Mario is awesome. Who else can shoot fireballs out of their nose? Mario’s come a long way since his debut in Donkey Kong in 1981 when he could only jump, climb ladders, and smash barrels with a hammer. In fact, when the game was first developed he didn’t have a name and was known by another moniker. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and you get a night with Princess Peach. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

What was Mario originally called? (and a hint: it is not fat Italian plumber)

Answer: Jumpman. He was named Mario after the the landlord of the Nintendo of America offices.
