Episode: Lust for Puppets
Segment Summary: Mario and Luigi stumble into the violent world of "Grand Theft City."
- Mashup of Super Mario Bros. and Grand Theft Auto.
- Yoshi goes to Raccoon City from Resident Evil and gets eaten by zombies.
Trivia / Info:
- Mario, Luigi and Yoshi all initially drive their go-karts from Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64.
- In addition, Mario and Luigi's "pimped out" car is Wario and Waluigi's car from Mario Kart: Double Dash.
- The scene in which Mario takes the drug and begins to hallucinate that pedestrians are coins is similar to the missions in Grand Theft Auto 5, "Grass Roots - Michael" and "Grass Roots - Trevor," where Michael De Santa and Trevor Philips hallucinate that people are Aliens and Clowns (however, it is impossible for this to have been copied, because GTA 5 came seven years after the release of Lust for Puppets, similarly, they could not have copied the idea of five-star and not six).
- This segment like Lust for Puppets was released in 2006, the same year which was released Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the sequel to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
- In the Spanish version of the segment (and episode), when Mario and Luigi out of the car repair shop, the theme song of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, starts playing.
- A girl appears in this segment, referring to all the games of Grand Theft Auto, haven't kids (except GTA A, GTA: VCS, and GTA IV).
- Mario and Luigi end up in Vice City (Based on 1980s Miami, Florida), the setting of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. The segment replicates several features from the series, including the five-star "Wanted" meter.
- YouTuber CNFanLDEalt2 uploaded the clip on his account, but Adult Swim, who has not uploaded the clip on either their website or their own YouTube account, rejected and deleted it, thus causing CNFanLDEalt2's account to be terminated on a third strike. The clip is still not uploaded, which was why CNFanLDEalt2 uploaded it in the first place.
- The sign that reads "Raccoon City" has the words "Residents Evil" underneath it.
- This is one of the most well-liked skits of the show.
Goofs / Nitpicks:
- It is to be noticed that, as the brothers rampage through the city, their wanted level only rises to five stars, but in every Grand Theft Auto besides Grand Theft Auto 1 and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the maximum wanted level is actually six stars. In Grand Theft Auto V, the maximum wanted level was five stars, as the number of installment.
- The setting resembles more Liberty City from Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (only in the mission "In the Beginning..."), Grand Theft Auto Advance, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (during the missions "Introduction" and "Saint Mark's Bistro"), Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City (Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned and Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony), and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.
- Mario and Luigi have four fingers in this segment, while in the games they have five, except for the CD-i spin-off game Hotel Mario.
- Yoshi's mouth is on his nose.
- When Mario and Luigi's "pimped out" car lifts on its wheels, clay can be seen underneath it.
- Near the end of the segment - Mario's final stand - his neck wire is exposed.
- When there is Mario music playing in this segment, it is off-key, however this might be to avoid copyright.
- The wrench Luigi holds before his death magically appears in his hand.
