The problem most people have with the "its all a dream" endings is they don't get it. super Mario bros 2 took place entirely in a dream. its the only logical way to bring that area into this movie because Nintendo did it first in Mario bros 2! it literally all was a dream. That's why Bowser is confused in the previous movie as to why Mario is being so aggressive. that's why Randy made that choice. Yeah he knew there would be people a little butt-hurt about that choice, but its what made sense in the Mario universe. even though the dancing and gore didn't but he was just having fun with it at that point. come on he had fun with it. but tried to keep it slightly grounded in that universe he loved so much.

I don't know, I kind of find the "The Whole Thing Was a Dream" twist kind of tired, and a total middle finger to the audience of the last 2 parts. Nonetheless, its an okay continuation with some swift and snappy sprite animation.

I haven't watched a Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom video since 2004, when I was 12 years old.. This is my first visit to Newgrounds, and thus my first hearing of Randy's passing... This made my heart sink. I loved Randy's work when I was a child. I wish he was still here to share his art with us..

I love this episode! In fact, I think it might be the best in the whole series. I guess it's only because he showed the strongest emotions here. He really did start the action with Mario. It's so funny how Wart was originally a dream himself! He inverted the entire origin.

The sprite work really holds up. Well, I guess few people use that anymore. Mouser makes a great villain. The length is perfect too. RIP you wonderful animator.

wow this movie is awesome and the 4th :D
