Mario Bubsy Bobcat Mario Segale

I've often joked Bubsy was "The hit points of Mario with the speed of Sonic"   I think Bubsy actually owes just as much to Mario as he does to Sonic for the inspiration.  And today, the inspiration for Mario passed away.

I originally heard the news at this other blog:
Rest in peace Mario Segale.  Thanks for inspiring the jumpman that was maybe the first platformer mascot I saw.  Maybe it was him or Bounty Bob from Miner 2049er.  Not sure.  Pretty close there.
In tribute, I found some Mario jokes.  Worth checking out.
