Today is the 30th birthday of Super Mario Bros., the first game that my family ever owned and played together.
This occasion reminds me of all the Mario stuff I used to collect as a kid.
I loved my The Best of the Super Mario Bros. comic book collection.
There was a large picture of Mario in the back that I used to obsessively trace when I got bored at school.
And of course, I loved the Super Mario Bros. Super Show! (starring Captain Lou Albano!) which as I recently learned with the help of Netflix totally holds up.
And theme song is still the greatest thing in the history of the planet.
You’ll be hooked on the brothers!
