Trivia: The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Dub Name Change: The writers made up their own names for the Koopalings, called the Koopa Kids in the actual show, before the English version of The Manual was final. That, and some of the references Nintendo ended up using would likely go over most kids' heads anyway.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Famed ABC TV announcer Ernie Anderson handled the Opening Narration: "It is a legend no one will forget..."
    • Also, Hip and Hop are voiced by Tara Strong.
    • Toadstool is voiced by the first of the four or so people to voice Usagi, and G3 Cheerilee.
    • Kootie Pie was voiced by Paulina Gillis, who voiced Spryte in the Zelda cartoon.
      • You may also know her as Tabitha St. Germain. Kootie Pie particularly sounds like a younger Rarity in Drama Mode.
    • Dan Hennessey, who voiced Bully, also voiced Chief Quimby and Brave Heart Lion.
  • The Other Darrin: Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool all got new voice actors (Walker Boone, Tony Rosato and Tracey Moore).
  • What Could Have Been: Going by concept art in the writers bible included on the official DVD set, Mario was apparently going to use the Tanooki Suit at one point, but it never made it into the final product.
  • Working Title: "Kootie Pie Rocks" was originally titled "Strawberry, Chocolate or Vanilli?"
