If Super Mario Bros. Was a Nickelodeon Cartoon

(click to enlarge)

Have you seen what passes for children’s television these days? Cartoons are now more cracked out than ever before, and I grew up in the days of CatDog and Ren and Stimpy, so that’s saying something. Artist Dirk Erik Schultz‘s rendition of Super Mario Bros. would fit right in with the current cartoon climate, and he’s produced a series of illustrations rendering the Mario gang as hyper exagerrated cartoons, even more so than they were already.

I’ve got a whole gallery of his work after the jump, and he’s got some pretty elaborate pieces in there. It’s like a cross between Alice and Wonderland and a dream I had after I ate a four month old burrito. Check them out below:

    If Super Mario Bros. ***WERE*** … ****WERE*****……

    Great article, though. ^_^

  • If I’m referring to the game as a single entity isn’t it “was”? If I’m referring to THE Super Mario Bros. as two people that would be “were,” yes?

    Umm… hmm…. alright, carry on.

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you should publish more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but usually
    people don’t speak about these issues. To the next! Kind regards!!
