You can get stuck in Mario 2 at the very very end, after beating the final boss

Freddy Krueger wins!

JHarris went down the rabbit hole so you don't have to. This post alone is enough to derail my day. I am now afraid to visit the site!

I was SO hoping for soup.

I'm something of a Mario geek. Haven't checked the site yet but does it have the fact that *SPOILER* if you run along the top of the underground level in Mario 1 there is a 'warp zone' that allows you to cheat and skip to later in the game?

It's pretty sweet!

beerperson That's ridiculous. That's just as crazy as my friend who said his cousin found a "Minus World"

There is a lot of great stuff on that blog. Good find and good curation, JHarris.

You can make Mario dance at the top of a vine

I am however disappointed that this led to a gif and not, as it should have in any just universe, to a vine.

And now it's that special time of year when we find out how many people still didn't know that if you held down A and hit start after an SMB1 game over, you'd restart at whatever major world you'd reached.

Definitely deserves a 1UP for all the original concept art (man, Shigeru Miyamoto can really draw...would love to see a version of SMB rendered completely in his original sketches.

Maybe Kuribo's Shoe was only in one level in Mario 3 because it can be used to double-jump

Whoa! I always figured that Kuribo's Shoe was only in one level because it's just too special and awesome to have all the time, like Christmas or really expensive chocolate.

Like Cap'n Crunch "Oops! All Berries" cereal, somebody really ought to do a remake of SMB3 where everything's the same except you're in a Kuribo's Shoe the whole time.
