The story of how Mario, the greatest Video Game Character ever, came into being.

Well made movie. The Italian accent is well done, the jokes are genuinely funny, and the whole satirical sequence with Miyamoto watching as the chef throws the wine keg is inspired. I really enjoyed this Flash.

That being said, there are a few blips.

Firstly, Donkey Kong was released in 1981, but this movie claims to be from '83. No biggy, just fix it in the next version of the movie. Only mentioned it because the lack of continuity destroyed any suspension of disbelief, and made the whole joke a little less funny.

Secondly, I'd really like for there to be a credit scene that lists the authors of the other two songs in the flick, just out of a desire for integrity since you do list the one you recorded :P. Everyone knows the first one of course (The Baja Men) but the second (Chariots of Fire I think?) is more obscure and deserves a credit listing. (along with yourself and anyone who helped animate, of course!)

All in all, though, after watching your hit-and-miss career with comedy (Dangerous Dave, anyone :P), I'm really pleased to see this movie. Excellent work!

Hi Dogbreath! Nice to see one of my friends from Dosgames Forum review this movie. Anywayz overall I am very glad you liked it :-)

It's true Donkey Kong was released in 1981 and not 1983. I think I'll change that in my next update. And about the credits well... I guess I was in a bit of a rush and excited to get this thing finished and uploaded here by New Year. But really that's no excuse. You'll notice I didn't even put my own name in the movie lol. I will be adding the audio credits here soon.

And yes... I think you and the people from Dosgames Forums have been wonderful supporters and informidable critques to my humble works over the years which have helped improve not only my game movies but my art in general. Also I think you really got me interested in moving from GIF animations to FLASH and now I have a real job in the animation industry and able to support my family and my dreams :-)

So making you guys laugh means more to me than making the whole world laugh really and I hope I will continue to entertain you for the years to come....

Why is this not front page?

The beginning of this flash is THE funniest thing I've ever seen on newgrounds. I'm back to watch it now for the fifth time today.. And I still laugh my ass off every time. The jokes are so well done, and the accents are comedy gold.

You sir, deserve far more.

5th time today??? Lol thanks! I know this movie is funny and all but quite frankly I believe it doesn't deserve front page or any more than this because it was too easy and fun to make. Be sure to show it to some of your friends though lol

this shoulda got a daily today.

i'm usually offended by horribly overdone mario parodies but this didn't really go along with any of the stereotypical mario jokes. it was actually mildly amusing. good job.
