Some facts about Mario. Also, some conjecture about Mario.
that he's fat
Here's something I know about Mario. When I was growing up in the 80s and 90s, Mario was a New York plumber, and when watching Super Mario Bros. Super Show, this was reinforced when Captain Lou Albano played the part of Mario. Then when Super Mario 64 came along, Nintendo gave Mario an actual in game voice and went with Charles Martinet. Personally, and to this day I can't stand the sound of Mario's "new" voice. Not a knock to Nintendo by any stretch, just a personal peeve haha. To be honest, I was quite taken aback when I learned that Charles Martinet was also the voice of the gravelly voiced Paarthurnax in Skyrim. Now THAT surprised me. For me, the voice of Mario will always be the Captain.
