Greetings and a belated happy new year to you all. It's been a long time coming, but the first episode of the Super Mario Bros. Z reboot is finally here. I did want to release it sooner, but life tends to get in the way at times.

I can't believe it has almost been a whole decade since I started work on this series. For those who are familiar with the original version, this episode combines the events of the first two episodes. I had always intended for them to be one whole episode, but due to technological limitations at the time, I had to split them up.
Fast forward 10 years and now I was finally able to create the episode like I had always truly envisioned. Now with much better quality across the board.
My Youtube account will be my main profile for uploading these new episodes. But I figured I would also upload them to Newgrounds since this is the site where I first made a name in the animation community.

I'm hoping to give the rest of the series the same treatment. But for now, please enjoy the first episode of the reboot.
Thanks to everyone for your support and patience.

The greatest movie on this platform.

i actually loved the original and i was pissed when it stopped even tho it was legitimate to do so, fans can be nightmares, and to si it reborn makes me very happy.
although i think the simplicity of the original gave it charm, the intro is awesome and the rebooted episode has great qualities
in all cases, Alvin-Earthworm please keep having fun, i cant wait to see when the other episode will come out :)

Great stuff

The mario theme was awsome, I do however think the "ZOOM-IN" effect could be changed it really distorted areas but besides that this was a cool movie, Ok so I have gathered that you know what you are doing here there could be a few changes along the way a here and there, But I do like what you have going on here, its good on all fronts.

The zoom in effect could be changed maybe not so close but I understand the intent of it.


are you working alone on this ?

Holy fuck, this needs to be on T.V, Netflix, or hulu. There is nothing good for kids to really watch anymore i can't wait to show my son and niece when they wake up in a few hours. Y'all did an amazing job an if y'all is still making these shows, you need to be making good money for your time an effort. I rate it 10/10.
