* AdaptationalHeroism: In ''[[VideoGame/QBert Q*bert]]'' (the video game) Sam and Slick are enemy characters, undoing Q*Bert's work by changing the blocks back to their original colors. In the cartoon, they're good guys.
** Also for ''Donkey Kong's'' title character, at least upgrading him to AntiVillain status: he had no animosity toward anyone, least of all Mario and Pauline, and was actually quite friendly and playful. He just didn't want to be stuck in a circus.

* CanonImmigrant: The new characters from the ''Pitfall!'' cartoon were then used in the game's first sequel, ''Pitfall! 2'', and even showed up in some later games (such as ''Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure'').
* ChasteToons: Allegedly, Pauline is revealed to be Mario's niece in the show. This becomes HilariousInHindsight when you realize that this would make Luigi her father.

This series was unusual in that it collected characters from different video game companies. The character most obviously lacking, of course, was VideoGame/PacMan, who already had [[WesternAnimation/PacMan his own competing show]][[note]]which premiered the previous year[[/note]] on Creator/{{ABC}}.
