I always thought of him as a first generation Italian-American. As for who can claim him, I suppose all of the above?

He's a Mushroom Kingdom native who spent much of his life in the Metro Kingdom.



Love and tolerate.

Italian American from Brooklyn NYC. Definitely never considered him to be born in Italy-Italy, Japan or the Mushroom Kingdom.

I figured it was some sort of Jewish sterotype which is why he's searching for gold coins.

Terrible jokes aside, he's an Italian American. His grand father is probably an immigrant and WWII veteran. Mario's father was also veteran of Viet Nam and started a plumbing business when he returned. Now his two sons run the business. This is where the movie will start...

I always thought that Mario's father  came back from Vietnam with a brand new plan and was growing magic mushrooms up in copperhead road, and granddaddy's habit of buying lots of copper pipe made people think they were plumbers.

Well if he is then so is Pauline, because she doesn't look like a New Donker.

I really need to travel to Italy-Italy sometime in my lifetime. Not many nations have a double-name, gotta be pretty impressive.

I wonder if plain old Italy holds a grudge against them, I mean like I'm sure some people think Italy-Italy is more Italian than Italy.

Well, I guess they probably call themself Italian-Italians, unlike plain old Italians living in Italy.



He's a fellow Italian American!

He's an Italian, created by a Japanese, who speaks English, but looks Mexican.
