[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.

Great Movie Dude!

I still remember the first time watching this series.

The animation wasn't as great as I hear some of the other parts of the series are, but this was still a pretty enjoyable experience. I liked the idea of incorporating Sonic into it as well and this episode provided some nice setup and world-building. I liked the race, it was very fun and showed us a bit of the dynamic between Mario and Luigi as well as Wario and Waluigi, which is always a bonus. I liked the humor as well with Luigi freaking out to fix the car and the Hallelujah when he pulled out the mushroom. The Lakitu guessing Bowser's "plan" was also great. The end teaser text was nice, too, and went with the wacky charm of this. The choice of music was also great. I felt like the start was a bit slow, though.
Overall, this was very fun to watch, I can't wait to see what the next installments are like!

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.
