Get your Lou Albano fix instantly on Netflix
I was born in 1987, making me too young for the first run of the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, but just the right age for the reruns that started in the early ’90s. Kids usually have a one-track mind, and before I learned of the wonder that was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I was fucking obsessed with Mario. I wanted to play as many Mario games as I could, I would order Mario popsicles from the ice cream truck, I lived and breathed Mario as much as possible. So it is safe to say that I am no stranger to the Super Mario Bros. Super Show.
So when I heard that Netflix added the part live-action, part animated series to the holy grail that is the Instant Watch section, I took notice. I have never tried to hide the fact that I am a huge nostalgia whore, and I wholly approve of any company or service that wants to help me relive my childhood, however briefly.
However, I am still bitter that Netflix took Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze off of Instant Watch. Dick move guys.
