So, why haven't they attempted to make a Mario cartoon since DIC's miserable efforts in the late 80s/ early 90s? Sonic's had more than his fair share, but not Mario. Everyone would watch that. I wish I could make it. This is what I'd want to use as my cast of regulars if I ever got to make one. That would be a dream gig. Even if I only got to do it as a comic. What would be really fun is making Mario shorts specifically for the Wii's Nintendo Channel. A boy can dream.

EDIT: Hi everybody! First off, thank you so much for the overwhelming response to this piece. I worked very hard on it, and it's nice to know that you folks like seeing Mario this way.
I want to warn, however, that this is not the place to tell me your opinion of various Mario games nor is it a place to tell me about imaginary Mario anime that involves Waluigi and nudity.
