“Junior's mom: Now where is that babysitter?
Junior's dad: Well, don't you think Junior's bad reputation could've scared him away?”
Junior's mom and dad, "Misadventures in Babysitting"

Junior's mom and dad are the parents of Junior, and appear in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Misadventures in Babysitting".

Although the parents care about their son, they are secretly desperate to get some time away from him. Due to their limited appearance in the episode, information about them is sparse. The mother appears to be the dominant parent of the two, as she does almost all of the talking, with the father only having one line.

When Junior's original babysitter fails to show up, Junior's mom finds Mario and Luigi in her kitchen, and practically dumps Junior in their arms just so that she and her husband can leave the house.

Later on, when the mom and dad come back, the mom finds Junior taking a bath. She assumes that Mario and Luigi did such a good job babysitting her son, that she desperately asks them if they're willing to babysit the following Friday.


  • The parents' appearances seem to be based on their voice actors, Catherine Gallant and Harvey Atkin.
  • The dad also bears a slight resemblance to Luigi; this may be due to an early revision of the episode's script, where he is the Mario Brothers' cousin, named Giuseppe.[1]
