[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.


One of the first shows that I've seen on Newgrounds.
Too many memories. :')
5/5, obviously !

Great series indeed. It's a nice way to parody two alike concepts and mash it into an awesome sprite series! Although I will admit I'm a little bit disappointed with the cancellation of episode 9 and all episodes after, I'm still happy with this. It was kind of my inspiration when I first started. I don't really make sprite animations like this anymore, but it's nice to look back every now and then.
