** "Fire Sale", the first episode of ''Super Mario World'', takes place almost entirely in Ice Land, a location from ''Super Mario Bros. 3''.[[note]]In terms of the shows' game counterparts, fire-spitting Piranha Plants exist only ''Super Mario Bros. 3'' and not ''Super Mario World'' as well, suggesting that this episode may be a RecycledScript from the previous show.[[/note]]

Saturday morning cartoons titled ''TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' and ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld'' were later made (without live-action segments) and would air alongside ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' on Creator/{{NBC}}. All three shows are now available on [=DVD=]. See also ''WebAnimation/SuperMarioBrosTheParodySeries'' for TheAbridgedSeries version.

Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedLoveInterest: Massively subverted, likely due to the fact that Mario & Luigi are middle aged in these cartoons(they'd have to be since the live action segments establish it) and Toadstool is young enough to be Mario's daughter(the production bible gives her age at the start of the series as 17). In fact, there was never an attempt to give Toadstool a love interest, or really much attempt in these cartoons to have romance at all.

* CanonImmigrant: Luigi's CowardlySidekick personality debuted here. Toad's oddly screechy voice is eerily similar to the gibberish sound Toadfolks make in recent games.
** The games version of Bowser shares several traits of King Koopa from game to game (eg. DeadpanSnarker moments, a loyally CardCarryingVillain, genuinely love for his offspring).

* {{Flanderization}}: Big Mouth seemed to originally earn his moniker from being an ObnoxiousSnarker (a role that was admittedly sorta redundant between him and the other mouthy Koopa Kids). By SMW he is a LargeHam MotorMouth who drives his siblings crazy by ''never shutting up''.

* AbortedArc: The ''Super Show'' constantly reminds us that the Mario Brothers are [[BigApplesauce from Brooklyn]], with the live action segments representing their past lives there and the ExpositoryThemeTune to each episode documenting how they were sucked through a pipe into the Mushroom Kingdom. Many episodes, such as "Brooklyn Bound", focus on their [[TheHomewardJourney attempt to return home]]. By the time ''The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3'' rolls around, RefugeeFromTVLand is a common plot device, with the Mario Bros. themselves traveling to "The Real World" in many episodes, but they don't seem particularly interested in staying there anymore.

** The intro meanwhile has some very good animation that one can think it wasn't for the show.

** ''WhatAnIdiot/WheelOfFortune'' is referenced twice. King Koopa hosts a spoof in ''Super Show'' and he spies on a family watching the show in ''Super Mario World''.
** ''StarTrek'' gets a reference in every cold open to the ''Super Show'' in the form of the "Plumber's Log" Mario narrates to himself at the beginning of each episode.
** Documenting ''all'' the ShoutOuts in the ''Super Show'' would be a task daedalian in scope. Nearly every episode is a reference (either a full-blown WholePlotReference, or an InNameOnly reference in the form of a PunnyName title) to a film (such as "The Mark of Zero" for {{Zorro}}, "Toad Warrior" for ''MadMax 2: The Road Warrior'', or "Crocodile Mario" for ''CrocodileDundee''), and the ones that aren't are usually a reference to folklore, literature, celebrities or something else.

** The cab driver from "Flatbush Koopa" (''Super Show'') makes a cameo in "Recycled Koopa" (''The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3''). Possibly a case of reusing character designs, as he was never more than incidental character.



** "Rock TV" opens with King Koopa reminiscing on what he learned "while [he] was in the Real World." Presumably, he's talking about his [[RefugeeFromTVLand experiences]] in many episodes of ''The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3''.
