Okay, imagine for a minute that Nintendo licensed Mario out to someone who just horribly, horribly abused it, created the schlockiest, most garbage product with it, and what do you call it?

No, it's not the Philips CD-I

It's the long forgotten, defective cousin AniMario!

I don't think Shigeru Miyamoto knew about this one. If he did, I think he would have died of shame before Mario ever made it to the 90s.
