    Here’s a bonus fact about the Super Show. According to the show’s producer, Captain Lou actually offered to legally change his name to Mario! …For some reason. Anyway, here’s my Twitter:

    Quite disturbing that the comic detailing Mario's childhood implies that he had facial hair since birth and a full grown mustache by the time he could walk

    In the Super Nintendo World theme park showcase, Mario and Luigi address Miyamoto as 'dad', confirming that he is their biological father

    Love that Nintendo games are so ungrounded in reality that a simple a question as this video's title calls for a deep-dive into obscure lore

  • unripe THE Berrby

    I love that in the comics when Luigi and Mario are babies they have stubble. 🤣

    Mario's real father is Yoshi. He's actually there for Mario when he needs him most!

    Hopefully the upcoming movie gets into this whole theory and reveals to us who Mario and Luigi's family actually is. Knowing that Kamek will be in the movie, there's definitely gonna be a flashback of some sort. I've always wanted to know the mystery behind Mario and Luigi's childhood past.

    I always love the "Actor runs off-screen to return as a different character" gag. My favorite example has got to be Mark Hamil as himself and his "cousin" Luke Skywalker on The Muppet show.

    "Luigi used to be younger by at least some years, but now they're supposed to be twins"

    I know it's cringy and hilarious to see that the same actors who played the Mario Bros with play the mother and Aunt, but I got to give them respect for the fact that they were comfortable to actually cross-dress and play these characters especially back then. And it was interesting to see them playing a variety of different people. There is such a resemblance between all these family members. That must mean the niece was adopted. She doesn't look anything like the rest of them. Lol

    "It's only a tray."

    I’d say the old man on the tray painting is their father. In the Anime, Mario’s Dad had very similar facial features and the same exact color scheme on his clothing!

    Everyone knows Miyamoto is Mario's father, though that would also make him related to Bowser Jr.......... Wait.

    The existence of Marilyn as Mario and Luigi’s niece implies that Mario and Luigi have a third undisclosed sibling.

    At the Nintendo world store in New York at the interactive Mario kiosk where you get to talk to Mario and Luigi as voiced by Charles Martinet, Mario often refers to his mother as his “Mamma Mia” and his father as his “Papa Pia”

    Pretty sure the actual real answer to questions regarding any parentage of any Mario characters from Nintendo is "Miyamoto is their mother/father".
