There isn't a person in the world who doesn't like Mario. Along with his crew of jump-happy misfits, the plumber has entertained everyone from the elderly to kids who have no idea that Mario was in anything other than what's on the Wii or DS. If you go back to the days of 1980s video gaming, you can credit Mario for dethroning Pac Man as the most recognizable character. Even today, Mario in all of his stages of evolution is just as relevant as Mickey Mouse.
