The Mushroom Times is a newspaper first mentioned in the issue Bedtime for Drain-Head of Nintendo Comics System, in which Mario tells Luigi to write the Mushroom Times a letter after being told that Bowser has kidnapped Toad.

The Mushroom Times later appears in the instruction booklet of Mario Pinball Land.[1] It explains that Princess Peach was launched to Bowser's castle with the Sky Cannon during the ceremony and that Mario went to save her. It also includes additional information about the Pinballer and the Sky Cannon. The newspaper contains four images, depicting Peach, Goombas, and Mario. The instruction booklet states that the Mushroom Times is a daily newspaper located on Toadstool Street and Second Avenue.
