The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3: The Complete Series
The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3: The Complete Series is a DVD release of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 containing all 26 episodes and bonus features within a 3-disc boxset. It was released on June 26, 2007, by Shout! Factory.
The cover to the boxset is reminiscent of the cover art to Super Mario Bros. 3, featuring Raccoon Mario flying up in the air (although he is depicted in his current color scheme of blue overalls and red shirt, which was swapped in the cartoon), while King Koopa looks on, angry. The Koopa Kids appear on the checkerboarded floor, alongside Frog Luigi.
On May 14, 2013, NCircle Entertainment reissued the boxset as The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3: The Complete Series - Collector's Edition. Other than trailer changes, this release is the same as the Shout! Factory release. The cover art to this version features the artwork of Caped Mario from Super Mario World.
"When it premiered as part of NBC's Saturday morning lineup in the Fall of 1990, The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 helped catapult the record-breaking game it was based on into video game history.
After sending the infamous King Koopa into the Banishment Zone, the heroic plumbers, Mario and Luigi, finally make it home to Brooklyn. But just when the Mushroom People think they're safe, Koopa escapes and brings with him seven of the most vile creatures the world has ever known, the Koopa Kids!
Now only the Super Mario Bros. can rid the Mushroom Kingdom of Koopa and his deviant minions... or can they?
The cover to Disc 1 features Raccoon Mario. The color is light orange.
The cover to Disc Two features King Koopa. The color is lime green.
Disc Three (Bonus Features)
On December 4, 2007, to tie in with the release of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Shout! Factory released a double-set that contained this boxset alongside the first volume of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Two of the episodes on the boxset have been affected with glitches and bugs, due to Shout! Factory being supplied defective master tapes from DIC. The NCircle version of the boxset retains the glitches and bugs due to it using the same masters as the Shout! Factory version.
