Lukewarm, Uneven Production full of Sprites

This is yet another

When describing the piece, "Polished Production" comes to mind as appropriate. The Mario voice isn't dead-on, but closer than what most people can do. The frame rate and sound quality are top-notch, and some of the graphic sequences like the "Drug Pyramid" are worth a Replay. The use of a Beatles song, "Flying" is almost appropriate. The fact that there is something close to a plot in a Mario sprite spoof is almost exemplary, although you can't be fooled by the "Wonderland" part of "Mario's Wonderland"; while inspired by drugs, it lacks the allegorical commentary found in Mr. Dodgson's original literature.

Here's where the problems start: this is just another pointless drug trip, and not a terribly funny one at that. The so-called "Moral" lacks any real comic punch, and the transitions from each scene contain nothing but bland Beatles references and boring flight patterns. Despite the name, this isn't an extravagant or beautiful production during the latter half, and it just flows out of sheer dullness.

Still, seeing this material redone in a new polished way lit up my face. It made me remember that the Newgrounds Admins have voiced resolutions that few sprite cartoons (if any) would make the Front Page. Even if this somehow acquired Daily First (it did), that does not mean thist thing gets to grace the Front Page. Considering the blandness during the latter half, I suppose that's a good thing. This makes me not want to take drugs: if hallucinations are not adventurous, wherein lies the point?

Sort of funny...

But next time use your own graphics instead of stealing them.

Mario the most sucsessful video game in history

that unfortunately doesn't make up much for the lame middle part of the video, you get credit for the length of the video the wonderful voice acting, and the great animation between the sprite work. Don't take my rating the wrong way i am just giving out what i deem is right. People give out 10/10's WAY TOOOO EASILY on newgrounds im just putting into perspective where you're video stacks up with the real greats on NG.

Rated 2 / 5 stars

had potential

but nothing happened after he ate the mushroom, yes some stuff floated around and the beatles was in the background, we all get how to make a short scene to display someone is high, but seriously, put some substance in their, because u could hae replaced everything from mario's bite into the mushroom with, "then mario got high" and it honestly would have been funnier. 4 for the solid intro to what could have been an awesome story, and for the spongebob easter egg

This is so original I don't even!

But...a few points for the well-crafted scenes.
