Topic: How come Mario doesn't have a cartoon?

With how popular Mario is, I wish there was a kids cartoon that was actually produced by a good company like how the Pokemon cartoons are. The ones from the early 90's by DiC weren't very good and pretty forgettable. I sort of wish Mario was more popular with kids outside of just the video games. There should be Mario legos and a cartoon.

Nintendo is too uptight after the failure that was the Super Mario Movie. They are deathly afraid of licensing after that debacle.

Uptight indeed. Is it so hard for them to just stick to the source material instead of pulling random crap like making Bowser a human?

Super Mario Bros 3 and Super Mario World had better cartoons.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

Forgetable?
I LOVED The Super Mario Bros Super Show!
Hell i have them all on DVD.
If they're that forgetable, why would someone like myself bother?
I think it's subjective personally.
To each their own sort of thing.

I remember loving the Sonic cartoon back in the early 90s. Anyone remember that?

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

HA HA HA! This thread title is funny for how wrong it is, it had one when it was started out on the NES.

The Megaman Battle Network series is underrated... I think, don't quote me on this.

Off topic, but:

Is there also a reason why there aren't any official Lego sets and minifigures of Mario, Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, ect.? There were countless petitions and none of them worked.

Petitions aren't going to do much if Nintendo and Lego won't work out a licensing deal to get the figures produced (given Nintendo's recent openness to licensing IPs this could change though).

I honestly feel like 4 or 5 of you just skipped past the part of my initial post where I said "there was a Mario cartoon in the 90's produced by DiC.

Probably because that part simply meant you contradicted yourself...or rather, convoluted your point. Your title says "Why Doesn't Mario Have A Cartoon?" Then you state that he has one, it's just not very good and therefore doesn't count because bad things don't exist, or something. Adding a single, solitary word to the title - "Why doesn't Mario have a Good Cartoon?" Is all you'd need to clear up the confusion and solidify your point, yet apparently we're the lazy ones...

Geez... I meant why isn't there a Mario cartoon NOW. No kids are watching the Super Mario Super Show or the Mario 3 cartoon. I'm talking today, in the present.

The Super Show was too perfect for another series to be created.

Of course, I said that the Zelda show was too awful for another series to follow and that didn't come true, so there might still be a chance for a Mario show.

I personally like the Nintendo cartoons(The Super Mario Bros. Super Show, The Legend of Zelda, The Adventure of Super Mario Bros. 3, Captain N & The Video Game Masters, Super Mario World, & Super Mario All-Stars). My favorites were TAoSMB3/CN/TLoZ. My least fav was SMW. I am old enough that I was around when these were new, & I remember watching them new, so nostalgia does play a part in my liking these.

Yeah, a lot of the time the plots were corny, but you have to consider that when these were made, there was not much material to go on, in some cases so early in each game series. For example, a lot of Youtube commenters on the relevent cartoon videos refer to only 2 Triforces in Zelda, & Link's character design. At the time it was made, only The Legend of Zelda, & Adventure of Link were out; Zelda canon had not introduced a 3-piece Triforce yet. It was called a triforce, based solely on its triangular design. Link's design was how the character looked (back) then.

@Munchakoopas: @SmashMario: Nintendo does actually license Mario toys, such as K'Nex, & Mario Kart toys.

@Yellowtails: There are Mario anime.

@Dezzy: The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, or the other one commonly referred to as SatAM?

Edit: Also, i remember watching a youtube review of CN, & the reviewer brought up a good point; a lot of CN's eps(episodes) were based on non-Nintendo ips, & that having all those co.s come together to license their ip for use in a single cartoon dedicated to 1 console was pretty amazing for it's time, & it's debatable if that would ever happen again, in regards to video games-based cartoons.

Edit #2: All, or most, video game cartoons from the 70's/80's/early 90's were generally cheesy. Example: "Mega Man's gonna need my help whether he needs it, or not!" - Roll

I will admit, the Mario 3 cartoon did help develop the personalities of the beloved Koopalings. I didn't like how they made Roy's voice though and Larry/Cheatsy looked like he was always high and like he has down syndrome.

I'll also never forgive them for having Yoshi talk.

I still wish they made a new Mario cartoon based off the more recent games. They can put Daisy, Rosalina, Wario, and the rest of the cast in.

Um, but didn't Yoshi talk originally? I seem to recall him talking in Super Mario World, his first appearance.
