Part 1 of 4. The death of a hero forces the Mushroom Kingdom to get revenge.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Yep, this is one of Randy Solem's most viewed cartoons for a reason. It has great emotional value to it. I really do feel bad for Mario. The music was just perfect. At first, I thought this would just end before the main battle. It actually started some of it! I am so glad it went the extra mile.

That "Titanic" music still gets to me. Why did it say "To be concluded"? There were three more in the series! I liked when Yoshi crapped out that one guy. The sprite work still holds up well, probably because most of us don't use it anymore.

Eleven years later and still as amazing as fresh material. This needs to show up first under NG's greatest. I'm already stuck on it because I'm a Mario Bros fan, but this has an epic story. I've seen a few epic spins on Mario Bros stories, but this one done in sprites carries a lot of relevance to the games and substance.

This is an absolute Classic.This has always been my "holy bible" of Mario sprite movies, it brings back memories. I was just a bit more than a child when I got inspired by your works and began making my first sprite movies, but the quality of yours has always been out of my reach. Thank you for everything, Randy.
