Super Mario t-shirts
The character of Mario was first introduced to the world of video games in 1981, as a heroic carpenter (not plumber) in the popular arcade game Donkey Kong. Originally referred to as Jumpman, his mission was to rescue a damsel in distress from a giant ape named Donkey Kong. In 1983, Mario found himself with his first title role and a different job. He starred as a plumber in the arcade game Mario Bros.,
which was later ported to many home video game systems. Mario Bros. also marked the first appearance of Mario's brother, Luigi. The game's popularity was short-lived, and in 1985, it was nearly forgotten when its successor, Super Mario Bros., was released for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Super Mario was not the first scrolling platform game, but it is certainly the biggest and most influential.
Here, we celebrate the best-selling video game of all time with a selection of Super Mario t-shirts, perfect for any fan of the video game icon.

The front of this bestselling Super Mario tee features the adventurous plumber in his tanooki or raccoon suit. A tanooki (or tanuki) is a popular animal from Japanese folklore that is often mistaken for a raccoon. Tanuki appear in numerous anime, manga, and video games. When Mario is in his tanooki suit, he has the ability to turn into a statue for a few seconds. The hard-to-find power-up is a favorite among gamers. The fronts of these Super Mario t-shirts feature the character happily hurrying along in his full-body tanooki suit.
