Probably extremely successful looking individuals who wished that their son had a better job, and didn't drop out of his career choice in college/university to take a plumbing course. --- Happiest Song On The Planet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZi4VrAkm_E LoL - BlueberryHuggles
Mario's father, also named Mario Mario, is the original owner of the family business, Mario Bros. Plumbing. He named his second son after his late, great business partner, Luigi Gonzales. He looks like Talon from Zelda.
Mario's mother is named Pauline. She is somewhat graying, but would be considered by many to be a rather attractive lady, despite her age. She wears reds and pinks, and her good looks are due in no small part to gratuitously but carefully applied makeup.
And Mario's Godfather is none other than Cranky Kong. After some bad blood between them, Mario Sr. and Kong resolved their differences and became rather close friends, to the point that Mario Sr. chose Cranky, then known by his middle name of Donkey, to be his firstborn's godfather.
For clarification (I think the post I'm refering to is post #7), Cranky is DK's grandfather, not father. However, the idea that Jumpman and Pauline are Mario & Luigi's parents makes too much sense. --- Link in SSBSurvivor (eliminated) Not changing this sig line until dA and Yahoo Mail fix their mobile sites.
