The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 was based on the hugely successful NES game, Super Mario Bros. 3. It was aired as two episodes along with the second season of Captain N: The Game Master. See that guide for the Captain N cast list and episodes. The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 was produced by DIC.
Words to the Opening Sequence:
It is a legend no one will forget. Everyone thought
King Koopa had left the Mushroom Kingdom.
And then his Doom Ship attacked! King Koopa
was back with the greatest danger ever known:
his Koopa kids. Using their new super powers,
the Super Mario Brothers rescued Princess
Toadstool and beat back the evil Koopa family.
King Koopa: I'll get those plumbers!
At first the Koopalings did not have real names because at the the time when the company was making the cartoon they did not know what their names would be, so they made up names for each of the Koopa kids. So the Koopa kids not having their real names in this cartoon is not a mistake or goof.
Here are their real and cartoon names:
Wendy = Kootie Pie
Larry = Cheatsy
Ludwig = Kooky
Morton = Big Mouth
Roy = Bully
Lemmy = Hip
Iggy = Hop
NOTE: For continuity's sake, please refer to the koopalings by their cartoon names in your submissions.
Also King Koopa (Bowser) not looking the way he does in the games is not a goof either.
NOTE: Though he was called Bowser a few times in this cartoon, he is mainly known as King Koopa, so the guide will usually refer to him as Koopa for continuity's sake. Please refer to him as Koopa in your submissions.
NOTE: On the cartoons, Princess Toadstool was never called Peach (her name in all the current games), so the guide will usually refer to her as Princess or Princess Toadstool for continuity's sake. Please refer to her as Princess in your submissions.
