"Tutti Frutti, Oh Mario" (also known as "Tutti Frutti Mario") is the thirtieth live-action segment of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!. Its corresponding animated episode is "That Sinking Feeling" from The Legend of Zelda. It also exists under the title "Tutti Frutti Mario", and is the show's sixtieth live-action segment. Tutti Frutti Mario's corresponding animated episode is "The Missing Link" from The Legend of Zelda. Aside from alternate title cards, and a different Mario head transition, "Tutti Frutti, Oh Mario" and "Tutti Frutti Mario" are otherwise practically identical.
In Mario Brothers Plumbing, Mario is putting on some shaving cream while looking at the mirror, and a sound is heard, actually a verbal rendition of a drum pattern. He then opens the mirror to pick the razor he kept inside, but instead of another internal mirror, there's a window showing another person about to shave too. They both start shaving, apparently thinking to be looking at their own reflection, since they do the exact same movements, despite looking very differently.
Mario then asks Luigi if he changed the mirror, but he responds that can't hear him because of a noise coming out of the vent and he's afraid it's going to explode. Once Mario asks what sound Luigi's referring to, the drum pattern voice is heard again two times, while the Ratigator lip syncs to it. Luigi thinks the Ratigator is the one singing, and he tells the Ratigator to stop. Mario responds that the sound isn't coming from the Ratigator, so Luigi closes the Ratigator's vent, walks toward Clog and covers him with a bucket. He tells Clog not to come out until he gets to the chorus. Mario says that it's not even Clog, so Luigi says it may be the scarecrow, but the scarecrow responds not to be the one. Mario returns to the mirror and both him and the man in the reflection are surprised to realize they're not looking at a mirror, to which the man replies that to be the weirdest hotel room he's ever seen, having a television built in the mirror, and then sings the drum pattern song the brothers were hearing earlier. Hearing it from him, Mario recognizes the man as Little Robert.
Later, the table is set for three people and Luigi tries to hide a tape recorder in a dish of spaghetti, but he changes his mind and hides it under the bread. Mario comes in saying that Little Robert would be there soon, and asks Luigi what is he doing. Sarcastically, Luigi replies that he's weaving a navajo blanket. He explains that he's hiding the tape recorder so that if they get Little Robert to sing with them and get it on tape, they would have a collector's item. Mario replies that Little Robert is only coming to eat Italian, not to sing, but Luigi insists, telling Mario to use his brain. As they're still talking, the doorbell rings. Mario tells Little Robert to come in, and greets him, imitating his voice. After the greeting, Mario presents Luigi to Little Robert, who then invites him to the dinner table. Before they start eating, Little Robert begins his song, with Mario and Luigi singing along, though he's unimpressed by their poor performance.
Little Robert is then singing the words, "Tutti Frutti" while Mario and Luigi are dancing and responding "Oh, Mario", but once again Little Robert seems unsatisfied by their performance. Mario asks what he thinks, and Robert responds that their "Oh Mario's" were great, but they're a little weak with their drum pattern cries. Luigi then asks for little tips to help them out, and Mario says he hopes Robert to not consider them to be an imposition. Little Robert, starting to get upset, asks if he can just eat, so Mario says that he can. As the singer is about to sit at the table, Mario instead tells him to take the pan with him. To this, Little Robert gets angry, saying that they invited him for dinner, then made him sing his song, and now want him to take his food "to go". After staring at Mario a moment, he takes the pan and goes away, as Luigi thanks Little Robert for coming over. Little Robert just replies with "shut up!". After Little Robert is gone, Luigi tells Mario that they should check what they've recorded on tape, but then they find the Ratigator singing the drum pattern while the chewing the unrolled cassette tape. Upset, Luigi then sings the drum pattern and the show fades to black.
