Before Sonic had his chance to spindash into the toon scene, Mario and his pals were pretty much busy jumping around and establishing themselves as the dominating force in gaming toons. True, there were many other shows based on videogames shown as well during tha time such as Pac-Man but Nintendo would presist well into the mid-90s shoving that fat plumber onto your face with his never-ending hunger for italian food. Other Nintendo-related animated shows followed suit, although not many were as good or at least, better than the Mario series. I know there were also Anime about the series, but for now I will talk about those series which were shown into American TV back in the day. Still working on these titles so go read what's avialable for now.
