Grass Land (alternatively Grasslands or The Grassland) is the first world of Super Mario Bros. 3. It has six regular levels, one Hammer Brother to encounter, one fortress, a Spade Panel, two Toad Houses, and a castle that has been taken over by an airship. In the third level, and in the fortress, Mario can get two out of the three Whistles in the game. Larry Koopa, one of the seven Koopalings, guards this area and is the boss of Grass Land.
The king of Grass Land wears a turban, and has a beard. During the events of the game, he is turned into a dog by the Koopalings; the SNES and Game Boy Advance versions of Super Mario Bros. 3 instead see him turned into a Cobrat.
The world map included in Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 shows that Grass Land is bordered by Desert Land to the south and Pipe Land to the east. Likewise, the opening implies that Grass Land is in close proximity to the Mushroom Kingdom.
The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3
In The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, Grass Land does not make an explicit appearance; however, its map shows up as the opening curtain when the Mushroom Kingdom is the episode's main setting, implying them to be one and the same or at least its animated equivalent. The Mushroom Kingdom (also sometimes called Mushroomland) appears in almost every episode at some point, as it was where Mario and his friends live. Mario and Luigi live in Toad's house, while Princess Toadstool lives in the Mushroom Castle.
