[UPDATE] Thanks for front page and Daily 1st again, people! It's good to know that people are still enjoying the series despite the delays.
Also, a special thank you to all those that have sent me donations. It's really helping me out. =)

[EDIT] Okay, with any luck all of the problems have been fixed now. Many of you may need to clear your browser cache in order to see the update. Chances are there are still some bugs I've missed, so if you find any, send me a PM.

Thanks ever so much to Tom Fulp for raising the upload limit for me. ^^
Wow. One year already, huh? Time sure flies when you're not having fun.
At least I didn't keep you guys waiting for 16 months this time. lulz!
Anywho, this episode has been the bane of my existence for the past few months. Trying to build up the motivation to work on it after all the stuff I've been through recently.
I experimented a lot with this episode. Mostly with Swift 3D for the Doomship and the hand drawn close ups. I did start using high res sprites for the close ups early on, but I later opted for vector drawings because they're clearer and quicker to make.
Back to the 3D stuff though, I am aware that the Doomship looks kinda primitive, but personally I kinda like it. It reminds me of the old Starfox game on the SNES. Plus I didn't like the idea of fully rendering it which would have made the file size skyrocket.
Anyways, I've kept you waiting long enough. Thanks to all those who have been patient and enjoy the latest episode of Super Mario bros Z!


I remember watching this such a long time ago. Feels like yesterday. This series is still one of my favourites to this day ^.^

Rating for each episode :

Episode 1 - 6/10 (Not bad for the beginning of a new series)

Episode 2 - 8/10 (Awesome Sequel)

Episode 3 - 5/10 (Meh, could've been better)

Episode 4 - 7/10 (Pretty Awesome)

Episode 5 - 8/10 (Amazing)

Episode 6 - 9/10 (Absolutely wonderful)

Episode 7 - 8/10 (Amazing)


Episode 9 - 2/10 (Terrible, Just Terrible. A huge disappointment -_- *sigh*)

This is my idea. I'm sure there are so many fans of this series and I know that a lot of those fans were disappointed considering the fact that the series practically ended and was left unfinished. I wanted the series to continue so I decided I wanted everybody to know that the series ended because Alvin Earthworm couldn't produce anymore. That doesn't mean it's over. I just want a fan to take the time and produce and reproduce more episodes for the series so the disappointment goes away. Making a sprited flash that's longer than 10 minutes is hard but Alvin made 8 episodes in less than 4 years. If he can do so good, so can we. As long as we try and do our best, I'm pretty sure we make the series of SMBZ come back to life.

Even though I hate hash tags, I guess I have no choice to do so myself

P.S - For those who saw a review on this video and the username was WITHERSPACE, I'm actually WITHERSPACE, I just turned over to SpaceWither because I forgot the password for my WITHERSPACE Account.

One of the best movie series EVER on Newgrounds... it's a shame that the series has ended, although it might get redone... Anyway, this is just fucking amazing. This series is so nostalgic to me, I love it

It's really sad that Alvin Earthworm stop continuing making these awesome videos. It's really a disappointment on episode 9 which was really a short piece of crap. It just doesn't seem right that you can just end a series like that. I read somewhere that he is going to make a remake, but he stated that Captain Basilisx won't be in the remake which is really disappointing because a lot of people really liked him as a villain. After seeing Episode 9, I was really disappointed. Since I kept reading some other stuff about Alvin not being able to continue his series, I just stopped caring about SMBZ. The same also goes with Sonic RPG. The Movie clip was disappointing as well because it was less than 15 minutes, and getting to play the actual Sonic RPG 9. Another Example would be Sonic Final Fantasy X. Personally I think the 6th episode has been around for nearly 6 or maybe even 8 years, and yet, still no 7th episode. I really loved the series of SMBZ, and I really want it back. I know the series had to stop, but deep down inside me, I still have a little hope. Thanks Alvin for entertaining me for so long. I love your videos :)
