I found this to be a great cartoon! The "Staying Alive" music at the end seemed pretty out of place. I still thoroughly enjoyed this. I especially like the sprite work. It was great to see Mario being done in a hand drawn manner here. I guess sprites are like the 2D of animated movies.
We just don't use them anymore. The artwork really holds up. It's great o see all this come together. I lost count of the death toll when Bowser killed all those mushroom guys. You have some author's comments too.
