Happy Birthday, Mario!

(July 9) 1981Nintendo released the arcade game Donkey Kong (pictured), which featured the debut of Mario, “one of the most famous characters in video game history”

He wasn’t the headliner; that honor would go to the orange, barrel throwing, ape on the top girder.

Nevertheless, his sheer pluck and determination, to say nothing of his hammer wielding hi-jumping hi-jinks, would see him through to get the girl (Pauline), movie deals, and several successive video-game variations.

Proving once again that if you want to succeed, jump softly and carry a big hammer.
