Super Mario was by far the iconoclastic definition of what a hero was to me at five years old. He dated a princess, he could shoot fireballs with his fist, what five-year old wouldn’t dig that?

Not this one.

I was all about Super Mario Bros. back then. I had the games, the cards, bed sheets, legos, action figures – I had everything. My nickname was Mario.

I don’t have a inspiring story where Mario helped me overcome some complex issue. I just dug the character. He was cool.  I’ll always appreciate the various influences that the Mario franchise had on my life.

When thinking about it, t shows the significance of kids programs. They are things that people will remember for the entirety of their lives.
