Bowser's mother is a character who primarily appears in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! in the episode "Do You Princess Toadstool Take this Koopa...?" She is portrayed as being loudmouthed and overbearing, appearing to be somewhat disappointed in and continuously doting on her son, and is also hinted at being somewhat of a glutton. Her son constantly refers to her as "Mama," while she calls her son "Koopums."
The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!
In "Do You Princess Toadstool Take this Koopa...?", King Koopa first mentions his mother in the episode while making preparations for the wedding with Princess Toadstool, whom he had blackmailed into marrying him. Unable to think of any friends to invite, Koopa tells Mouser to invite his mother, saying she will come for the cake.
Koopa's mother arrives at the castle as he is instructing his Koopa Troopa band to play better. Immediately praising her son for finally finding a wife to settle down with, Koopa's mother, upon seeing Toadstool, proclaims that after they are married, they will honeymoon with her in "the foulest, smelliest swamp in seven worlds." Toadstool sobs after hearing this, which Koopa's mother misinterprets as her being overcome with joy.
As the wedding is about to begin, Koopa's mother scolds her son for not being dressed properly, Koopa hurrying off to get ready. As Koopa puts on his wedding jacket and pants, his mother calls for her son to hurry. Koopa impatiently returns to the wedding with Mouser, not noticing that he had left behind his Koopa Scepter, which Mario manages to claim. Before Toadstool can say, "I do," Super Mario, Super Luigi, and Toad appear to interrupt the wedding with a hail of fireballs. After Toadstool calls the wedding off upon learning that Koopa had double-crossed her, his mother voices her outrage that she now has to tell all their relatives that her son is still a bachelor. She then punishes him by ordering him to sit in the corner for six days, as Koopa falls on his face.
