This article is about the three animated stories based on well-known fairy tales. For the Super Mario animated movie, see Super Mario Bros.: Peach-hime Kyūshutsu Dai Sakusen!.

The Amada Anime Series: Super Mario Bros. is a series of animated stories. It is a collection of three original video animations based on fairy tales and Japanese folk tales and was released only in Japan on August 3, 1989. The series used characters and other elements from the Super Mario franchise in place of characters and concepts from the original fairy tales.

The series contains: Super Mario Momotarō, Super Mario Issun-bōshi, and Super Mario Shirayuki-hime. The two former episodes in the series are retellings of fairy tales of the same name, while Super Mario Shirayuki-hime is a retelling of the Western fairy tale Snow White. When the titles are read aloud by the narrator, the possessive particle の no is spoken between "Super Mario" and the name of the specific story; translated, this would render the titles as "Super Mario's Momotarō", etc.
