Appears in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Mario Kart Tour

The Goo-Goo Buggy (or the Mario Buggy[1], or Mario's Pram[2]) is a kart from the Mario Kart series. It resembles a blue baby buggy with a Smiley Flower emblem on each side. Its name comes from the onomatopoeia a baby makes.

History[edit]

Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart: Double Dash!![edit]

The Goo-Goo Buggy first appears in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as the signature kart of Baby Mario. It is a lightweight kart available when the game is first started. It has very low top speed, but very high acceleration and good handling. However, this kart is also rather light, and therefore is easily knocked around by heavier karts.

The Goo-Goo Buggy has the same speed and acceleration as the Toadette Kart in terms of stars, and the two karts are also tied in weight, meaning that they can't push each other around. However, the two karts are easily pushed around by the Para-Wing (another kart with the same in-game speed and acceleration, but is slightly heavier).

In terms of actual stats, the Goo-Goo Buggy is tied alongside the Toadette Kart and Para-Wing for having the lowest top speed, and the highest acceleration in the game.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Goo-Goo Buggy returns in Mario Kart Tour starting from the 2022 Cat Tour. A pink variant called the Goo-Goo Pink was introduced in the same tour, and a black variant called the Goo-Goo Black was introduced in the Bowser Tour. It is the signature kart of Baby Mario (Koala). It uses the Turbo Yoshi's tires. The Smiley Flower emblems have been replaced by the driver's emblem and the handlebar has been bent over the platform, making it unusable. The Goo-Goo Buggy increases the duration of Rocket Start boosts and the number of points earned for performing a Rocket Start.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

The Goo-Goo Buggy appears as an Advanced-class Attack-type spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, where it features the artwork of Baby Mario and Baby Luigi driving on it. It is unlocked as a reward for completing the challenge of KO-ing three characters in less than a minute in one match. When characters equip the spirit, it reduces their weight.

    • This souped-up baby carriage goes from zero to zoom in no time. However, once it gets going, it has a very low max speed. Plus, its light weight makes it a target for other karts to bully.

Another example of the incorrect weight of the Kart in Battle Mode.
  • In Battle Mode, the Goo-Goo Buggy's weight is tied with the Bullet Blaster's weight. However, it is heavier than the Bullet Blaster in any other game mode.
  • Similarly, the Toadette Kart in Battle Mode is heavier than the Goo-Goo Buggy, but both have the same weight in other game modes.
