Uncle Tony, The Super Mario Bros. Movie

Uncle Tony is an uncle of Mario and Luigi, appearing in The Super Mario Bros. Movie. He is brothers with Papa Mario and Uncle Arthur.[1]


The Super Mario Bros. Super Show![edit]

An Uncle Tony was first briefly mentioned by Mario in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Glasnuts". As Mario and Luigi are discussing how to divide a pizza evenly, Mario brings up the concern that if Uncle Tony showed up he would eat more than his fair share, thus forcing them to order more pizza.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie[edit]

In The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Uncle Tony is shown living with Papa Mario, Mama Mario, Uncle Arthur, Aunt Marie, Mario, Luigi, their grandfather and niece all in the same household. He sports large glasses, a curly hairstyle, and a gap in his teeth and he is seen wearing a blue colored tracksuit jacket. He appears with Uncle Arthur during dinner mocking Mario and Luigi concerning their Super Mario Bros. Plumbing commercial. They both say various insults about their commercial and laugh that they should not leave their "day job". When Mario hurtfully storms off after his father accuses him of dragging Luigi down in his potential failure, Uncle Tony, along with the rest of the family, gives the father disapproving looks.

In a deleted scene, after Mario and Luigi smash through a brick wall while trying to fix the water main, Mario suggests giving up and going home before Uncle Tony finishes all the cannolis.[2]
