Out of the Blue

Happy Mario Day! (Mar10, get it?). Here's a salute to the persistent little plumber. I'm pretty old school on this topic, as my favorite Mario game was is first appearance in the original Donkey Kong. So here's some similarly vintage trivia about the character: Shigeru Miyamoto wanted to make a Popeye game but couldn't get the license, so he cooked up Mario, Donkey Kong, and Princess Peach as substitutes for Popeye, Bluto, and Olive. I'm guessing the IP value of those Donkey Kong characters probably now dwarfs the value of the Popeye cast, huh? Sometimes the best deals are the ones you don't make.

Cool bit of trivia there Blue. So that is kind of like E.T. eating Reese's Pieces instead of M &M's I guess.

Yeah, did not know that. Think how popular Popeye might be right now, instead of a relative unknown.

I remember the Popeye game that was made and it was pretty fun... for a quarter They had a busted machine at the local laundry mat where if you put in a dime over and over again(like 20 times) it would register a credit
