Talk:List of Mario references in animated television
Dude whats WITH the TV cartoons that are not relevant here? This is a Mario Wiki not a cartoon Wiki.(Super F22 Pilot 00:46, 30 November 2007 (EST))
It's simply a listing of all the known Mario references that can be found in non-Mario shows. What doesn't belong on this page? -- Booster
- Yes, it lists all the references and sightings of Mario in other non-related TV shows. My Bloody Valentine And, in a similar fashion to what Booster said, what is out of place here?
Hey guys I'm going to remove the section about the Barnyard, because suck up ghosts is a refrance to Ghost Busters, not Luigi's Mansion. -Nerdy Guy
I think that in an episode of southpark, there are two blurry screenshots from SMB and SMB2 on a couple of arcade machines. check it out on themushroomkingdom.net on the refrences page. Senor Luigi20:01, 27 May 2009 (EDT)
Tales of Symphonia Anime
I think there is a Mario reference in the ending credits of episode 3. During the credits, the group travels through a forest and several mushroom-enemies appear. One of the protagonists defeats them by jumping on all of them in a row, similar to stomping on a row of Goombas. In addition, a ghost shows up, behaving similar to a Boo (he does not attack when directly faced)

In Cliffordfield and Big Time Rushmore one sketch shows two Goombas, then one gets stomped by Mario and the other one starts freaking out. The same thing happens later on in the episode.--Mr. 8-bit 11:10, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
Pinky Dinky Doo
In the episode "Burpzilla", when Pinky jumps out of the car to use her big idea, she does a somersalt move just like Mario in Super Mario Bros 3. Also, in the episode "Speed Rocket", the race is similar to Mario Kart. Except no powerups in order to prevent ripoffs from Mario Kart games
In the episode "Atlantis Squarepantis, the game Mission Start: The Germ Warrior is similar to a Mario game
Zig and Sharko
In the episode "The Island Tour", Zig and Sharko go into a Mario game from a pipe. Also when the characters race, it is similar to Mario Kart
In the episode "Sophie's Sinking Feeling", when the characters ride the Bath-Mobile (an invention by Sophie), it goes in a 2-D Mario-like action, also when the jump in the water, it is similar to Super Mario 64 when they splash the water.
In the episode "Tokyo Go", when Mickey goes through a tunnel, the scene changes to that of a video game, which is Mario-like
The description mentions "the new animated Spider-Man TV show". Question is, which one exactly? Is it talking about Spectacular Spider-Man or Ultimate Spider-Man? (Personally, I'm presuming the description meant the former, considering the Jeph Loeb-induced vitirol for the latter... Of course, we all have to be sure first.) Pikawil 00:35, 6 July 2012 (EDT)
The Hell is with this stupid page?
Okay look some of these reference are fine, but other things just seem made up? Homer wearing a red shirt and over alls? Like, that's a reference because they didn't choose one of the less common colors for shirts?
Here's a list of references I'm nominating for removal and why.
Kirby: Right Back At Ya!
In the episode "A Princess in Dis-Dress", Escargoon says the princess who is visiting is a peach. Also, things resembling Party Balls appear in a few episodes. Party Balls weren't created by Nintendo. They don't even feature in any Mario game
Ello Gov'nor In this episode, Mordecai rents a movie called "Shy Guy".
NO! Shy Guy is just the English name of heihos, there isn't a reference there. It's probably more of a reference to Mordecai's anxiety about the Margaret character.
King of the Hill In some episodes, the Souphanousinphones have a pet terrier named "Doggie Kahn", which is most likely a parody of "Donkey Kong". NOOOOO! NOOOOO! Khan is the man of the family's name. He named his daughter after himself because he's egotistical.
- Just because someone is named Bowser doesn't make them a reference. Bowser is a semi popular British name.
- Angry faces on bombs weren't something invented by Super Mario World. People have been doing that since World War 2.
- In addition to what you've mentioned, there's a ridiculous number of entries that seems to assume Mario invented cartoon man-eating plants. I'd clean it myself, but, time. --Glowsquid (talk) 14:12, 6 December 2012 (EST)
Dude WHAT is Eddsworld doing here? This should go here!
Finishing Code Monkeys
Whoever finished the Code Monkeys section, I want to thank you! I've been working on that section for so long but never got to finish it because I was too busy to finish and research on Code Monkeys and return to here. Zero777 (talk)
That section should include "Class Clown", because on FOP wiki, the reference can be found. And that
f**king Baby Luigi doesn't say it's a reference. I have no account there, I just read. IT IS A D**N REFERENCE!

- Even though you crossed it out, I think you're borderline personally attacking me. Ray Trace(T|C) 16:39, 30 September 2014 (EDT)
- It's a reference because wikia site says so. Legit. I'm pretty sure something like this merde' was taken from the Spongebob Squarepants wikia. Just because it's a human-eating plant doesn't make it a reference to Mario. These kinds of plant have been in pop culture ever since the existence of venus fly traps. Have you read the above discussions? KaBoom! 16:41, 30 September 2014 (EDT)
At 0:31, You can see the animated series "Doki" with a Super mario reference!!
Can you please add this?
Homestar Runner's first episode was animated using Mario Paint.
Which kinds of images in particular do we need? And how would one upload images? Would we just upload pictures from the internet, and what role do copyrights play? ThePeachinator (talk) 01:50, 27 April 2016 (EDT)
- images from videos, like a screencap of the said reference from youtube. also, you don't need to worry about copyright, this isn't youtube with the content id crap system. Ray Trace(T|C) 02:16, 29 April 2016 (EDT)
Mr. Men Donkey Kong Reference
- The simplest way to figure that out is to see the image in context to the episode. -- Ghost Jam 22:18, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
- What is the episode called? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:24, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
- No clue, but I'm sure we could Google it or something. -- Ghost Jam 23:10, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
- The episode is called "Mr. Brave vs. Koko the Gorilla" and can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7-31t75xj0
- Appears to not be a DK reference, rather a generic King Kong reference. -- Ghost Jam 16:18, 27 May 2016 (EDT)
- If there are no further opinions on this, I'm going to remove the talk tag and delete the image. -- Ghost Jam 19:46, 31 May 2016 (EDT)
- What is the episode called? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:24, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
Why is the Loud House on here?
Just because a character has a mustache and similar hair doesn't make it a reference to Mario.Goombat 18:35, 22 December 2016 (EST)

Add other Mario references in other animated shows?
Maybe Can You add Mario references in other shows (Sergeant Stripes, Doris (Hilary Hayton), Animal Stories, Meeow!, Cyberchase, El Perro y el Gato, Archibald the Koala, James the Cat, Poppy Cat and Rocket Power)?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by CitationNeededKid (talk).
- Well that depends if they have them. Do you happen to know any?
- Also, please remember to sign your comments with: ~~~~
On the Song "Unpack Your Adjectives", The Turtle looks mostly like a Koopa Troopa.
On the Song "The Greatest Show on Earth", The Man bears some resemblance to Wario and Waluigi.
At end of the Song "A Victim of Gravity", After an Apple hits Isaac Newton's Head, Isaac Newton makes a Face like a Shy Guy Mask.
- According to this, the episodes with those songs aired before those subjects were created, meaning the similarities are most likely coincidences. --TheFlameChomp (talk) 18:45, 28 April 2018 (EDT)
Sound effects heard in animation/cartoons is also heard in Three DiC Mario Cartoons
I Had to Tell You, I Notice that the Sound effects heard in animation/cartoons is even also heard in Three DiC Mario Cartoons (The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World (TV series).--CitationNeeded (talk) 19:27, 4 June 2018 (EDT)
The Owl and Co.
|This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.|
I've found a reference of it. First of all, the Owl and the Chick played a game, they used helmets to connect themselves to the game, when they collected items and jumped, the sounds were from the SNES games. After beating themselves up, they've got into the game. They reached a boss. The boss looked similar to a Chain Chomp. --184.108.40.206 03:29, 3 July 2018 (EDT)
- Ps: Anyone got these references? --220.127.116.11 03:42, 3 July 2018 (EDT)
In the episode Gorilla Rabbid, in the scene where the Gorilla Rabbid take the female Rabbid cop to the top of the ramp, the Gorilla Rabbid starts throwing barrels at the male Rabbid cop, where it well cut to a retro style of that scene. As if you can probably tell, this is a reference to Donkey Kong.

Ed, Edd n Eddy
On the episode "Momma's Little Ed", Marie calls May Bowser while she shouts "Back off, bowser!".
--Ronald McDonald is not a Mario character! 00:35, May 27, 2019 (EDT)

- I reverted them for that exact reason; they were all added by an anon consecutively, so I was able to revert them all. TheDarkStar 16:44, July 14, 2019 (EDT)
Possible missing content
I'm not sure if you have every cartoon that's in the YouTube video I'm about to send you the name of, but... Mario Evolution in Movies, Cartoons & TV by Darwin's Media. Lord Falafel (talk) 11:25, August 3, 2019 (EDT)
The Star of Christmas
No, I'm not talking about the artifact. I'm saying that the Mario reference in the VeggieTales Star of Christmas episode might be an unintentional coincidence based on speculation and assumption. Sure, both Mario and "The Princess and the Plumber" in VeggieTales involve a princess and a plumber, but the storylines are completely different. Most Mario games see Mario and/or Luigi rescue Princess Peach from Bowser. The Princess and the Plumber's plot in VeggieTales, on the other hand, goes a little something like this...
"On the night before Christmas, the princess' sink backs up and so of course she calls the plumber. Now unbeknownst to the plumber, the princesses' pipes are magic pipes. So, as he's working on them on Christmas Eve, he is visited by the 4 fairy peas of Christmas and the Sugar-Plumber fairy."
The ending is also completely different, too:
"The plumber has defeated the evil Monkey King in a plunger duel, the Sugar-Plumber Fairy has turned the wicked building inspector into a newt, thereby declaring the castle inhabitable and reducing the need for flood insurance and for the first time, the princess realizes that it's the plumber that she's loved all along."
Not only that, but I watched the Behind the Scenes feature on the DVD and they didn't mention "The Princess and the Plumber" being an intentional reference to Mario in any capacity...unless I'm mis-remembering something.
All-in-all, just a coincidence and probably based on assumption, but I don't want to remove it just yet. What do you think? Is it an intentional reference or a pure coincidence? – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 16:06, August 6, 2019 (EDT)
- It seems coincidental to me. The only similarities are the mere presence of a princess and a plumber, otherwise there's no actual references to the game. While there is mention of a monkey king which could be interpreted as a reference to Donkey Kong, it could also easily be a reference to the mouse king from the Nutcracker, which wouldn't surprise me at all given the mention of an obvious sugar plum fairy spoof in the same sentence. -- Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 17:31, August 6, 2019 (EDT)
Why is The Amazing World of Gumball not there? Is there no link to it, or have you guys not seen it and saw a Mario reference? (Not to be rude or anything, just asking.) Killer (talk) 19:13, November 13, 2019 (EST)
No, they should not. That's not how the world works. I've seen books at the library and movies and TV shows at Barnes and noble and they don't have that stuff with the word the being the first word of the media, but rather the next word. Also, how does one not get banned by having the name killer? No disrespect, just baffled. Lord Falafel (talk) 20:26, November 13, 2019 (EST)
