In Case You Missed It: Boo Diddly (Super Mario Bros. 3, 1988)

(Published October 17th 2016)

Happy Halloween everyone! Mario has to deal with some ghostly enemies, and we're looking back at one of the most iconic, Boo. First debuting in Super Mario Bros. 3, Boo was referred to as Boo Diddly, which you can see in the picture from the manual. It's definitely a pun on the name of the late rock and roll star Bo Diddley, or maybe he's a long lost relative? Either way, in his next appearance in Super Mario World his last name was dropped and now just goes by Boo.
