-->--"Mama Luigi"

''Super Mario World'' (1991) was the third and final cartoon based on the ''SuperMarioBros'' franchise, and the game ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' in particular. It relocates the action to Dinosaur World, removed the Real World, [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome dropped Toad]] (since he wasn't in the game), gave many characters different names, and expanded the cast to include Yoshi and various cave people, most prominently [[TheScrappy Oogtar]]. Only lasted thirteen episodes due to ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'''s cancellation on Creator/{{NBC}}.

This show has achieved high levels of MemeticMutation from the final episode, "Mama Luigi", in which Luigi tells of how he found Yoshi.

Preceded by ''TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' and ''TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3''.
----
!''Super Mario World'' contains examples of:
* AccidentalMisnaming: "That's ''WIZARDHEIMER!!!''" [[note]]Among the various name screwups: Wizenheimer, Wizardwhatever, Wiseacre, Wisecracker, Wizenwhatchamacallit, and Wisenwhatever.[[/note]]
* AllBikersAreHellsAngels: The Dino Riders.
* AlterKocker: Wizenheimer the Magikoopa.
* AnimationBump: The animation for the ThemeTune (see below) was done by a different studio[[note]]Canvas Inc., who also did the title sequence for ''ProStars''[[/note]] than the episodes proper, and it uses a clear, smooth, professional style. The animation for the rest of the show was anything but clear, smooth and professional, with errors that don't even need frame-by-frame analysis to spot.
* AsideComment: "This is easier than talking Kootie Pie into a shopping spree!"
* BadassBoast: "Oogtar eat ghosts for breakfast!"
* BalloonBelly: Happens to Mario and Luigi when they activate P-Balloons once in separate episodes.
** This also happens to Yoshi a few times when he overindulges himself.
* BigEater: Yoshi, obviously, to the point where he even puts Mario to shame. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] at least a couple of times.
* BrokenAesop: "A Little Learning": Bullying is okay, as long as it's to people who deserve it.
* CallingTheOldManOut: Oogtar does this to King Koopa when he discovers he's giving Bob-ombs to the Koopa Kids as Christmas presents.
* CassandraTruth: In "The Yoshi Shuffle", Mario and Yoshi score the game-winning touchdown and Cheatsy the referee promptly calls them out for cheating. However, you can see Mario and Yoshi ''clearly'' go out of bounds to score, giving Cheatsy reasonable evidence to accuse them.
* CastingGag: Since Toad was left out of this series, production had John Stocker voice the replacement, Oogtar.
* CheatersNeverProsper: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in "The Yoshi Shuffle". The Marios get away with winning the football game despite cheating to score a touchdown.
* ChristmasEpisode: "The Night Before Cave Christmas".
* CutLexLuthorACheck: Koopa actually seemed to have a profitable, legit business going in "King Scoopa Koopa". Even the Mario Bros. were impressed. Of course, Koopa just had to go turn everyone into Chickadactyls ForTheEvulz.
* DemotedToExtra: The Koopa Kids appeared less frequently in this series than in ''TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'', giving way to other evildoers such as Wizardheimer and The Dino Riders. Some episodes even had Koopa scheming on his own with little or no help from the Koopa Kids.
** Koopa was subject to this as well. He was completely absent in ''four'' episodes and made brief cameos in three others.
* DisproportionateRetribution: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] when Princess threatened to have Oogtar clean the wooly mammoth stable if he didn't make Hip and Hop feel comfortable at school.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In "Fire Sale", Yoshi doesn't talk like a baby. Also, assuming that the "Ice Land" featured in that episode is the same as ''SuperMarioBros3'''s Iced Land (or even our own {{UsefulNotes/Iceland}}), it's the only time in this show that the protagonists travel outside of Dinosaur World.
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool do just that in "Gopher Bash" after Yoshi burps.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Yoshi, even moreso than in the games. In this series, he can eat fireballs, blocks and wood. He even eats and spits out Mario, Hip, Hop and King Koopa.
* EyePop: Hip's reaction to his volcano project going out of control.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: Mario
** TheLancer / [[TheSmartGuy Smart Guy]]: Luigi
** TheBigGuy / TeamPet: Yoshi
** TheChick / TeamMom: Princess Toadstool
** TagalongKid: Oogtar
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: "A Little Learning": At the beginning of the "Rockin' the High School" sequence, a cave person jumps toward the ceiling, going airborne while the everybody else dashes for the exit.
* {{Gasshole}}: Yoshi also burps several other times in the series, mostly after eating.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Also at the end of "Gopher Bash", Luigi [[NiceJobBreakingItHero punishes Yoshi for eating all the food]], telling him, "Since you ate the whole thing, now you can do the hoe thing!" Although he obviously means "hoe" as in the gardening utensil, it's pretty easy for one to joke about [[{{Mondegreen}} what it sounds like]].
* GilliganCut:
-->'''Mario:''' What're they gonna do, banish us to the lava pits?\\
''[Cut to Mario and Luigi being thrown down a pipe to a cavern]''\\
'''Mario:''' Okay, so they banished us!
* GrandFinale: "Mama Luigi" serves as a fitting finale for the cartoons as a whole.
* HandWave:
** One episode provides an explanation for why Yoshi doesn't eat certain enemies in the game, like Chargin' Chuck: They taste nasty to him.
** Another episode reveals Yoshi won't go in ghost houses in the game because he's [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes afraid of them.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Hip and Hop ''seem'' to have one of these in "A Little Learning". However, they soon turn out to be [[DevilInPlainSight Devils in Plain Sight]] who [[ForTheEvulz throw fireballs at children]].
** Hip and Hop did seem to have good intentions. Unfortunately it was King Koopa who snuck lava into the Dinosaur World.
* HelpImStuck:
** Kootie Pie gets stuck in a block of ice at the end of "Fire Sale".
** Mario tries pulling himself through Neon Castle's bars in "The Night Before Cave Christmas" only to get stuck doing so.
** Koopa becomes trapped underneath the blocks to his giant television set at the end of "Rock TV".
* IFellForHours: The TropeNamer, named for Luigi's overly long fall down a chasm in "Mama Luigi", with nothing below him but boiling lava. [[ContrivedCoincidence Luckily, he fell on a skull raft.]]
* IfItTastesBadItMustBeGoodForYou: "How come everything I don't like is good for me, and everything I do isn't?!"
* ItsAllMyFault: [[FanNickname "Emo"]] Luigi says this after Cheatsy steals the crops.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Not quite jerky, but...
-->'''Oogtar:''' Me know Oogtar bad. Cause Santa big trouble. Me no deserve present. But Oogtar thankful Santa save him from dinosaur. That present enough.
-->'''Santa Mario:''' Why, Oogtar, this isn't like you!
-->'''Oogtar:''' 'Course, if Santa want leave Oogtar present, Oogtar be very happy.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Again, Oogtar. He rushed to Yoshi's aid when Hip and Hop charged him for eating their backpacks.
* LameComeback: "Who's an egghead, eggface?"
* LargeHam: Luigi. "Good thing I found A MAAAGIC BALLOON!" "I came face to face with a FIIIYA SUMO!"
** "Mario, wherever you are, [[SkywardScream HEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLPPP!!!]]"
* {{Leitmotif}}: Since the show re-arranges most of the music from the first two Mario games, the tunes are indicative of the character or type of environment that is currently on-screen. Examples: The Valley of Bowser theme playing when Koopa's castle is shown.
* LimitedAnimation: Sometimes it gets to the point where you can't tell if what's happening is intentional or not.
* LovableCoward: Luigi and Yoshi.
* LullDestruction: Even for 1991.
* MindScrew: The episode in which Luigi is turned into a football. [[MemeticMutation He didn't make it, he is it.]]
* MixedMetaphor: "Like they say in Brooklyn: early to bed, early to catch the worm. Or is it the bagel?"
* MoodWhiplash: "Gopher Bash": Before fading to black, it goes from [[DownerEnding Luigi's disappointment at Yoshi eating the all rescued crops]] to [[EverybodyLaughsEnding Yoshi belching and everyone laughing at him]].
* MutagenicFood: Eating enough Chickadactyl Eggs will turn the consumer into one themselves.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In "Gopher Bash", The Mario Bros. succeed in rescuing the crops from Cheatsy but Yoshi eats the entire sack, meaning they have to plant everything all over again.
* OffModel: The animation quality of the show was [[IncrediblyLamePun rock bottom]] to begin with, but was brought down ever further by outrageous animation errors that frequently pop up in the shorts, some of which are so blatant that you don't even need to freeze frame the cartoon to notice them. And Mario and Luigi still have the colors of their overalls and shirts swapped in this cartoon. King Koopa still remains off model in terms of coloring.
* PaperThinDisguise:
** Happens in "Send In the Clowns", where Mario and the cavemen don't realize the clowns in King Koopa's circus are actually Rexes until one of their noses falls off.
** Also happens in "Rock TV" when Koopa is in a paper thin disguise promoting the titular product. No one can tell it's him even though several of the shows he mentions even have the name Koopa in the title.
* PragmaticAdaptation: While not for the whole series, the episode "Send In the Clowns" explains why someone as mean and nasty as King Koopa would have a helicopter with a clown.
* RunningOnTheSpot: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in "A Little Learning". While being chased by a giant Piranha Plant, King Koopa, Hip and Hop [[TooDumbToLive do this]] and the plant [[SwallowedWhole swallows them whole]].
* ScienceFair: In "A Little Learning," naturally, with the Mario Bros. as judges overseeing the cave children, Hip and Hop.
* ScoobyStack: Mario, Luigi and Yoshi do this in "Gopher Bash" before finding Cheatsy with the stolen crops.
* ShockinglyExpensiveBill: "Phone bill, amount due: $1,295.31!"
* ShoutOut: "Now go home and eat some vegetables! [[VideoGame/DrMario Dr. Mario’s]] orders!"
** One of the Dino Riders in "Born to Ride" is named [[VideoGame/MegaMan Rockman]].
* ShowWithinAShow: Subverted/parodied by having Bowser make up several shows of his own, such as his own exercise program, in "Rock TV".
* SpaceWhaleAesop: "King Scoopa Koopa". Better stay away from fast food; if you don't, you'll turn into a [[BuffySpeak crazed chicken-zombie thing]].
* SplitScreenPhoneCall: Parodied with Yoshi and Oogtar.
* TeamRocketWins: "King Scoopa Koopa" ends with Bowser actually getting away with the money he made off his restaurant.
* TemptingFate: "You can never predict when exactly a volcano is going to erupt!"
* TheSongRemainsTheSame: The show's opening theme song remains intact in English for all foreign dubs (although early editions of the show in Germany used the Plumber Rap from ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'').
* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: "[[MemeticMutation That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario!]]" ''*wheeze*''
* ThirdPersonPerson: Oogtar. Yoshi, too.
* TooDumbToLive: It's a miracle those cave-people got through regular non-Koopa problems before the Mario Bros. and the Princess showed up.
* VerySpecialEpisode: Some episodes dealt with controversial topics:
** "King Scoopa Koopa:" Nutrition and Obesity.
** "Born to Ride:" Street Gangs.
** "Rock TV:" Addiction to Television.
** "A Little Learning:" Bullying
* VillainSong: Cheatsy gets one in "Gopher Bash", called "The Cheatsy's Life".
* TheVillainSucksSong: "Kootie Pie Rap!" in "Fire Sale".
* WholeEpisodeFlashback: "Mama Luigi". Notably, the story told in the flashback is an adaptation of the game, told from Luigi's perspective. To fit 11 minutes, however, the story is greatly shortened.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Yoshi is terrified of ghosts and water.
* WildTake: Cheatsy Koopa in "Gopher Bash".
* YouAreNotReady: Every single attempt Mario, Luigi or the Princess make to improve the cave-people's lives end this way; the FantasticAesop seems to be that, when it comes to stuff like [[BrokenAesop agriculture and the wheel]], that [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow These Are Things Neanderthal Man Was Not Meant to Know]].
* YouNoTakeCandle: The cave people and any dinosaur that talks.
