'The real Super Mario' dies aged 84
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.
