Writing for USGamer, Nadia Oxford skillfully remembers the time Barbara Bush appeared on the Super Mario Bros 3 cartoon (and other appearances of the era). It’s a fun, breezy read that captures some levity in what will be sad times for some as they think about the now deceased First Lady.
Either way, Mario and Luigi save George and Barbara Bush, Democracy, and the World by dropping the White House on Wendy O Koopa’s head. Watching this scene now as a cynical 37-year-old, I have to admit it’s still kind of great. Mario just straight-up murders Bowser’s daughter. I’m here for this brand of Mario content.
