Mario is one of five protagonists of the three Mario animated series. He is a plumber having Luigi for a brother and wishing with his friends to save the Mushroom Kingdom from King Koopa.

He was voiced by the late Captain Lou Albano in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! and Walker Boone in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and the Super Mario World cartoon.

Differences from Mario

  • Like his incarnation of the film/anime Peach-hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen! and some others, he wears red overalls and a blue shirt.
    • Similarly, its fire shape wears white overalls and a red shirt, unlike the opposite in games, and sometimes yellow and orange clothing.
      • However, in the Super Mario World series, Fire Mario adopts the colors it will have in all future games.
  • Mario speaks normally and in full sentences, unlike games where he only proves a few words from time to time.
  • He is shown as hating Bowser/King Koopa, frequently insulting him, while his gaming counterpart does not particularly hate him and is willing to ally himself with him whenever necessary.
  • He sometimes fights with Luigi, something that would never happen in the games where brothers are extremely tight-knit.
  • While in games Mario is not afraid of anything, his Cartoon counterpart has shown some fear, briefly that of water.

Trivia

  • In "The Ten Koopmandments", he takes the role of Moses.
  • In Mario Golf for the Nintendo 64, one of Wario's costumes is based on Mario's outfit from the Mario cartoons. This also happens in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate where Mario's color scheme from the Mario cartoons appears as one of Wario's alternate costumes.
  • In Super Mario Odyssey, the Classic Suit is based on Mario's outfit from the Mario cartoons.
  • During Mario's transformation sequence into a Super Mario, Mario's color scheme from the Japanese cover and the Arcade cabinet of Mario Bros. is seen.
  • In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! and in the first four episodes of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, Mario's hair color is black, but in the later episodes of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and throughout the Super Mario World cartoon, his hair color is brown like his gaming counterpart.
  • Mario appears in every episode of the Mario cartoons except "Life's Ruff".
