Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario both need new cartoon series. Sure, Sonic X is still playing in an infinite loop on 4Kids, but it's been the same three seasons since 2005, and they keep trying to repackage the show like it has new episodes or something. Plus, it's high time for him to get a fresh take. Mario needs one even worse. Mario's last cartoon series was in 1993. And it's not like the character fell off the face of the Earth. At least Sonic has that long running Archie comics series. Mario hasn't had some sort of outside medium for decades, and he's the most famous video game character of all time. Every bit of the Mario cartoon series (except for the original Donkey Kong cartoon series from Saturday Morning Supercade) has been released on DVD. But we need a new project. A cartoon series or a comic book series like Sonic and now Mega Man have. Something with that much care in writing. Heck, PAC MAN is getting a new cartoon series. Why does Nintendo have such a joystick up itself that they won't license out another Mario cartoon? It's not like Pokemon was high art.
