Super Mario World was the final cartoon in the Super Mario Bros. cartoon series produced by DIC Entertainment, having succeeded The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3. This one was, as its name implies, heavily based on Super Mario World for the SNES. It first debuted as a part of Captain N: The Game Master. In this series, Yoshi is able to speak, a rarity in Nintendo history. Like the SMB3 cartoon, it would also not have a live-action segment. It would use little from the past two games, being based only on Super Mario World. Unlike the last two cartoons, Toad does not physically appear in the show, as he was absent in the Super Mario World game since his final episode was "Super Koopa". He is replaced by Yoshi. However, all of the cast from The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 reprised their roles. The character designs from The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 are retained, but with some minor details added. The show also introduced a show-exclusive character named Oogtar, a clumsy cavechild.

In Pop Culture
This game has spawned a few memes. The first is Mama Luigi, in which Luigi has to care for Yoshi after he hatches from his egg. The second revolves around an episode in which Mario and his friends are being attacked by fireballs. Yoshi responds, "Fireballs! Yum!" and proceeds to eat them and spit them back at the enemies.
