It Was a Thing on TV Twin Pack: Episodes 142 & 143 – The Super Mario Bros. Super Show/The Golden Palace

This week on It Was a Thing on TV we’ve got you covered from Mario to Betty White to Rowdy Roddy Piper to Don Cheadle. 

First, in honor of Mario Day last week, we pay our respects to this non-holiday by looking at the unforgettable Super Mario Bros. Super Show!  One of us never watched this on Fridays for reasons. 

Then, we look at the short-lived sequel to The Golden Girls in The Golden Palace. It looked good on paper.  Minus Dorothy, it was, for the most part, its predecessor.  But hoo boy, Urkel roflstomped The Golden Palace into foreclosure. 

Just a note the following episodes might have a hiccup here and there with hot mics while we were recording these episodes.
