Super Mario Brothers as Surrealist Art? | PBS Idea Channel

We all know the Mario Brothers, but have you ever stepped back and tried looking at those games from a fresh perspective? They're bananas! There are armored turtles who stand on their hind legs and steal princesses! There are bullets with faces! We make a case for Mario's inclusion into a canon of art wider than "Video Game": we think Mario is a piece of surrealist art.
