30 years ago, Mario and Luigi were at the zenith of their worldwide fame. Unsurprisingly, they would get their own television spin-offs in the form of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show (1989) and The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 (1990) cartoon. These days, the two shows are fairly lost to time (save for some enduring memes) – but a recent discovery might bring back a rush of memories for many older fans.
@max6464646464, a self-professed collector, has apparently obtained almost 200 animation cels and sketches from both series! These transparent sheets were crucial for animating the frames of both cartoons in the past – but were thought to be lost for decades. You can check some of them out below for yourself.

Talk about hitting the jackpot! This is definitely a true treasure for any Mario fan to witness, and it’s good to see that some semblance of the show’s history will stay preserved for time to come.
