The voice of Mario in the SMB Super Show has passed away. :(  Good night, sweet prince.

I was just about to post this.

He also played Mario in the live action segments.

I guess he was on his last 1-up.

I remember him more for his contributions to wrestling, but he was pretty entertaining as Mario, which says a lot considering I despise SMBSS.

Good night, sweet prince.
As a game that requires six friends, an HDTV, and skill, I can see why the majority of TMK is going to hate on it hard.

My heart sank the moment I saw this thread's title. Despite me not being into wrestling, Captain Lou was one of my heroes simply for his inimitable contribution to the Mario universe and his general attitude toward life.

Good night, sweet Captain.

Ah, I saw this on the news ticker when I was eating lunch in Southside dining center just now. I was 98% certain I recognized that name.

Rest in peace, Captain Lou. We shall all "do the Mario" in your honor.

Jokes aside, I am considerably sad over his death. And today's my mother's birthday no less...

Who?
That's exactly what I was thinking (to be fair, I haven't actually seen the SMBSS, just the SMB3/World cartoons, so I didn't recognise who he was).

*sigh*

That's a little ironic, considering I wondered aloud just to my wife just last night if he was still alive.

He did a wonderful job playing Mario during the live-action segments of the SMBSS. How sad that he's gone now. :(
Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

Oh geez. I guess this crappy year isn't over yet, huh? :(

I generally don't like dancing, but... *does the Mario in his honor*
Fangirling over Luigi since 1999.

This news greatly saddens me.  I really loved the show.  Rest in peace, Captain Lou.
Here we go!

The last sound he ever made.

But seriously... man, another celebrity gone. Well, hope the Underwhere is treating you well, Cap'n.
