It should be noted that he played Luigi in Super Mario Bros. 3 and World, not the original Super Mario Bros. Super Show.

So sad. Part of my childhood. Sad

That's right. Danny Wells was the original Luigi and passed away in 2013. Personally, he was my absolute favorite voice for Luigi and I wish they had used his voice for the games.

Sad to hear.....

RIP dude

RIP... Sad

I preferred Captain Lou and Danny Wells as the voices of Mario and Luigi. But the SMB3 voices were still decent. Sad that he died before his time.


That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario!

RIP :\
