In the 2nd installment of our series of 80s cartoon commentaries, The Gribshnobler is joined again by The Contrarian, Bo-Flex, Flounder Toehead McGee, and Bungle NoFeet, for a viewing of Mario Meets Koopzilla, an episode of the video game based cartoon The Super Mario Bros. Super Show.  Plus the unveiling of a new (old) song featuring the Gribshnobler rapping badly about Super Mario.

Note: This episode has been given an explicit tag for language and obnoxious/occasionally offensive humor.

Watch along with us on youtube:

Purchase the show on DVD from Amazon: Volume 1 and Volume 2.
