Shout! Factory has released the second volume in the show just months after the first volume was released on DVD. The Super Mario Bros. Super Show premiered in 1989 at the height of Nintendo and Super Mario Bros. fever. The show was a mix of live action and animation. Captain Lou Albano (best known for his WWF Wrestling Days) and Danny Wells starred in segments on the show as the real life Mario and Luigi. They were often visited by special guests during their segment. Volume 2 special guests include Vanna White, impressionist Fred Travalena and Rowdy Roddy Piper.
One thing I know for sure about The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! is that kids absolutely love this show. Seventeen years after the shows premiere, Mario is still one of the most recognized and relevant characters in the video game industry. With numerous Mario titles available for Nintendo Game Cube and Game Boy Advance, Mario is as popular as ever. That being said, the kids of 2006 will love this show--mine do. The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! has climbed the ranks and is their favorite after school DVD to watch.
The volume 2 DVD includes approximately 10 hours of programming on 4 discs. Each disc is stored in its own special slip disc case. In addition to the 24 episodes, the set also includes special features. Special Features:
* 4 Bonus Animated Episodes
* An Exclusive Podcast
* A Fan Costume Gallery
* Concept Art Galleries
* An Interactive Tour Of "Mario Bros Plumbing"
