This is an amazing segment from the 1988 Ice Capades on ABC. It wass hosted by Jason Bateman and Alyssa Milano. In it a Nintendo system they are playing backstage catches a virus, allowing for all of the characters to be released from the game and skate on ice. Christopher Hewett, better known as TV’s Mr. Belvedere, plays King Koopa. The Mario Brothers are summoned by Princess Toadstool (sporting a Mae West accent) to stop Koopa’s goons. Classic TV and a catchy theme. Oh, yes!
