I feel the Super Mario World cartoon feels the most like a kiddie cartoon, almost as if it were aimed at a younger audience that the two previous Mario cartoons. And the theme song is very annoying. I had read that the series legally had to be released as "Captain N and the New Super Mario World", but I wonder if that's true, considering they were able to release single-disc DVDs with Mario segments from all three series. Also, the last few half-hours of the series were just Super Mario World, with no Captain N (the Captain N part of the opening and closing was even removed). I have wondered why they paired the two cartoons in one half-hour. I know that Captain N. and the Mario 3 cartoon were paired together as an hour-long show, but still. I have a few theories of my own: They wanted to make a cartoon cashing in on the success of Super Mario World, and pairing it with another cartoon in a half hour was the best way to make it a quality series without feeling too rushed (they wouldn't need to make full half-hour stories, and wouldn't need as many half-stories). They wanted to continue Captain N and create a Mario World series, NBC didn't have room on the schedule for both, and so they chose to put them together to save schedule time. They produced all those Captain N episodes for the previous season, and needed to air them all, but didn't have enough for a full season. I also wonder why Captain N got top billing. I would think Mario was a bigger selling point, and not only was Captain N the second cartoon in each episode, but Captain N's part of the theme song was the second part.
