Episode Notes
The episode is loosely Parodying "Pirates of Penzance".

The Minions that appear in this episode: Troopa, Goomba, Trouter, Mouser, Triclyde and Clawgrip.

This episode marks the first time Mario used a Starman to become Super Mario, unlike before in the series when he became Super Mario without the aid of a Starman.

This episode marks the first time Mario says "Faster than a vanishing clog! More powerful than an electric drain stake! Its SUPER MARIO!" when he becomes Super Mario. This becomes a on-going thing later in the series.

Koopa's alter-ego in this episode is Long John Koopa.
