In the intro movie to the game, Luigi is seen in his house, asleep on his chair. Above his fireplace, mounted on a plaque, are a golden plunger and wrench.

What is the significance of this? Besides being a callback to him being a plumber of course.

In the Super Mario Bros. Super Show episode "Plumber's Academy", Mario and Luigi receive these one-of-a-kind golden tools when they rescue Gorbachev and Reagan from a flood. Considering this game's many references to past Mario things, plus the fact that it was made by american devs, it's not at all that much of a stretch to consider it to be a reference, as opposed to a coincidence.

But this raises some possibly disturbing implications. If this game is considered canon, then by extension, the Super Show is canon as well. Which means that places like "Rap Land", "Crime Land", The Mushroom Space Colonies exist, and at one point, Bowser took over Brooklyn.

That is all.

I can see it being a reference snuck in by the devs but that doesn't automatically mean it's all canon.

Hahaha me and my best friend watched that whole thing several times one sitting each time.

Oh God he hates it more than he hates the Prinnies on Disgaea and the Zelda show and CD-I games combined XDDD
It's not you liking a game, it's you thinking it's so mainstream everyone played it.
