SuperMarioLogan (often shortened to SML), is an American YouTuber who makes plush videos. He uses plushies from Mario games, and has some toys that are non-Nintendo as well. He also does reviews, updates, etc. His reviews were on his SuperLuigiLogan channel, which was once his new main channel. He started making videos in late 2007. His entire channel has been sadly demonetized since late 2017. On the SuperLuigiLogan channel the content ranges from SML Movies to SML Reactions, where Logan gives Behind the Scenes and facts when filming certain episodes. He currently uploads his current SML plush videos on the SuperBowserLogan channel, since July 2019.

Plot

Plush versions of Mario characters, and some non-Mario characters, have adventures at their home and at school.

Why It Used to Be Super

  1. It takes an interesting approach of making a Super Mario sitcom with plushies, and it actually works quite well.
  2. It started off as a channel with some teenagers making home movies with plush toys just for fun and slowly became an enjoyable plush series as time passed on.
    • Because of this, it pioneered plushtubing and made a universal influence in inspiring many people out there to making plush videos.
  3. There are quite a lot of interesting, memorable, funny, and likable characters such as:
    • Chef Pee Pee
    • Bowser (before his flanderization)
    • Bowser Junior (despite being overused during 2014-2015 and having some unlikable moments)
    • Cody
    • Mario (before his flanderization)
    • Brooklyn T. Guy
    • Mr. Goodman (before his flanderization)
    • Mama Luigi
    • Craig the Devil
    • Charleyyy
    • Doofy The Dragon
    • Jackie Chu
    • Rosalina (before her flanderization)
    • Black Yoshi
    • Harold Wilfred
    • Sonic the Hedgehog
    • Toad
    • Tony The Tiger
    • Shrek
    • Kung Pow
    • Minnie Mouse
    • Hansel
    • Patrick
    • Tyrone
    • Dr. Fredrick Finkleshitz
    • The Alien
    • Principal Steinbeck
    • Tom Brady
    • D-Money
    • Simmons
    • Wario
    • Loan Dolphin
    • Taco Bell Chihuahua
    • Donkey Kong
    • Woody
    • Luigi
    • Chris The Cucumber
    • Screwball
    • Yoshi
    • Felipe
    • The Angry Birds (Big Red, Speedy, Blue, Taliban, Poof, Tony, & Chad)
    • The Bad Piggies
  4. There are quite a lot of funny jokes and puns that doesn't need to rely on filler, inappropriate jokes, non-stop swearing, and gross-out humor to be funny.
  5. Decent video editing and special effects.
  6. Some videos tell good morals, such as "do not change who you are", "don't play with guns" and etc.
  7. Aside from the main channel, the secondary channels such as SuperLuigiLogan (which was used for bonus content and BTS videos), SuperPeachLogan (which was used to make videos of Logan's cat, the channel was soon changed into Chilly's channel) and SuperBowserLogan (which was used as a gaming channel) are also fun to watch.
  8. The channel has spawned a lot of unique and memorable series, including:
    • Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures
    • Black Yoshi and the Birds
    • Shrimpo Hunter
    • Mario and Bowser's Stupid and Crazy Adventure
    • Luigi's Mansion
    • The Pokémon Series
    • American Idol
    • Chef Pee Pee Quits (except for Parts 1 and 3)
    • Bowser Junior's Summer School
    • Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
    • Bowser Junior's First Grade
    • Bowser Junior Goes To Military School
  9. Whilst the Mario characters don't have the same personalities as they do in the video games, their new personalities here actually somewhat fit their character.
  10. Despite focusing more on comedy, this series does tackles personal problems every now and then such as suicide, addiction, PTSD, neglect and abuse.
  11. It manages to have a nostalgic Nintendo game feel to it, despite the characters not having the same personalities and also the fact it focuses on non-Nintendo characters and plots at times.
  12. The voice acting is amazing, Chris, Zeke, and Lovell are the most notable when it comes to great acting.
  13. There are a handful of amazing and decent episodes like:
    • SUPER MARIO GOT MILK (which is a decent way to start off the series as a whole)
    • A Retarded Beginning

Bad Qualities

  1. Most of the videos overuse the some of the same stock tracks from the YouTube Audio Library, which can get quite repetitive.
  2. Some characters are unlikable and/or annoying:
    • Despite being good in 2008- early 2011, Bowser was flanderized in 2011 and went from a menacing villain in the "Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures" series to Mario and Luigi to a short-tempered and lazy couch potato who frequently abuses his own son and his personal chef, Chef Pee Pee. Luckily, he has made some slight improvements to his characters as of 2017.
      • Bowser is also shown to hate black people, which is ironic as not only is his voice actor a black person, his idol, Charleyyy, is black.
    • Bowser Junior, while not a bad character during this point, can be quite bratty and annoying in some episodes, not to mention he became one of the most overused characters during 2014-2015.
    • Joseph is a bit unlikable, and his personality is very flat compared to his friends.
    • Peach is mean-spirited and annoying.
    • While Shrek is still a funny character, his gross antics can be extremely annoying at times.
    • While this was the intention of her character, Cody's mother, Judy can be very annoying and unlikeable at times.
    • Starting in 2011, most of the SML fandom started to hate Peach because she dumped Mario over him being bald.
    • Ever since "Jeffy's Cellphone", Rosalina has been flanderized into being a nagging, borderline abusive housewife who rarely acts as a nice girl anymore who defends Jeffy.
    • While Mr. Goodman still has his fans, his character shifted into a corrupt multi-billionaire stereotype as of "The Koopalings Part 2", which has made him hated by many.
    • David Winkle is pretty unlikable due to his perverted actions.
    • Toadette is unlikable due to her annoying voice and being perverted to Bowser Jr.
    • Jeffy is arguably the worst one of them all, as he is incredibly annoying, unlikable, and gross. He is at his worst in "Jeffy's Bad Word", and "Locked Out". Though, he isn't as controversial as he is in 2017-present due to the fact not many of his jokes like him swearing were not that prominent, and he wasn't portrayed as a bratty kid, instead as a clueless, presumably disabled boy.
  3. The channel went downhill horribly after Jeffy started to become overused in 2017.
  4. Not even these eras of the channel are entirely perfect as they do have some flaws.
    • The videos from 2007-mid 2008 (often called "The Old Era") were mostly unfunny and boring compared to future eras of the series. Though, this is somewhat excusable as it was mostly kids goofing around.
    • 2016, while still good, is arguably considered the weakest of all the good years as not only this is the year Jeffy was introduced, but this also kickstarted problems that will become a norm since 2017 such as having even more flanderization and has few more bad episodes than the previous years such as "Mario The Babysitter", "Cody's Birthday", "Jeffy's Bad Word", "Jeffy's Favorite Song" and "Locked Out".
  5. There are even a handful of bad or mediocre episodes before 2017, some examples include:
  6. Because of Nintendo's cease and desist letter, SuperMarioLogan was deleted on July 8th, 2021, and SuperLuigiLogan's and SuperBowserLogan's videos were privated in August and September 2021, respectively. However, SBL's videos were restored in November of that year, likely because Logan removed Nintendo characters from their titles and thumbnails; many of SLL's videos were restored in October 2022 for unknown reasons before the channel was deleted entirely on March 19, 2023.
    • Almost all of the SML videos on every channel have been reuploaded by fans, meaning this channel's videos will still be around.
  7. Though rare (especially in comparison to the 2017-present era), there have been several instances of mean spirited/gross out moments in this era, some examples include:
    • In "Jeffy's Bad Word", where Mario becomes hated and shunned on a global scale because he spanked Jeffy for saying f slur.
    • In "Shrek's Crappy Wish", where Shrek forces Mario to do stuff he doesn't want, like riding on him, and even forced him to Eat his crap.
    • In "Locked Out", where Jeffy locks Mario out of the house just because he wouldn't give him desert, and got him arrested at the ending.
    • In "The Drone", where the titular drone cuts off Bowser Junior's tongue and Chef Pee Pee's eye with blood coming out.

Reception

2007-mid 2008 (sometimes referred to as The Old Era by fans) got mixed reception from SML fans who considered it not as good than the future eras, as they also considered some of the early videos unfunny, boring or either decent. Due to the fact all of them are just kids goofing around.

2008-2012 (sometimes referred to as The Classic Era or The Golden Era by fans) was a well-received era by many SML fans, mainly because of "Mario & Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures" which was very popular during that era.

2013-2015 (sometimes referred to as The Junior Era by fans) initially garnered mixed reception from SML fans, with some considering this era just as good as the previous era and some fans despising this era and criticized this era because of Bowser Junior becoming the most overused character by 2014, some weak episodes and many old characters wouldn't get the spotlight. However, in more recent years, this era is regarded much more positively in hindsight, especially when compared to The Jeffy Era (2016-present), and is now widely agreed to be part of SML's golden era, with 2014 and 2015 in particular often being considered two of the best SML years.

2016-present (sometimes referred to as The Jeffy Era by fans) at first received mixed reception from SML fans who still considered just as good as the previous years. But ever since 2017, this era would recieved get a mixed to negative reception amongst SML fans as it was criticized for Jeffy becoming the most overused character and no other characters focused on besides him, Mario, and Junior, lots of character flanderizations, gross-out and unfunny humor, and plenty of bad episodes.
