Toad reading about the Cowazaurus
|First appearance||Quest for Pizza (1989)|
The Cowazaurus is a hybrid of a dinosaur and a cow briefly seen in the The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode Quest for Pizza. She is first seen when Toad was looking at a book with a picture of it. She is also shown to have an udder, black spots on her skin, a pinkish hue around her mouth, white hooves, bluish fur, and saggy ears. Some of her dinosaur-like traits are her long neck, and tall body in general. The arrangement of the teats on the udder also seems to be somewhat random, unlike normal cows.
Later in the episode, an actual specimen appears when Luigi is tasked with milking her, so he and his allies can make cheese for the pizza to give to Mario. While Luigi climbs a ladder to get to one of her teats, the Cowazaurus swipes the ladder out from under Luigi with her tail, making him hold on to one of the creature's teats. This causes a lot of milk to squirt into a conveniently placed bucket. Afterwards, the creature falls in love with Luigi, and begins to chase him, until he is rescued by a vine-swinging Toad.
