Stupid Mario Brothers, shortened as Stupid Mario Bros. or simply abbreviated as SMB, is an American fantasy/comedy web series and parody of Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers video game franchise, created by Rich Alvarez and Chris Muller.

The series tells the story of the show's main characters Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi (who used to be Mario and Luigi's arch-rivals) going on wild adventures in the Real World to stop the show's villains Ganondorf, Bowser, Nox Decious, the Darkness, and Kamek. Along the way, they meet a variety of friends and enemies that all play their part in changing the Real World as they know it. The first episode aired on December 29, 2007, with huge success and millions of views. The series finale aired on June 5, 2012, with the conclusion of Season Five. Originally, Alvarez planned to create Season Six, but due to most of the cast members moving away, he was forced to end the series at Season Five.

A film based on the series titled Stupid Mario Brothers: The Movie was released on August 27, 2009.

While the series has officially ended, Austin Stevenson and Daen Olson tried to create a spin-off series titled Stupid Pokémon Friends. However, conflict between the RMA cast and the cast of Stupid Pokemon Friends resulted in the series being cancelled after the first episode was released.

A spiritual sequel to Stupid Mario Brothers titled That Stupid Video Game Show was released on January 17, 2013. A canon sequel, Super Mario: The Plumber Knight Returns, was released in 2014, with another sequel, Stupid Mario World, being released November 20, 2015. A follow up movie, Stupid Mario Brothers: Legacy, was released on December 9, 2017.


Mario and Luigi Pre-SMB 03

Rich Alvarez and Chris Muller as Mario and Luigi

Originally, the Mario and Luigi costumes were created in 2006 as Halloween costumes by Rich Alvarez and Chris Muller. In November 2006, they were used again while the two were in line for the launch of the Nintendo Wii.

Muller had the idea of using the costumes in a video series, but Alvarez turned it down because he thought the concept was too stupid and pointless. Later, Muller and Matt Provencal re-approached Alvarez during lunch at their high school, calling the concept Super Teenage Mario Brothers. However, Alvarez once again turned it down, still seeing it as a stupid concept.

Towards the end of 2007, Alvarez eventually agreed on filming Super Teenage Mario Brothers since they didn't have anything else to do. While editing the video, he decided that since the series was stupid and random, he changed the title to Stupid Mario Brothers.


Rich Alvarez already predicted that the series wouldn't gain RMA Productions a place in YouTube's top 3 most subscribed.

Despite this, Stupid Mario Brothers is still a highly successful YouTube series, its first episode garnering over 2,000,000 views, as of February 2014.

Response was almost unanimously positive during Season One's original broadcast, with most criticism constructive. Although the show and following installments were a big success, popularity has decreased over the years, and it carries on as a slightly niche, cult phenomenon in most circles, with a highly scattered fandom. Many viewers hold a nostalgic attachment for the show.

While many argue that the series' quality degraded significantly over time, most fans agree that it as a whole remains entertaining, despite later installments having less critical merit.
