses that reeked of aqua-net and did RAD wake-boarding stunts.
