[UPDATE 2 - 01/10/08] Wow, hard to believe how far things have come since I first started work on this series. Thanks for all the support over the past few years guys. Much appreciated. ^^

[UPDATE] Daily feature and front page.
What can I say? Thanks very much everyone! =^_^=

My first full length sprite animation.
I've seen many Super mario/DBZ parodies on Newgrounds, and they weren't very impressive. So I decided to make my own series with X number of parts.
The story will be based on the android saga through to the Cell games saga. Although it isn't very evident in this first part.
This episode is based on the episode where Frieza returned after he was defeated. Although, i'm aiming to make the story much different so it suits the Mario characters.
I was intending to make this episode longer, plus add a fight scene between Bowser and Mario, but I went overboard with the race scene and didn't have enough room to add it.
But i'm happy with the result anyway. And part 2 will follow along shortly. (I hope)
Anyway. Enjoy the show.

[EDIT 2] Found better sprites for the chaos emeralds, so I replaced them.


Im a fool for these sprite animations

It's great to see where this awesome series started! It is sad you cancelled it. Well, at least you did a remake. That's better than this. I appreciate the great sprite work. I finally understand where the title comes from.

The plots were in fact inspired by "Dragonball Z". It's still weird you wouldn't have Sonic in the title. I'm impressed at how mobile these characters are even though they're just sprites. Yeah, we're familiar with this scenario now. I look forward to new episodes of any kind for this.

I remember watching this when I was around 5 or 6 years old. This brings back so much memories.
