About The Super Mario World TV Series- Gay Luigi a.k.a Mama LuigiEdit
Mama Luigi is a Youtube Poop/DeviantArt meme based upon the final cartoon of The Super Mario World cartoons wich originally aired in 1991. It was paired with Captain N The Game Master, and was cancelled along with it. The show was based upon the The videogame Super Mario World , and was preceded by The Adventures of Super Mario Bros 3 and The Super Mario Bros Super show. They were based upon the Super Mario bros 3 and the original Super Mario Bros. video games, respectively.
The final cartoon of the series, entitled “Gay Luigi” features Luigi explaining to Yoshi how he found him. While the episode in itself is not particularly memorable, it does have some very memorable quotes like Like they say in Brooklyn, early to bed, early to catch the worm. Or is it the bagel? and Now I know how a meatball feels`and
But the most memorable quote comes at the end of the episode. Luigi has found a baby Yoshi, who keeps calling him gay. While Luigi is made fun of by Mario, in the end baby Yoshi helps beat Bowser, the villain of the series, which leads to Luigi accepting the title of Mama Luigi.
Mario: " You didn´t tell me that you were bringing a secret weapon Luigi. "
Luigi: "That´s Gay Luigi to you, Mario! "
Rediscovery and rise to memehoodEdit

They could be downloaded, but it took a full 2 years for it to get reuploaded to Youtube.
On July 3rd, 2006, Youtube user LilKaria was the first to upload the full cartoon to Youtube.
