Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Yoshi, (Yoshi)
Had a very shiny nose, (like a Pokeball)
And if you ever saw it, (saw it)
You would even say it glows. (like a TV screen)
All of the other Yoshis, (Yoshis)
Used to laugh and call him names. (like a Pikachu!)
They never let poor Rudolph, (Rudolph)
Join in any Yoshi games. (like Smash Brothers!)
Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Mario came to say, (Here we gooo!)
"Rudolph with your nose so bright,
"Won't you guide-me to-the Princess tonight?"
Then all the Yoshis loved him, (loved him)
As they shouted out with glee, (Yosh-ee!!)
"Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Yoshi, (Yoshi)
"You'll go down in his-tor-y!" (Like Shigeru Miyamoto)
- Season's Greetings from SJ64
David Dayton: Jingle Bells, Bowser sm... never mind.
There have been a few Mario related things that have passed my mind every
now and then, and I think it's time to ask YOU about 'em.
1. Back when Super Mario Kart was released, Wal-Mart had a demonstration of
the game. From the demo, I distinctly remember a race track surrounded
entirely by lava, littered with Thwomps, and had a black backdrop. Now that
I own the game, this aforementioned track is nowhere to be found. Was this a
track from a beta version? Is it still in the game? Am I just senile? Should
I stop drinking this 'water' liquid people have been talking about?
2. After playing Space Fever II in Game Boy Camera, I noticed one the bosses
resembled Mario quite a bit. At that moment, I also remembered that Jumpman
was named after Mario Segali. And THEN, I recalled that a few Nintendo
employees are in the Game Boy Camera. I don't have a picture of the boss, but
could this boss actually be a photo of Mario Segali?
I don't recall a level with a black backdrop, but some of the Bowser castle
levels featured lava and Thwomps. In other news, I just picked up one of the
Donkey Kong 64 promo carts. Heheheh...
Mario Segali was never a Nintendo employee -- he was the landlord. While it
is possible that the face is his, I somewhat doubt it.
1. did you know that Harry Potter sort of makes fun Playstation, it says
that Harrys cousin Dudley who is REALLY FAT!! was on a diet and got so mad
because he was sneaking snacks and his parents said if he did it again they
would take away his poket money, he got so mad he threw his playstaion out
the window, then later in a letter Harry explained what a playstaion was and
he said some thing like this "he got so mad he threw his playstion out the
window, (thats a sort of computer thing you play games on, really silly
2. I though Deezer said he would be putting up hints about the seceret page
but its been a wile and he has not don anything.
3. Do you think that lava lava island and yoshi's island are the same thing?
4.im shure you have herd this before but on the simsons they were at this
convenion that sold all sorts of uselless stuff and there is a ape standing
there and he chuckes a barrle at this guy and he goes "you still got it
donkey kong" or someing like that
David Dayton: Yep on 1. Deezer is slow for 2. No on 3. 4 is listed.
how long do you hop to stay on-line for? As another mario fan I hope
that you guys stay here for a long time. And one other thing do you
have a fan story section?
- Adam Jackson
David Dayton: We'll be online until Deezer goes nuts or bankrupt.
Fan Fiction? Of course
we have a section for it.
Will Paper mario and Super Smash Bros. be ported on the gameboy advance
David Dayton: I doubt they will be ported. I can imagine some kind of
Mario RPG being done on the GBA, though.
Regarding "Some Goober's" message in the December 14th mailbag, all the
characters in SSB:M ARE Nintendo characters.
Mario and Donkey Kong first
appeared in the arcade game "Donkey Kong,"
obviously a Nintendo title.
The ColecoVision games were ports of the arcade
version, and were owned
and developed by Nintendo. Just because they appeared
on that system, it
doesn't mean they aren't Nintendo characters. I mean, if
you don't think
Mario is a Nintendo character, I think you're high on Super
He -is- copyrighted...
...and the same goes for Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf. The CD-I games were
result of a deal made with Phillips involving the ill-fated Super NES
Drive, and they were made with Nintendo's permission. These characters
still owned by Nintendo, and if you checked the copyrights on the
titles, you would see this.
Donkey Kong I explained above, but let me add that the character model that
you see in SSB:M is done by Rareware. And Rareware is owned in part by
Nintendo. And Donkey Kong is ALSO copyrighted by Nintendo. Even if Nintendo
sold its majority shares of Rare, they couldn't use DK.
>> (Correct me if I'm wrong) If I'm right, Pokémon doesn't belong to
I'm correcting you now. If you look at a Pokémon copyright notice, you'd
Nintendo, Creatures, and Game Freak. Although Game Freak's Satoshi
created Pokémon and Creatures helped develop the game, Nintendo
copyrights on all of the Pokémon.
A large amount of HAL Labs is owned by Nintendo, much like Rareware. Anyway,
HAL Labs developed Super Smash Bros. Melee in the first place. Of course
can use their own character!
Now, the Mega Man family of games was developed and copyrighted by Capcom.
Capcom is not owned by Nintendo AT ALL, and Mega Man cannot rightly be
considered part of the Nintendo family of games. Capcom goes where the money
is, not to any loyal company or whatever. PSX was really ahead last console
war, and I think that GameCube will be ahead this time, so expect Capcom
jump on the bandwagon. DON'T expect Mega Man in a Smash Bros. game,
they sign a deal with Nintendo. This is capitalism, "Some Goober."
should be, but what IS.
David Dayton: That's basically what I would say. However, I believe
Goober did clarify that if I meant Mega Man wasn't owned by Nintendo, I was
right. I think he got annoyed, thinking I meant that Mega Man didn't
deserve the right to be in SSBM.
In the last mailbag some guy asked what Luigi's voice actor in the SMW
cartoon was. Acording to The Internet Movie Database Tony Rosato did
Luigi's voice in the SMB3 & SMW cartoons, while in the SMBSS Danny Wells
did Luigi's voice & played him in the live action skits of the show as
well. (I liked Luigi's SMBSS voice better)
I personally think Nintendo
gave Mario a really ------ voice in the
games. (The cartoon voices were sooooo much better)
David Dayton: When I first heard Mario's voice in Super Mario 64, I
was annoyed. However, it has grown on me. Of all the voices currently being
used, the Mario one is the best. Luigi's voice keeps changing, but the more
recent ones are decent (Mario Tennis, Super Mario Advance, Luigi's Mansion,
Super Smash Bros. Melee).
By any chance do you know if the Donkey Kong Country cartoon still comes
and if it does can u give me the time and channel? Also have you played
Luigi's mansion or Pikmin yet and if you have, what are your opinions on
them? I've played both. Luigi's mansion is good but it's kinda short.
Pikmin is also good but the days just go by too fast and it's ridiculous.
Don't you think so too.
David Dayton: I liked Luigi's Mansion, but it does lack in replay
value. Pikmin is good, but after I got SSBM it hasn't been played. I have
no idea what channels might still carry the DKC cartoons, but they would be
in reruns now -- in related news, I just got my hands on a copy of the
Donkey Kong Country - Legend of the Crystal Coconut video.
I don't know if this was ever suggested by anyone, but why dont we all start
some sort of giant letter written to Nintendo, saying they should re-release
the top 100 original NES games on one gamecube disk. Or something to that
effect. Maybe just the top 10. Because its rare that someone has a working
nintendo or one that doesnt require being blown in for an hour prior to use.
They could just put the gamesin their original 8-bit form, except now they
would actually work. I think its a great idea and want to start some sort
of petition. Basically anyone whos a fan of video games would buy it.
Alright thanks for reading!
David Dayton: Animal Planet for the GameCube will have several original
NES titles on it. I'm expecting some NES titles to be ported to the GBA in
some form as well.
I dunno if you guys care or not, but I found some manga pictures of Mario
covers, if you want me to send them, say "I", and what is up with Luigi's
Mansion? And why is it so easy to beat?!
- Debbi Kyer
David Dayton: I
Hey, i have some questions:
1.What ever happened to MegaßĄte2.
2.from all these people, which one(s)
Deezer,david dayton, J.J.
3.Aren't you glad SSB:M is out?
David Dayton: MB is currently locked away on the moon of Endor, teaching
Ewoks the finer art of cleaning an NES. Oh, and I think we are all glad that
Super Smash Bros. Melee is out. Fanboys... whatever do you mean?
Ill tell you why Super Mario 3 is better than Super Mario World. Two things
make the difference.
1. In Super Mario 3, you can get the green shoe. That kicks ---.
2. In super mario world, you use a stupid cape to fly, but in super mario
you turn into a raccoon! That rocks! Even better is the Tanooki suit!
cool, you can turn into stone.
David Dayton: I agree. Don't forget the Hammer Bros. suit, though.
Here are some more questions:
1. Can you confirm Super Mario Bros 3 will be on Mario Advance 3?
2. Any more news on Mario Sunshine or Mario 128? (By the way, Shigsy IS still
working on Mario 128. It says it in an interview in this japanese magazine.)
3. I think Donkey Kong Country 2 is better than Super mario 3 and Mario
world. Do you agree?
4. Do you know when Mario advance 2 will be released in Europe?
5. What new features will Mario advance 2 have? Will you be able to play as
Toad or Peach?
6. That's it. Please try to answer soon. And check out my site-
David Dayton: 1) No, I can't confirm it. I've heard it often, though.
2) Nothing new on either front. I've heard that Mario 128 is being worked
on, and I've also heard that Pikmin is the game that -was- originally Mario
128. 3) No, I don't. 4) No, I don't. 5) From what I've heard, SMW:MA2
features a "Find the Yoshi/Princess Coins" bit, the Yoshis are a little
different in their locations, and Luigi controls and jumps differently.
David Dayton: Thanks. I remembered reading that somewhere... I just
couldn't remember the link.
Hellow Deezer/Dave/JJ/Mushroom Boy.
I'm a staffer at a mario site called MB Gold, my site and I are
combing the internet for websites and message boards to help us bring back
Mario cartoons. Go to
www.cartoonnetwork.com/feedback and write to them
how much you want mario cartoons. We started Dec. 2, And i beileve at least
500 people have gone and written. It would help if you did so. Not just
you staffers at TMK, but everybody. Please!
- Kyle, Greg, and Realgtx
David Dayton: Sounds interesting. There may well be a chance of the
Cartoon Network running them. What does the Cartoon Network run in the way of
80's/90's cartoons, anyway?
I think David is cool, he hate's Playsation (not good writer, but it sucks)
but like's the RE series, but Capcom is bringing it to Gamecube, and only for
Gamecube, so this means...:
1. Capcom likes Nintendo then PSX and PS2.
2. Capcom think's PSX sucks because Mega Man sucked on it.
3. Mega Man would be more better on Gamecube.
And X-BOX sucks to.
- Matt Koopa
David Dayton: Of course I'm cool. ;)
A response to Josh Nickerson (or whatever his name is cuz he said that wasnt
it) You should have a little respect for people!
Geez you shoulda just E-Mailed him back instead of putting his letter
on your website! If you have something bad to say dont say it at all! Check
this out where he posts!
some people have somethings to say about it! Dont put someone down to make
you look good!
- fahlman.ca I WANT YOU TO RESPOND!
David Dayton: If anyone cares, go see the Dec. 14th mailbag.
I was just wondering where the buttons are to make the transparent
blocks with the exclamation mark solid?
David Dayton: In Super Mario World? Find the Block Fortresses.
Here we go again.
Statement 1. chuppersoN weirD: I don't know, I like Zelda better than Peach.
Question 1. What do those Monopoly-space looking things on the edge of the
"board" in the 100 Marios demo mean?
Statement 2. Elves are cool. (I've been saying this all day.)
Question 2. Have they come out with any screenshots of Mario Kart or Party
for GCN yet?
Statement 3. One plus one equals one on a bun.
Question 3. Should the Mario movie have a sequel? Or should they just make
completely unconnected Mario movie?
David Dayton: 1) I dunno. 2) Not really -- but there was a Mario Kart
promo for the GC. 3) Probably not.
I have found a glitch that is in SMB2 in SMAS.When you get a key, quickley
throw the key down and run under it and the key will shake and start jumping
up and down until it goes high to get onto another ledgeand stopbut this
does not work on SMA version.
David Dayton: I think that is intentional, to make sure that a character
can't get stuck under a key.
Wassap TMK people. I got a couple of questions 4 u...
1.) I want a definite answer from all of ya- Who iz better: mario or luigi?!
2.) David Dayton said in a previous mailbag dat he owns a dreamcast... so
wuz wunderin: has he played dead or alive 2 and if so, did he like it?
3.) What iz ur opinion on mario sunshine? Will it be the SM64 sequel we've
longed for, or another spin off, or what?!?
4.) Do u think Mario and Sonic will ever really star in the same game?
5.) Do u like Sonic at all?
6.) Who iz ur favorite Street Fighter (if any)? and....
7.) This one's 2 David Dayton: As a dreamcast owner, have u ever had a
problem with it where ur playin a game, and all of a sudden, it acts like
reset it and goes to the dreamcast main menu thing (The one with the
controller, VMU, and all that)? It happened to mine, and I (in a fit of
anger, and using the universal masculine repair method...) hit it really
really hard. But before I did, it made noise and stuff whenever that
and now, it seems to be my luck that it gives out rite when i need
Any thoughts/responses? Or where can I go to get it fixed?
David Dayton: 1) Depends on the level. 2) Nope -- never played it.
3) It looks neat. 4) Nope. 5) Not really, although some of his games are
decent. 6) I did pretty well as Chun Li. 7) Never had that problem.
I went to Target today and was looking through the toys and found three
and Watch games that Nintendo has re-released. They are Mario's Cement
Factory, Super Mario Bros and Donkey Kong. They are much smaller than the
originals, but game play is exactly the way I remember it. Do you guys know
about these? If not you should check them out
- Terry Norris
David Dayton: I got a copy of Mario's Cement Factory. I want the SMB
one. I'll trade if anyone has SMB and wants MCF. Hmm... SRP records... what
are you? Ever think of trying to get the U.S. rights to releasing some
soundtracks? Perhaps the Video Game Orchestra recordings ? ;)
Hello! What gameboy Advance games do you own? And do you like Toonami?
For New Year's Eve-il, I voted for Treize. ( I would have voted for Lady
Une if she was on the list
- Trasukira the Blue Yoshi
P.S: I am female incase your wondering (...incase you thought I was a guy
in love with Lady Une. hehee)
David Dayton: What GBA games do I own? SMA, MKSC, Jurrasic Park Park Creator,
Advance Wars, Castlevania, Chu Chu Rocket, and some others. Not sure... mostly
some games I got cheaply and never played. Female, hmmm? If you are 18 or more,
send me a line. Heheheh...
there's one question I really need to have answered. Has there ever been
european version of "Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World"? And if
how was it released? As a normal game? Limited edition? Prize in a contest
David Dayton: I don't think it was released. The SMAS+SMW cart was a
combo game that was sold with some SNES bundles in the U.S.A. only -- not in
I think that it's great that you've received you 1,000,000th hit but,
come on! Isn't it about time you told us how to find the secret page?
- The Dover Tornado
David Dayton: You know, I never understood why everyone wants to find
that page so badly...
First off, in the 11/17 mailbag, J.J. had mentioned that the
GameShark was a device attaching to the back of the controller,
much like a Controller Pak or Rumble Pak..
Isn't the Gameshark, like nearly every other 'game enhancement
device', designed to connect between the console and the game?
At least mine do..
As for that question on 'Who my favorite Mario villian was and
why', I'd say Bowser, hands down. Not only is such a
viscious-looking beast being so cunning so awe-inspiring, he'd
likely toast me if I said my second choice, Kamek.
- Capt. Snarf, Aspiring Fungiomancer
David Dayton: Yeah, the GameShark hooks up to the game... I don't
know what was wrong with J.J. that day.
I went to McDonalds the other day and noticed something strange.
kids area, with the play equipment and the millions of 4 year old boys
girls enjoying themselves while bashing eachother's heads on the bars
chucking tiny plastic balls at unsuspecting 2 year olds, now boasted
featuring four Gamecube consoles. The kiosk was decorated with
McDonald and his fellow flamers having an orgy of kiddie fun, and
two controllers for each system. I was half-delighted to see kids
lined up to
play games like Super Monkey Ball and Wave Race. It was also
suprising to see
the same kids enjoying games of Madden NFL 2002 and Rogue
guessing that these kiosks have appeared at various McDonalds'
Do you think setting up Gamecube consoles
at McDonalds' was a good
move made by Nintendo? I personally wish they
had set up slightly less
flagrantly decorated consoles at other locations,
such as the mall or
Dominoes Pizza. Anyway, I have a Gamecube and enjoy
my four games: Rogue
Leader, Wave Race, THPS3 and SSBM. Hopefully Nintendo
will make some less
kid-oriented marketing moves in the future. Sorry for
this non-Mario related
email, but I know the mail-bag answerers here are
also Nintendo fans, and
hopefully won't mind. Anyway, answer my question
above, and for now, later.
David Dayton: It's a very smart move... brainwash the kids, and the
parents will follow. Regardless of what anyone says, the system that the kids
whine for the most will do the best. Kids, in this case, means anyone below
age 18. Sony, you see, when aiming at the "mature" market, is actually aiming
at those in the 13-16 age bracket...
Hi I have some Super Smash Bros. Melee questions
1. How do you get N64 version of the dream land level?
2. Is Mewtwo really a playable characater if so can you tell me where I can
David Dayton: Complete the Target Test/Break the Targets with all 25
characters in the game to enable the N64 Kirby's Dreamland level.
I have a question concerning the rating system (not the system itself, but
hey), I was reading the mailbag from December 21, 2001 and saw that K-A
changed to E. That also got me pondering why it changed... oh well. I
went to go play N64 with my sister and i got all my 2 player games, and
saw 2 different Mario Karts, we both own one. I then placed them into my
N64 to find out who's was who's (that might be grammatically incorrect :-p),
well anyway, I figured whose was whose (lol) and gave hers to her. I then
noticed that mine had K-A on it and hers had E. Would my Mario Kart have
any increased value if i sell it because it has K-A, or is it just the
regular price. It's like the state quarters, they might be more if you
the whole collection, but they are a quarter for right now. I mean, if
dont print anymore with the K-A symbol, it must have a little more worth...
David Dayton: I don't think it is or will be worth any more. The ESRB
changed the KA rating to E at some point...
David Dayton: Why not? ;)
I think it was the first letter in the fourteenth of December's mailbag,
written (Or typed, whatever floats your boat.) by Josh Nickerson, that
reminded me of something that I watched on some television show. In some
random gaming store, they had three kids, and three consoles. Gamecube,
X-Box and PS2. Each kid got a chance to play each console. Of course,
their ideal choice was: X-Box. (No, really, you have to tell me you saw
that coming.) They all gave every single console all good comments (None
bad, thankfully.), but their choice for X-Box was: The games are more
fun, it is faster, the graphics are better. I know I shouldn't be
offended by such comments, but I know that's untrue. My friend's brother
played X-Box, and said that the graphics get choppy, because of
glitches, the games are just like any other (Especially the sports
games. This means boring for those of you not paying attention.), and it
is certainly not as fast as PS2, and OBVIOUSLY not as fast as Gamecube.
Now, see here. I find myself to be a biased gamer, I don't touch
Playstation systems with a ten foot pole. My vote would always go toward
any Nintendo system (Cartoony game fan here.), save Game Boy Advance
because most of the games for it are originals, only enhanced, and I
don't find those to be any more interesting than when they didn't have
them enhanced. But I digress. The point of this was, it peeves me off
how most of the "mature hardcore I'MA KICK YO @SS MUTHAEFFA'" gamers who
love X-Box do so because "it's SO superior over Gamecube because
Gamecube is for babies" or "X-Box is ten times faster than the PS2 (Said
by Billy Bob Gates himself.)." That was just my opinion for people to
read and feel important because another person other than themselves
have the same opinions.
...Or not, that's fine with me.
David Dayton: I hate the XBox. I hate the PS2. Part of the reason is
that I dislike the fact that these big corporations are trying to take control
of yet another market. That is all.
Why was Toad the life of the party?
Because he's such a fungi! (fun guy).
Thought you'd like that one...
are you guys and ign rivals or something?
- Savage Baggage Master
David Dayton: No, not at all. I do, however, get annoyed at their
recent attempts to make readers feel guilty.
Where can I get Super Mario Bros. Super Show Episodes?
David Dayton: Try thrift stores.
My bro. was playin' Diddy Kong Racing and he got mad and took the
cartidge out. He put it in backwards (or tried to) and back forwards and
turned it off and on. We suddenly had all levels on tracks and we had
the silver baloons. We didnt beat the gae before though. Has this kind
of thing ever happened before. P.S. Great site!
David Dayton: You got lucky. It could just have easily erased all the
data. Doing weird things with your video game carts can cause the saved data
to be scrambled.
Hi to the poor person that has to read our dumb e-mail's this week!
This is my 2nd time sending you my dumb and annoying mail. Anyway I have
now ordered my Gamecube (yippie!!) but I have to wait till the UK
release date March the 8th (how the h--- am I suppsose to wait that
long?).BUT there is going to be a amazing 40 games to buy from the 1st
day! (At last something good for waiting that long!).The first game I am
going to buy is buy SSBM (the best gamecube game yet!)
David Dayton: Super Smash Bros. nifty... hey, European gamers... David
is trying to get his hands on the Konami Collection GBC carts, which were
never released in America. If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to trade with you.
I have 3 questions for ya. First what is Wario's last name. Second is
Wario Mario's evil twin or cousin? And last do you know when Wario will
make an appearence on the Gamecube? I must have the answers!!!!
David Dayton: Wario's last name is unknown. As far as we know, he is
merely an old acquaintance of Mario. Wario's already appeared on the GameCube
Wario trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee
I was wondering about something. Are Mario games just so good that they
aren't meant to take a long time, or am I rushing through them? I beat
Luigi's Mansion three times in one week. I have every character and
every level in SSB Melee, and I've only had it for a week and a half. I
don't mind being "good", if I may venture there, but I kind of wish one
would come along that was really challenging, kinda like SM64 was.
Sunshine looks like sunshiny goodness.
I hope you don't reply with some sort of rude comment, even though
saying this just guarantees it. I only am saying this because I recently
read through a few mailbags, and you seemed quite "angry" at the
Anyways, no hard feelings.
Don't you just love those neat and tidy mini-discs for the GameCube?
- Super Mario
David Dayton: Luigi's Mansion is just short, and SSBM isn't really a
Mario game, so standard Mario game lengths don't apply. However, Mario games
can generally be beaten in a single sitting, if you're good enough... although
that doesn't mean you can find and solve every puzzle and level in one sitting.
Angry at the writers? Not me...
1. Do you hate pocket monsters.
2.Why isnat wario in ssbm.
3.Why is the sky blue.
4.Are you the shape-shifting master of darkness.
5.do you like bomberman
6. I wish I had a tail.
7. Why are the pocket monsters movies rated R
8.I hate you
David Dayton: 1) No. 2) I don't know. 3) No, I won't do your science
homework for you. 4) No, sorry, you're thinking of the president of SCEA.
5) Sometimes. 6) Okay... 7) They aren't. 8) We don't. 9) Okay...
For the sake of David's sanity, I've taken the liberty of answering some of
these questions in italics after the question is asked.
a few questions to ask:
1. it's been nearly 3 weeks since we got a mailbag.That's not a question.
2. (squeaking) See #1
3. how old are all of you? (I'm 13 by the way) 25
4. What kind of stores can you find that mario candy? (please do not answer
"the candy store") Try video game stores.
5. Wasn't the company that made the mario candy the makers of that wierd
lolli-pop with an edible stick? I have no idea.
6. was it okay for me to make a link between your site and my page?Sure
7. Why did MEGAßĄTE stopped doing mailbags?Answer unknown.
8. Please let Mushroom Boy answer mailbags again?I'll ask him.
9. Was that really Abby answering the mailbags in September or was that
Deezer in disguise? Make a wild guess.
10. Why did you make a secret page in the first place? No idea
11. What if you make a contest of a mini scavener hunt, and the first 3 people
that win can see the secret page? Interesting idea.
12. Not a question: you should get people to help you update the mailbag
because they've been late for the last few weeks. Hey, mine usually go
up on time. Usually.
13. Did the voices of the Mario cartoon characters do any other cartoon voices?
I'm sure they did.
14. Do you like to answer my questions?Honestly? Er...no. I'm tired.
15. Am I bothering you with so many questions?See #14
16. Blah blah, yap yap yap, dribble dribble dribble, Yapity yap yap?
17. How does J.J. brush his teeth?The same way you do.
18. Does Bigmouth (Morton koopa) speak more than me?Unknown.
19. Do all canadians have large teeth?Umm...
20. What's your favorite course in Mario Golf? I can't recall.
21. Is david mad for answering so many questions? Because I heard him
sighing when he started answering them. Sigh...
22. Then I came across
the mailbag of January 19, I think, I heard about the person who couldn't
tape the Mario Bros. Cartoons on PAX.
Well, as a matter of fact, I did. I will order them from the day I taped
them. It took me about half an hour to order these:
1. "Sneaky, Lying, Cheating, Giant Ninja Koopas" "Reptiles in the Rose Garden"
2. "The Ugly Mermaid" "Mush-Rumors"
3. "Never Koop a Koopa" "Princess Toadstool for President"
4. "Crimes 'R' Us" "Life's Ruff"
5. "Reign Storm" "Toddler Terrors of Time Travel
1. "Send in the Clowns" "Ghost 'R' Us"
2. "A Little Learning" "Mama Luigi"
3. I forgot the first ones name, but it's the episode when Yoshi becomes
of a dinosaur gang. "Rock TV"
4. "Party Line" "Gopher Bash"
5. "The Night Before Cave Christmas" "King Scoopa Koopa"
23. Can you tell me The name of the one I forgot because a stupid Infomercial
went over the beginning of that episode. I can't.
24. are you sure that ther is a super mario advance 2 and 3? Fairly.
25. If Bowser has red hair in the games, how come come he's bald in the
cartoons? They based the Bowser model on the picture of him in the original
SMB, which had no hair.
David Dayton: Folks, please limit yourself to 1 e-mail per week.
I think that a game with Mario&sonic combo would be super Mario+sonic
compilation, all the games from each series with special mini-games (not
the old sonic ones- you get them by beating the game they were in-, but
brand new shiny mini-games where Mario and sonic would team up or go
head to head) being unlocked by performing things in the game like
getting a certain score, this huge game would be on the gamecube, and
the games would have graphics as advanced as they could get them. also,
I have a question, what do you think personally about the ole'
David Dayton: I hate the X-Box. ;)
I was wondering, since I read somewhere on TMK (Possibly a earlier mailbag),
that you weren't looking for people to work on TMK... I was wondering if
that is changed because I really want to help out, because I like video
games, and the sort... I will be your personal mailbag slave... ANYTHING!!
David Dayton: If Deezer needs help, he'll ask. Don't worry about it.
I've been suggesting to him that we find some cute female staff members around
our ages (18+), but no luck yet. ;)

I have a problem with my Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. I was playing
the game on my Gameboy Advance but then I turned it off to eat lunch. When
I finished, I turned my GBA back on and everything was deleted!!! What
OK, I also had something bad happen to Mario Teaches Typing 2. (Don't
laugh at me. I was only 7 and wanted to know how to type!) Like Wario Land
I played the game and then turned off my computer. When I turned it on
and loaded up the game my file was gone!!! I started over again, and got
to where I left off. Then I quit the game. I turned it back on a day later
and it was gone, again! It does this whenever I play it!!! Any clues to
what causes it?
Hey TMK, what happened to the site Mario Mania? It was on Nintendoland.
Whenever you try to open it, it says the page is gone. Did the site close
Is there ever a chance Super Mario Bros. will come to DVD?
Hey TMK guys What is the deal with Tatanga? Is he in any other games
besides Super Mario Land 1 and 2? Wasn't he in the Mario comics? And is
he gonna be in any new games? I want you to put him in the charecters section
David Dayton: I don't know what's wrong with your Warioland cartridge,
and all I can guess for your MTT2 game is that something is wrong with your
computer. Mario Mania isn't our site, so we can't really answer that.
Tatanga appeared in the Game Boy comics, and I believe he was also present
as a boss in Super Mario Land 2: The Six Golden Coins.

I am making a ZNES movie guide to each world of Super Mario World, would
like it for your site?
David Dayton: Sounds interesting. I'll forward this to Deezer. ;)
I have some interesting information for you. On Long island in New york.
There is a mall called the south shore mall . Its called now the
Westfield shopping center. In this mall there is a store called Software
etc. that sells Old Nes games from $1.00 to $13.00. I was thinking this
could be important because if anyone wants to collect the old Nes games.
They could go to the WestField shopping center on Long Island , NY. To
purchase these antique games. Please let the public know about this.
David Dayton: Thanks. Many Software Etc. stores do that.
Quick thing that wasn't in your tips section is that
for every 2 million points you get in SM2 mode, you
get a little Mario head next to your high-score on the
main menu. A maximum of 5 heads / 10,000,000 points.
Great website, keep up the good work.

David Dayton: Nifty.
Luigi has always been my favorite character, to the point where I can't
remember why, but I still think he's cool. I have a question.
Mario's voice used in Super Mario 64, or some variations meant to
sound similar, has essentially become Mario's permanant voice. Yoshi's voice
varies, but his Yoshi's Story voice is gradually becoming the norm. Luigi's
voice, however, has rarely been the same in more than one game, and has
a history of sounding terrible. Do you think Luigi's Mansion, in which
he has a decent-sounding voice that matches his appearance and personality,
will establish a permanent voice, or do you think they'll go back to using
random and annoying voices in subsequent games?
I made a cool winamp skin but it's a zelda one so you probably don't want
it. Have you heard the song "Nintendo" by Saint Dragon? It's cool. I heard
from someone who played SSBM at a cube club that bowser moves so slow that
he's terrible, especially in hectic levels like the F-Zero track. He also
said peach isn't very good or interesting, exept for her cool floaty move
from SMB2. But he admits he doesn't play Smash Bros well, so that could
accountfor apparent badness of characters.
Hey Deezer, you going to post my TMK Winamp skin? It's not doing
me much good, I can't listen to WTMK, and I always use my awesome Zelda
skin. BUT ANYWAYS... I'm working on an update to my Mario Bros Amp, which,
oddly enough, is still the newest skin. It uses the original Main Screen,
a Donkey Kong Equalizer, and a DK Jr. Playlist. Any opinion on what I should
use for a minibrowser?
David Dayton: Luigi's voice is done by the same guy, Charles Martinet,
so it should be getting more and more similar. Why it isn't is a mystery to
me. Bowser isn't that bad, and the Princess is actully quite good. I forwarded
the Winamp skin to Deezer... I'd suggest using Toad for the Minibrowser. ;)
Since David didn't know the answer, I'M SPECIFICALLY ASKING DEEZER!!!
Is the secret page blatantly obvious to get to, maybe to make everyone
feel stupid? By the way, great site. Only SMBHQ compares.
- Jackal Lord
Deezer: No. It's not obvious.
I was thinking up a game with just the bad guys of Nintendo.I called it Big
Bady Bash.It should have Bowser,King K.Rool,Smithy ect.and all other bad guys
from of the Nintendo games (Metriod,Eathbound,Killer Instint,Bomberman,Super
Mario Bros.,Pokemon,ect.) The hidden characters are the retro form of them
from their earlier games. Also their minoins are play able too. There are
over 50 battle fields and 2 retro feilds. So what you think of it?
I started playing Mario RPG (that I just got) when I notice something.
The game play is kinda like Pokemon,like when I fight someone it looks like a
Pokemon battle.WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?!?
- Dis. Is Weir.D AKA GAMEBOY2
David Dayton: Both games are RPGs. They are somewhat similar in battle
I notice a picture of Mario in the game named Zelda A Link To The Past.
After you save Zelda from the castle, head towards the east and go into
one of the houses and look north. One of the pictures of Mario when you
try to pull out the picture of him blue coines pop out. Did Nintendo
really want to put a picture of Mario in it or did they just want to put
him in like a joke?
P.S GAMEBOY2 is my big brother.
- Game Master
David Dayton: It was intentionally put in as a joke. There are also
Chain Chomps in the game.
