What happenend to the WTMK playlist? All it seems to play now is Yoshi's
Safari, Mario No Super Picross and Super Mario Land 2, plus a couple of
commercials. Where did all the other songs go?
- Eternal Phoenix
David Dayton: It's a temporary playlist change. Every time we add new
tracks to WTMK,
we try to emphasize the new additions for a bit. The last batch of tunes
were primarily from
those games, so the playlist was modified to contain a random sampling of
tunes from other Mario
games and the entire soundtrack for each of those games. Don't worry,
a new WTMK playlist
is coming soon. Right, Deezer?
Sapphira: Do I look like Deezer to you? (I hope not...XD)
Chupperson: What's this? Another mailbag?
Lizard Dude: Zounds! I'll get to work immediately!
Deezer: So I hear there's another mailbag going on...
Mushroom Boy: *slaps everyone around a bit with a large trout*
I love the mailbags. Any news from your place?
I have the same doubt from Mario Golf 64: I can't unlock Metal Mario. How
can I do it?
My version is the Japanese one.
What does [sic] means?
- Ana Carolina Teruya
David Dayton: No real news here. How is life in Brazil? I'll let
someone with more
Mario Golf 64 experience than myself tackle the Metal Mario
question... but I can tell
you that [sic] means that a grammatical mistake in a message is there
because it is a direct quote.
In other words, if you see [sic] in a message sent to the mailbag,
it's usually found
right after a spelling mistake or grammatical error. It's just there to let
you know that we aren't
the ignorant ones.
Sapphira: Ooohh... Looks like David found his flirting buddy again...
;P BTW, [sic] stands for "spelling incorrect."
Chupperson: Apparently no one knows the answer to your question.
Lizard Dude: What is this golf stuff? Tennis all the way.
Deezer: Get all 108 Birdie Badges to unlock Metal Mario in Mario Golf
64. Just thinking about finishing that makes me feel "[sic]."
This is esl2005 here just wanting to tell you to keep up the good work.
Anyway I was wondering if you could post a picture of Mario Segali on
the mailbag. Or if ther is a place I could go to see his picture. I've
been wondering exactly what he looks like. Thanks!
David Dayton: I don't know if anyone has a picture of Mario Segali.
in New York could try to track him down? He was a landlord in the 80's, so
someone should be
able to find either him or his family.
Chupperson: I looked. Nothing.
Lizard Dude: M-m-m-Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaario!
Deezer: I bet he changed his name.
MEGAß¥TE: Who, Mario Segali or esl2005 AKA Trainman?
This is trainman again. I was wondering on MG:TT if they should have a
secret code to where after everybody has hit the ball you race golf
carts similar to MKDD. Instead of shells and stuff the guy in the back
chunks golf balls, clubs, etc., trying to get to thier ball. Wouldn't
that br funny?
I was reading the latest mailbag and was wondering if you could
elaborate a littl bit more about that Famicon game, "Kart Fighter"
please. I've never seen it and it looks pretty awwsome. May I comment on
how horribly crappy the artist drew everybody, i.e. Yoshi is a deformed
lizard and DK or DK Jr. looks like he's high.
While looking at that game I remembered something else. Why on some
Mario games is it where the charscters have blue outlines or they're a
shade of blue whem you are playing like on the NES version of SMB2.
Also, in some other games Mario looks extremely weird. On some games
that I can't name it look like he is kinda leaning back and his arm is
huge. I can't really describe it so nevermind.
David Dayton: 1) Yes, a Mario Golf Kart game would be interesting.
I'd expect it to appear
in a Mario Party title if it were to appear anywhere, though. 2) It's
a bizarre pirate
NES game... and rather good, for what it is. 3) Palette limitations? 4)
Chupperson: Yes, palette limitations. The NES is restricted to 4
colors per sprite, and Mario's pants are blue, his hair is brown, his face
is ... "flesh" color and shirt and hat are red. So, since Mario's pants are
Lizard Dude: ...his outline is also blue. But didn't the SMB2 sprite
have something weird with the eyes?
Deezer: I'll let MB explain the SMB2 eyes.
MEGAß¥TE: 2) What more is there to elaborate on? It's a Street
Fighter-style game (there are tons of these on the Famicom) with the Mario
This layer was an addition from DDP to SMB2. SMB2 also introduced animated
tiles. The eye tile also happens to be an animated tile, though they never put
forth the effort to make the characters blink.
Additionally, it looks like they could have easily given them black pupils,
but they didn't bother to do that either.
Unfortunately, adding this extra layer did have consequences. If you notice
the flickering of the eyes in front of doors when you open them, that's due
to conflicting layer priorities between the eye sprite and the door.
All in all, it was an interesting addition that arguably made Mario look
better in SMB2 than he did in SMB3.
3) In SMB2 they decided they liked Mario to have blue pants and outline,
whereas in SMB3 they decided to make both of those black.
If you've played the unofficial Super Mario World for Famicom, you'd see
they did a pretty good (but certainly not perfect) job keeping the black
outline for the head and the blue outline for the body.
Though it would have been possible in Nintendo's official games, they did
not choose to attempt this for whatever reason... (this game is the one that
proved the NES could handle Mario riding Yoshi as well).
The NES is restricted to 64 colors, with 16 colors on a screen, and 4
"colors" per sprite, but only 3 of those colors are visible because one of
them counts as transparency.
If you look at Mario's head, you'll notice that their are five "colors":
blue, red, flesh, clear, and white.
What happened here is that the eyes are actually another layer behind the
head, allowing the extra white. Mario, Luigi, and Princess have these extra
What I've done to show them below is to completely remove the tile that
partially covers these other tiles.
Oh yeah, here's a shot of the unlicensed Super Mario World for Famicom,
released in 1995:
4) Sounds like you're talking about Somari, yet another unlicensed Famicom
Sapphira: Whoa. Freaky. @_@
I am a HUGE fan of the movie THE WIZARD, my first VHS copy of it wore
out a LONG time ago, and my copy that I taped off Nickelodeon is about to
expire also. What I was wondering was if the movie will ever be re
released on DVD. I know that over in Germany, they have the movie, but I
want to know if it will be released in the U.S.A. If not, then do you
know any place that would sell it on VHS or Laser disc, because I really
want to own that movie unedited again. Thanks a lot for you time!
David Dayton: You can get a used copy via
Amazon for about $15.
hi guys i wrote in a frw past mailbags and i wanted to ask if you have
any very detailed boss guides to paper mario thanks
David Dayton: I don't
Sapphira: Boss guides, no... But if you're ever looking for all the
dialogue in the game... well... *cough*
Lizard Dude: ...then come to me! XD
Deezer: *gives Sapphira a cough drop*
I noticed that one of the mailbags say that in Dexter's Lab, when Dexter
comes out of the teleporter, he has something like a raccoon tail.
Actually, it was a bee stinger! I don't think it should be a cameo.
Have you noticed that the balloon in the SMBSS episode Raiders of the
Lost Mushroom looks like the one in Super Mario Advance 2? You know, at
Does one of the power-up E-Cards for Super Mario Advance 4 have a
Hi, I just tried your "rom" an it said I was an idiot. Ha ha, nice one
(No really, it was funny), but could you make another one and make it
say Megan Jindra is an idiot? She's my sister, and she is a PAIN!
can Mario swallow a Mushroom if it's bigger than his head? Wouldn't
chewing take too much time?
2. How many characters can you play as in
Mario Tennis for the GCN?
3. How much does it cost total for all the NES
4. If you're a little jealous, I have the SMBSS Mario's
Greatest Movie Moments DVD.
David Dayton: Yes, the balloon is balloon shaped... and, as of now,
there is no Jugem's
Cloud SMA4 eReader card. I know as I have all of set 1 and 2. However,
Nintendo has announced
two additional SMA4 eReader card sets. As far as the mushrooms go, Mario
bites them. No information
on Mario Tennis has really surfaced so far. You can get the NES
eReader card packs for as
little as 99 cents each, if you know where to look. No, I'm not jealous.
Lizard Dude: Mailbag Motto: I don't think it should be a cameo.
Deezer: 1. Magic. 2. Unknown. 3. Depends on where you buy them, I
guess. 4. Not jealous.
MEGAß¥TE: 0. I hope your sister finds this page in Google cache in
about 5 years. 4. Remember, I'm the one who sold 6 of them on eBay...
I'VE FOUND IT! I-I-I'VE F-F-FINALLY F-F-FOUND IT! Okay enough drama. I
hear that on Beta Super Mario USA (Or something like that) You've found
that litgtle boxes with character heads come and flash two frames of
animation. well I've found out what they are. If you get a frame of a
good guy, It means that a good event Is about to happen. If you get a
frame of a boss, It means that a bad event or a boss battle is about to
happen. Also you said that you've only seen Mario Luigi Peach Toad Birdo
and Mouser, Well there's also Mad Peach (Wierd) Cool Luigi (Wierd) A
King from SMB3 (Even wierder) Red Birdo, Green Birdo, Tryclide and
Clawgrip...Clawgrip?!!!! I thought that Clawgrip wasn't in Super Mario
USA! I thought they replaced him with a white mouser. Did they change it
- Bob Smith
David Dayton: I will pretend I understand this.
Sapphira: Clawgrip was in SMB2... Right? Oh, and I think I've seen
these things you're talking about before... Hmm...
Chupperson: You mean BS-X Super Mario USA? I've seen all those faces
pop up, but never given it much thought...
Lizard Dude: If you shink thash weird *hic* you should she the Alpha!
Deezer: I'll have what he's^ having.
MEGAß¥TE: Yeah, he's talking about the BS-X version, which has
nothing to do with a "beta" version and actually came much later. Clawgrip
is in SMUSA (1992) because he's in the US SMB2 (1988). He is not in the
original DDP (1987). I'm not sure how the events work in BS-X SMUSA, but
haven't put any time into trying to figure them out. BTW, the WTMK logo
actually comes from this game as well. So, you've seen these Sapphira? I
thought ROMs were EVIL :-P
Sapphira: Ha. I've seen sprites and screenshots of them. Nya. >:P
On the WTMK: Mario Radio, which i listen to all the time, there is one
song that my Winamp says is called Adventures Through Gaming. its the
one that has the Mario saying "Itsa me" then some unknown voice going
"who?" and then it continues one with some more of that, but i was
wondering if you have it up on your download music part as a different
name or something, or if you even have it for downloading, if you do,
can you tell me its name and what section its in, like the MIDI, and if
not, could you put it up?
David Dayton: It's from some weird CD Nintendo of Europe put out. We
can't let you
download it, as that's copyright infringement.
Deezer: See Nintendo Sound Adventures
and N64Y2K Millenium Trax.
This is going to that _______ from super mailbag 128. You think your so

David Dayton: Play nicely with each other, please.
Sapphira: My, my... Soapy-time! *Washes Unanymous's mouth out with
Lizard Dude: I love the third clause of the second sentence of that.
Deezer: My favorite part was when it ended.
MEGAß¥TE: Swiss cheese...
sup, tmk. your website rocks. the best mario website ever. ok. i was
surfing ebay when I came across some mario toys and one of them includes
a Yoshi PEZ dispenser! Dod they use to make Nintendo PEZ dispensers?
that's so cool if you have a picture of some, can you show it? thanks
P.S. J.J.-your mean
David Dayton: The PEZ dispenser were only in Europe and Australia,
I've been told... however,
ages ago, there was a Donkey Kong Jr. PEZ dispenser, given away in boxes of
Donkey Kong Jr. cereal.
Sapphira: Umm... How can one own "mean"?
Lizard Dude: J.J. did it. And what hasn't been made into a PEZ
Deezer: Before I die, I want a PEZ-shaped PEZ dispenser.
MEGAß¥TE: If anybody would ever work on the merchandise page *cough*
we'd post the PEZ pictures for sure.
Yeah, I was watching "Life as a Teenage Robot" and in the episode where
Jenny finds her prototype sisters they fight these two mustachioed
who look like Mario and Luigi. They jump off a dam they are plotting to
destroy complete with Mario-esque jumping noise. I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU
LIKE MARIO REFERENCES.
- d3 chain
In the new Nickelodeon show, "My Life as a Teenage Robot" (Which I like,
IMO) there is a big refrence to the Mario Brothers. In the episode where
Jenny (XJ9) meets her 8 other sisters, near the end of the episode two
suspicious characters enter, named "The Jackhammer Brothers" One is
short and fat, in red overalls with a mustache like Warios, and one is
tall and skinny with green overalls that resembles Waluigi. There
accents are exactly like Wario and Waluigis, with the the "Im-a-gonna
kill-a-you!" and some evilness in the tone. They are obviously modelled
to look like Mario and Luigi, but to act and sound like Wario and
Waluigi. Accident? I think not.
David Dayton: How interesting! Thanks, folks.
Sapphira: Lizard Dude has some serious work to do...
Chupperson: This guy likes it in his opinion. Does that mean I can
think you don't like it?
Lizard Dude: *does serious work*
Deezer: I'm so glad we hired Lizard Dude.
So Fire Emblem has come to North America. I prefer Final Fantasy, SaGa,
Seiken Densetsu, Dragon Warrior, and Fire Emblem far over Super Mario.
Final Fantasy overtook Super Mario as my favorite video game series in
2001. I notice that TMK has some new staff members. There are
articles on many Super Mario games. I started the Wikipedia article on
Super Mario All-Stars. I also went to GameFAQs and downloaded the Super
Mario All-Stars changes .txt document. One other thing is that I am
studying Japanese. It sounds very interesting to me. However, I heard a
rumor that the Super Mario series will retire. Here are some questions:
1. Is everyone operating the TMK site male? (Is the staff is all male? This
question was previously asked on the October 5, 2001 mailbag, and the answer
was previously "Yes, we are all male."). If no, which ones are female?
2. What is your favorite Mario character? (Mine is Luigi.)
3. What is your least favorite Mario character? (Mine is Yoshi.)
4. Do you prefer Luigi over Yoshi? (I say yes myself.)
5. What is your favorite non-Mario Nintendo character? (Mine is Siglud of
Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu.)
6. What is your favorite Super Smash Bros. Mle character? (Mine is Marth.)
7. Can you speak Japanese? (I am studying the language.) If yes, how
8. Do you want to go to Japan anytime soon?
9. Has anyone at TMK bought Fire Emblem for GBA?
10. For the games remade for Super Mario All-Stars (SMAS), do you prefer the
SMAS version (for Super NES) over the original NES version? (I prefer the

David Dayton: 1) Sapph, you want to field this one? 2) Luigi. 3) Any
of those Square ones
that people seem to want in every game. 4) Yes. 5) Not sure. Pac-Man,
perhaps? 6) Peach is pretty
good. 7) No. 8) Hahah... as if that had any chance of happening. 9) Yes. 10)
there are small things I prefer in the original versions.
Sapphira: 1) I'm certainly female... 2) Yoshi. 3) GASP! How COULD
you! *slaps David (Hill or Dayton...hmm) around a bit with a large Yoshi
egg.* Probably Jr. Troopa. 4) No. Yoshi will always rule. 5) Princess
Zelda, maybe? 6) Peach. 7) Do "konnichiwa" and "sayonara" count? 8) Not
really; I'd rather go to a bunch of other places more. 9) David, apparently.
Chupperson: 2) Hmm... 3) Hmm... Wario. 4) Not necessarily. 5)
Krystal. 6) Mario or Peach. 7) I speak more Japanese all the time. 8) You

Lizard Dude: 1) She's certainly female... 2) Yoshi. 3) Toadsworth. 4)
GASP! How COULD you! *slaps David Dayton around a bit with a large Yoshi
egg.* 5) Knuckles the Echidna. 6) Captain Falcon. 7) No, sir. 8) Yes, ma'am.
9) Yes. 10) I prefer original SMB and SMB2 because of the physics changes in

with "ario." 6) See previous mailbags. 7) I forget more Japanese all the
time. 9) Not I. 10) See LD's answer.
MEGAß¥TE: 1) When I first read Sapph's answer, I thought she said
"I'm currently female..." 2) Mario? 3) E. Gadd or Waluigi 4) No. 5)

that an offer? 9) I have not 10) SMAS in general, but I don't like some of
the new things like the bonus music for SMB/SMBTLL.
I'd hate to ask for a map of every single Mario game to help with my
compilation of the Mushroom World (the entire Mushroom World), so I
won't. I'll be content if you could show me the map screens from Super
Mario Bros. DX, and all the maps from SMB3 (and if any new ones come
with the SMA4 edition, I'd like to see those maps as well at some
point). Other than that, what can I say? Great site, long live Croco.
- Jonathan Jones
David Dayton: I would do that for ya, but my capture card and game
systems aren't currently
Sapphira: I've sketched out a drawing of what the Mushroom World
looks like... Believe me, it's more complicated than it sounds. Hmm...
maybe I should get a scanner... And, yes, I would like to see these,
also... Pretty please...? ;P
Chupperson: I've pondered making a map of the Mushroom World many
times. I oughta go ahead and do that sometime.
Lizard Dude: Um, I drew 1-1 on the back of a notebook once...
Deezer: Here's a composite map of SMBDX that I made 3½ years
ago because JJ wanted to see it. Weird how some screens don't line up
exactly, but oh well.
MEGAß¥TE: Now, who wants to do the "For Super Players" map?
I got a question, how come Mario gets all the spotlight....and
luigi....gets nothing but a messed up image, << Y'know....how Mr.
Miyamoto made him a
chicken.. >> Us Luigi fan want to know why the father of Mario &
would make his youngest son have only 2 games to his self.... <<
missing & Luigi's mansion >> and the older son become Americas
known game character....
David Dayton: Mario is the main character. Luigi is the supporting
cast. It's just the
way it is.
Sapphira: Mario isn't much older than Luigi... *Cough*twins*cough*
Chupperson: It's not messed up.
Lizard Dude: The characters have to be different, otherwise they'd be
Deezer: More cough drops, Sapphira?
MEGAß¥TE: What David said. Twins... blah... Pre-YI was so much
Dear Mailbag answerer,
In Luigi's Mansion, when you fight King Boo on the roof, there is no
mansion under the roof.
Your site ROCKS! XBox sucks
David Dayton: Yes.
Sapphira: I thought Luigi's vacuum did...Is the XBox a vacuum in
Chupperson: Don't you mean Mailbag answerers?
Lizard Dude: Just like on all Luigi's Mansion bosses, you warp to a
new place that only focuses on the immediate surrounding. Think about how
the area looks when you fight the baby.
what the FREEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't download and mario games is there
a place where i can download mario world 2 hu hu hu hu hu if there is a
place to download it i'll sponscer you guys bey
- Don Nash
David Dayton: Hey, Deezer, this guy is offering to pay for our e3
tickets and hotel rooms.
Sapphira: Hmm... Does that mean I'm gonna be TMK's "Booth Babe"?
Chupperson: w00t w00t
Lizard Dude: Um, booth babes are for booths, not for the media.
Deezer: Will he pay for food too?
MEGAß¥TE: "media..." Hey, if she's offering... perhaps she hasn't
seen my "other" E3 pics yet...
Sapphira: *rolls eyes* -_-'
Dear Deezer, J. J., megabyte, chupperson weird, David Dayton and anyone
else may have forgot to mention, Happy Thanksgiving! Do they have
turkeys in the mushroom kingdom? or maybe Mario would go back to
Brooklyn for Thanksgiving? Any ways happy thanksgiving!!
- Mega Toad
David Dayton: Yes.
Sapphira: You forgot me... *pouts lip* Happy Thanksgiving? 'Tis
almost Christmas! And a happy new year?
Lizard Dude: Hey Mega Toad. Look at the second to last response in
the previous mailbag.
Deezer: I think in the Mushroom World they have Goomba dinner.
MEGAß¥TE: They have one turkey, at least. I think he wears green...
Hello. I am interested in learning how to play the super mario brothers
......would u happen to know if i could find any sheet music for it? i would
really appreciate you help! thank you!
David Dayton: I do know that there was once a collection of Nintendo
sheet music... it was
sold here in the USA, even. Lizard Dude might be able to help you out with
Sapphira: Heehee... I thought that was the one song he couldn't get
down... <:P Isn't there sheet music here already, anyway?
Lizard Dude: I didn't use sheet music for my home-cooked versions,
but for all you sheet music fiends, just say henshin!
MEGAß¥TE: Hmm I remember seeing it for sale in Canada too...
Though I'm not a member of the Fungi Forums, I still visit
your odacious site on a regular basis. Well although this is an odd

David Dayton: Sapph has a boyfriend! Sapph has a boyfriend!
Sapphira: Umm... I do? Keep on dreaming, people... I am SO out of you
people's leagues. Don't even TRY. >;P Oh, and, no, you're not seeing my
picture. Stalker, eh? I know SOMEONE here who IS... *glares at Lizard Dude*
...Hmm...*Also glares at Chupperson for having a part in it*
Chupperson: *grins sheepishly*

Mario Party 5
Page 20: They spell Clepto's name with a C in the
manual, but Klepto with a K in Mario Party 5.
David Dayton: Interesting.
Sapphira: Who? (Once again, being that I don't HAVE a game, I
wouldn't know...) *cries*
Chupperson: If memory serves me right, it's Klepto in SM64, if I even
remember what I'm talking about here.
MEGAß¥TE: Did they also misspell "Instruction" ?
Sapphira: Oh yes. I remember him now. That vulture from Shifting Sand
David Dayton: Toad and Koopa Troopa are good for beating records...
Wario and Luigi are good
for having fun.
Sapphira: *Sigh* And yet still little me over here doesn't have this
game...yet... (Just seven more days... Just seven more days...)
Lizard Dude: Wha? That's my favorite combo too! ^_^
Deezer: When I unlocked Toad, I used him and Baby Mario for the rest
of the game.
MEGAß¥TE: I played Koopa and Paratroopa until I unlocked Toad and
Toadette, then used those two.
Sapphira: Update: w00t! MKDD is MINE now! MUHUHAHAHA!!! ^_^ My
fave combo is Yoshi and Daisy, although I'm best with Paratroopa and
Toadette in the Para Wing, so I'm always them.
I really like your site. Thanks for all the help that you give out! When
can we expect your review of "Superstar Saga"?
- Koopa Man
David Dayton: "It's better than Super Mario RPG!"
Chupperson: See David's response.
Lizard Dude: "Good, yet not as good as Super Mario RPG, best
game of all time!"
Deezer: See Chupperson's response.
hi i just wanted too say Well i heard one kid say maybe you should
put up a thing on your site so you email nintendo and say you want a remake
of mario rpg because i sure do want a remake and thats how the zelda bonus
came so maybe you will? is ther any info on a mario rpg remake? just
ps your site rocks!
David Dayton: Well, I don't think a TMK run petition for SMRPG would
that and I'd rather have more NEW Mario games, anyway.
Sapphira: I hope they remake it...*sigh*
Chupperson: The Master Quest disc was already out in Japan, if that's
what you mean.
Lizard Dude: That's not what he meant.
My girlfriend and I are debating what the symbol on the flag on the
flagpole at the end of each level is. She says it is a peace sign,
I say it is a mushroom, for the Mushrom Kingdom. I am right. Let us know,
David Dayton: I always assumed it was a skull, as it looks identical
to the icon on the
Bullet Bill cannons.
Sapphira: The one is SMAS is a star..... I thought in SMB it was a
Chupperson: In NES SMB it is a skull.
Lizard Dude: It is a skull. The cannons and people who took over the
fortresses want neither peace nor good will to Mushroom folk.
Deezer: I have nothing more to add.
MEGAß¥TE: It is a skull, but I'm willing to call it a peace sign in
Where is Sarasaland? Is it in the mushroom Kingdom? Or elsewhere?
David Dayton: Given that it has its own ruler, I'd assume it was
Lizard Dude: Second star on the right. Fly until morning.
Deezer: There ain't no place like Super Mario Land.
MEGAß¥TE: Though Mario Land is actually yet another location.
OK, I would like to know if baby luigi was in any other game except mario
double dash, oh, and what is the differance between baby bowser and bowser
in mario party games the baby bowsers look differant Thanks for your time
PS i'm 7 years old
David Dayton: Baby Luigi was in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island as the helpless kidnap victim. Bowser Jr. is the newest Koopa Kid, and he's been in a few
games (such as
Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Super Mario Sunshine). Baby Bowser
would be Bowser as
a child, only seen in Yoshi's Island. The things in the Mario
Party games are
"Koopalings" and "Mini Bowsers" -- and no one is quite sure what they are.
Sapphira: Can no one see the difference between Baby Bowser, Bowser
Jr., and those "Koopa Kid" things? *bangs head on keyboard* Being that
you're only 7, I'll cut you some slack. ;)
Lizard Dude: No no, Sapphira, the Koopa Kids are different still. But
I'll cut you some slack. ;)
MEGAß¥TE: Well you know, they're selling "My
First DNA Kit" now...
Sapphira: LD, the "Koopa Kids" and "Koopalings" are different. The
"Koopa Kids" were known as "Baby Bowsers" in the first 3 Mario Party games.
I'm going to guess they're just younger clones of Bowser.
Well, I think JJ is way too offensive. I know it says to not be offended
if u guys poke fun at us, but JJ downright insults his mailbag users.
stupid questions or not, its his job to answer mailbags, and half the
time (when its his turn) he doesn't! Just food for the thought TMK. I
seriously convinced three or four of my friends not to come here anymore
b/c of JJ''s comments (although Im very sure that doesn't matter due to
your many fans who deem u guys gods. Riiight. And another thing: when
someone asks u two questions, respond to both, not just half of it! And
when someone asks if u know where to get something or something like
that, don't just say Yes, tell them where!) I doubt JJ knows half as
much as me.
Okay about the errata. In the ending of Paper Mario, I believe when you
read the news bulletin in Toad Town and its listing off all the party
members that helped you out, it says "Lady Boo" instead of Lady Bow. And
if it does say Lady Bow and my memory is wrong, I know somewhere during
the ending sequence in Toad Town, somebody says Lady Boo instead of Bow.
- Mag Y.S.
David Dayton: Why did you convince people not to come here? Wouldn't
that make you our
mortal foe? But, anyway... we respond to whatever part of the question we
enough to respond to. Or something like that. Thanks for the note on Lady
Sapphira: Yes, you are correct. I have seen that "Lady Boo" thing,
also. *Gets out giant binder of all the dialogue from PM* Ah, yes...here we
"Hurrah for Princess Peach! Hurrah for Mario!! Mario was as strong as
legend said he was! He fought bravely beside Goombario, Kooper, Parakarry,
Bombette, Lady Boo, Watt, Lakilester and Sushie! We're gonna party
like there's no tomorrow! Come on! -Toad Town Underground News"
P.S.- Yes, I really DO have ALL the dialogue written down. And, yes, I know
I'm insane. XD
Lizard Dude: *gives Sapphira a Ribbon*
Deezer: More like "Sapphira Weird" ba-dum chhh.
MEGAß¥TE: *gives Sapphira a Shawne*
Since J.J. is not here, perhaps I should insult you instead. Seriously
though, I don't see where you get off telling us what to do and keeping
people from our site because you don't like one member's comments. Finally,
I'd bet J.J. knows quite a bit more than you, otherwise he wouldn't be
running a political cartoon site.
Sapphira: GASP! Deezer, you told the secret! Chupperson and I are
really brother and sister! :O
Megabyte, JJ, Deezer, David Dayton, Chupperson well, i thougght that the
click on JJ in the last mailbag was rather special. The brady bunch isnt
my favorite TV show though.
Alright i might sound outright stupid here, and i know you arent a
donkykong site your a mario site ,.. and i think im pushing your limits,
1What is diddy kong's relation to donky Kong?
has a direct relation to donkeykong) Why then, dont you cover Diddy Kong
Racing on TMK?????, that game is a classic, and still one of my
MEGATE: Some of the staff had a discussion on this and we will go back
and cover the DKC/DKL games now (like we should have before IMO). if you
are gonna covet that, why not DKR (unless an above answer anwers that)
4. Were Sapparia and LD only guests, and will they return to their
moderator postitons? or will they be answering further mailbags?
David Dayton: As far as I know, Diddy is just DK's little pal...
although I think that
Super Smash Bros. Melee said that Diddy was DK's nephew, which
is really bizarre.
The entire Rare series of DK games is in a sort of fuzzy state right now...
just wait and see what happens.
Sapphira: Yeah, I always thought Diddy was DK's li'l buddy. I've also
heard before that Diddy is DK's, nephew, which doesn't make any sense, IMO.
Sapphira and LD are now official TMK staff. Wooooo!! ;)
Chupperson: MEGATE and Sapparia? Who?
Lizard Dude: 1) The Donkey Kong Country manual calls Diddy Kong
"Donkey Kong's 'little buddy'" over and over again. Little Buddy is
definitely the offical term. No blood relation. In addition, Dixie is
Diddy's girlfriend and Kiddie is Dixie's cousin.
Ya hear that MEGA? The Deezer Bunch 3rd Mix is rather special!
I ate too much saffron rice and now MEGATE to go attend to me Sapparia.
Deezer: David's working on something for the DK dilemma.
MEGAß¥TE: 2/3: We can extend one level of reference across, but
pushing it to two levels (DKR) is a bit much. And I hardly think DKR can
qualify as "classic" in any sense of the word.
Sapphira: Wait... AHAHAHAHA! LD actually ISN'T staff yet!
i have a few things i would like to say
1-why was the photo removed but i guess i know what it is pikachu and
pichu doing theri taunts by echoter
2-systems are dissapering to fast like ps2 is dead in january
4-jj can say whattever he wants and i dont mind i find it an honor to be
moked by him
my 2 cents

David Dayton: Huh?
Sapphira: 3) I concur.
Chupperson: 3) I disagree.
Lizard Dude: 3) Simpson's Rule? How can you disagree? Of course when
f(x) tabulated at points x0,
x1, and x2 equally spaced by distance
h then the integral from x0 to x2
of f(x)dx equals one third of

plus one sixth of the integral from x1 to
Deezer: Of course.
MEGAß¥TE: 3) D'OH 4) Not this time. Your hopes are crushed again.
David Dayton: In the GBA Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance
2, you don't
unlock the "altered" version of the game like you did in the SNES game. You
have to find all 96
exits in the GBA version.
Chupperson: Also, more enemies change their appearances in the GBA
MEGAß¥TE: Side note: Apparently the original SMW programmers were
even considering changing the Goombas in the SNES version, but didn't.
ok,dear cool malbag dude,
im 10 years old and i've been going to your site since i was 6.

David Dayton: I'll leave this to one of our resident SMRPG experts.
Sapphira: *Puts thermometer in J.J.'s mouth* Hmm... He does seems to
be rather cool. J.J., what have I told you about locking yourself in the
Chupperson: Hoo boy. Get to level 18 or higher, bring lots of Pick Me
Ups and Mushrooms and other healthy items... Use Geno and Peach. Have Peach
use Group Hug a lot.
Lizard Dude: I like this guy's writing style for some reason.
Deezer: At least JJ's not frozen-solid.
MEGAß¥TE: Well, considering I was about 10 levels below the
recommended level for all the major battles, maybe you shouldn't ask me this
question. Heh, funny how a good portion of those consoles are older than
the writer. Glad to see he has been privileged with classic goodness.
David Dayton: That's something, it is.
Chupperson: O . . . kay . . .
Lizard Dude: Hey, neat! I, too, like MS Paint now and then.
Hi, guys! You guys are one of my fav. places to get Mario info!
(you have interesting features too)
Anyway, I was browsing though the older mailbags and in the 30th November
I noticed your little parody of the Beatles song "When I'm 64" I liked it so
I went to the trouble of writing a version of it that fits over the whole
song! Here it is:
(to the tune of the Beatles song 'When I'm 64')
As you get older,
and your games change,
a year or so from now...
Jumping, shooting, flying around,
Mario squirting water all over the town.
You'll still have your classic system,
Though its games aren't at the store...
Will you still keep me,
Will you still play me, the Nintendo 64?
You'll be older too...
And if you say the word, I will stay with you!
I could be handy making friends lose
Then you've clearly won!
You can hurl Boswer in the fireside,
Sunday morning, take a kart for a ride!
Finding a Deku Scrub hiding in weeds, who could ask for more?
Will you still keep me,
Will you still play me, the Nintendo 64?
Every summer, we can rent a cartridge from the aisles so bright, if you are
We shall scrimp and save!
That set of buttons sitting on your knee,
With buttons like 'C up' and 'A'!
Send me a postcard, drop me a line
Stating point of view,
Indicate precisely all the buttons you pressed
Then cross your fingers and hope for the best!
Let me see your answer, see how you did,
Congratulations, you have top score!
You will still keep me,
You will still play me, the Nintendo 64!
I hope you like it!
David Dayton: So, when are you recording this for us?
Sapphira: Heh. (and no, that line is not your official trademark, CW,
so I can use it, too! >:P )
Chupperson: Get me my lawyer. ...And didn't I see
this song all fully parodied like this before?
Lizard Dude: I always said 'up C'.
MEGAß¥TE: Sapphira... Sapphire...

8.How long has the Big N been working on 128marios?
9.Do you have a pic of 128 marios
David Dayton: 1) Maybe. 2) Nope. 3) It's coming, eventually. 4) $35.
5) Nope. 6) Ahem.
7) Yes. 8) Long enough. 9) I'm sure Deezer does.
Sapphira: 6) Why, thank you! ^_~
Lizard Dude: -_-
Deezer: <-- rules. 9) We have pictures of the "Mario 128"
technical demo shown a few years ago, but nothing on the upcoming game
MEGAß¥TE: 3. Last I heard (a few months ago) it was 60% complete. 6.
Heh I didn't know Deezer got a job at the Dept. of Energy... j/k.
I would like to be able to download Mario's Picross could u please let me
I could go about doin that???
David Dayton: Illegally, I'd imagine.
Sapphira: Tsk, tsk...
We upgraded to windows XP and Mario Teaches Typing 2 no longer works.
It hangs as soon as it starts up after recommending 256-color mode.
This isn't an option for us only 16-bit and 32-bit color. Is there
an upgrade for windows XP? I went to the web site listed on the software
www.brainstormfun.com, and was redirected to webways - no help there that I
David Dayton: Sorry. Windows XP is rather incompatible with a lot of
Lizard Dude: Actually, before giving up try Windows 95 compatibility
Find the executable or program shortcut icon you'd like to run.
Right-click the icon and select Properties.
Click the Compatibility tab and place a checkmark next to the text labeled
"Run this program in compatibility mode."
Select the operating system that the program was originally intended to run
You may need to fine-tune the three fields under "Display Settings" if an
older program requires 640x480 resolution or 256 colors.
Try starting the program after making these changes. If it still gives you
trouble, try a different operating system. If the program was written for
Win95 and worked fine in Win98, there's nothing that says it still won't
work fine with Win98.
In conclusion, the situation isn't quite as dreary as Dayton makes it out to
be for most programs.
Deezer: I wish I had XP <-- not an emoticon.
MEGAß¥TE: There are always emulators and virtual machines for the desperate.
can i get a description of the commercial for the game boy camera?
i want to know if im thinking of the right product.
- T L
David Dayton: "SMILE! You're on Game Boy Camera!"
Sapphira: I am?! @_@ Umm...*smiles*
Lizard Dude: That one cracked the lens for sure.
Deezer: Just wait till Sapphira gets this mailbag back...
MEGAß¥TE: No, really...
Hi mailbag peoples! Im happy because todays my birthday!
Also, in the Nickalodeon 2003 kids choice awards, Charles Angels played
Mario Party 4. They played the level where Luigi's on a raft in the
middle of these big waves. Afterward they got dunked in pasta noodles.
Well see ya, I got to go tell 31,600,952 more web sites about my B-day.
David Dayton: Hey, Mario in the news, again.
Sapphira: Whee! Um...and happy birthday, I guess. XD
Charles Angels: . . .
Lizard Dude: How've you been Charles? And Mrs. Angels?
MEGAß¥TE: Why don't you just submit your birthday to a spam server?
I am so new to the game cube but I love Mario.
I've found that the latest version is only for Gameboy Advanced but
someone mentioned to me that there is an attachment that I could
use enabling me access to the latest game through the cube.
Can you help me? I am so linguistically uninformed regarding
aspect of gaming. Thanks!
David Dayton: Sure. If you buy a "Game Boy Player", you can play any
Game Boy, Game Boy Color, or Game Boy Advance game on your GameCube. You
should be able to
get a Game Boy Player at most toy and video game stores for about $50 or so.
Keep in touch with any other questions you might have!
Sapphira: Say...could you buy me one for Christmas?
Deezer: Hey wait, an e-mail from another female. :D
Hey TMK Mailbag Answering Guy De Jour: More like De Everyfiveweeks.
Hope I mailed this to the right adress. I am a South American excessive
Mario-related products. I have a few inquiries and random whinings I'd like
to share with you.
1 - A while ago David Dayton asked a Brazillian person how much did
GameCubes cost where
she lived. I know the prices are different in different countries, but I'm
GameCubes in most of Latin America (except Mexico) cost over 300 dollars,
the cheapest gamesre all over than 120 dollars. What a rip-off. I'd rather
& Handling expenses to the UPS guy who forwards my Amazon.com purchases.
2 - Months ago I sent a message about a Mario sticker that came alongside
only comercialized in South America, which I'm sure is official because it
" & 1993 Nintendo. All Rights Reserved", even though it looks kind of
can't scan it, because I don't think there is any chemical that will destroy
but keep the Mario picture intact, or at least as clear as it has sustained
the past 10 years. I'm open for any suggestions.
3 - Why does everyone hate Toadette so much? When we were introduced to all
that travelled to Delfino Isle with Mario, Peach & Toadsworth in Super
we finally saw that the word "Toad" was used to refer to any Mushroom-Headed
not an individual. But for example, we had all somehow assumed that even
were many Yoshis, the one in Mario multiplayer games was the one from SMW2.
So we can
still think the Toad in the Mario library of games might be an individual
the one in SMS with the red dots). So maybe Toadette is supposed to be an
exists solely for the purpose of establishing the fact that there are female
Mushroom-Headed People. I rest my case.
P.S.: I know J.J. hates people who use fake names, but he already hates me,
some reason I'm sure, so I wish to remain as Ace ETP. Thanks In Advance.
- Tito/Ernesto D. Pampin/Ace
David Dayton: 1) I don't blame you. Where in South America are you?
2) Put the entire
item on a scanner, then cover it with a towel to darken it. 3) Toad and
Yoshi both suffer from
this lack of identity problem.
Sapphira: 1) Bummer... :/ 2) You could take a digital photo... 3)
Actually, I believe the "Mushroom People" as a whole were first called
"Toads" in Paper Mario. Like Yoshi, Toad is both an individual character
and a collective group. There are definitely female Toads--play SMRPG or PM
and see for yourself. My main problem with "Toadette" is that she is a
never-seen-before-brand-new-out-of-nowhere character. AND they have her
FEATURED! Why make a new character when there are plenty of other
recognizable ones that would pair nicely with Toad?
Chupperson: Like who? Besides one of the female Toads from PM, or
Raini or someone.
Lizard Dude: There were many Yoshis in SMW2.
MEGAß¥TE: 3) I don't hate Toadette, but those spores are a bit
Sapphira: Okay, now that I've played MKDD, she's not so bad. I still
stand by my opinion, though: someone else would've been better. Like
Toadworth, Chupperson. >:P
Hello, you've probably seen me on the message boards, but anyway, I
haven't gotten, let alone played Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. I was
if there were power-ups in the game. Thank you, and good night.
David Dayton: Depends on what you mean. There are Mushrooms and 1up
Mushrooms in the
game, used as recovery items. There are references to various items, but
there are no power-up
items that cause a physical change to the Mario bros.
Sapphira: Woohoo! I'm not the only one without M&L! XD GASP! Yes,
Markio, I used "XD"! Shocking, no!? XD <-- There it is again! @_@
Lizard Dude: XD
Sapphira: Windows XP?
David Dayton: You know Samantha, I take it.
Sapphira: Who? ROM? Tsk...why don't you BUY the game?
Lizard Dude: If you think Mario Rocks, DON'T PIRATE HIS GAMES AND
KILL HIS COMPANY. Instead, kindly give them $30 American.
Deezer: Who is Sammy?
Have you guys witnessed the amazing feat of the Super Mario Bros. 3
speed run!? It's a video of someone beating Super Mario Bros. 3 in 11
minutes. Sure, he uses warp whistles and exploits almost every glitch in
the game, but you should see him rack up around 70+ 1-ups in the tank
stages of World 8! Here's where you can download the video:
Of course, if you've already seen this video (which you probably
have...I mean, you're a Mario site and all...but just in case...) then
this e-mail is pretty useless. In that case you can just ignore this
e-mail or rag on me in your mailbag. I care not what the final decision
is. I'm just bored and want to spread the awesomeness of this video!
(The player probably cheated a bit 'cause it shows some seemingly
impossible things, but it entertained me for 11 minutes so I don't
David Dayton: Hey, Megabyte would love to answer THIS one, wouldn't
Chupperson: *waits for MB's detailed technical explanation of how and
why it is completely false*
Lizard Dude: He'll probably say something about how nothing in the
game engine was hacked, but that the player used an emulator for super
slo-mo and the power to pick back up from right before he messed up if he
ever messed up and mention the fact that he messed up over 40,000 times
(more, even, than frames in the movie). It's still a very impressive feat
and took two years to do. Bow down - you couldn't do it.
Deezer: I'd like to see a video of someone doing it for real.
MEGAß¥TE: What I said, and LD repeated. If you care for the details,
the emulator was Famtasia, which has a movie recording feature. It also
allows you to restart the movie wherever and whenever you want, but it does
keep a counter of how many times you exploit this. The movie creator
restarted the recording 40,268 times though there are only 39,837 frames in
the recording. Also, on the guy's website (address found at the end of the
movie, but the site is in Japanese), he claims never intended people to
think that this was real. What he did NOT do, as some people have
suggested, is design and paste each frame together to make the movie or use
cheat codes. Everything in the movie is possible, it would likely just take
a machine to reproduce it for real. Here's the original FMV (Famtasia Movie).
In your last e-mail, a reader mistakenly pointed out that Yeardley Smith
provided the voice for Yoshi in the Super Mario World cartoon. He is
lying, because I know the truth. Yoshi's voice was actually done by
Andrew Sabiston, who would later go on to do Diddy Kong's voice in the
Donkey Kong Country cartoon. Also, I'd like to point out that Toadette
is not Toad's girlfriend; she is his sister.
- Nintendo Maximus
David Dayton: But WHICH Toad, hmmm?
Sapphira: Who? What? Huh? Man, I REALLY need to get MKDD...
Chupperson: When the heck did he get a sister? This is not like LoZ
where you can randomly jump from one Link to the next...
Lizard Dude: There's no evidence on this 'sister' theory.
Deezer: The truth is out there, as they say.
1.Your site is perfect.You're pretty dang lucky because I usually hate some
Mario sites 'cause they focus on one thing.

2. Staircase weirdness: Go into the castle. Up the stairs and into the door
with a keyhole.
Take about 6-10 steps and walk to the left to the wall. Jump 2 times and you
will appear on the staircase above.
3. On slip sliding away, follow the strip of coins leading into the wall,
go straight through the wall to a very big shortcut.

up all the way up and to the left. "KEEP THE CONTROLL STICK ALL THE WAY
BACK TOWARDS YOU UNTILL EXPLAINED OTHERWISE!" Fire and take damage,
bounce back into cannon. Do process again. If you did it right, you

I have a new glitch for Super Mario Sunshine. I didn't know how I did it
but I went inside 2 of the sand dunes. The pyrimid shaped dune and one
that was shaped like an igloo.

David Dayton: Weird.
Chupperson: I've heard of this.
Lizard Dude: I haven't.
MEGAß¥TE: Umm more info would be nice... This reminds me of the
final battle. TWICE (out of two face-offs) I've butt-stomped on one of the
corners and gone straight through the floor to my death. Has this happened
to anyone else?
David Dayton: For the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo released a small
device called the
eReader. It lets you scan in special trading cards to unlock extra game
features, or even entire
games. Right now the eReader is only available in Japan, the USA, and
Australia. If you go to
you will find
more than you want to know about it.
Sapphira: I'd like an e-Reader, too, for Christmas... And
M&L...and MKDD... And a GBA/GCN connection cable... and...
Chupperson: ...22,000 pickles!
Lizard Dude: ...and a brand new SCV!
MEGAß¥TE: You can always import. GBA games and accessories are
compatible across regions, however e-cards may not be, so make sure
whichever region you choose, you get the reader and cards from the same
David Dayton: Kat's 5 years old, you know. Wario must change his
residence fairly often,
or perhaps the castle is just his "country place".

Heheh...Never mind... Ooh! Goodie! I get to use the soap again! Whee!
*washes FalcovsLeon20's mouth out with soap* Will you people never learn?
Chupperson: Falco vs. Leon. Ahahahah.
Well, I see I got a response on the mailbag, so I'll respond as well. =P
Anyway, The codes I used were chosen randomly in a Dreamcast Emulator,
Specifically NesterDC. I was picking some of the most likely Cheat-Cheat
type codes, and I don't remember the exact ones. (****, when you have to
push a button to turn it on, it's hard to remember the order. =P) I
know if you'll throw the mail out because it has to do with emulation
and the like, but hopefully it'll get up. It was interesting to
what could have happened in the game, like all those extras that were
taken out. Maybe World 9 was going to be a good/bad ending type thing?
The world may never know.
Well, it turns out that that effect was caused by a single code. If you
know of NesterDC, and have a copy where you can access cheats menus,
then go to the SMB3 cheats. There you should find one called something
like "Raise turbo while standing." Anyway, it may be a misplaced cheat
that causes the game to think you beat the airship whenever you enter
the level or something. I dunno. Try it yourself. I'm not really wanting
to test it on a regular Emulator, so I don't know if it'd work there
too, if someone happened to find the cheat on the net somewhere. Now, I
don't know if I brought up the alternate ending stuff, but if a Gameboy
cartridge could hold something of the like (with Kirby's Dreamland 2), I
think a NES should be able to do that easily. Even if it wasn't even
intended in the first place and I'm ranting about it stupidly. Bleh.
David Dayton: I wonder what he's talking about.
Sapphira: *washes Ultimo's mouth out with soap* Wow...Two people in a
Lizard Dude: He's talking about SMB3 having multiple endings at some
point in development, perhaps?
MEGAß¥TE: Baseless speculation will get you nowhere.
