  1. Doomhiker (talk)That's an article that should be featured to you! Jokes aside, this page has the episode's most recognizable quotes from what I can tell, that page has a great introduction, the page fully describes the episode while following the writing guidelines and the page covers the known missing scenes extremely well. Basically this page is a perfect example of how to make a page of an episode and the page itself is amazing with it being a reasonable length, which is why I think it should be featured.
  2. FanOfYoshi (talk) Per Doomhiker. "That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario!" "Beagles" and some others are greatly used on the internet.
  3. Moldomre (talk) Y'know, at first thought this was a joke, but then I actually read the article. Per Doomhiker, the article's put together really well.
  4. Baby Luigi (talk) Issues I had seen with the article is fixed. I think it's safe to feature it, it's pretty well-exhaustive, well-written, and.. well a first time an episode from the Mario cartoons to get featured. I support.
  5. Toadette the Achiever (talk) My main issue with this article has since been resolved. Let's do this!
  6. TheFlameChomp (talk) Per all.
  7. Bazooka Mario (talk) Sure, it's also a good break from everything else that's been featured.
  8. Waluigi Time (talk) Mama? Mama Luigi? Per all.


Removal of opposes


Are we supposed to have the transcript for the episode? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 14:48, 11 February 2019 (EST)

If you mean that we are supposed to have all of the quotes for the episode as listed in the page, then yes. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 14:51, 11 February 2019 (EST)
That's the episode's full transcript. My question is if this wiki should have full transcripts for cartoons. I know we removed full transcripts for particular MaRPG games because it strays into questionable copyright territory. I think transcripts are neat and useful but I don't know if it's risky to have them or not compared to just select quotes. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 15:13, 11 February 2019 (EST)
I do not think is too risky as it is not like we have the entire episode in video form on the page with the exact music from the episode playing, we only list what the characters say. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 15:19, 11 February 2019 (EST)
I still think the presentation of the episode's entire transcript is really clunky, unnecessarily lengthens the page, and something we could do without. Just leave it as a summary of select notable quotes from the episode. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 18:22, 11 February 2019 (EST)

I like to know if that developer interview, reference 3, has any interesting tidbits about this episode that we can incorporate. Unfortunately, the link is broken, it appears, though we do have an archive of the site. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 15:26, 11 February 2019 (EST)

The biggest problem with this page is the plot summary. It incorrectly uses "when" and "where" too much, it has a lot of grammar mistakes, and it's full of run-on sentences. I'm currently fixing it. Scrooge200 (talk) 17:28, 11 February 2019 (EST)

The plot summary has been fixed to remove badly written sentences, but I don't know if I'd consider the article one of the best the wiki has to offer. Scrooge200 (talk) 17:42, 11 February 2019 (EST)
@Scrooge200, what do you think should be changed/added to make the article one of the best the wiki has to offer? Also, thanks for improving the plot summery. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 17:49, 11 February 2019 (EST)
I think it needs more sources. I know this is minor, but the image captions kind of bug me because they're all really similar (Character, doing thing.) Scrooge200 (talk) 17:53, 11 February 2019 (EST)
Improved the image captions. As for the sources, which things specifically need more sources? Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:01, 11 February 2019 (EST)
I don't think there definitely needs to be more sources. One point of contention that wouldn't make me outright oppose the nomination is that the trivia is a bit overly long; for example, the trivia point referring to the episode's Internet meme would probably do better in its own section, along with a hatnote referring to the appropriate section in List of Mario references on the Internet.
I'm also perring Bazooka Mario in that the developer interview might be better suited in a "Development" section, provided we can find a little more info on the episode's development. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 18:13, 11 February 2019 (EST)
I added a cultural impact section while merging trivia and removing quotes per Baby Luigi, although I could not find more about the episode's development to warrant a separate section. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:41, 11 February 2019 (EST)
