Super Mario World Episode 13: Mama Luigi Overview
The final episode of the Super Mario World Series, episode thirteen, aired on December, 7th, 1991 in the US on NBC. The episode starts off with Yoshi on his way to bed. He asks that Luigi tell him a bed time story, specifically the one when Luigi finds him and they rescue Princess Toadstool.
He begins his story telling Yoshi how after banishing King Koopa from Mushroom Kingdom, they arrived to Dinosaur World on vacation. They visit Dome City and found that it was empty. They also found themselves facing trouble. The Princess got kidnapped, Mario was getting attacked, and Luigi had a problem of his own as he had to face an enemy himself.
He continues his story by telling Yoshi how he ended up falling for a long time. He safely reached a place where he could bash blocks to try to get something that will help him. He ends up getting an egg which turns out to be Yoshi. Since Luigi was the first person Yoshi saw, he called Luigi "Mama Luigi". After a while, they both end up running into Mario who is looking for Luigi. By this time, Yoshi has proven himself useful to Luigi. Luigi explains the situation to Mario and they all head to go rescue the princess. Thus, Luigi continues with the story until Yoshi is fast asleep.
The story was written by Phil Harnage. This episode can been seen as an adaption of the Super Mario World storyline minus the final battle scene which is better demonstrated in episode three, "Send in the Clown". There are no Koopalings or cave people present.
