TechnoRetro Dads: The Wizard of Super Mario Bros. 3

by TechnoRetro Dads

Wesa back!  De boyish makin’ a big ole bombad comeback after one big daddy caught a cold and the other big daddio got thawed out after freezin’ cold.  Newsies, cereal (some terrible things going on there), games, and movies this Monday.

JediShua’s patience won out over shazbazzar’s cough and cold to bring about a bonus length episode of TechnoRetro Dads with a 30 year-old video game, a disgusting TikTok challenge, The Wizard, and the best ice cream cereal idea ever!

The football champions have been crowned.  Grammy and Oscar have had their nights.  Once again, it’s time for TechnoRetro Dads with an episode that’s longer than a commercial for Super Mario Bros. 3.

In the NEWS

  • Starbucks has secret drinks from a GFFA.
  • Galaxy’s Edge has new drinks, too.
  • New DeLoreans are coming.
  • Atari is in the hotel business.

We Love Our Cereal…

…but not the way everyone eats it.  JediShua reveals why #ChillYourBowl is better than a recent TikTok challenge as shazbazzar unveils the best ice cream cereal ideas ever will soon be in the freezer at your local grocery store.

TechnoRetro Arcade

In 1990, Mario and Luigi got new powers and costume changes in Super Mario Bros. 3.  The U.S. release of this game brought in lots of cash for Nintendo after the longest commercial in video game history was shown in theaters under the name The Wizard.

Romantic Scenes from Movies We Love

With Valentine’s Day coming this week, it’s a great time to look back at some great movies from our younger years to highlight some of the most romantic scenes in the movies we love.  It shouldn’t surprise anyone to learn that these movie scenes taught us life-long lessons about love.
