Super Mario World Episode 8: Party Line Overview
The eighth episode of Super Mario World aired on November 2nd, 1991. None of the Koopas appear in this episode. The episode starts off with Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi taking a walk around Dome City. Mario notices that Dome City can be quite dangerous. He states that people have a lot of accidents and this becomes apparent when Yoshi trips and fall.
Princess Toadstool bandages him up and Luigi suggests that they need an emergency number to call in case of emergencies. Then they really have a big emergency because a huge dinosaur appears before them. They run and hide. Yoshi, in a frantic state, keeps shouting emergency number. Mario explains to him that in order to call for emergency, they need a phone.
He then comes up with an idea to use coconuts and vines to make a phone. Soon, Dome City has pay telephones so if anyone has emergencies, they can make the emergency call. However, this becomes a problem. The vine telephone-wires grow, the cave people neglect their work, and Princess Toadstool is being overworked due to all the phone usage. Mario sees these turn of events and talks it over with Luigi.
All of a sudden, caterpillars try to attack Mario and Luigi. Luigi tries to use the phone to call for help but the lines are busy. They end up having to climb up the phone lines to make an escape. However, Mario falls trying to hit the "? block" that could help them and is in danger. Luigi gets the star out of the block and uses it to save Mario. However, there is still a big problem in Dome City that stills need to be taken care of so Mario and his friends are not done yet.
The story was written by Phil Harnage. This is also the only episode in which Luigi uses a power up.
