Flickering sprites on ColecoVision

I never noted until now in Donkey Kong on Colecovision, Mario is flickering, best noted in level 2.

Mario seems to be drawn with three sprites. When two mods come out, Mario started flickering.
 
I'm not sure what Mario looks like if he was drawn with only two sprites instead. The game would improve a little, less flickering but Mario might not look good.
 
I never saw Mario flickering in 1980s. Maybe old tvs make Mario less or no flickering at all.






Yeah, Mario have highest priority than the enemies in his NES game so he never flickers.  Only his enemies. ;)

I meant I never saw Mario flickering in 1980s in Donkey Kong for Colecovision.

 

Few people are still enjoying Colecovision, even the end of 1980s.

True.  We were more focused on playing the game back when we're kids.
