[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.

Clever MIX

Well i thought this one was a very good mix of DBZ and Mario. Nice to see a Mario flash with some good-old Mario Kart in it. A very clever and great flash job well done!! can't wait for the next Ep.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

:) < What stood out was the kart race.

I liked that a lot, but really this is it. I wouldn't give a crap about the DBZ part of it at all. In fact, the fact that this movie's story is like DBZ brings the score down IMO. I just loved the race. For the sprite medium, it was well animated, a very impressive job.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


I was skeptical of the whole dragonball z thing but it really didnt affect the animation. the sound was great and im looking forward to the next episodes

The progression was excruciatingly and unnecessarily slow... but so was DBZ's, so I guess that's the joke.

The writing/dialogue stood out... unusual for this kind of flash. Not that I'm complaining...

Looking forward to the next installment.

good and all

but maybe it shulda been a crossover to speed racer? seemed like u put alot of time into the race which was the best part.

Well, I was intending on putting the fight scene between Mario and Bowser afterwards, but I didn't have enough room, so the fight will be in part 2 instead.
