-To all Paisanos who come, we welcome you to the SMASH!-
The Super Mario Adventure Silliness Hour (or the SMASH for short) will be a new animated variety television series based on the Mario series of video games set to air as one of the first original series of programs on the Nintendo Entertainment Network television channel (that is if it gets sold and sent to air). The series will be produced by Omnicron Television (scripts) via DHX Media and Atomic Cartoons (animation) and distributed by Nintendo through the possible Nintendo Entertainment Network.
The SMASH will mark the return of Mario and company to worldwide television in a new comedy-action-variety cartoon set in our world and their universe, where new adventures and dangers await around every corner and can lead to the most hilarious parodies or the worst and most dangerous enemies.
The SMASH will allow for writers and Mario/Yoshi/Wario/Donkey Kong fans from all across the world to come together and write in their ideas to add to the vast chronology/canon of these franchises as well as broaden horizons of what animation and children’s television can do against censorship.
When the doors open at Mario and company's new Mushroom Kingdom Studios Theater, Restaurant and Nightclub, nothing will ever go completely according to plan. Be it a recurring segment, sketch, song or backstage plot, you know things are going to go out of control. That is because when Mario and the gang are in charge, nothing can stop them from having a good time or having to stop some end-of-the-universe threat.
The SMASH will be about more than promoting or selling merchandise and or the games themselves, but be mainly to allow other writers to develop all kinds of plot lines and phlebotinums to be taken into consideration for future games set in this vast universe of Mario/Yoshi/Wario/Donkey Kong by Nintendo (Anything that has a possible TV-Y to TV-14 rating is welcome).
The SMASH could possibly be called the spawn of the Super Mario Bros. cartoons crossed with The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Hanna-Barbera's World of Super Adventure, Kablam!, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Cartoon Planet, The Muppet Show, Disney's House of Mouse, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, the Pokémon (series) anime, Animaniacs, The Electric Company and The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour. Any subtlety will come with levels only seen at the Richard M. Nixon School for Wayward Boys. (Whew!)
ProtagonistsMario - Voiced by Walker Boone. First appearing in 1981's Donkey Kong, Mario has ever since become one of the many mascots of Nintendo alongside Pikachu. Even if he is one of the bravest heroes of the Mushroom Kingdom, the pressure is a bit much for Mario to handle even with help every day. In order to combat fatigue, Mario and all his compatriots have set up a combined restaurant/stage theater/movie theater/nightclub to stage our show as emcee. In sketches like Mario's Fun Land and the backstage episodic plots, we get to see some of the different sides of Mario; to laugh (when he gets shown up every now and then), cry (pains he has to endure and heal), and beg for more at. To see a normally happy-go-lucky hero lose his cool will be the day all of Dark Land freezes over in terror.
Luigi - Voiced by a Danny Wells or Art Carney sound-alike. First appearing in 1983's Mario Bros., Luigi has always been seen by both us and Nintendo as the Ed McMahon to Mario's Johnny Carson. Having always been the more responsible and even cowardly brother of the Mario Bros (Both of their last names being Segale), Luigi sees this show as a chance to help him break out of his shell even more. With a little encouragement and support, he becomes the leading comedian for the show, with its segment "Luigi's Comedy Gold" proving him to be the funny-man Fozzie Bear to Mario's straight-man Kermit the Frog. At his worst, he often gets involved with get-rich-quick schemes or his jokes befalling the audience. In spite of this; even over, under and through bouts of occasional sibling rivalry, Mario and Luigi together have saved the Mushroom Galaxy time and time again.
Princess Peach - Voiced by Tara Strong (using her Twilight Sparkle voice). Appearing first in 1985's Super Mario Bros., Princess Peach Toadstool has been seen as the prime damsel-in-distress of the Mushroom Kingdom, being a perpetual kidnap victim. On this show however, she is trying to prove that she can be more than that, and be more than just what Nintendo and the fans have made her out to be. Now that Peach can be an Badass Princess 90% of the time too, she will take on a more active role, even starring as her own heroic alter-ego Birdgirl in the eponymous segment of the show. In almost all of the backstage plots, sketches and songs, we just might get a glimpse into what life and politics are like for the ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom. A few moments or craziness or lapses in judgment are rarely, if ever a handicap on her ability of being the cool-headed voice of reason for the Kingdom and the show. Peach may prove to be just as a good a politician as she does in being lead singer, magician, comedienne and show-planner for the series.
Princess Daisy - Voiced by Ashleigh Ball (using a mix of her Mary Test and Rainbow Dash voices). First appearing in 1989's Super Mario Land, and just as with Luigi, Princess Daisy Sarasa of Sarasaland is seen by both Nintendo and the fans as the tomboyish Bill Wendell to Peach's girly-girl David Letterman. If that is the case, Daisy intends to do something about it through this show, AND THAT'S WHAT SHE'S GONNA DO, DANG IT! But she will try to go about it in as nice and peaceful a way as possible. After all, one doesn't think her magic powers dealing with flowers and nature are of any use at first glance, but wait until you see the fur fly (GIVING THE NEIGHBORS GOSSIP!) for her. On the show, Daisy is the resident daredevil artist who hosts the regular segment Daisy the Daring (Evel Knievel meets Fear Factor meets Gonzo the Great), where she performs the wackiest and wildest tricks and stunts for a paying audience (e.g. self-hypnosis to hold a one-ton weight, a death-defying gymanstic obstacle course or a motorcycle jump way out into the balconies).
Toad - Voiced by Samantha Kelly. First appearing in 1985's Super Mario Bros., we have grown accustomed to and made memes out of his old catchphrase "Thank You Mario, But Our Princess Is In Another Castle!". Here, Toad is often seen in the backstage plots, sketches and songs as the Bandleader (Musical Director) and even Assistant Manager for Mario. He often voices his wish to be a hero instead of a burden for both Mario and company, that is IF either the network and Nintendo's developers would LET HIM be able to have a starring role. In the meantime, he serves as the leader for the Toad Brigade that also involves Toadette and Toadsworth on "This Toad House" while preparing for any threats to our heroes and the Mushroom Galaxy altogether. He is in a relationship with Toadette who often cheers for his acts while booing others, which she has shown to reciprocate. Will they ever find a moment's peace to express their amour in an adventure?
Yoshi - Voiced by Cathy Weseluck (using a deeper version of her Spike the Dragon voice). First appearing in 1991's Super Mario World, the green dinosaur Yoshi has since become synonymous as Mario's Batbelt in times of crisis. As one of the show's many performers and the head waiter for the restaurant operations, Yoshi is seen as cute, somewhat clumsy at times, but ever lovable. Usually just speaking his own name, he will grow a bigger vocabulary and even create some songs that will remind us of Space Ghost’s enemy Brak at times. On the inside, he is a little child that is curious about the world, but can also utter at both crucial or unnecessary times the darnedest remarks ever. He hopes to be a great comedian just like his best friend, Luigi. Between the two of them, they are "son" and "Mama Luigi". He leads with Birdo the segment "Yoshi's Pride", which is often shown in tandem or competition with the similar "DK Jungle Follies".
Donkey Kong - Voiced by Brian Drummond. First appearing in 1981's Donkey Kong as the eponymous character, Donkey Kong has since gotten out of the damsel-kidnapping business and lives a semi-peaceful life on Donkey Kong Island with the Kongs. Hearing of Mario's need for a super-handy technician, he has signed on to make sure all of the technical and theater equipment runs as planned. With the Kongs help, he can be a powerful hero in both the serial and the segment "DK Jungle Follies", which is often shown in tandem or competition with the similar segment "Yoshi's Pride". He often tries to advise his "nephew" and partner Diddy Kong on the segment "Diddy's Nuggets of Joy".
Diddy Kong - Voiced by Andrew Francis.First appearing in 1994's Donkey Kong Country, Diddy Kong is Donkey Kong's "nephew" and partner-in-crime who will never be caught dead without his trademark lucky hat. Whatever rolls their way, Diddy will be ready to join his uncle in confronting it. As the show's production assistant, he hopes to get more credit from Nintendo and be able to headline star in any game or show that would suit him. In the meantime, he hosts the segment "Diddy Kong's Nuggets of Joy".
Wario - Voiced by Marc Graue. First appearing in 1992's Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, Wario is the extremely greedy bookkeeper for the show. He will do anything to get money for both the show or himself, be it stealing or going on an adventure in the main serial. Often serving as a minor villain or anti-hero, his side ventures are often what is funding the show, be it treasure hunting or managing Diamond City's minigame firm aptly named WarioWare. Often, his methods land him in trouble that the others bail him out of.
Waluigi - Voiced by Tony Rosato. First appearing in 2000's Mario Tennis 64, Waluigi is seen as a comic relief character. He is a generally overconfident character who is easily angered. He also shows very poor sportsmanship; Waluigi is quick to taunt opponents, break into victory dance, and cheer for himself, while he is easily angered when enemies makes even a little progress. Being the valet parking attendant, he often aspires to join his brother/friend and sometimes boss Wario on stage and maybe hijack the show away from Mario and Luigi's grasp, but he will stop is his crush Rosalina orders him to do it.
Rosalina - Voiced by Nicole Oliver (using her Princess Celestia voice). First appearing in 2007's Super Mario Galaxy, Rosalina has become one of the new fan favorite characters of Nintendo and the Mario crew with her kind, wise and mother-like demeanor. Once the keeper of the Lumas and commander of the Comet Observatory, "Rosie" now operates as reservation clerk and sometimes actor on the show. She is often one who joins in the sketches shared between her, Peach, Daisy and one of Mario's other friends, Pauline.
Pauline - Voiced by Tabitha St. Germain (using a calmer and more Earth version of her Princess Luna voice). First appearing in 1981's Donkey Kong, one of Mario's other friend is one of the few damsels in the Mario series who is not a princess, but simply a normal citizen of the world. She returns to the Mushroom Galaxy in the show, where she and Peach hit it off really well. Each time they meet up in adventures, Mario will feel left out when Peach, Daisy and Rosalina start going out with her, becoming like the Four Amigos. On the show, she is the resident gossip and rumor columnist who is on the Talk Spots with any live-action or animated guest stars that come on the show. Her gossip and rumors will sometimes lead to trouble for the show and its stars every now and then.
Toadette - Voiced by Samantha Kelly. Not only is Toadette being the prime love interest for Toad, she and Birdo also are frequent guests to the show as the peanut gallery hecklers or cheerleaders for some parts of the show, a la Statler and Waldorf in the balconies. They provide a contrast to what Wario and Waluigi whenever they are up in the balconies. Upbeat and nice, she can also unleash the inner courage to stand up to even worse bad guys than Bowser, King Boo, Petey Piranha and Wart. In battle, she makes for an expert marksman. In between adventures, she and Luigi will sometimes collaborate on his rather scatter-brained get-rich-quick schemes that usually end in frustration. She usually ends up on the better end of them.
Birdo - Voiced by Jen Taylor. Serving as both a love interest to Yoshi and cheerleader/peanut gallery heckler for the show is a hard task, but Birdo enjoys it. She often some-times goes on stage with Yoshi in duet comedy acts and or songs. First appearing as an enemy in Super Mario Bros. 2 and Doki Doki Panic, Birdo warmed up and became a much more likable character. With that and her love for Yoshi came a loss of her dark side as she used her projectile snout for the light side. She is Waldorf to Toadette's Statler.
Candy Kong -
Dixie Kong -
Professor E. Gadd - Voiced by Charles Martinet. The mad scientist is a helpful, scatter-brained soul named Professor Elvin Gadd. He often comes up with inventions that our heroes use that get them out of sticky jams. When he is not providing ammunition for our heroes, he hosts the segment "E. Gadd the Science Lad". Like Bill Nye and Beakman's World, the wily old professor teaches scientific concepts with experiments that only a Koopa Troopa can hope to survive.
Bowser - Voiced by Scott Burns.
Queen Clawdia Koopa
Magikoopas - Consisting of Kamek (Voiced by Scott McNeil), Kammy Koopa (Voiced by Grey DeLisle) and Kamella (Voiced by Tress MacNeille)
Wart - Voiced by John de Lancie.
Captain Syrup - Voiced by Kathleen Barr. First appearing in 1994's Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, Captain Maple Syrup is the roguish, yet somewhat admirable pirate captain of the Black Sugar Gang. Since she can be somewhat stingy at times, Syrup is often a rival of the master of greed himself, Wario. Her base of operations is Kitchen Island, and her pirate ship is named the SS Tea Cup.
King K. Rool - Voiced by Jim Cummings. First appearing in Donkey Kong Country, this king is the malevolent ruler of the Kremlings and a secondary main villain in the show. Being the archenemy of Donkey Kong and his allies, King K. Rool has repeatedly tried to steal the Kongs' Banana Hoard for reasons unknown to anyone and has even kidnapped members of the Kong Family on various occasions. His name is a pun on the word cruel, which often describes his actions and his personality. After Wart, King K. Rool will be the second most recurring main villain in the show.
