Love 'Em and Leave 'Em - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: After Luigi says "Let's play cupid," he peeks around the corner along with Peach and Toad down at Mario going down the aisle with his "bride-to-be." Luigi, as expected, has been wearing green all episode, but when you see them peeking around the corner, Luigi's hat has become red. In the very next shot showing Luigi from behind, his hat has returned to green. (00:14:40)

ArchProctor

Toad Warriors - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, when Koopa's state Troopa makes the Mario gang pull over, both vehicles stop in the middle of the road. From there on, the cars are at the side of the road. (00:13:55 - 00:16:25)

Yoshi

Toad Warriors - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Mario, Luigi and Toad say goodbye to the Princess, Toad is standing at the front of their car, Luigi in the middle, and Mario at the back. Two shots later, the order changes to Mario at the front, then Toad, and Luigi at the back of the car. (00:15:10)

Yoshi

Toad Warriors - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When the Mario Bros. speed up their car to get to the rebel fort, in one shot both of Mario's hands are on the steering wheel, and in the next shot his right hand is on some sort of lever that makes the car go faster. Luigi's hands also change position in these shots. (00:17:45)

Yoshi

Toad Warriors - S1-E13

Other mistake: Koopa's army tries to stop the Marios from getting to the rebel fort by driving a truck and stopping it in the middle of the road. However, nobody is driving the truck. (00:18:25)

Yoshi

Toad Warriors - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: The Thunderbirdo is supposed to be pink. It is green when first visible after Koopa orders it up. It turns green again right before it explodes. (00:19:15 - 00:23:55)

Mario Mario: That's a heaping helpin' of moolah.

More trivia for The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!

Answer: "Club Mario" was reruns of the original show repackaged with new live action segments. It was a cheap way to present the old animated episodes as a new show. Club Mario was incredibly unpopular and eventually reruns of the original show with the Captain Lou Albano segments were aired in its place.
