This is the main title card for my idea for the newest animated TV series based on Nintendo's beloved "Super Mario" video game franchise! This was apparently my favorite video game series when I was a young child, and it hasn't had its fair share of American animated TV series in over 20 years. (Yes, DiC's efforts to produce a trilogy of Mario cartoon series in the early 1990s were miserable, to say the least, but this series, if brought to light, would be far better than any of them.)

The program, whose title is here abbreviated as "TANSMSE", would give the world's most famous video game protagonist, his best buds and fiercest foes their first opportunity of appearing on an animated series after a long period of TV dormancy. Produced by Amblin Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation with collaboration from Nelvana and Universal, the show would use employ traditional-style characters existing in a CGI world, much like the "Paper Mario" series. Its episodes would focus on more than just the adventures of our favorite gaming hero; there would also be plots focusing on the daily lives of many inhabitants of the Mushroom Kingdom and its neighbors. Like the RPGs, the show would have its share of comedic and humorous moments.

The series would feature an illustrious multitude of around 250 named characters. Nearly all of the primary and secondary characters of the "Super Mario" series and its spin-offs (and even some tertiary, minor characters) would return, but most individual characters and even some entire species would be given redesigns of varying degrees. However, a lot of the cast of "TANSMSE" would be new characters, most of whom are related to one or more of the returning characters from the games in any number of ways.

The voice cast for the series would comprise 50 voice actors and actresses, including actors who voiced characters in the original video games (e.g. Charles Martinet), professional cartoon voice actors and actresses, and various celebrities from TV and film.

The show would have a fully orchestrated soundtrack which would be a diversified smorgasbord of songs and compositions of all sorts: there would be remastered and rearranged versions of actual melodies from the video games, outside musical works used when necessary, and even new songs created exclusively for the show.

The series would have 190 full episodes, spanning a total of five seasons (38 episodes per season).
