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 had premiered the previous year in [[WesternAnimation/PacMan his own competing show]] Creator/{{ABC}}.

Each game appeared to exist in its own universe, with the exception of the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' and ''Donkey Kong Junior'' stories, which shared one (though they didn't overlap).

** 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.

* 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.
