Super Mario World was a short-lived animated television series loosely based on the Super NES video game of the same name. It was the third and thus far last Saturday morning cartoon based on the Super Mario Bros. NES and Super NES series of video games. The show only aired thirteen episodes due to Captain N: The Game Master's cancellation on NBC.
The series centered on Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool, now living in Dinosaur Land (sometimes also called Dinosaur World) with Yoshi, who was depicted on the show as a curious child-like dinosaur with a large appetite and several phobias. King Koopa (otherwise known as Bowser) and the Koopalings were also around, having followed the Super Mario Bros. and the Princess to Dinosaur Land.
Unlike in the game, Dinosaur Land was depicted as being populated with cavepeople, including a pre-adolescent caveboy named Oogtar, who replaced the role of Toad (Oogtar even had the same voice actor as Toad, John Stocker). Some episodes revolved around Mario trying to introduce a modern invention to the cavepeople in an attempt to make their lives easier, only for the Koopas to twist it into an evil scheme. It is unclear whether the characters had traveled back in time (in the episode "Rock TV", King Koopa mentions "there's no TV here in the Stone Age [because] it hasn't been invented yet"), or if Dinosaur Land was simply a "lost valley"-esque island that the characters had come to (in the flashback episode "Mama Luigi", Luigi simply mentions that he and the others came to Dinosaur Land without any mention of time travel).
The show was originally aired on Saturday mornings on NBC in the 1991-92 season, the last year the network programmed an animated children's block before the launch of a Saturday edition of Today. It was featured in a half-hour time slot with a shortened version of Captain N: The Game Master, titled Captain N & The New Super Mario World (also erroneously titled Captain N & Super Mario Bros. World in the commercial bumpers). Episodes of Super Mario World were later shown as part of the syndication package Captain N and the Video Game Masters. Afterwards, the series was split up from Captain N altogether and shown in time-compressed reruns on as part of Mario All-Stars on Family Channel, and later USA Network. In the United Kingdom, however, the show was still broadcast as Captain N & The New Super Mario World.
Unlike the previous two Mario cartoons, the show was not widely distributed on home video in the NTSC region, where its only release was the inclusion of the show's Christmas episode on the 1996 VHS release Super Mario Bros. Super Christmas Adventures. Meanwhile, two PAL tapes were released in the United Kingdom. More recently, the series was released on DVD in Australia. This series is the most short-lived of the three American Mario animated series.
Differences between the series and the game
The show takes place in Dinosaur World where Yoshi lives with a preadolescent caveman named Oogtar. In addition, Yoshi's Island is populated with cavemen instead of Yoshis. Several names were changed from the game as well: Forest of Illusion was called Enchanted Forest, and Vanilla Dome was referred to as the Lava Pits. Furthermore, enemies featured in the game were rarely called by their in-game names on the show, and Bowser was called King Koopa. He also had his all-green appearance from the first cartoon. Mario, Luigi and the Princess all retained their original NES designs as well: red and green overalls for Mario and Luigi, and red hair for the Princess. Another notable fact was that Luigi found Yoshi, and when he hatched Yoshi was small and was not born with his saddle, as revealed when Luigi told him the story of how Yoshi was born. Also, the Koopalings were still referred to by their nicknames.

Unlike the first two series, Super Mario World is rarely ever edited, except on the syndicated series Super Mario All Stars. On the episode "Ghost R Us", the entire scene, where Yoshi faces the Big Boo after entering the Haunted House, was cut due to the scene was too long. No songs were ever replaced in this series since these songs aren't copyrights.

"That’s what Vancouver actresses Diane Brown and Tabitha St. Germain do with the delightful black comedy, The Baroness and the Pig. (...) St. Germain – better known to Vancouver audiences as Paulina Gillis – plays the Baroness as a naïve gentlewoman, full of prissy mannerisms and twittering, bird-like movements."
